Antec 1200 - Corsair HX1000 -Asus 6PT Deluxe V2 - i7 920 @ 2.67GHz - OCZ XMP Ready Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - 4890 - XIGMATEK Dark Knight-S1283V

Anyone have a simlar setup as me? What are your overclock settings? I want to get it to 3.6 and stable.
I changed to XMP 1 and 2, and didn't notice any increase in processor speed.And what's a good step to be at before over clock, and after. I want to make sure I put on my arctic silver correctly, right now when I idle its like 39 to 45 degrees.

Thanks guys

Do you have a C0 or D0 stepping i7? You can tell by running CPU-Z under the stepping field. The D0 has more headroom to OC.

Honestly I would turn off turbo and speed step in the BIOS. Set your vcore to 1.2 v and set your BLK to 180 and see if it boots. If it does not, try increasing your vcore to 1.25 and so on. 180 will give you 3.6 GHZ. Some chips will run this at 1.2 some at 1.3 or in between. What does your XMP change? the vdimm? to what? 1.6v?

I have C0.

Ehh I'd still try a BLK of 180. Just make sure your RAM is not set higher than 1600, just to make sure you CPU is stable. You can mess with that later. You will probably need 1.3v at 180 though. If 1.3v is stable, lower it a notch and test. If it is not stable, raise it a notch.

Does your memory XMP profile set your QPI? I have mine set to 1.2 which is stock. I would also turn OFF Line Lock.

What are you using to test with? I use OCCT 3.0.1. It will REALLY stress your system. Download it, set it to custom, Large dataset, high prority, and check the Hyperthreading box. Let it cook for an hour and if it passes, you are fine. It will also give you graphcs of temps and voltages.

Thanks man.
Question , should I set my AI overclock tuner to XMP, profile 2 says 18000mhz 9-9-9-27 1n 1.65v-1.40
cpu ratio 18.0
blck 150
pci e freq 100
dram ddr3 1805mhz
uclk auto
qpi link auto

should I change the profile to manuel or D O C P?
And the vcore is that cpu voltage, or that qpi/dram core voltage? right now cpu voltage is auto, and qpi/dram core voltage is 1.40

one more thing, my dram bus voltage is 1.66, there's a msg saying anything above 1.65 will damage the cpu, should I turn it down?

Thanks, I left everything default, changed blck to 180 vcore 1.3 ,and disabled speed step. By line-load do you mean disable Load line calibration?

- To answer your first question, Some memory has several XMP profiles. You can run it faster but it turns things down. Mine only has 1 profile and its for the 1600 it is rated at. To be honest I would just run your memory at the rate speed until you know for sure your OC is good. vcore is CPU Voltage.

-The QPI is Quick Path Interconnect. It is like Intels version of AMD's HyperTransport. The stock voltage is 1.2 and I would keep it at that unless you are having memory issues. 1.4 won't harm it, I just don't see any reason to heat things up unless needed.

-You do not want to go past 1.66v for memory. I my XMP profile puts mine at 1.6v, I'd try yours at this. But 1.66 if fine. The Asus motherboards only go up in incriments of .02 So if you type in 1.65 it defaults to 1.66.

-Yeah Load Line Calibration. If you are running OCCT and run the stress test, what it does is when you get a load on your CPU it compensates and gives it voltage. However I don't like it because I think it gives to much voltage. This is supposed to counter vdroop, which is when your CPU takes a load and that load lowers the voltage. If you watch the voltage on idle it will be 1.3v but on load it will drop to 1.25 or something like that. With this ON you will see it go to like 1.32. With it disabled you run cooler as well. My buddy has the extreme Gigabyte board that has a totally seperate circuit for this function and works much better, but he paid a premium for that mobo.

Hm.. when I put the vcore to 1.3 it would boot into windows fine,when I ran the ooct test it blue screened. I put the vcore at 1.2 and it didn't boot into windows, I put everything back to defult. Also what setting do I change to config the ram?I'm not sure which options to change.

Here is a screenshot another guy took so you can see the menu

so what settings should I do to get it to 3.66

Those links did not work. But for the memory, there should be a setting under the AI Tweaker menu. I think it says AUTO by default, but can changed to XMP. You have a C0 which might require more voltage to be stable. I'd try 1.3125v, just inch it up a little and watch your temps. Your line load calibration is disabled, correct?

Yes I have a C0. giving it voltage 1.3125 should be safe huh?It won't kill the cpu?

Thanks for your help man

Those links should work now

Good morning, I have a 6 pt delux motherboard and as many times as I have upgraded the bios on different motherboards, something went wrong on this one. My question is, is there anyway to reset it back? Thank you. JB jbsno1@comcast.net
