Clear the CMOS
and try 1 stick only
Got it! Tried removing all the ram but 1 stick, neither of the blue slots it would post, so i put the ram in the white slot, one stick posted, 2 sticks posted, 3 stricks posted! Look's like the white slot's are the ticket. Already cleared CMOS also.
yeah white slots is what you need for 3 sticks according to the manual
incase you didnt get manual with board http://europe.asrock.com/manual/X58 Extreme.pdf
Just tried OC'ing the Q6600. I'm confused at the BIOs. Whats the relation between FSB and clock speed?
Obviously FS x Multiplier does not equal clock speed, because FSB is 1066, multiplier is 9 and clock speed is 2.4Ghz.
Also, further below, why is CPU voltage at 0.0000?
Thanks bro! Yeah i got the full retail version except for the manual Im booting into windows right now actually
What happens if i want to add another 6gb kit later with this board? Am i able to put that kit in the blue slots on my mobo and run everything as tri channel?
Set it to 1600 for a 400mhz fsb and 1333 for 333mhz. 1800 for 450 fsb.
You seem to be having better luck than I, mine seems to only post sporaticly, and then doesn't like to boot into windows.banghead:
I have seriously just about had it with Gigabyte.
That was in response to xbonez question with my old mobo So far my i7 rig is running great though! Im actually up and booted right now. Ahh the look of 8 cores in task manager! I think my e-peen is definitely erect right now
are you running same memory on the boards?
what about the chip?
yep just put those in the blue slots, its only when using 3 sticks it has to be the white, kinda the same as with Gigabyte Boards
Ahh show's my noobness to 1366
Memory and the chip are the same from the last setup some of the parts were recycled from, and they were both 24/7 stable, it also doesn't explain the sporadic POST.
move the ram to the outside bank.
Holy shit guys! Check this out! Look at that vcore Completely stable also. I think im gonna have a great clocking chip. Knock on wood
Trying that now.
Anybody have some good guides to oc'ing 1366 chips? I basically wanna hit 4.0. Cooling should be good also. Ran IBT and maxed at 58C so i have some head room
Seems to boot into windows okay now, but still POST's randomly, my only geuss is when I restart Windows it doesn't shutdown properly, perhaps windows is corrupted.
Well then, try a fresh isntall?
I'm going I was procrastinating, oh well I need to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 on this harddrive anyway.
But I am going to let it do all it's backingupystuffz thingy, sinc ebecause this machine has been down a week a some of my media is not backed up ATM.
IIRC with that board, you have some OC settings pre-loaded in the BIOS so start with that and tweak your settings once you get a stable run. I suggest you start at 3.6Ghz and work your way up
This is an excellent guide to OC'ing the 920. Explains what to do and the mechanisms behind everything.
Thanks man! Ill start working on that now. Does my vcore look good at stock?
Also did you manage to figure out your BIOS settings from my post?
All working ATM will re-install Windows tommarow.
I'm still confused about the voltage showing as 0.00000.
yeah i was confused on that also. Basically 0.00000 is your VID. +.250 is added that much voltage. I think for 3.6 i had to add +2.75V to be completely stable while folding at 3.6. I could use less voltage in any other task but then with folding i had to add more. Also i noticed that the NB and VTT FSB voltage needed alot. I just maxed those out as temps were fine on the board but i also had a 40mm fan mounted on the NB.
That board needs quite a bit of voltage for OC's but as long as temps are good it's fine.
Just got done doing some p90x and i need to play some black op's! I've been dying to play the game and now that my rig is finished, i need to play a couple rounds of zombies quick. Ill try OC'ing a little later or may just try tomorrow. I'll see how tired i am later
It feels good to be on a good rig again! Im just hoping my PSU will handle everything. I have loaded the cpu 100% but not either graphics card and the CPU yet.
