What can I do to push it farther?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok.. just got my Silverstone 120mm for my BT and it shaved about 8-9 degress off my max temp.. SWEET. So now I have a little more head room for OC. I currently have it at 2.8 but if I try to go any higher it either fails prime or wont boot into windows. What else can I adjust to try to squeeze some more out of it? Here is my current info.

Maybe setting your CAS to 3.

That's odd, your package appears to be Toledo, yet your L2 is 2 X 512.

Yeah bump your timings to 3 and bump up your ram voltage one notch. Other then that I think you're maxed out, that's still a very impressive overclock as I can barely hit 2.4Ghz on my X2 3800 (I have anger issues to work out now)

I think his timings are in order as he is running a divider, but what do I know?

It's just a Toledo with half of the L2 disabled.

Could possibly be a 4800 X2 with a crippled L2 cache. They just named it 3800+ and underclocked it.

Nice overclock by the way

That's a REALLY nice OC for a 3800. I doubt you'll be able to get much more out of it. Probably not worth it to push the vcore any higher to get only a couple mhz out of it.

Congrats on a great OC!

Ok, I will try the memory adjustments. I too think I may be at my max, but I am more than happy with what I am at right now. I was a little annoyed when I got the chip and it was a Toledo and I ordered a Manchester, but this chip has done very well for me so far.
