Ref. clock raising = pci problems?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

my highest stable oc is 3,945 CPU/2660NB/1900HT LINK at ref clock 263MHz. Everything works fine, except that my audigy 2 zs acts weird. It crashes BF2 and when on normal (200 or 210 ref clock) freq, it works without problems.

And the question is: is raising REF CLOCK affecting PCI ports (oc them?). What to do if i want to save both my oc and my audigy?


Thanks in advance!

What is the default HT speed? I thought it was 2000 - keep the HT at the default speed.

Also you have not touched the PCIe frequency?

Standard HT speed is 2000, but the next multiplier is giving my 2130 (as far as I remember), so i don't know which to choose: majority of guys says, that it gives very little or no performance boost but also it is better to keep it le to standard 2000MHz to avoid stability problem.

PCI-E is standard 100MHz, but i think that's not the problem because my audigy is a simple PCI (not PCI-E x1) card.

No, they aren't... moreover, it happens couple of seconds after win start, or even the audigy isn't recognized as system.. NB is at 1.26V (1.2V standard). SB without any changes.
