post #2141 of 6368
In most cases the only RAM timing settings to change are the first four, and the first one after the break. These are in order, matched up to timings such as (for example) 9-9-9-24

DRAM CAS# Latency - 9
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay - 9
DRAM RAS# PRE Time - 9
DRAM RAS# ACT Time - 24
==================
DRAM Timing Mode - 1N

If your ram is rated at 8-8-8-24-1N, it will most likely handle 7-7-7-20-1N more than 100mhz below it specified speed. Use Memtest86+ and benchmarks to verify stability. Make sure DRAM voltage is at least 1.6 (unless specified otherwise by the manufacturer).

So honest noob question here...

I've only overclocked 1 machine before this one - it was an E8400 that I got up to 4.1 Ghz about a year ago. Back then, I put in settings that I found online that seemed to have a good consensus, did a little tweaking and then tested it for about an hour in Prime 95 to see if it looked stable. After that, I was off to gaming and never touched it again (and never had any issues for over a year now). I'm wondering what the advantages are of running a 24hr Prime 95 immediately vs. just starting to use the computer for what you would normally use it for and seeing if it ever has issues.

Haha i always wondered the same thing.
Anyways i left prime95 running while at work. VCore is at 1.34 but it was still running when I got home so for now that is my sweet spot. I dunno who all you other peeps got such lower voltages. Must be one of ****tier ones in the batch that i got :-/

K, im going to go ahead and say my 4ghz is stable :-) Thanks everyone hehe. Now my last mission... 4.2Ghz so my ram is running to specs. Ill work on the timings later. Now, I would try to do the 4.2Ghz w/o HT. I was wondering if anyone has benches on various settings with HT on and off. If not im going to create a few so we all get an idea exactly what HT is doing in terms of games. (really all i care about hehe.)

O yes, almost fergot. Anyone able to use a usb keyboard in the bios? With my old evga 680i board it had USB support but my razer just straight up doesnt work and I dont see a setting in the BIOS for it. Any thoughts?

I'm sure everyone has their own reasons, but I think there are a few main ones:
  • Pushing your settings as far as they can go to the edge (you need to know where the edge is)
  • Getting a sense of completeness or peace of mind knowing that you are stable and don't have to worry about it
  • Making sure that the PC takes a dump in a controlled environment instead of when you really need it so you don't lose data/time/wipe the raid.

USB Keyboard here -- no problem, nothing to change to use it for getting around the BIOS.

Everything I've read says HT does next to nothing. I'm leaving it off to keep voltages down.

Do not be afraid to tweak other settings. You are already playing with the vcore and QPI, give some of the other voltages some TLC too.

The Board will let you know if you are getting into dangerous territory.

What BSOD code did you get?

I'd suggest upping the CPU PLL to 1.82 or 1.84. Still in the safe zones. You are working the CPU harder, so give the PLL a bit more power too.

Hi. Just fired up an i7 920 on the P6X58D.

If any of you are using the Corsair H50 cooler, can you please post your motherboard temps?

I was getting a CPU temp of 54 and a the chipset was at 49C.

The thing is, I havn't seen what the acceptable limits for the MoBo temps are and I'd like to compare notes.

Thanks BK
post #2150 of 6368
My motherboard temp is consistently 28-29C and my chip idles at 29C and approx. 60C under load. What kind of case are you using and how much other cooling do you have? I'm no expert here, but I would venture to say those are pretty high temps for idle.
