Thread: Issues booting on x58-UD5 (OC)

    When you set default settings in BIOS you will get a 1066 MHz RAM speed and that is most likely what you have right now - despite the funny numbers. You should try setting the memory multiplier to x10 and again manually set the cas timings to 9-9-9-24.

    The Uncore frequenzy needs to be twice the memory speed +1, that is 1333 x 2 = 2666 and then you select the next higher number on the ladder.

    Then try again and please post a picture again using CPU-Tweaker

    EDIT: The tech guy was actually trying to help, but I guess he could have explained a bit more about on how to do it.

    I input the OC settings that LSD suggested, I also manually set the timings on the ram, and changed its multi to 8x. It is still at 1520 as you can see.



    Thanks for all of the great help / information.

    8x = 1520 correct

    So how do we bring er' back? at 6x it's 1140, still not 1333.

    Your temperature sure looks great. You will not have a problem overclocking more when needed I think.

    I think it would be best to wait for LSDmeasap and let him check your current RAM settings - he is the expert in here.

    But from what I can tell you should be using Uncore frequenzy +1 higher than what you are currently running. But wait for LSDmeasap to tell you what needs to be changed if anything.

    Edit: Why do you want to bring your RAM speed down? You will most likely not have problems running that speed. I was running 1640 MHz with Corairs 1333 MHz without any problems.

    What is the CPU overclock you want to be doing? You want CPU overclock but not RAM? That will not be a good idea. Why not get the best of both worlds?

    I would love to keep the RAM Overclocked, but LSD was suggesting that it could be leading to issues. I'd like to take my machine up to 4ghz if possible, but do not want to detract from the lifetime or condition of my components.

    What QPI/VTT and DRAM voltage did you use?

    This is the most important issue when overclocking your RAM. Everybody needs to test to see what setting they need, because this is different from every board and chip.

    But wait with changing anything and let LSDmeasap have a look at your current settings.

    EDIT: Overclocking with extreme voltage will likely shorten your components lifetime, but do you need it to run the next 10 years? As long as we keep the voltage within reason you will not see a shortend lifetime I think. Intel claims that CPU Vcore should be kept within 1.35 I think and you still have some left in the bank to do some more overcloking.

    I was under the impression that anything greater than 1.65V VDIMM would kill the CPU soon.. but that may be a misconception.

    The 0.5 difference is between QPI and memory voltage.

    EDIT: I may be wrong about that though.

    yes I understood the diffrence between QPI and VDIMM should be .5 but does it mean you can set 1.7 V VDIMM and keep QPI at 1.35V? (.35 diffrence).
    Or do you have to keep the diffrence at .5 and still use a max of 1.65V for VDIMM?
