    Default New to overclocking, looking for stability

    Howdy everyone,

    First I would like to say I'm new to the forums here but I have been scanning and reading and wracking my brain over a lot of information regarding not just overclocking my system, but setting up the standard bios clocks for standard output (without using the awful "auto" option). With that said, I recently upgraded my video cards and in the process of trying to force them to manually clock at the speeds I want, I get 2 different types of BSODs that your site states could be related to VCORE. As of right now, my bios is set practically to default, with the exception of my 4 primary memory clocks and the frequency of said memory. Without trying to get screenshots of the bios the hard way, ill be happy to post a picture of my voltages as seen by E-LEET. Let me know if there is anything else you need and thank you VERY much in advance for your help!

    I have filled out my PC specs in my profile for your viewing... pleasure????

    Hi Chronomega and welcome to PureOC

    The process of getting a stable overclock can take days depending on how you go about it and with 12Gig of ram fitted it will be a little harder/slightly lower clock maybe.

    Personally I would start by finding the limits of each part of your system one at a time then build up to what will be your final overclock. On an i7 950 this will probably be limited by heat rather than what your cpu can do but.... What is your target speed, if you have one? Would you be interested in learning how to do this properly or are you just wanting a higher clock on this? Let us know and we will go from there.

    As of right now, I would like to learn some good solid settings to release myself from using the Auto feature in the BIOS because I've heard it can be quite wrong. But as a hardcore gamer, I would love to push this thing as far as its willing to go. While it would be a dream to hit the 4.0 club, i would be happy to at least get a stable push to 3.5 for now, just to know I can.

    And thanks again for the response

    EDIT: Also upgrading my CPU cooler would not be an issue to reach these goals. I hate the one of have now as it is so tall, it prevents me from closing the side of my case. I saw the recommendations for the H70 and might take that leap, unless you have any recommendations otherwise.

    I'm assuming you have read the OC guide and browsing the 4Ghz club and still don't understand how to do it?

    You were saying that you was trying to overclock your new two GPU and got BSOD, then it has nothing to do with the CPU.

    You can overclock the 950 to 3.8ghz no problem with a blink of your eyelashes . I know you don't want to use Auto setting but you don't have to manually change everything. You gotta to start it at somewhere.

    As for cooler; Noctua NH-D14 is one of the best for air and H70 for H20 sealed kit.

    Until you have better cooler, for now just try OC to 3.6Ghz shall we?

    Leave everything on Auto for now but accept BCLK and CPU Ratio; change the Bclk to 160 and ratio to 950's specs (23x). Boot into windows take the screen shot at the Voltage, temperature for load/idle and post it here along with you BIOS settings.

    also don't forget to read some other threads how to OC the 950, we have a few of them laying around.

    I have read through them and get a general feel for how to overclock, but with the amount of issues I have had trying to get this computer stable with new hardware, sometimes a guiding hand is a little more comforting. I will certainly be happy to read through the guides again and see what I can come across that I may have not understood. I will also try your recommendations too. Should I set board back to defaults or should i leave my memory clocks and frequency at the recommended settings on the sticks (2:12 8-8-8-24 1.6v)?

    leave it at its specs and if it has XMP profile then use it.

    Thank you for the advice. I am currently at work so unfortunately I won't be able to make these changes until tonight however I will be sure to make these first few changes and post my updates as I go. I have been looking for BIOS spec posts that match my same motherboard but I haven't been able to find anyone so far. Seems a lot of people have the Rampage or Sabertooth. So if you know anyone or have seen any posts with a breakdown of the EVGA X58 SLi 3 E767 let me know and I'll check them out. I'm sure it's been posted I'm just having a terrible time finding it. This computer is my most expensive baby and I'm nervous to do something wrong.

    EDIT: Also on a side note, I just ordered all new case fans to replace most of my dead fans, and sprung for an H70 to begin my overclocking journey. I figured the ambient temperatures in my room always sit a little high. 26-32c ambient temperatures.

    Ok I tried the first recommendation of enabling XMP for my memory, and setting BCLK to 160, leaving CPU at 23x. I couldn't even get the BIOS to post.

    I also noticed that with Intel Speedstep enabled, my cpu multiplier was forcing itself to 24x, even when set to 23x. When I disabled speedstep, I was at least able to get to the Windows load screen, but then it crashed. No BSOD.

    I'm going to keep throwing edits on here as I'm playing around. I tried setting BCLK to 150 and left my CPU at 23x. Idle temps show around 47c. Prime runs for about 5 seconds before throwing an x124 code. From what I read, that means my next adjustment should be QPI/VTT voltage up or down.

    ok so you changed to 160 Bclk and XMP profile but you didn't change the mem frequency to its specs which it is 1600Mhz. The mem speed was out of wack that is why it didn't post. Even now you have it runs at 1804Mhz, you just overclocked the RAM.

    You should run RAM at specs until you get the CPU stabled before you attempt to OC the memory. Also you have 12Gb of RAM therefore QPI voltage should be must higher than your current value.

    What I did this time is changed the BCLK to 160 and changed Memory frequency to 2:10 which sets me at 1603MHz. Unless I'm missing something here that at least gets me to post but when windows starts to load it restarts with no BSOD. Also when you say I need a big increase in QPI, what type of increase are we talking about. 1.250? 1.3?

    Ok, after sitting down and relaxing and testing a few things, I have made a few slight changes that have allowed me to get into windows and I am able to test for 5 minutes in prime without errors. I made the following adjustments to my above voltages.

    CPU VTT Voltage: [Auto] +200mV <---- Auto decided to set to +0 now.
    QPI PLL VCore: [Auto] 1.100V <------- Set from Auto to 1.2V
    Memory Frequency: Auto <----------- Set from Auto to 2:10
    Target Memory Frequency: 1804MHz <-------- The above change landed me at 1603MHz
    CPU Host Frequency: 133 <--------- Set from 133 to 160
    Target CPU Frequency: 3687MHz
    Target Memory Frequency: 1603MHz
    CPU Uncore Frequency(MHz): [Auto] <--------- Set from Auto to x20 3206MHz

    I am going to run Prime for a couple of hours to see if everything stays stable with good temperatures. If so, I'm more than willing to step it up a little bit from here as long as it stays within good temperatures.



    For now though, I am heading to bed. Last day of work for the week and plenty of weekend to do some overclocking! Thanks again for dealing with my impatience.

    Ok! so I had the opportunity over the weekend so far to test with some heavy gaming to see how well these clock speeds are holding up. Good news is, I have had no problems with the CPU. No BSOD or lockups. Temps stay pretty stable around 65c during gameplay. As soon as my new fans and H70 come in on Tuesday, I'll get them installed and prepare for the next step. I have a pretty decent idea of what to do next but be sure to keep an eye out as I may have more questions. Although from here, the other posts may be more than sufficient unless I run into an strange problems.

    Thanks again for all the help!

    5 min of prime is not stable. Unstable ssyems have the potential to corrupt the operating system.

    I never actually updated later on with new pictures and information but I prime tested for 2 hours and 15 minutes and temperatures maxed out at 71c.
