can you help me reach 4ghz or 3.8??? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Yup. Overclocking the CPU is the first step. You don't need to stop there. 4GHz and stock HT/NB/RAM may be much slower then 3.5GHz on the CPU, say, 2.2GHz on HT, and tighter ram timings. Its all about trial and error, and BENCHMARKING.

not exactly true.
you get more performance from a cpu at 3.6g and a cpu-nb at 2800 than you do with the cpu at 3.8 and the cpu-nb 2400

You can state this to a fact for his CPU, Motherboard, and Memory setup?

its a fact. you can read this in EVERY phenom 2 overclocking guide
the higher you clock the cpu-nb, the further the imc opens up, the more throughput. where full throttle is, is where youll see the limits.

*edit* and you want to keep the ht link at 2000 +/- 100. under NORMAL circumstances, it causes instabilities in MOST cases.

thanks!!!


its good practice to keep your load temps at 55* or less. they usually start losing stability right around that point.
voltage ? only your chip knows what it needs. thats where the fun comes into overclocking.

read gappos guide that fox linked. 1 of THE best.
also, quick stability checking as you progress. it isnt for finding 100%, its too find out if its possible to go higher.
