5930k memory overclock and what tempterature reading?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been trying to overclock my 5930k and have been struggling for months. What I've noticed is that my DDR 3000 memory just cannot maintain stability at anything over 2400mhz. My CPU is very stable at 4.5ghz at 1.34v and memory at 2400mhz, I can run real bench for 4 hours. If I try to set my memory to the XMP profile which is at 3000mhz the system becomes very unstable. Has anyone else noticed that Haswell-E platform does not seem to like memory faster than 2400mhz?

I can't maintain stability running anything faster than 2400mhz, as soon as I do I run into stability problems. I've tried 2667mhz etc etc.

Also, what should I look at for tempatures? do I look at Core Max from the from the 5930k DTS? or do I look at the "CPU 'C" from the bottom sensor in this picture?




I notice there is usually a 5-7'c difference between them, with the bottom one being higher most often Which one should I be using?

Thanks,

With the CPU temps, i think the lower one is the package temp, and the other one is individual core sensors. I think you could mainly just watch the package temp and keep an eye on temp of the hottest core.

I've heard some people saying that they had issues with the XMP profile and the secondary and tertiary timings the profile will set are no good. So instead they manually set the DRAM voltage and Primary Timings, and leave the secondary and tertiary timings to one of the modes that the motherboard offers.

On my Asus Rampage IV BE, there are 3 memory profiles for secondary and tertiary timings. Performance, Compatibility and Ivy-Bridge Extreme. I think I use compatibility setting most of the time, and manually set the XMP for 2400mhz (Frequency rating of my kit) and have no troubles with stability... however I get better performance by dropping to 2133mhz and tightening the timings.
