help with i7 980x 4.400 ghz overclock?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, I overclock my i7 980x to 4.4 ghz however, I find it a little laggy when navigating in windows. I can make it more stable by increasing cpu vtt to +200 however, in eleet it shows vtt at 1.48 volts and I read that maximum cpu vtt is 1.40. If put +100 vtt in bios I get 1.35 vtt in eleet which is safe but is not as responsive. My 12gb ram triple channel vdimm is 1.50 why cpu vtt max not the same as vdimm since they are both related?Are there people using cpu vtt at 1.40 or highter without any problems? Here are my bios settings please tell me what I need to improve or change.

I reset the bios and did the overclock again with better results I think that for the above I had hyper threading enable and did not realize it because a I got much better vcore and temps with 174 baseclock and 25 cpu multiplier. Here is the new settings.

1. Why don't you just run the multiplier at 44 instead of 176 x 25? I have a 980X and it runs at 4.6 at 1.35v

2. Why don't you run the ram at 1600 mhz with 1.65V?

3. Have you tried upping the PLL to 1.9V?

4. Have you tried manual voltages instead of offsets?

1.I don't have much experience overclocking. I did it with base clock instead of multiplier because I was fallowing an online guide that said that when you do it baseclock overclock it increase everything on the motherboard not just the cpu.

2.when I increase the baseclock to 174 it automatically increases the memory speed I think is 1743 mhz the memory kit says 1.50 volts I don't know if I change it will damage it.

3. what PLL do you mean?IOH PLL, QPI PLL,CPU PLL?

4. i am a noob I don't understand what you mean.

Your ram will handle 1.65 Volts easily, it won't damage it, going over 1.7V may damage/degrade it in the long run.

Overclocking the X58 platform can be very straightforward. Overclocking a Gulftown unlocked processor makes the process even easier. Most of the guides you will find on the web deal with a locked multiplier cpu, hence requiring a bclk overclock, you may be able to get away with a much simpler setup.

 

If it were me I would start over and be systematic. It will be most important to find your max CPU overclock. You should easily hit 4.2 and maybe more with a simple multiplier increase. Then you can increase your memory, but you may not be able to run it at 2000 with a high cpu overclock.

 

If you are close to stable I would change your multipler to 42 and base clock to 100. Also leave the Uncore to AUTO. Try that out and then see if you can get 43X, 44x, etc.  You do not HAVE to adjust your bclk, it may help in some extreme overclocking situations, but being a beginner I would take advantage of the fact that you have an unlocked multiplier.

 

Also, do not be afraid of leaving the intricate settings on AUTO, most motherboards are not half bad at setting up appropriate VRm frequencies and such.

Thanks for all the replies I will try to do it with the multiplier and change the memory volt to 1.65 I will work on it tomorrow when I have time.

I overclock the cpu with the multiplier and change the ram voltage to 1.65 and was able to get 1857mhz ram speed.
the minimum baseclock for evga e760 was 133 could not get it to 100. I did 133x33 and got 4.400 ghz with 1.37500 vcore. I find it easier this way than overclocking with baseclock and more stable. I did 15 minutes of linx without errors. I need to do 12 hours of prime95 to be sure. I could not overclock it higher because it needs more than 1.40 volts like 1.43 or more for 4.5 ghz. I read that for i7 980x max volt is 1.40 after that it might get damage.

Is this the right procedure when overclocking?. Every time I increase the multiplier I check with linx 20 passes and if it fails I increase the voltage. Then I do 15 minutes stress testing with linx and if it passes I stay at that voltage and finally do 12 hours of prime.

1.375 voltage and 1.38 vcore. You know that sounds confusing right?

Sorry I meant 1.375 vcore.
