i7 920 Help A Chump Overclock His CPU (Chapter I) - Page 5

post #41 of 64
I would suggest setting just the cpu voltage to 1.4v. run Windows Experience Index, see if it passes that, and pay attention to your temps. I'm not sure how well the H60 will handle 1.4v on a 45nm die.

Nah don't randomly set 1.4vcore - i'd experiment with like 1.33 though to see if it passes stuff

Current VCore is 1.3.1V


Max Core Temp: 72 C


However, in Prime95, one of the cores is still giving me the finger.

What the hell is wrong with that little brat?

Must I absolutely feed that sucker with more Volts to get it to do it's job like Bit_reaper's suggestion?


The cores never give equal temps so dont worry thumb.gif

Core Temp is 64 C (max) with LinX running 20,000 problem sized test. I set it to 3 runs. Oddly, when I stopped the testing after 10m 30s with not a single result, I checked the log. Nothing! It just somehow produced heat and put strain on the CPUs without a single calculation/result showing up...

Edit: It turns out I forgot Prime95 running and in the meanwhile, started LinX too... I've been up for more than 24h now, sorry for this clumsiness tongue.gif

Edit: Yes by the way, it made it through Windows Experience Index cheers.gif

I set the VCore to 1.33V . Didn't touch anything else. CPU#4 still instantly fails Prime95 tests (both heavy & light)

Any thoughts on what's going on here?

set 1.4v and watch your temps. if it passes, lower vcore, if it passes, lower it again, if it passes, lower it again, and so on

If I don't touch anything on a Default BIOS apart from setting VCore to 1.4V, oddly enough, I get a "No Signal. Will Shutdown" message generated by the monitor (as if it was telling me to up VCore).


I tried booting with my pre-CMOS event o/c settings. It booted into Windows, I managed to open the 'Programs' folder and click on the CPU-Z shortcut. Then, I got a BSOD telling me to up VCore whereas it was already pretty high at 1.356V (please note: I reached 4GHz with 1.31V before, 1.356 was to further stabilise Prime95 memory issues - it didn't work though...)

Why is your QPI VTT so high, too much can actually cause instability too!
It should be 1.20-1.24v for 1333Mhz, 1.26-1.32v for 1600Mhz, and up from there with Ram speed.

You seem to have messed with too many settings for a simple OC.

The chip should do 3.8Ghz at 1.30v easily being a D0. Use Realtemp for cpu temps, speedfan is junk.

You dont need to be messing with skews, that will result in some super odd behavior if you dont have a scope to really test.

IOH and ICH is the southbridge, you have no reason to be over volting these, it can help if you run multi GPUs with OCs.

If i was you, id go back to default, set 21x Multi, 180Mhz bclk. Vcore to 1.32v, LLC to Enabled/Medium-High.
Set the Ram to its XMP profile, or set the primary timings only, and set the Ram voltage as specified for your kit.
Set the QPI Ratio to the lowest (but not slow mode).

My chip needed 1.312v for 4Ghz, and 1.40v for 4.2Ghz, so you just have an average chip. And i had HT enabled.

Also is the bios updated?

I agree with the above poster, 1.34V VTT shouldn't be needed yet, that is more for 4ghz + uncore speeds.

The ICH shouldn't need any voltage bump, IOH usually only needs a small bump, 1.14V should be fine for 4ghz + cpu & uncore frequency.

Seeing this thread yesterday I pulled out the i7 920 for some benching, been a while since I used it

Seeing this thread yesterday I pulled out the i7 920 for some benching, been a while since I used it

Makes me appreciate how easy it is overclocking these days. The old ways were a pain in the behind
