Worst AMD 965 BE? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Phenom II's love voltage, they just hate heat. Looking at your board, it lacks necessary cooling on the Mofsets I wouldn't try to push voltages just to be on the safe side, but other then that, I don't see any reason even a horrible C2 unlocked chip shouldn't be able to at least go higher then stock. I've gotten a 945 C2 up to 3.9 without breaking 1.55v, there must be something wrong in your settings. Possible BIOS screenshot before and after trying for 3.6?

You're having problems running this processor because this processor is NOT SUPPORTED on your board.

Due to a weak 4+1 unheatsinked VRM setup with low overall quality and other problems, the BIOS was not updated for 140W CPUs at all. Probably for good reason too - this design is known for problems.
You need a new board to properly run that 140W beast.

Bummer! I think you're right. Evil Fry's sold this bundle(CPU+MB) on their black friday just to make overclockers cry .

Can anyone suggest me a good motherboard with overclocking and SLI capacity? Should I go with AMD or Intel at this stage?

Thank you guys very much for all the advices.

Update: Disabled C1E/CnQ, 17.5x multiplier, freeze upon windows. This motherboard is a WEAK!

You're right. I'm being reckless right now.

For some reason, after I took out the lower clocked RAM(OCZ3P1333LV2G), I am able to put 18.5x multiplier and running Prime95 blend right now. It will probably fail, but it's interesting to see. If it doesn't fail, then I will be shocked! My computer is super slow right now running with 2gb RAM @ 1333Mhz(OCZ3P1600LV2G).

Hopefully it will pass at least 12 hours test.

I set my CPU voltage at 1.475V, NB CPU at 1.350V, and ram at 1.650V.
I'm not sure what do you mean maximum voltages available. Like the highest voltage for AMD 965 BE is 1.5V. Highest voltage for my NB CPU is 1.400V. I think ram is 1.650V.

Update:

Bummer! 18.5x multi/1.475V failed. Trying 18.5x multi/1.50V.

Update: I found out my pwer supplies is actually going bad. Can that be a reason why I can't overclock at all?
