    Default Help with EX58-UD5 Overclock

    I was hoping i could get some advice on settings to help get me past a BCLK of 184 with my UD5 and i7 920 combo.

    I am currently at 3800Mhz using turbo, Prime overnight and Super PI stable with the settings listed below. I am watercooling and have max temps of about 58 degrees regardless of voltage (have tried 1.45 VCore)

    This DDR3 is my ram, along with a GTX 295 Video Card and Raid 0 setup on the Intel controllers.

    I have tried to push my BCLK with the memory multiplier at 6 and the uncore as low as possible without success. I am currently running a 181 BCLK for the sake of even numbers, but i would love to hit 4ghz or at least 3.9 if i can.

    Anyone?

    Tried increasing QPI PLL voltage and IOH Core voltage? Unless you have not as good a batch, the CPU shouldn't be limiting you to 183 BCLK at those Core and QPI/VTT voltages. Also try turning off multi-threading, I hear that helps. I like multi-threading though - depends on what you do on your comp...

    Oh yeah, try the 19x multiplier also. People are saying that many of the 920's work better at a non-20 multiplier.

    I have tried the 19X multiplier without luck. I can actually get away with a lower QPI/VTT voltage, but that is the lowest Vcore I can use at anything above 3700.

    I like having multithreading on too, and i dont suffer from high temps and have tried without it without luck anyway.

    I will have a look at bumping up / fixing PLL and IOH and see, thanks.

    Thankyou for the reply, will try when i get home.

    Ram is 6 gig. sorry missed that bit.

    K, good luck. Ya try 1.34-1.38 QPI and see if that helps. You may not need it at all, so set the other voltage suggestions first and then see if you feel you still need it.

    If you get BSOD's these are what I find the codes to represent in X58 >>>

    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage

    Thanks for the help (Lsdmeasap especially).

    No real luck though.

    I tried several combos of the voltages you suggested, started at the upper end and went down with no success. Runs SuperPI fine but BSOD's with Prime.

    I think the BSOD was 0X00000101 where you suggested not enough core voltage, but i dont want to go past 1.4 for 24/7 use and 1.45 did not help anyway.

    The plus was that by fixing my voltages rather than using auto, i have knocked a couple of degrees of load temps at 3821mhz

    Hmm, are you talking 1.4 24/7 use actual voltage shown in CPU-z or a BIOS setting of 1.4? What you set may be far less then what you get so just wanted to be sure which you meant.

    Are you using LLC?

    If you need more advice on things, post me your full settings you are using now that work and what you want to run and I will advise back

    This is rock solid, Linpack, Prime Super Pi stable. LLC is on, and i was referring to 1.4 being about my limit actual (as in what CPU-Z supports].

    With the settings you suggested, i tried the maximum and minimum voltages in every combo i could think of without luck.I set performance enhance to standard and tried 17x Uncore multi as well. I would be happy as if i could just get 190 BCLK stable with a 20 X Plus turbo on.
