now to tweak some more.
Sol, that is some cpu.
thank you very much sir
You have the latest BIOS already, the latest one released on the 16th is killer bro!!! Great BIOS.
ya i know!!! god i was pulling my hair out a couple hours ago it would stall after DMI verification and i was like WTF?!?!!?!?!?! it worked last night...so after chattin with binge i finally got it to post at stock clocks...with my ram at like 800mhz...i got it to boot from the thumb drive. flashed to S1ZG from S1ZC or w/e and whalla now it pretty much loves me...and i love it. month and a half later i finally got my board to boot.
yeah bro the new BIOS improved my overall CPU and memory overclock amazingly. Stable at 191*21 4.0 GHz @ 1.305v, before it took me 1.35v and ram divider at 2:6
i just need to play with my ram some more...it doesnt like it when i run 133 at the rated 9-9-9-24 so i do 1600 @ 11-11-11-28 1T and it boots but if i force 1333 i cant boot at any clock. weird. i disabled turbo mode though. i think the 20x multi is alot easier to work with i was getting frustrate because i couldnt pin point when it engaged and when it didnt so i would think i was getting 4Ghz but it would try and boot at like 4.3 and crash
hmm, that is indeed weird. you setting your RAM voltage manually?
i edited my post
ya i set it normally...i did everything manually including setting the trfc to 74 but it did not like that...so atm my ram is all on auto because i figured once i get what the system is doing with it i can adjust that because i had no idea it was loosining the timings that much so i was clocking blind for a bit couldnt figure out why the system was tweaking but now that i know what the board is auto setting i can tighten from their and hope.
thats what I did.
Hey about turbo mode, mine is always at 21x when ih ave it enabled, it engages always.
ahhhh that makes things alot easier then.
at least i've never seen mine drop down, never ever.
for example right now
I got a shot of my rig now with the new cooling setup, in case you missed it link to that thread below
that looks nice i just spent like 30min rebuiulding my block...my fan was making like a clicking noice so i take a flashlight and look in my side panel and i see movement i look and theirs waves in my rez...problem? their shouldnt be because it was full to the brim....i freak out and pull the side panel off...and their is a puddle forming all over the bottum of my case and my cards. and its dropping out of my barbs and into my NB!!! its all fine now hopefully. thank god for this feser my GF gave me..NON CONDUCTIVE!!
dude you have bad luck with water cooling, thank god everything is ok. Keep us posted.
ill keep ya posted and ya iv had too many close calls to really like water cooling...i might give up one day and go streight to phase....because you need to cool pelts w/ water and im all done this BS. but it keeps the i7 happy so a little longer. right now im installing vista because i really didnt like 7 as the primary os on my desktop its still very beta imo. so ill keep it on my laptop.
w00t keep climbing
208x21 1.45v set in BIOS, try that Should give you about 1.512v in windows. Just to validtae, I dont run that all day.
4.2GHz @ 1.375V on air as per screen capture above. Hyperthreading is enabled. Fully stable in all 3DMarks except Vantage where it keeps giving me "Application lost focus or display resolution changed". Weird, I can do several loops of 3DMark 2006 but Vantage crashes and gives me that error every single time. I'm thinking it has to do with my GPU OC.
Lot of tweaking left to do. My CPU responds to VTT voltage increases very well. CPU voltage has little effect on it.
^^^thats a very good clock ! try running vantage with video card at default clocks see if you get the same error message
CP can i have a voltage layout plz? i cant seem to get my rig to run stable. i want all the voltages under the voltage page if you dont mind.
Sol, love your processor. I can't believe I haven't posted in this forever and I started it. LOL.
lol thanks man im loving it too...she has some probs at 4.2 but 4 and 4.1 are solid. i just need to know CP's voltage table..he can do it much lower than me. i think ill try adjusting the vtt because my core is 1.475 and at 4.2 anything heavy is a joke and things start to crash like super fetch sidebar etc.
@Dark is your ram really at 1.9v? i thought anything over 1.65 was crazy dangerous.
I can bench at 4.3GHz, just found that out tonight, had windows open so loop was extra cold. Hopefully you'll get things working better.
i benched 4.4ghz
not posting the results yet.
my new cooler setup allows me to use high vcore without temps getting too high even under load.
is your ram really that high 1.9?
