    Default Memory running at 1066mHz in X58A-UD3R

    Greetings,

    I just built a new system and my memory is running at 1066mHz. I know this is a problem with Gigabyte boards, and I've read the sticky on memory timings....but, this is my second build. I picked the parts with the intention of doing a middling overclock but this is my first trip into the depths of the BIOS and most of the lingo here is over my head. I'm also a little worried about cooking my brand new parts:-0

    Would someone be willing to do a little hand holding here? Or, a web link for beginners would be great. I'm more than willing to do some reading, in fact I would like this to be step 1 on 'learning how to overclock'.

    Gigabyte X58A-UD3R with F5, Rev 1.0
    Mushkin Enhanced Blackline DDR3 1333, 7-7-7-20, 1.5-1.6v
    Win 7 64bit25

    Thanks

    This is not a problem, this is normal for all boards by JEDEC Standards. Over 1066-1333Mhz you need to set the memory yourself manually.

    I can help you out! Please give me your current full BIOS settings in a template from my signature, and tell me what you would like to run and I will advise back.

    If you are planning to overclock the CPU at all please also let me know what cooler you are using.

    As for guides, sorry there isn't one for Gigabyte X58 that I have seen yet but if you google X58 overclock guide I am sure you will find a few with some similar terms to help you get a little bit of knowledge though.

    The settings from your template are attached as a .txt document.

    My time zone is ahead of you so I tinkered with EasyTune 6 mostly to check the cooling in my set up. The current settings in the uploaded txt file are from profile 3 in ET6. I ran Prime95 until temps settled down, usually 20-40 min. Using Speedfan I had the following temps:
    Temp 1: 44
    Temp 2: 58
    Temp 3: 60
    Core 0-4: 57-61
    Cooler is a CoolIT ECO

    My goal is for a very stable overclock. This is my main workstation in my home office. Lots of apps running simultaneously, some video encoding, maybe gaming when I get caught up on work:-)

    TIA

    OK, please do not use easytune to overclock. Since you are, be sure you now set it back to default and set it so it is not applying anything at startup.

    Try these settings for 160 Bclk

    920 CPU Right?

    Lsd,

    All settings are per your post. CPU is 930 just in case that changes any numbers.

    I'm not sure what you mean by failing stress tests. If I set a higher Vcore, what is the "higher amount under load" that I am looking for, how much is too little/too much?

    Does "stable" mean no errors in Prime 95 (using Blend), or not crashing?

    Lots of choices in the BIOS for QPI/VTT, do I start with 1.25?

    I did find CPU DLL, should I leave that one on 1.8?

    Do you know what Temps 1 through 3 represent in Speedfan 4.4?

    Right now I have the following settings and the hottest core is ~57C
    CPU PLL: 1.8
    Vtt:1.215
    Vcore: 1.33125

    yes you need to stress with prime95 blend test will do,57c at 100% load? if so thats fine,voltages at the moment look fine but as long as its stable,notsure about speedfan,usually mb/northbridge/cpu notsure though or in which order

    Yes, the numbers above were after running Prime 95 until the temps stabilized. Would you tweek from here?

    What would you recommend for temp monitoring? I was using speed fan so I could monitor the fans in my case, as well as watch the CPU temps.

    How about turning Turbo back on? That seems like a useful feature for a general use computer.

    Thanks for your help.....

    yes try with turbo enabled and if stable in prime95 then i would tweak cpu voltage and try lowering if possible,aim for 1.20000v,for all your temps,fan speeds use everest, here

    OK, just to make sure I'm doing this right....I turn on Turbo, and then make small reductions in the CPU voltage, nothing else, run Prime95 for a bit to see if its stable. When I get errors in Prime then I go back a step or two? If I get all the way to 1.2000v then call it a day? And I do all this in EasyTune until I get my final voltage, at which point I make the changes in the BIOS?

    How about CPU PLL? I see from your signature that yours is in Auto. I think you also had Eist and/or C1E enabled....comments?

    Thx for the PM Wazza ;-). Most excellent......

    what is the recommanded setting "QPI Link Speed " for i920 i975 and how calculating this setting?
