Ideally I would like to hit 5GHz stable but without going FSB route I don't think I can do it. I tried VCore 1.513 for 200x25 and Windows wouldn't boot and I don't really want to put voltage higher because of temps. I currently hit 61C during IBT on Package temps.
Anyone got any idea on timings for my memory (in sig) so I can do an FSB OC? I already tried increasing FSB to nudge the CPU over 5GHz but again windows wouldn't boot, I suspect because the RAM was failing (2136MHz at the FSB I was using).
Any advice appreciated.
Have you figured out your "throttling" issue yet? I've seen you post it many times over the past 10-15 pages.. and even with a 5ghz oc and other validations..until you figure that issue it wont be a "true" oc.. especially performance wise...if it keeps dropping the multi which will in turn drop your overall clock frequency WAY down..in your case to x7...which is only 1.4GHz!...thats A LOT!
FYI i had the same issue with my UD3 Giga mobo for the first week I had it and was so very frustrated with that very issue.. it appears you found the "key" bios setting to solve it but it also appears that may not have worked for you..? that being the HPC setting...because Rev3 boards don't have APM to turn off ...so HPC has to be ENABLED...aside from having all the other power saving features disabled of course...after I was told about the HPC, everything worked great! to start doing all your other overclocking and tweaking and all that.. you really should get that issue ironed out first.. make sure for all your oc and STABILITY testing (to truly know), that your multi and main core clock is NOT changing at all.. it has to stay at the FULL 4.5 or 4.8 or 5Ghz the WHOLE time (whatever your oc is)... then you know that the throttling issue it solved..
ps.. other then the bios being a bit different and have a few different settings.. and the voltages being "offsets" rather then actual specific numbers and some slight vdroop and vrm controls..it's a great board and can oc very well. It's no longer my main board for me 8350 but it did do well and is now working amazing for my older Phenom chipEdited by electech13 - 3/25/13 at 12:25am
