I'd recommend turning the mults down to something silly low while you bench test your bclk and voltages, if you want to raise them. I like going through each 'group' individually-- low cpu mult (like, 10x), low mem mult (6 or 8x), each with decent volts, then raising BCLK in steps of 10 then bench then adjust voltages. Once you get to the 1.4 ish V range then that's where you're at, but you can fall into 'bclk holes' where more volts don't do anything but much more freq adds stability. Then focus on memory mult-- leave bclk voltage where you found it but dial it back to stock, key in the mem mult for your eventual desired setting (eg, 200bclk * 10x mem = 2000 mem speed), whatever volts you think it'll run at, then step bclk back to that already tested speed. Then, dial back down, key in a CPU mult you want to run (eg 23) and step up bclk, adjusting cpu volts each time for stability.

@GrockleTD ^^^ There's how you find your max BCLK the proper way. 

Once you do that, you use multipliers to get your speeds up, what you set those to depends on BCLK, since clocks = BCLK x Multi. As for voltages, you'll need to up vCore, possibly VTT, DIMM voltage, mebbe a couple others. If your board is like mine and has offsets for some stuff, you'll want to hop into Prime95 with the CPU at stock, and see what the voltages are in HWiNFO.

Just under 57 days of 24/7 full load now. Can I call my 5960X O.C. stable yet? Is it safe!? /s

I haven't been following the thread. What motherboard, RAM, CPU, and PSU? What type of OC were you dialing in manually?

X58 sabertooth, x5680, TT Smart RGB 700W, anything really, the only thing i managed to get working was the MemOK setting which actually increased memory clock from

1086 -> 1333

1086 -> 1333

A long while back when I dabbled in FSB(BLK) overclocking I found success in dropping the multiplier, dropping the RAM by 266MHz, then increasing the FSB until the RAM was +266MHz again. This resulted in a stable system from my testing. Each time I'd drop the RAM 266MHz and increase the FSB until it was back up ~266MHz. Then I'd just tweak voltages to compensate.

 

I'd really like to try overclocking a E5-2670 on my old, run down, Sabertooth X79 motherboard using this method.

tenor-2.gif.180eb6f5384d32b12c4b290afe965f02.gif

I had a Thermaltake Toughpower 850w for like 8 years in my X58 build after "liquid damage" took out my psu and my top and rear fans in my Antec 900. It was used and free, think it was made in like 2008. I don't know, it even made me $20 after I got my Seasonic Focus+'s. That Toughpower was fairly high end when it came out though if I recall. The original PSU in my current build was a replacement for a Ultra psu that was chrome, had a window and was UV with clear UV cables that literally caught on fire and tried to take out my Q6600 build.

 

I don't buy cheap psus anymore, it's either going to be used and free with something else or something with a decent warranty and manufactured by a reputable brand. I have enough garbage like a couple Thermaltake TR2's still kicking around in working systems that I have to compensate for.

I've got a QS Xeon 1660v3 doing 4.57 ghz after remounting my cooler a bit better. It's taking 1.48 volts to do that unfortunately. 

 

I've noticed throughout the time with this CPU that core 2 runs noticeably hotter than every other core. I've replicated this at idle, load, and with a different cooler. I'm positive it's not a mounting problem. 

 

I doubt I can fix it but I'd like to see if anyone else has had a similar issue with their 8 cores x99 chips. I really think that core is hurting the overclocking ability some and I'm definitely running the fans a bit harder for it.

I've got a QS Xeon 1660v3 doing 4.57 ghz after remounting my cooler a bit better. It's taking 1.48 volts to do that unfortunately. 

That’s likely going to degrade the chip pretty quickly. What input voltage are you running? 1.35v vCore/2.1v Input Voltage is safe max for daily use on these chips. If you can’t hit 4.5 at that, I’d highly recommend just dropping clocks. 4.5 an onwards is diminishing returns anyways, you can usually run these chips much, much lower at 4.2. My 5820K would do 4.5 at 1.35v, but 4.2 at 1.2v, little difference in performance (especially if you’re pushing your uncore to 3.6-3.7, higher if you have an OC socket equipped board).

I've noticed throughout the time with this CPU that core 2 runs noticeably hotter than every other core. I've replicated this at idle, load, and with a different cooler. I'm positive it's not a mounting problem. 

 

I doubt I can fix it but I'd like to see if anyone else has had a similar issue with their 8 cores x99 chips. I really think that core is hurting the overclocking ability some and I'm definitely running the fans a bit harder for it. 

 What are your temps like? I can check next time I have my 5960X rig running, IIRC all the cores stay within a few degrees of each other.

Ahhhh that's better, just an E5 1603 for now but a friend of mine offered me a 3960X for 50 quid so i'll be going for that

Those are some serious heatsinks.

Those CB15 scores are noice! Is that before or after the spectre/meltdown stuff? I disabled those mitigations in the registry using InSpectre, didn't seem to make much of a difference tho.

Yall want to see some disappointing stock performance?

 

SR-2 + 2x X5675 + 2x R9 290. Apparently my HD5870 has given up the ghost so I am down a GPU.

 

These results are exactly why overclocking the nuts off of X58 (and 5520 @Zando Bob) is needed to not be crap nowadays.
