Just posting up some useful information for those who need to repair a broken raid on Intel chipsets.
Sometimes a drive can drop out of the raid set and get reset to "non-raid disk and when this happens it can be a nightmare and you can lose data if not handled properly.
Do not go into the...
Edited on 08-Jun-2008: Guide is now version 1.7 – added a 2nd example minimizing the vcores on my system.
Before you continue, I wrote this guide with the newbie in mind, so please don't reply criticizing it for being too simplistic -- it's this way by design. Also know that the steps for...
Intel P35 Chipset
Great overclocker. 500-600MHz FSB easy on a good board w/Dual, mid-high 400's with quad. I think I saw one 500FSB shot on a quad with a DFI board a while back.
Clocks RAM well if you have the high FSB to back it up.
Initially this post will link to 965 and 975 chipset boards per brand. As new chipsets/boards come along they will be added.
General guides and tweaker software under a seperate subsection.

This post is for New Owners of Intel Conroes, Meroms, Pentium D's, and Allendales, to explain some of the basics of Intel hardware, and Overclocking with Intel hardware.
with the huge influx of new people switching from either older Intel set ups, or just plain old moving from the A64 to the...
My System is suddenly behaving odd.
Recently my setup which is
Motherboard : P6X58D-E
Mem Gskill F3-16000CL9T-6GBRH
Cooling Noctua P12
Graphics XFX 5870
I'm considering doing a small upgrade to my current rig and give it some more lifespan.
I'm considering passing from my Q9450 that tops at 3.44ghz to an extreme edition and try t push for 4ghz air (i have decent air cooling, thermalright ultra 120 with 2 scythe 120 fans...
I understand the divider part FSB:Memory but where does the Mhz strapping come into play in the BIOS?
This is from Anandtech review of the new Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6
So basically it's said that for my E6750, 266 strap and 3:2 divider might work better. How so? :shrug:
Note that I don't...
With Intel shutting down motherboard production, I am curious to know if anyone has any idea, regarding Intel's support of their current motherboards (i.e., Sandy Bridge-E, Ivy Bridge). Also, does Intel still plan on releasing Ivy Bridge-E boards, this year or has that changed? Will...
I have a Asus P6T Deluxe with a 920 i7 & corsair dominator 1600MHz memory. Does anyone have a template of their bios settings to overclock to at least 3.6GHz?
right now I can't get much past 3.4 without it locking up on me. Thanks for all your help!

Hi everyone, I recently finished my first gamer build and now I want to really start to overclock. I am running the i7-2600k on an ASUS Maximus iV extreme-z motherboard. The current factory OC options only let me go to 4.6. I know this CPU can go over 5 and I want to know how to properly get...
Lets start a consolidated thread for OC reports on these chips so we don't end up with a zillion single threads.
My chip will be here in a few hours. I will post batch and whatever anyone else wants to know.
Let the fun begin !!!
Bought it online from NCIX Canada
Hi, I have an ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard, the usb ports on it do not work (don't detect anything). I seen many other people with this problem when searching for solutions but nobody seems to actually know what causes this. I have two of these boards (one has a very damaged cpu socket so I will use...
My prized Asus Extreme has died. Bios beep code one long three short one short indicates memory refresh controller failure according to the interweb. Anyone else experienced this type of trauma lol ASUS UK have sent RMA form.:shrug:
Hi, I have a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3P motherboard (rev 3.3) which is missing two surface mount resistors near the cpu socket. The resistors are R2722 and R2721.
When the board is powered up, it will start for a few seconds then restart (it just does this in a loop, never posting).
I would greatly...
For some time I was planning to build 8 core desktop. At first I thought that it would be possible with Sandy Bridge E, but despite having 8 physical cores, they limited non-server edition to 6 :( So I was thinking that in next revision (Ivy Bridge E) they will bring full 8 cores to desktop....
I'm building a workstation and intend on overclocking the CPU. I'm new to building computers so I was hoping I could get some final advice. I have all of the parts at home, but now that I've done some thorough research on OCing, I'm curious if I picked the proper cooling solution. ...
I'm having issues with my i3-530 H57 machine, which has been perfectly stable for a year, suddenly starting to randomly reboot. These aren't software/OS issues or BSODs, but instant power-offs and then auto-restarts 30 seconds or so later. Temps and cooling are fine, there have been no hardware...
Is there much of it going on? I tried to search and didnt find much other than sb-e hating the cold. Also how are you mounting? I know x79 has same dimensions at x58 but it uses rods instead of going through the mobo, so in essence my SS only has 1366 but i could find some rods to screw in place...
Hi Guys, I've been out of the loop for ages, but trying to get back in.
I am having a total nightmare though, for the love of god someone help me! :(
I have a X79 Sabertooth, that will not power up for longer than a second.
When I press the power button, the fans spin for 1-2 seconds then...
So it's been about a year since I've touched overclocking on this rig. I had to do alot of reading when I did this stuff a year ago considering the bios is completely different over say a E8400. The terminology is all different. I started following the guide...

Will my heatsink from my i7 970 work on sb-e? I got a 3930k which of course comes with no heatsink, no big deal really its going under my single stage but id like to obviously test it first and get the computer installed, i was hoping to reuse the air sink for a day or so. i know the spacing is the...
What feels like half a year has gone by, since Intel announced TRIM support for RAID was just around the corner...
I got my 2nd Force3 incoming in a couple of days, but I still only see the TRIM support on beta drivers? Can it really be that they could not finish the work?
Or is my info...
Whats the best set of 8GB (4x2GB) or 16GB (4x4GB) to pair with a 3930k under phase?
I read the Intel RAID 101 but not sure how to fix my issue.
Intel has apparently a pretty crappy RAID implementation on even good MB's.
I have a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UDR3R.
I have a RAID 1 for a boot drive on the Gigabyte RAID controller for the OS. It works fine booting W7.
I have a RAID...
I am looking to save some money on buying memory for a cruncher. I have this older DDR3 1600 CL7 Corsair Dominator 3 x 2GB set. What would happen if I use this in combination with a 2600K. Will the first 2 sticks run in dual channel and the third in single or will it all revert back to single...
I am just wondering how high have people had the QPI DRAM Voltage on their 1366 i7 CPU Overclocks ?
It may be called QPI VTT or something else on different motherboards , I am using the ASUS P6X58D-E and on this board it is called QPI DRAM.
Q) How high is too high for...
