cyber649 Posted October 17, 2010 Share Posted October 17, 2010 I am still fairly new to this overclocking thing, so I need some help from the more experienced folks. My setup: Asus P6X58D-E i7 950 @ 4.0Ghz (seems to be stable) 6gb of tripple channel XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz H70 watercooling Corsair 1000W PSU Radeon 5870 And here are the settings I have for my OC setup: BCLK Freq @ 175 CPU Voltage @ 1.35000 (cant go any lower or my system locks up) DRAM bus voltage @ 1.50V (untouched) CPU PLL @ 1.80 (untouched) QPI/DRAM core volt @ 1.37500 (untouched) If you need any further info, let me know and I will provide anything I can to help narrow my problem down. So here is the issue I am having and it seems to be narrowed down to my memory. The issue that I am having is that if I set the DRAM to auto, it wants to put the memory at 1067MHz which is not what the memory is spec'd for if I am understand this right. When I set it manually when overclocking, the option I choose is 1735MHz if I remember right, because it is closet to the rated 1600MHz. What happens when I set it to that is that instead of showing 6GB of memory, it shows only 4GB of memory. When I go back and set it back to auto, it can detect all 6 gigs. I want to know if there is something I need to set, such as dram voltage, dram core volt, timings etc. So that I can run it at full speed and than some, and run it stable. I had a complete lockup which makes me point the finger at the memory. What can I do to resolve this, and has anyone else had this problem before? http://www.mxnetworks.net/uploads/cpu-specs.jpghttp://www.mxnetworks.net/uploads/memory-specs.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
