Hi SaSt,

I was just trolling the forum bored and came across your thread.

1. I would recommend that you NEVER run LinX as previously told in post if anything you should use LinX but only for 5-10 passes, then I use HCI memtest x6, also I use Memtest to make sure my ram is stable 1st before booting into windows to make sure RAM is not an issue.

2.

This guy knows what he is talking about and has helped 1000's if not many reach their overclock!

3. When overclocking always use ODD ratio as they seem to overclock better with less voltage. The best ratio I have found seem to be 25 (stock) and 27 and I'm running @4.563 on 1.440v. My idle temps are average at 26c and at full load using LinX 10 passes highest temps I get at 4.563 is 70c!!! I'm on water.

4. Best advice I can tell you is to NOT just input random bios templates settings from others but to study what others have done and take what you learn and proceed cautionly because there are alot of people that just spike up Voltages and pray for the best however there are MANY people here that actually can and do help.

5. Also when you run Memtest use test #5 and #7 as those are where many times an error will occur (per Lsdmeasap and he is right) instead of waiting HOURS going through all the other test. I run 50-10 passes of Memtest86 4.20v then.

6. When overclocking this is what I do.
- I increase Blck about 2-3 times till I can no longer boot into windows on stock vcore. (FYI...Make sure you input voltages manually becuase you don't want the system to over volt while overclocking so make sure you set each setting manually).
- Next i will up the vcore 1 time then continue step one till I reach my overclock. (make sure as well that you have set your memory to settings rated and voltage manually)
***NOTE*** For me this is the easiest way to get to the overclock I want but before you start you need to make not of your default volts by writing them down so you can set then up the correct one as needed. Below you is a list of BSOD errors that will help rule out what MIGHT be wrong shall you recieve one.

Code:
0x101 = increase vcore
0x124 = increase/decrease QPI/VTT first, if not increase/decrease vcore...have to test to see which one it is on i7 45nm, usually means too little VVT/QPI for the speed of Uncore
on i7 32nm SB, usually means too little vCore
0x0A = unstable RAM/IMC, increase QPI first, if that doesn't work increase vcore
0x1E = increase vcore
0x3B = increase vcore
0x3D = increase vcore
0xD1 = QPI/VTT, increase/decrease as necessary, can also be unstable Ram, raise Ram voltage
0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency or uncore multi unstable, increase RAM voltage or adjust QPI/VTT, or lower uncore if you're higher than 2x
0x109 = Not enough or too Much memory voltage
0x116 = Low IOH (NB) voltage, GPU issue (most common when running multi-GPU/overclocking GPU)
0x7E = Corrupted OS file, possibly from overclocking. Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r
Okay its now 6:21am and I gotta get few hours of sleep and will help out more if you need just PM me. Just becareful of the volts you are using and ALWAYS watch your TEMPS.

Hi Shauntx, thanks for your input but how does a stress test program kill your cpu? durely that's the point of it? To push your cpu to it's worst case scenario limit?

Anyways, I just tried 200x20 with a vcore 1.275 and QPI 1.25 and it gave me a BSOD with the error 0x101 so I upped the vcore to 1.28125 and LinX gave an error after 30 seconds, going off mymlams advice i'm going to up the vcore some more to 1.285 and see what happens, i'll report back soon.

SaSg have you tried raising your QPI/VTT Voltage I would start about 1.3-1.435+ depending on your CPU and uncore choice.

Leaving LinX on more than 5-10 test just over stresses the CPU too much. HTI Memtest I promise will find ANY error within the system if not faster! I use to run LinX till Lsdmeasap told me of the effects long term it could have on a cpu and sorry for $1,000 its not worth it plus I assure you HCI Memtest is alot easier on the system and will report a error just as fast. There are other tools you can use to stablize your system besides LinX but the most I was told to use was between 5-10 passes max just to test stabilty. HCI Memtest sometimes kicks my butt when I'm trying to figure out why my overclock passed LinX and Prime95 and Intel Burn but its worth it in the long run.

I tried to run HCI memtest and it said sommat about windows not letting me test all at once, and so to run individual programs for each stick, so I ran 3 for my 3 ram sticks and it crashed windows after 5 mins or so ( this was on stock )

Anyways I tried my next OC @ 200x20, vcore 1.28750, QPI 1.25 and it got through 20 passes of LinX, but failed instantly in Prime95, what's usually the cause of that?

Are you doing maximum stress on Linx? What test are you doing in Prime to crash instantly (Blend or Small FFT?) My settings are below.

I'm running my 980x at 200BCLK with a 23multi giving 4.6GHz.

Vcore = 1.3650 in BIOS with load line cal enabled.
My QPI/VTT is quite high at 1.42 but running 2000MHz DDR3 (x10 memory multi) @8-9-8-24 timings
PLL voltage @ 1.88V
NB voltage @ 1.26V
SB voltage @ 1.16V

My chip was made in october last year and seems to need similar voltages to the new 990X chips needs just 1.425V for 4.8GHz (200 x 24 multi)

Run small fft 1st then when you feel your system is stable then test blend (uses more ram)

What would you suggest I change next?

200x20, vcore 1.28750, QPI 1.25

passed Linx but failed Prime ( blend )
