Anyone ever Overclock 2011V3 Locked Xeons?

As of late I have been working on overclocking my Xeon 2630L V3.

Specs
8/16 8 core 16 threads
1.8Ghz 2.9Ghz turbo (my ass:P)
55 watt TDP
20MB L3 Cache

When ran at stock it boots up at 1.19GHz and Turbos to 2Ghz

I can modify the Multiplier up to 29 but cannot touch the Ring Multiplier above 18.
With the above settings it boots into windows at 2Ghz and turbos to 2.4Ghz
If I touch the ring multiplier the system instantly locks at 1.19Ghz in windows no turbo no fun haha.
If I change it back to 18 then I can keep moving the Core Multiplier up and the FSB up to 106 without issues.

With lots of modding the fastest I have hit is 2.95Ghz but want to hit at least 3Ghz

Problem is I am new to overclocking Xeons and X99 but wanted to know if I'm missing something as their might be a secret to this thing.

Thank you

Well as it stands John you have a WR on your Xeon chip as no one has submitted one on HWBOT.
So as it is 2.95GHz is a record..  🙂

Thanks but the problem is that is my turbo oc, not base. It does stay at that speed for full benchmarks but I want to hit that speed with the turbo off just cannot figure out how.

Fixed over dynamic oc gets my terrible results 😞

That's how intel gets you 🙂 Turbo 2.9 on probably the first core, and keeps going down by 100mhz with every enabled core, to verify my theory, go to the bios, disable all the cores except one, boot the pc and run CPUz or Prime95 with Real Temp and report back with the speed
