The ULTIMATE Sandy Bridge OC Guide + P67A-UD7 Performance Review - Page 51

post #501 of 713
just following up on this sleep issue. I never heard this until just now. shutting down C-states makes sense. but enabling pll overvoltage also screws up sleep? i wonder how. I'm manual fixed at 1.225v for 4.2ghz... but i can still sleep and whatnot.

Hey, Sin0822.

Your guide has bee very helpful to me so far, but I was wondering if you might know why I am having issues with my P67A-UD7-B3 on tightening timings for my RAM overclock.

The RAM I have is the same this guy has, and has successfully overclocked, here.

I tried what he managed to do in 1866MHz 7-9-7-24 at 1.5v, but that caused the system to not boot and load the default BIOS settings.

(Stock rated is 1600MHz 6-8-6-24 1T at 1.5V)

He also was able to run the RAM at 2133MHz with 7-10-8-27 1T at 1.65V. (I tried 2133MHz with it all on auto, and won't work.)

My BIOS version is F2, and I tried upping the VTT to 1.14V

I'm kinda clueless what is wrong at the moment... or if a new BIOS release could fix this?

hey man you definitely need to update your BIOS, try F3H, or even the latest BIOS that released today, it will be a beta.

Increase your ram voltage to 1.65v and then increase the qpi/vtt voltage to 1.15 or so, just to make sure voltage isn't in your way.

don't expect the same OCes, from what i have sen companies will release a really good kit, and then change the revision and put some **** memory in it. Corsair did this with their DDR3 2133mhz 9,10,9,27 T2 1.5v kit, a buddy got a rev A that was so good, and my rev B sucks.

In that section of XS you don't know if that is sponsored post or not, guys with RAm that are sponsored, direct RAm sponsorship = pre-tested modules. But heck he might just have better luck than you.

ID first update your BIOS, and then move forward, don't be scared to add voltage, that is PSC based memory its good to around 1.72v.

You make a very good point on the RAM, I never really thought about it like that (or knew for that matter).

How good is the F3H BIOS?

Last time I done BIOS flashes on my Core 2 Duo rig, I had a few bad ones that really caused me system issues until I came across a GOOD BIOS release.

I just want to check with other's experiences on what good BIOS version to flash to.

for the UD7 B3, F3H is the best, but one released last night that should be good two. Just use F3H.

In my experience with my B3 its the best,

Where can I obtain the F3H BIOS at? I looked on Gigabyte's site and all they have is "F3".

Hey Sin0822, love this informative guide, but i have a couple questions regarding some issues im having. I'm running a i7 2600k on a ud3h-b3 with 4 x 4 corsair vengeance 1600mhz, it came overclocked to 45x from cyberpower, but i assume they didnt test stability of course. I had to play with the vcore to get it stable at 46x with 1.420 vcore .. then last night all of the sudden i had a BSOD with the 50 code .. now im getting bsod's everytime i try to get into win7 with a 45-46x .. i tried upping the DRAM voltage and QLL like you said, but neither really seemed to make a change, although i only added about 10-20 on each. Any suggestions? I'm confused as why it would be stable for days at that vcore then just not want to work with it anymore.

update: found the setting to stop the loading windows bluescreens from autorebooting so i could read the error and it was 7B which is odd, so i reloaded the 30% (45x) oc saved setting in bios which uses the recommended by the bios vcore, and worked on first boot.. weird, have only benched it with hyperpi so far though, temps @ 66-68 .. gonna try out some games and see how it's going, i'll still maybe want to squeeze out a bit more from it if i can and keep it stable.

hello,

im running a 2600k @ 50x with a z68x-ud7-b3. one of the problems im having is getting my gskill ripjaws x 2133 8gb kit to run at rated 2133mhz. cpu-z reports 1333mhz 1:5 ratio, however, the timings are set as per the xmp profile ive set in the bios. i have tried all bioses listed on gigabyte site, using f8c now.

wondering whether i have to overclock the bclk or something to get windows to recognize 2133 which ive mingled with but seems to yield no rewards. post screen shows ram running at 2133 but cpu-z amongst others such as aida reports wrong figure!!!!! tried doing it manually by setting all the subtimings trfc etc etc and when i do that it won't stay stable with my 5ghz oc.
if i set 1866, cpuz gives 800 (1600mhz 9-10-8-27 1t)! if i set 2133, cpuz shows 666 with 9-11-9-28-2t. ive tried a variety of configs no joy.

here's my bios settings:

50x
pll overvolt on
no powersaving c states etc
prohot auto
xmp profile 1 on turbo enhance (seems to change it automatically)
spd auto (tried manual too no change)
everything else on auto.
vcore 1.405 in bios
level 10
bclk disabled


cheers
