Breaking 4ghz is really my only goal; I am not interested in benchmarking or other stressful applications for a computer.
I am merely trying to build a rig that uses fairly nice components, mostly last gen, that will last a few years without performance being an issue for daily use. This can include microsoft office apps, web browsing, and music/video entertainment through flash based apps online. The most intensive game I run is Skyrim (which I got running on a pentium 4), most that I play are a little older. Very few titles interest me as most video games seem redundant to me either in content, gameplay, or sometimes both.
I understand the need for scrutiny when overclocking. If the way I intend to use this setup is incompatible with its design please let me know.

what is up with Skyrim? i may have to dive on the game now that it is on sale.

oh, i think our rig will last us a couple of years at least. i game using 4 cores oc'ed to 4 -4.3 GHz. haven't seen much improvement using 6 cores. higher temps were what i get and a little improved mnimum fps. not worth it imo. i do use six in photoshop.

edit: and what is up with the political ads?

Skyrim is pretty good. There is a company called SureAI and they make a full overhaul for Oblivion called Nehrim: At Fates Edge. I got 80+ hours out of it; it is a whole different game in a whole different universe; they are making a sequel that uses the Skyrim engine, too.

What political ads do you speak of?

I have six cores so that I can run Spiral Knights on steam and music at the same time. The game is run on java and all graphics are rendered by the CPU, the 2 extra cores have shown to negate the lag I used to get while playing music on youtube and that game at the same time.

i see, you do need all six cores. thanks for the info on skyrim.

i always see the first family when i log on. this site suppose to be free of such political stuff but i guess if they get income from it, then it helps the ocn community as well. just have to vent. sorry.

Thread Starter 
I run 6 cores in winter to help heat my room biggrin.gif

other than that, I keep her locked to an X3 at 2.2 most of the time in the summer. 99% of my video game time is CS:S and it plays it maxed out at 200+ FPS still tongue.gif

Skyrim only uses three cores, it seems. Same with GTA 4. I just OC it to 4.4 when I wanna play those.

Photoshop, folding, and bechmarking is the only time I open up the other cores.

About 12 hours into blend on prime95 with the following settings:

FSB 250*16 for 4000 @ 1.44V (says 1.425 in bios, open hardware monitors shows that it occasionally peaks at 1.456V)
FSB 250*10 for 2500 @ 1.275V for both NB and HT Link
FSB 250*5.33 for 1332 9-9-9-24-33-2 @ 1.536V (again, 1.5 in bios, monitor says diff)
In the RAM settings I hade to bump the refresh cycle time from 160ns to 300ns to get a stable FSB over 240.

I have reason to believe that 300 is stable and possibly a little higher.

I am not willing to go any higher on the Vcore right now because of temperatures; they mostly stay around 50C but will linger around 55C for small periods of time.

Are there any recommendations that others have for more efficient settings?

i had the same vcore for hex 4GHz with the 212+ push/pull. i thnk those settings are ideal. what's your ambient temp?

and are your rams rated for 1333, again?

i recommend saving those settings inside bios. make a profile of it. looking good!

They are rated 2133 10-11-10-28 @1.5V
Was hoping to get something that could be stable at lower frequency than 2133 but with tighter timings.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I gather any frequency over 1333 does not benefit this chip/chipset; that my efforts would be best spent getting as low a number as I can with regard to the timings.

The lowest temp I've seen on it was around 24C with the door off and maybe 25C with it on. I live in Texas and it's pretty hot this time of year. What I set my AC to and the room temp will vary; the house is around 50 years old. We have it set to around 26C.

I keep it under 1.45v for 24/7 and gaming use, and under 1.55v for benchmarking. She's keeping up nicely so far.
*edit*
My mobo started smelling funny after this one. So much for 4+2 VRMs. Still is running fine but I quit for now redface.gif

My first core is good up to 4.8 but all the other cores aren't as awesome.
For me, (stable, not benchable) the worst core (Core 5) and the best core (Core 0) is about a 700Mhz difference.


Man,you had me going for a minute,had to search the thread.I just knew there was no way that thing would post with 6 cores at 4.8. under 1.6v. Great job,and a great chip.that thing needs to be frozen thumb.gif

More stability testing. Due to the insane summer heat, I've had to scale back my clocks/cores to keep the room (or entire place actually) from turning into a sauna.

4ghz @ only 1.312v... not too bad. Never broke 38*C

BIOS Settings:

CPU = 1.325
CPU/NB = 1.325
Ram = 1.310 <--- Not a typo
Everything else stock

i think your mobo can handle up to 1600. copy ka24e's settings (post #1699) and call it good. if it boots. and might as well close the door.
