post #2121 of 6325
I just booted my new build but it freezes randomly (won't even get past installation at random points). I am guessing it's a RAM issue for now.

I have 4 stick of Corsair 2gb cm3x2g1333c9 RAM = 8gb in total.

What changes should I make to the bios to ensure stability? Here is what Corsair Tech recommends. Currently, I am running the memtest on default settings. I will update this post with the result once it's done.

Thank you

Hey folks. First round of OC'ing here and its looking... ok...
Im at least able to boot into windows now. Im using Misery's 3.8 as a base.

Current VCore is 1.3
Current QPI/DRAM is 1.275

Getting a 1D stop after only 2 minutes or so :-(

Trying 1.325 Vcore now. Any suggestions. Im also using the 930. seems i shouldve gone with the 920 :-(


Anyone with a 930 and at 4.0 can you hook me up with some bios settings? Would be greatly appreciative.

Corsair tech support recommends this but I don't know how do I set the setting highlighted in red:

"With 4 modules I would suggest setting the memory frequency at DDR1066 or DDR1333 and set the memory Voltage to 1.7-1.90 Volts and set the NB/MCH/SPP Voltage to +.2Volts"

Where can I find the NB/MCH/SPP voltage setting? Thanks

I followed the directions for 4.01 posted a few pages back. Had to bump the CPU up to 1.288 V to get it stable in Prime 95, but everything else is the same as listed for that OC. Be sure you turn HT off. Hyperthread was killing me on everything over 3.8 and I've seen several benchmarks showing that the extra CPU speed far out performs HT.

ahhh yes my hyperthreading is still on. Didnt Misery get it stable at 4.0 with hyperthreading on the 920. How are these chips so different?

Anyways ill try that next, doing another shot at prime 95 at 4.0 w/ HT. only 10 minutes in but its better. The only downside is my Vcore is 1.325 but then again my temps idle are about 40 across the board and right now full load looks like 75 73 74 69

As Medred said below, you can get HT stable at 4.0. I just haven't had enough time, nor inclination, to mess with it.

Honest question for anyone... have any of you seen benchmarks for gaming that show that at over 4.0 Ghz, HT actually enhances things significantly? Everything I read suggested that it's kind of pointless for the extra voltage required.

OH.. and one more follow up... I was able to get 4.0 to run stable with HT on, but my temps were into the 80's because I'm air cooled. I don't like those temps so I turned HT off. Everything I've read says the extra .2 Ghz means a lot more for gaming than running 3.8 with HT. So, when given a choice between the two, I went with 4.01, minus HT.

Hey everyone! After a few months of being gone I'm back up and running again. I had to relocate to a different state and everything. I see lots of new members have joined here since then. "Welcome all you newcomers!"

I also noticed a lot more people are picking up the i7 930 chip. I'd like to update my 920 OC postings (on page 1) with the settings for these 930's to hopefully help some of some of the existing members and any future members as well. Unfortunately, I can't test the 930 since I don't own one, so I'll be relying on alot of your feedback so I can update the posts accordingly.

Thanks for your support and lets keep this awesome thread growing!
