Plus it is a lot more fun to put together :-)

Do you remember if you could get them to OC? Another user above said they won't :/

Dotachin, just above you, the first reply to my question. I really don't want to spend the $175+ that a Sabertooth or P6T is going for if I can avoid it.

He didn't say your board can't OC, he said there are cheap compatible boards that won't OC.

Ah. My bad, I misread that. Do you know if the DX58SO will?
post #3517 of 12446
Chances are it will, but you may have a locked UNCORE at 2x, i can't tell, but the board appears to support it. otherwise it may need a microcode mod

Anyway, I want to overclock to about 3,3 GHz with 3,6 GHz turbo (or more ..... but I'm looking at 24/7 operation.....). For this I need to bump the BCLK to 166. This setting will give me (a divider of 5) 1328 MHz for the memory (which is close to 1333 MHz), Uncore frequency of about 2400 MHz and the QPI frequency of ~5900 MHz.

As voltages go, I dialed in as follows: 1,3V on CPU, 1,25V on QPI. no change to PLL (1,8V) and no change to memory (1.5V).

With this setting I still can't get into windows :-s....... I get POST every time but can't get it to be stable. I think the CPU voltage is at this point really high for this speed I am not willing to go any higher, for this speed. The QPI voltage also is massive for this CPU/Memory frequency/voltage, so I just stopped at this point.

Can someone help me? Am I doing something wrong on my rig? I because all memory modules are populated and should I remove the 3x1GB modules for higher overclock ?

PS2: In my rig I have two way SLI: 2x680 GPUs: MSI Lightning and Gigabyte OC edition of the 680 2GB versions. My PSU is a Fortron Aurum 700W edition, which is review (not by me biggrin.gif) and puts out all of it's 700W.....

Based on what you wrote there, I can tell you what I experienced working through my overclock.
1.3 CPU VCore should be in pretty good shape there. And, of course, the normal warning of not going higher than 1.35 (you shouldn't need to unless you got unlucky with the chip).

I would say that I needed 1.3V on my Vtt/QPI voltage to really get anywhere good. I wouldn't be too scared to slowly increment up to 1.3 and see how that helps you - it is, afterall, what is allowing your x5650 and x58 NB to "talk" - Intel gives it the same voltage limit as your CPU 1.4V, so I'll give you the same warning as the CPU - don't go over 1.35V

Now, for the SLI and your IOH voltages - MOST of the time people seem to be able to keep the two IOH associated voltages (I am not sure what they are called in your BIOS) at stock - 1.1 and 1.16V I believe. Since this powers the connection back and forth between your x58 and your SLI it can start to trip you up too. If it is a single card, rarely people have issues with the IOH it seems, but adding SLI puts a bigger burden on the connection. At my higher overclocks I did have to increase these voltages very slightly to 1.2V to prevent the x58 from dropping. So, keep it in mind, just in case.

For a final word I will just say - only do what you are comfortable doing. An extra hundred MHz or two isn't worth losing the hardware. There are great guides with much better explanations and insights than I have given you here.

Thanks. I'm assuming I can find information about what those two things mean elsewhere in this thread? I don't know much about OCing past multiplier and baseclock.

Oh yeah! I got my x5650 up to 4600 MHz! But I am just too uncomfortable leaving the voltages up there, so its more just for show lol - CPU-Z -> http://valid.x86.fr/1rzmqb
