    Default What settings for GA-EX58-UD5 and OCZ memory

    I just bought a Gibabyte GA-EX58 UD5 and 2000 mhz OCZ memory.

    Memory : 3 x 2GB

    Ch-B Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]
    Ch-C Address VRef. 0.750v [AUTO]


    Because this memory runs on 1.65v i only change this voltage and changed the Dram settings provided by manufacture.

    How can i run this memory at full speed of 2000 mhz without BSOD ?
    WHen i put the System Memory Multiplier at 12 i got a BSOD when i run Prime.
    What other setting need to be tweaked ?

    2000Mhz ram speed is very difficult, and you may not want to run it 24/7.

    You need high QPI/Vtt voltage and high Uncore speeds (2x +2 ram multi), and IOH Voltage will also need increased. You will also need to adjust your Bclk to something that allows you to choose a memory multi that = 2000Mhz, such as 167x12 or 200x10, ect.

    What overall CPU speed, or Bclk would you like to use, then I can advise back. See my signature for DDR3 reviews, in both you will see settings I used for 2000Mhz

    I had a look at the reviews and found 1900 mhz cas 9..

    My memory is 2000 mhz cas 10. I used that settings of the 1900 mhz and increased BCLK Frequency (MHz) to 190.

    System is now running at +- 4000 mhz.

    Temperature of CPU is increased to +- 55.
    CPU is cooled with a Scycte Kabuto.



    Maybe i should use better cooling paste then the one included.

    Case Antec performance one P183 :

    Standard 2 fans included. I can add extra fans (max 2) at the front of the case.

    I had no BSOd while runnning prime but temperature increase rapidly and system shutdown automaticly when to high. Memory runs now at 1900 in stead of 2000 mhz. Will try this setting for a while.

    So you have 55C idle temps? IF so, what were the load temps before the shutdown?

    If your system is shutting down then you either are using WAY to much volts, or your cooler is not properly seated. Or that cooler is terrible? But I don't see how it could be that bad though.

    Paste would only make a few degrees difference, I use TX-2 and MX-2 myself if you wondered.

    Check to be sure your cooler is fully installed, and properly tightened down

    On startup and running for 1 hour its 45C.
    CPU Fan is set to automatic and runs at 1180 RPM.

    When starting up a game i see a temperature increase between 45 - 50

    When i run prime for 10 -15 min temperature goes till 100 and system shutdown becauce of protection of CPU or BIOS setting at highest.

    When i restart then the temp stays between 55 - 60C for the rest of the evening. CPU Fan then runs at 1450 RPM.

    This cooler has the same cooling capacity as the Scythe Mugen 2 well now.

    Cooler ref : Scythe"KABUTO" 6Heat Pipes CPU Cooler

    Test : Samurai Helmet for CPU Overclocking: Scythe Kabuto Cooler Review - X-bit labs

    What is a normal temperature at 4000 mhz ? Can the fan RPM be higher or set in the BIOS ?

    Powersaving settings in BIOS are kept and also the VT (i use vmware).

    Ya, sounds like your cooler either sucks (Which I doubt it could that badly) or you do not have it fully or properly installed. No way should temps hit 100C with Prime95

    Normal temps for 4Ghz on air would be under load prime95 65+ to 75+, not much above 80C though. LinX or Intel Burn Test, maybe 80-90 on Air at high voltages

    Prime95 should not be able to push your temps like that, unless you were using 1.6+ Vcore, I think your cooler is not installed properly

    Yes you can set the fan in the BIOS to Voltage or Disabled and it would run 100%

    Sounds like at minimum you need to check that the HSF is seated correctly and there's trhe right amount of TIM on there. I've lost count of the number of people when asked if they put the right amount of thermal compound on they reply "Of course... I used the whole tube".

    You should not be getting above ~80c-85c on prime if the cooler is doing its job. Getting to TJMax and having it shut down the PC is awful.

    Your profile says that you're using [Auto] for Vcore. This is CPU suicide if you're OCing to 4GHz! set it manually. Likely it's using a shed load of voltage that you really don't need. If you want the fan RPM to be higher, personally I'd disable smart fan control. Have it running at 1900RPM all the time. By the looks of those temps you need it running that fast.

    For a D0 CPU running at 4GHz, I'd estimate 1.35-1.4V with LLC on should be plenty for most. Certainly not auto, that's dangerous.

    Default Re: What settings for GA-EX58-UD5 and OCZ memory

    I loaded the optimized profile and kept all default settings.
    Only for the ram i changed the voltage to 1.66V.

    Runnning prime for a long time and temp is now max 70 - 75 and system won't shutdown itself.

    When running with no overclock it only goes to 40 -45 when in use.

    What i found strange when previous settings where loaded and prime was running the FAN had a max of 1450 RPM.

    Also when i disable the automatic cpu fan speed and runs at full speed it show in everest a speed of 1450 RPM.

    Is there a limitation in the bios for it ? In the specs for this fan of the cooler can run at max 2500 RPM. Bios version F9K.

    Next i gonna replace the TIM with artic cooling paste to see if i got any differences in temperature before running back at 4000 mhz.

    leaving the VCore/VTT voltages at auto with a 4ghz oc is insane :O

    your IOH core probably needs to be raised, same with your uncore frequency, and to get best temps you need to find the stable lowest vtt voltage range.

    im no expert overclocker so im useless at going into lots of detail.
    but, it would be a good idea if you add what values are being set by having the bios on auto to your template, that way we can all see whats overvolting and undervolting.
