dmoheban " Once at the "max auto voltage point", vcore and CPU VTT will need to be set manually. Where you set vcore will depend on the vdroop setting so "with vdroop" vcore will need to be set to a value of ~.15v ABOVE the load voltage of vcore but ~.1v BELOW it if running "without vdroop". " I don't get that last statement. Can some please help explain? Thanks.
mohsh86 This is the most Complex Thread i've ever read, everything is unclear, shall turbo mode be enabled or disabled before start to OC ? i have 920 D0, when turbo mode is enabled, and i open eleete, 22x for first clore, 21 for the rest. shall i keep increasing the QPI MHz till i BSOD ? or just to achive 10 MHZ ? 133 to 143 MHZ ? i was able to achive 151 MHz stable ( testing with prime and Linx) when i increase to 153, (prime works alittle then stops says hardware faluire, if i increase to 156 and click apply a BSOD will appear, but non of those BSOD mentioned in your thread. i have CORSAIR DOMINATOR 1600 with XMP, shall the standard profile be enabled or the XMP be enabled before overcliking ? all this is unclear, i want to get 3.8 Ghz thats it !?
gkanakis I know there are some that want to set it and forget it on the first try. To them I say don't overclock, because it is a long process. I have not overclocked since the AMD 1600+ came out! I remember taking my 1.4ghz chip to 2ghz with a peltier and water cooling. Anyway, I have forgot almost everything! This is a great write up! Great job! Edit: 5 hours latter, including dinner, and OC'ed to 4 ghz! All cores run at 75c under full load for over an hour, Corsair H50 sure helps. Again thank for the write up!!!
Alucard666 I'm currently having issues with Bios 44 and bios S22D any recommendations shansmi? I can't oc past a QPI of 158. I'm looking for something of a 3.6 or 3.8 oc.
