    Yes that is what I told you about System will automatically bump up QPI you must set to what it was before and go up as needed there! read all the post I put about that.

More CPU needed, even though the Intel 20x passes? Oh, and it's temps are a good bit lower than the Intel during the run, so it's not a temp issue.

    Input, please.
    up Vcore as needed to pass and within safe working temps for you. This is common sometimes Intel won't catch errors but that is why you quick test using Intel burn then Prime to test full overclock.

    Before I came here, I had a decent but not aggressive OC of 4.0 Ghz, and my memory at 2000 9,9,9, 25 1T, with this OC ratio / voltage of BCLK 200, Multi of 20. The only thing I set was vcore of 1.38 and dram v of 1.64. I set the basic memory timings using QUICK, but everything else in the BIOS, all other options, voltages, and even SPD were left on AUTO.

    The system seems to run great, and seems stable.

    But today, I went back to that BIOS template, and looked at it again, using the tools I've been using to try and get the new OC. What concerns me is, look at the AUTO QPI/VTT that the BIOS is using:

    But what concerns me more is, look at my Everest results.

    I went ahead and set some memory ratios with the 4.3, to get my RAM up to 1946.

    4.0 Ghz Everest - 20x200 - 2000 Mhz RAM

    4.3 Ghz Everest - 31x139 - 1946 Mhz RAM

    The memory on the 4.0 completely blows away the 4.3, and more than I would think for a minor 54Mhz difference.

    But more surprising, the 4.0 CPU beats the 4.3 CPU, too, on some of the tests.

    First, what about that AUTO QPI/VTT voltage the 4.0 BIOS set.

    Secondly, comments on the benchmarks?
    Also looking at your settings you are going aggressive with memory at 2000mhz which would require alot more QPI/VTT I would still set at manual and bump up as you get error but YOU NEED to test your overclock stable first with lowest memory and RUN MEMTEST to make sure memory is working correctly. The steps for the overclock are everything I did and so far I can pass Prime95 13+ hours along with Intel burn test at 4.5ghz 50+ passes. Trust me I understand you want to hurry and overclock but there are many steps that must be taken to ensure a stable overclock. Also remember that with each step you must test Intel burn I use just for a quick test then I run prime to make sure full stable. I don't like knowing that I passed one test but couldn't pass another because at anytime your overclock could get bsod error then. Just take your time and if you follow the same steps I did you will not only get lowest volts needed but a stable overclock.
    One thing I do after upping BLCK and testing is to make screen shot of each passed test as I showed you to reference back on. It helps alot. Just take your time PLEASE you'll get there.

    The link below might help you to better understand the different volts and what they do along with some of the different errors that occur.

    please dont use auto for any voltages,always set manually and test as auto will use waay too much,if your stressing with prime95 it will test alot of memory too esp blend testing so if it fails you will need to take into account qpi/vtt voltage and ram timings and uncore freq

    Thanks for the link to the OC Guide. I've been reading it over and I have bookmarked it.

    Well, at 20x200, 4 Ghz, RAM 2000 Mhz , the lowest I could set the QPI/VTT and pass an intel burn 20 test was 1.455. At least that's down from the crazy-high gigabyte auto of 1.535



    Sorry if I'm spamming this thread, but I'm still learning, and I figure my detailed info can help with your feedback, and anyone else reading for help.

    FYI - At the above, Prime95 has been running for just under 3 hrs, on 12 threads, and has passed the 1024k, 8k, 10k, 896k, 768k, 12k, 14k, 640k, 512k, 16k...

    All cores are staying below 80c.

    You may also want to think about trying an ODD CPU multiplier, even ones often take much more voltage to get stable.

    Thanks for the suggestion, which reminded me that I've seen that suggestion before. Sounds like Intel Voodoo....

    Maybe I'll try a 21/200 and see if my same settings will work with a touch more OC.
