Owterspace While MSI is popular now.. no idea why.. they used to be junk, as you are finding out. And before that they were even worse lol. I still wouldn’t buy anything MSI. Junk.

EDIT: i just went and looked up older runs, i found one in Jan 2019 on win10 where my performance is decent but still lower scored 20409 on the same cpus ram mobo and a vega 64. then when i ran it in march on a 1080ti i was down to 19480 cpu score...... so i wonder if this is right around the time the new windows revisions rolled out.
It is the spectre and meltdown patches disable them and run Firestrike again.

QPI is set it its minimum value at 4.8GT, CPU multiplier is 20, blck is 180. I'm unable to change the uncore ratio because its forced to auto and the option is greyed out. 1800mhz translate to a uncore of 3.6Ghz so its at a 1 to 1 ratio with the cpu clock.

You can see that memory ratio is unlocked and changing it does affect uncore but 3 is the smallest value I'm able to use there.

I tried searching my board with the website's search function but I couldn't turn up anyone else that commented about it.

I tried to get into wherever those links lead to and I just get popups and stuck on loading screens. I don't think those links are valid anymore.

I don't know what the heatsink is but its one from thermalright with nickel plated base and heatpipes, of which there are 6. I have two 120mm corsair fans zip tied to it because it didn't have any fan clips with it when I got it.

I used to have an i7 950 with an Asus p6x58d-e, and have since "upgraded" to an x5670 with an Asus p6x58d premium. I don't know the specifics of your motherboard, but I was able to follow miahallens 3 step over locking guide for both of my setups and with the i7 I got it to 4.0 GHz stable, and with the 5670 I've got it to 4.2 GHz stable. Both with an air cooler (hyper 212 Evo) and both could run 24/7. I hope this helps. If I were you I'd take the time to follow the guide, especially since this is older tech now we're getting closer to the end of lifespan, so these chips may not be able to take a beating as much as they could 9 years ago.

Good luck

The issue I'm having is that I can't adjust the uncore ratio. It changes when I adjust the memory ratio but that's part of the problem. Since these xeons aren't unlocked. adjusting the blck frequency changes everything so it makes it difficult to keep the dram frequency as close to 1333mhz as possible while keeping the uncore frequency reasonable. Can anyone help? I just want to get the X5650 upto 4Ghz to it runs smoother.
