Help with ASRock x58 Extreme & i7 920 D0 - Page 3

So right now my worry is what Temp1, Temp2 & Temp3 are.
I'll report my Linpack result when it's finished.

181x21 @1.3v passed 12h of Linpack. I took the voltage down a notch, now testing it on another 12h run. Two down gave me a BSOD after 35m, so if this passes 12h of Linpack, I'll go for 24h of P95. If it gets past that, I'm calling it 100% stable.

OCCT (ie, P95 Large FFT set to "High Priority") BSODd after ~20h. I upped the vCore back to 1.3v, and am calling it stable (whenever I can, I'll do a "infinite" test, but for now I can't, both for the sake of the PC -AS5 is still "setting"- and because I need it; if it passed 20h of P95 I'm sure adding those volts it'll be more that stable enough).
So now that the short term 3.8GHz target is covered, I'm ready to go for 4GHz (maybe I'll have to wait till winter...) or at least getting 200x19, so that my RAM can run at 1600.

it is probably gonna take a lot more voltage to get to 4ghz. if it takes 1.3 to get to 3.8

I thought so, that's why I'm thinking I might have to wait until winter comes...
Oh, and my north-bridge is pretty cool: I figured it out (actually, OS X -yes, I have my own copy, so no violation here- was able to read one of those sensors as "Northbridge"; it's the one that stays at 40C), so maybe upping the IOH as you had suggested would work, it's something worth looking into.

Hey adriangb,

I found this thread as I am working on my OC. I think this board is a dud. When you set your voltage in BIOS, what does CPU-z or HW Monitor or whatever show? I am getting over .1 drop shown in cpu-z and HW monitor.

Trying to get 3.78ghz stable, at 21x180. Voltage in bios is about 1.3v, and under load software is reporting 1.18.

maybe this was already answered, but, you guys do have vdrop off, right?

the gap under load between what cpuz and bios shows for voltage settings should not be that big. for me, i think it was .05v less in cpu-z iirc.

I have vdroop enabled right now. I thought I tried it disabled and it was worse, but I will try again.

EDIT:

It is grayed out...I can't disable it. Why is that?

EDIT:

Had to disable Intelligent Energy Saver, then I could disable vdroop.

Trying a test now.

EDIT:

It just instantly shuts off during a test. Bios set to 1.3125 (I think) and it almost looked like it was holding at 1.30, but then it just shut off.

I think my board just can't handle the load. I keep trying to get it to work though. Oh well.

Ughh, that's a horrible situation to be in, things not working like that.
This is (expensive) hardware were talking about, if I where you, I'd take the whole thing apart, and put it back together. This would eliminate the possibility of a badly mounted CPU/heatsink/mem/pci card. Also, check pins, connectors, etc for flaws.
What wattage PSU do you have? This could be the issue...
Also, try updating/reverting your BIOS.

vDroop=a drop in voltage when the CPU is loaded. Intel's thing, I don't understand it much, but I saw an explanation of it somewhere... about 4 pages long, lol.

P.S.: YES, I'm very paranoid about bad components. My BIOS acted like that once... right before a *$%* CoolMax PSU blew up my whole PC.
