    1.5v is high for 24/7 use imo,and temps are high at 90c+,every chip is different needing more or less voltage,if its lasting longer in prime with 1.5v its probably this that its needing,only other way is to stay as you are and dont stress the cpu 100% or drop your overclock to 4.3/4.2 and settle for that?

    I guess CPU voltage is the issue. I suppose I could lower QPI/VTT down to 1.39 again...

    CPU I have 1.45

    What do you think is a safe upper on the CPU voltage for 4.5Ghz?
    TheDON3k

    One thing I found and I am at 4.5GHz with QPI/Vtt Voltage 1.17500v is that many 980x don't need that much QPI. HOwever my NB Frequency at the moment is rather low at 3020.1MHz and so far stable. I am currently running test to get lowest volts possible and stablity I use Intel Burn for fast test then prime95 I will run overnight. Try setting your memory to lowest multi then use QPI/VTT default (must set or auto will jump as high as 1.535v) to 1.17500v if you start getting BSOD 124 no matter what you do. I am using clock ratio 30 which so far seems rock solid with this chip. 151x30

    I will post settings when I have run all test as well.

    Important!!!! When trying to get stable
    - 1st up to the highest cpu clock ratio that you can boot and run intel burn test on
    - 2nd make sure all settings are default after you determine above (USE EASY TUNE 6 to verify volts)
    - 3rd is the longest as it has taken me since about 1am this morning I just up BLCK 2 times starting from stable ratio then adujust Vcore as needed (all others still default)
    - 4th keep upping BLCK SLOWLY to get to desired clock. (doin this I was able to get to 4.5GHz at 1.412v and QPI at 1.1750 now my uncore is at default still but I will adjust after I determine I have stable clock ratio)
    - 5th set memory to disired speed AFTER you get to clock you want (then run MEMTEST 1000% and Intel Burn atleast 20 passes for me)
    -6th start upping Uncore 1 notch at a time ONE NOTCH at a time is very important because remember your QPI is already or should be at 1.1750v so 3170MHz might require you to up QPI a notch as well.
    -7th continue doing this till you are either at uncore speed you want or temps become a problem. At 4.5Ghz you should if you using water cooled be idle at lowest 21-28c full load 64-72c.

    I'll admit that I'm a lazy overclocker, just shooting for something that works, that won't kill my hardware, and doesn't tie me up rebooting 1000 times.

    Basically, probably someone you'd hate to deal with, when I'm asking OC questions.

    But I do want to say that I do appreciate all the input and help.

    I tried 1.175 on the QPI/VTT, but the machine would reboot the moment the Windows splash screen appeared.

    In an attempt to get some of the voltage under control, I set my QPI/VTT to 1.24, and lowered my CPU to 1.47, but turned load-level calibration to Level 2.

    BTW: East Tune 6 agrees with CPU-Z on the CPU voltage reading. As to why what I apply in BIOS is not reflected in reality, I can't say.

    However, with the lower voltages, my system seems as stable as before. That is to say, seems to run for general use, but Prime95 still bombs the system after a couple of mins.

    My temps, at idle, are in the upper 30s, with a couple of cores popping into the low 40s.

    At Load, temps seems to be around 80ish, before Prime 95 causes a crash. This literally takes about two minutes before the P95 kills the machine.

    For clarification, if there is such a thing, what is generally preferred, a higher multiplier, or bus? In other words, if I were to get 4.5 by raising the bus, and lowering the multi, would this likely perform worse than the opposite?

    Well, I completed a complete run of PC Mark Vantage, 3D Mark 06, 3D Mark Vantage, and CineBench.

    Here's my results:









    Temps reached a max, and only on one core, of 80c

    what speed and brand of ram are you running and what timings? its probably not enough qpi/vtt voltage thats making it fail,as for using higher bclk/cpu multi and vice versa it shouldnt affect stablity,tried with lower uncore freq? around 15/16x?

    GSkill Trident 9,9,9,25 1T @ 2005 Mhz

    At a much lower multi on the RAM (something like 1300) I had a QPI/VTT as high as 1.435 and P95 was still failing. But it seems that it was failing with the 101 STOP, which is CPU voltage?

    I can run the 2000 Mhz on the RAM at 9,9,9, 25 1T, as you see above, with the QPI/VTT @ 1.24, and complete all the test you see in my previous post.

    As I mentioned, I had set my CPU VCore as high as 1.5, and yet P95 was still bombing with a STOP 101.

    Yes, 101 means you need more Vcore, but that could also be caused by incorrect QPI if it's way to high or low in conjunction with incorrect Vcore.

    I would advise you use LLC level 1, not 2

    OK, I've changed it to Level 1

    So as to make clear the BIOS and its settings, and any differences that are there from the UD5 to the UD9, I've captured screenshots of my existing OC settings:

    BIOS1
    BIOS2
    BIOS3
    BIOS4
    BIOS5
    BIOS6
    BIOS7

    CPU-Z Memory SPD Info

    I'm running 1T instead of 2T. At my previous conservative OC of 4.0Ghz, which I'd been running for a couple of months, the RAM worked fine at this setting, Prime95 was fine, etc. However, I would not be surprised if I need to change it back to 2T for the new OC. Comments?

    Again, thanks for the help and suggestions.

    Lower Uncore may help, but it may be ok where you have it.

    I do think you need more QPI/Vtt though, and more ram voltage may also help, both since you are at 2000Mhz with a higher uncore than needed

    The Uncore Clock Ratio? I have 20 now. Maybe lower to 18?

    I suppose I can bump the RAM voltage a tiny bit, to the next notch up....
