New Computer setup overclocked @ 3.6 GHZ help!! - Page 3

post #21 of 64
what is your DRAM voltage set at? it usually defaults to 1.5 v. Try bumping it up to about 1.6 V (no higher than 1.65) and that should help you boot when your ram speed is slightly above 1600 Mhz. To run a higher CPU overclock drop your ram down(where it says dram frequency) one notch (probably to 1333), leave your cpu multi at 25 then slowly pump up your bclock. a core voltage of 1.3 to 1.35 should allow you to boot an i7 970 up to about 4.2 Ghz

now you most likely wont be able to get a ram speed any higher than 1650

also another thing I would start with is setting your QPI to the lowest setting (not the Slow one)

SWEET!! ok im 4214.7 @ 1.360 V lowered dram frequency next notch down to 1266 MHz .. was no 1333 . i turned bclk up to 168 multi at 25. 4200 MHz @ 1.360 V. i left voltage on auto adjust and my QPI LINK says 3033.1

under cache
in my CPU-Z it says.

level 3 12 MBytes everybody elses cpu-z says 12882 Mbytes. why does mine say only 12? here is pic.

ok it workeed i lower my dram freq: to 1322 MHz and i got bclk at 168 and multi x25 and its 4200 MHz . volt is 1.360V ok .what if i lower multi to 24 and bump up bclk to 175, that will make my freq 1403 from 1346 MHz and make me 4200 mhz but at 24 multi.. what will happen if i lower multi and raise bclk. will it require more voltage over 1.365? im scared to go any higher than 168x25 @ 4200 MHz = 1.360 V . my dram freqeuncy is set a 1322 now. let me know what u think.. my temps get up to 155F. now on full load after 15 min.

did you bump your DRAM voltage (not QPI/DRAM) from Auto to ~1.64? that should allow you to run slightly over 1600 Mhz.

you could go 183x 23, should put your RAM at 1464.
I did see that you are currently running 12 Gb so you may need to bump the QPI/DRAM voltage to ~1.35, that may help it boot 1600+ mhz.

have you stress tested it at 4.3? if not I would do that and get a stable OC with the lowest voltage.should be able to do a little less than what you have, but possibly not, just depends on the chip.

once you get a stable OC then save it in the BIOS, then you can try to go higher but still have a baseline to go back to
