I definitely think it needs some more volts somewhere too. The thing is where??

so did you try the one slot ?

post bios your settings

I'm re-doing my overclock for maximum efficiency since I'm trying to make my caseless PC silent. I thought this might be useful for others with this board who want top clock speed with minimum (i.e. silent) cooling requirements.

With EIST and C1E enabled, multiplier locked at 21x, and Vcore set to 'offset' the minimum adjustment is +0.0065v. The default Vcore at this multiplier coded in the BIOS microcode is 1.25v, so the actual Vcore is 1.2565v. Right now I have LLC enabled, so rather than Vdroop the Vcore at full load (LinX 8 threads, 5200MB) actually rises to 1.264v in CPU-Z. This is stable for 25 LinX runs with bclk 192 = 4.03GHz. Minimum stable QPI/Dram 1.21875v, VDimm 1.5v, timings 7-7-7-20-1T @ 1535Mhz. Other settings are basically at their minimum: IOH and IOH (1.1v), CPU PLL (1.8v), CPU diff amplitude 700mV, CPU & IOH clock skews 'normal'. At idle Vcore drops to 0.960v.

I am going to disable LLC and see how high I can get the blck with the lower load Vcore that will allow. I am thinking 3.8GHz or so may be possible, and I bet the Noctua NH-D14 will be able to keep things cool enough without any fan.

Hey Cullen, thanks for pointing out that typo. It affected the 3.6/3.8/4.0 templates. Hopefully others that used them were smart enough to realize it shouldn't have been enabled for the non-HT OC.

1. You need a larger increase in Vcore to go from 3.8>4 then you do from 4>4.2; that means something isn't right at 4.0. I'd suggest reconfiguring your 4.0 overclock using the 21x multiplier at bclk 191. Do this and I bet you will be able to lower your Vcore to the 1.3 - 1.325v range. The slight underclock of your RAM is irrelevant. Others have stated, and it has been true with my experimentation, that the 20x multiplier is inherently less stable than the 19x or 21x. As for why that is, I still haven't seen an explanation that I buy but for whatever reason it seems to be true.

2. You can destabilize your overclock by manipulating the IOH, ICH, CPU diff amplitude, and skews. Try IOH and ICH on 'auto' (or manual=1.1), CPU diff ampitude on 'auto' or 700mv, and both clock skews to 'normal'. I am running 8800 Ultra SLI (almost as power hungry as the Fermi) and only when I was trying 4.3 & 4.4 overclocks did I have to raise IOH - only one or two of my three DIMMs would be detected at 1.1v. If all your memory is accounted for and you are not getting GPU-related errors, you may be most stable at 1.1v. ICH is the southbridge which is pretty far downstream from the components stressed that overclocking stresses... have yet to see a good explanation on why increasing this will do anything other than increase heat. As for CPU differential amplitude and clock skew... well I've played with them and cannot say they have ever helped stabilize and unstable overclock.

3. You can also try overclock settings with LLC disabled. You will of course need to set higher Vcore settings in BIOS (about +0.04-0.06 at 1.2x volts, +0.06-0.08v at 1.3x volts) than with it enabled. I use it and like it bult really it is a solution for a problem that doesn't really exist, and it does add stress to the system. But it is nice to see the lower Vcore setting in the BIOS and Turbo-V With it disabled, find the lowest Vcore at full load that is stable. Then if you want, enable it and see if that value will still work. You need to run LinX with at least 5,120mb RAM to get the maximum Vdroop! Any less doesn't fully stress compute cores and IMC at the same time.

4. You can try overclocking with power saving features (EIST, C1E, Vcore offset) enabled. While this probably won't help stability, on the P6X58D it doesn't seem to hurt it either. If you can use the same load Vcore and get drastically lower idle Vcore, why not ?
Thanks for the advice. I am going to give this a try and see how that goes. So far I managed to convert some VCore voltage into QPI/DRAM by gradually reducing a few notches from one and increasing the other. My system is running stable. I have 2 4.0GHz OC's, 200 x 20 and 191 x 21. I have noticed that 200 x 20 is slightly more difficult to keep stable but I get better results with this OC running Super PI and Hyper PI.

I am going to implement some of your suggestions and then I am going to try lowering my voltages and testing. I would be happy to run my 4.0Ghz OC at VCore 1.2875v and QPI/DRAM 1.25v. Well, actually I can boot and run my computer but when I try any stability testing software my system fails miserably. That's how I got to the voltages I am presently using. Right now my voltages are VCore 1.31875v and 1.26875v QPI/DRAM for 4.0Ghz and VCore 1.3875 and 1.26875 QPI/DRAM.

I have tried a whole bunch of voltage settings but none other than these seem to work. I am almost resigned to the fact that maybe my CPU is voltage hungry and I have to learn to live with it as it is.

Will keep you posted on how thing go. Cheers!

This board is a dream! Amazing job on the walk-throughs here (did find the 930 requires quite a bumb in voltages compared to the 920 ). Add me to the list please! 4.0Ghz currently without much time in tweaking (very stable currently). Temps; 43c idle 78c load. Some time spent tweaking will drop these a bit more. This place is too much joy

Hello all,
Iam having a strange problem here with this board. This is my situation:
I have 2 WD CB 640GB SATA 3 drives connected to the MB and have already installed WIN 7 x64 Ultimate. Now I'd like to setup these 2 drives in RAID 0 (I do however fully understand that I will have to reinstall the OS, that isn't a problem)

Things already done in BIOS:
BIOS->Main->Storage Configuration->"Configure SATA as": I have set it to RAID

The questions I have:
1) How do I get to the Matrix Storage manager option ROM during POST? The MB manual says to use CTRL+I (Eye) key combo to get to it but that did not seem to work for me.

2) Also when I go into BIOS->Advanced->Onboard Devices Config I noticed that the Marvell 9123 controller was set to IDE mode. I thought that should be set to AHCI mode for RAID to work so I changed it to AHCI Mode, saved and rebooted but I got BSOD.

EDIT:
My BIOS is at v02.61. Revision 0703


Anything Iam doing wrong here or missed? Whatelse do I need to set up a RAID 0 array?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Cheers
Mav

just asking cause plain around with the fan speed i noticed that if i turn that one down i barely hear anything from the pc just wanna make sure im not turning down the pump or anyfans on the rad
