Takes long time if you really want to make the RAM OC stable at higher clock.
I see. Well, it seems pretty stable at 11-11-11-29-1N 1600mhz - that's taking the easy way of letting AUTO timings do the job at 1600mhz. I guess the real world benefits of those settings compared to 8-8-8-24-2N are negligible, so I COULD just call it a day... But I'm not sure I will

I know the ram have run optimally on a P55 platform @ 1.5v, so basically I don't think they've gone bad all of a sudden. The only thing I can think of to support 8-8-8-24-2N on my new system is upping the vccio, but my chip didn't respond very well to that when I tried 1.1v. Dunno if I should give it some more. After all, Intel's specs say +/- 5% only. Thoughts?

****Max Safe Voltage and Temps****


Before I go into this, I just want to say that this is my OWN opinion and take it as you will.

No one is absolutely certain of what the safe vcore is for the sandybridge chips. What I can tell you is that many say the max safe vcore for these chips are 1.3 region, however, intel states that the max 'VID' is 1.52 and many say that around 1.4 if your on air and 1.45 should be the max if your running water cooling. Personally I will not go above 1.5v for 24/7 with these chip but that is totally upto you. The main thing to understand is that 'YOU' have to come up with the conclusion of what the max is. That way no one is blamed if the chip degrades (none reported so far, even with so called 'high 1.4+ vcore')

Those that have killed or degraded their cpu's have done so through either their own fault, by running sucide runs with crazy voltages and by not having substantial cooling for their overclock and voltage or for the reason other reasons like their mobo or PSU causing shorting and BIOS bugs.

Please remember that not all chips are the same, some can do high overclocks with low voltage some cannot as you can see in this this thread and many others.

Regarding temps, CPU throttles at 95c, some say keeping it below 85c is good, some say keeping it below 80 is better, other's say below 75c is really good and there are quite a few that say 70c should be the max. Which ever one your comfortable with and if you have substantial cooling, YOU DECIDE YOUR MAX, just remember it throttles at 95c. If for example you hit 85c in stress testing then in everday usage it shouldn't be higher than 75c which I think is fine, I personally like to keep mine below 70c

This will conclude any max safe voltage discussions, if you have a question's about it create another thread or PM me.

Added, welcome to the club Nice overclock


Grab your sig and wear it proudly

Code:

[CENTER][SIZE="3"][B][THREAD=968053][FONT="Book Antiqua"][:clock:] The Sandy STABLE Club [:clock:][/FONT][/THREAD][/B][/SIZE][/CENTER] 



BIOS TEMPLATES

I have created a sheet for BIOS templates, it could be a reference point to other's including oneself and a quick 'copy and paste' whenever required in other threads/posts etc.

Those that have posted their stable systems please spare a few minutes of your time to do this. One more thing, these are the ones im after:
  • Main BIOS page (The advanced settings main page)

  • Full AI tweaker Page including DRAM Timing control

  • CPU Configuration Page



Spreadsheet contains voltage info, temperature info, cooling info, BIOS templates and seperate sheets hava been created for all of those, including one which filters the i5 and i7. This should be helpful to SB users and those looking to get SB, it also helps provide real world data regarding how the coolers are performing, what temps people are getting with the overclocks and at what kind of votlages, I think that it s a great addition to OCN and one that SB and non SB users can benefit from.


Thanks to all that contributed to this thread and spreadsheet, would not have been possible without you guys


We currently have just over 110 members and we are looking for MORE


SO GET POSTING GUYS BUT REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE RULES!!!!


And again thanks to all those participated, we have some excellent club members here!!!!



There is two parts to this thread, one for stability and the other for benchmarking. Please don't get the two mixed up!! The benchmarking is just for fun, a bit of healthy competition amongst sandybridge users!! The main purposes of this thread has not and will not be derailed and will continue as it is, primarily focusing on stability. The benchmarking section is open to EVERYONE with the 2500k/2600k, not just the stable people

Benchmarking via SiSoftware Sandra

Make sure you run each of the processor benchmarks, Processor Arithmetic, Processor Multi-Media, Cryptography and Multi-Core Efficiency, .

With all four benchmarks you will add up the 'points' and have a total for each, then all four will be added to give you a TOTAL score.

ONE SIMPLE RULE

Make sure two instances of CPU-Z is open, one for RAM and the other for core speed and make sure you have notepad open with your OCN name!!!


All SiSoftware Sandra benching must follow this
CLICK HERE

If it's not like the above, then it won't be accepted, simple as!!

**System may be unresponsive during the benchmarks, be patient and it will finish.

Cheers

Feels great when all the hard work pays off! Now I can get started on folding/torrenting/watching movies etc again with my new tried and tested 24/7 stable oc

I think I got my RAM issue nailed as well btw. It seems the CPU likes running the ram at 8-9-8-24-2N @ 1600mhz, and so far the 15min 1344, 1792 and 640 FFTs have been without errors. I haven't done a full blend to test the ram yet, but Im fairly certain it'll go over well as 8-8-8-24-2N gets rounding errors quickly in those FFTs.

Thanks for starting and maintaining this thread btw; I've learned a ton and had a good time

Next stop: that 4.9 I've been playing around with a bit lately...

This afternoon i learned something about ram timings with Sandy Bridge cpus.I was having a high instance of instability until i learned this..and i feel i must share this discovery
Do This:
1)find out the timings at the set speeds for whatever RAM you have

2)set the RAM speed in your bios configuration to the nearest speed above desired frequency.at this time set your timings,too


3) lower the bclock to meet desired frequency supported by your RAM


4) raise the multi back up to desired frequency-DONE!

with this method one can obtain the correct frequency for their individual RAM ..enjoy
