    Default Overclock Help!

    Hey guys, Just want some help overclocking my i7 950 to 4gz or over. I have read the guides on this site and have a basic idea of whats going on, but i really really appreciate if someone could look at my rig and tell me what exact settings i need to change for my desired 4gz overclock.

    Also anyone who has a similar rig to me please post some screens-shots of your setting so i know what i need to do, Just look at my spec's to see more details.


    Cheers

    Hey pal, welcome to pure oc.

    while we can't give you the exact specs, as all parts OC differently, we can give you some general guidelines. once we get Deton or Drdeath in here, you'll have 4ghz in no time

    Go to the CPU overclocking section on our forum. I posted screen shots of my bios settings from my i7 930 with X58 UD3 board @ 4.5GHz stable. Remember, I have custom watercooling and you will not be able to get as high.

    The 950 has a higher multi (23X). Use 23X for the multi. 1.3-1.35V should get you there(4.0GHz). Disable turbo and all power saving features.

    Keep temps under 80 under load. Use LinX or Prime95. Min 25 passes on LinX(25,000 problems) or 4 hour on Prime95 to ensure stability.

    Can you link me to the page with that bios screenshot?

    Also does anyone know if after i set the CPU Voltage to 1.35 can i start moving up the BCLK up until i get to 4gz? or do i have to set everything else manually as-well?

    Yea i need something like that, But for the i7 950. Because it would be alot different for me with a CPU CLK of 23

    So set clock ratio to 23 and start with a BCLK of 175 for a speed of 4025 and tweak the voltages until you know the minimums then add maybe 2 steps.

    With this knowledge you can then try upping BCLK 5 or so at a time and finding the stable voltage for each setting just watch the Temps

    There is a whole load of good knowledge to be had by reading the guide Core i7 4Ghz Club & Overclocking Guide where you will gain the things you need to know to do this properly. I may be a pain cos it is a big thread but you will be glad you did.

    Yea i read though quite alot of that thread but i still don't fully understand how everything works.

    Does this look good?

    BCLK Frequency 175Mhz

    CPU Voltage 1.35v

    DRAM Frequency - 1,600MHz

    CPU PLL Voltage 1.96v (I read that 1.96v is fine, but not sure what it's for exactly)

    QPI/DRAM Voltage - 1.35v

    DRAM Frequency - 1,600MHz

    CPU PLL Voltage 1.96v (I read that 1.96v is fine, but not sure what it's for exactly)

    QPI/DRAM Voltage - 1.35v

    If your sure why are you using it? 1.8V is fine. on PLL

    Copying will get you close but no two chips need same bios settings....TAKE TURBO OFF and use 1.3V to start on CPU. I needed 1.375 for 4.3v so you may be a lil high on Vcore. LLC level 2....

    Thanks, i haven't made any changes yet, still waiting on my h70 to come before i start OCing. So i have no idea what LLC level 2 does, mind filling me in? also do i NEED to change it?

    hey doood... i had a ex58-ud5 and overclocked my i7965 with it for a year or so. 4.0 was super easy and 4.2 was more difficult.
    heres what i did....

    1) Find your max Bclk. With default setting on mobo and all power saving shnizz turned off start upping the base clock until the thing crashes. Back it off from that and there you go! For 4.0 you can leave HT on but Id turn off the the Turbos.

    2) You only need to adjust your Vcore and qpi vtt. For all the voltages type in manually what it says it wants to be as opposed to just leaving it on auto.

    3) Now you should be around 23 x 168. Up the multi to 24 and start increasing the vcore and qpivtt until its stable. vcore 1.3 - 1.35 perhaps. Usually Ive found that its not the vcore thats making it unstable but moreso the qpivtt, either it wants to be a bit higher than the vcore or equal or a little less. youll have to play with it and see. with the UD5 it wanted to be a little less but with this RAmpageIII it wants to be more. I dunno.

    4) Uncore Multiplier must be at least 2 times the Memory Multiplier.

    5) BSOD ERRORS... 0X0000050 = incorrect memory timings/ freq/ or uncore multi
    0x00000124 = too high or low qpivtt voltage
    0x00000101 = too low vcore

    6) To get to 4.2 i found that with a IOH Core of 1.18 it was more happy but that was just me.

    Good luck dood write back if theres anything else..

    PS... If its going to crash itll do it within the first 30 mins so Id say one hour PRIME is good enough.

    Ok got my 4ghz now, But is there any way to turn up the speeds of my case fans? one plugged straight into psw, 2 plugged into the board and the 2 on the h70. Because i am getting max temps or mid 80's while running prime.

    Those temps are a little high... I would not push the chup any farther.
