Yet a another thread about Phenom II 955 OC - Page 2

post #11 of 14

Hmmm, that is true, my prime threads don't complete at the same time, i always assumed that was due to me using the computer, internet, videos, etc...
I thought the advanced clock calibration was something to ajust each core clock individually?

Can you elaborate on that please?

I know it takes more time, but you need to go slower. When you make big changes to more than one thing, you won't know what {b}your[/b] chip really needs to be stable. 63* is the max temp, but it's hard to get stable over something near 55*. Slow little changes will get you to an overclock that will last a long time.

Yeah, i know that, that's why im trying to start from the beginning, and am doing as suggested, first overclocking my cpunb, and then going for the cpu OC, since raising the cpunb speed and volts may help with cpu stability itself.

I wish i could go liquid cooling here, so that my temps wouldn't give me stability issues.

So i just did some fast (3hours) prime95 blend test, 2048k to 4096k

to check stability of the IMC @ 2600mhz and 1.4v, cores at stock. All good at 47 load!

Now im going slow, upped the multi to 18x, same voltage on everything. and doing some more prime blend 2048k to 4096k. Temps still maxing out at 46~47. How many more hours till i try 3.7 or 3.8, and hopefully achieve 4.0ghz and 2.6 nb.

So I left prime run blend for 12 hours. at 3.7ghz cpu and 2.6ghz nb @ 1.425v the cpu ( 1.4 it crashed) and 1.4v nb.

Going for 3.8ghz now, should I raise the VDDA voltage?
