    Default E8500/HD5830 OCCT Problems?

    I'm back with another system to keep you guys busy! I put the E6750 CPU back in the abit IP35 Pro MB with the 4 GB of Corsair ram and will let it run at a reasonable OC. I went and bought the E8500 for the EP45-UD3P MB like someone suggested and thought I'd be happy. But... I had to have a new Video Card so I purchased the ATI/AMD HD 5830 card and installed the Catalyst 10.3 drivers. I had to install the latest version of ET6 since the one I had did not like the new video card drivers. It also appears the OCCT does not like the new video card since it crashes very quickly with core failures and/or the BSOD. The attached BIOS settings are pretty much the default settings since I wanted to make sure I had a good starting point. I was a little concerned that the Core Temps varied by as much as 7C but I guess that is the nature of the E8500 based on the various internet threads?

    The first issue I would like some help with is - am I the only guy that is having problems with OCCT and a HD 5830 video card? I ran IBT for 10 passed with no problems and I let Prime 95 go for 4 hours with no issues.

    Cancel that request. Apparently, OCCT gets caught up in the stuff left behind when you uninstall the Nvida drivers. I ran CCleaner and deleted all the dead entries left over in the registry and OCCT now runs for 60 minutes with no problems. So the only issue pending is the 7 or 8 degree C difference between Core 0 and Core 1 reported by OCCT although the maximum temperature reported for Core 0 by OCCT was only 41C.

    So all good now then?

    If so great to hear!! Post back anytime if you need help with anything

    You can likely use tRD 6-7, and less MCH Core voltage as well, just FYI in regards to your settings

    Here we go. Is the Core0, Core1 temperature variation normal? The E6750 and the Q9550 Core temperatures were always pretty close. Why can I lower the tRD to 6-7 with the E8500 and I could/did not with the E6750 and the Q9550 OC's? Same memory and motherboard. Also, make it easy on me, if I want to do a modest OC of the E8500 (400 X 9.5 = 3.8) how much more Vcore, if any, should I give it? Do the same rules apply for the VTT as the E6750 and Q9550?

    Yes, core temp variations are normal, sometimes closer together (3-5) and other times further apart (3-12). It all depends on your heatsink mounting, how flat your heatsink and or CPU IHS is, and what the cores are doing since they are not always working on the same things.

    You may have had stuck cores on the 6750/9550, or flatter IHS on the CPU's, or a better mount of the heatsink. Many variables can cause this, nothing to much to worry about though.

    I say you can lower tRD because you can at that FSB, and it will help your performance a lot!

    I would say maybe 1.26-1.38 for 3.8Ghz, all depends on your CPU, and what other voltages such as PLL and Vtt you use.

    Vtt only needs to be kept under vcore, and for 8500 try to keep it under 1.38/1.4, you really shouldn't need more than 1.34 or so for 400 FSB if that.

    This thing is pretty amazing. It is running "stable" at 400FSB or 3.8MHz. I did change the tRD from 8 to 7 and at least 3dMark Vantage did not run any faster but I guess that is more biased to the video performance. However, when I try to jump to FSB 422 or 4.0GHz by increasing the Vcore 2 notches and increasing the VTT one notch bad things happen. W7 boots and after a few minutes gives me the BSOD. Change the tRD back to 8? Also, I tried changing the memory multiplier to 2.66D with a tRD of 9 and all of the other settings the same as posted below and OCCT report a Core1 error after only 10 minutes! Any suggestions on why it don't like 2.66D @ FSB 400? I was ready to be happy at 3.8MHz and wanted to run the memory at rated 1066 speed.

    Give me the settings you are trying to use at 422 FSB and I can advise back

    tRD most likely will need to be 9 at 422 FSB using D strap multi's, this might be your only problem

    Default Re: E8500/HD5830 OCCT Problems?

    I went back to the go old reliable 2.40B strap and have this thing running at 4.0GHz with the attached settings. I have not put ProfJim's memory timings in yet but everything else seems ok? For some reason when I try the 2.66D setting with a FSB of 400 and a tRD of 9 it don't like it.

    Since it got to 4GHz relatively easily (Vcore of <1.35V and a max temperature of 52C) how much more do these things have have without using a voltage that is too high for 24-7 usage?

    Some memory just does not play well with the D strap, same applies with B strap some do not like it either.

    It could also be that you are using too much MCH Voltage, not enough memory voltage or Vtt voltage, and or you are also not setting driving strength profiles. There is much to play with if you want to use 2.66D, if you do let me know because I am fairly sure your Mushkin's will do fine on the D strap

    Lsdmeasap,
    This thing is running stable at 4GHz with the 2.40B strap. I'm almost happy for now. I will try to get it to run the memory at 1066+ but I'll save that for another day.

    ProfJim,
    I am using almost the exact same settings you got me to on the Q9550 and the E6750 systems. The only differences are: the E8500 is running on the latest BIOS FE and the Q9550 is still on the FD version, the CPU Reference, MCH Reference, MCH/DRAM Reference DRAM Termination are all set to AUTO on the E8500 (formerly the E6750 system) and not on the Q9550, and the E8500 system is using the ATI 5830 video card. I am about to update the BIOS on the Q9550 system to FE. Is there any reason I can't go to AUTO on the above settings on both systems? JUST AN ASIDE, THE E8500 SYSTEM RUNNING AT 4GHz WILL ENTER AND EXIT SLEEP MODE WITH NO PROBLEMS! I don't know if the FE BIOS will "fix" the Q9550 system or if it is the ATI video card or just a quirk with the Q9550 but I will know in a day or two.
