x4 955 4.0ghz? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Check out the vrm links in xd's sig. This board likes to fail catastrophically when pushing high tdp chips. Back it down until you atleast have some vrm cooling.

3.8Ghz, stable seems to be about as far as it's going to go and I'm not gonna push it any further as you guys recommend. Guess it's time to start saving for something new :/

I have a MSI 890GXM-G65 mobo. 4Gb Corsair RAM.

I'm not a avid overclocker and don't have as much knowledge as I would like to have but I suppose that comes with time and practise

Can any of you give me some details on how, if it is possible, to get a 4.0Ghz overclock? What timings, vcore, nb voltage etc should be?
You may want to try moving alot of air through your H70. I can run under 50c with full load, (of course, the curtains across the room are moving) with enough air. Massive oc's are attainable with this cooler, but ditch the stock fans and get some big boys. If it's not achievable with <1.5vdc, I don't know that it's really worth the effort. I believe that with too much voltage (heat), you get into chip degradation. Good luck.

I don't know why temps where so high that day, when I was testing earlier on I was idiling at 35'c and Loading at 44'c. It was an exceptionaly hot day when I did the testing. I also cleaned a lot of dust out which helped bring it back down. Today is a much cooler day and temps are good.

I guess I'll start looking for a better mobo to get this puppy up to 4.0Ghz, seeing as my mobo isn't recommended to overclock it that far.

Good choice, and good luck, seen too many failures from people not listening

Hmm i dunno why your having so much trouble i hit 4, by just raising multi yo 1.43v try lowering your vcore to something arround mine and see what happens xD
post #18 of 19
Want a decent piece of advice? Reset every setting of your CPU to default, overclock it from scratch with little increments on the multiplier, vcore, FSB if needed, NB and so on... Aiming for 4GHz on the go is just insane and isnt even smart unless you are a trully experienced overclock with the kingsized brains that fit about any info about OC. Not calling you dumb or close to it, you just need to take it slow and do everything right. Doing it this way lets you know what is wrong and you can find out if you need more voltage or not. Remember that vdrop is also a known fact for BSODs.
Also 1.55v is way too much for a daily 24/7 overclock.

HI
Basically since i run this OC i have had a million and one problems.
Long story short, I got a new 6950, and had to reinstall windows so i dont even have that OC anymore.
But i have found a guide which explains everything quite well and in detail.
I was thinking that maybe i should OC over a week or two, as i am in college everyday and work at weekend so itf i oc over a week or two i should be able to take my time
Thanks for the advice and btw i was runnin at 1.43v thumb.gif
peace out dom.
