Nice. biggrin.gif My chip is unstable at 3813 with 1.38v -- needs a bump to 1.39v-1.4v.

Seems like your chip is happy with low voltages. smile.gif

I'm wondering if a faster set of ram say 1866Mhz would increase my potential OC headroom.

Your CPU-Z screenshot has you just with a raised multiplier. Are you even OCed past the stock 1333? I'd see how your RAM overclocks first before ditching it ... even then, is the cost for a new set of RAM worth the extra 1%?

Does your motherboard not allow dividers? confused.gif

It does but this ram doesn't OC very well, I set it at 1600Mhz and I get random BSODs even with upped voltages and I've followed guides on how to tighten timings and tightening the timings on this ram is very difficult and doesn't yield good results upon success. redface.gif

And new RAM would fix that? tongue.gif

99% of users will never notice the difference between DDR3-1333 9-9-9-24 or DDR3-1600 6-6-6-14. If you're aiming for breaking world records in Super Pi, then yes, definitely get new RAM. If not, then your money would be better spent on something else. smile.gif

Lol K tongue.gif

However this deal is hard to pass up:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231501

I have a feeling I have a lot of potential headroom but I still don't know enough about Advanced overclocking, I know that messing with Ram Timings,NB, and HT can help stabilize a high OC but I don't know as of yet how to correctly tweak them to achieve the highest stability for my overclock.

My settings are as follows:

CPU Speed: 4013.7Mhz
FSB: 200
Multi: x20.0
HT: 2006Mhz
NB: 2600Mhz
Vcore: 1.55v

Memory:
Speed: 1333Mhz
Timings: 8-8-8-20-27-1T
Voltage: 1.66v

I know overclocking through the FSB with supplementary modifications in Multi should help stability and honestly I went through a 5 hour session of messing with settings and it seems that anything past 4.0 causes BSODs. I was able to get into windows with 4.2Ghz and 1.6v but any testing with Prime95 caused BSODs or "worker six stopped" errors in Prime95.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated, Ty thumb.gif

Do you want the capacity boost too? If you do then go for it. biggrin.gif After the 25% off it's about what I paid for my kit ... and an extra 500+ Mhz smile.gif

The capacity boost isn't an issue but seriously? 16GB of DDR3 2133Mhz for $100 is really nice.

Edit:
I edited my prior post to include information regarding my OC. wink.gif

Whats your CPU-NB voltage? 2600 is a nice overclock and if you're running stock volts, that might be your problem. For 2950Mhz I need 1.325v.

Chips don't use voltage linearly. The higher you clock your chip, the harder it is to get more and the more voltage it requires. The first 500Mhz might need a .03v bump, the second 500Mhz might need a .1v bump. You probably noticed that when you OC.

That being said, the fact you're chip isn't stable at 4Ghz with less than 1.55v leans to the notion your chip might be at its max OC. You might be able to get 200Mhz more, but not realistically -- you'd need .2v+ to get any noticeable headroom.

That being said:

Drop your multi and raise your FSB. You might not get any higher than your current OC for the CPU, but a higher FSB and a lower multiplier is faster than a lower FSB and a higher multiplier at the same CPU frequency.

2700mhz NB
1800 DDR3, didn't mess with timings yet
2160 HT
890FXE motherboard. i may be able to get it to 4.3 with a lot more voltage but it's not worth it to me.
obviously i'm a bit disappointed in the unlocking (i am now 0-4 in terms of unlocking chips) but i'm very happy with how well this chip overclocks.
