    Default Need help getting to 1866

    So i called EVGA earlier in the day and they said maybe a future bios update will help... But anyways here we go

    Evga X58 mobo with the latest bios SZ1C
    i7 965 at stock speeds for now,
    12gb total of Corsair TR3X6G1866C9DF @ 1.65v
    3 9800GTX's waiting to see what else comes out of Nvidia, and no i will never go ATi
    2 300gb raptors in RAID 0


    ok so when i set the uncore to either 28, 29, or 30 and then the mem freq to 2:14 and the bclock is at 133 it wont post. even i try and settle for 1600 still wont post. Just a dead black screen, but it will post and boot at 1333.

    P.S. Skyguy sent me...

    Had some money to burn, eh Sav?

    I don't have the EVGA board so the BIOS settings will be different from my ASUS, but I know that several voltages needed to be tweaked, and the QPI Frequency had to be manually set to 4.8GT/s or whatever it was, otherwise complete crash and no boot.

    Take a look at this link, they OC'd an EVGA X58 pretty high, see if you can get some settings from there. In the meantime, I'll do some more research.........

    Do you guys with X58 realise you have started speaking another language with new terms like Qpi and uncore and the like.

    Seems there are very few similarities to the old.

    Ya they are different, that's for sure. Alot more things to tweak. But once you get the hang of it, it's much easier. I'm gonna try getting a guide done soon for the forums.

    Jacob will help you if you ask him to, what memory are you using now, and are you using the latest bios ?

    its the corsair dominator 1866 tri-channel

    ok update. i got it but it was a bit tricky. Instead of setting the divider to 2:14 like normally. Set it to 2:10 set the uncore to 20, set the clock ratio to 20 and then up the bclock to 186. tinker with the voltages. and boom she post and boots. Eleet reports the Dram frq at 930. So nice to play around further with the CPU. Its only at 3.7 right now. Now my question is should i just up the Multiplier or the bclock?

    Great to hear! A few more on the Blck should do the trick.

    Overclocking is so much more........fun.........now on these i7's, isn't it? LOL. Frustrating.

    What are you running for a cooler ? you really should fill in your system specs to help us out a little bit lol I also own the 965 so I do know how hot it can get when overclocked. You should try the new Domino ALC, around $79 or if you have the extra cash, go with the Elite, or Boreas Chiller. $300 and up.

    Go easy with the Vcore, and do NOT go more than 1.65 on your memory, you might me able to go a little past 1.65v, but they advise against it. Jake, what is the highest you went with your memorys voltage ?

    He's running a Swiftech liquid setup I believe.

    I'm still learning to OC the RAM......CPU, not a problem. RAM.....multipliers, frequencies all linked......much more difficult.

    Yea its a swiftech liquid cool setup. temps at idle are like 25 C. Under load in prime they jump to about 38 C then they start going down cause the tests drop off in prime95.

    I feel so uneasy now...all my i7 stuff are staring at me everyday and i cant put them together all becos of the i7 GTZ retention bracket...i've been doing lots of reading to ready myself for the i7 overclocking party

    Savage...since u are using liquid cooling u can bump up yr vcore to 1.4 to see if you can get to 4.0ghz no experience to confirm this but there are many articles i've read for the i7 to reach 4.0ghz 1.4vcore is the way to go u can read gigabyte's step by step article as a guide on what to execute to achieve 4ghz OC

    The other thing Sav can do it just leave his BLCK at 133 and jack up the multiplier since his is unlocked on the 965 Extreme. Piece of cake, will probably barely need to touch core voltage.

    I'm having a $##%^@ of a time trying to get this RAM to run at its rated 2000Mhz speed. It's just too much juice, unless you're using DICE or LN2 it's not really needed. 1600MHz is more than plenty for i7 and overclocking for mere mortals.
