i7 950 oc and corsair 2000mhz ram problem

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello i am new to this site and to oc. I have read a lot of threads about oc but i would like to have an advise from people with more experience than me. I manage to oc my i7 950 from 3.06 to 4.01. The problem i have is about my ram (corsair CMX6GX3M3A2000C9) because there are 2000 mhz and i didnt manage to make them work with more than 1600mhz.I tried xmp
profile but still my pc is not able to boot.. If anyone know settings that will help me get this problem solved i would be appreciated..





thanks

How hot is your NB running on the Gene board? Not sure that you will want to try 2000mhz with that board. You will need to raise your Qpi voltage to 1.45v-1.55v for 2000mhz ram. I have the same ram and I run it at 1600mhz with 7-7-7-2-1t settings and it's faster then it set at 2000mhz 9-9-9-24.

My buddy blew the NB on that board. Be careful. It doesn't have that much room to breath.

Ok i see that you NB is at 64c just at idle. Watch that temp just as much as your Cpu temp. Thats already pretty warm. I would really recommend adding a fan somewhere to get those temps lower. He had it set to 90c for shutdown in the bios on the NB but after 10 mins of stress. BOOM. There it went, and when I checked the temp on the heat sink, it was 113c. Can't imagine what the chip was.

I have a R3E and a R3F. He was seeing similar temps of 65c at idle on his NB and said "It's always that warm and runs fine".. Well food came, we were eating for 10mins while the pc was under stress. Then I threw a scoop of chinese food across the room when I popped like a M80.

So you recommended to lower the voltage or change the NB with something else with fan ?
