Woo Hoo! Read it and weep...
I tried this a few times... and failed. Overall, I'm happy. Back to WCG!!!
Still no 24 x multi ?
No the BIOS just won't let me go any more than 22. I type 23 or 24 and it just reverts to 22. Grrr...
I must say that I'm happy with the Bclk number, it booted and ran fine up to 210, just couldn't get Prime95 to run. Interestingly, Prime95 would crash gracefully, just a dialog saying it terminated unxepectely and the system kept humming away. Previously, I would either get a reboot or BSOD.
there is no 23 multi on X5670 ...........use the + or - keys.
...interesting, I'll try that.
I wouldn't have gotten there if it werent' for this guide; http://forums.evga.com/m/tm.aspx?m=20028
i just set my clocks the same as yours..........check the difference in volts.
Yea, I tried lowering the Vcore and definitely needs more juice than yours. I've got two top case fans blowing into the case, one directly towards the Scythe Ashura fan, so the temps are manageable. The chipset & VRM coolers are only warm to the touch.
Didn't work, BUT... I enabled the CPU Turbo function and BAM, it's doing 24x under load!
I'm currently running Prime95 at a cool 4.500 Ghz 24x188. Ok so far. Can't do screenies as I forgot to bring the Wifi adaptor with me.
Eh, buggers. Came in this morning to the BIOS boot screen and then the system (BIOS) reverted to safe mode and I lost all my settings. Guess I'll be dialing it back to 4.4 Ghz. What a PITA, but I'm not complaining, went from a 4c/4t CPU @4ghz to 6c/12t @4.4Ghz CPU.
I've been watching your posts and I am glad for your success. I may have to attempt the hard mod, as yet undecided.
Did you by chance re-TIM the Northbridge and Southbridge? (If I do the mod, I will remove the heat sink for better access.)
Are you back to the 22 multi or the 24?
I haven't had the time to re-set and get back to 4.4, hope to today or tomorrow, busy day at work. I will turn turbo back on for the 24 multi.
I totally re-did the TIM on the NB ans SB heastinsk... you really have to take it off for room around the resistor. They did a decent factory job but it the paste was a little excessive and dried up. Used AS5. Unfortunately, I never measured the temps before I did that, so have no baseline.
I use 22 x and up the buspeed for faster memory.
I asked the question because the board runs hot and my TIM was dried up as well. I agree they did a good factory job, initially.
Thanks for the heads up.
From what I can tell, there are three things on the EVGA board that control memory speed:
The Memory / Bus ratio
The mystical "CPU Uncore Frequency", which AFAIK overrides the Memory / Bus raito. I set it to 16x, the mem multi to 2:8 and got memory at 1600 (I think) with a bus of 200. How that math works, I don't have clue!
Edit 200x16 = 3200 | 3200/8 = 400 | 400*2 = 800. At DDR, 800 = 1600 mem speed. Does that sound right?
