    Hi,

    Really confused. According to CPU-Z the settings have reverted to previous ones as follows:-

    Core Speed: 2400MHz
    Multiplier: x12
    Bus Speed: 200
    QPI Link: 3599.8MHz

    Did have Cloud OC installed however this has been uninstalled.
    Also tried easytune6 however this has been uninstalled as well.
    (Neither of the above were a success).

    Any idea's what's happening with the settings please?

    CPU-Z did report the new settings originally however they've reverted back which is causing a lot of confusion. Sorry for being a pain.

    Thanks.

    It's normal,its just auto downclocking to save power,if you run linx and stress it it will jump to 3.8ghz if you want it to run at 3.8ghz all the time then turn off c1e in advanced cpu features in bios and select high performance profile in Windows power saving options,please note that cpu will run at full voltage set in bios

    Your bus speed in cpu-z would say 133 if it was stock,but it says 200 so thats right,Any heavy apps or games and the multiplier would switch to 19x200 giving you 3.8ghz

    Hi, That makes sense now (thanks). Didn't think that the CPU was downclocking to save power. The Mobo was originally installed in a machine that Overclockers U.K. built and there's a profile they've created in the BIOS. Selected that instead and noticed that CPU-Z initially reported the correct settings however as you've said it then downclocked.

    Googled 'Linx' and it comes up with the following forum thread (there's a link to a download there but it's no longer pointing towards the download only a landing page):-
    LinX - A simple Linpack interface - Page 10 - XtremeSystems Forums

    Is Prime95 worth giving a try?

    Oh, by the way, any idea's what the maximum safe temperature(s) is/are for the core(s) of an an i7 920 please? Don't want to go overheating my CPU.

    Also can the same OC'ing be done on a CO Stepping i7 920 at all? Just have another recently built rig with one of those installed. Guess was unlucky to have bought a CO Stepping CPU as opposed to a DO Stepping CPU.

    Thanks .

    Overclockers U.K. profile configuration:-
    Core Speed: 3800MHz
    Multiplier: x19
    Bus Speed: 200
    QPI Link: 3599.9MHz (fluctuating a little)

    Temperatures have shot up to:-
    74C
    73C
    74C
    71C

    The latest version of LinX or prime95 can be found in the post sticked to the top of this forum. Along with alot of other programs and drivers. There is a paged sticked for the latest bios also.

    Keep core temps at or under 80c for 24/7 use.

    So you stable now at 3.8ghz? What cooler are you using? Use coretemp to monitor cpu cores keep them below 80c
    Hi,
    Apologies for missing this reply.

    Was getting anxious with the temperatures approaching 80c (thankfully didn't reach 80c though).
    Surprising how quickly the temperatures rise with a stress-test running. Very rapid increase.

    I've built this rig using a Chieftec Case that was pre-modded by Alpha-Cool however the mod was done back in 2006 from what I've gathered and basically the Case has been sat on a shelf at a warehouse until literally only a few weeks ago when I'd bought it.

    The tubing needed replacing as the coolant had crystalised in the tubes. Decided not to use coolant but deionised water only and a Silver killcoil to reduce the possibility of algae build-up. Everything's been given a thorough flush-through and thankfully the pump is working okay. Surprised how quiet it all is as build a rig around a CoolerMaster Cosmos S fitted with one of their own 'stock' liquid-cooling kits and the pump on that is noisy.

    The radiator that is in use allows for one 80mm fan to be fitted only therefore at a guess the temperatures are going to run high with overclocking.

    At stock settings the temperatures are 45C, 41C, 47C and 43C respectively which I think are acceptable.

    Just checked and there's just about enough room to add an additional 80mm fan the opposite side of the rad that a fan is already fitted to (so that the rad is set-up in a 'push-pull' configuration). What do you think - Is this worth considering?

    Thanks again for your help with all of this - much appreciated .

    Temps are fine,is 1.275v the voltage it uses when you set cpu to normal? If so you could reduce load voltage by setting dvid to -0.0500v this would alter load cpu voltage to 1.2250v and still auto clock down at idle,you would need to test it for stability as it would reduce load temps if stable

    Your c0 chip just try the same settings and see,its all down to individual cpu regardless of stepping

    Hi,
    Thank you. Think that the temps went up to 81C maximum on one possibly two of the four cores whilst running a stess-test. Please confirm this is okay as I'm not 100% certain that I've a large enough rad failing that possibly need to add an additional 80mm fan to configure in the push-pull configuration mentioned (guess this is worth a try?)

    The idle voltage is showing as 1.248v - is this okay?

    Thanks .

    You can attach another fan if you want,yes 81/82c will be ok

    When cpu is idle it still uses 1.248v? It should use 0.975v or thereabouts unless your running cpu at full speed all tje time,makesure you've set all options in advanced cpu features to enabled except c1e,disable that,maksure cpu voltage is set to normal in cpu voltage list and set to balanced power saving profile in Windows power saving options

    Did you set dvid to -0.0500v ? I run my cpu clocked this way and I find it the best way,giving me 4.2ghz speed when I need it and around 2.6ghz when just browsing web ect,don't worry the cpu always uses full power if and when needed kinda like a giant Intel turbo boost

    Hi,
    Shall check the advanced features as you've suggested. I was concerned with the CPU running at 1.248v.
    4.2GHz that's brilliant. What sort of temperatures are you getting?

    Think that my Coolermaster Aquagate would bring temperatures down further as there's two 80mm fans fitted to a twin-fan rad as opposed to the one-fan rad that I'm using. Whilst I really like the Aquagate Liquid Cooling the pump runs quite noisily (perhaps it should not be running noisily - not 100% sure).

    Need to get some kip shortly I think otherwise will need a caffeine-boost to stay awake.

    Thanks again for all of your help. It's much appreciated .

    Try those settings so that cpu downclocks in speed and voltage when idle,you can reduce load voltage by using dvid it will reduce temps further

    My temps are around 76-79c across the four cores load and around 36-40c idle,using the c states and dvid help with idle/load temps and shouldn't affect oc
