Memory ratio to BLK and Intel OC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have achieved a nice OC on my old 930, 3.8ghz stable which is a great place for me between heat and performance.

The issue is no matter how hard I play with my ratios, BLKs etc I cannot get the RAM to run faster than 1440.

If I reset the bios, enable XMP on the Corsair Vengeance 12gb tri channel then yeh sure, I achieve 2000+ on the ram, I can then do a small overclock on the CPU from 2.86 to say 3ghz.

But noway can I get close to my 3.8ghz obviously because of the ram ratio.

By changing the ratios on my first described setup running 3.8 I cannot get the RAM higher and posting.

What I am missing?

As you can tell I am new to OCing this past year and I am missing some key points here.


Any help appreciated, I will take SC of bios and post all settings later.

Thanks.

Coops.


Update:

Ratio 22 x 181 blk : 3.98ghz

QPI 36

Uncore 16

xmp disabled.

spd multiplier 8 - 1448mhz


Loadline lvl 2, cpu core 1.3625v


Mobo: X58A-UDR3 v2 Gigabyte

Well your system could just be weird for starters.

A couple things you might want to try.

socket 1366 seems to gravitate towards odd number multipliers in my experience. Having worked with 5 separate systems, they ALL seem to work better with a 21 or 23 multiplier. 20 is fairly stable, but 22 never worked out. 21 was generally the magic multiplier.

The other issue is that corsair ram is probably one of the least OC friendly ram dimms on the planet. Anything different from 1333, 1600, 1866, and so on never seems to turn out well for me, or anyone else that I have met. Try to make sure your BCLK is set up in such a way that you can get REALLY close to a standard speed and try that.

Try and leave your memory settings at stock and just focus on the speed setting.

Make sure LLC is off or disabled. LLC is a big problem child when trying to go for higher overclocks.


That all being said,your motherboard is not exactly the best mobo for overclocking. You could just be pushing the board way too hard.

Really appreciate your input, thank you.

I am running the magic 21. Windows tools were throwing me off.

I appreciate what you are saying about corsair ram but technically i am not trying to OC it. Just get it somewhere to it's advertised speeds. But what ram do you recommend?

I am not familiar with LLC so I am researching this now, thank you. Is that the same as my mobo option for Loadline being set to Level 2 do you think?

It would be exciting to upgrade, but I have just forked out on two GTX 680 4gb and just completed my 3x Dell 3007wfp 30" 2560x1600 monitor setup smile.gif As you can imagine this cost a fair whack.

New six cores look perfect for me as I do so much rendering and video based work.

Thanks again for your input. I am going to start by copying the XMP settings but doing them manually - then beginning my OC process from that starting point to see if I can achieve a final resting point. I would say I should be able to find a balance to get 1800hz ram, that would make me happy.


Best,
Coops.
