    Default X79-UP4 rev1.1 won't overclock i3820

    Hi,

    I just built this rig 5 days ago, and so far, I haven't been able to perform any overclock at all on this processor. I've tried enabling the Non-K OC options but so far it won't let me adjust anything, everything stays on Auto. The options to change the frequency and multipliers all seem available, but upon clicking on them, nothing happens. I can only enable/disable HyperThreading, Turbo Boost and a couple other things - the rest will simply not be accessible, even though they appear to be on the BIOS.

    My BIOS version is F4.

    Easiest possible overclock is just to make the multiplier to 43 instead of 36 and thats it.

    Yes, I know, thank you.

    I can not change any of the multipliers. The BIOS won't let me access them with a double click/Enter.

    hi buddy
    the 3820 is locked processor and will overclock only with strap...

    you can find that option in advanced frequency settings
    processor base clock(gear ratio) - original is 1.00 you have to set to 1.25

    also you have to mess with your voltages a bit
    BUT BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR TEMPS

    i advise you to search more about overclock before do anything and decide if you can handle the risks because there are risks involved on this process
    like i said is better you read more about overclocking because if you don't really know what you are dong there are many risks involved

    First off UPDATE YOUR BIOS. F5 is far more stable for any OC than F4(which i find one of the crappiest ones for that board). You can get 4.3 GHz without doing anything other than changing the multiplier for turbo boost to be 43. This will make the cpu boost to 4.3 GHz and still have all c states enabled so when idle it will downclock to 1.2GHz to reduce power consumption and emitted heat. You can set this in M.I.T. > Advanced Frequency Settings > CPU Clock Ratio - it is never locked in any BIOS for that board. If you want to get higher overclock go to M.I.T. > Advanced Frequency Settings and change BCLK/PCIe Clock Control to Manual (you can either type "Manual" or change the value with + and - of your numpad on your KB) this will unlock the features you need to get higher OC. It all depends what OC you aim.

    According to CPUBoss site (I compared the i7-3820 to the i5-4670K just to get the details of the i7-3820) the I7-3820 is unlocked. (You will need to scroll down to the direct comparisons between the two to see they are both "Unlocked").
    Just to test, I just went in to my BIOS and changed my multiplier from 36 to 43 (and changed nothing else) and yup it worked.

    May not solve the OP original problem (I have a different motherboard), but the CPU is unlocked.

    CPU is locked to multiplier no higher than 43, unlocked ones do not have multiplier limitation.

    That's more like it. It seems like the rest of the posters couldn't figure out that my problem is not stability (I have a more than enough decent grasp at how to overclock my chip), but the fact that I simply can not access any of the manual overclock options on this board, whether it is the multiplier up to 43 or the CPU straps.

    Here's a video showing the issue:

    YouTube

    Now, you say updating the BIOS should help. I'll see about that and give you a shout. In any case, this Gigabyte should have dual BIOS if I recall correctly, so worst case scenario, I won't be completely screwed.

    Your video is private so noone can see it except you. Making it public will help.
