My ideal overclock is 4.5GHz. Ambient Temperature is about 72-74F, or 22-23C

Idle Temps and CPU-Z:


3D BIOS menu (quick change menu) - Frequency


3D BIOS menu (quick change menu) - Voltage


There are the more in-detail pages in M.I.T. menu, where it has detailed settings on stepping and turbo mode and individual core settings, everything is set to Auto. I can post those menus as well.

How does everything look guys?

Yeah I failed the Prime95 test with BSOD at 4.5 and 1.420 voltage although i passed Intel Burn Test.

Any way to lower my temps? Should I post other BIOS menus?

those are idle temps and not load temps that's why they look really good. anyway your ambient temp is 22c as stated so you idle temps should be around 25c, I would remount your cooler to be sure that is right.

My load temps peak at 77-78, forgot to mention that. And cooler seems to be fine, when I was on stock though it would idle around 27-30, which is why I'm asking.

Is 1.45 a lot of voltage for a 3930k at 4.5? I'd prefer it lower as well but it keeps crashing after about an hour of Prime when i do it lower. :/

I am not too sure on the voltage for the 3930 but most sandy's do [email protected] and most ivy'[email protected] 1.3 anyway if you had lower idle temps with the stock cooler with the same ambient temps than I am right that you need to remount and redo your thermal paster application. also don't forget that every chip need different voltages its just luck if you get a good overclock on low voltage. So good luck post back your results.

Damn, I don't wanna go higher than 1.4 but it looks like I have to! Unless someone can educate me on all the stuff that's set on auto like pll and llc and whatnot, I'm confused by the SBe guide here...

1.45v is way too much for 4.5 GHZ. I'm pretty sure you can get it to around 1.38v.

Put IMC at 1.125v and VTT at 1.125 v too

You can also use XMP profile for your ram. What kind of ram do you have?

There is also a TAB where you can play with the Load Line calibration and such...

Right? I thought it was too much for a 4.5!

Specs are in the sig, but I got 16GB [4x4] DDR3/1600MHz Quad Channel Memory Corsair Vengeances.

So I keep failing IBT at 1.4v and 4.5 GHz, but like I said, everything is set to auto. Don't know where those XMP profiles are but I'll take a look through my memory tabs in the BIOS. Will post screenshots and let me know what you think

You see it in your first screenshot, its written "XMP Profile" : Disabled. Set it at the right profile. (Your Corsair profile)

Vcore at 1.38v
IMC at 1.125v
VTT at 1.125v too.

i'm pretty sure it will help you a lot

Alrighty, so take a look at these screenies:







I hope to see some improvement? Let's see how it goes, will report back. Thanks again for all the help!

Failed the Standard IBT test at 4/10, no blue screen though just an unstable warning. Decided to run it again... and it passed... weird? On Very High though it failed on 2/10 burns... so what next?

At least my idle temps are down to mid to low 30s... but it's also because i lowered my voltage from 1.45 to 1.4... but still. Any of those "auto" that I should change?

Also use Custom Blend with prime 95 AVX 27.7 and set 90% of available memory for the test.

Few things: IMC won't increment by .005, only by .010, so it's either 1.120 or 1.130. And lowered the voltage to 1.38v like you said:



Crashed 3/10 burns on IBT, BSOD'ed on prime95 right away. Temps never went over 70C btw. Man oh man!

If you lower the Vcore, raise the IMC and VTT to around 1.125v and this is important.

Set the XMP profile. This is important, you have to set your memory at its own profile. You said 1600Mhz and how much voltage 1.5v, 1.65v??? Timings?

And you should find an option called Load Line calibration (LLC) and raise it a nutch. Power option at reguler or high.

I've been telling you this for an hour now.

What the heck? Dude... I've done everything you've said, I'm not stupid... I even set the xmp profile from none to Profile1. I set vtt and imc like you said... The only thing is that I can't set imc to exactly 1.125. Jesus I'm trying my best here and reading every word you're typing.

Also you never asked what memory voltage was and such! I didn't know you needed to know, that's why I'm asking in the first place. Also I read those guides and did what I could from them without being too overwhelmed, once again why I made a topic to begin with... Here's memory screenshot with default and profile 1.

Default:


Profile1:


I see you edited your post. VCore llc or CPU vtt llc? I have both.

Chill. We'll get through this.

What kind of BSODs do you get?

BSOD 0x101 - A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allowed time interval.

Also, I just went ahead and assumed you meant Vcore LLC and not CPU VTT LLc. Put it to High.

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
0x1A = Memory management error. It usually means a bad stick of Ram. Test with Memtest or whatever you prefer. Try raising your Ram voltage
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

BSOD Codes for SandyBridge x79

0x124 = add/remove vcore or QPI/VTT voltage (usually Vcore, once it was QPI/VTT)
0x101 = add more vcore
0x50 = RAM timings/Frequency add DDR3 voltage or add QPI/VTT
0x1E = add more vcore
0x3B = add more vcore
0xD1 = add QPI/VTT voltage
"0x9C = QPI/VTT most likely, but increasing vcore has helped in some instances"
0X109 = add DDR3 voltage
0x0A = add QPI/VTT voltage

Maybe you got a bad chip and it requires more Vcore. But I'm pretty sure it has something to do with LLC too. Under load you vcore drop too much?

EDIT:Yes put Vcore LLC to high, what are the other increment higher than High?

Image to explain the Vdrop
