    i think you can lower your uncore freq much more with that chip,try 16x,you should use less qpi/vtt voltage then

    He could wazza, but lower means worse performance/bandwidth and the 980X already takes a 4-14% hit in that dept. as is compared to the other 1366 CPU's.

    I only use and or suggest less than 2x when trying to push crazy high memory speeds, other than that I still stand by using 2x or above.

    I hope your IOH Core voltage is a mistype, 1.6V is WAY too much!!

    Please lower this asap if that is the actual amount you have set!

    Lsdmeasap,

    Yea the IOH Core voltage was a typo it is currently at 1.16 volts do think it would be worth trying to lower the vcore voltage to see if i can drops temps any more right now at idle its around 25-30 celcius depending on what core im looking at in RealTempGT it never goes over 60C under normal load and not over 70C running IntelBurn test

    Great to hear that was a typo!!

    That sounds like a great idle temp! If you want to try and lower it you can, but as is that's very good already.

    I re ran prime95 last night with current setting without touching any settings and now getting BSOD telling me my memory timings are off any idea on what i should try?

    I already ran memtest for 6 hours thats comes back clean. and its runs stable at stock speed. It doesn't seem to like the setting that I had it set at for 4.14GHZ overclock even though that was stable after 5 runs of intelburn test and and at least 5 days of on and off gaming under call of duty black ops, not to mention benchmarking with 3dmark and pcmark vantage overall it was stable for 2 weeks at the 4.14GHZ overclock.

    kinda off a dumb thought the only thing that i can think of is i installed a belkin usb powered hub last night and had my sandisk u3 flash drive plugged in while it was running prime95 could this have caused an issue?

    got it working again did more testing yesterday it was a flakey usb powered hub switched it out for a different one and reran prime 95 at 4.14GHZ its now stable under prime95 for 12 hours.

    Nice, so you confirmed it was the USB unit causing issues?

    If so, was the unit itself faulty, or just using it in general caused the issue?

    confirmed the hub was faulty tried it on 2 different computers both computers had issues after i plugged it in any from getting really laggy to locking up tight
