    Default Rampage 2 extreme i7 960 overclcok

    Hey all,

    Im having troubles over clocking my rig and would be grateful if anyone could help, i would like to get to 4ghz but i have been unsuccessful so far due to lack of knowledge on my behalf so i thought i had better ask for some help before i cook my new system ...

    I must confess ive been a gigabyte user and this is my first asus board...

    specs as follows:

    MB - Asus Rampage 2 Extreme
    CPU - Core I7 960
    RAM - CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 6gb Triple kit 2000mhz
    CPU Cooler - Air - Venom Voodoo
    VGA -XFX HD6970 XFIRE
    PSU - EZCool 1050w

    can you just tell me the max cpu multi for that chip? and what auto is using in the bios for cpu voltage? you want to run cpu at 4ghz and ram at 1600mhz or higher?

    Hi Wazza,

    Current core voltage is 0.946v, max multi is 25 and yes i would like to run CPU between 3.8 and 4ghz (pending on temps) and ram is capable of 2000mhz so would like to get the max from them ....

    you might need alot of qpi/vtt voltage to run them at 2000mhz,you would need t test,ideally 1800-1866mhz would be the best regarding voltage needed ect but its up to you,and you need to look in the bios for cpu voltage,so you can see the amount being used without any power states working

    for 4ghz you could use bclk 25x160 = 4ghz and ram multiplier of 12x160 = 1920 ram speed,you might be ok with cpu voltage on auto but depends on what it uses at stock clocks first in the bios,then you could tweak the voltage using voltage offset,but for now leave on auto and make a note of what it uses in windows when stressed 100% ect

    set dram bus voltage according to your ram,either 1.5v or 1.65v,it will be printed on the ram itself

    then set imc voltage to 1.38v to start with and test,all the other settings will be fine on auto,you can set your ram timings manually according to your ram


    EDIT it will tell you current cpu voltage being used and cpu temp ect in hardware monitor or system health in the bios

    tried your settings with cpu and qpi/dram volts on auto and all booted well but when i tried to run prime95 it instantly gave me a BSOD....

    BCCode: 124
    BCP1: 0000000000000000

    124 error is not enough qpi/vtt voltage,your mb is different to my asus one a (p6x58d-e) it says imc voltage for qpi/vtt,but on your board i think its labelled as qpi/dram core voltage,i would set that manually to 1.38v to start with

    try with cpu voltage control set to standard aswell

    EDIT just checked in my bios and yes its same on my mb,qpi/dram core voltage(asus) which is same as qpi/vtt or imc voltage on other boards

    cant get it to boot with those settings, interestingly enough i went back to "auto" as it booted with this before but now it wont, maybe a fluke when it booted before :S
