    Cool Settings for 3.8GHz overclock: i7-920, Gigabyte EX58-UD5 with latest F12 BIOS

    Soooo glad I updated my BIOS from F9 to F12 seems a more stable OC. Anyway below are the settings that worked for me using the standard TT template. The OC was stable as judged by 2 hours running Prime95 (max CPU temp 60C) and 1h running memtest86+, idle CPU temp 38C

    CPU: Intel Core i7 920 D0 stepping
    BIOS: F12
    Motherboard: Gigabyte EX58-UD5 v1.0
    RAM: 6G (3x 2GB) OCZ PC3 16000 DDR3 memory 7-8-7-20-2T at 1.65V

    Hi i used your settings and Achive the 3.8 but its Inestable
    the only difference between your computer and mine is the
    memory mine has 12GB Ram 8-8-8-24 What do you think
    i should tweak to make it stable ??

    I used this other guide
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
    and achive 4.0 Stable but i cannot change my memory to 1600 Any ideas ?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    When you say you used LSD's settings which settings would that be.. Post back with your current settings that are not stable and we can help you with them.

    When you say those settings are not stable.... How so???? did you get BSOD failed Prime95 after XX amount of hours on (this test) or failed LinX max memory on the (x number run)

    12gb will require more QPI/VTT voltage.

    If you get BSOD check the error codes in my sig will help you know which voltage to change.

    Hi

    I used HowardB settings and the system was inestable
    so I reset the BIOS to default and applied the settings again
    seems to be more stable now... only tried for an hour
    bellow are the pictures...

    Attachment 2886

    What I want to achive is to reach at least 4.0 or 4.2 Ghz (SAFE)

    I have an i7 D0 Water Cooling with a Corsair H50
    in an Antec P183 Case with 12 Gb Ram Corsair 8-8-8-24
    one PCI Express Video Card Nvidia 9800 GT

    So i tried this guide:
    RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting
    And it worked at 4Ghz but the Ram was only in 6x
    when i change to 8x for 16000 it wont boot

    Let me know what is the safest way to go to 4.2
    without frying the chip :P


    Thanks in advance for your help and sorry if my english its
    not that good its not my first lenguage.

    try around 1.25v cpu voltage and 1.35 qpi/vtt voltage for 4.2ghz,if it fails add more qpi/vtt voltage a little at a timeupto 1.4v

    Hi wazza300

    Tried with your templates but i cannot manage to be stable with 4.2
    Tried with different QPI here are the results

    1260 = Computer Restart No Blue Screen
    1280 = Blue Screen Error 124
    1300 = Blue Screen Error 124
    1320 = Blue Screen Error 124
    1340 = Computer Restarted No Blue Screen
    1360 = Computer Restarted No Blue Screen
    1380 = Windows Freezes In Logo

    All of the these results are 2 o 3 seconds after running prime95.

    If i change the DRAM to 1.6 Sometimes i got Blue screens
    with errors:

    -0003B
    -000D1
    -000FC
    -0001E

    All with different QPI Values......

    Do you have any advice to make my machine stable ?

    Thanks in advance.

    you will need more with 12gb,maybe 1.4v for qpi/vtt start from 1.3000v for cpu voltage,you will need to keep testing and adjusting,dont use dvid just leave on normal

    Hi Folks

    First post here , Just built an i7 920 rig & found this post very helpful when oc to 3.8ghz . I have been running prime95 for at least 2 hours now with temps at 59 59 60 57 using the h70 . Very Chuffed

    Thanks lads , really appreciate it
