Everything is stable but the Freq!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi.

I'm posting now in hope of that someone could help me solve my issue.

I'm trying to get stable 4ghz (which I thought I had before, but was proven wrong after an error after 4,5hours of Prime94).

With the following:
CPU Mult: x14
NB Mult: x10
FSB: 286
RAM Mult:x5.33 (1524mhz).

With the information above my PC restarts after a couple of rounds in IBT; which is quite annoying.

However, I can pass 60 rounds of IBT with the exact same specs as above, BUT with the CPU Mult: x10, which gives me 2860mhz on my CPU.

As mentioned above everything is stable (RAM and NB, because I pass 60 rounds of IBT) but the CPU isnt stable at that freq, my PC just reboots.

Does this mean that I cannot achieve 4GHZ? Because it's the CPU freq that's not letting me be stable (RAM and NB is stable).

Increasing the Vcore doesn't seem to help.

Any tips or tricks? Every advice I thank a lot for.

If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask!

I'd like to solve this before I bash my computer do death.

thanks in advance

the 870 chipset of yours is probably not capable to handle that high fsb. anyway, what ht-link speed are you running. keep it close to 2000mhz. lower cpu-nb multi to 9. now test and see what happens.

Others with this mobo seem to have achieved 4GHZ but I may be an unlucky one.

My HT-Link is set to auto, which should be 2GHZ I assume. However I can put it to 2GHZ Manually aswell.

Ok I'll try to lower the NB multi to 9 and have the CPU multi at 14, thats what you meant, right?

One strange thing to notice!

On 1.325Vcore I can sometimes pass IBT (either I pass or I get the unstable error, no reboots/BSoD). However, if I raise the Vcore above 1.375 (1.4v 1.425v 1.45v....) I start getting Reboots. What can be causing this? It's strange that more Vcore would mean less stability at this range, or?

If HT Link is set AUTO, that means 2860. Set it manually @ 2000

I know, but you must also remember that not all 1055ts can achieve a stable 4ghz. anyway, while setting vcore near 1.4v, try to keep LLC disabled in your bios. And always keep coretemp open while using ibt or p95. whenever the core temp reaches 70, stop the tests.

I did set it to 2ghz Manually, no difference.

Besides, CPUZ shows me HT-Link: 2ghz when I have it set to auto. So I guess it's the same thing.


Do anyone have any clue at all why my PC reboots? Can this be a faulty PSU or? Keep in mind it just Reboots and then everything is up again running.
No BSoD, Error or anything like that.

Would love to solve this.

If my 1055t can't hig 4ghz stable, I'll start to cry, literally.

Temps are no problems at all, I was max 47c CPUTemp.

I can't find anything in my BIOS that would refer to LLC. You got any idea?

What's bugging me a lot is that I can run Prime95 for 4,5hours on 1.325Vcore, but as soon as I raise my Vcore a bit it becomes unstable. I don't understand why and it's really bugging me. Can't my CPU handle the Volt given to it or is my PSU too weak?

Lol, dont worry m sure you will be able to reach stable 4ghz.
LLC is load line calibration which prevents vdroop. it should be there somewhere around other voltage settings.
vx550 should be able to handle your setup even with the cpu at 4ghz.

I hope so, thanks for bringing hope back to me.

I cannot find anyhing that would be associated with LLC. I conctaced Gigabyte (my mobo manufacturer) and asked about LLC. He replied me with the following:
Quote:
Hi Nikko,

LLC is a Intel feature. AMD motherboards dont offer this. The similar feature is AMD Cool & Quiet, and can be compared to the Intels C-states and C1E.

I guess your problem is anywhere else, maybe incompatible memory or a unstabile PSU.

Best regards
GIGABYTE-team Scandinavia

I was like "lul wut?" when I read it. Their customer support literally meant that Cool n Quiet is the same thing as LLC. I lol'd.

Anyways. Do you think Vdroop can cause the reboot of the PC or what?


thanks

Your board doesn't have LLC. ASUS boards use to have it.
If you got hardware error(prime95), thats RAM or CPU/NB related. Try adjust your RAM and/or CPU/NB voltage
Gigabyte Scandinavia should fire that guy
