Yeah but is it the mobo or the chip? Is the chip just hungry for some reason after 3.8 or is the board just wonky?

So,
I just thought to ask this, because I haven't seen it mentioned yet:

Does it matter if my ram is running in dual channel mode?

Also, I'm wondering if my need for unusually high voltage could be a result of a lack of contact (or proper pressure) between the pins of my socket, and the pads of my cpu...(I haven't checked yet)

Any thoughts?

Here's a question as well:

My base clock determines my ram frequency, along with my ram multiplier, correct?

My multiplier options are 6, 8, and 10.

So, if my base clock is 200, my lowest possible ram frequency will be 1200.
Is this still what you'd consider having my ram clocked down as far as it will go, for the purpose of isolating my cpu?
Or is there some other way to set it lower?

I would say the board is just "wonky" mine will reach 3.8 on stock voltage.
I think either there is a bios setting that is on that we are unaware of or your mobo just isn't that good.

I don't think you have an option to make it not dual channel although i would highly recommend leaving it in dual channel as it gives more throughput.

I would say pressure is a possibility. I would try resetting your cpu on the mobo. and then see if that helps. BCLK doesn't determine ram multiplier.
But yes typically you would set the ram multiplier to 6 having it at 1200. It doesn't have to be as far as it can go but it shouldn't be overclocked and should probably be lower than stock speeds for cpu overclock testing.

You can both loosen your RAM timings and lower the speed its running at. If your ram is running at 1600 with 7-7-7-25 timings try 1400 or less with 8-8-8-27 timings.

After a few days of messing I think i've decided to down clock just a little in order to achieve better RAM timings. right now its testing at 4.017 instead of 4.166 and then i'm going to see if i can get my timings down to 6-7-6-22 or something close to that. I want to squeeze every bit of performance from it that i can.

I also plan on getting an SSD sometime after christmas!

@potatoechip...what are your max/med/low temp???

This is what i call fully stable: 50-100x ibt, 12-24hrs prime95, air cool under 70C would be ideal but i guess under 75C should be max...any higher temp = go liquid cooling imo..

@ tjbridge

I would suggest you put on these requirements:

1. Temp should be in range with XXGhz etc.
2. 50x-100x IBT
3. 12-24hrs of Prime95
4. ScreenShot!!!

I flashed an older version of bios but it didn't help. The thing is though other people with the GD80 get 4.0 at 1.28-1.35.

I will see if I can even return the board to amazon, I think its like a 85% return or something.

Honestly I just have this thing for gaming so 3.8-4.0 no difference. I think I can actually mange 3.9 I had a 3.9 OC going just didn't keep up with it.

If I get sick of it I will sell it in April and get a new one or look to get one off of the market place here. It is disappointing but what can you do. I don't feel like playing musical mobo's.

Zippy It seems unlikely at 191 but you might be running into a bit of a baseclock hole. At the point where you are at I'd try a few things.

First I'd walk up the baseclock one MHz at a time from 181. Doing that does it feel like you are hitting a wall or are you having to increase the vcore gradually as you go up? I hit a baseclock hole at 204. 203 was easy enough but 204 just wasn't happening. Finally it took a pretty good punch of VTT to get over it.

2nd if there is a hole there you are already getting over it by jumping to 1.39v. Maybe in your case the VTT isn't the issue and you are just needing the vcore to dig out of it. So now that your on the other side what can you do with that 1.39v. Try walking the baseclock up. Haven't heard you holler about temps at 1.39v so it might be worth seeing how far that will get you. Systems tend to have sweet spots. For my i5 it's 4.01, for my i7 3.8 maybe for you it's 4.4

3rd. Try ditching 21. Maybe your chip likes 22 or 20 or 19 better. You won't know until you try.
