    Sorry, I saw 28 when I looked at it, my bad!

    20 should be ok, but you might want to try 22-26 as well.

    Yes, if running 2000Mhz ram speed you will likely need the full 1.65V ram voltage, setting 1.64 would only be 1.63 or less normally.

    I bumped the RAM to 1.66.

    Well, 24 would not post. 22 would post, but would bluescreen at the windows spash.

    I'm back to 20.

    Any idea?

    what mem multi are you using? you can use a much lower uncore freq than the quad i7's,start with 15x and test and click up one and so on,try and get lower than 20x

    I'm using 12x on the Memory, and I just tested, and 18 is as low as I can go on the UnCore.

    Can you explain why I would want that lower? Just wondering. I had thought that normally UnCore was supposed to be 1.5 or 2 of the Memory Multi?

    EDIT:

    18 is unstable and crashes. I'm going to try 19 and see.

    EDIT:

    19 also unstable.

    The settings shown in the BIOS screenshots above is what I'm running.

    Should I push the QPI/VTT up some?

    EDIT AGAIN:

    I bumped QPI/VTT to 1.29

    EDIT YET AGAIN:

    Instability traced back to CPU Voltage. Had to put back to 1.49 in order to complete Everest Benchmark. Bluescreen at lower voltage. However, I'm back to high temps again.

    I'm beginning to think that there's no combo for my hardware to run at 4.5 and be stable.

    the reason is that with the 980x chip the 2x ram multi doesnt apply because it runs with a lower uncore freq than the quadcore i7 chips,and the lower the uncore the lower qpi/vtt voltage you will need,im not sure how low you can use though maybe 18x is the lowest,your cooling might be limiting you to get a stable 4.5ghz,you might need a custom watercooled kit for that idk,but it lookslike it needs more cpu voltage and with that comes higher temps

    Well, looks like I will shoot for 4.3 and see what I can get.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    TheDonk,

    4.5Ghz is very easy to do with this chip however you are going to have to set memory to lowest i started with 1066mhz then find highest ratio before computer will not boot then run quick test using Intel burn to test highest ratio. when you have found highest ratio then you can start upping blck remember keep an eye on easy tune volts as all them should be set to auto till you find your starting vcore. now when you start upping blck your computer will adjust QPI auto to like 1.315 YOU DO NOT WANT THAT because then you will start to get bsod 124 because you should be using lowest uncore and memory and QPI Link Speed. If you see computer in easy tune bump up qpi/vtt then set manually in bios to 1.75. Right now you are focusing on higest clock not memory and uncore so qpi is not needed at this stage.
    Recap: as you do the above the only thing you should have set in bios is vcore (lowest volts)
    qui/vtt: 1.75v
    dram:

    everything else should be auto till and keep bumping up blck till you can't pass intel burn test (i do 10 passes when trying to get highest clock) then I keep upping blck or vcore till I find my max overclock. I will post more later gotta get ready for work.

    DON3k,

    You must follow steps 1st because just bumping up vcore on these chips will not make stable sure you'll be able to play games and do daily things but sooner of later your chip will fry doing it that way. Its easy to do when you follow steps and shoot 1st for highest cpu clock ratio that your computer will boot into without messing with voltage mine is 30. After that I then looked at easytune 6 to get voltage for that and set in bios I believe it was like 1.215v or something. Next time (everything else memory was like 1066 (auto), uncore like 3030 something (auto). I set memory timing to 9-9-9-24 88) now I started to increase BLCK 2 upgades at a time ***each time I ran Intel burn to make sure 1.215v was good enough for that overclock if intel burn failed then I upped vcore 1 time till It passed Intel burn test. Now you just keep doing this (up BLCK 2 time if needed 1 click on vcore) till you get the clock you want. at 4.5ghz without messing with memory, uncore or any other settings I can boot and pass intel burn with about 1.4000v. WHEN you finally finish doing this (trust me will take some time (took me about 5 hours)) now you can start messing with memory, uncore and other settings. Also keep an eye on EasyTune because sometimes easy tune will up QPI voltage automatically even though you don't need that much. I promise if you follow these steps you will be able to get 4.5ghz easy with this chip (I have HT off btw). If you need any more help feel free to email me and I can get on skype or msn to help ya out.

    Lsdmeasap and wazza300 helped me out greatly and even though at 1st I didn't want to take the long path it paid off in the long run. I will let you know now it will be a long process but doing this it very easy. I will post screen shots of the each test I was running as I upped the BLCK each time and looked at volts so you can see what I mean.
