Is my chip retarded?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
When overclocking my CPU, Ive discovered that no matter what the other variables, vcore, ram speed, Nb freq, NBcore, HT link speed, my cpu will not overclock on 17.5, 18, or 18.5 multipliers. But it will work on 16.5, 17, 19 and 19.5.

I had a BSOD on my 3.65 OC last night while playing BFBC2. So I decided to scrap the clock and just went with something COMPLETELY random. Old clock was: multi 17x, HTT210, Vcore 1.45, DDR 1680, HT link what in the 1950s and NB was I believe 2130?

So I went into the bios, reset everything. set HTT to 200, multi to 19, vcore to 1.47, NB freq to 2400 and set ddr clock to 1333. Had a few BSODs after like 40 minutes of prime so I raise the NB vcore from 1.118 to 1.15. BAM Rock solid clock at 3800! I can get it to boot to windows at 3900 but I get a BSOD after like 45 minutes of prime, So im assuming I can stabilize it with more voltage, I didn't go up much, got to late.

update your BIOS to 1902 and try again
