close but no cigar !!!!

post #1 of 83
Thread Starter 
ok so i been overclocking my 965 for awhile now just like everyone else having problems hitting 4Ghz im so close to getting it their i tried almost everything i set everything to stock and just raise multiplier to X20 and set the CPU voltage to 1.5 but still its not stable !!! i did 45mins and even a hour and after that bsod every time or just resets my computer im still new to overclocking but i learn a lot from my friend that i never even knew until now i even went out and brought a new heat sink to keep the temps low and still not stable !!!

my temps was hitting 62-63c max but i would just stop if it hit 63c i was using a zalman 9700 cooler but now im using a thermalright silver arrow and it doesn't even get close to my old temps at all stays 54-57c but still not stable !!

can anyone help with any good advice on how to get this thing stable i have a feeling this thing could reach 4ghz but im missing something im at 3.97ghz stable 1hour and 15mins prime95 so i must be getting close

You need to keep your tempatures under 60C as much as possible, you might need to try 1.52V on the CPU

Attempt to loosen up RAM timings and speed, change your HT link to 2000mhz.
Increase NB voltages and lower the NB speed to around 2000mhz. If the overclock is stable then you can slowly increase these while lowering voltages.

Is your processor a C3?

57c with a SilverArrow seems a bit too high, have you tried reseating the cooler?

Might want to try a fsb+multi combo to get to 4ghz, the cpu or motherboard might not like the x20 multiplier.
