    Default Lsdmeasap please: overclocking help

    Another high-maintenance hand-holding job sorry mate :)

    I've flashed to F9J and all went well, I'm ready to get back to my 4GHz overclock if you could look my current spec over please and advise?

    You would like to get bakc to your 4 ghz overclock, best start may be to use the settings you previously had set and work ur way up or down from there. My guess is
    191 X 21 BCLK gives you 4.011 Ghz , with an 8x mem multi you will be at 1528 mhz Ram clock, which is just below what they are spec'd at. I would not worry about that few mhz. Voltages and timings are on you. LSD can detail a bit more on this if he's around. Have fun !

    Thanks dbee

    I remember that we can only overclock the (was) frontside bus and tamper :) with the multiplier

    Which are the 191 X 21 BCLK settings please, are they shown in the shots?

    The first CPU Z shot u posted shows the stock 133 blck and the 12x multi , which means EIST and C1E are enabled. Clocking to 4ghz + , you should disable these in the BIOS under advanced CPU features. In the main MIT page in BIOS, you will see where to enable BCLK control and manually change the multiplier to 20x. Disabling EIST and C1E will increase stability at such a overclock and keep the BLCK multiplier at its needed 21x and not fluctuate.

    What CPU cooler are you using ?

    Is this your first time working with the X58 ? If so then i will get more into detail on everything for you . There used to be some guides on the LAtest overclocking programs etc. page, dont see em now tho... there is a Gigabyte specific guide to overclocking the X58.

    Hey WAZZZZAA ! Dude its rocking, Zero distortion as the onboard had and excellent presets . I love the interface. I actually have C1e disabled but do have a light faded "hiss" noise in the backround if the volume is 40 % . This is occasionally, as now i hear nothing. When it does do it , i just mute it . No big deal.

    Apologies in advance dbee I am probably going to sound awkward (what's this what's that?) sorry and I don't mean to sound like that, I know a bit about the CPU but only enough to be dangerous :)

    stock 133 blck and the 12x multi

    Where is the 133 bclk please? I see the 12x multiplier

    whats the xonar dx like?any sound interferance from c1e like with onboard sound?

    Totally silent wazza. No it's really quiet after the Audigy2. I had the pay-to-play drivers and the drivers from Daniel_K. It's the Asus Xonar DX2, PCIe x1 tiny slot. But then again I don't know what the C1e is sorry! <BLUSH>

    Is this your first time working with the X58 ? If so then i will get more into detail on everything for you . There used to be some guides on the LAtest overclocking programs etc. page, dont see em now tho... there is a Gigabyte specific guide to overclocking the X58.

    I've had all the good ones from Abit and Asus but my beloved Asus let me down (USB ports hopeless) so I tried Gigabyte again when upgrading last time

    I got it already overclocked from overclockers.co.uk dbee and never needed to overclock it so it's all fresh to me this one but I've overclocked everything always. It's got a good and weighty Zalman h/s bolted on and runs quite cool. I'm in electronics but the Dark Art of overclocking and motherboards, I ask the experts - rather than blow up a mobo :)

    Yep thanks mate I've got the pdfs and manuals and stuff from Gigabyte, but I remembered this forum from ages ago how people are really helpful. And you still are - thanks!

    Will crank it up tomorrow, fire extinguisher on standby :)

    Try this for 4Ghz >>

    I do need a link to your ram or the model # though! And just FYI, BIOS F9j is fulty and should be soon replaced. This fault will not affect you though because you are using 920 CPU. One of the issues may though, S3 is not working at certain overclocks so if you use this you will have to wait for the next beta to correct or go back to a older version.


    BSOD Error codes and what they mean:
    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
