So I OC'd my northbridge... - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've pushed it to 3.2ghz at 1.45v but it randomly started bsoding. I guess I'll keep it at this till I get enough to buy a phenom II x4 smile.gif

And I am altering ram speed I try to keep it to as close to stock that I can.

I'd start over again with your OC.

Reset to default and disable all the power saving stuff like usual + any storage config.

Then set your ram to the lowest speed. (Set timings to the rated 1333 timings though)
Set Vcore to 1.4v
Set Northbridge to 1.4v
Set LLC to Normal (Think that was the one that kept it from spiking volts or dropping volts the best for me)
Then increase FSB by 10 (but lowering clock speeds to close to stock each time, also lower FSB and HT to near 2000 each time)
Test 20-30 mins in Prime95
Repeat until you get to 260 FSB
Test in Prime for 2-3 hours for stability
Start increasing cpu clock multiplier up by 1
test 30 mins
Repeat until Prime95 fails then go back one
test for 24h stability in Prime95 small

Increase Northbridge and run prime95 blend to test stability


With FSB running at 260 your ram will be slightly overclocked to 1388 (even though you set it to the lower speed) and you can choose to OC timings later if you please.
Run Memtest86+ overnight to ensure stability.



260 FSB resulted in the best balanced overclock for me.

You should end up with similar clocks to me I would think.
