Ring is the same as Uncore? Help with Gigabyte Z87 OC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I can't seem to get an answer in another thread so hoping you guys can help.

I'm trying to do this easy as possible w/out the stress of potentially having to do a windows reinstall or anything. I'm going for a small overclock as I do not have air conditioning. 4.2Ghz is all I'm shooting for right now. I watched this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mLP3pGvnDU and granted it's for a MSI mobo it seemed to have some decent info. I have some questions now relating things to my UD4H. I'm a visual guy so reading Sins guide is great doesn't help make it click like a video.

I cannot find Ring Ratio or Ring Ratio Cache on the UD4H, is Ring Ratio called Uncore because I know Gigabyte has Uncore. I think the MSI BIOS are genius it's all right there and you don't need to bounce around your BIOS everywhere to find anything.

This is what I have so far when I find everything let me know if I should make some adjustments.

Baseclock 100
CPU Ratio 42

Ring ratio 41 (100 Mhz below base clock)

Cpu voltage 1.090 (seems safe bet)
Cpu voltage mode adaptive (No idea what this is called in Gigabyte or where yet)

CPU Ring Voltage Mode: Adaptive
CPU Ring Voltage 1.065

Anyone know where to find Internal VR efficiency? Do you guys disable it?
Is Intel Smart Connect anywhere? I could not find it but I would like to disable it as well.

Thank you

Yes, ring is also uncore. You can find the setting on the Advanced CPU page of the Performance tab (if I remember the names right).

I would start with the uncore set to 36x, just to be sure that isn't causing stability issues, then when you get the voltage dialed in for 42x you can try increasing it back up. It makes almost no performance difference, so no reason to push it unnecessarily.

Gigabyte doesn't hae an adaptive mode, if you set a manual voltage and then enable the power saving (EIST, C1E, C3 and C6/7) it'll downclock and downvolt. You may need to manually enable those instead of using Auto though.

Just so you know, 1.09V may not be enough Vcore for 42x, so if you crash with x124 errors try rasing the Vcore first.

No idea on VR efficiency - I'd never heard of it until I installed Intel's Extreme Tunig Utility. I guess you could try enabling it from there, if you really wanted t. Smart Connect is in one of the Peipheral tab pages I think, but I think it is disabled by default.

In terms of uncore why would one want to have it match or not match current cpu speeds. The reviewer I watched said it was better to have it clocked 100Mhz below cpu speed. Is there any merit to this?

:O wow, I haven't been keeping up with the consumer side of things, can't believe consumers are getting ring voltage control... but ...

Ring is 100% uncore.

Ideally you'd want it 1:1, as that provides the best performance. However, having it set too high can seriously affect stability when overclocking, and it doesn't really make much performance difference in the real world. So if your options were 44 core/44 cache or 45 core/36 cache, you'd get better real-world performance from the 45/36 option.

Couldn't tell you the reason why the reviewer would make such a bold claim... Core/Uncore speeds being the same should work just fine smile.gif

Whats with 36 everyone keeps saying? why not 44 core and 40 uncore or whatever is stable? Why is 36 a special number? Like I said I'm not going for broke here just a simple 4.2-4.4Ghz, what is the likelihood I can have the uncore set to the same?

I used 36x as an example, but that number became popularized because on Gigabyte boards setting 34x or 35x (depending on the chip) would cause the uncore to turbo to a higher value, thus defeating the purpose of setting it manually. But you can pick whatever number you like.
