i7 920 Stable clock with BC2. Need help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My first post here. I have researched about 20+ hrs on my question and still can't find a solution. I'm still learning about overclocking and all the settings so please go easy on me if I stumble.

I have oc'ed my 920 to 3.8 and all test work fine on Prime 95. temps keep right at 70 or under whole time. No BSOD's. Everything works great until I start to play BC2. after about 5 -20 mintues my screen just freezes and I have to do a hard restart.

I have tried so may voltage setting and nothing seems to work. When I set everything back to Auto, I have no problems. Seems to be the only problem I am having is with BFBC2.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

My suggestion is to start at a lower clock, say 3400MHz and play for an hour or so and then go from there... Have you been able to play on other overclocks or just 3.8?

I am wondering if that 3 x 4gb ram kit is holding you back in your overclocks.
Also, is your chip a D0 revision? Check CPUz, it is fairly important you have that revision because they tend to clock better and with less voltage.

I left most of my values at [Auto] for my 3.4ghz overclock and I got that super easy, sitting at 1.128v in Windows. Did you specify all/most of your values or did you also leave most at default [Auto] setting? BIOS pictures of your most successful settings may be helpful for the pros on OCN to help you to pin down a stable OC.

I'll just step aside now and hopefully someone that has a lot of experience with the 1366 platform will chime in to help you along further.

Cheers.

Good, BIOS pics; I see right off the batt PLL voltage is a little high. according to this thread PLL is fine around 1.8 - 1.88.

Yeah, I just put the link up to my bios settings. It is D0 revision. I took the ram down to 8 from 12.

Got mine up to 3.2ghz. Temps idle around 37c. Gameplay the temps run up to 48c. Bus speed is 160, bus/core 20,
cpu volts 1.376, memory running 1600 mhz.
The box was unstable until I raised my cpu voltage to 1.3 in bios.
