HELP with I7 920 + Asus P6t Deluxe

hey guys heres my set up:



i7 920
OCZ StealthXStream OCZ700 PS
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2
COOLER MASTER V8
G.SKILL 6GB DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260
windows 7 rc1

right now its in a basic case with the side open....but it will soon to be moved in to a
COOLER MASTER HAF 932 once i get it on monday....anyways im been trying like crazy to OC this thing for like 2 days now
i read just about every thread about OCing the i7 with this mobo ...and set everything as others said..but still it crashes if i set BCLK Freq to 200 then it wont even post...i got it in to windows with these settings as recomend by a user called
gatorbill

is there anything im missing??

now with the settings like this im getting a BSoD when trying to load windows...if im lucky enough to get it in there it will crash as asoon i run prime95 and CPU-z/Realtemp tells me all my cores are in the 40sC and im running about 3.7 or about 3.8...

i would like to get this CPU to stay in about the 3.7's as i do HDvideo editing in Premier Pro /After effects ...games are cool but not my goal ...
anyone with a set up like this has any advice ? i read just about every webpage there is about Ocing the i7 (theres alot) most even talk about this mobo...but always ends in failing :pfff:
thanks for your help guys

  1. Hi,
    I think you get those setting on a forum , where I get mine. When I tried it I have problem too. I update my bios on my p6t v2, I can go now to 3.95 stable, but too play safe I run it at 3.67. Solve all my ocing problem. But there a downside doing that move , some people got problem with the update and loose thing after the upgrade, audio hdd. I my case I loose nothing maybe i'm lucky.

    THanks
  2. Ill head over to asus and check out that update thanks!!, so after the update do you still have all the settings i posted? if not pls let me know how your got your set up :)
    i would like to see it go to 3.95 too...but most likely like you will keep it about 3.6/7

    as for the update could you pls link me where you saw ppl are loosing audio? i would like to read more on that...i use optical right now for the audio if that matters...

    thanks again for ur reply!!
  3. I too am having a difficult time OC'ing. I seem to require much higher voltages than others are reporting to achieve stability. The best stable config I've gotten is 3.6GHz - but I see so many reports of achieving 4GHz.

    Additionally, I seem to have sporadic boot problems. my system will post, then go to windows loading screen, then go black and never make it to the windows logon screen. After a minute or so, I will get 1 beep. If I reset the system, it will usually boot and run stable. Not sure if this is an OC issue, or a motherboard/Ram/GPU issue.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Derek

    PS:
    - I first test my memory settings by configuring a low (12x) CPU multiplier and moderate CPU voltages
    - Then I test my CPU by reducing the memory multiplier (via the DRAM CLK setting) and using known good DRAM bus voltages

  4. wow your setting of
    CPU V - 1.45
    does sound a bit much ,in no forums i read going above 1.35 , but i to get the issue where the screen goes black where should post and not boot in to windows, then once a force restart it will work,then the cpu gets reset to 2.66
    still dont know what the right settings are :(
  5. Tom's hardware had some configs where they set CPU voltage as high as 1.5: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/overclock-core-i7,2268-3.html

    But most other posts indicate as low as 1.35 should be plenty for up to 4GHz. I would expect some system-system variation, and not all cpu/board combos to be the same. But 1.35 to 1.5 is a pretty large variation. My current understanding is - as long as you have a solid cooler to keep the temps down it's ok to run higher voltages. But I try to keep them as low as I can.

    Besides the boot issue, my biggest concern is why my system seems to differ from the majority of them and require more volts...
  6. Thanks for Bumping my thread..im really hoping for an answer for my issue....

    i would really like to be able to keep my cpu @ anywhere from 3.6/7 ..but like i said i can OC it but once i seem to run a program that requires more cpu power my system crashes..mostly with a BSoD

    it's in chinese but you can still see the photo that i oced to 200/2000 with ease
    http://uwants.com/viewthread.php?tid=8051696
    here's my settings:


    Ai Overclock Tuner => Manual
    Intel Speed Step Tech => Enabled
    Intel Turbo Tech => Enabled
    CPU Ratio => Auto
    BCLK Freq => 200
    PCIE Freq => 100
    DRAM Freq => DDR3-2005MHz
    UCLK Freq => 4009
    QPI Link Data Rate =>72xx(x36)

    Voltages
    -----------
    CPU Voltage => 1.45
    CPU PLL Voltage => 1.80
    QPI/DRAM Core Voltage => 1.65
    DRAM Bus Voltage => 1.82
    hope it helps
  8. thanks for the reply ryanytchan...i gotta admmit 4.2Ghz is a bit more then what i need lol....i was looking for some where in the rang of 3.6.
    but for shyt's and giggles i thought i would give it a try...but my options differ from yours...
    for DRam Frq i can get
    1113MHz
    1483MHz
    1854MHz
    2226MHz
    2596MHz
    2967MHz

    and for UCLK i cant get 4009.. closest thing i have is
    3895MHz & 4080MHz

    QPI Link Data Rate i can get
    6677MT/s
    8159MT/s
    8902MT/s

    not sure why....
    with the options i have do you have any recommendations to get to 3.6 stable?

    Thanks again for your help!!

    Thanks again for your help!!

    you need 200 bclk to get those settings
    i am using p6t delux v2
    3.6G i guess you could go for 180bclk or 200
    for 180 you won't need that much voltage for qpi
    200bclk*18=3.6Ghz
    what's you ram again?1600?
  10. yea its G.SKILL 6GB DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
  11. crazyjoezx said:

    try using lower qpi until you get it stable
    try the settings above first and see if it work
    just make sure your ram is running on 1333 cause memory modules in this speed isn't designed for overclocking
    if you want better bandwidth i suggest you work on timings
  12. off: i get that black screen too but without any oc.... why is that ? :((( i tryed vista, w7.. in all i get the same problem and i need to restart 1 or 2 times for the windows to work right... :(....

    on: I have the same configuration and i got to 4ghz and a 3.8 stable with this conf:

    Ai OC tuner : manual
    cpu ratio 19
    bclk 200
    pcie 100
    dram 1600
    uclk 3200
    qpi link auto
    vcore: 1.27 (1.30)
    pll 1.88
    qpi/dram v 1.3 (1.325)
    ioh v 1.2
    ioh pcie v 1.5
    ich v 1.2
    ich pcie v 1.5
    vdimm 1.6
    dram dat auto
    dram ctrl auto
    llc enabled
    cpu amplitude 800
    cpu clk skew normal
    ioh clk skew normal
    spectrum disabled
    hw prefetch enabled
    cache prefe enabled
    virtualization enabled
    cpu tm enabled
    exec disa bit enabled
    ht enabled
    active cores all
    a20m disabled
    dram timing 7-8-7-20 (mine is cl7 , depends on your ram.. its not that important)
    timing mode 1n (this is important)
    rest 1st info auto
    2nd and 3rd info auto

    You can play with your vcore and qpi/dram voltages a little :)
    the max for vcore is 1.35 (dont go that far :P )
    max for vuncore is 1.45 (no problem at all running at 1.35)
    dram must stay at 1.65 but in this MB u cant sellect that value so go for 1.66 or 1.64

    Good luck!
