Stable CPU Overclock but PC locks up during games - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the reply.

I've managed to stay stable so far with 1 hour of gaming and ran linx for a few passes although it almost fried my CPU lol. Temps rose to 81C!

Anyway, my RAM is actually two different brands.. Lol

I first had 2GB (1GB x2) installed in dual channel when I had windows xp pro. It's Crucial Ballistix and they're not listed on the website anymore =/
The sticker on the ram states they're 4-4-4-12 @ 2.2V. I just found them on newegg deactivated. Typing the URL manually on my iPhone, copying from pc: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146565
Under details it clearly states the stock voltage is 2.2V

Here's where it gets tricky though. When upgrading to Windows 7 x64 I rushed and bought 4GB (2GB x2). Their brand is A-Data and they also run at 800MHz. But their voltage is rated at 1.8V and timings are 5-5-5-18.. Typing newegg URL: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-188-_-Product

But to be honest it isn't causing instability. In fact at stock I've never had one crash whatsoever. But maybe I'm pushing the a-data pair by putting the voltage at 2.2V.

Anyway, like I stated above, I think everything's stable with CPU VTT at 1.45V in bios (OCCT shows 1.52V).
Able to game and run CPU stressing apps. But here's my new issue, well it's reoccurring.. It's a known issue with nvidia chipsets and creative sound cards. I only get it whenever I OC above 2.99GHz (basically 3GHz because this board doesn't boot at certain FSB).. it's the squeal of death. It happens when running a game and it happens very often. In fact during 20 minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops it happened like 10 times. Sound goes all crazy and it's unbearable!

I know this is a sound card issue but it's caused by my overclock, so maybe I can get some assistance in this thread. I know I haven't done any long term testing to see if my OC is fully stable but at least it's not instantly crashing in game, I think we have a winner.. hopefully.

Any help with the SoD on my Creative Titanium HD? I've read that setting the pci latency timer fixes it but I have no such setting in bios.

Also, I have PCI-E frequency locked at 100MHz.

Well, with mix-matched RAM, you're going to have those inconsistencies. You have to find a combination of voltage, speed, and timings that both can do. Of course, you did, but 2.2V for that speed/timings seems too much. That Crucial RAM is rated 2.2V, true, but that's at 4-4-4-12 at 800MHz. You're running it at 5-5-5-18 at 667MHz, which is both looser timings AND lower speed, so you can try lowering it. That way you're putting much less unnecessary voltage into the A-Data RAM. I'd say it should be able to do that speed/timing combination at 2.0V at least (maybe even 1.9V?).

I'm not sure about the sound issue.

Word of advice...

Stop trying to shoot for your target OC right off the bat. Take it up slow and steady so you have a better idea of where voltage needs to be at. If you try to overclock and overvolt everything at once, and then try to make multiple adjustments at a time, you're doomed to failure.

Take it up slowly, one step at a time. Get it stable, then go higher. Adjust ONE thing at a time. Unstable? Adjust ONE likely voltage, retest.

I would take a guess it is RAM. You have older memory running with somewhat newer mem with different ratings for both. Take the two 1gig sticks out and leave the A-Data sticks in, then set to recommended volt and timings. I had a unstable OC and turns out it was the RAM voltage being off by .1v so try that I bet it fixes issue.

I took out the two 1GB older sticks and left the newer ones in. I had to move one of them from slot 1 to 2 because my computer didn't want to boot up. In slots 2 & 3 CPU-Z says they're running in dual channel. I haven't ran into the screech of death yet, I've played 2 15 minute movies and it didn't happen once (used to happen within minutes). I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

But I'm still getting a BSOD when gaming. Please note this only happens when in game, I can browse the menus just fine. I've gotten two in a row and testing for a third right now. I've been bumping the NB voltage and I'm at 1.5V as we speak. So here goes nothing...

I tried launching a different game to test but instead of a BSOD my computer rebooted. I bumped the NB to 1.55V and now my computer won't even boot. The machine is on but it's not triggering my monitor and the HDD light isn't on. I'm going to have to reset CMOS once again.

By the way, the two BSOD errors I got were IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Any ideas? Suggestions?

Try setting everything back to defaults, that way you can make sure is not a CPU or Memory problem, and test it with Linx.

edit: Never mind I see that you had reset the Cmos

Yea everything runs stable at stock. The reason I want to OC is because of random stutters and freezes in counter strike source whenever someone throws a nade and makes objects scatter, and this is all happening off screen in some other part of the map. I've noticed that while overclocked with AI tuning @ 10%, there's an improvement. But I've been told AI tuning is bad plus I like to manually OC.

I'm trying this again, I've put the NB voltage down to 1.45v again and tried my Vcore all the way up at 1.4v and it reboot, this time no BSOD. Going to try and increase it a little..

I'm really starting to think it could be my PSU

Do you guys think it could be software related? I don't have viruses and I check for spyware everyday. I use Avira and Windows Firewall. I also have a netgear router with a wired connection to my pc. I don't know if my router has a firewall built in though.. Maybe it's causing a conflict with the Windows firewall? I doubt it since this only happens when I overclock =/

Try changing PCI-e frequency to 101, some boards auto-OC it when it's left at 100 or on auto. Also try lowering your VTT, 1.52 is very high for 3GHz. A 550W PSU should easily handle that system, I had a 2900XT and B3 Q6600 overclocked on a crappy 650W unit that would be worse than that 550W one. Also my tuniq gets about the same temps as yours in linX with my G0 at 3.6GHz, I'm guessing that's a B3 chip? The stuttering is weird as my Q6600 with a 3870/2900/470 didn't do that at stock, I definitely saw an improvement going to 3GHz but I never had bad stuttering at stock.

Edit: It sounds like NB or RAM instability to me :/

Actually it's a G0

I'll increase the pci-e frequency on the next reboot. Right now I went against my word and used AI tuning at 20%. So far no crash and I've been gaming for 15 minutes.

Should I install my older sticks of ram to have 6gb total although they run at different voltage and timings at stock?

I'll test it after a few hours of this to see..

Also AI tuning OCs the ram.
