X5660?

Lets do a dirty test

Follow my settings exactly if your UD7 allows, report any blocked settings or missing settings

BLCK 181
Multi 21
UNCORE X16 (should say 2896)
MEM Multiplier X8 (should say 1448)
Use QPI Link X36
Disable Turbo
Enable Speedstep
Disable all C-states

Voltages

CPU Vcore 1.35(Do NOT Exceed yet)
CPU PLL 1.8
QPI VTT 1.30(DO NOT EXCEED)
IOH Core 1.2
ICH Core 1.3(1.4 is also fine but likely has no effect)
DRAM 1.65 or 1.66v
Enable Level 1 Load Line Calibration

i attempted to remember the settings names exactly

I will try them settings as soon as my memory test finishes. I am running a memtest86+ on memory at the minute. I also ran a intel processor diagnostics tool and it passed. Just trying to rule out possibilities.

Just going to call out your other post, overclocking an X5600 is NOTHING like the i7 900. They are entirely different and like to be treated as such. and boy oh boy do they show it.

I stopped the memory test to try your settings and again I'm stuck not booting. Black screen on monitor and all fans and lights working on pc. Will not boot to post. So cannot get into bios to change settings.

If you have a Reset CMOS jumper, use it, otherwise, pull the CMOS battery, unplug the computer, press power, then put the battery back and plug it in, should be reset.

There is a button. So nice and handy.

I tried these below.

BLCK 160
Multi 21
UNCORE X16
MEM Multiplier X8
Use QPI Link X36
Disable Turbo
Enable Speedstep
Disable all C-states

Voltages

CPU Vcore 1.2
CPU PLL 1.8
QPI VTT 1.195
DRAM 1.5
Enable Level 1 Load Line Calibration
Everything else set to auto.

And it would not boot again.

I did and same black screen. Reset cmos and tried the settings I wrote as I had it booting at a lower overclock before. I thought they were the settings but now that I think of it I think the settings were lower. Also when I did have it overclocked a bit it was not stable, crashed playing Battlefield 4.

I just reset cmos and everything to stock and just decided to try xmp-profile1. Same black screen and will not boot. I think it is RAM at fault. As I said when I first installed CPU I could not get all 12GB of RAM to be recognized.

Try just 3 Sticks then, instead of all 6, X58 is problematic with 6

What is the max frequency RAM the xeon X5660 can handle. I have 1600MHz at the minute but looking to get 3 x 4GB 2000MHz. Can that processor handle 2000MHz?
