Trying to overclock G. Skill Pi
 
So iv been trying to push my Pi, but it seems I cant even get it to do 6-7-6-24 at 1504Mhz, and thats a downclock from stock, and according to G. Skill tech over on there forum I can do "CAS 6 stock speeds, or CAS 9 at 2000Mhz" (which doesn't even post...) When I attempt CAS 6 I get to the win7 logo, then i BSOD or blackout.

Anyone got any advice? Im kind of regretting not just buying the 2000Mhz Trident+

You know, my car doesn't start either, how do I get it to work? BTW, I'm not gonna tell you anything I've done, so you're gonna have to guess.

Thanks for being so rude, it really helps!

I pretty much just went to set my dram clock to 1504Mhz, went to timings went 6-7-6-24 auto for rest, voltage 1.5. Not much elts I could do...

You're quite welcome. Not many people these days appreciate rudeness. These are dark times.

If your system is the one in the signature, you need to raise your memory controller voltage. They go by different names on different motherboards. Usually called Uncore on most.
Start at 1.35 and go up.

Thank you, I will try this, Iv never clocked ram, I usually leave it stock.

I personally had issues getting my Pi sticks to run 6-8-6-24 @ 1600, but I assumed that was because the timings were rated for intel and I was running on AMD rigs. That said..... 7-8-7-24 has a fair bit of headroom over and above 1600.

You mentioned setting the 6-7-6-24 in bios, and then leaving everything else on auto.... did you bump the mem voltage up to the required level? If they're the same sticks as I've got (dual channel set rated for 6-8-6-24) they need 1.6V to run at those speeds.

My mushkins are at 1.7 V but they were rateted at 1,69 V 1600.
Leave mutiplyer stock and push QPI and the sticks will get pushed to.
watch the Magic 3400 Qpi if you cn go over your lucky but try and stay near 3400 QPI or under at first.

i had them at 1.65v, and a uncore of 1.4 and I freeze on my raid controller starting. Mine are a tri channel set rated for 7-8-7-24 at 1.5v.

What exactly is the maximum safe uncore... Before I wreck something.

the bord 1.69 V the sticks RAM vary dont know sorry
