The ASUS/ASrock P55 and X58 Club & Discussion(Under construction) - Page 20

post #191 of 329
I turned HT off and now I am stable at 3.84 with BCLK 183 x21 CPU Voltage 1.13125 set in the bios. If I up the CPU Voltage to 1.2, I can get 4.1 but I get Prime95 errors that seem to point to memory and I haven't taken the time to play with those voltages to try to get it stable.

I'm pretty happy with 3.84 and since turning off HT is lowering my load temp by a little over 10c I think I'm going to leave it off.

ASRock has added new BIOS version 1.70 for some of their x58 mobos.

Asus has new bios and drivers out too. released a couple days ago
post #193 of 329
I'm definitely joining this, and to show that I'm an Asus / i5 Enthusiast, I'm going to share my Overclocks with the club... (Has taken me TOO long to achieve these results) Hopefully someone can use these as a "Guidline" to help them OC their board / RAM, just remember to always stay at your Timings & Voltage for your RAM's Manufacturer's Specifications and you should be able to get to the OC you want by Upping voltage from what I have here, though please note, you should try upping the IMC voltage FIRST, as this is often the cause of instability with OCing than CPU voltage is...

BTW: With this board you DEFINITELY want to update the bios, it will bring temps down!

My System:

Intel i5 750 ~ OC to 3.612 GHz (Presently, have gotten higher!)
Asus P7P55D Pro 1156 Mother Board
4 GB of OCZ 3G 1600 LV4GK (Standard Timings = 8/8/8 - 24 - with CR 2N @ 1600 w/ 1.65v)

(The rest you can see below)

The OC Results: (So far, still working on more!)

And a new board came out, ASrock X58 Deluxe3, nothing special though, just a X58 Deluxe that comes bundled w/ a USB 3.0/SATA 6GB/s card.

yeah, I did via the windows install. it basically rendered all the previous settings i saved useless . so i just made them again. If you have the latest bios 1.7, you can try out my 3.36 ghz 1.1v stable bios settings. I'm trying to get to 4ghz w/ as low voltage settings as possible.

Hi,
I am trying to build a system with the following setup:

AsRock P55 Extreme
Core i7 860
4 x 2 GB (I plan to run multiple VMs, so I can make use of that much memory.)
WD Caviar Black 1 TB
Sapphire HD 4770
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit

I have run into the following problems without any OC:

Activating AHCI caused the BIOS to hang on detecting the HD.
So I updated the BIOS from 1.6 to 1.9. Now I could start test Windows 7 installation. However, the installation failed with an strang error. So I went back to IDE compatibility mode and installation was succesful. But now I have random BSOD.

I am currently running memtest86+ and it has reported errors with lowest address 4994 MB and highest address 6523 MB. I cannot believe that two brand new memory modules are defect. So I think the board has problems with 4 x 2 GB of memory (which is also hard to believe). I plan to run memtest86+ with 2 x 2 GB memory and see what happens and maybe swap the "bad" modules.

Has anybody got the AsRock P55 Extreme running with 4 x 2GB?
If so, which BIOS version do you use?

Am I the only one having issues with AHCI and AsRock P55 Extreme?

Any other ideas on how to further diagnose the problems?

have you made sure voltages and timings are set to recommended levels by the memory manufacturer? as well as voltages for everything else in BIOS?

Just to be sure: Currently, I have not changed any BIOS settings after the BIOS update (except for the failed test with AHCI enabled).

I just checked the memory timings:

I am using 2 2x2 GB Mushkin 10666 RAMs:
http://www.mushkin.com/Memory/Essentials/996586.aspx

The 9-9-9-24 timings I found on the mushkin web page match the timings in the BIOS OC Tweaker -> DRAM Timing Control. The DRAM Voltage in the OC Tweaker menu is 1.615V [auto] which I guess is ok, if the memory is specified with 1.5V.

Are there any specific voltages/problems to check? I have got a be quiet! Dark Power 530W PSU. So I think I should not have any power problems.

I dont know how p55s are, but for me, upping the northbridge from 1.1 to 1.18 helped a ton on my x58 along w/ vtt to 1.34.

Try testing just 2gigs.
