So it's showing a max mult of x26. I remember my 970 being locked at 23. Been a few years....

If indeed you can set the mult to x25 then the bclk would be set to 152 for 3.8.

Simple formula:

Target speed (in Mhz) / Multiplier = BCLK, so 3800/25 = 152

after she goes to sleep I'll give it go tonight and post my results.
thanks again for your help, I have no problem oc my gpu's but they are 100 times easier to oc than a cpu and memory.

X58 Xeon thread has some Sabertooth users: http://www.overclock.net/t/1489955/official-x58-xeon-club/0_30 and here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1461359/official-xeon-x5660-x58-review-discussion-and-xeon-l5639-benchmarks-inside/0_30

970 has a locked multiplier, so have to rely on bclk. Or a combo of reduced mult and blck. The nice thing is that the Sabertooth is happy to run at over 200 bclk. The ultimate OC will be limited by your cooler, not the motherboard.

Here's a review from '10 where they pushed a 970 on a Rampage to 4.8 (on air): http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cpu_mainboard/intel_i7_970_review/3 - The Sabertooth is as good as the Rampage, imo. Note: they settled on 4.3ghz for a 24/7 OC.

The max all core mult is 23X - turbo is 24X. So a quick jump to 3.8(ish) would require a bclk of 165.

Here's a Q&D example OC:

Ai Overclock Tuner [Manual]

CPU Ratio Setting [23]
Intel SpeedStep Tech [Enabled]
Intel TurboMode Tech [Disabled]
BCLK Frequency [165]
PCIE Frequency [100]
DRAM Frequency [1322] (for now)
UCLK Frequency [Auto]
QPI Link Data Rate [Auto]
ASUS/3rd Party UI Priority [ASUS Utility]

>DRAM Timing Control

***Please Key In Number Directly!***
CPU Voltage Control [MANUAL]
CPU Voltage [1.2825] - Have to find the stable voltage for your chip, then decide later to try offset method
CPU PLL Voltage [1.88]
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage [1.30]
IOH Voltage [AUTO]
IOH PCIE Voltage [AUTO]
ICH Voltage [AUTO]
ICH PCIE Voltage [AUTO]
DRAM Bus Voltage [auto]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHA [AUTO]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHA [AUTO]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHB [AUTO]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHB [AUTO]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHC [AUTO]

*************************************
Load-Line Calibration [Enabled]
CPU Differential Amplitude [AUTO]
CPU Clock Skew [AUTO]
CPU Spread Spectrum [Enabled]
IOH Clock Skew [AUTO]
PCIE Spread Spectrum [Enabled]


so I keyed in all these settings and the cpu was running fine at 3.959ghz for about 30mins of intel burn test with max temp of 68c.
now as soon as I opened my internet browser I got a BSOD.
I set everything back to default in the bios.

That's a little strange. A BSOD in the browser is usually video card related, but something didn't like the OC.

Don't give up yet. These values were just my best guesses, not the final guaranteed version. We have to find those for your system.

You could either drop the BCLK to 155 or up the CPU voltage to 1.30(ish).

Also for now set QPI/DRAM Core Voltage [Auto]

hey I was amazed how easy it was to hit almost 4.0ghz.
graphics card is new GTX 980 and a GTX 970 for folding.
I built this system in 2010 and this is my first BSOD, I have friends that get a BSOD at least 2 times a year. smile.gif
I always tease them over it

Congrats on your first BSOD! tongue.gif

It's like a badge of honor, but without all the backslapping and perks.

back when I had a Q9650 775 socket system I had a few BSOD's but that was with Vista, after Win 7 came out I wiped the drive
and installed Win 7 and no more BSOD's, my daughter uses that system now and it's still good to go. shows how poopy Vista was.
