    Default Key to running high BCLK on X58A-UD3R rev 2

    Im trying to push my bclk past 214...but anywhere from 216 and above and I cant get to boot no matter what i change...is that the limit for this mobo???

    Ive tried setting CPU multi to x19 to try and find the highest BCLK

    Things ive tried:
    raising VTT to 1.4 and below
    raising IOH Core to 1.3 and below
    tried PCI-E to 110
    tried running 1.7Vdimm
    tried lowering my RAM multi to x6
    tired changing Uncore multi

    EDIT: also sometimes when I boot at above bclk of 214 i get this boot up in like slow motion, its very strange

    ram has been running 8-8-8-24 all else on auto

    all the ex58a boards dont have any bclk wall,could be the limit of that particular chip? ive booted and ran few minor benches at 215bclk so you should be able to go higher than me esp with water too

    I have seen this chip boot up and run at 4.8ghz with 1.43V...i must have some kinda setting that is out of wack

    wazza means X58a boards

    @The Viper try clearing cmos and loading optimized defaults and try again. LIke you said you might have some kinda setting out of wack. Slowly scale up and just shoot for 215+. When you say wont boot what do you mean? wont past post, or crashes while windows is loading? Do you get a BSOD see my sig for error codes.

    I was able to get LinX stable at 224 bclk at 1.5xx vcore 1.4xx qpi/vtt and 102 pci-e. should need over 103 pci-e till you get past 225. When you gfx start to flack out thats when you need to bump up the pci-e.

    i have a ud5 rev 2.0 and my 930 it seems wont do past 220, i cant even get to boot past 220, max stable is 215. i had to use 1.55v qpi yes 1.55 only takes 1.375 to do 215. Seems like the chip doesnt wanna do it.

    I should also mention i took ioh to 1.3, qpi pll to 1.3, ich to 1.2 i/o to 1.6, pci-e to 110-130, maybe you shoudl try pci of 103-108. Also vcore at 1.4 and multi from 12x to 19x. Dude i tried everything, everything, even got me the UD5 GOOC bios with ocp disabled, lean mode on, and nothing dude, nothing.

    Thanks for that advice, Ill have to try some of those out. The thing is this is a "golden" 920 and has been proven to OC into windows at 4.8, i dont think on this board though...I cant seem to do anything past 213 reliably...in fact just an hour ago i was at 214 or 215 and all hell just breaks loose. My LAN just shut off for no reason, all lights went out...then on one of the reboots things just go into super slow motion, IDK, I really gotta figure this piece of junk board out, the CPU is more then capable.



    EDIT: forgot to ask, are their any risks with running ur PCIE so darn high (over 110)?

    It sounds like it might be the board. Some have ran pic-e upto 130 but they were pushing bclk of 260+

    i dont think it could damage it, but it might take some things offline like sata 3 that use the pci-e lanes. The best way to do it is to use basic hd on the SB, disable all the unneeded controllers, use a basic pci video card , they are liek 10 bucks. You are also useing the lowest model of the x58a models rev 2.0. The main overclocking differences int he new boards are they have pci-e moded to go to 130 theoretically rthey should hit 250-260 best case, they also have more powerphases to cater to the hexa cores.

    ok i played with things extensivly this morning...heres some observations

    1)212 bclk with 21x cpu multi seems to be very reliable, as far as running linx, and restarting the computer, but as I up the bclk by "1", things turn south super fast...at bclk of 215 i can occasionally boot into windows and even run linx reliably, but when i restart computer or shut down computer and turn back on, the computer wont boot with those settings and shows the OC error at startup...and after 215 bclk, forget about it, it simply wont boot.
    2)ive raised and lowered pretty much every voltage
    3)raising PCIE to 102, 105, 110, doesnt help at all at least not at the 215-219 range which is as high as ive tried with that PCIE range.
    4)raising the skews to 100, or 150 doesnt help

    took a month of from overclocking and just took a stab at things again with the FC3 bios...sorry to report same friggin issues! I simply cant boot at or above 215...I have tried raising all voltages, although I havent gone past 1.3V on IOH or 1.4 on VTT...right now im running 4.45ghz (212bclk, 1.31V, 1.22 VTT, 1.14 IOH)...213 bclk is very unreliable and above that no post.

    Someone please tell me whats going on...i dont know if i mentioned but this has been the same issue across 2 cpus and 2 UD2R rev 2's.
    Could having a gtx 480 (dont have spare card to test) be causing problems with a high bclk?

    I know this is the lowest mobo of the X58 class but 212 max bclk?
