    Default x58 UD3r i7 950 overclocking issues

    I am trying to get past 4ghz.
    My system specs
    i7 950 with corsair h100 cooling push pull swiftech helix's
    gigabyte UD3R x58
    corsair xms3 triple channel 6gb total
    MSI Gtx 560 Ti Sli video cards
    seasonic x 750 power supply
    crucial m4 ssd

    I am running the following
    frequency 180 x 23
    vcore set to 1.35
    vtt/qpi set to 1.31 but I have tried from 1.31 to 1.37 with no increase in stablity
    dram voltage set to 1.66
    memory set to "standard" and it was at 1400 ish mhz i believe 10 spd.

    I have set the uncore and qpi link speed to right stuff, x36 for uncore and qpi was half of it.
    all power savers off, and hyper threading off

    I have tried other frequencys as well like 21x200

    Right now it won't pass a single test of LinX, it basically just does one pass and tells me theres an error.

    I have tried with vcore up to 1.37. I really don't think it should need more.

    I also just tried to run linX at bios default.. everything @ stock and linx failed at the first pass again. I think I have a RAM issue but I'm not sure. Last week I know for a fact I had passed linX for 10 passes which is pretty weird that now it won't.

    make sure you have the latest linx and sp1 for windows so it supports avx

    that could be why its constantly failing,ill give you some settings to try later when i have time,try leaving mb battery out for 30mins then load optimised defaults in the bios and re enter your oc settings

    I tried using intelburntest this time and as far as I know my windows 7 is up to date.

    I was researching and another forum mentioned testing my ram. I ran HCI memtest and had a few errors and wasn't even fully through the test. I am thinking it could be a ram related issue?

    test with memtest86,if you were getting errors it could either be not enough qpi/vtt voltage,dram voltage or the memory itself is faulty

    even at stock you might need more qpi/vtt,i had a chip that needed 1.36v qpi at stock clocks,try with 1.55v dram voltage i think that memory's rated for 1.5 or 1.55v?and try with 1.36-1.37v qpi/vtt and see if any errors crop up

    the ram is 1.65v rated
    Does this mean I need 1.65volts to run it at a lower speed though? I was just leaving the dram voltage and everything set to auto to try and determine why it can't seem to pass these tests at stock speeds.

    I just tested one stick to 150% with hci memtest and no errors I am going to test it with intelburntest running one stick now.

    just to update I tested this one stick in hci memtest for 40 minutes and then intelburn test. No errors.

    x58 UD3r i7 950 overclocking issues-stick-1-jpg


    I am going to do this for the next two sticks to see if one of them creates the error. I can't think of anything else. Afterwards I will try raising the qpi/vtt again with all sticks but I can ensure you I tested all voltages from 1.31 to 1.37 and none allowed me to pass IBT/linx past 1 test pass.

    if its rated at 1.65v then set it to 1.66v dram in the bios,i had mine set to that for 3+ years with some ocz reaper memory it will be fine,just go through each step at a time before moving on to other things to try ect,

    you might be better off testing in prime 95 and blend test for your memory,and bench ibt/linx with very high for cpu as its very aggressive

    I'm sure itll be fine too but I wasn't running it at 1600mhz until I had a stable overclock.


    The thing is I've been trying to test in IBT/LINX for hours, it just doesn't want to pass 1 pass, tells me "stopped on error" happens like clockwork. It wasn't even passing at stock bios settings!

    So far I've tested two sticks in IBT and they both have passed 10 passes, I tested one at a time. I'm going to test this last stick then see what happens if i try to OC again.

    if it passes each stick but not altogether it points to dram or qpi/vtt voltage
