i didn't try QPi because, in the past i tried the QPi up to 1.355v and the instability was there ... but yes... i'll try pumping out the QPi ... It was kind of stupid from me being this descriptive and not trying the QPi before posting this entry ehehehe

Is there some PCie limitation on my x58-UD3R MB..?? It seems that my gpu stops benefiting from higher cpu clocks. I've always used AMD and for some reason with this Intel setup I sense something is limiting me on my gpu. I cannot beat one of my AMD scores in 3dmark06 with the same gpu OC.

Sometimes we just need to be reassured before continuing.
I use around 1.45 QPI and higher depending on what kind of clocks I am running.

No limitation, but you can turn up the frequency.

What x58 MB does NOT limit the GPU potential with high cpu clocks?

what are you talking about? my GPU scores increase with OC?

I am talking about PCI-E frequency, the EX58 boards are lock4ed. For instance my Sb system at 5.1ghz putsout amazing GPU scores.

I'm confused now too. When I OC I increase PCI-E frequency on my X58 and it will improve scores.

Well... after some tweeking ... here it is ... 4.3 HT on ...
Now, something weird happened... i was tuning my voltages to 4.3 HT off... in the middle i tried to get to 4.5 and it bsod... bios recovered... went to the bios and everything was with the last settings i inserted ( for the 4.5 ) ... so i stepped back the bclk and voltages... and i did some benches... naice... i was able to decrease Vcore to 1.375, CPU PLL to 1.8, QPI PLL to 1.2 ...

but then... something weird caught my attention




Uploaded with ImageShack.us

In fact ... i was using HT on ... when i'm 100% sure it was off ... and the computer was stable with a little less voltage than it was with ht off 2 days ago ...

Any thoughts? Why did the bios kept all the values when it recovered from the 4.5 attempt and turned on the HT ?!? :x ... glitch in the matrix?

Vcore: 1.375v
QPIVTT: 1.295v
CPU PLL: 1.80v
QPI PLL: 1.20v
IOH Core: 1.20v
ICH Core: 1.16v
Uncore: x17
PCIe: 103
21x205

Well if it is a glitch, it's a good one.

Yes i mean, 4.3 with 1.375 and 1.295qpi it's not that bad ... the problem is that ... why tha hell now it's stable! ... Oh well...

Here's the settings i was using for the 4.3 HT Off stable

and this is the 3D Mark results...




So i guess everything is working properly Weird Weird stuff...
