going to lower reference clock to get my next stable oc =p down to 4009mhz T 1.35 volts
There's no way you'll get it stable at 4009 with 1.35Vs

yeah i dont know why prime never made me bsod before but now small fft makes bsod after 5 mins.

just glad my temps are hovering around 52-53 right now

Are your gpus overclocked?

I would look to them before thinking its a cpu issue. Your Phenom II is going to be a bottleneck even at 4Ghz in that game, so any increase in cpu speed will place more load on the gpus.

ive tried it stock and at overclock still crashed my drivers but once i tone down the clock the drivers dont crash anymore. not exactly sure if its from the cpu or gpu since i dont bsod but have confirmed that my oc wasnt stable.

hopefully my new oc will have fixed the problem. sitting at 3984@1.35 and its been great for 45 mins. hopefully for another 6 ish hours

Try returning everything to stock, then overclocking each component on its own.

i compared my stock GTX 710/1400/1800 to my oc 840/forgot/2080 and i only get like 3 fps so im not even going to oc that anymore.

just my cpu for now. prob not even my northbridge :[ too noob


EDIT: how long should i run small fft? i know blend id for around 6 hourd but my friend just told me that an hour was ok

Your cpu is probably always going to be the bottleneck, leave the gpus at stock and focus on the cpu.

Try for 4Ghz with 1.5v or less, and 2.8GHz NB at 1.35v or less, work up one at a time, use your multipliers instead of fsb so it's easier.

Depends on what you deem stable enough, I hardly stability test myself. After I figure out a few voltages/settings I just wing it for other clocks but my chip is a bit different. I've been running 4.85Ghz 24/7 with 2 games macro'ing on my side screens for about three weeks now while using my main screen for other games like Medal of Honor/BFBC2/Dirt 3. I haven't BSOD yet, and I didn't do any stability testing at all at these settings/voltages/clocks.

The NB is very important for Phenom II's, spend a few days trying to get those clocks 4Ghz core/2.8Ghz NB, it will be well worth the effort.

what should i do about hyper transport? and how do i test nb stability?

LinX all mem selected, and Prime95 Large FFT will both stress the NB well.

Keep hyper transport at 2000, to make it easier for you just leave your fsb at 200 and change the multi for the cpu and nb.

If you can't get 4GHz stable, shoot for slightly less. The NB is more important than a few 100 MHz on the cores.

but if i only change the multiplier i wont be able to get precise overclock right? my mobo doesnt do .5 multipliers
