post #3841 of 10702
I thought it was weird that running just the stock blend test; using somewhere around 2.5GB of my 8GB RAM, stability seemed better. After running a custom 1344 or 1792 using 7GB and usually I get the BSOD 124. No matter how high I put the VCore seemed like I would get a BSOD under load using more RAM. Ran a Memtest and got several errors which is good and bad I guess. Now I have to RMA the RAM but hopefully this will solve some of my stability issues.

Keep it up
Yeah, will do. Just starting sixth form college at the moment, so it'll most likely stay where it is until I'm more settled in there. We'll see.

I definitely want to try for 4.8GHz at some point, anyway.

For those that missed it, grab your sig and wear it proudly

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 120 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!!!!

I have another stable sandy in my laptop now even though I can't OC it much 8[. The magnificent 2630QM. Reading the last few pages makes me want to go back and tweak my OC after some recent changes lol.

LOL

384 pages so far, thread does have some valuable info however quite difficult to find because of the number of pages but I did add a section in the OP which is under important findings and tips. Users and myself that have found interesting things about sandy have been linked so it's much easier to view

Success!

1.36V, and 4.7GHz is stable with 20 minutes of 1344s and then 20 minutes of 1792s. And on that note, I'm going to bed.

Thanks for your help as usual. 4.8GHz tomorrow.
For me those tests were pretty unreliable/inconsistent from one test to the next. Try rebooting and running it again, lol... you might be disappointed. Also I noticed an interesting and certainly important phenomenon: I tend to pass them pretty often in the middle of a blend test even if I cannot pass them on their own. I just submitted an 18 hour blend test (which cycled through 1792 multiple times) but cannot pass 1792 alone more than like 1 in 3 or 4 tries........ so make of that what you will.

If your purpose is to approximate the voltage your chip needs for the blend (and therefore save time) I'd recommend instead to take the voltage data from the spreadsheet in the OP, average it for your desired clockspeed and start a bit below that. No matter what you do though if you really do want to find the absolute minimum voltage your chip needs to be 12 hours stable its gonna take time and trial and error. With how inconsistent 1344/1792 are on their own I tend to feel that blend is easier in the end.... run it overnight and use Event Viewer to see when Windows crashed - just make sure to note down when you started the test.

Now that being said I do personally think it can help you find better settings for vtt and pll. You can kinda see if its failing faster or not after running it like 5-10 times, then adjust them (preferably one at a time) and try again... but as always you have to pay close attention to when it fails. Even though its pretty random, in theory "better" settings should last longer on average if you take a sufficient number of trials. In my case I never did start passing consistently but I did see myself passing more and lasting longer. There are a lot of combinations to try, remember that.

I'm still super new to overclocking these beastly SB chips, but after about a week or so of playing with voltages, I think I've found my chip's sweet spot. I've been from 4.4 up to 5.0 and surprisingly have only run into 2 bsod's so far. That's probably due to the fact that I've never used offset before as I used to be an amd guy only. That is completely foreign to me and I'll likely never use it. 4.9 @ 1.392 got a little hot running intel burn for my taste, maxed at 72c. I of course had to try 5.0 and had zero trouble getting that stable at 1.43 but the temps were more than I could tolerate running intel burn again maxing out at about 80c. 4.7 seems to be an excellent fit, as Ive been priming for 3 hours with zero issues manually set to 1.35 in bios and maxing at 60c. There seems to be a large "wall" there and I would feel comfortable running 1.35v and 60c all day long. It's great to know I can get to 5.0 with zero issues and I feel could possibly go a bit higher. I really need to watercool. All of the above overclocks were prime tested 10hrs plus and intel burned as well because i like to be double sure. I want to get my 24/7 clock in order before I join the club so what do you guys think ? Are the voltages and temps I mentioned above way within range and I'm just being a sissy ? I really don't know and everyone has a different opinion. I'm sure I could get 4.9 much more in line with some further tweaking. Also, I have not yet tried to go lower on the 4.7 @ 1.35, this cpu may very well do that speed with less voltage. I simply don't know yet. is this common ? are these things really that epic ? I sure wish I would have switched over a LONG time ago.
