Got my i7 920 on my X58A-UD7 through 3Dmark06 at 4.85ghz for a score over 32,000. Acording to Future Mark website only the second score uploaded with my hardware configuration to do so gunner2.gif

Hi everyone, I'm late to the x58 bandwagon but have this build and am learning to tweak and OC it gradually.


GA-X58a-UD3R v2.0 bios rev:HN
Core i7-980x
18GB Corsair Dominator 2000Mhz
MSI 5970 2GB

I am currently only using Intel's stock cooler, but it actually seems pretty good considering.

If I could have some advice about over clocking it (it should be really easy considering it is unlocked).

I attempted to use the XMP profile 1 for the RAM, but promptly was never able to boot as it runs at 2000Mhz. I am reading that there is no real point in pushing the RAM any faster than stock anyway. So I am guessing that I should just get a good cooler and turn it up to 4.5ghz!

But seriously, I was curious about if I would be better off doing a lower multiplier and faster FSB?

e.g. 22x with 200FSB vs 31x with 133FSB

I wish I could do 4000Mhz Uncore... so I could use my Trident BBSE RAM to the max...

Now ive got myself some dominator gt 2000, and boy its driving this newbie up the wall,
Im trying to find a happy medium between ram speed and temps, as im using all 6 slots its making for a fun time,
The closest ive got is 4485mhz using 195 x 23 multi, its just not stable and i dont like the vcore or the heat,
Im under water as you can see in my rig in sig, here is a linky to my last effort http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2714291
Can anyone help teach me how to do this safely, im not looking 5ghz 24/7 im happy around 4.2ghz
Idealy id like to get 4.2 and have my ram as close to 2000hz as poss,
Thanks in advance for any help smile.gif

Hey guys,

I now have:
3 1.5TB Seagate drives. 7200.11 Sata 3GB/s
1 1TB Hitachi 7200 rpm
3 WD Red 3TB Drives intellipower Sata 6gb/s

1. I put the Windows OS on one of the new Seagate 1.5TB drives and I was wondering if I should have put this on the WD Red drive instead as it is SATA 6B/S

2. Which ports on my motherboard should I put the Red Drives on? Currently all of my drives are on the South Bridge. But I know the WD Red can utilize the SATA 6b/s ports should I use these? I read the Micron chip has issues and I wanted forgo any issues, if so would it have been better to have put the OS Drive on the WD RED then?

South Bridge:
6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2_0, SATA2_1, SATA2_2, SATA2_3, SATA2_4, SATA2_5) supporting up to 6 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10

Marvell 9128 chip:
2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3_6, GSATA3_7) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, and RAID 1
* SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum theoretical values. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
* SATA3 SSDs are not recommended for use in RAID 0 mode on Marvell SE9128 ports.

GIGABYTE SATA2 chip:
1 x IDE connector supporting ATA-133/100/66/33 and up to 2 IDE devices
2 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (GSATA2_8, GSATA2_9) supporting up to 2 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD

JMicron JMB362 chip:
2 x eSATA 3Gb/s connectors (eSATA/USB Combo) on the back panel sup- porting up to 2 SATA 3Gb/s devices
Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD

Thats real nice man, real nice.
But i get a tiny hunch you may kill it if you keep on pushing like this tongue.gif
Settle for something lower maybe?

Yeah it can be a complete PITA to do it, i tried with some Kingston 2000Mhz i had last year, it just wasnt worth the qpi/vtt i had to push to the IMC
so i sold it on.

I used the pea, small pea but try it out, experiment and look for the method that gives you good coverage without being full of air bubbles.
Its pretty easy to take i off and clean again, unlike having to take off a CPU water block when you have no backplate access mad.gif

Ah crap...i got the wrong idea, i didnt read properly and i thought you just mean the small heatsink.

I did once use the big pcie slot cooler thingy but its total garbage and if your lucky it may knock of like 1 degree or something but very much not worth the hassle.

Cant remember what method i used with the mahoosive cooler, sorry redface.gif

I have a ex58-ud3r(rev 1.6) with a i7-920.

I used to have clock 166(3.33ghz) and memory set for 8x with idle temp in the upper 30's. I just recently flashed the BIOS to FK but since then, when I do the same adjustments(leaving the other settings stock like I had before) my idle temps are upper 40's low 50's. Turning on HW monitor I see my vcore is cranked to 1.38(on auto mode) and is not throttling down, just staying constant.

If I manually adjust it to 1.25v it always stays at 1.25v.

If I leave the BIOS settings stock and shut off clock control it acts completely normal, only stock idle temps in the mid 30's.

Any suggestions or advice as to why this is happening now?
