i7-950 on GA-X58A-UD3R with 12GB RAM

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm trying the whole night to overclock it to 4 Ghz but with no success. I've read dozens of guides, dozens of changes but nothing. (i'm a little noob smile.gif ) I have the following specs

Motherboard: GA-X58A-UD3R
CPU: i7-950
GPU: GTX-650
RAM: 6x2GB (3 of them are 8-8-8-20, the other 3 are 9-9-9-24, with 1600Mhz on 1.65V)
PSU: 750W

As i said i've tried many methods but i had the following problems
1) Computer shut down immediately after power on it
2) Wont boot on Windows
3) BSOD
4)On prime test BSOD

Can you help me please? i'm lost on the RAM timings, and on the voltages. I ask here because i end up looking for solutions, which wont work smile.gif

First thing I would suggest is raising your QPI voltage (not sure what Gigabyte calls it... QPI/VTT) to 1.275v - 1.35v to help the integrated memory controller (IMC) deal with 6 memory modules being used. Running 6 modules will stress the IMC, and your potential overclock.

run CPU-Z and verify what exactly your ram is running at. Its under the "Memory" tab.

I gave up on settings because every time either my pc wont boot up either BSOD

(i've made photo albums on imgur)
Here are my BIOS settings

I will look into this as soon as I get home from work tonight.

Just a quick note. It looks like your ram is running at DDR3 1066 speeds.

Thank you so much! As i read somewhere my rams is those that will work as adverttised on 1.65V and on my bios settings the DRAM is 1.5V. Maybe i made something wrong or i dont understand very good.

The ram will default to the 1066 speeds until you manually set them. You would need to increase the QPI to 1.30v-ish and the vdimm (ram voltage) to 1.65v manually. Then you need to set the speed to 1600 and the timings to the loosest (higher number) of 9-9-9-24.

See if you can get the ram to run at that first before OCing the CPU. because once you start OCing the CPU, you will have to lower the ram speeds as you increase the bclk (base clock). The ram and CPU speeds are based off this clock speed. So increase it, with the ram divider and CPU multiplier , will increase the overall speed of both. So lets say you set the ram speed to 1600, then increase the bclk from 133 to 180, the ram will jump to something like 1880 (made up number, I don't know your current divider). So you would need to lower the ram speed to keep it under 1600 while OCing the CPU.

Ok.. So i increase the RAM speed from System Memory Multiplier, increase the QPI/Vtt to 1.30V and set the timings to 9-9-9-24. I'm doing it now and i'll get back with news.

I've made those changes.. here are the screenshots

I dont know how to see if its on 1600

EDIT:

i searched how do understand it

i saw DRAM Freq and i multiply it with 2
799.4*2=1598.8

EDIT AGAIN:
BSOD
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0x000000d1

and

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA 0x00000050

also i run memtest86 with no errors but after 5-10 min on windows BSOD
Quote:
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
Quote:
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x

i raised the QPI/VTT by one value, when i raised ram Voltage i had immediate BSOD. now i'm waiting

EDIT:
after random reboots, i putted the default settings again because my computer was unstable

You might have I set the QPI to 1.35v. 1.40v is max, so you are getting towards the limit of what you should set. Ou are mixing different types of RAM, so that could also be a problem. If it still errors out, I recommend pulling out the 1600 cas 9 kit and buying the same 1600 cas 8 kit, or vice versa.

The last build I helped a friend with was using 6x4Gb modules, which needed 1.275v to QPI.. With a 4.0 GHz OCed i7 920.
