    Default What should the uncore value be?

    AFAIK on x58 systems (and i thought all i7 systems) uncore needed to be twice that of memory multiplier... Mine is defaulting to 1.6x. If my Memory multiplier is 10, should the ucore not be 2.0x?

    Yes, it should be 2x the memory multiplier or above, yet another reason to not use Auto

    Well I have QPI Link speed at 32x. In the MB manual it says the Uncore Clock Raio is fixed ( greyed out, guess can not be manually changed) and that the uncore frequency is blck frequency x uncore clock ratio. So I guess you can no manually change the uncore clock ratio.

    So in your BIOS you can't enable Uncore settings? Sorry I have not used P55 yet

    I don't think so, only thing you can change is the QPI Clock Ratio.

    You should be able to set 12-30 is what I read, I'll look more into this and grab one of your BIOS and see what's up

    Thats one thing i actually noticed myself yesterday. I was using an 8x multi and when i went to change the uncore, noticed it was like 3333mhz, or 20x uncore when it should be 16-17x.

    P55 may not be the same as X58 when it comes to uncore, I have not read any guides myself yet, have you?

    Checking BIOS now, but I may not be able to look into it

    Looks to me like you should be able to set 12-30 from what I read, and by looking into your BIOS. Are you sure you don't have something disabled you need to enable?

    Maybe I can just see 12-30, but this is system managed based on something else?

    *Edit*

    Just found this
    For Core i7-800 it equals 18x, for Core i5-700 – 16x.
