Rampage III Extreme X58 Information thread - Page 96

post #951 of 1810
A couple of questions,
IOH Voltage, what is the safe operating limits for this? 24/7

What is the consensus regarding these 4 options, that may be beneficial to overclocking?
CPU Differential Amplitude [Auto]
CPU Clock Skew [Auto]
IOH Clock Skew [Auto]

Leave those on auto. The only time they would come in handy is if you were going for records. I believe the max recommended IOH is 1.35V. Not sure though. Default should be 1.1V.

Also, according to a member of XS, Asus said they have not released the necessary drivers for iDirect to work.

So they released the app but not the drivers. That's smart.

Just loaded the new 1005 BIOS from ASUS. Cant really tell a difference right now considering I just reapplied AS5 and have a few hours of benching ahead.

Also trying to figure out why i only show 2 cores and 4 threads in windows when i enable HT in the BIOS. Anyone had this before? I think i might have to take off my H70 and check the mobo and CPU connections but i dont see how they couldve been damaged.

Iam new here.
Is it normal to have a huge thread like this?

Usally if there are many threads they create a list just for that board.

Most popular hardware has dedicated threads like these that do get kind of big. It's normal.

Thanks
I think you should update but remember to write down the BIOS settings because saved OC profiles don't work in 1005 and NEVER update through Windows. Copy BIOS to flash drive and use EZ Flash I believe it's called. It 100% safe that way. 1005 is more stable and in my case I was able to lower my voltage a little bit.

This could be two things. In the BIOS, there's also a section for enabled cores in the CPU configuration tab.

If that is set to All, try this:

When you boot into Windows, do the following:

Windows + R
Type "msconfig" and hit enter
Click Boot and the Advanced Options

Make sure number of processors is either unchecked or set to 8.

Time for opinions.

I'm sitting at 4.5ghz (23x195) and having a hard time stabilizing. The chipset temps are 60-71C while running LinX. I have had to set the PWM frequency as low as possible to just not overheat the chipset and crash it.

Would I gain the extra stability to fully stabilize by increasing adding a chipset block to my loop and thus increasing things like PWM frequency? I already know it won't probablly won't give me a higher overclock, because at 4.6ghz it gives BSOD 101 with 1.55v vcore.


Long Story Short: Will adding a chipset block give me a real benefit?

I've read earlier that someone mentioned for the Ramapge III you'll need 1.45v for the IOH to stabilize at a high OC on some chips, give that a try.

Edit: I was trying to find the link for this info, but couldn't find it. 1.45v for the IOH seems excessive, I'd try 1.35v just to see where you go with it.
