3930K won't overclock, + serious issues.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Rig is in the sig.

So I got everything up and running, everything is fine. It will run PERFECTLY at stock. BUT..

- I can only SLI when I have the cards sandwiched together in the first and second slot. (Yes, they are all turned out and functioning properly, just can't SLI)
- PC will BSOD different error codes upon shutdown. (RAM, vcore, corrupt Windows files etc..)
- I CANNOT overclock my 3930K for anything. Turned off all the power saving features, turned up the multi, changed the vcore, it will not go past stock speeds. Turbo boost won't even work.

So I've pretty much narrowed it down to the IMC/Chip itself, bad RAM, or the motherboard.

I'm just looking for suggestions and stuff to try. I've had 2 sleepless days trying to figure out what's going on and I've gotten pretty much nowhere. I'll be calling EVGA tonight to see if they can give me some ideas but as always I have faith in the brilliant community here.

Thanks,
Dustin

Edit - I've already tried PM'ing JacobF here on OCN but have yet to receive a response so literally ANYTHING helps.

Edit #2 - The board is running the latest BIOs, etc.

Edit #3 - Went ahead and ordered a Rampage 4 Formula. Gonna send in my FTW for RMA once I have that board then the FTW will be for sale. tongue.gif

Some X79 boards require more ram voltage to run stable on all 4 channels even at thier default speed (you're in quad mode right?).
Try increasing the memory voltage on all channels (A B & C D) to 1.53v. Might even solve your SLI issue (unstable ram does wierd things)
As for oc'ing, have you changed the "Short' & 'Long' power limits? if not, change it from auto to 300 on each.

As for oc'ing, have you changed the "Short' & 'Long' power limits? if not, change it from auto to 300 on each.

I just set the XMP Profile and left it at that, and I didn't know there was a setting to put it in quad? I have all 4 sticks in the motherboard if that's what you're asking. Now that you mention it, it's a 16.v kit 11-11-11-30 timings, but it was running 1.5v 1600 11-11-11-28 when I checked it in the BIOs. Changed to 1866 with XMP even though it's a 2133 kit. And SLI works, just only in the first 2 lanes which sucks because the cards are practically touching and my backplates come in tomorrow which wouldn't be good for that setup.

I've never seen the Short & Long term power limits in the BIOs. Just some vdroop options, BLK, the usual. Unless I overlooked it due to frustration, I have yet to see anything like that. However, it will read that my CPU is overclocked in the BIOs but it won't go passed stock in Windows even when running P95.

Everything runs fine at stock. So if you don't have any helpful ideas and or opinions then please don't post.

I'm sharing my experience. I had the same board for a week. Same exact issues. No help from EVGA either.

I had 2 6970 Lightnings and CF wouldn't work unless they were just like your GPU's. I ended up getting a Rampage IV and all my issues were solved. I don't understand what happend to EVGA's motherboard devision but they have take a nose dive lately.

Awesome.. Didn't mean to offend if I did, just really, really frustrated. I also called tech support, all I got was "RMA".

Gonna try and see if I can't fix this up myself. If I can't I'll just see what I can do about getting the R4E or R4F.

Can't try anything for another 3 hours so guys, I'm taking in everything I can.

I was told to use EVGA Eleet to overclock from EVGA. Which I thought was unacceptable, but if you don't mind OS overclocking it might work for you

Also dumb question but are all the PCI-E switches in the "on" position?
