Gigabyte Gigabyte EX58 LGA1366, clicking after overclocking on startup

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
When I oc my gigabyte Gigabyte EX58 LGA1366, right on startup before post, I hear about 3-4 clicks, sometimes more. When set to defaults, only 1 click. But the system boots and seems to be stable.

What do the clicks mean? Not enough or too much voltage? Incorrect overclock settings? I'm just trying to get 4ghz out of my i7 950 and 240-Pin DDR3 Core i7 Memory Kit Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB

Help!

Thanks
David

I have a gigabyte 1366 board as well and its a normal thing with these boards. I am used to it now. Mine clicks 2-3 times and restarts 2-3 times before booting. It checks the overclock and boots if it passes a quick preliminary check (2-3 times) thus the clicking you hear. It can get annoying especially if you need the computer to boot quickly. I have even had it click 3 times and boot un-overclocked and had to go in the bios and save and restart for it to apply the settings. It is normal for these boards.

Also try leaving the voltages stock except for the ram (use manufacturers suggested voltage unless overclocking the ram then set it accordingly.) Try 200x20 or 210x20 or 220x20 depending on what you want. I have best luck with these settings. Most other people claim i7's tend to like an uneven multiplier like 19, 21 and 23. Try that also.

Good to hear, thanks. My first time OCing, trying to get 4ghz, was worried I was going to fry something!!

So my 950 only needs less than 1.25 volts? Its default is running like 1.18 or something really low
post #5 of 13
Lol.. its ok, I hope that helps. Be safe and move your oc's and voltages up slowly

Depending on your overclock actually.. Some need more some need less it depends on your specific cpu. I have always had luck on auto (Only with this Gigabyte board). Gigabyte boards seem to like to set the voltages automatically. Im used to eVGA and setting my voltages and vdroop etc manually. On auto for my 950 its set at 1.25 on my board.

I would manually set it to 1.25 if it seems to automatically keep the vcore low. Yours is the ex58 and it is an older make of 1366 boards. Mine is fairly recent and a 2nd revision and maybe different in certain aspects. 1.25 is a safe zone so to speak.. as in not too aggressive. Also don't worry about frying your stuff as long as you keep an eye on your temps and make sure they do not get out of hand you will be ok. The motherboard will not boot if it is set too high and depending on your settings will also throttle back the voltage and clock if it gets too hot.

Thank you so much!! Success!! Right now running a 1 hr stress test using occp - cpu test

I followed this guide, the quick 4ghz

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...920-930-a.html

My temps on air are hovering between 70-74 c in core 0 and 1

I presume I can lower the cpu vcore a little, right now it's 1.3 just to be safe.
If it passes I'll try 1.25 vcore. I'm sure I'll see lower temps after.

And eventually I do want to go to water cooling

Much appreciated.
