Hey guys,

I am an avid overclocker and picked up the following parts (check sig) 2 years ago for my current computer. Up until now I have had no need in overclocking the I7-930 since everything was fast..... Then Skyrim came a long... It's slow and bogs down and I want it to run faster. Originally I thought that it had more to do with the HD since of the load times when entering a new environment (think open skies), so I fixed the HD, then it still occurred ---> I O/C the GPU.... Now it's CPU time.

My case is a beast, the CPU has a Thermaltake Ultra 120 extreme on it with the fan blowing out to the two inside case fans. My friend told me I should place it on the other side so it sucks in from the ram through the Heatsink into the two outtake fans but I am not sure.

My goal is O.C. the I7-930 to 4+GHZ. the chip is a I7-930 45nm Stepping 5, REv D0 on a Gigabyte X58-UD5 Rev 2 Motherboard. Following the guide I was able to get it to 4.1GHZ with a non load temp of 38C and Full load temp of 75-80C. However, after 8hrs and 35 min the system stalled. I then bumped the QPI/VTT Volt to 1.335V and the VCore to 1.3125V. Running Prime95 in 8 windows, with Linkz activated I am getting a 100% load temp of 84-89C (Max hit was 91C via Real Temp), and it has been running 6 hours 30 min without a problem.

I am going to list my settings below, but I want to lower the temps and tweak performance so:
A. Use less Power
B. Stable O/C and see if I can beat 4.1ghz
C. What I am I missing in my tweaking
D. I am testing with EasyTune5 as well in windows
E. When done, figure a way to throttle between 4GHZ and for it to drop when not running anything that intensive (I only want it for games)

Any help is greatly appreciated! The settings are:

Thanks!

My ram is gskill.us G.Skill F3-12800CL9-2GBNQ, do I have the settings correct to run this at 1600? I just want to be sure before I change the SPD to 8 and Uncore to 16/17.

The pic of my CPU-Z and other settings at idle is here:

333
I tried upping the BLCK to 195 and was fine until 8 hrs 45 min into Prime95. What can I do to get a higher O/C or make this more stable at 4ghz? I moved the settings down now so that I am running at 3990.13MHz.

Any ideas for settings I could change would be greatly appreciated.

Your multi is at 21 with your turbo off, should i let turbo on since all the power saving are disabled it will stay at 21 and use less baseclock. Also are those stock or modified

>>>>> Advanced Clock Control

So to resume.

Edited by kev8792 - 8/1/13 at 7:35am

KEV8792 gave me great advice this was his explanation:
he main reason for disabling the CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) and CPU EIST Function is because they are know to crash the system while stressing the cpu in prime 95 and in Intel burn test they control the drop in cpu, they are mainly for power saving and you don't want it to go to power saving while testing for a stable o/c, after you have a good solid stable o/c you can Enable these again,

cant recall but think your using the Intel i7 930 and @ 4.0 you might be able to bring your v-core down a little, the LoadLine Calibration will help a lot on level 2 not auto ok

post back with some results, temps ect

Thanks for the help, i used the previous settings that i quoted in my other post and i ran prime95 for 5mins to watch the temps 69c cpu 55c mobo

192x21
turbo enabled
c1e, c3/c6/c7 disabled
cpu heist disabled
qpi x36
uncore x16 3072mhz
ram multi x8 1536mhz
load line disabled
memory performance standard
cpu vcore 1.312v
qpi/vtt1.335v
cpu ppl 1.8v
qpi ppl 1.2v
ich core 1.2v
ioh core 1.2v
ram 1.64v

Stable enough for what i do (pcsx2) but i'll need to test it for a longer period of time.

Modding the bios for 4ghz seems a bit extreme to me, plus i've done the testing i wanted to do at 4ghz.(i said i wanted 4ghz 24/7 but i changed my mind)

Now i just want to have a small oc to 3.4 - 3.6, touching only vcore and the ram voltage if it's possible.

In reality your not modding the bios. Your updating the drivers, which make it more stable.

I think 4.0 should be no problem with proper cooling. Mine has been running 24x7 like that since I got the x58

I did my first overclock just now and i would like some feedback on what i can adjust.

I sat the following settings when overclocking:

ioh and ich to 1.2
vdimm to 1.65
cpu pll to 1.88
qpi/uncore to 1.35
Bclk to 190
multiplier to 21

Here is the result of the cpu-z prime95 test:


Then i ran prime95 for 10.5 hours with no errors

HI! First welcome the forums (^_-) it's a great community here, before I make any suggestions would be helpful to know your configuration. Go to your profile and click rig. :-) Let us know what your using so we can help also read what I wrote above.

Based on your photos. Was that stable at 24hrs I feel you could get a little more out of that baby. My chip went to 4.4ghz. A few posts above this I have my settings at this point you can try clocking higher or lower your volts so your trip is lower

what a wonderful welcoming smile.gif

I have now updated my rig in my signature.
----
Which exact values should i can change? im guessing the bclk. but shall the other stay as they are?
sorry for these questions that must be fairly easy too experienced overclockers, but since i have no background with this i just feel i need to know, so i dont break something.

The first thing I would do is read
http://www.overclock.net/t/538439/guide-to-overclocking-the-core-i7-920-or-930-to-4-0ghz/0_70

Then after figuring your max and min use some of my settings to tweak. We can only help if you do some of the research so you understand what it is you are changing.

I recognize that its this post but read through page one.

The trick is to get a stable overclock like you have. Then from that stable overclock you raise your BLCK and your voltage(when you need to). Really check what I posted above with my settings. Raise your BLCK and you will be fine as long as you monitor your temps.
