Thread: Buyers tip: Good OC Motherboard?

    Yes I have GTLREF they were set to Normal and Auto. I think it was
    GTLREF 1 normal
    GTLREF 2 Auto

    Lsd: Rasing CPU voltage solved the problems up until now. How do I change Vtt then?

    Vtt, sorry for the confusing names. I forgot you had X48.

    You need to increase FSB Voltage on X48 to increase Vtt, try +0.1-0.2 FSB

    I got +0,2 and even tried +0,3 but it didn't help.

    Try the GTLREFs up and down 1-3 steps.

    Can you explain what GTLREF does so I'm not reandomly changing the refs?
    Should both go positive or negative at the same time?

    Probably negative, but it is a trial and error. GTLREF2 probably for quads only.
    Another setting you can experiment is CPU and MCH Clock Skews, again it is a trial and error.

    I tried -3% GTLREF and got bsod error 124 after a ferw minutes.
    Then I tried -6% and ran orthos for 33min then this error happened:

    FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4
    Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.
    Torture Test ran 33 minutes 13 seconds - 1 errors, 0 warnings.

    With what VTT? Did it make it any better?
    Try the clock skews as well, 50-150 each.

    I tried mixing with those settings, GTLREF1 and Clock Skew but no go.

    Now I've gone back to a lower stable setting, 440x9 which work flawlessly.

    One thing that could affect the OC is that when I Installed the h50 I had to remove the backplate from the "crazy cool heatsink" (or whetever its called) so the northbridge gets less than stock cooling.

    Anyway I'll use e8400 @ 3960Mhz until its even fried or outdated. Then move the h50 to a new system :)

    Thanks for all the help Lsd, Nickel and Chike!

    Not a bad overclock at all unless you have real need for a speed. Will carry you untill new generation/steppings come out and/or prices drop.

    You can attach a small 40mm fan to the NB or put a bigger one near it.
