Hey all,
Finally decided to try and push my 965 and understand overclocking it before I switch back to air cooling. Hopefully if I understand overclocking more then I'll get a tighter, more stable, and higher overclock on air.
I had a go last night but it froze preparing the desktop at 4Ghz. I tried varying the voltage in increments and found that at about 2.53 was the only voltage that it would get that far. I'm guessing that I need to raise the FSB but would love to start overclocking my ram too as it's some cheap samsung 1333. Also, don't want to try and mess around with too many settigns as when you dive in too deep you end up swimming for the side too quickly!

It's currently at 3.8Ghz at about 2.52V. This seems ridiculously high (the default is 2.5V at 3.4Ghz). But maybe because its a power hungry chip... o.O

BTW, I always recommend a small (80mm) spot fan on the VRM/NB heatsink on the UD3. There are a lotof folks speaking of stability issues and very high NB/VRM temps when pushing high OC's on the UD3


okay, and how can i see the NB temperatures?

I am very pleased by the board and it is realy stable but i am really concerned about the HT and bus speed drops because it did not do this before.

i will go look for an heatsink for the NB if i can find it.

Thnx for your advice smile.gif

Anytime smile.gif
You don't necessarily need to go find a NB heatsink, just put a spot fan on it, it works well. I as a rule spot fam the NB/VRM heatsink everytime. just find a quiet 80mm fan and put it up against it
like this:


My NB temps never see 40c

You upping the wrong voltage. Judging by the voltage you posted, I'd say your pushing the CPU vdda voltage...


your CPU voltage you don't want to exceed 1.55v for 24/7 use. But 3.8 on stock voltage ain't bad. Now up the right voltage a tad and shoot for 4ghz. Oh, and try to get at least 2.6 Nb as well... much speed...

Its on the front page of this club, good luck.

bahahahahahha I KNEW IT! I was sure I'd overclocked to 4.2 on my last board really basically by upping the multiplier and the voltage a little but I couldn't see CPU voltage because...

I DIDN'T SCROLL DOWN!!!!! doh.gifdoh.gifdoh.gif

Such a fool...

Anway, running it at 4.0Ghz at 1.5V now smile.gif Will try and up the FSB then run prime95 while I sleep tonight and see if i wake up to a charred wreck biggrin.gif

yeah I'm not sure what it is but I'm hardware monitor tmpin2 matches cpu package temperature, so my thoughts are that it's cpu temp.

Impossible. My system would have fried a long time ago, My 955BE would never be stable @ 4.0 Ghz if my CPU or Socket were hitting anything close to what TMPIN02 read's regularly on my board. Been up and running for well over a year like that too. It would have died or show massive sign's of degradation at those temps.

Stop bringing this up unless you have some shred of proof.


I'm thinking your CPU choice is to blame for your tmep's, rather than false labeling.

I'm thinking your CPU choice is to blame for your tmep's, rather than false labeling.

Because your link is any more proof than what we have experienced? Perhaps it is the CPU we are using however it doesn't change the fact that TMPIN2 matches CPU Package temperatures exactly in all situations. Have a look at these screen shots for yourself.

This would be at idle nothing at all going on.





This is all 8 cores loaded in Prime





This is 4 cores loaded in Prime





And finally this is all cores at idle just after stopping Prime completely. Which best shows what we observe. Take notice TMPIN1 is still 42C while TMPIN2 and CPU Package are both 23C






What does this prove? This proves that TMPIN2 matches the CPU Package temperatures identically. Perhaps TMPIN2 is package temp and TMPIN1 is core temp. I don't know, but what I do know is that I highly doubt my northbridge heats up and cools down as fast as the CPU does.
