Overclock Help plz

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
So I've recently finished building my new computer. And I'm looking to overclock her to 4.0 or greater if possible. From what I have read this is very possible. I have a top end air cooler, case is pretty cooled down and I just need some help with the settings. Can overclock to 4.0 but after about 2 minutes of prime it BSOD's and thats just no good. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like you need a little more cpu voltage/ qpi voltage. But without knowing what you are using it is hard to just guess. Give us a list of the settings you are using and we will be glad to help you. Also what are your temps for the cpu when it loads?

@ bounceback: Please fill out your specs. as no one here even knows what you have or even running for that matter. Click this link and do it here.

How are you getting to 4.0? What multi and bclk are you using> Are your voltages on auto? We need some more info....

Can you also post what settings you are using? Just need some settings to see what is going on.

Alright

bclk=191
core x = 21
vcore = 1.3
DRAM bus voltage = 1.65v

Thats pretty much everything i messed with. Maybe I'm missing a setting or something.

Are you leaving turbo on also? As it should be off. Try the cpu voltage @ 1.375v and the qpi voltage @ 1.35. Make sure the turbo is off if not that will raise the speeds over 4ghz when it loads.

What speeds are you trying to reach? Multiplier and bclk speeds are important. As i need to know what you are looking to get.

Yeah, I turned turbo off. And when I get home I'll try that out. Thanks. Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.
