Intel 3820 + Asus P9X79 problem!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

So I got this new rig:

Intel i7 3820 + Xigmatex Dark Knight (120 mm Night Hawk edition)
Asus P9X79
Corsair Vengeance CL10 16 gb 1600Mhz
MSi GTX 660Ti

TPU and EPU are enabled.

PROBLEM:

I'm currently running on AI Suite II Auto Tuning which is:
(these are straight out from AI Suite II)

~4675 mhz
BCLK: 126.375
CPU VCORE Voltage: 1,380 (too high?)
Multiplier: 37

I had freeze and BSOD two times while playing BF3 (full graphics, 60-65fps)!!
Highest CPU temps I've seen on full loads were 55-58 C.

When I first got this rig I wandered around in BIOS and tweaked several things but in the end I decided to let the AI Suite II itself auto tune my system. Was that a bad idea cause if this "auto tuning" messes up CPU and fails?

PS! If my rig is idle it drops down to ~1500 mhz. I think thats good but does this affect CPU in long term? Which setting enables that?

What I want?: Optimal and stable system with some decent OC. Like 4.4 - 4.6 GHz

Question is: What are the settings I need to tweak (BCLK, muliplier, volts, dram settings?) and should I tweak them in BIOS or in AI Suite II?


Does anyone have similar rig/BIOS and knows some stable system settings for average OC??


I also added some pictures from CPU-Z and AI Suite to get the picture.









Any help is welcome!!

I found similar post and it was really useful. http://www.overclock.net/t/1287471/3820-p9x79-deluxe-overclock-help

Gonna use recommended settings and see what happens.

hello,

I um am using a i5 3770 , with a Ausus p8z77-v (standard board). This is just my own personal experience. The autotune on mine works fine, yet does set my volts to high. It will never replace overclocking a little at a time to get the best ideal and stable speed.If Autotune does crash, or the overclock crashes the bios, it will reset itself back to the last stable clock.


So if I was you....I'd hit that default tab...and slowly keep bumping it up....keep pushing your multicore until it crashes...when that happens, bump up your volts...little bits at a time.I would worry bout those two buttons first...at some point you will hit the top. then I would mess with your other little bits and pieces to make where your ceiling as stable as ya can, such as offsetting , etc....

Your temps look a little warm to me too, but that's me....Im sure someone could say why your settings are perfect as well...but I try to stay under 35c degrees , and warnings to go off if it hits 40c if it or the motherboard goes past them temps. Im not saying your in any danger but then again...58 degrees Celsius is equal to 136.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Using the formula F = (9/5 x C) + 32 F = 104.4 + 32 = 136.4

That sounds almost enough to cook a egg on it......I would consider at least a closed looped watercooling system. Hope something in this helps.

Thanks Whodat1972 smile.gif

I've heard before that this auto tune will set volts too high so I altered them a bit. But right now I'm running on setup I found on this forum (the link above) and it works well..so far smile.gif
I think that my temps are alright cause reading diffrent forum posts I've seen that users are calmly oc'ing around 70 C. While playing bf3 on full graphics I get temps about ~45 C

On Asus auto tune setup I used Prime95 to see if it's stable but I've heard that using prime and similar strees tests can seriously shorten hardware's life or even damage them. I mean these tests really push CPU & etc to their limits.

Is it true or are all these stress tests harmless to hardware? Am I too cautious and should I be more straightforward about overclocking and experiencing diffrent settings?

That Mark guy from Asus says it can be harmfull actually...there not designed ( Ivy bridge, sandybridge) to run all cores all the time hard like that. But I think dude also goes on to say it doesn't hurt it once in awhile.....and your best results will be what you can run doing what you normally do on the computer. If that don't crash it, then its stable to you. Honestly, I just run a couple high end games. Bumps my clocks up just fine. And SuiteII is spose to be able to be "calibrated" to some degree to show more closer temps.

I wouldn't think the "Intel Burn-In" would harm it, since its a very quick test on them. But of course your not going to get the readings, temps, which I hear are more accurate using prime95. But your SuiteII should be doing that.

Don't use an Auto Tune program. You need to do this through BIOS for maximum gains and stability. 1.38V is really high for 4.6Ghz.

You can change your volts without going to the BIOS screen every time using SuiteII in manual mode while the OS is in operation. I like this option because you can almost tell right away if there is going to be some sort of stability issue. Saves a lot of loading time. Why I like the Asus boards biggrin.gif

I wouldn't be overclocking with tuning software period, Learn how to overclock with the settings in the bios it will help you much more in the long run. It's really not that difficult

Thank you guys!

It seems that I've found my stable oc and did it via BIOS. System is running at 4625 MHz and VCORE is 1.360 but I think I can alter it even more.
