post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
i have a problem im trying to learn how to overclock and its not workng good the only thing i reall know how to do is change multiplyers and vcor voltages and run stress test

my rig is
750 watt psu
phenom ll x4 970 be 3.5ghz with a v8 cpu cooler
8 gb ram 1066
gigabyte 890gpa-ud3h mobo
radeon hd 6950 2gb soft bios mod to 6970

now my problem is the proccessor is at 201x17.5 and the vcore is 1.35 i can not get a stable clock at any othermultiplyers and temperature is no where near a problem and my lowest decimal to raise the vcore brings me up to 1.400v and i was told thats the max for my processor
now i understand that some processors are harder to overclock then others but i cant even get it up to 3.6 ghz at 201x18 multiplyer it crashes on prime 95 after 45 minutes

please help me out i really want to learn how to do this stuff. without frying my processor. thank u.:confuse d:

1.4v isn't the max for your processor at all, you will be fine as high as 1.55, although you should try and stay under 1.5v in order to have nice low temps.

If you're new you may want to take a look at the Phenom II Overclocking Guide

-Go into advanced settings in BIOS and switch off C1E and CoolNQuiet.
-For 3.6 you should set your vCore to 1.4v, and if that's stable (It almost definitely will be) lower it until you find the lowest it can go
-Use your baseclock to overclock, your current value is 201, you can raise this, as the multiplier multiplies this value to give you your effective clockspeed (3.6)

Keep temps under 55 if you can but DEFINITELY under 62!

the thing about overclocking Phenom IIs is that when the temps are lower, you can get more speed for less volts and still be stable


make sure your temps are what you should be getting with that cooler

if it isn't, you may need to reseat it and reapply the thermal paste. even the best of us get it wrong once in a while

What memory do you have exactly? Is it 2 sticks or 4 sticks? Have you properly set the frequency, timings, and voltage to what the kit is rated for? If you're using 4 sticks, I recommend increasing the CPU-NB voltage to 1.3v.
