    Default i7 950 noob help (slightly different)

    Hi all, i am new here so would like to say a big hello and thanks for reading.
    Now i have looked over the forum for some answers as i have the whole net but i cant seem to get close to my specs for a guide so appologies for asking for help with yet another 950 oc.

    Firstly i know NOTHING about oc'ing but i would love to learn and get my self built pc to 4GHz. When i built my system i did set in mind that oneday i would dabble with oc'ing it, well i am now brave enough to try with your help and guidance.

    My system spec are :-

    Gigabyte X58-USB3 Unlocked MB
    i7 950 CPU
    Corsair H80 Hydro series liquid cooled CPU cooler
    24gig DDR3 1600MHz Tripple Channel Corsair Vengeance
    Corsair HX 850 Pro modular PSU
    XFX ATI Radeon 1gig DDR5 GPU
    Aero 2000 Touch screen fan controller
    3x 120mm CoolerMaster sickle flow blue LED fans
    1x 140mm CoolerMaster sickle flow blue LED fan
    Antec 300 full ATX case
    2x 1TB Samsung F3 HDD
    CD Optical drive

    At the moment i have the H80 set to position one so if i were to achieve 4GHz should i set it to postion 2 or 3 ? above all else i need to stress how green i am regarding terms etc so i would greatly appreciate your patients with that
    I have read a few guides like i said but i really need help with a guide specifically for my hardware i already have as i dont want to purchase or upgrade any more then i have thus far so if you think 4GHz is reachable then great but if you feel less would be more stable i will go with your knowledge whatever.

    I have also downloaded Prime95 (64) Core temp and cpuz, anything else just let me know.

    Right enough babbling lol thanks for reading and i look forward to starting this project.

    Kind regards,

    Lee.

    P.S. I use my PC for 3D modeling and animation using mainly 3DsMAX 2012 and Poser Pro 2012 so while these programs are rendering my work they can be doing so for days.... like anything from 2 hours to 2 -5 days depending on the project i am working on, while rendering it uses the CPU at 100% so thats a lot of max load for quite often a long time.

    Make sure you know how to reset your BIOS if it wont boot.

    Hardware for OCing usually doesn't make a huge difference the biggest things are cooling, MB and processor. MBs usually offer the same options, cooling limits how hot you can run and the processor does have its own limits. First you have to turn off power saving features and Turbo Boost in the BIOS. Next raise the CPU multiplier by 1. Now comes the overclocking, you want to move the BCLK frequency up about 20 then raise the core voltage by the smallest step your board will let you do. Now save and exit, if windows starts then run prime95 for half an hour to an hour if it BSoDs raise your core voltage one step. All the while monitor your core temp, with your processor I wouldn't let it got over 70C but 75C is still safe. Repeat until you reach 4GHz stable.

    Nono Polo. Set ur Multiplier to 21 or 23 as the 950's like odd multi's/ Slowly raise BCLK and test with prime 95 for 15 min. If it passes, raise BLCK 2-5 and retest. When it fails, raise Vcore. keep load temps under 75 your golden. reference vcore 1.35 should get ya 4GHz +. If the temps are too high back vcore down. Leave the other voltages on auto for now. Disable C1E, C6 and Turbo. Visit our 4GHz club too.

    Core i7 4Ghz Club & Overclocking Guide

    there are a lot of settings to look at in this thread...

    start with load optimal settings and re-boot into bios then write down all the voltages that auto gives you.


    step1. Overclocking to manual, cpu volts to the same figure that was given to you by the board using the auto settings, everything else to auto except as noted below

    turn off EIST, C1E, and all other C-states.

    set your cpu clock ratio to 15

    set your mem multi to 6

    set uncore clock to 16

    set ioh core to 1.15v

    set qpi/vtt to 1.2v

    set bclock to 150

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________

    Step 2. looking for a stable bclock with a target of 200

    reboot the system with the above settings and when you get back into windows run realtemp and cpuz and check the temperature then the voltage you get in cpu-z compared to bios (note the difference) then re-boot and adjust the voltage for cpu to what will be the auto number but this time in cpu-z.

    When back into windows run either LinX or Intelburntest for 3 passes using Maximum mem. If this passes OK change the bclock to 160 and repeat keeping a close watch that the temps do not exceed 85-90 deg. keep increasing the bclock until you get to 200. If at any time you get a BSOD (blue screen of death) or a lock up ... increase the qpi/vtt voltage by 2 steps and repeat the test.

    at the end of this test you will know that your rig is capable of the bclock you set and that if you have a problem this is unlikely to be it.

    __________________________________________________ ________________________________________

    Step 3. Adding memory to the mix

    I should perhaps have mentioned this before but if you have not already done so, set the memory voltage and the primary timings to the manufacturers settings in bios

    Take your bclock back down to 150

    Make your memory multiplier x8

    Repeat the testing as we did before gradually increasing the bclock back to 200. Again if you get a failure at any stage (and with 24 gig I think you will), you will need to increase qpi.vtt. It is possible that you may get to the point where you are approaching the maximum safe qpi/vtt voltage which is said to be around 1.45v. if that is the case then maybe re-think what speed you are aiming for and how you will achieve it ( we can discuss this if need be)

    __________________________________________________ ____________________________________

    Step 4. CPU overclocking (finally) By carrying out the above procedures we know that both the bclock and the memory speed are achievable so we now can concentrate on the cpu alone

    Turn on load line calibration ... this may have more than one option if so pick level 2 (more on this if we need to)

    Turn off Turbo mode

    set cpu clock ratio to 20

    and set bclock to (guess what) 150

    The procedure is the same as before increasing the bclock 5-10 at a time till you get to 200 except this time if you get a failure you need to raise the cpu volts by 0.025v before testing again. During this testing you need to keep a close watch on your temperatures. If adding cpu volts does not help, pay attention to the number shown on screen during the bsod and reference it to the list here. tell us about this if it happens

    There is a whole bunch more to this but to get you going try this procedure... don't rush or take short cuts just take the time to get to know your rig

    Oh yeah, before you start get to know how to clear cmos and load optimal defaults.... just in case you run into trouble along the way

    and do yourself a favour... write down each of the changes you make each step of the way so that you can easily get back to the settings that worked last.

    Good luck

    Daytime EDIT: There are a number of ways for you to reach 4.0... some even allow you to run your ram at spec speed or near. If you run into problems or find that things are a little hot, post back in here and we can explore some alternatives.

    Use the odd multi.

    Tried both before widely documented.

    Well if I start having problems I will, right now it runs fine. Unless of course an even multi could be damaging to the processor.

    EDIT: Actually that may be why I would need such extreme voltages to get it to a stable 5GHz, I will try it sometime.

    WOW !!!! if thats explaining things in easy terms then i am F**cked ;p lol lol lol i think i better print this off and read it 20 times before even rebooting to the bios
    I arent afraid to admit that this is way deeper then i first thought, but...... am a try'er so i wont be put off by all the volts, amps etc..... baby steps like GrumpyDaddy explained.
    I will endevour to firstly undersatnd all what you lot just said and then put into practice just that.

    I better make a lot of lists of things before i start along with some photos of my bios in default mode me thinks ;p

    Thanks peeps, i sort of feel confident knowing your all watching and ready to help me out of a bsod pile of doo doo hahahahah sence of humour much needed me thinks.

    I will post back tomorrow with my first attempts.

    You should probably try the max setting, then if its cool enough at 4GHz you can back it down. And remember as long as your below 75C while running Prime95 your golden.
