Hey 66racer

Hey there, honestly read what i put with firestorm1. Basically looks like you might just need to try a bump in cpu-nb, Safe limit is said to be 1.4-1.45 but I have mine at 1.33 (llc 1.35v) for cpu-nb at 3055mhz. Also want to say your going to need to try to take the cpu-nb speed up, AT LEAST 2600 easy, 2800mhz might need 1.30v+ But if you leave it at 2000 try 1.20-1.25v

the details are in the last page or 2 though

edit, or and also try cpu voltage at 1.43-1.45

might want to try cpu llc at extreme and 120% for now cpu-nb is ok but if you overclock it you might want to try setting it at extreme also and 120%

In response to my request for information on how to bump my 4.0GHz up to 4.2 or so, I thank you for the information thumbsupsmiley.png

 

I increased the Ic profiles to 120% and switched from 'High' to 'Extreme' as well as changed the CPU-NB Vcc and speed to 2800 +/- and now got a rock solid (post 2 hours of COD MW3) system running @ 4.240GHz. I think that is far as I want to push it. In all honesty, there is most likely 'zero' difference [to the eye] when comparing 4.0 and 4.2GHz while gaming, so this is perfect. I know I could go further, but why. I am not one to complain if I only achieve a consistent 50FPS throughout a game rolleyessmileyanim.gif

 

Tnx much

so are you guys overclocking through the bios or are you using AI Suite?

I used the ai suite to apply the settings in the digi+vrm. Then went in bios and played around with the rest of the settings.

ok, thanks.
i have always used the bios, so i am not sure how stable it is using AI Suite.
seems like noone has been having problems so i will give it a shot.
i still havent found the sweet spot yet, been trying mult/fsb/combo, but i seem to push it too hard and she crashes.
i need to spend the time one day and just get it done right-lol
i might just end up getting a 1100T, if i dont sell this system first.

ai suite is nice for on the fly oc'ing. not having to reboot everytime is pretty cool in my book. the settings that you make and apply in the digi+vrm will save in the bios in real time. the settings in the turboV EVO section will not, once you reboot, those values will go back to what you had it before. that has to be don through the bios. but its a neat little tool regardless.

Cpu-nb is inside the cpu, i have mine set to 1.33v at the moment, so long as your in cpu-nb your good. Thats where I was mentioning some people say 1.4 is even 24/7 safe but I would rather stay no higher than 1.37-1.38
