    I haven't been able to break 4ghz. I keep getting blue screen with irql message.

    I have it now with 3.8ghz:
    Multi-23x with turbo boost 24
    All power saving features off
    Blck-160
    Qpi-x36
    Unclock-x21
    Ram-x10
    Performance profile standard
    CPU-normal
    Vtt-1.375v
    Vdram-1.66v

    Idle temps are only 1deg higher than stock, peak on prime95 was 74, usually at 71.

    I think my ram is the problem. When it is not at 1600mhz it seems to freak out.

    I will have to try 200bclk later on. Question, what does load lone calibration do and which setting should I use? (auto, standard, level 1 or level 2)

    i7 cpus tend to like odd number multi's. For example lets say for 4ghz 22x181 may take more vcore then 23x173.

    As for load line use level 1 if your on air or lowend watercooling. With LLC off and 1.4v set in bios load would be like 1.35 or less. With LLC level 1 with vcore set to 1.4 you could see 1.375. Level 2 with 1.4 set in bios you could possibly see 1.425 under load in windows.

    you have cpu voltage normal,what amount are you using for 4ghz? set qpi link speed to 44x,and try with 1.39v qpi/vtt(you can lower it later once stable)

    Hey, haven't tried anything for the past few days. This current setup has been working very well with no problems. My Vtt with the template in my last post was actually 1.315V.

    I want to try and squeeze just a bit more and break 4ghz. I want to use the BCLK at 200 so I can hit 1600hz on the ram and use a 21x multi without turbo. I just got to play with the voltages more I guess. How high can I the VTT and CPU voltages go safely? I also haven't touched the LLC yet, I guess I should set that to level 1 then?

    My system is all air cooling (antec 900 and 2 v3, with the CPU on a hyper 212+). The idle is 40C, under load prime95 it holds a stead 71C, spiked at 74C briefly. The room temperature is 70F (21C).

    its up to you if you want to use llc,personally i dont use it,i just raise cpu voltage to compensate

    you can use anything between 1.3-1.38v for cpu,even more but thats up to you,you wont need that much for 4ghz,id say around 1.35-1.36v for cpu and anything between 1.35-1.4v qpi/vtt,can go higher upto 1.45 if needed but i dont think you would need that much,it all depends on your cpu,some need more voltage and some need less,

    once you get it stable at 4ghz you can clock through dvid if you want,it will help idle temps alot but load temps will remain unchanged,or you could just stick with a fixed cpu voltage

    ^^ if cpu voltage is on normal you can enable eist,c3/c6 and c1e to help reduce temps,it shouldnt affect stability,everything else looks fine,if enabling c1e gives you mb squeal/noise like mine does then disable it and use balanced power profile in win7 power options

    Ok so I tried this and it posted fine. Idle temps were at 43C, 3C up from previous. I then ran an intel burn test. About 40s in, I got a blue screen:

    I saw on one of the BSOD lists that 3B means you should add more CPU voltage. So I bumped it up two notches to 1.395V. Everything posted fine. Ran intel burn test again and this time the screen froze within 10 seconds for a few moments then went into a black screen and stayed stuck. After a 7 seconds nothing changed so I powered off an on then reset the settings to my previous 3.8ghz setting.

    I had read about BSOD, and auto restarts, but not a blank freeze - is that an error to be expected?

    It could be not enough qpi/vtt,it wont hurt anything if it freezes,just means its not 100% stable,you could need either more CPU or qpi/vtt voltage

    My setup is this:

    -i7 950
    -X58a-UDR3
    -Corsair XMS3 1600 c7
    -H60 hydro

    Overclocked to a stable 4 Ghz. I cant go further, seems i cant increase the bclk from 174 that it is now...

    Can somebody please direct me as to what i have done wrong..I think i should be able to go to 185 bclk with no prob...I would be very happy with a 4.4-4.5
