I wanted to see if people can post there i7 860 setups. All voltages in the BIOS, and hardware would be helpful.. I am running a Gigabyte p55a-ud4p and I cant seem to get a stable overclock over 3.76ghz. I have been trying lots of different voltage combo's and stress testing, but I am not having any luck. Thanks in advance.
My equipment is similar, same motherboard. I found 3.8 to be unstable with levels of power I was willing to use. I have no doubt that I could have stabilized it easily if not restrained by intels spec for Vtt. I prefer to keep temps/power dissipation low, and enjoy a moderate overclock. Currently running several configs, depending. My favorite is 160x22, ram at x10 using 7,7,7,24,32 memory settings. This with vtt=1.21, vcore=1.28125 (LLC Disabled), vpll=1.086, vdimm=1.6. This configuration gives me 3.5ghz at the cpu, fastest and tightest my ram can go, and really solid stability, tests under LinX over 8 hours, no errors with 4gb of memory selected. I may still be able to lower vcore further, testing is still ongoing. High temps after 8 hrs of LinX, 69C.
