    Default i7 Overclocking Issues with EX58-UD5

    Ok, so the problem Ive been having is with restarts. I discovered this problem while trying to watch a 1080p trailer for Ironman 2 (lol) with Apple Quicktime. The computer just "restarts" like I hit the restart button. The power does not shut off completely to it, it just reboots.

    So far I have passed:
    50 LinX passes (25k problem size = ~5GB of memory)
    14.5 hours Prime 95 SmallFTT
    12 hours Prime 95 Blend

    OCCT Large Data Set (Infinite/Normal Priority/Hyperthreading) is what kills my PC. Ive been slowly trying to find what is causing the random restart.

    The first time the computer rebooted within 4 hours. The next time "Core 3" failed after 80 min. After that, the computer ran another 7 hours and restarted. After bumping up the vtt a notch and messing with the cpu pll, ich core, ioh core and qpi pll it went 15 hours and restarted.

    Below is a picture of my voltages/settings.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    i can see straight away your way off on your qpi voltage,i need 1.3000 and thats at 3.8 when i clock to 4.3ghz i need 1.38000+ i would bump up qpi voltage to atleast 1.35000 and test from there

    Ive tried every qpi/vtt voltage from 1.135v to 1.415v

    None of these are stable. I can get the system to reboot itself by running SuperPi Mod 1.5 every...single...time

    What other approaches can I take? QPI/VTT voltage tweaking has taken me nowhere. The CPU is stable (as evident by prime95/linx tests...the qpi is where the system is failing).

    have you tried with latest bios f9m i think it is? put cpu clock skew back to default,load optimised defaults and re enter your overclock that helps sometimes,your settings look ok to me and the voltages,also try with 16 uncore or 18 uncore

    No dice with the newest BIOS (F9M)

    I tried x18 uncore, kept getting reboots with Prime95 Large FTT

    As I have read, problems with Large FTT can indicate results with memory (correct me if this is wrong).

    I bumped uncore down to 2x the memory multiplier (Uncore = x16), and Im running Large FTT again. hopefully this work /crosses fingers

    Any reason that it just didnt like 2x+1 uncore?

    Running uncore at 2x memory seems to eliminate the random reboots.

    System still freezes though with Prime 95 Large FFT
