    Default i950 with gigabyte x58 ud5 memory and overclocking help please

    hi all
    i have been directed here by Lsdmeasap so i can find help with firstly my memory and secondly some decent solid overclocking

    ok heres the issue

    my memory is not running at 1600 as spec

    i have upped voltage to 1.6 but everytime i set the multiplyer to x10 (as my blck is 166) it wont boot into windows

    i would like my memory to be running at spec speed with a 4.0ghz (which i have at present but would like to get more ) overclock on cpu

    i have done this all before but have forgotten most of it

    i do remember on my old 780sli board to unlink mem until overclocking done then link it in hopefully on 1;1 but now with all this blck unicore thing im not sure what is what.

    can anybody help on this with some good starting settings in my bios

    im on f8 bios

    i7 950
    6gb geil 1600 memory
    x58 ud5 board
    c300 ssd
    2x gtx280's
    thermalrite 120 extreme

    thanks in advance

    i have just got in and looked at the spec on paper and the qpi/vtt it is 1.35

    and all i have on mem is in cpu z it puts it at 1.6 to run a profile at 1600ghz and if i do that without an overclock on cpu then it works fine at 1600 on 1.6v but need to know how to unlink the mem while i overclock

    i will start going through the settings in the bios and checking back here

    thanks

    to lower your memory speed look for spd system memory multiplier and change it with 8x,10x, ect to alter the speed,166x10 multiplier gives you 1660mhz ram speed,it might be because of that,you could try a 21x191 bclk to give you 4011mhz cpu clock,turn off intel turbo boost and use 8x memory multi to give you 1528mhz ram speed,keep dram voltage at 1.6v,qpi/vtt at 1.35v and set uncore freq to 16x or 17x(whichever is more stable) cpu voltage if on auto idk probably needs to be around the 1.25v-1.3v mark but you will need to test

    if rams rated at 1.5v i wouldnt go higher than 1.6v it should run fine at 1600mhz at that voltage,your cpu voltage seems about right,once you do get things stable you can look at reducing it if possible

    just tried all of that and even with voltage that high it wont boot into windows

    i have had this running well at 4ghz before so it must be something im doing wrong

    what would be a better system for gaming ? an overclock on cpu with mem running slow or no overclock with mem at 1600

    thanks for all the help anyways
