Well ... Spent a few hours tweaking a little over the weekend.

Now have the X5680 stable @ 4.413 running 1.34V

Can get it to boot comfitably into windows and happy @4.5 @4.55 but crashing during testing.

Temps are fine, I do not see it getting over 70 with full load and the temps are level across the board.

I think it is a ram issue that is crashing the system.

As mentioned before running a Evga X58 SLI Classified ... And running 12GB Corsair Dominator-GT 2000MHz DDR3.

This is 6 x 2G ... Ram is 2 sets of triple.

Rig detects 10GB in bios (12GB in CPUz) and for the mountains of reading over the weekend it seems EVGA boards have a issue all 6 slots.

I have tested all in slot 1, and all in 6G mode, but as soon as I get all installed one of the slots stops detecting.

So I will try a few more tests tonight as read a few voltage suggestions on the VTT which I am according to all I have read am not pushing the volts enough (suggestions range from +150 - +300) currently I am at +100 and looking at my old I7 I ran it at +250 then so that maybe the issue.

Ether way I am still happy as with the current settings ether way as I am solid @4413 and get 965 on benching compared to 563 on my old chip.

I am considering new ram but it is hard to get Triple kits now, I have read Dual ram will be 30%slower than triples so wondering whether if I get 3x 8G DDR3 1866Mhz (GSkill or Kingston) whether that would work better than Dual or the 6 slots I currently run.

Ram at the moment are sitting at 1750Mhz so it would be inside the spec of the ram :-)

I know I could sell money still as they are awesome and I have all the packaging and fan etc.

So yeah think I need to fix my ram issue to stabilise @4.5.

Would love to get 1000 bench so advice welcomed :-)

Thanks for all the help, loving the upgrade!!!!

I went from 6 2 gig sticks to 3 8 gig sticks as well. As long as the production date, or string are close together, you will be fine. You could also get a quad channel kit. 32 gigs ddr3 quad channel not too badly priced


I always promote the kit i have from my experience on this platform.

Will do 2200mhz @ 9-9-9-24 1t 1.58V's

have a chance to get a free msi X power z97 AC. then it would be purchase a 4770k or the 4790k. That would be all that i would need.

Is this a worthy upgrade?

@leadsinga What ram kit is it? Is it an Elpida Hyper kit? My kit has survived. It's an old MGH-E IC kit. If it is do not give up on them. They are way better than anything made today. I have two 8GB Ballistix Tactical LP sticks and the tRFC timings are insanely loose. It's VERY noticeable with the UT series, in comparison. They are DEFINITELY not gaming memory sticks.

Also if you HT is on, you might want to turn that off and see if it's stable at 4.55GHz

Yes mate I think they are ... 99% sure anyway ... I have 2 kits ... so 6 x 2G sticks with the dual fan coolers.

They work fine as triples but soon as I full all 6 slots then they don't detect all 12GB and I believe the load is killing my final overclock.

Def have HT at the moment ... running without droop etc ... just looked at my old bios setup for the i7 and I was running +200mv CPU VTT ... I'm only on 100mv at the moment so will give that a tweak :-)

Will check the spec's tonight on the ram modules ... Think I may see if I can get it stable at 4500 with 6 gigs and then decide what to do afterwards ... I just think running less slots will drop overall loads on the whole system thus why I am thinking about it all.

Very nice kits if they are! +200mV will pusht the CPU VTT over the recommended voltage, do NOT do that. Also get a multi meter to check the voltages on the terminals. As others have said the CPU VTT defaults to 1.20v with the latest EVGA Classified 760 bios, 1.35v is the max. From what I've heard going out of safe specs with this setting is a CPU killer. I would go as high as 1.325v with the CPU VTT (+125mV)

Well had think I have found my ram issue.

I cleaned all the slots and then retested one ram at a time in slot one.

What do you know I have 1 dead stick!!!

So my 2x triple sets of Corsair CMG6GX3MA2000C8 1 of the ones in triple set 10120714 is dead :-)

So lets see what the warrantee is like.

Just running on triple with the good set and already my PC is a heap faster so I have the sneaky feeling that its what has caused a lot of my issues.

Funny they all tested fine over the weekend ... but now I have proof.

Will try some more overclocking tomorrow night as I have already dropped the vcore to 1.329 and its stable :-)
