i7 950 first overclock

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 


Wohoo, BCLK and uncore stable at 200 BCLK, going to clock my memory and cpu tomorrow, is this an ok clock for being the first time and only clocking for about 2 hours you think? I know I probably should be able to put out more juice with my hardware but still pretty happy myself! 1.36 QPI voltage or so I think, plenty of room still for when I'm clocking memory

Um i don't know this program but it looks like you overclocked a cpu on powersaving settings 2ghz from your SS to it's stock speed of 3.06

I could be wrong not knowing this program, to me it just lookgs like your wasting power and thats it.

I would like to know how you got temps down below 30 though, 25 even?

Default multi for the i7-950 is 23, so 133 x 23 = 3.06GHz... Thats running at a 15x multi so its not overclocked

Set all voltages manully, but set them to their defaults. Disable Speed Step, CxE & EIST, disable Turbo mode.

Set multi to 23 and raise freq 10 at a time, 140 - 150 -160 and stress test in between....

Here, i'm using 1.2V on QPI (1600@1200mhz 6-6-6-16) and 1.2 on CPU voltage(3.8Ghz). Is your processor overclocked?? I can't see an overclock there...
anyway, i think 3.6 is reachable with this voltage.

With what his current voltages are he can most likely be running at 4GHZ 1.3 is just over the top for running an "overclock" to stock setting.

Turn off C1E and speedstep in Bios, then most likely youll see the diffrence.

I don't think it's classified as an overclock until your CPU frequency exceeds stock setting of 3.06 MHz. Maybe it's just my opinion.

I'll be looking forward to your actual overclock results.

Then its a good one...

But had you asked I coulda told you the i7 9x0 series would do 200 bclk

If you want to really test it will do 200 bclk at your voltages you should run a stress test longer that one hour. I suggest 8 - 12 hours of prime blend or OCCT Medium data so it stresses all the variants of the OC...

below is my latest step forward in my 950 OC'ing..

vcore - 1.29 bios (1.31v win load)
cpu vtt - +100mV (1.29v)
QPI PLL - 1.40
IOH VCore - 1.35 (NB Core)

And here the OC is for now, can still go to 200 BCLK and see how that goes, but for now I'll run some hours stability test at 4 GHz and see how that works out, IntelBurnTest was working fine with this as shown on pic, what you guys that know a bit more about it than me think?
