    Question OVERCLOCK HELP: Gigabyte UD3R REV 1.6 - i7 930 - Gskill 3x 2GB 1066 MHz

    Hi Lsdmeasap,

    I have been reading this forum for the last six months wishing i have a proper rig, reading alot of posts, i just finished building my rig, my baby 3 days ago, so i finally registered. Obviously this is the site for overclocking and all the pros are here, so please help me overclock my cpu, i'd really appreciate it.

    There are the specs for my pc:

    Case: Thermaltake V9
    Psu: Thermaltake 650Watt (got an 860Watt if need be)
    HDDs: WD 1TB 64MB cache 10,000RPM, G.Skill 128GB SSD, G.Skill 64GB SSD
    Mobo: Gigabyte-UD3R rev 1.6
    CPU: Intel i7 930 2.8GHz
    Memory: G.Skill F3-10666CL9T-6GBNQ 6GB (3x2GB) PC3-10666 (1333MHz) DDR3 Triple Channel RAM, 3x240-pin DIMMs, Non ECC Unbuffered, 9-9-9-24, G.Skill Heat Spreader, 1.5V
    GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB
    Networking: ASUS Wireless PCI
    Cooling: Corsair H50 WaterCooler

    I am not a noob, but I am not the best overclocker around and i keep failing, my target OC is 3.8 GHZ stable, so Please help me

    Thank you in advance,
    Zarbo

    Thanks for making a new thread!

    Can you please give me your full current settings in a template from my signature, then I can advise back.

    Please also let me know what BIOS version you are using, if you are not sure you can look in the mainboard tab of CPU-z or by pressing F9 on the MAIN page of the BIOS.

    Thank you so much for your help, the current settings for my bios are on default as i restored them to optimal settings because nothing worked, if you still need the template i will copy it out for you, thanks man. :)

    Ahh ok. Well please be sure you are starting from Optimized Defaults, not Fail Safe.

    Then try these settings for 3.6Ghz, 3.8Ghz is a bit tricky with your memory as none of the memory mutli's come close to being right at 1333Mhz.

    If you use 22 Multi then you can use 170 Bclk for 3.8Ghz, but 22 multi is often unstable and needs far more voltages than 19 or 21, which is why I did not suggest using it

    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

    Uncore & QPI Features:
    QPI Link Speed .............................. x36
    Uncore Frequency ..........................  (Always 2x memory Multi or 2x +1, 2x +2, ect - Higher means more Vdimm or QPI/Vtt often but can help stability)  Set x16-x18 for x8 memory multi

    Below values may be left in Auto if you like, generally this is fine.  For those users who DO Set advanced timings manually, please see some of my thoughts and findings about these settings and rules here

    Thank you so much brother, intel burn test confirmed stable, i probably don't need more than 3.6 GHz on a quad core...

    Thanks again, you are the man

    Wow, no kidding!!??

    No tweaking necessary to get it stable right off the bat eh? That's cool, I guess all you need to do know is try lowering voltages if you want and or tinker to improve performance.

    Glad to hear this worked out easy for you! Post back anytime if you need help tinkering with things if you go for that.

    I'm going to use the info on this thread for my first ever overclock. Hope that some of you guys are going to be around this evening or tomorrow if I get stuck. My GA-X58A-UD3R board is Rev. 1 with F5 bios. My RAM is kind of quirky too, and what I've read you have set all the timings. Hopefully I have enough information to get me going.

    Good luck, and post back anytime if you need help getting things going.

    If you do, please give us the current settings you are trying in a template from my signature, and explain the problem.
