Hi!

My specs:

Intel Core i7 930 D0 с Zalman CNPS10x Performa
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0(last bios version)
Kingston 4GB 1333MHZ CL9(one stick)
Windows 7 SP1 x64

My overclocked cpu does not pass Prime 95 Small FFTs test and crashes with bsod after 10 seconds - 15 minutes
I would like to know that it is possible to fix or change something in my configuration..

P.S. Sorry for my bad english

I'm guessing you found someone's settings on the net and just set your to the same.

You should read this before doing anything else http://www.overclock.net/t/538439/guide-to-overclocking...
I found to issues with what you have posted, one not so big the other is most likely the cause of the problem. Once you read the guide you will figure it out.

Tnx for guide!

This is not just a copy, I changed some settings, so I ask, what errors they probably could contain

I know this is the internet and you can read this anyway you want but I'm going to try and not be a dick about this.

Little background: I had and still have a i7 950 ( sitting on the shelf since last upgrade ) The first gen I series are a little harder to overclock then the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gen cpus. I started with an i7 950 and an asus rampage 3 extreme MB, not really knowing what I was doing just changing settings and before I knew it frying the motherboard. That was a $400 lesson I was not willing to risk again. Spent the next weeks reading any and every guide to learn what I did wrong and how to fix it. By the time I was done I had it running stable @ 4.82ghz on a custom water loop, dong it the right way took almost a month of testing and fine tuning the settings.


With that being said I can give you the answer you want but you might not like the outcome. There are many variables that I don't know about your setup. Air cooler for your cpu, air flow inside the case, how well your ram will handle an overclock, & block limit on the cpu (mine was 214). If you want to do it the right way your going to need to dedicate some time to it. Set everything back to stock, leaving the voltage alone bump the block up by 2or 3 points and run a few hours of prime 95 or 10 loops of intel burn test, Keep core temp or some other temp monitor open and watch your cpu temps. keep repeating this till it fails on the stock voltage, once it does bump the voltage by .05 and continue raising the block.

**** remember that all cpus are not created equal **** at some point the MHz to volts will change and you will need to add a lot more volts to gain .1 mhz. My 950 ran at 4.2mhz with 1.32volts to get to 4.8mhz I need 1.6volts
