    Cool Help overclocking i7-930 on a GA-EX58-UD5

    Well I just jumped on the X58 band wagon LOL... here are spec the system specs

    I7-930 D0
    EX58-UD5 F12 bios.
    G.Skill Trident 6gb DDR3 2000 9-9-9-24 @1.6


    Right now the only thing I have done was update bios from F7 to F12 ( was having trouble installing windows) Loaded Optimized defaults and setup raid. Right now my ram is Running at 1066. So if we can get that running up to at least 1600 or better then start with a mild overclock till I get a grasp on things. All bios settings are set to auto right now.

    Let the fun begin

    what cooler do you have? also disabling floppy disk drive in bios helps with installing win7 re enable it later.....take a peak at my overclock settings in sig if you want to try those

    you should clock to 3.8ghz easy, its best to set your cpu/qpi and ram voltages manually as auto will overvolt them

    I tried your settings and they did not work for me gave me overclock failed. So I tried starting from scratch. Right now I'm sitting at 22x150 with HT off. Ill edit this post after I reboot and write down my settings. Do you know what the max safe voltages are for these cpus?

    Cheers mate. Yeah I saw your post I was gonna say hey but got distracted with this lol... how you liken it? Im love this so far. Its replacing my p45. I might get a another case and stuff and make it a server or something. I was a little shocked when I saw the VID on my chip 1.26875. At least all the temp sensors work on this cpu compared to my q9650

    Me thinks the i7-930 has a lot of potential when properly oc'ed.

    I want one of those Ultra Extreme 120's (all copper) Some day I'll get one when I build my own i7. BTW what fans are you using on it?

    you might need more cpu voltage with a 930 chip normally around 1.250000 for 4ghz so i would start with 1.20000v for 3.8ghz,keep turbo and multithreading enabled too you should be able to clock with those on,for qpi voltage i wouldnt go over 1.4000v you wont need anything that high round 1.3-1.360000 max and for cpu voltage 1.2-1.3200000v max with a D0 chip,as for ram voltage dont go any higher than 1.6v..hope this helps,also your cpu will only throttle when cpu voltage is on auto(not recommended) or on its normal setting
