[Official] Asus Rampage IV Black Edition Owners Club! - Page 625

post #6241 of 14772
I am a bencher on the HWbot so i am always looking for that bit extra!! Hence the reason for this Motherboard and the CPU, by the way you and everyone did a great job with this Mobo overall. I can not fault it from my side and this is my 4th or 5th Asus motherboard, which all have worked perfectly for me.

Great job thanks and keep up the good work,

AJ.

2) I have Corsair's 64GB kit running at DDR3-2133 on my own board here at home. No issues so far, just loaded XMP and went.

3) Not sure on you not being able to run more than 4.5G. VCore, VCCSA and VTT is really all these CPUs need to get from A-B for raw freq. Any time I have gone over 4.5G on CPUs that are capable, one gets to the desktop...

1) I only meant since you mentioned it was mainly for SB-E
2) Same speeds as me at least.
3) I'm just not able to understand how a chip can hit 4.5 w/ ease and very little bump in voltage but anything after is a failure even by .1 I just feel at that point I'm doing something wrong.

I'm just trying to attack this at all sides before it comes down to JUST a 4.5 chip. This is a great board and I just want to give it the best parts. Also in your experience with these high clocks do you feel an 860W PSU ( corsair platinum ) is enough? I have the GPU's on a separate power source ( plat 1200AXi)

Yeah that PSU should be plenty. These Ivy-E CPUs don't pull much current.

Can you list minimum voltages required for stable 4.3 and 4.1? Also are you using LLC at regular or higher?

Try to set your RAM speed to 1600 MHz when you are trying CPU overclocking. But CPU overclocking is straghtforward with this board. You'd find your CPU limits in no time. (As long as you are using LLC at regular. Higher LLC tends to hide instability and it shows only in certain combinations of conditions. Though it's nothing that wouldn't solve adding +0.020-0.040, or so volts to VCC.)

Adjust power limits, maybe. The 0504 BIOS has some issues with power limits, even at stock. I trip PSU power detection all the time, OC, pull more power, it works fine tongue.gif


Or a couple of LN2 sessions hurt my board. My LAN also now doesn't work unless I reboot, or go into BIOS from cold boot, and restart, so the LAN problem is the board for sure...LAN won't start unless warm-booted, or I remove driver in OS and warm-boot that way.

Mine pulls 250W easy @ 4.5 GHz. All three. 4960X at stock, dual 780 Ti @ stock... 853 W by my wall-wart meter. That 250W figure, however, was measured at the 8-pin.



Raja, I am sure that Intel is having some silicon issues. Don't underestimate how bad some retail chips can be. tongue.gif

That said, LunaP is running dual mismatched PSUs, and I want to blame that.

It was set to 1333 stock. @ only 16gb mem.


LLC is set too very high @ 180% and VCCSA is high @ 130% as per cadaveca's direction. I've screenshots from a while back posted.

You have three **** CPUs then smile.gif Mine pull about 15 amps peak from 12V at 4.5GHz under full load - ties back perfectly to stated package power with 10% losses. 250W at that freq is going back to Bloomfield/Gulftown territory.

I know, but like LunaP, I can run 4.5 GHz @ 1.25V.


Just saying. I have ES chips, so yeah, poopy.
post #6249 of 14772
something about that figure sounds off to me. Can you double check?
post #6250 of 14772
Code:
75 A 3.2 GHz 163W prime
90 A 3.4 GHz 168 W prime
110 A 3.9 GHz 172-5 W prime might need test stability
I have this with my 4 core.
Basically prime and overclocking tends to stay under 200 W wall for the whole MB and CPU. (Phase at extreme adds another 10 W, but it should be unnecessary for 4 core at 3.9 or lower.)



LunaP I think you might try to overclock your CPU at regular LLC, just to get proper statistic data. Start at 3.9, then do 4.1, and 4.3. It should create some curve. For example my CPU should reach 4.5 GHz at 1.26428571429 V (LLC regular, <1.23 V LLC medium) If the curve would look like it should stay mostly linear at 4.6 GHz try higher strap like 1.25x 37. Also I found using 500 kHz voltage frequency worked better than the default 300 kHz.
