Hey so i'm sitting @ 4.3 prime and IBT stable but have been stable @ 4.4 although upgraded bios and inadvertantly wiped settings damn %&^$.. Temps idle at 39-41c and max just on 76 which is acceptable..

Anyway wondering if anyone had success @ or above 4.3-4.4 with ud7 and trident 2000 for comparison because i 'm pretty confident the 960 and 5970 won't cause me issues b4 heat gets in the way..

To be honest i'm looking for a 4.5 but anything over 4.4 is alluding me. plus i just wanna tweak down further and perhaps some of the finer settings are conflicting.. Must say the UD7 is a great board..

Few settings for ya'll

BIOS F7r
Currently @ 4.3 (25x172)
RAM @ 2064 9-9-9-24 T1 (1.60V) (Can tweak futher have been 8-8-8-22 but V @ 1.68)
Vcore 1.41 (1.39 Cpuz)
QPI/VTT 1.55 (not high guys as Trident @ rated speed requires 1.53 )
PCIE 1.54
QPI PLL - 1.28
IOH Core 1.26
ICH I/O 1.62
ICH Core 1.26
DRAM:FSB Ration 6:1
Uncore x24 @4128
QPI x18 @3096
Ram x6 @1032
EIST,C1E,TURBO Active In fact all advanced settings except Virtualization.

Board Temps
NB 43c idle,. about 60c under extended full load.. Remember x58 chipset likes heat.. well likes could be debated but accpets much more than P55 for example.
MB 31c

Prolly should turn off TM but haven't had issues until 4.4 (must not be auto lowering V too much + heat not an issue so) Remember heat is the no 1 enemy

So yeah just looking to compare with like systems.. have looked high and low and no one 'appears' to have my set up.. Mostly interested in high air or HD-50 overclock around 4.3-4.5 voltage settigs on UD7 with high speed 2000 ram.

Thanks guys.. This is a great forum.. !!

p.s the most frustrating BSOD are 124@ high OC and 050 or 05D i think it is.. so any tips welcome there too..

I'm a systems Test manager for large Gov agency so revil in OC testing.. I mention this because i'd like to envourage everyone to post there FULL settings, not just oh this and that.. Looking at comprehensive analysis is to everyones benefit yeah.. I don't care if you copy my settings and then get higher than me, i'd just ask you to share your findings ..

Also happy to help anyone having issues, to be honest i see some mixed advice here, some just based on there experiences and not research, also appears most haven't acheived a high OC themsleves i.e over 4.2 so i'd be weary.. The best advice is generally from those who have made it to the top.. I'm not there yet, well i'm ambitious, but again hapy to help.

General tips.
+Most believe VTT 1.55 is high but it ain't..
+Forget intel spec if you wanna OC guys, it just a reality..
+In genreal let temps and stability be your measure rather than specs, although check first if concerned yeah..
+You don't need full water cooling unless you are aiming above 4.4-4.5 in general terms.. Unless you live in a v'warm climate, don't listen to the hype!
+Life of the CPU shouldn't be a major concern if your looking for OC over 4.2. Besides your pretty likely to get three or 4 years out of it and probably your MB or RAM will kick it first.

i.e E8400 with TRUE @ 4.5 for what almost three years now on air, no probs..

Oh last tip, you want good stable and high OC's..research x 3 and buy quality only!! No point having 3 outta 4 high qual and ***** mem or graphics.. i mean whats that.. Also if you can get above your rated then do it.. i.e Trident 2000 are great. If i limited to 1600-1800 ram i'd stress the system more.. sure may not use 2000 but can tighten timings so everyones a winner..

ok i'm exhausted, just hoping some one comes back and says hey tried a few things and now have a great OC.. Enjoy

Simple down and dirty 4.5GHz OC was easy for me to do. I'll post the BIOS settings tomorrow for it.

Nice MAC.. Looks pretty straight forward for an easy 4.5 dude.. nice work!!

Hey noticed your uncore is x20.. usually mem multi x2 is ideal, so in your case 12 x2 = 24 would be better no? or even 12 x2 +1 as you'd get a better throughpoint i'd have thought? or working up to it

Yeah though ok either way i'll admit i'm a little envious.. Again nice work MAC.. I'm still struggling to get over 4.4 without heat issues or instability.. perhaps i'll need to go water, or even better fork out for a 980x.. hmm what would the missus think .. Keep up the good work!

p.s. i reckon you could tighten your timings a bit also, although just how much power/performance does a man need

These 980-x CPUs aren't very stable with uncore speeds higher than 2666 MHz - it requires way too much VTT to try to get stable. Even 2800 MHz requires > 1.4 VTT, whereas 2666 is fine at 1.3v or so.

I'm guessing that is why his uncore is where it is.

They overclock really easily, otherwise, although I don't like running my CPU at high speeds / voltages for 24/7.

Mac: Under Advanced Voltage settings, if you set CPU to Normal (which sets a baseline Vcore of 1.225v), and then use dynamic voltage control to add to this baseline amount, it will let you use power-saving functions to have a lower idle vcore instead of running your vcore at the full load voltage all the time.

Sorry if you knew this already.
