Here is a shot of when I had the voltage at 1.3 just for safety's sake, I've since bumped it down to 1.25.



I'll be trying for 4.2 GHz today.
Awesome dude! Glad to be of help. I'm also tinkering with 4.2GHz to try and find the lowest stable settings to run it at. I'll report back what I find. Lots of trial and errors though. Stay tuned!

YAY! grats man. WB!

My order has been shipped. I should have it all by Thursday.

That's if I don't have a heart attack resulting from an anxiety attack before then.

@ 4.2Ghz I am 2hr primestable (blend) with these settings:

1.375 Vcore was the lowest for my rig

http://www.overclock.net/8384582-post648.html

My temps got as high as 90 degrees on my hottest core but it was because of my house heater being behind the tower, i changed that.

I didnt see my temps get past 83 degrees after that.

Let me know if you need any other setting info..

New system:

Asus P6X58D (BIOS 0604)
Intel i7-920 (D0, 3923A766)
Intel 160GB G2 SSD
Crucial DDR3 6GB Ballistix Tracer
Noctua NH-D14
EVGA 8800 Ultra SLI (pending Fermi)
Asus Xonar Essence STX
Seasonic X-750
Microcool Banchetto 101


First, great motherboard. Went together quickly and intuitively, booted up first time. Looks decent (would have preferred darker blue plastic, but at least the board itself is black and there are no particularly obnoxious colors). Runs cool. Recovers well from failed O/C settings. No complaints!

Had high hopes for overclocking my CPU to 4.2-4.4GHz, but seem to have a weird processor. Using all the quick guides to 4.0 (i.e. presetting Vcore and QPI/Dram to 1.3+) failed. Settings posted previously in this thread failed too.

So starting on my own...

Intel Speedstep disabled, spread sprectrum disabled, Max Phase enabled, LLC enabled, APIC 2.0 enabled, hyperthreading enabled, DRAM bus voltage 1.66, other voltages auto. Memory & QPI multipliers set at lowest setting.

CPU multiplier set to 12 in BIOS. Start rising bclk in Turbo-V with prime95 (small FFT) running eight threads. Auto / minimum voltage of 1.2 good through 190, then crash. Bump to 1.20625 then good through at least 213 - didn't go highe since my ultimate goal was 21 x 200.

Next, CPU multipler set to 21 in BIOS. Blck reduced to 150. Start rising blck in Turbo-V with prime95 (again small FFT) running eight threads. Auto voltage of 1.2 good to nearly 3.9Ghz, then crash. Start raising Vcore to maintain stability, while continuing to slowly raise blck. Small Vcore bumps did not have much affect, ultimately 1.28125v was necessary for stability at 3.99Ghz (190x21).

Temps remain good, peak core values 65-70 at full load with eight prime95 (small FFT) threads running. Memory ratio increased to DDR3 1523 @ 8-8-8-24-1T. Prime95 stable overnight. So I got my 4GHz!

Given how much extra voltage was needed to go from 3.9GHz just to 4.0GHz, I doubt it is worth pushing onward. Now I did try adjusting PLL (to 1.82 - 1.88) and IOH (to 1.2 - 1.3) as recommended in some of the guides, without any benefit. In fact raising these voltages seemed to make prime95 crash quicker although that could have been random.

Anyone else have this pattern of i7-920 D0 CPU performance ? Would still love to get 4.2-4.4Ghz (just for my ego!) if anyone has suggestions other than buying a try of CPUs and testing them all

Other thoughts on this build:

The Banchetto 101 is sweet! Connectors on P6X58D are well placed for good cable management with this "case". I can post photos if anyone wants.

The Crucial DDR3 looks dope with the red and green activity LEDs and blue ground effects LEDs. And there are no clearance issues from tall heatsinks. It runs fine at 1600Mhz at 8-8-8-24-1T with 1.64v. I was hoping it would run at 7-7-7-20-1T at 1.66v but no go; some have said they had an extra XMP profile with these settings, my set does not. If I use those timings in BIOS, only one or two of the three channels is recognized...

The Noctua NH-D14 is a great cooler. Great mounting system and very well made. On the P6X58D, even without the 12cm fan one of the towers does partially cover the very first DIMM channel -- which would only be an issue if you use six DIMMs. With three DIMMs, you can use any size RAM modules if you leave off the 12cm fan.

I'm a serious audiophile and the Asus Xonar Essence STX is a damn good sound card. The headphone output is quite capable with full size cans and high end IEMs (JH Audio JH13Pro). The S/PDIF digital output is very clean and makes a great source for an outboard DAC. It uses a 4-pin molex for power thus avoids the contaminated ground of the motherboard, and has a Faraday cage over the active components to minimze effects from stray EMI.

I just ran these settings last night and it was stable for 8 hours of prime95 blend, temps were 69-73C. All settings are the same as 4 GHz except for VID@1.35 and QPI@1.3.

I did think it a bit strange, but apparently you will get cooler temps that way. Personally I did it how corsair recommends (but mind you, my top case fans act as an exhaust -- blowing air out of the case). Just for your reference, my idle temps are approx 33 degrees, and full load is about 60 degrees (though ive got that .05 bump of cpu voltage over yours). BTW, its been 48 hours of dedicated encoding now.. no reboots, no BSODs.. looking good so far
Yeah, for the airflow, it is really case specific, regardless of what Corsair recommends. There's really no way for them to say this is the proper or best way, as there are so many different styles of cases on the market. My recommendation would be to try both intake and exhaust and see which way works best for your specific case.

BTW, great to hear that you're 48 hours into encoding with no issues!

Welcome to the club! Also, congrats on reaching 4Ghz! I was just going to mention that if the previous settings I posted weren't stable for your chip, try bumping your Core Voltage up +.050 and see if that works out for you. If not, then try dropping BCLK Frequency down one notch from 191 to 190 and report back. Also, yeah, with this chip, anything over 3.8Ghz starts requiring a lot more voltage. I'm going to find some new settings to reach 4.2Ghz soon without going to high on the voltages, but, I think once I find it I'll end up dropping back down to 4Ghz.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm currently playing around with 1.28125v @ 4.2Ghz OC. It's stable for me so far, using IBT - "High" Stress Level - 20 Passes. I'm going to run it on "Very High" - 20 passes and see how it does. Might have to bump it up again though. I'll post back my results soon.
