Help OC 950 + Gigabyte x58 UD7 + Mushkin Ridgeback 998826 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Here is 4.2Ghz even with 1600Mhz memory, should be fine for you since you are already running 4Ghz. If temps are too much let me know, or just adjust to 190 Bclk for 4Ghz and 1520Mhz memory.

If you want to try 3.8Ghz use 165 Bclk and 23 CPU multi and 10 memory multi, that will put memory at 1650Mhz

I normally always run the latest BIOS, sometimes I get busy and don't update though I think F8c or F8g right now

You can save BIOS profiles to USB stick or hard drive, or right to the BIOS itself.

On the MAIN page of the BIOS press F11 for Save and F12 to load, when saving be sure you move the cursor down so you don't overwrite the first profile when you start saving your second and third, ect. And on that same Save page you can also choose HDD/USB if you want, but it's just as easy to save right to the BIOS itself. You can save 8 profiles.

Thanks - I love the above settings the best so far.

what would i need to do to run my ram at 2000mhz? is it difficult to do?

PS: By the way I love your reviews very in depth its because of your review i bought this Ram

Thanks once again for all your help.

Aweome to hear all is working nicely for you!

Ya, I would have suggested the above setup before but wasn't sure if you wanted to run the CPU that high or not. I keep mine at 4.2Ghz all the time.

2000Mhz memory is not ideal, for a short benching session it's possible, but with your CPU the volts needed are not really healthy for daily use.

If you want to try though and see what your CPU needs, at 200 Bclk use x10 memory multiplier and x20 uncore. Then set QPI/Vtt to 1.4-1.55+ until you find the sweet spot.

When you see 0x00000124 BSOD that means you still need more QPI/Vtt. Also it may help to raise your ram voltage and use loose memory timings of course.

Thanks for your comments on my review, I'm glad you liked it! Users comments like you posted are what makes doing a review enjoyable, it's nice to hear how much others benefit from my work. Thanks!

Hi lsdmeasap,

I need you help again mate, ive just started to run the ram @ 1780 mhz with below settings you help me with and get some BSOD and even error when running prime64.

Try these and see how you get along

It could be 177-185 Bclk issue, I always have problems with that range for some reason. What is your intended speeds for ram/cpu? Maybe you could try a different multi/bclk combo to get the same desired speeds.

Hi,

Thanks for your help, it seems to
Work but I still get the same error from prime64 as mentioned in previous post. What do I need to adjust to fix it?

Thanks one again

I think it is the Bclk hole I mentioned.

Try 4.2Ghz instead using 200x21

Hi,

won't that run my memory at higher speed i.e. 2000mhz at 200x21 bclk?, Im just trying to have the CPU over 4ghz at reliable fast memory at higher speed and you mentioned that 1780mhz was a good speed on these rams.

what would you advise on that at the moment the bclk is on 178x23

thanks.
