Advice on overclocking i7 920 on gigabyte ud7

I start my first steps in overclocking i7 . I think I understood the concept. My config is as follows :
Core I7 920
Gigabyte ud7
G. Skill PC3- 10666 CL9
Gainward GTX 275 GS
Cooler Master Real Power m850watt
I get to reach 3ghz with a vcore of 1.1v in the bios and everything is stable . I then increase the vcore to 1.15, block port PCI Express on the 100mhz vram to 1.5 and reduce the multiplier to 8 ram . I could go to 3.2GHz without any problem , the pc was stable after a test of Prime95 . The only problem I noticed is that gta 4 train when I run for example , or when I'm driving . One thing that does not support 2.6GHz which is weird. I do not know what else to change , I change the BCLK , the ratio of memory, and the vcore. I hope you will help me to find out this problem.

Re: Advice on overclocking i7 920 on gigabyte ud7

My advice is put the proc or @ 3.33 (this is the simplest) , or at most @ 3.6 Ghz ( the you got a little more manipulations ) , but no more. Then OC the RAM much as you can , but I suppose that you could not do much with it given the OC of the process . Anyway OC RAM is not very useful. Once you OC your convenience , you make an hour of OCCT CPU and also a memtest ( boot via CD ) . If all well and wish that you really need the OC , so you keep this config.

Re: Advice on overclocking i7 920 on gigabyte ud7

Firstly before you overclock the Core i7 920, we have disabled the Turbo mode via the bios. This feature , a reminder, automatically overclock the cores according to the load , without exceeding the TDP of the processor , set at 130 watts . The maximum overclocking mode is 2 " bins "or 2x133.33 MHz , 266.66 MHz , then. To overclock the Bclk , reduce the multiplier QPI link speed , just as we reduced the coefficient of Hyper - Transport link on Processors AMD order not to be limited by the bus .

Apart from the QPI link speed, it will also adjust the multiplier of the uncor ( integrated memory controller, L3 cache ) . Here we have a choice between x12, x14 , x16 , x18 , x20 , x22, x24, x26, x28 and x30 . Note that the frequency of the uncor directly influences the memory bandwidth . The goal is simple: find the best coefficient of maintaining good bandwidth. A greater frequency " uncor " can increase the overall performance via memory bus clock and QPI . It can increase blood IOH uncor to stabilize at higher frequencies. Because each CPU is different, it is only in testing that we can find the proper setting.

Re: Advice on overclocking i7 920 on gigabyte ud7

The last value to be taken into account to increase the multiplier will Bclk memory bus , severely limited by a i7 920 because we have the choice between 6X (DDR3 -800) and 8X (DDR3 -1066 ) . The i7 940 and i7 965xe have a greater number of multiplier . If one owns holding 1600MHz DDR3 , this will not cause any concern for overclocking with Bclk of 200mhz and memory 8X multiplier , we will reach the highest memory specifications.

Re: Advice on overclocking i7 920 on gigabyte ud7

It is a common case of an overclock that does not simply . So the first thing you have done a Clear CMOS to find a standard setting in the BIOS trustworthy. Anyway, you must configure your machine starts with the way that is more standard , and see if the problem persists . Then , restart your OC in increments , if the problem occurs again then it is the OC that does not simply.
