Anyone able to help me via chat.. or pvt messages?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im having problems and some queustions i spent lots of time reading and understanding and messing with my previous pc's basic oc settings...

Maybe im reading things wrong but when i am reading about what settings affect what .. i get the voltage beeps the only clocking im really able to get is whatever the gigabyte easy tune will do... will that ruin settings i put in directly or will it override them???

im no genus, i can have the conversation just getting it from there to the bios and stable...

i know i should post settings and specs but.. thatll just field a bunch of questions. so confused. wanna cry, wifes making me do chores on my day off and i just wanna oc my box!

id be happy to even read a how to that relates to my board.. my biggest problems are tutorials use some bios that names it all different things.. bah i sound crazy and like a problem but im not

Not really up for private chat. I really feel that posting in a thread is the best way to get help because if one person tells you wrong another can come in and correct that person. I joined a club for my cpu and its helped a lot.

And i'm no expert with i7's or gigabyte.. but i can try and help!

Basically you need to enable Load Line Calibration. or LLC. I think your board may have different levels. Set it to the higher one.. This helps keep your cpu voltage more steady.

Now try and set your multiplier to something between 19-21/22 if you can go that far. The higher the easier it is to overclock using the FSB. But that also makes it harder to overclock RAM. so if you plan on overclocking the RAM i would use a lower multiplier.

The BCLK is like the previous FSB which controls many aspects of the computer. It affects CPU speed, QPI speed, RAM speed and a few others.

you will also have a multiplier for your RAM somewhere. they should be 6, 8, and 10. Or high medium and low. This will multiply the BCLK by the ram multiplier, so if you have a multiplier of 8 and a BCLK of 200 you would get a ram speed of 1600.

The same goes for the CPU Multiplier BTW.. If you set the BCLK to 200 and set the multiplier to 20 you would get 4000 Mhz or 4Ghz.

Now the more confusing and tricky part is getting your voltages right.
You have VTT/IMC, CPU, and RAM. those are the main three.

For starters you want to make sure that your VTT/IMC is never more than .05v different from your RAM voltage. So if you have 1.65v ram make sure your VTT/IMC is at least 1.05 or higher. 1.1v to be on the safe side. On some of the newer boards having it too low can damage the system.

If you plan on overclocking the RAM you would want to slowly up the RAM voltage as you try and overclock the RAM.. this process is very tricky and I haven't mastered it myself so I won't explain much further than that.

For CPU voltage you want to keep it as low as you can with it staying stable. So set it to probably around 1.15v or something and work the BCLK up until its unstable. When it becomes unstable add a step or two more voltage.

If adding CPU voltage seems not to be helping back off a little and add a notch of VTT/IMC voltage.

For stability testing I would recommend getting Prime95, and Intel Burn Test (IBT)
I would use IBT for getting a general idea of if its stable or not. Set it to MAX and run 10-20 runs. But be careful the CPU will get really hot.. One you've found a good point. Then run Prime95 for about 4-5 hours. I always run at least 10 hours but some people are power freaks and don't like that.. I would also use a program like RealTemp to monitor your temps. The top number will be the actual temperature and the bottom number is the distance from the TJ Max.. I would try and keep temps about 20C from the TJ Max..

Sorry for such a long post, but I hope this helps!
