But me like this one
get an FX then
this is what i can get right now!! i tried same oc with 1,375v and hardly get to windows!!now its on 1,4v and it seams stable!! didnt do any benchmarks..but played some game and till now no death screens or random restarts or something!!
Well, you may be able to push a bit further with some more voltage, however you'll need to keep a keen eye out for throttling. Gigabyte dropped the ball on the 3.0s and they throttle back unnecessarily as a result. I thought this one was stable at 4.6 for a while, but noticed throttling that was not due to heat. Had to drop back to 4.4 to keep all cores from throttling.
1.4V for 4.5 is pretty damn good. 1.425ish will probably see you to 4.6.
^This. I have mine running 2400 with 1.33V(iirc) set in BIOS. Could probably lower it a little, but meh, it's stable and in the safe zones for both heat and voltage.
You're also running a boatload of 2400 ram so I really don't think you're out of line. At first I thought it was high till I checked your ram.
Alright I take that back, I saw the wrong rig, that looks like a killer rig by the way.
For the FX though you could probably get away with 1.2v CPU_NB or less IMO
Question: I am running 4 x 4GB Kingston HyperX 1333 ram. For some reason my HTT clocking is not stable even at 210. I want to increase ram performance, same with NB freq. Can't get a stable one. Will 2 x 8GB solve this issue?
Yes increased voltage on Ram, CPUNB and NB (not a whole lot, up by .25v). pump more volts?
Well, thanks for the tip Johan. I'll tinker with it some more this weekend when my dad is out of the hospital. The RAM does 2133 C9 happily, just have to clock it back up.
Thanks! It does everything I need and then some(gaming, compiling, audio editing/processing, transcoding, etc.), and the AMD rig is definitely no slouch either. Could use an upgrade in the GPU department, but considering the most GPU load that rig sees is WoW at 1680x1050, they're more than adequate.
It's hard to say swami without a bit more info. 4 sticks is harder for the IMC than 2 but that's some low speed ram. What timings and volts does the ram use at stock. Also you won't need to add voltage to the NB just the CPU_NB.
Pushing the ram may require a few more volts to the CPU_NB but I wouldn't say over 1.25v. That 1.33v will run most of my FX CPU's close to 3000NB. Or more in the case of my 9370. One thing for sure it'll lower your temps a bit. Or alternately you could bump the nb up one more multi and see if it's stable.
So it's within the realm of reason that I could leave it at 1.33, bump the NB to 2600(from 2400), AND set the RAM to 2133? That would net a good bit of performance considering this board has me limited to 4.4GHz. I'm not complaining, it's already zippy, but any bit helps, right?
Temps are fine, the Xig Aegir has fans in push/pull, and there's plenty of airflow over the VRM heatsink as well as through the case.
when i took my ram from 1600 to 1866 i needed to put more volts in 1.6V instead of the stock 1.5V.
didnt need to change anything in NB or CPUNB.
basically i can run full stock with overclocked RAM if i want to. timings had to be tweaked too ofcourse
well that's a bummer, I went for the UD7 in the first place since it supports the 9570 so I thought that running an OCed 8350 would be a walk in the park.
i remember digging alot into VRMs of different boards wghen i got my extreme 4 and saw that its the best.
i'm good with me little 6+2 board lol
Most definately,that should be plenty of voltage for that and most all the FX can run 26-2700 NB fairly easily. Some just stiop there though without excessive voltage. Sometimes it'll need a bit of a V_Core bump as well since the CPU is working harder now.
I wouldn't go that far but it's at least suitable for the FX
Maybe the UD7 is different, all I remember when reading about it is that the UD5 and UD3 had this issue, I don't recall if the UD7 was mentioned...
Just push it, ymmv. Make sure HPC mode is enabled(it's supposed to address this exact issue. works for some, others not as lucky). All it can do is clock like it's supposed to or hit a throttle wall. Even if you do have a throttle wall, yours may be higher, again ymmv.
Waiting for the RAM, fan controller (Sentry 2 Mix) and the LCDMODKIT 4x20. I'm considering cutting a side window, what do you think?
Looking damn good. Great choice on GPU
Definitely, that's a clean system, go for the window. Personally, though, I'd keep a 120/140mm fan where that one is now after converting to a window.
I would make an inverted L shape to keep the fan there.
best for for what was available in india. we dont have a lot of gigabyte and i aint going for biostart or asus.
this board is really great. havent seen the v core even flicker a bit under load when stressing. and me doing 4.5 with 1.375V with overclocked ram without any fuss goes to show how good it really is.
only problem i have with this board is some of the connectors are in weird places. well one actually, the front panel audio lol. crazy.
please turn that side panel fan clockwise 180degree lol.
Erm... 180 degrees clockwise is the same as 180 degrees anti-clockwise.
But yeah, I noticed it, too.
@de.das.dude As long as you're happy with it that's all that matters.
Personally I'll take my ASUS boards.
its not that only i am happy look at what this board can do.
system in my specs.
yes i got it to 5Ghz on air.
id take asus too but too bad they die every 6months and all their products are made with the same crap.
You can believe what you like, maybe you had a bad experience, not sure but you won't find a much more capable board than the CHV-z and the Sabertooth. I have examples as well that's not just the board but your CPU as well. One thing I do know is when the chips are down and I need to put 1.8v into my CPU my boards handle it just fine. How about almost 5.1 cinebench with 1.36v
Or maybe something like this 5.4, 3000+ NB and 3600 HT 2200mem
