lol. i haven't even found the need to overclock the cpu. right now it's moderately clocked at 3.2ghz. this cpu is gonna last me awhile biggrin.gif

btw it's great to see this thread still going. i'll try help out here as often as i can. cheer guys!

oh and jmaz, kzinti is right. no one cpu is the same. some are bound to overclock better than others. xmisery's settings are more of a guide than copy and paste.

So off I go into bois. Set settings and save and exit
Now when I do that it restarts and same message new CPU installed.
So if try again n again n again no luck. So I f2 load standard bois and in to windows I go. Then when I restart.
Same message.
New CPU installed.
Things iv tried.
Changed CMOS batt
Cleared. CMOS
Reseated all wires.
Reseated all gpu cards and ram
Reseated CPU all looks fine no bent pins.
Nothing on mo board looks out of place.
The new test bench is a lian li mo Bo tray mounted in a box. Everthing looks right there as well.
Pulling my hair out trying to find problem.
Any help would be tops.
Thanks.


Updating BIOS is the first thing I'd try.

Hello all,

Motorcycle forum veteran here, but this is my first post to Overclockers.....and I'm hopin' there is a kind soul out there that can answer a few questions for a stubborn old fighter pilot.

I'm about the pull the trigger on a P6X58D Premium mobo and an i7-980 Gulftown CPU (among other components). The final question I need answered before I whip out my credit card regards RAM. I came to you because it is evident that y'all are about the most savvy crowd on the 'Net when it comes to hardware....

I'm tryin' to choose among the following three (and only the following three) RAM buys:

3x4GB sticks (12GB total) of Kingston ValueRAM @ 1066

3x4GB sticks (12GB total) of Kingston HyperX RAM @ 1600

6x4GB sticks (24GB total) of Kingston HyperX RAM @ 1600

Now, here's the strange part: I do not wish to overclock anything in the machine (gasp!)! I do not wish to drive the RAM using anything more than 1.5v (gasp!)! I do not wish run the RAM at anything faster than 1066 (gasp!)!

Are you still with me? Good, 'cause here come the questions.


QUESTIONS:

1. Will the HyperX RAM run cooler, everything else being equal, than the ValueRAM under the operating constraints I listed above (1066/1.5v.)? FYI, system will be air cooled in a three-fan Lian Li PC-9F case, utilizing nothing but stock component coolers.

2. Has anyone here been able to pull off 24GB of Kingston HyperX 1600 running at 1066 @ 1.5v and still be able to boast of supreme, long-term stability?

3. If I buy one of the HyperX kits and pop the DIMMs into my new mobo's memory slots, what will the system default to on initial boot?

3a. Will it be 1066/1.5v?

3b. What will the timings default to?

3b(i). If said timings default to something different than 7-7-7-20, should I then change them to 7-7-7-20?

3c. Should I expect the BIOS to see all 12GB (or 24GB) right off the bat?


AND NOW THE HARD PART: Anyone questioning me with something along the lines of "why would you want to do this......) will be shot, then dismembered! And, if anyone asks why I want all that RAM, then I'll REALLY get violent! Let's keep the discussion on the hardware, not upon my twisted personal desires (vbg).

Seriously, thanks, y'all, for helping me out!!!!!

I'm probably not the best person to answer your questions but thought I'd take a stab at it since it's been nearly 20 hours since you posted and haven't gotten a response yet.

1) With the heat spreaders it should. BUT at that frequency and voltage the difference will be marginal and I wouldn't consider it worth the cost.

2) Doubt you'll find too many people here running their RAM that slow. I have seen a few thread members here running 24 GB's though.

3a) I believe it will default to 1066/1.5v but it has been quite some time since I've seen the default values. Wouldn't suprise me if it went ahead and defaulted at 1333MHz, I don't think that is the case though. Even if it were to default to 1333MHz it will be very easy to change in BIOS.

3bi) Default timings change per the frequency of the RAM. At 1066 it might default tighter than the 7-7-7-20 and if so I'd just leave it. If it defaults looser then I'd set it manually.

3c.) Expect to have to hit the memOK button and possibly clear CMOS before it recognizes it.

Ok go ahead and shoot and dismember me rolleyes.gif. Looking at the specs of what you want to build though I'd have to give serious consideration to Sandy Bridge Extreme. Haven't seen the latest release date info but it has to be getting close.

Partly because of your input, I've decided to go with the G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 24GB (6 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T2-24GBRL. If I can't get 24GB to work reliably without an OC, I'll just start yanking DIMMs until I can. Later, after my warranties expire and I feel the need, I can add the kitted RAM that I was storing and OC as needed. With RAM this cheap, I didn't really see any downsides to this plan.
Re the Sandy Bridge....I didn't mention it in my OP, but I plan to be rocking Debian stable on my new build.....and Sandy Bridge is not playing real well with Linux yet!
Thanks again!


UPDATE:

Things appear to be working out so far.....

The BIOS is showing all 24GB of memory.....happened on first POST, with no heroics required.

My BIOS shows the "Target DRAM Frequency" to be 1333 MHz, which is fine for me. Timings are listed as 9-9-9-24, which is, again, fine for me.

FYI, I've got the "Ai Overclock Tuner" set to "Auto" and the "DRAM Frequency" also set to "Auto", and I've loaded the 1501 BIOS using the "E-Z Flash 2" tool.

So far, so good (KOW). I'll update when I get the OS loaded (Debian stable).
post #5184 of 6378
Update.

Other things I forgot to say where.

I tried 3 different bois updates. The last 3

All my ram is showing up fine.

Also in bois under power management my volts where
12+ was 11.9
5+ was 5.1
3.3 was 3.2

Next update.

Now won't post at all. Solid red light on mem ok. In manual it says hardware failure.
Tried removing one thing at a time untill I got down to just mo Bo and CPU

I'm going to take stab and say the mother board is dead.

Few other details.
Lately my rig has been having random lookups I thought it might of been bf3.
Also one of my ram sticks died so replaced ram and got a new corsair 1200 psu.

Maybe the problem is bigger then I think.
Game first.

I've seen a TON of posts that refer to xmisery's 4Ghz guide, but for the life of me, I can't seem to find it.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction, or even better, a link to that post.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, I don't see any 4.0GHz tutorials under that name.

Start PC, when the post message comes on the screen, hold DEL on keyboard into BIOS.
X.M.P. overclock preference
BLCK Frequency -- 190MHz
DRAM FREQ -- 1523 w/ 1600MHz Corsair Dominator

Automatic 4.0GHz on the i7 CPU I first started out with (i7 920 D0)
Since it's a locked multiplier, slowly make your way up there with the BLCK frequency (higher BLCK = higher CPU clock speed)
It's been a while since I had my old i7 920 in the socket, but I'm sure 190MHz BLCK is a 4000MHz/4.00GHz overclock.

EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPyHVGmyjQo

p6x58d overclocking on a i7 920, same stuff that concerns your i7 950, no worries.

Thanks for that, I was wondering where this guide people were talking about was.

The 920 has a stock multi of 21, whereas the my 950 has 23. So 190x23 would give me 4.37Ghz. Thats prolly a bit too high for air cooling. I can manually set the multiplier to 21 though. I tried those settings with a vcore of 1.28v and it failed on the 3rd pass of IBT. I also had my DRAM voltage at 1.5v (stock voltage for Corsair Vengeance).

Any other settings that I should look at? Thanks for your help.

I believe that is what you are looking for. Post #2 of this thread.

For your 950 you might look at something a little more like this:
Quote:
Ai Overclock Tuner.....................[Manual]
CPU Ratio Setting......................[23.0]
Intel(r) SpeedStep(tm) Tech............[Disabled]
Xtreme Phase Full Power Mode...........[Enabled]
BCLK Frequency.........................[174]
PCIE Frequency.........................[100]
DRAM Frequency.........................[DDR3-1392MHz] (2:8; select closest to)
UCLK Frequency.........................[2784MHz] (2X the above setting but like above I didn't go into bios to double check the selection so my rounding might be a bit off )
QPI Link Data Rate.....................[Auto]
CPU Voltage Control....................[Manual]
CPU Voltage............................[1.30]
CPU PLL Voltage........................[1.80]
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage..................[1.25]

IOH Voltage............................[1.14]
IOH PCIE Voltage.......................[1.50]
ICH Voltage............................[1.20]
ICH PCIE Voltage.......................[1.50]
DRAM Bus Voltage.......................[1.50] (start with stock voltage but might have to raise it. )
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHA...........[Auto]
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHA...........[Auto]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHB...........[Auto]
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHB...........[Auto]
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHC...........[Auto]
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHC...........[Auto]
Load-Line Calibration..................[Enabled]
CPU Differential Amplitude.............[800mV]
CPU Clock Skew.........................[Auto]
CPU Spread Spectrum....................[Disabled]
IOH Clock Skew.........................[Auto]
PCIE Spread Spectrum...................[Disabled]
C1E Support............................[Disabled]
Hardware Prefetcher....................[Enabled]
Adjacent Cache Line Prefetch...........[Enabled]
Intel(r) Virtualization Tech...........[Disabled]
CPU TM Function........................[Enabled]
Execute Disable Bit....................[Enabled]
Intel(r) HT Technology.................[Enabled]
Active Processor Cores.................[All]
A20M...................................[Disabled]
Intel(r) SpeedStep(tm) Tech............[Disabled]
Intel(r) C-STATE Tech..................[Disabled]

Now these settings are more like a quick start guide, A place to start. Expect to have to adjust CPU Voltage and QPI/DRAM Core Voltage. The settings above should get you in the right ballpark though.

First, Hi to all!
I'm new here, and i really need some help.
Ok, i have a i7 975 extreme running right now at just over 4.0. Cpu-Z says 40.28, x30, bus at 134.3,
QPI @ 3222.6 running @ 1.416 volts.
I have OCZ memory (OCZ3G1600V2G) running at Dram freq. 805.6 with clocks set at 8-8-8-24. I have 12 Mbyes
I am running 2 ATi Radeon HD5870 in crossfire at clock speeds of 900 and memory clock at 1300 (max with their software)
One of the cards is the 5870XXX Edition (main card)
My questions are (and problems,lol)...
1..I really would like to up the speed of the cpu..I know it can do better, but i have no idea how. I just raised the x to30 to get that 4.0. any more and i crash.
2. I don't think I have the memory set right either
3. Is the memory good? (OCZ) Or can I get better? Money is not really a problem
4. I have run 3Dmark tests (Mark 11) and I have low scores (2790)..WHY?
Can someone please tell me what settings would be the best to get my rig working better. I know it can do better!
If you need more info, please ask away
Thanks
Don

Hey guys... been lurking for awhile and never bothered to really post (even though I had an account).
I've recently come across some issues and I'm trying to determine what the problem is.

Problem/Symptoms:
In BF3 my GPU usage/processing will randomly drop to 80% on both video cards and due to the drop I get strange frame rate drops for about 10-15 seconds, then the GPU usage kicks back up to 98/99 and things are fine. This recently started happening when I switched my GTX 570s from the 16x/16x configuration to 16x/8x config (slot 1/3 vs slot 1/2) and changed from the standard 2-way SLI Flex Bridge to the 3-WAY SLI Bridge.

Current Setup:
I do run dual monitors so I can get a live monitor of my system (temp/cpu & gpu usage)... and I've noticed the aforementioned problem only happens when I'm in dual monitor mode with the recommended nvidia settings (dual monitor performance mode?). If I switch to single monitor I don't have problems with the 16x/8x config. I do have to note that when I was running 16x/16x in dual monitor mode I didn't have ANY problems.

The reason I moved from the 16x/16x config to the 16x/8x config is for heat issues (don't feel like having the cards run at 70% fans if I don't have to).

My root cause analysis:
I think what's happening is due to either
1) The 16x/8x configuration
2) The SLI bridge

Would a BIOS update will fix this? This has happened on the most recent nvidia prod. drivers and on the new nvidia beta

I currently have -
CPU: Intel i7 930 @ 4.0GHz
Prolimatech Megahalem Rev. B Heatsink with CoolerMaster SickleFlow fans in push/pull
Motherboard: Asus P6X58D Premium
RAM: 12GB Corsair Dominator DDR3 1600 (8-8-8-24, 1.65V) Triple Channel
SLI Configuration 16x/8x (PCI-E Slot 1/3): Gigabyte GTX 570 OC Edition
Hard Drive 1: 1GB Western Digita Caviar Blackl SATA III (6 gb/s)
Hard Drive 2: 750GB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA II (3 gb/s) storage drive.
Power Supply: Corsair HX1000W Modular PSU

thanks in advance!
