Phenom II X4 945 OC Help - Page 2

I told you to bump up the NB voltage to 1.3 smile.gif

take the HT bus off of auto. Put everything on manual.

Put your PCI-e freq to 100


Since your chip isn't a black edition, overclocking will be harder...
It's possible that you may just have a bad chip.

I DO know that there happens to be a 955 BE for $80 shipped on the OCN MP if you're interested though.

That was just a pic to show you the options. When I was testing the NB/HT at 2410MHz I changed the voltage to 1.3V. I left the HT bus width on auto because the only choices are 8 bit and 16 bit?

I chose 16-bit, turned the pci-e freq down, turned the NB/HT back up and the NB V back to 1.3 and it quickly failed.

I guess I just got a bad chip, or a bad something at least. Unless I up the voltage >1.5V, I'm pretty sure I'm stuck here. At least I'm certain of that now, haha. The 955 wouldn't be worth it for a difference that probably wouldn't even be noticeable though. If I upgrade, I'll upgrade everything to a 3570k most likely.

That's for the help though. I learned a lot at least, and wasn't doing it completely wrong.

At least you learned something! If you DO get a 3570k post here, I want to know what it's like overclocking biggrin.gif
