965BE won't clock over 3.8GHz

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm new to Overclock.net! So hello to you all.
I have some problems overclocking my system, I'm pretty new to this so if you see anything I could do better, please tell me.

Anyway...
Can my chip really be so bad?
It's the BE version C3 revision, people hit 4.0-4.2GHz easily with 1.4-1.5 voltage.
I can't even hit 3.9GHz with 1.5V.
Can you guys help me a bit, 1.5V seems to high.
Currently my settings are:
Bus clock: 240 (Up from 200 stock)
Memory: 1600 CL8 1.65V (Stock, with a higher base clock, higher divider)
NB: 2890MHz (Up from 2000MHz stock)
HT: 2160MHz (Up from 2000MHz stock)
CPU: 3720MHz 1.48V (Temporary, seems stable for now, up from 3600MHz)

Also, I tried overclocking to near 4.0GHz with 1.5V, my core temps went up to 56°C, with my CPU fan at 100% (1500RPM), is this normal?
My CPU cooler is slightly better than a Mugen2 to give you an idea, is this normal, is my cooler broken or is it the voltage?

It takes 1.56 - 1.57 for me to get to 4.0 (1.55 in BIOS with LLC enabled)

So what about temps, what are your core and surface temps when you're at 4.0GHz?
What cooler do you use?
Edit: Are you talking about the 965?

As my CPU is an unlocked dual core i dont have temp monitoring so all i can use is the built in temp sensor on the mobo (same mobo as you ) my reading might not be as accurate but i idle around 30 - 33, on a CM 212+ and max load is around 52.

that NB clock is high. is it stable ?
have you upped volts on that? if not try bringing it down to 2400Mhz or so.

try just using the multiplier and dont use the FSB to see if its the actual CPU or just something else like memory or NB.

i feel ur pain. my X3 B50 (unlocked X2 550) hits a brick wall at 3.88-3.9Ghz even in dual core mode.
but a 200Mhz OC max is VERY unusual.
