Foxconn Bloodrage Overclocking/Help Thread - Page 40

post #391 of 711
I currently have my BCLK set at 190 with 20x multiplier. EIST and Turbo are enabled. My VTT and Vcore are at default. The bios shows vcore at 1.275, cpu-z shows 1.280 and sometimes lower. I tried this configuration earlier, but IntelBurnTest got an error after three minutes. I am running it again with Vdroop enabled and have been error free with 2 loops so far.

When I get mine all up and running, I'll add to this thread with things I find.

eh, you should really tune your vcore and vtt.

Whenever I overclock, I try to put enough voltage where I know it'll be stable and then test for lowest voltage afterward.

First work with a lower cpu multi with a high bclk and get it stable with vtt.

Then you up your cpu multi and get it stable with vcore. I never touch the vdroop setting on my bloodrage.

Do you mean using EIST and lowering the BCLK to achieve 4.0GHz? I can't raise the multiplier above 20x. I have my ram set manually according to spec. My ram is rated to run at 7-7-7-20 at 1.65v, but would crash prime95 at those settings so I bumped the voltage up to 1.66 and changed the timing to 7-7-7-16. My divider was set to run the memory at 1600mhz and with these changes I was able to run prime95 and memtest for hours without any issues.
With Turbo Always On, your multi will go to 21x no matter what your multi is set at. If you have it set at 15x, it will go to 21x when turbo kicks in.

Ok. I didn't even notice the Always On option. Thanks.

I am trying to stabilize my BCLK like milkcow recommended. I have read a lot about i7 overclocking and various tips, but I just wanna make sure I am doing this right. Should I just set my ram settings manually to match spec then lower my cpu multiplier with a high BCLK and memory divider to run my ram at 1600mhz than adjust VTT and IOH until I get a stable benchmark?

No problem!

You should actually set your RAM loose compared to recommended settings. Always OC the CPU first and lowering the RAM makes sure its the CPU causing problems and not the RAM. Then, with your RAM under OC'd, slowly raise your BClock using VTT and IOH to get stable. Once you found the max you would like, start raising your CPU Multi and adding VCore to to get it stable. Once you are satisfied with your CPU OC, then start with your RAM. Remember to have your DRAM Voltage at 1.65 and use more VTT to stabilize RAM. Also, make sure your Uncore Multi is double your Memory Multi (so 8x Mem Multi would be a 16x Uncore Multi).

follow that advice, I decided to leave my ram on Auto and not mess with it, it runs 1540mhz and 8-7-7-24 timings, stock timings are 8-8-824 so its running tighter than stock im just gonna leave them, my PC is fast as it is, dont think id notice much difference at all from ram overclocking, then you gotta worry about stabilizing ram

edit: ALSO anyone who has the SONAX-Fi installed with the creative console launcher installed, could you please open the Creative Console Launcher and see if it says Entertainment mode at the top or Game mode? Mine is on Entertainment, and I can't figure out how to change it to Game mode, i think that may be why I am not getting the desired sound thru games.

second edit: I found the ModChanger app in the SB X-FI MB folder in Program Files, however, when I launch it it says no Supported Device found

After a day of rigorous testing I have come to the conclusion that regardless of anything I do my memory cannot run at the suggested settings without pushing the dram voltage above 1.65. I was wondering what everyones opinion is on the whole dram voltage above 1.65 as long as the uncore VTT voltage stays within .5?

VDRAM voltage can go above as long as it remains within .5. There is a limit of course and make sure you read your manufactures warranty. I had my DRAM at 1.9V for OC'ing and Benchmarking before.

I kinda went thru the same, i decide to leave mine at 1530mhz and 8-7-7-23 timings, been running perfectly, all games run smooth
