How can my friends i7-950 (not overclocked) be faster than mine? - Page 3

@bios settings

I was looking around in the bios settings and saw this: DRAM Frequency: AUTO (i can put it to 800mhz, 1066mhz, 1333mhz, 1600mhz, 1866mhz, 2133mhz and 2400mhz)
and this: UCLK Frequency: AUTO (i can put it to 1600mhz, 1733mhz, 1866mhz, 2000mhz, 2133mhz, 2266mhz etc)

is this something i should change to make sure its not downclocked?

@gambi2004, i also saw that option "Ai Overclock Tuner" i got it on "Auto" and i will try "X.M.P" should i closely monitor my CPU heath during this time?\

The memory tab is uploaded in post #13 called test.jpg,
the previous info you asked was not(i think), but it's all good.
I don't mind repeating something twice at all, since you are all so nice to help me with my problem. It is something I do gladly with this great help the community shown me so far smile.gif

I do agree that it looks like memory timings, but have you checked your temperatures to make sure it's not just throttling back or something? If this were the problem you and your friend probably wouldn't have the exact same P95 times. Still, the 950 is a hot 130W processor and it can't hurt to check your temperatures.

X M P should only tune the RAM.. but ofc, it never hurts to keep an eye on temps wink.gif
I know you posted memory tab earlier.. but after you enable XMP, the info in this tab will change.. (hopefully for the better, lol)

XMP should work it all out for you.. no need to change around a lot of settings if it works..
You can play around with those sittings if XMP dosnt fix your problem smile.gif witch im pretty confident it will.

This. Select the XMP ratio and the UCLK should be double what your memory speed is. The UCLK is the northbridge speed.

If you're running 1600 memory select 3200 for the UCLK

I just put it on X M P in bios and i got this error when my pc started to start: "Overclocking failed! please enter setup to reconfigure your system" so I put it back to AUTO
it was a bit scary, this is just optimizing the settings and not really overclocking right? like no danger?

my tempratures are GPU:44C CPU:37C while my fan speed is on like 15% of its full power for noise/energy savings, i tune it up whenever i see the temps go up but its steady.

Youre on the latest bios correct? What memory do you have? Also dont attach the image with the paperclip use the icon to the left of the papercli[p to attach

Ok.. it seems like my BIOS is rly out of date: version: 0901 date: 02/24/10
this is my current ram: CORSAIR CMT6GX3M3A2000C8 6GB (3x2)
2048MB 2000MHZ 8-9-8-24

since I have a i7 should i download this one @BIOS (Intel 6/7 & X79 series) @ http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/Utility.aspx ?
its 2012 so seems old but its the only i7 supported one i can find on that site. and after that I try again with X M P ?
