    Default 920-D0 with X58A-UD5 (v1.0) trying to get past 4.2Ghz... Not having any luck

    so right now I am stuck at 4.2Ghz.... I was able to run my memory at 2133Mhz with Memtest and was able to get a few passes (CPU and everything was at stock at the time)... here is my HW listing.

    CPU = i7-920 D0 [Cooled By Corsair H70 mainly but right now on air but I'm benching in a cold room -10deg C] with 1.325v... CPU is at 40DegC right now.
    MB = GA-X58A-UD5 (v1.0) with F5 Bios
    RAM = Kingston HyperX 2000Mhz (tested at 2133Mhz @ 9-11-9-27-1T, 1.64V) with HyperX Fan Kit
    GPU = 1x EVGA GTX480 SSC
    PSU = Corsair TX950W
    HD's = (3) Intel-V 40GB in Raid0

    Now I'm not sure how you guys put up all your settings... I'm sure it's an output of ET6 or something but I'm not sure how you do it, so if someone could let me know that would be great.

    Here's a CPU-Z ID CPU-Z Validator 3.1

    Also read about an F11 option that saves or calls Bios settings... How does that work? I didn't see any details in the manual about this option.

    Thanks.

    It's all done manually, the settings I mean. Blank templates are in my signature.

    For 920 CPU to run memory above 2000Mhz is super hard to keep stable, due to uncore over 4Ghz. You can do it, 2000 or a bit above, but you need very high QPI/Vtt most of the time and it's not really suggested for 24/7 use.

    You will have much better luck at lower speeds with tighter timings, better performance too.

    F11 on the MAIN page of the BIOS saves your current settings to profile, F12 is load from Profile.

    If you want more than 4.2 you should back down off the memory and uncore speed, then you should be able to clock the CPU higher.

    I agree,your high memory speed is holding your CPU back,try with around 1600mhz and correct uncore and push the bclk

    Thanks guys, I'll drop the ratio to 8 and see how I fare. I would love to hit in the 4.7ish range for benching and a 4.0-4.2 for a 24/7OC

    I did hit 4.6 once (219x21) with a memratio of 6 (uncore was set to auto) and I was able to get a CPU-Z but that was about it... and silly me I forgot to write down my settings... but that's what happens when you bench after a few drinks. lol

    I have the template saved and pre-filled out to what I remember and I'll update and post up later today.

    Thanks.

    What is CPU and PCI-E Clock Drive? Default is 700mV but the template has them at 800mV and 900mV. I thought I remember changing these before when I hit 4.5-4.6Ghz on one of my druncken bench nights...

    I think it helps the CPU and pcie keep up with the oc/bclk

    that would make sence, I think I read somewhere that it is the clock generator voltage, and that at higher clocks you need to increase it a tick or two...

    btu can't at all find where I read that.

    take2 is later today.

    700/700 is Fail Safe defaults, I suggest you load optimized defaults and save/apply/reboot BACK TO BIOS.

    Once in the BIOS again go set your SATA/Disk settings again, then any overclock settings you want. You MUST go directly back into the BIOS or you can corrupt your OS if you are using RAID, if not then it wont matter if windows failed to load you'd just have to change IDE to AHCI or visa versa.

    Don't just change them to 800/900, you need to start with Optimized Defaults, there are hidden settings that may not be set properly when using Fail Safe as you are now

    This is very good to know. I didn't get to playing with my system yesterday. will try this tonight.

    thanks and I will let you know.
