The Issue with the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard not holding OC Settings I think I solved it finally - Read On

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have been hearing on countless occasions and forums that users of the ASUS Deluxe P9X79 main board will not hold the settings when over clocking. The quirk is this, Each setting you have to manually enter a number figure in YOU MUST PRESS ENTER AFTERWARDS!!!
Most boards I have worked with you just type in the values and arrow down and all is well. Well not with this board. I got it to overclock stable on the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe board with the Intel 3930k CPU at a stable 4.8 Ghz

Here are the following settings I used

1. Open up the Advanced BIOS settings
2. Go to AI Tweaker
3. Set your AI Over Clock Tuner to = Manual
4. Set your BCLK Frequency = 100.000
5. CPU Strap leave at Auto
6. Clock Gen Full Reset leave Enabled
7. Turbo Ratio set to = By All Cores
8. By All Cores (Can Adjust in OS) Set to = 48
9. clock Gen Filter Enabled
10. Memory Frequency = Set to what ever speed your memory is ie: PC1600 set to 1600 ie: PC2033 Set to 2033 and so on
11. EPU Power Saving Mode set to Disable
12. Go to CPU Performance Settings (Its towards the top of the screen) Set it to 48
13. CPU VCORE Voltage = Manual
14. CPU VCRE Manual Voltage set to = 1.250 This can vary as your board may throttle back down to a lower frequency if the VCore Voltage is too low, on the other end of the spectrum if it is too high you will have heating issues. Here is where I went with it in my stepping
a. Auto, No Go not stable and throttled back to stock frequency
b. 1.100 Remained stable for a bit but got flakey and restarted
c. 1.150 Began Stable but only at 4.5 Ghz
d. 1.175 Stable at 4.5 Ghz
e. 1.200 Flakey at 4.8 Ghz
f. 1.450 Very stable at 5.2 Ghz but running very hot ( Not Damaging Hot but I was not comfortable)
g. 1.250 Very Stable at 4.899 Ghz

Multiplier of 100.000 and Vcore of 1.250 running at 38' C to 45' C Over a 4 hour period of time. I have created 2 separate BIOS Setting profiles one for 4.2 Ghz and one for 4.899 Ghz. The reason as when I am not doing anything taxing I will run the lower speed and when I am running a big BluRay Job or something taxing I will use more horsepower. Another nice part about the UEFI bios mutiple configurations.

15. CPU VCCSA Voltage Leave at Auto (I have found the less you dick with voltages the better off you are)!
16. CPU VCCSA Leave at Auto
17. DRAM Voltage Leave at default
18. DRAM Voltage (Leave at Default
19. CPU PLL Leave at Default
20. VTCPU Voltage Leave at Default
21. PCH 1.1v Voltage Leave at Default
22. PCH 1.5v Voltage Leave at Default
23. VTT DDR Voltage CHA-CHB Leave at Auto
24. VTT DDR Voltage CHC-CHD Leave at Auto

With these settings I am running stable at 45 - 48' C Which is not too bad. I finally figured out the Enter after each setting by looking at someone else's numbers and they were a different color and I am going Hmmmm
somthing aint rite here, that is when I set a value and pressed ENTER and it turned the same color as his and I said I got ya now. and it did work.

So there is how ya set AI Tweaker Settings in the ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Board

Lol I have heard a few people having issues but I love this board since I purchased and installed it i never had any issues at overclocking or settings not holding. I do work in IT though, the only thing I could see people having trouble with is understanding settings if your a newbie to overclocking. I think you need a bit of knowledge and understanding of bios settings. I know I sound like a fanboy but being able to tweak and change almost every cpu or dram setting is a big plus for me. It's the first bios I haven't been bored with after 2momths.

Yep a very forgiving yet flexible feature packed main board, I shied away from the Rampage once I found out the tricks to the Deluxe I love it!
