Hi there linus,
i have a gigabyte x58 ud7 mob and i7 980x cpu.i overclocked it upto 4.0ghz and it was stable.now i am trying to push it 4.3 or 4.4. the thing is....whatever combination i try prime 95 crashes it within a minute.... can u help me out plz...
how to achieve a 4.4ghz stable overclock?if possible can u gimme a tested setting for this mobo and cpu?
If you're stable into Windows and to start P95, it's probably just not enough vcore. Dunno what the limits are offhand.
From my understanding, you need alot of vcore among other things to get the 980 and 990X to breach 4.2Ghz or so, so unless you have exceptional cooling, I wouldn`t even attempt to do so as there is a very high risk of frying something, those chips can draw and awful lot of heat/power and require alot of cooling and just the right settings for it to happen.
I have a freind whom has his 980X sitting at 4.3Ghz, I do not recall the voltages or anything, all I know is he had to have a custom water loop to cool it well enough to run it above 4.1 as it just needed alot of voltage to bridge the 4.1-4.3 range.
you need 1.36-1.42v
@all: thank u so much for providing info guys...i am still working on it.i have a corsair h70 liquid cooler...will it help the 4.3ghz temp???
ive upped the vcore to abt 1.37 and it was stable at 4.3 for abt 1 and half hours and then it crashed....wat does this mean... ?
and thanks to all it is a first step that it lasted that long.
It either overheated or you need more vcore
@supaflx3: thanks mate!
what temps did you hit?
what voltage does it droop to on load?
@zsamz: still in stress test... idling at 45 to 50c and 88c on full load....
but i dont know anything about the droop you are talking about....what do you mean by that?..i am totally new to this overclocking business!
