920 past 4ghz on a Gigabyte UD7

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
hey guys,
this is my first pos tin the overclocking section. I have been running 4ghz pretty easy for a while now and wasnted to try and hit 4.1-4.2 ghz. i am on water so my temps arent a concern.

I was testeing 4.1 ghz with prime 95 and recieved a BSOD with a 124 error code. from reading overclocking threads, this code means i need to increase my qpi voltage. i was at 1.175 volts and tried to bump it up one notch to 1.195volts. My mobo wont boot with anything past 1.175 volts. Ive seen people using over 1.35volts.

I have C3 state disabled, hyperthreading on.

My chip is a D0 revision.
im using a 205bclk an 20x multiplier. with ~1.3 volts vcore.
let me know if you need more info.
any ideas as to why upping the qpi just a smidgeon is preventing me from booting?

any help is greatly appreciated.

my old UD3R didn't like the QPI being touched either
Just try leaving it on auto (i did it and it worked lol)
It's a risk but meh, never hurt my board or CPU

Try using 191x21

Lets not leave it on auto.

The general rule for high overclocking is put that baby at 1.35 and away we go. Some will agree and others will disagree, but going even up to 1.45v under water is not that big of a deal.

Anyway, set it to 1.35 and that should erase your x124 BSOD.

Edit: Use either the 19x multi or 21x mutli.

use 1.27v..its in safe range..error 124 means its either asking for VTT voltage or its either there is too much VTT..given you mentioned that you are on 1.175v vtt then its asking for MORE..

am currently using 1.35v VTT for a DDR1600mhz setting..clocked at 4.2Ghz(200x21)

I would have thought you need a bit more Vcore than 1.3 to hit 4.2Ghz!?

Watch your other frequencies as you increase the BCLK to keep them in check, especially your memory frequency and QPI link frequencies and uncore frequencies.

Are you trying to adjust QPI PLL voltage to 1.195? If so that doesn't like to be moved. Leave it on auto. It is the QPI/VTT settings that needs increasing, you'll need around 1.4V for a 200BCLK.

For what?
1 fps gain?
Just not worth man, besides, it will dramatically descrease the cpu's life spam.

1.4v for 4.2ghz sounds a bit high. Granted every chip/motherboard is different but on my d0 920 I fooled around @ 4.2 and it only need a nudge or two from my current 1.27vcore.

i am changing the qpi/vtt voltage. the issue is that when i up it from 1.175 at all, it wont boot, my screen just stays blue and nothing ever shows up in the screen. after i reset it, i get a message saying boot failure dut to overclocking.

i dont know if there is a setting that im missing that will let me change the qpi/vtt without failing to boot.

what kind of speeds should i be looking to keep the uncore frequency and qpi frequencies at?

If you are using a BCLK of 200 you want to use the x36 QPI link multiplier You dpm't want it going higher than around 7.5GT/s. Uncore wants to be twice that of your memory, if you leave it on auto it should sort it out for you though.

ok, im all set with those settings then.

i just cant figure out why i cant change the qpi/vtt voltage at all without it getting pissed and not booting at all.
