    ok have re tried loads of variations and the ram works at 1600 with no overclock and the overclock will run stable at 3.8 with no effort so what am i missing??

    well i did have a little success in that i may have neglected my qpi/pll voltage so i upped that to 1.2 with 23 x 160 with memory set to 10(=1600) and all booted well into windows and showed a 3.6ghz clock with 800freq on ram that gave me 1600 but when i ran test it bsod
    i have turned mem back to x8 and all works fine ??

    will try something else...

    What was the BSOD code? You will see it on the middle of the screen, towards the left usually. Or you can look in event viewer, windows logs, system, and then filter for event ID 1001.

    BSOD Error codes and what they mean:
    0X00000050 << Incorrect Memory Timing/Freq or Uncore Multi
    0X00000124 << Incorrect QPI/Vtt Voltage (To Much/Not Enough)
    0X00000101 << Not enough Vcore Voltage
    0X00000109 << Not enough or too Much memory voltage

    I'm sure you just need to tinker a little longer and you'll get it stable, it's not always super easy to overclock

    We'll help you get it stable, don't get worried and give up. To make your testing life a little easier, be sure you are using BIOS profiles. You can save a BIOS profile from the MAIN page of the BIOS using F11, and then F12 is load.

    That way you can save your stable settings and your overclock ones you are working on, then switch between them as needed until you get the overclock stable. Be sure when saving profiles that you move the cursor down for all the saved names after you save your initial one, otherwise it'll overwrite that profile.

    If you want, give me your full settings again that you tried last that failed, and I'll advise back. Sorry for getting to this party so late, I meant to catch you here yesterday morning but I had to leave shortly after I suggested for you to stop in our forums here. There's a template link in my signature for you to give us your full settings!

    ok great i will do that in a min

    so i thought id go x20 with 200 bclock and mem x8 and have upped voltages but still bsod then turn mem down to 6 and all boots and runs nice at 4.6 so im in middle of that now but i will go back into bios and enter settings in your thing in sig and take it from there

    it is running nice at 4.6 tho haha

    if i could link that mem in at 1600 id be a happy bunny..

    Ahh, that's up to you on the x20... I feel a lot of CPU's don't like even CPU multi, it often requires much higher Vcore than an odd value would, but yours might be ok you'll have to try and see.

    4.6GHz? That's high for these CPU's, so that could be part of the problem if you are still trying to run 4.6GHz, unless that was a typo :)

    If you can't catch the BSOD screen you should be able to find the code in the event viewer, then you'll be able to sort it out!

    no this just clocked fine to 4.6 and temps were ok with 1.4 vcore

    ==edit== just noticed i put x20 multi in that post and it was 23==edit==

    i will redo it later and screenshot it

    but have those settings for you

    i went with these settings and a quick flash of bsod just as windows starts so will look in event viewer if i can find it ha

    and these are the codes from the timeframe i have been doing it today
    event id 41,1073,1001

    is that what you meant?

    heres a quick screenshot of 4.6

    just set in bios and boots up fine

    but no matter what i try as soon as i try to link memory to run at 1600 it wont.not even at 3.6 with a variety of settings

    lets hope you spot something in this lot

    Nice, sounds like you have a great CPU!!

    As for the BSOD's real quick, no, this is what I meant (Event ID 1001 only, this ID is BSOD, then you want the bugcheck code in 0x00000000 format)




    As for your settings above, try these changes

    Code:
    Advanced CPU Features:
    CPU Clock Ratio ................................ [23x]
    Intel(R) Turbo Boost Tech .................. [disabled]
    CPU Cores Enabled ............................ [All]
    CPU Multi Threading .......................... [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) ................... [Disabled]
    C3/C6/C7 State Support .................... [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor ......................... [disabled]  << Always enabled, otherwise your CPU may not downclock if your fan/cooler dies when you are not around.
    CPU EIST Function ............................ [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology ................... [Enabled] << Disabled if you do not use Vmware or Virtual PC Programs
    Bi-Directional PROCHOT ..................... [Enabled]
    
    
    Uncore & QPI Features:
    QPI Link Speed .............................. x36 or x44, just keep under 8GT/s
    Uncore Frequency .......................... (20)  << 20-22, higher will often require more QPI/Vtt, but it will give a nice boost to performance/bandwidth
    Isonchronous Frequency ..................[Enabled]
    
    
    Standard Clock Control:
    Base Clock (BCLK) Control ................ [Enabled]
    BCLK Frequency (MHz) .....................160
    PCI Express Frequency (MHz) ........... [100]
    
    C.I.A.2 [Disabled]NOT SURE I HAVE THIS  << Nope! :)
    
    Advanced Clock Control:
    CPU Clock Drive ..............................[800mV]
    PCI Express Clock Drive ................... [900mV]
    CPU Clock Skew ............................. [0ps]
    IOH Clock Skew ............................. [0ps]
    
    
    Advanced DRAM Features:

    B2B CAS Delay ..........................
    
    
    Advanced Voltage Control:
    CPU
    Load Line Calibration ................. [level2]  Level 1 is suggested, level 2 can push very high overvoltage under load.   I always suggest setting Vcore higher if needed, instead of this as it can spike on you past what you wanted.
    CPU Vcore ...............................1.3 * Comment below
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.150v ............1.35  << May need more or less, we'll have to wait on the BSOD code to be sure, same applies above for Vcore
    CPU PLL 1.800v .......................1.88  << Is this needed?   I can use 1.3-1.6 for 4.2Ghz on almost all CPU's I have here?  It's not like older gen CPU's, often stock 1.8 is way more than enough
    
    MCH/ICH
    PCIE 1.500v ...........................1.5
    QPI PLL 1.100v .......................1.2
    IOH Core 1.100v .....................1.2  << may be fine at stock, some boards more than stock will cause errors, others are fine with more than you set, so it's something you just have to test both ways.

    i950 with gigabyte x58 ud5 memory and overclocking help please-bug-jpg

    is that it?

    and yes i will try your settings but will wait to hear what you think once you have seen this code

    thanks for help
