The ASUS/ASrock P55 and X58 Club & Discussion(Under construction) - Page 27

post #261 of 329
Hey guys! New member here and just wanted to say how awesome the Asrock P55 extreme is. 3.5Ghz on the I5 750 with just a multiplier change to 167. I prefer this I guess because it throttles down when just like web browsing and stuff. I've tried to get my multiplier past 167 with no luck. Even changing the multiplier to 168, and I lock up. I've tried upping the volts and still can't get past. I'm thinking it may be my memory? Any other reasons why this may be?

Best to start from scratch and approach the overclocking process properly. Diving head
first into it with core voltage increases is not the best approach. Instead, do it step by
step and you'll not only achieve better results, you'll learn a lot along the way. See:

http://www.overclockers.com/3-step-g...core-i3-i5-i7/

First thing I would recommend, as the article says, is to ensure your heat sink is
attached in the correct manner as per the instructions from Arctic Silver:

http://www.arcticsilver.com/intel_ap...on_method.html

Download the PDF relevant to your system and read through the instructions
carefully. Before, using my own 'normal' method (thin paste layer over the whole
chip surface), I had uneven core temps. Thus, I redid the HS attachment using AS'
instructions; temps were not only much more even, they were also a couple of
degrees lower overall. Well worth doing.

I now have my 860 running at 4011 (191 x 21):

new bios released I'm about to flash to it myself. It looks like they updated most of their x58 and 1156 BIOSes

How is the new BIOS?

its MOSTLY all the the same. I did notice that i can select the amount of cores i want to be used in the bios, i don't remember seeing that before in the BIOS, or maybe they moved it to a different spot.

OK everybody, new problem. I just tried to upgrade my system from 6gb to 12gb and can't seem to overclock at all. I've tried all the ASROCK predefined overclock settings to no avail. Command Rate is 2t for all configurations. As you can see from my sig, this system works fine at 4.2ghz with 6gb, but won't even boot at the Asrock EZ OC 3.6ghz settings with 12gb.

Actually, even at 4.2ghz with 6gb, the system would still automatically reduce the cpu multiplier from 21 to 20 resulting in 4ghz at maximum load. Never was able to figure out how to hold the cpu multi to 21, but didn't matter. 4ghz under max load was fine. Nevertheless, none of that matters now, if I want to use 12gb (and I do for virtual machine software work...), since I can't seem to figure out how to overclock with more ram.

Any ideas? I'm sure I'm missing some obscure voltage setting or the like. I've sent email tech support request to Asrock without any replies and this seems to be the only decent forum with any Asrock x58 class information. Thanx in advance.

Did you try running memtest on each of the new sticks of memory?

Also, I was having trouble with my system, it turns out that the sata cables that came with my motherboard sucked, so that was why i had trouble loading windows sometimes. Ever since I started using some other sata cables, i've had no trouble loading windows.

Yep, all the sticks test fine with Memtest86+ v4.10, both as a group and individually. The more I'm reading about this board, the more I realize I probably should have spent more money and got an Asus, EVGA or Gigabyte equivalent. Not so much for the difference in quality, but for the wealth of online support available. For example, EVGA has techs that monitor their own in house forums and various user forums that help with these kinds of issues. I haven't seem anything close to this from Asrock. I even sent their tech support an email on the 21x multiplier issue over a month ago and never received a response.

I've downloaded more information on various BIOS settings for other x58 boards overclocked to 4ghz+ and loaded with 12gb RAM. I'll experiment this weekend and let you all know how it goes. Thanx for the quick response.

Well, I gave up trying to get the x58 Deluxe to support 12gb RAM with an i7-920 D0 clocked to 4ghz +. Nothing seemed to work and no combination of BIOS settings that I could find helped.

I got lucky and found a new boxed i7-975 Extreme Edition for $550 on eBay and replaced the 920. Installed the new CPU; upped the voltage to 1.384 to account for vdroop; and, changed the multi to 30. 4ghz and works like a champ with 12gb RAM.

I'll put the 920 in a spare x58 Extreme that I have and upgrade the wife's system. Anyway, I promised an update when I found a solution. I know this was an easy option, but I just don't have time to keep experimenting hoping that some magical combination of BIOS settings will work.
