Evga X58 FTW3 HELP with BIOS setup!!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am new at Overclock.net. I have a problem with my NEW RIG that i just build for XMAS. OK my problem is that i can't make my ram to work at more than 1600Mhz and my CPU more than 3.2Ghz and i am frustrated. I know that i am doing something wrong but where??? lots of $$$$$ invested and i like to have it working like its ment to be. Need to work fast, if i need to return the RAM to get a different one i have 10 days left. Any help with the BIOS voltages & Clocks, Thanks

1. Get rid off the bold
2. Thermaltake is trash for water cooling period
3. Fill out your system specs
4. Use the cpu at stock settings then have the ram at 1800
5. Read on how things work when it comes to overclocking
6. Don't expect your question to be answered right away. Take some initiative and use the search function to see if it has been asked

what are the volts at now? Which Multiplier? Do you have throttling on? What about Turbo mode?

Follow Juggalo's advice, and also, format your original post more cleanly. It's very difficult to read a mass of text. For a start, each of your parts should be on a separate line.

EDIT: To add your specs, go to http://www.overclock.net/specs.php. For future reference, click "User CP" near the top, and click "Edit System" on the left panel.

Okay first of all calm down.

Checking your BIOS screenshots, set uncore frequency to twice (2x) or (2x+1) your memory frequency. So if your ram multiplier is 12, you want the uncore to be either 24 or 25.

I can't remember what the highest memory multiplier is with Bloomfield. If it is 12, set CPU Hose Frequency to 150.

You need to manually change MCH Strap to 1866, change CPu uncore frequency to 24 according that you are using 12x ram.
Change vdimm to 1.650v
