wth...? Try this: in windows, make sure your power settings are on performance or go in and set min/max processor to 5/100. then post, load default settings (you save these after clr cmos - right?). exit savinbg and boot to windows. let it settle. open cpuz and realtemp, or download open hardware monitor, and post a screenshot with it at idle, and then start p95 and post a screenshot with Z and temp (or OHM) showing while under load.

if you see 16x at idle and 38 (or whatever) under load - good. repost to bios, all cores, multi to 40, spreadspectrum off, turn off all sleep states except C1E. No other changes. post to bios - what does the multiplier/clock speed say on the first page of the bios?

oops - I see you are going elsewhere. good luck!thumb.gif

No I'll still be checking in this thread lol. I'm just posting in multiple places hoping for a solution. The issue is that I can't manually set the multiplier above 38. It only goes higher in the BIOS if I use the automated OC settings, but even when I do that the BIOS seems to be lying since there's no OC when I go into Windows and use p95.

I am not trying to be insulting, so please don't take it that way, but sometimes its best to eliminate the simple things, of which I am particularly guilty of according to my wife.

Just verify that you:

click the light blue box--->type two digits-->hit enter

can you try changing your BCLK to like 101.5 or something safe but over 100?

man i think im gonna start trying to do this with 1 stick of ram and eliminate as much outside interference as possible... seeing inedenimadam's settings. Im NOWHERE near that **** even at 4.6. something is throwing errors. I dont suspect its the chip.

I too had an occasion where my setting wasn't actually applied, although it displayed correctly in the bios. It was kinda stuck on one multiplier, but I was able to solve this with a reset to default. It didn't show any of the other symptoms though, and luckily hasn't occurred since.
There is one thing that is still happening, when I set the multi to exactly 38, it doesn't really register and will run at the default clock. Higher or lower works fine again. It seems that 38 is simply assumed to be the turbo multiplier then.

Yup. When I hit enter it switches to 38 automatically. I was able to change the BCLK to 101.5 but I didn't see an actual increase when running prime95. Still ran at the default 3600.

I lucked out, its not golden like the ones they are coming up with in China, but I ain't whining.

Definitely, if something is not right pull EVERYTHING that is not absolutely necessary and start over. If you have a spare HDD you can run, wipe it and do a fresh install with just the barebones. Run iGPU and 1 stick RAM with stock timing, with just the one fresh windows HDD.

I had a bad RAM stick and was running 4.5Ghz @ 40mV over what I should have been, because I kept getting BSOD's and thinking I needed more VCORE.

Dang, I really don't know what to tell you, I wish I could help, but you might have to find someone smarter than I to get this one sorted out. Sounds like a BIOS bug that requires RMA.

I agree that the first thing to do (I think you already did?) is to do a complete reset... not push the button, but PULL the BIOS JUMPER. Look at the manual and proceed according to page 31. Then... make sure all stock works. repost -> change the multiplier.

Please don't suggest purchasing new components, as that is not an option at the moment. Right now, I want to get this rig running faster. I can mess with all kinds of options in my BIOS, just not vcore (unless it's being called something completely different in BIOS). Can anyone help me out on this?

Yea my last cpu was an E8500 E0 so i can try and help you. You can PM or post some photos of your bios so i can take a look. IIRC the G41 was not a great board for overclocking, most used a P35 or P45

Any higher than that, and the screen stays blank (nothing at all on my screen & monitor still in standby). I can set a multiplier as low as 6 and as high as 9.5, but none of them can get over 3.26Ghz....Does anyone know of a way to get past this? I really want to see what this CPU can do....

Even w/ an E0, 4.5 on air is quite hard for 24/7. I clocked mine up to a max of 4.3 and tried to stabilize at 4.22ghz but temp were just too high so i ran it at 4.03ghz for 24/7.
