Please help me...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, im sort of new on the overclock thing... i have tried to overcloack my cpu for about a month or so... but i can never get it right, i tried to follow many guides, but always results in an error, so i am begging u guys for help, i dont want to go too far, neither to small... this are my specs: intel i7 920, corsair H70, at idle: 0.976V 43-37 , at full load: 1.136V 59-54... asus p6t deluxe v1, corsair 600t, ram corsair xms3 6gb 1333, 1.50v, 9-9-9-24... i tried to follow a lot of guides as i was saying, but i cant even understand some of them, because the variety of motherboards they were talking about, i happened to find one with my same motherboard, i followed it, but i can get any of it...

here are the bios layout, and some changes i have done, but again, without any results... (this is for 3.36 mhz as the guide saids)



obviously i have change this to my ram specs, as well the ones that appears on the picture...






im really hoping u can help me out with this... to achieve a stable oc, im not asking for 4ghz... just a stable one, and if a stable one means 3.0 or even 2.8 ghz... that will be fine, i just dont want to be defeated...

P.D. im really sorry about my english and my grammar, it is not my native language, im from El Salvador, please comprehend that...

Hello!

First of all, don't try to overclock everything at once. I'm sure they mentioned that in one of the guides you've read. Return your RAM timings to stock and leave it underclocked as you have (for now). Normally we'd take the CPU multiplier out as well and test just maximum bclock but we're going to skip a step!

Second- take the CPU ratio setting off of Auto, and make it 21. You might be locked at 20- my 920 does 21. Use one of those two settings.

Third- look at your bclock setting and leave it at 160 for now. That will get you up to 3.36ghz. VERY gentle overclock. Look at your vcore voltage. Type it in as 1.15 or the nearest that it will get with that. If that doesn't boot (but it should) go back into your bios and hit the + key by your number pad on the right of your keyboard. That will bump it up in small increments.

Also, you could now type in your basic settings for uclock which will be 2x your memory frequency. If you click on it you will get a menu and one of your options will be 2564 or so. It should even have that option available. It could be left on auto but you might as well lock it in.

QPI / DRAM: can be set to 1.25-1.3 but that too could be left on auto for now.

Your QPI link data rate could also be adjusted. A normal way to calculate that is to multiply 160x36. That is 5760 and should be an available option... If not choose something close. If you choose to leave it on auto it would probably revert to that setting anyway.

Disable your speedstep and turbo modes. Also, disable TM function, C1E, Virtualization tech. For now, you won't need to disable spread spectrum or even need to enable load line calibration. Also no need at this point for differential amplitude. We're going to start slow.

Everything else at this rate can be left on auto... even RAM voltage- though most will suggest you give it at least 1.64.


Try that setup and let's see where you end up!


On a side note, download the program called LinX. We can use this to test your overclock stability. It is a very simple program, just download it, unpackage it and when you run it you can pretty much just press "start." There are other programs out there but I think this is the easiest and fastest at this point.

If you start it and do a 20 line run (default I think), there's a good chance if your computer will fail at this early juncture it will fail but won't give you a bsod. A lot of times that fails it's because there is not enough voltage to the vcore. Go into you bios and bump it up with the + sign by the number pad.

If you get a blue screen of death before then, I suspect you will get a 101 code. You will see it along with a bunch of other numbers in brackets. If you get screen 101, go into bios and just bump up your vcore by pressing the + key by the number pad. 101 signifies low vcore. 124 means inappropriate QPI voltage which probably won't be your problem.

Thanks Eno! Well I tried what u told me.. And I'm still not getting any boot at all, Im just getting "overcloacking failed" screens, when I changed the settings on the bios it shut down auto, then it load express gate without giving me the chance to choose rather enter os, bios setup or express gate itself, it just enter express gate auto, then I choose to enter os, and the screen is just death, I have to turn the pc off and on again just for the screen to display: oc failed... And the last time was booting, I guess, the screen went dark, then it ask me to enter setup to recover Bios settings, I'm becoming to think, that there's something wrong with my hardware, and that I will never achieve an oc on this rig...

Unless... There's something wrong with my bios, and I need to flash it... I recall someday when I was able to boot up with certain tweak, but was not stable at all for my temps with my old ****ty CPU cooler and my very bad airflow on my case, so I stop trying to do it, until I get a new case+CPU cooler, but somehow I remember I update my bios in the middle of that... I will tried to update the bios and try again, and I will tell u how that went...

Try clearing your cmos.

Grab your mobo manual if you're not sure on that (in fact mobo manuals can be useful for lots of things).

Your V-core is also tiny. To solve that you could either:

Boot into windows, load up CPU-Z and see what your core voltage is at stock and push it up a few notches.

Or

Set it at 1.25V which is a fairly solid starting block


And ahhh....

Your QPI link speed and Unclock frequency, set both of them to their lowest numerical value, you will find things much easier when you do.

Later in the overclock you will probably want to increase your unclock a little along with your RAM but get it booting stable first.

Once you have a stable clock at a low overclock just keep going into the bios and bumping up your bclk
