Crashing!!! Help please

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have a huge problem with trying to use software based overclocking. I am very nubbish when it comes to OCing. But I know my rig is very capable of doing it and would like to know if im doing something wrong, what can be corrected, and how much more efficient I can get with my rig. I am looking for a couple of you guys or anyone who is just plain passionate about running systems at an amazing capacity. I do not need an elitist telling me im dumb. Just assume im a moron please. Hopefully one of you guys can skype with me and walk me through if it gets that bad. I understand some of how this all works and the purpose of it. I really think I just need some fine tuning.

-Backstory- I received my computer got it all hooked up and set everything up. Re installed all my hardwares drivers and stuff like that. I tried using the Nvidia GPU/CPU overclocking software that came with the GPU it makes my system crash. I also attempted the use of my ASUS Mobo OCing software as well and it crashed. I do not know what the problem is. When I Auto Tune using the ASUS software I get about 3.8Ghz out of it. But I don’t know if it corrects all the number crunching that I would imagine my ram, mobo, cpu, and gpu need to run fluid. I think that 4.2 Ghz is most likely achievable but maybe its not. Maybe 3.8Ghz is too much for a 6 core. IDK. What should I do, go straight into the BIOS and change things or just find a way to stabilize my rig via software provided. Im thinking that the softwares are conflicting. I shut down one then try the other. I would like to run my processor at like 4Ghz and possibly OC my GPU and RAM a little bit. I don’t know how to OC my GPU or my RAM so maybe you guys can help with that too. Below is my setup. I think that is pretty much everything you guys need to figure out why I suck. All help is greatly appreciated. I use this computer for "extreme" gaming.

AMD PHENOM II X6 1100T 3.3GHZ, 8GB(2x4GB) CORSAIR VENGEANCE 1600MHZ DDR3, HIS H687QNT1G2M RADEON HD 6870 (Crossfire is coming soon though), ASUS M4A87TD EVO 870 MOBO. Typically im running at 30*C-32*C I have never seen anymore than that.

I will update almost immediately after you comment so please stick around.

1) don't bother with crossfire, as the other slot will only run the graphics card @ x4.

2) Since your CPU is a black edition, you can simply change the multiplier without having to worry about memory being raised correspondingly. If you raise the base clock, then the memory will automatically raise it's frequency. This may lead to some stability problems if you don't drop the memory divider, or raise the voltage (if you have overclocking ram)

3) Keep a close eye on your temps. I see that you have watercooling, so you're in a good position already.

4) Do your overclocking in the bios. Set the memory voltage manually. Raise the Vcore setting to 1.45 and simply raise the cpu multiplier to 19 (this is 3800). Boot and see if it crashes. If it does, then go back and add some more vcore. If it doesn't, run a stress test to confirm stability. Repeat this process until you've discovered the limits of your CPU. You most likely will have to raise the voltage slightly to the north bridge as well.

[QUOTE=nakano2k1;15458869]1) This may lead to some stability problems if you don't drop the memory divider, or raise the voltage (if you have overclocking ram)


What is the memory divider, how and why do i drop it?
