    Default GA-EX58-UD3R + (I7 920) OVERCLOCK Help

    I've been reading other posts and saw Lsdmeasap instructions to help people with OC. Following his recommendation, these are my bios settings now (i wish to reach 4.0Ghz OC - 191x21 but with low voltages). I already tried to do this OC but, since my knowledge regarding voltages is limitted, i got really high temperatures and some instability.

    I'd really appreciate all the help i could get.

    i just got done overclocking my gigabyte ex58 ud5,i7 920 to 3.6 with the lowest temps i could get and they are really low

    on all core the highest number i saw was 67c
    temps stayed between 60c-66c most all the time

    vcore set to 1.25000v
    qpi set at 1.255v

    i think this is lower than a lot of people are getting

    im new to overclocking to but i can tell you how i got this far on mine if you think it will help you

    What cooler are you using? Your temps could be due to your cooler, or the use of Auto voltages.

    Looks to me like you need to start over, you started from fail safe settings which will have hidden settings that may be incorrect per your hardware

    Please load and apply optimized defaults and set ONLY your ram voltage then save/apply reboot back to the BIOS. You MUST reboot back to the BIOS before windows to set your Disk settings again, this is especially important if you are using RAID. IF you are using RAID please see here for my suggestions on how to apply optimized defaults with RAID >>>
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Once you have done all of that please enter all your settings above back into your BIOS, EXCEPT the CPU/MCH Clock Drive Voltages. Those are Fail safe amounts and will cause stability issues likely

    Once you are going again please post me also a screenshot of EasyTune running so I can see what you are getting for some of those Auto Voltages, and a screenshot of CPU Tweaker so I can see what some of those Memory Auto settings are giving you then I can advise back.

    Here are both of the programs mentioned above >>>

    Surely it'd help. Could you post your bios settings please?

    Could you also tell me what's your regular ambient temperature?

    I'll try to do that right now. Will post the answers in a few minutes.

    heres what i did to get there
    you will have to add higher voltages and higher bclk,and multiplyer to get to 4.0ghz.

    to get a 3.667 oc

    enabled (xmp) profile 1
    diabled turbo boost
    set performance inhance to standard
    took qpi link speed to 36x
    uncore frequency to x14
    and spd to 6.0 (this will let your memory run lower so you no your overclock is ok memory wont be a probleme causing instability issues

    set my bclk to 193
    multiplyerto 19

    set my memory volage to 6.0v
    set QPIv to 1.53500v
    set vcore to 1.40000v

    now i saved and checked it with prime95 for a complete 1st test of 8 threads

    it ran hot so shut down prime95
    shut down computer completly whent back into bios(deleate)
    start taking your QPI and VCORE voltages down a little at a time

    i took them to
    qpi 1.335v
    vcore 1.37500v
    save and exited got into window with no problem
    ran prime95 with coretemp running at same time
    temps 70c-77c
    still to hot

    start this proces over again
    next lowered to
    qpi 1.335
    vcore 1.325
    temps are getting better just keep doing this till it wont pass prime95 and then raise it to your last or second to last setting and run prime for 8 hours.

    then i set my memory divider ratio to 8.0 was at 6.0
    then set uncore frequency to 3.4ghz or 3400ghz as shows in bios

    while running prime95 run core temp to and keep an i on temps
    i dont like anything over 80c or above

    You're absolutly right about the bios failure. I had a bad fail after 1 OC config and had to clear CMOS. The settings were never the same in ET6 after that...

    Now i did all you told me to do and these are the printscreens you asked to take (i use a Zalman CNPS9900 cooler):










    1) What is the next step?

    2) I'd also like to know why some "Powr On" voltages (2 image) are higher than "Target" voltages?

    3) In Bios we have an option to set 32bits or 64bits system. I use windows vista 64 but my bios is set to 32bits. What would it change if i set it in bios to 64bit?

    Killer454,

    1) I'd also like to know what is your NorthBridge temperature after the OC (idle/full).

    2) What is the ambient temperature for you?

    3) What kind of cooler do you use?
