memclock value : 1387
DRAM Timings:
TCL: 9

It only passed Linx for 9loops and had an error on the 10th loop, no BSODS though smile.gif
any thoughts why I'm getting an error on the 10th loop? Should I alter any settings?
Thanks again!

What are your temps after the 9th pass? smile.gif

42 degrees after the 9th pass... BTW before this reply I ran Linx with CPU voltage 1.552V. Passed 10 loops however on the 12th loop it resulted in a BSOD.

I thought I had it biggrin.gif

10 loops with what memory setting?.. How long did it take to pass those? How many Gflops?

I had these settings of:

cpu overvoltage : 1.53(CPUZ)
memclock value : 1387
DRAM Timings:

I think, it took around 11 minutes and I can't remember how many Gflops it was.

I meant the memory setting in LinX - how much RAM do you use? 2Gb, 4?

Try to lower ref clock by 2, keep the voltage at 1.55 for this try, and see if you can get past the 12th run. Just to see where the wall is smile.gif
Because a bump of 0.03v gave you just 2 more runs, which isn't too good..

Hey ronnin! I tried lowering the reference clock by two and it gave me a BSOD. So I tried lowering the reference clock by another 2 however Linx reported an error during the second loop.

This was my last test:

cpu frequency multi : 256 x 14
cpu/nb : x8 (2048)
cpu overvoltage : 1.56(CPUZ)
memclock value : 1364.48

DRAM Timings:
TCL: 9
TRCD: 9
TRP: 9
TRAS: 27
TRC: 27
CR =1

I also tried:

DRAM Timings:

TCL: 8
TRCD: 8
TRP: 8
TRAS: 20
TRC: 27

Glfops: 3891.851

Looks like I have a not so cooperative CPU smile.gif I think it's only limited to overclocking until 3.4 Ghz.

Yes. 3900 Gflops is a broken reading, means instability. Actual Gflops for Athlon II x3 @4.0Ghz are ~38.
@3.5Ghz that'd be no more than 33-35. Even HD 6870s in Tri-fire can't pull 3900 Gflops tongue.gif
