Hello. I'm trying to OC at cpu to 3.9ghz with the lowest vcore possible being steady. I've tried so many different configurations and tweaked the settings and seems like I am getting no where after hrs of playing around with settings.
i7 920 D0 (Stepping 5)
EVGA x58 SLI LE
1000w corsair PSU
12GB Corsair Dominator. (6x2GB (PC3-12800) DDR3 1600 @ 1562 Mhz )
Vista 64bit (Upgrading soon to Windows 7 64bit)
2 X EVGA 285 2gb sli (Upgrading soon to 1 card only)
I cannot even get it to load into windows without having it atleast to 1.45v on the cpu vcore. Any suggestions? Pictures follow below. Thanks.
and i do very much hope you are not using the stock cooler.
I'd like to stick at 3.9Ghz. I know it is very well possible. I know every chip/unit is different, but I've seen many 920 D0's at 4.0Ghz with low voltages. I tried following that guide recently and it hasn't helped much in my opinion.
I'm using the Zalman CNPS10X CPU cooler so temperatures are fine and are not a concern.
BTW, i saw your 'Turbo Mode' Function was enabled. It could be the cause of your O.C failed. As the Ratio would be turbo to x21 after the cpu has been 100% loaded.
Thanks for the reply. I did try it once previously, but didn't tweak the settings enough to try and see a stable cpu with no BSOD's. I'll give it another shot and post my results again soon.
As of right now I've been able to get about 90% stable on my current settings. I can run Intel Burn Test 30 runs and it is successful and on other end sometimes it only finishes 4 passes and gives me an "unstable" error. Any who, these are my current settings. Running okay as of right now at about 3.85ghZ. Still looking to push to a stable 4.0!
