Hi, I wonder if someone want to help me with this. First time clocker, and clocked a little easy on this computer, first time. Managed to get from 2900MHz to 3800MHz the easy way. I want to max this out, break a record or something without breaking my computer, and maybe learn something or two.
I wish to reach more than 4000MHz, maybe 4400MHz, or as high as I can get it. Cooling is not the problem here.
My cooler is great Noctua NH-D15S dual fans. I have also two other Noctua fans in the case, one 120 cm in rear, and one 140cm at bottom. I get at stable 50 Celsius in OCCT and Prime95 when in 2900MHz. When in 3800MHz I get 60 Celsius, stable. The Intels stock fan on top as comparison and fun. So this Noctua is a cooler beast, I'm very satisfied with it. When starting up, I get low 350 rpm on the fan, so it is also very quiet. With the stock fan I reached 98 Celsius in OCCT when even that I was not clocked. So I had to purchas a new fan, King Noctua it was.
Specs on computer: ASUS P7P55D-E PRO, socket 1156, Intel Core i7-870 2,93GHz, and MSI Nvidia GTX 970 Gaming 4G. And 16GB Ram.
This is my two picture under is from my original bios settings:
Under I is my clocked version of bios:
What I think is so difficult is this special ram I have: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 16GB CL9, Kit w/4x 4GB XMS3 modules, CL9-9-9-24, 1.5V, Low Vengeance Heatspreader.
They come in 4 modules, 4GB each, link under.
As you see they change the IMC volt to yellow And Dram volt in a way I don't understand, they are in the clocked version of the picture set to xmp, but I managed to clock the CPU to 3840MHz. But I have had a two of NML_Hardware_Failure two time split between on several days. Maybe it was a error with Nvidia driver it self, so I reinstalled it. I had some blue screens when trying, so something can have happened then. Never touched the volt in this tries.
So are there some friendly soul here that would help me reach my goal?
