Overclocking i7-3820 on msi x79 mobo, settings are different.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, I used the "official i7-3820" thread but my post are being ignored/swamped by an ongoing discussion so I'm creating this one.

I'm having difficulties getting an overclock to work. Some guides speak of adjusting the strap, others the base clock. I've tried just about everything and nothing holds. It always gives me three failed boots and goes back to defaults. I'm sure there's a setting that's supposed to be on/off that I'm missing.

My bios looks differently than the most used ones and values are named differently, so when people tell me what to change, they aren't using the names that this bios uses!

This is how my bios looks. Right now I just want to get a higher bckl or strap bootable. Letting everything on auto doesn't work either. I have no idea why it's not working.









Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Set CPU Base clock back to 100 MHz, Adjust CPU ratio to 43 (maximum). Adjust memory speed to the actual speed of your mem sticks.
Set core CPU voltage to 1.3v, set power duration limits (short & long) to 250, leave everything else on auto & reboot

I should have mentioned, getting 4.3ghz (43 ratio) is no problem, it does it fine on auto. I cant get anything over that though. Once I start messing with the strap it wont boot. I'm afraid of just upping the voltages everywhere without knowing what I'm doing hoping it'd work. Not going to experiment and watch it burn.
