    Default 920 overclock issues and questions

    I have a ASUS P6T WS Pro MB, 920 2.66GHZ OC'd to 3.8GHz, 6G GSkill DDR3 1333, Titan cooler and XP Pro 64...

    Ok, so after many, many, many hours of pounding my head on the keyboard, this is what I have come up with:

    CPU Ratio 19
    Speedstep Enable
    BCLK freq 200
    PCIE freq 100
    DRAM freq Auto
    UCLK freq Auto
    QPI data link rate Auto
    CPU V 1.15
    CPU PLL V 1.8
    QPI/DRAM V 1.4
    IOH 1.10
    IOH PCIE V 1.5
    ICH V 1.2
    ICH PCIE V 1.5
    DRAM Bus 1.5
    Load line cal Enable

    All else set to Auto

    DRAM timing 7-7-7-21 1N

    CPUZ data:

    Bus speed 200Mhz
    QPI link 3600MHz
    NB freq 3200MHz
    DRAM freq 600Mz
    FSB:RAM 2:6

    Passes Prime95. 41deg at idle and 70deg testing. Drops 2deg when I take the case side off, which tells me I need another 120mm pusher. Now for the questions since I'm new to this fun....

    Is this a 'good' setup in terms of voltages to speed to running temps?

    Is the CPUZ data for the RAM good? (speed wise is it fast for GSkill DDR3 1333)

    I've been reading on the RAM overclocking and I kind of get the gist, but don't really understand what I have done. If I try and enter a value for DRAM or UCLK freq or QPI link rate, CRASH!!! Da 'puter she no go.

    Last issue... During boot up, I have a 25 second delay from the end of BIOS to when the hard drive spins up and another 30-33 seconds to the log on screen. It didn't do this running stock and it started before I started changing the DRAM timing. Is this a 'normal' side effect of overclocking? I wouldn't think so. I've disable everything on start up, defrag'd and cleaned up the HD, tweeked the registry and lost the splash screen to get to this point. Anything else I should be looking at?

    I don't know much about overclocking, not a expert but I will say my own experiences.

    After i got my TEC chiller, On first attempt I went for 4ghz, using 200 blck as 20x mutli, set everything else as auto. It was stable. the temps was reasonable, 33-35c on idle.

    It's bit weird for me because I keep seeing others say they have problems, they had to spend whole day tinking setting to proper stable set, Not for me.

    Where did you get your TEC Chiller? I've been contemplating building on. The first on I built only had a 1-2deg drop on the temp.

    Didable speedstep, turbo and all power saving features. Increase CPU volts. I would start with most settings on auto. Loosen memory timings.

    temps are normal for air cooler at 3.8Ghz

    screen shot would be nice

    read our i7 Overclocking Guide

    wrong RAM setting cause the delay.

    don't have to be TJ07, any case with (at least) 8" depth will be fine.
