Ive only ever had "K" CPU's in my boards.

 

Are you using an ancient BIOS?

The profiles are in all bioses :P

You guys do it wrong :D Better is set all manually and make your own Profile!

Who cares profiles lol^^

I think they want the timings, in that case maybe load a profile, see the timings it sets and then make your own profile using the timings as a starting point :)

How do you get bclk to work in GTL on XP? I have tried the linked MEI and installed it via device manager but no luck with bclk adjustment. Thinking it's my OS at this point . . .

Hi I tested the z97x-soc force with bios f4, f6, f7d and got about 950 pts in XTU (4770k stock + 2x2gb 2000 CAS8). Then I flash with x04 during a dry ice session (could not run XTU in the session), before ending I replaced main bios with f7d. A few days later I try XTU again but I can not get 950ish, I get between 520 and 530 pts (try other bios, backup bios, fresh install, etc, and still the same). But in cinebench I get results in line with stock settings. Could it be related to the bios?

Check your uncore speed.

 

I tried a beta bios in my z97x UD3H and it set my uncore to 8 (800mhz) in Auto. I got a very low XTU score until I realised what the problem was.

 

I also found that I had to do a "clr cmos" with the power off and disconnected after a did a bios reflash to an earlier version to ensure that the new bios was loaded correctly.

 

Cheers

I manually enter uncore, also test the bios x04, and no changes, xtu 530 and cinebench, wprime, hwbotprime correct results.

Is there a way to set RTLs? Mine seem to be very high like 47/48 9/10. Also every reboot they seem to differ, so a good sp32m run is coincidence.

And how to get tcwl=6 ? Every time I try to set, board hangs with C0.

Im on Z97X SOC Force F7e and Samsung ICs running 1400Mhz CL9-12-12-21

I've had a lot of issues with board hanging at c0 when trying to get (samsung, 2800) settings that ran easily before running. I'm on X04.

You definitely need X04, I train my mems now with samsung tight memory profile, then I lock rtls before I alter some of my subs. If this is booting I try to tighten rtls even more. And then I work on the subs and thirds. Often I need 1-3 trys before board boots successfully. At least I figured it out, though it seems my performance is still poor but at least Im finally under 6 minutes.

Any chance of getting the XP MEI link working again? Have just moved up from the Z87X-OC and trying to get drives etc set up.

guys, someone can help me out with a bios for the SOC-Force LN2 board, that can give 2.10v+ for vdimm and the gigabyte launcher oc tool is supported? with X02 bios, it does not work, and F bioses are vdimm limited by 2.10v.

 

ive seen couple guys running SOC-Force X04 on LN2 board, but if i try to flash it with qflash or efiflash ive got bios id mismatch error. any clue about to solve it? thanks
