965 and asus m4a87td evo - Page 2

post #11 of 25
I have the same setup with the motherboard/cpu combo

I have found 2 acceptable multipliers that require manual voltage:

x19.0 - 3800mhz - 1.41v - runs about 56 Celsius for me.
x20.0 - 4000mhz - 1.64v - running at 62 Celcius right now. Fluctuates from 60 to 68 while under 100% load.

voltage is 1.64 btw. dunno why it displays differently.
365

Im pretty new to overclocking, so im trying to figure out a healthy alternative!

Feel free to get that NB freq up! they like it up there!

also here is a really good read that helped me immensely

1. By loading defaults for my BIOS is that overclock disabled

2. How the heck do I overclock on my mobo, I cannot figure it out. My past gigabyte boards have been much easier!


P.S. Im running a haf 912 case and about 6 fans appropriatly pushing/pulling with an aftermarket rocketfish CPU cooler that has been lapped with a thin layer of AS5 - is this enough?


1: Yes. You can however save overclock profiles and load them later.

 

2: Go to Jumperfree Configuration. For a quick overclock you can use the automatic profiles under AI Overclock Tuner. You should be able to go up to 10% (which should take you up to 3.7ghz). For a more manual overclock then raise the CPU Bus Frequency (FSB)/ or CPU Ratio (Multiplier). CPU Voltage is for your Core clock, CPU/NB Voltage is for your Northbridge clock (there should be an option for Northbridge frequency aswell though it doesn't show on this image).

 

Keep HT Link as close to 2000 as you can. Don't go any higher than around 2750 on your Northbridge (you can go higher but it may cause instability, I managed to get 3ghz).

Make sure under Chipset Configuration that you turn off Cool & Quiet. Don't bother with core unlocker etc as there's none to be unlocked on the 965BE.

3: Only your temperature readings can tell us that. Run Core Temp and Prime95 to see how hot it gets under load.

How in the hell did you get 8ghz with a 402 FSB? :O

I see that now. It was glitching for me. I was at 4.1ghz or something.
post #16 of 25
I am wanting to overclock my cpu and such but every time i get windows to boot up, it crashes when i prime95. I currently have it clocked to 3.7 with 216 CPU/NB bus, running stable. The problem for me is when I overclock my CPU, I don't know what voltage to set. I also tried using the bus ratio to 250, but it still doesn't work for me. I don't know what frequency to set my NB at or anything. I am wondering if I can get someone to lend a hand. I have the means to stream live from my phone!

I had the exact same setup as you. Here were my settings that I got 3.9 overclock out of. Keep in mind every chip has a different overclocking potential and you may want to try my settings but with a 17.5 or 18x multiplier to start with.

Cpu multiplier: 19x
FSB: 200
PCIE : 100
CPU/NB FREQ:2400
HTLINK: 2400
CPU VOLTAGE: 1.4125
CPU/NB VOLTAGE: 1.3 - 1.4 (HAVE TO TRY BOTH)
CPU VDDA :100 2.6V
HT VOLTS: 1.26
NB VOLTS:1 1.26
SB VOLTS:1 1.20 VOLTS

Hope this helps and cross your fingers for a good overclocking chip!!

I will try it when I get home from work. I totally just found out I can stream to my justin.tv account from my phone, so I can live stream my overclocking if anyone would like to help me figure this out :/

Your Hyper Transport Link (HT Link) is too high. You should drop it down to 2000. The sweet spot is 1800-2000 for optimal performance. There's actual evidence supporting this if you do a search.

 

Also you should go for 4ghz. The 965BE should reach it easily (mine can post at 4.2ghz but I'm waiting for my new RAM so I can make it permanent) and you have loads of room for raising the voltage to get it. You should also raise your FSB as it will improve overall system performance. I managed to get mine up to 250, my NB up to 3ghz (though I dropped it down to 2.75ghz until I get some better RAM and my CPU voltage is at 1.4625). I think my Northbridge Voltage is set at the same.

I tested the settings here and they are running fine with your modifications. It's running at 53 celcius at max load.
My info to validate this image are these:

Cpu multiplier: 19x
FSB: 200
PCIE : 100
CPU/NB FREQ:2400
HTLINK: 2000
CPU VOLTAGE: 1.4125
CPU/NB VOLTAGE: 1.3
CPU VDDA :100 2.6V - i have no idea what that is... no option for my mb
HT VOLTS: 1.26
NB VOLTS:1 1.25 my MB max is 1.25
SB VOLTS:1 1.20 VOLTS - dont have an option for this

Click that image for more details about my system.


Reminder, I can live stream my motherboard bios for you to see my comp if you'd like to lend a quick hand!
