A Q6700 Quickie Question

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have tried everything with this proc and cant get it to even post at 3.6GHZ

I TRIED 1.5 Vcore with 1.5 FSB volts and upped the NB SB to max voltage
lowered my ram clock and i cant get this proc pass 1400 FSB even at 2.1 GHZ any ideas ill settle for a low clock 3.0-3.2 if i can get a high FSB but as soon as go to 1430 it wont post at any vcore or with the FSB volts at 1.5 i know i can get more FSB out of it do i have to disable c1e or speed sted to get it to post or is that just for benching im giving out mad reps for this cause i tried everything and cant get FSB on cpu passed 1430 even at 2.1 GHZ

PS it post stable at 3.5GHZ with 1400 FSB and 10x multi

On my system my vcore is at 1.45 in the BIOS (1.39 in windows), sb nb and ht are at around 1.5 - 1.6volts.
Have you tried lowering the Multi to like 8 and setting the QDR to like 1800?
Maybe you've found the FSB hole?

Good luck

p.s. Is your ram unlinked..?

Try linking the memory and changing the ratio?
"After some struggling, this is all I've gotten to remain stable...
Q6600 cpu: fsb @1400 - 3.15 Ghz... . I have the memory running in 1:1 sync @ 1400 (although it's rated @ 1600 - 1.9v - 7-7-7-20). But regardless, even if I unlink the mem, the machine won't even post with anything above 1400fsb. here are my other settings:

PCIe - 101
PCIe - 101
SPP - 201

Voltages:
CPU Core - 1.4V
CPU FSb - 1.35V
Memory - 1.9V
nForce SPP - 1.35V
nForce MCP - 1.55V "

This was taken from another post i've just found - he had the same problem until he linked the memory?

Edit:
Infact I think i've misread that....
But anyway - try linking with a different ratio as to not overclock the ram too much

Aren't the 790i boards having trouble getting decent OC's on the Quads?

Found This Thread you may need to actually roll back bios to the P01 as the P04 is loaded with OC problems..

try looking around on diff forums about "XFX 790 Ultra Bios"
