yeah i goggled his settings before and they seem very extreme.

2thAche: ok what is MCH? I have a ASUS MOBO so the names might be different, so my other voltages are fine so I should just lower the North Bridge and set it manually?

MCH = North Bridge/ NB. Yes set it manually. Everything is best set manually.

ok i ran into stability issues. I pushed the north bridge core to v 1.49 and had 400 fsb and 1.2500cpu v core and I am still unstable. intelburn test fails between 1 and 30 runs.

Do i push further? to like 1.52 and beyond. is 1.62 that dangerous? in my mobo it is highlighted in red when I got past 1.59.


I reverted to 3.0ghz and my north bridge voltage on auto is 1.46.

I've heard of X38s needing alot of NB voltage.

It's failing at 3.2? Bump your multiple to 7x, run 400FSB and see if you still fail. If so, you have a mem/NB issue. If not, it's CPU.

I ran Intel burn test when my CPU was at 3 ghz and it was fully stable. So its my CPU or mem? I am only unstable past 3ghz. The only time it was stable was at voltage 1.25 and NB on auto voltage.

If you decrease your CPU multiplier to 7x, you can run 400 FSB at 2.8GHz CPU and see if your NB/RAM are stable. Use Prime Blend, I don't use IBT so I don't know what settings will hit RAM/NB.

If it crashes at 7x/400, your NB or RAM are unstable, not the CPU.
