[New Rig] i7 930 @ P6X58D-E - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Hi,

I'm basically running the same setup you are.

Now running at 4.4 HT on and stable.
Agree with couple postings as to possible (Heat sink) problems.

One thing my i930 was anything but flat and spent alot of time
as to lapping and getting it where I wanted it.
Don't think that would be your problem.

With just a little work was able to get mine with the then H50 push-pull
to 4.2.
Now on 360 water and 4.4 24/7.
Would check and reseat
Can help with setting for that board if needed.

My 4.2 and 4.4 setup.

We have almost the same setup, it would be great if you could post your bios settings, lowering to 3.6-3.8 so i can keep it could @ v8

memos en 1997 Mhz @ 9-9-9-28-1T(core volt was too low to reach 2000mhz, i increased it and could achive this)
cpu at 3317 Mhz


is QPI too high? RAM won't go more than 1866mhz @ 1.38 QPI, RAMS only reach 2000mhz if QPI set in auto (wich is 1.47500 as shown on the pic below)

This is 10 min EVEREST burn-in test, this is the coolest i could achieve
Is this still too high? Idle is 45-52 degrees.

Hi,

Need to research your Bios settings as to functions.

CPU voltage Control-Manual.
Ai Tuner- Manual
LLC-Enable
HT-On

Turn off all power saving features as will be noted in AI Tweaker tab
and Advanced tab.
Turbo-Speedstep-Spread Spectrum all-CIE-A20M-C-State-Disable
Extreme Phase Full Power Mode-Enable.
Set your ram timings and voltage to your ram specs.
Multi-21
CPU V-1.26-1.28
QPI Dram V- 1.28
Dram Bus V-1.64 as per ram specs.
BLCK-slowly raise a little at a time until desired clock.
May be able to drop some voltages also if stable. CPU & QPI.
More voltage, More heat.
As you raise your BLCK, watch your Memory speed as will raise.
Reset if gets unstable.
Other settings, leave alone for now.

These are just general and should get you started to 3.6-3.8.
(Watch Temps) as your on air and in my opinion, not great.

Based on what I gathered from your BIOS, looks like you're using a LOT of voltage to get to 3.3, which is likely causing your high temps. Plus you're also using an 18 multiplier, the sweet spot for the 930's is the 21 multiplier.

Can you fill out the rest of your system specs?

I have the same case and nearly identical set up as you, here's how I have my fans set up, the front and bottom ( 140mm ) are intakes, the top 2 and rear are exhaust ( 120mm ).



Try out these settings, and see if they work for you, enter them exactly as is. ( don't worry about your Mem speeds right now, you can tweak those later ) we're aiming for a higher overclock with lower voltage.

If these work for you, there are also other Low Voltage settings along with a ton of information for this board in this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/8378283-post2.html

Be sure to test for stability for at least 24 hours on prime95, but first a quicker stress test is to do a Linx test like the one in the screenshot below, which you can use for comparison purposes. If Linx gives you an error, use TurboV and up the voltage to the next highest setting ( 1.18750 ), and run the test again.



With more tweaking I was able to get to 4.1 stable, but that's only after I discovered that I lucked out with a good low voltage CPU.

well... i lowered the memory clock to 1666 (instead of 2000, since i've read that is not that much of advantage), so now i've can have lower voltage for CPU & RAM, wich ends with a MUCH lower CPU temp

even better, i set x21 for CPU, now i've got higher clock (3480 vs old 3317)

can anyone explain me this two pics i took with Everest RAM Benchmark?
Why in most cases I have better score with 1666 RAM clock than 2000 ? (not in memory, but on Lx cache)

1997 mhz

1665 mhz
