    Default x58 ud5 overclocking advice?

    Hi where can I get info on someone with simular specs so I can overclock my computer to 3.66? Is there a database somewhere? Can anyone here help me?
    Thank you

    NO Database or anything

    You post your full specs and some kind soul here will try to advise you.

    You should have no trouble OC'ing to and well past 3.6GHz.

    I achieved that and it was very very stable (cpu at 1.3vtt) and im running slower ram then you (which should make it more difficult for me to achieve), so you should be at stock running your uncore at 3.2ghz neway (if yours are non xmp modules).

    What you do, is first setup everthing to run at proper stock rates, and set all your voltages (apart from the few you have to set) to Normal.
    No more auto setting, its not good when OC'ing.

    You should lock your pci-e bus to 100mhz.

    Once its all setup right, its just a matter of adjusting your bclk to around 160-166 and lowering your multiplier by a few values (to keep the ram at 1600) then all you do is testing at different cpu voltages to find the absolute lowest you can get it stable at that speed at.

    At least this is what I did when i oc'd my 920 on my ud5. others may have better advice, but I say make sure your setup is all manually configurated at stock speeds, test and once its definitly stable, save the profile and then its just a matter of adjusting several things.

    First, thank you for the reply. I am very new to overclocking so i might need alot of help. What do you mean when you say "you should be at stock running your uncore at 3.2ghz neway (if yours are non xmp modules)." My cpu stock is 2.66 i think.
    Thanks for your patients

    Hey

    What he means is that if your memory is rated at 1600 MHz you should run this by changing the BCLk to 160 and then the memory multiplier to 10x - which will give you your rated speed of 1600 Mhz. Just remember to change the Uncore to twice + 1 the 1600 Mhz RAM speed - next on the list above 3200.

    But are you running everything on default settings at the moment? Then we need to change timings on your RAM before we change Bclk.

    Please tell me if you changed anything and if so what was it in BIOS?

    Yes everything is default in terms of the cpu and ram. Please explain "change the Uncore to twice + 1 the 1600 Mhz RAM speed " Sorry I am new to overclocking. Thanks again for the reply guys

    All right I will try to help you and hopefully LSDmeasap will step in if needed. Let us see if we can manage to make you do 3.8 Ghz, that sure should not be a problem with that CPU cooler.

    Open BIOS and enable BCLK and set it to 180 - that will give you 3.6 GHz. Now we need to set DRAM timing selectable to manual and then change your timings to 8-8-8-24. Now change the memory multiplier to 8x - that will not give you the rated speed your memory is supposed to run at, but you will not be able to tell the difference in daily use and later on you can try to set the timings a little tighter to maybe 7-7-7 24. Or maybe even go BCLK 200 later on when you have tested everything and you are happy with your temperatures. You should not have trouble with BCLk 200 at all, but lets get you to 3.8 GHz first.

    Now that you have the right memory multiplier and timings, we need to change the Uncore frequenzy to double the speed of what your RAM are running. You will run 1440 MHz I think and now change the Uncore to at least 2880 and better yet the next higher number on the list. Uncore always needs to be at least twice the RAM speed in order to run stable.

    Now you change QPI to x36 and you want to change some voltages too. Now it does not say if you have the i7 920 D0 model or if its a C0 - but if you just build this system I would think its a D0, which is good news because they do not need the same amount of vcore voltage to run high BCLK´s as the C0 do.

    Let us try changing vcore to normal and then we change QPI/vtt to 1.36 and Dram voltage to 1.66. Now it is properly not needed for you to run this high QPI/vtt and DRAM voltage, but you can bring down the numbers later, when we know that your configuration is stable.

    Now with a BCLK of 180 and with turbo enabled raising the multiplier to 21 will give you 3.8 GHz. Now let us see if you can make this run.

    If you never overclocked a PC in your life - I strongly advice you to do a lot of reading on this subject and better yet have someone who has tried it before help you. Changing voltages could be fatal if you do not know what you are doing. Everybody needs a first time but you really should not change anything other than suggested from someone you think knows what he is talking about and always try to get a confirmation from another part to be sure that a change is all right and would not kill your PC.

    Let us say that you have build that PC for the first time and you made a mistake in seating the CPU cooler. Then you wanna try some overclocking and you raise the vcore voltage and suddenly temperatures are going way over what is considered safe - that could kill your CPU in no time.

    I really suggest you post some pictures of your current temperatures by using Realtemps or some other program that can show you the core temperatures. And please also post a picture of CPU-Z showing what you currently run.

    I always use Everest Ultima to find out what my temperature are - it is a fine program and its free for a trial period of 30 days I think it is. Here is a link - make sure you get the Ultima. CPU-Z you can find on the net.

    They mean the Uncore Multiplier should always be at least 2x the memory multiplier, or greater (2x +1, 2x +2, ect)

    Here try this for 3.36 you will need to find your own stable Vcore and QPI/Vtt though

    If you want higher CPU Speed let us know because you will need to use a different ram speed or 200 blck
