Most probably. AFAIK it's supposed to be CL9. Corsair doesn't react very well on timings drop (in my experience), it could very well be the reason for your BSODs

So I guess I can't go any further with my current memory.. I'll just go back with the previous OC that I had..I just thought I can squeeze out more:D

Try whit 9-9-9-27-34 2t and see if that is stable. If it is, then try same timings but whit 1t instead. Then move on to oc your cpu nb

Still not able to hit it with those timings. I'm thinking this has something to do with the memory i have. Anyways I couldn't get my system to stabilize at FSB:240 however I did manage to make it stable at:


235 x 15 = 3.52 GHz
cpu nb x 8 = 1880
DRAM Frequency = 1252
Core Voltage : 1.47V

Still had fun with the entire process biggrin.gif though I could have been any happier If I had a good ram biggrin.gif

I think I should get a good memory next time, I'll probably get better results by then.

Need to take a break first! smile.gif

If you feel like experimenting, you can drop CPU multi to 14x, raise ref.clock to 260 or something and drop all other multipliers till they produce stock freq.

Also, if you can manually set the timings to CL9 and still get the BSOD, it's probaby not your RAM, but just the CPU being unable to cope with higher freq. It happens smile.gif
Have you tried to unlock it? I've heard that badly OCing AthII x3 have better chance to unlock to Phenom quad.

The M4A88T-M he's using should be quite enough smile.gif

connected the cooler anyway [corsair hydro-cooler h60] and raised the levels
cpu frequency multi : 260 x 15
cpu/nb : 9x
cpu overvoltage : 1.50625
vddnb : 1.50625
memclock value : 533Mhz

TCL: 9
TRCD: 9
TRP: 9
TRAS: 30
TRC: 34
memory over voltage : 1.56
chipset voltage : 1.4

ram is adata 1333 4 gb. timings under 9 is not stable! dont know why. can i drop the timings?

I gonna try your suggestion..see if that works for me thumb.gif By the way, when you say set the timings to CL9 do you mean set it to stock timings confused.gif

You know what, I did try to unlock it to a quad core and good thing my mobo supports it... I can get boot up in Window without any issue..it's just that when I checked the temperatures of each core it jumped all the way to 70 degrees for each one of them based on HW Monitor..

I think the it has a faulty sensor.. I even tried to stress test it using Prime for 30 minutes and so far so good... I just couldn't tell if I'm still within safe temperature due to the faulty sensors... Any tips in finding out if I'm still within the safe temperature for an Athlon with faulty sensors??

Thanks! smile.gif

Take the case cover off. Start LinX or Prime or whatever. Touch the heatsink. If you feel you're burning your fingers after 5 sec, you're at 70C.
BTW unlocking often screws the temp sensor, so I think you're in safe range. What's the TMPIN0 reading?

PS: These days quad is better than OCed tri. smile.gif
