Overclocking a Xeon x5670 on an Asus p6t? - Page 4

post #31 of 46
Thread Starter 
Ok, got it.

So I tried to test it myself, remover my mixed dram, set bclk to 170 and everything as before, except I manually set the multiplier to 24, and it bsod'd 5 minutes after booting, with only desktop and file explorer running, didn't even had time to test anything. Will try increasing voltages to test again.

Edit: IBT didn't do the trick but prime95 did. As soon as I started stress testing for Max heat, multiplier went down to x22. Only got it not to bsod at 1.3v, will try to set multiplier to auto again and raise bclk to 180 and see if I get it stable at 1.3v

Ok, so I raised the bclk to 187 and the voltage to 1.3v and it's stable apparently. Testing prime95 Max heat along with furmark for 20min or so and still running. Gpu temps stabilized at 82°c (wich I found a little high since it's not oc'ed) and cpu's hottest core looks stable at 77, though it peaked at 79. I think I'm ok with these temps, not going higher than 1.3v so I think this is my clock speed. What you think?

So should I try lowering my voltage to try and reduce the temps a little?
Also what's next? How about those settings set to minimum?

Try Asus Realbench. It's a great stress app. It's free too. I normally run IBT at custom 3072mb 10 times, all cores. And I run Realbench for 15min on stress test.

right, so I left IBT running for about an hour, and just tested realbench for 15min, it seems fine

So you are at 1.3v for your vcore, and your BLCK is 187 and the motherboard is only allowing 22 when stress testing, right? Have you done a little Prime95? I don't do it for very long just a litlte bit. It's games that usually will crash letting me know that overclock isn't stable.

But 4.1Ghz is a decent OC. If you want to work on the other areas next I can try n help, or are you looking for a higher Core overclock?

yeah it's not bad actually, I'm satisfied with this clock speed. I did 2 prime95 stress tests for like 20-30 minutes and nothing as well. gonna monitor while I play some games later tonight, and if it goes well, that's probably it.

I was just thinking that maybe I could try lowering the core voltage step by step, just to see if I can lower my temps, but I don't know if it's worth the trouble. I mean, 79°CPU/82°GPU with both running together at 100% is pretty acceptable (cpu test being the maximum heat test).

and yeah, I could use some help, I'm not sure how the other speeds that I change will affect performance, but everything is at the lowest value, so perhaps I could find some optimal values? again, I have no idea what it would affect.

so I'll play some games tonight and make sure my system is stable, and then I'm going to put the mixed sticks back and check all their timings. I mean, it's possible that my dram isn't what was causing the issues, it's more likely, cause it bsod'ed without that dram anyways. I know that it could cause other issues, but I really want to test it cause 6gb is still a considerable difference. you think I shouldn't use it even if it's stable?

I would push the core speed to find the limit at 1.3v. Your Intel safe vcore limit is 1.35v You might be able to get 4.2GHz out of 1.3v

yeah, that's tempting. Guess I'll try it if it proves itself stable now at 4.12ghz

but what after that?
post #39 of 46
Well the way I overclocked was I first looked at my QPI Frequency and everything in relation to the BLCK speed from there. For me there is a noticeable difference when the QPI frequency is pushing 3.7 - 4 GHz In my case my BLCK is 166. I used a 24x (6.4GT/s) for 4GHz on the QPI, and I used a 23x on the Uncore for 3.8GHz. The Classified is an over the top exceptional overclocking motherboard and has the abilities to reach those speeds because of a feature full bios. You can choose what you want to work on next. I would work on the QPI Speed. Since you have to ramp up your BCLK it puts you at a disadvantage with the core overclocking. You CAN pump some volts into the board and see if you can get 4.1GHz QPI Frequency to work but it'll be a challenge, from what I've been hearing. I'm pushing 1.325v on the QPI PLL, 1.25v on the IOH, and 1.2v on the ICH. The board has a QPI Signal Compensation option and it's best for me to set it to 'Less' So it's up to you, let me know and I'll try n help

Ok done testing at 191 bclk, I testes with 3 different softwares and nothing, but as soon as I launched Batman arkham Knight, it crashed and bsod. So guess I'm keeping 187. Probably should move on to the qpi speed, but I'm not sure where I want to get with this or what speed
