Phenom 970 BE, 4.2ghz, 45 deg load, NB 1.2V- questions - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
Tried to use 3000 mhz for NB, could never boot, tried all the way up to 1.45 CPU NB volts.

Just need to check with you guys if these changes are safe

4.2Ghz load temp 44 degrees
CPU NB: 2600mhz
CPU NB: 1.3V
CPU Core: 1.475V
OCCT went through fine for over 1r 30mins

and then I tried to get to 4.3ghz
OCCT is almost 20mins thru with these settings, although not so sure if there on the safe side, it needs to run 24/7.

4.3Ghz load temp 48 degrees
CPU NB: 2800mhz
CPU NB: 1.45V
CPU Core: 1.525V

Forgive me for commenting this way, but, that's a lot of wattage for a server... tongue.gif

LavcoPriceTech did a review of the Frio OCK, it was actually not as good as the standard frio, it was usually 4-5C higher, but you have plenty of voltage headroom

I watched that review, it almost made me get the normal frio but the reviews from tweaktown and a few other places changed my mind.

What do you mean by plenty of voltage headroom, what can I still increase.

Did a bios update then tried the 4.3ghz setup as mentioned, after 35mins it bsod'd me, so decided to go back to the 4.2ghz setup, left team viewer running before I went home, but can't connect to it, so thinking that setup now bsod'd me too.

Going to have to re-do my lil result chart thing thanks to the new bios *sigh*.

This is true lol, overclocking wasn't part of the initial plan, but with so much potential of the cpu and cooler, how can you say no?

It's going to be quite an adventurous and experimental setup, going to use OpenIndiana (basically the same as SolarisExpress made by Oracle, but open source), for the ZFS file system, and setup some Raid-Z arrays, apparently faster than a hardware raid-5. Have 5x2TB and 5x1TB drives each in Raid-Z.
DF-85 has enough slots, and I'm just using one 5.25" bay for another 3.5".

Just want to get a good overclock down, before I order in my 2tb drives, and call it a day.

that motherboard will be holding you back from a high stable overclock. get some heatsink and cool down the vrm. it should help you out as well. better cpu cooling and good 8+2(8pin) power phase and vrm cooling will enhance better chance at overclocking your cpu.

Sound about right, got this mobo because it has 6+2 sata ports on board + 2 esata which I'm using esata to sata cables to total 10 sata ports on board (have a raid card too) and good price point, going to have to dial it down to 4.0 or 4.1, and leave it as that. Will have a stab at stabilizing 4.2 seems do-able.

Tempted to do a similar setup to actually use for daily computing, obviously with a better motherboard, and def not a full tower case.

Had to google vrm heatsinks, how would that benefit me overclocking the cpu? Not sure about the benefits of good power phases, need to do some googling to understand better. If you have any good articles or links on this, feel free to send them this way smile.gif
