Overclocking issues with the 560BE

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
As the title says above..

I tried many different ways into overclocking my pc below and none seen to work to where im trying to get it at

Currently I can overclock the CPU to 3.74GHZ @ 1.5v HT Link @ 1070mhz and bus speed at 214 x 17.5

And I am trying to get to 4ghz without any issues and so far I cant do it.

Ive tried messing with the current overclocking options and manually adjusting the gauges(by this i mean the actual speed and the multiplier along with the voltages)

I can boot into windows at 4ghz+1.57v but when i try to do a stress test one of two things happen

After going up to 1.59v i figured that it cant be the voltage but something else
And due to my HT Link limitation I cant change its multiplier(well I haven't found a stable frequency)


1. BSOD
2. Stress test fails on a random core (literally random..)

I cant tell if its just my cpu having issues, the board having issues, or maybe both..

Any ideas?

That Nvidia chipset is default to 1ghz, however the NB is 2ghz

ht link needs to be at 2000mhz....but read thses they will help alot smile.gif

i suggest after you read..reset bios and start from scratch so you get a good stable complete oc

Alright so after reading all those, and trying out more various settings, I found that i STILL cannot OC anywhere past 3.8ghz

Actually I landed directly on 3.8ghz but i cannot go any farther. I do have a newer chip that can scale up to the 4k range and also my HT link being the Nvidia version has a limit of 1ghz, the NM Buss is 2ghz, or double whatever the HT Link is.
I cannot bump up the HT Link past 1120mhz because my machine wont post.

I figured now it might just be the ram causing the issue.
I have ddr3 1333 ram and pushed it up to 1600 however i really see no difference still.

Maybe I just cant overclock on this board.

if youre at 3.8ghz stable, i'd be happy and keep it there.
it isnt an overclocking dream. it's a cheap board made to overclock some, the same with my old m4a785-m. it'll overclock, just dont expect to go very high.

posted in reviews on newegg:
..........................................................................
Pros: though i didnt get it from newegg . price is cheap but build quality is good . got it to replace my mobo that died on my hp6320 computer . mounting holes lined right up . unlocked 2mb of l3 cache on my phenom 820.oced my cpu to 3.5ghz temps never got pass 57c while using intelburn test 50 passes and thats with stock cooler and stock hp case

Cons: if your into ocing to the extreme this is not the board for you . got my phenom 820 2.8ghz up to 3.5ghz on this baby anything higher it will not post . so if your looking for higher oc dont get this board. if your having trouble ocing drop down the ht mulit to 4x this board cant handle high ht frequency . ht mulit x fsb = your ht frequency keep it as close to 1000mhz as possible .and mess with volts and youll be fine.

Other Thoughts: for the price i paid wich was 30 bucks . really happy with purchase .

sorry but you get what you pay for.

Actually this board can do 4.2.. its just that I cant do it on all four cores
Also I fear I have a weak core, or its my voltage.
As I was overclocking core 3 shut down twice, I think that core cant handle it so im testing the others now.

EDIT: alright so after playing with the NB me being stupid happened to have the NB going up in frequency instead of heading downward
That lead to a whole bunch of issues but anyways i DID managed to get it stable at 4ghz, the only problem is it began to draw more power than I had set for it to draw, which i found odd.
Im not sure if thats the bios letting the CPU draw over the limit i had set or its a glitch with CPU Z

I had the Vcore set to about 1.53 and while i was doing stress testing it drew around 1.54-1.57 max

And since the safe zone is below 1.55, Im not sure if i should keep it at 4ghz now. or anything.
it also doesnt really add up.
I turn off two cores and only draw about 1.42v, with a third on its around 1.48 but with all four its 1.57?

Anyone have ideas to that?
