I7 920

hardware
MB - Asrock X58 Extreme
Processor - i7 920 D0
Ram - G.SKILL Trident 6GB 2000 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231254

Target Processor Speed - 3.6-4.0 (3.6 preferred) ghz
Target RAM Speed - 2000 9-9-9-24

I am unable to get the ram run at the specified settings when using the XMP profile.
What else do I need to change besides the uncore? (need to know which voltages / safe ranges)

Current Settings - Stable - 3.6ghz - RAM at 800mHz
BCLK 180
CPU Voltage - 1.25
Memory Voltage - 1.64v
Uncore - 3200
Memory Speed - 800 (1600)
All other settings are [Auto] if not listed.

  1. you can look here http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/253365-29-core-overclocking-guide
    it's a pretty good overclocking guide.
    and then read this for your temperatures guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/221745-29-sticky-core-core-temperature-guide

    *You will want to keep the side panel off of your pc case while tuning your bios. This will make it easier to clear cmos after a failed overclock.

    XMP profile is not a good idea #in my opinion (personal choice, i'm not a pro)
    manually setting timings 9-9-9-24 and rest on auto in memory section of bios might have best results.

    **your G.SKILL Trident 6GB 2000 voltage is 1.6v
    do not go above that.
  2. There is almost NO reason whatsoever to run at higher ram speeds. It offers NO performance improvements,
