Forced to Clock (Help with clock speeds on the FX 9590, and the rest of my build.)

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have always been a plug N' play pc builder for several years. I have upgraded and rebuilt my rig quite a few times now. I had always thought about learning the ways of the clock but never had any problems with any of my builds to actually take the time to learn. Well I regret that decision now... a lot!

I have monsters to kill... thats why I upgraded again for the witcher 3. I need to get my system running as good as possible before this coming Monday night. I have come here to ask the help of experienced clockers to get my system stable and running well.

The Story: I upgrade three components to my PC about three weeks ago the gpu, cpu, and psu. Well I really didnt have a lot of time to test it before I went back to work; but on my next days off when I tried Evolve, Metro last light, and the witcher 2 I noticed it was freezing my system completely, I had to reset it couldn't do anything. Not always immediately sometimes two hours into a game session. It became increasingly worse so I turned to Toms Hardware for help. I got a few answers and did some work of my own, coming to the conclusion it was the 9590 fx, ram clock speeds, and having my cpu cores parked. I got some really good help over there but it has kind of dried up and I'm still not real happy. Now knowing that the problem lies within the clocks I still would like guidance in getting this running as well as it possibly can. I figured this would be the right place to ask!


It should be in my signature but just in case and since it is my first post here are my sys specs:

CPU AMD FX-9590 4.7GHz 8-Core Processor
Motherboard Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
Storage Patriot Torqx 2 32GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Samsung Spinpoint F4 2TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB Video Card
Case Inwin Dragon Rider ATX Full Tower Case
Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1200W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive HP DVD1265I DVD/CD Writer
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
Sound Card Maudio delta 1010

Here is the THW link for what was already done: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2633911/upgrade-freezes-gaming.html#15871275

I have almost no experience in knowing how to set my speeds I can navigate around my bios well enough but lack the knowledge in getting this fixed without guidance. If anyone wants to jump in and lend a hand I will gladly get you whatever information about my system you need just let me know. I will post pics of my entire bios if need be! It is a lot more stable than it was but I still can detect lags that should not be present and were not present before the upgrade.

I did do some more home work today and was wondering about the hyper transport link speed? should I set mine to 2600 MHz., it is currently at 2200.

I got to where they're wanting you to manually set RAM timings and closed it; running 32GB of RAM is going to be a huge stress on the IMC and could be a cause of instability in itself. I'd recommend moving down to at most 16GB for stability testing.

What are your BIOS settings now? Voltages? Can you download hwinfo64 and IBT AVX and post your results after running IBT?

Alright I did everything but remove the ram- here is the info:

I'd like to see your temperatures listed in hwinfo64 after you run IBT. Also, run IBT on the 'Very High' setting.

I can foresee a few changes in BIOS to be made, namely raising your core voltage and setting Load Line Calibration to high or ultra high, but establishing a baseline of your temps is a good place to start.

Reduce the CPU/NB voltage immediately by 0.15V at least or you will kill the NB or the L3 caches.
There is absolutely no reason to run the NB higher than 1.275V, ever.

Ok here is what I got immediately after the test:

Ok I set the cpu/nb to 1.262500

That looks like a pretty clean run with solid temperatures too. You have some headroom to move up a bit too I think.

You upgraded to the Titan from what? Did you uninstall/reinstall the GPU drivers?

I went from a gtx 980 to the titan, and when I had problems I used that guru 3d to wipe all the drivers then re-installed it.

I suppose we should try some GPU tests as well. Download Unigine Heaven and run it on extreme, monitor temperatures and report back.
