EVGA 780i Overclocking Guide - Page 142

post #1411 of 1607
Thanks. I'll give it a try tonight.
post #1412 of 1607
I have gotten this chip up to 3.0 ghz to post. when I try to start Vista, it blue screens. Bumping the voltage on the CPU doesn't help. Bumped the FSB Voltage up one and SPP up one to 1.3 and tried 1.35 and 1.4.

I'm doing this from work, so don't have exact numbers.

What's the next things I have to adjust?

Your RAM is fixed/unlinked and you have volts for the CPU on auto yes?

Ram is unlinked and set to 1066. CPU is not on auto. I had it some where around 1.38 and went all the way up to 1.5. Still posted, but blue screened when Vista tried to start. Auto on CPU is set to 1.25 which won't let it post.

Do I need to drop ram back to 800? Linked and synced?
post #1416 of 1607
I wouldn't have thought so if it say 1066 on the can

RAM volts is correct i.e. most likely 2.1V or 2.2V


Linked and synched isn't worth worrying about. RAM fixed and all setting and volts as per manufacturers specs is the best way. 5-5-5-18 and 2.1V yes?

If that is all correct, then you are just getting your CPU to play ball (faster).

Yep, it sure will. Nice deal too!
post #1420 of 1607
Just installed my new 780i over the weekend. Installed chipset and display drivers from nvidia, unlinked the FSB clock, slapped it up to 1333 on the CPU and 1066 on my G-Skill RAM, and away she went. Didn't have to adjust anything like voltages and she's stable like a diamond.

I had a 580 Watt PSU which exploded shortly thereafter though. When I turned the new graphics options on in WOW it lasted about 5 minutes. Replaced the PSU with an 850 Watt Antec and no hicups so far. CPU is reading at 52C max under load.

I'd feel comfortable pushing it up to 3.6 but I don't see a need for that right now.
