The X6 that could? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Keyword: cheap. I need to buy a better motherboard if I hope to do bigadv. I tried HT from 1800 and lower, the motherboard just does NOT like going above 250. It went all the way through at 260 with 1.41 vCore but wasn't stable through 5 passes of IBT. 250 was also the limit with my 720BE.

You did change your divider to remove memory out of the equation right? Also have you bumped your CPU-NB voltage at all to help support the NB frequency changes? Also have you turned off all of your C&Q, Spread Spectrum, ETC?

Sorry for the questions, they are not to insult your over clocking skills. Just want to get a grasp and make sure the path was taken!

biostar 758GE 128m will not diasspoint.

It uses DDR2 like you have, and is renound for its HTT abilities. Many people who OC semprons on Ln2 use it because of their locked multi.

It will also be able to supply power to an OC'd X6 without issues. Plus its only like 60 bucks

Yes, and these HPC's overclock pretty well at 2.1V. Yes, yes and yes, all to no avail. I think the motherboard is just really basic; I initially bought it because it could unlock cores and supported surroundview, but it doesn't even like surroundview when I had it enabled with my 5450 :-/

The gigabyte in my sig rig does 285 fsb all day every day. I don't think the vrm's would hold up well with an x6, but they seem to do fine with my sig rig at 1.5v.

Your DDR2 memory is holding you back, so therefore so is your motherboard...is the X6 even supported on that board? Really though if you are running an Thuban X6 you should be at least running DDR3 1600 memory. Take advantage of that improved IMC.

The X6 is supported and it's working, IBT says 60 Gflops on high which is about right with the ram. You are right though, I need a new motherboard and ram.
