So i think i'm done

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
1 year later about a million POST beeps and about 30 bios battery pulls later i've hit the cap i think. My ferrari enzo on a honda civic budget. If i move one way i lose benchmark scores if i go the other way my day to day use gets BSOD !!! You get what you pay for i guess right? Think i can do better? Need some more info on a part?

Voltage seems pretty high for this kind of overclock. You should be able to achieve these settings with a much lower voltage. Have you tried lowering it?

I think part of your stability problems stem from your high HT link frequency. You want to stay around 2,000mhz for HT link and NB clock is good for like 3,000mhz.

lower your voltage to 1.45-1.46 youre way too high for a 400mhz overclock if youre stable at those voltages, start taking it down in .010 increments, the lower the better. Ive done a 400mhz overclock on my quad and didnt even need to raise the voltage. turn down your northbridge by 200 mhz as well. since your max temps are above 50 that is also a sign. your cores are too hot.

Dropped the volts NB won't come over 2400 for some reason even. tried 1.24 volts up to 1.32 ... doesn't post

ran Prime for 1/2hr and let BOINC run for a 1/2 hr and my temps reached this
585

You're pushing the voltage too far on VRMs that are not cooled.

the NB and ram sticks have passive heat spreaders and i do have 2 120MM fans blowing ontop and in from the side....

ok well your cores are much cooler now. knock your multiplier down one notch to bring it to 3.8 ghz and lower voltage to 1.42. if you can get under 50c at max load thats perfect.

You need a better motherboard:

375

For DDR3 memory yours is performing slower than my DDR2. Granted my NB is 600mhz higher (does make a difference), and my processor speed is 800mhz higher (doesn't make a difference for that benchmark), it still should be better than mine.

VRM cooling would be a start. More efficient power, the less it takes.

Not honestly sure why it won't work with a NB over 2400, it should do 2600 with very, very little voltage.

Yea your ram speed is clocking 400MHZ more and your timings are lower but why do i have less latency? I can flip the speeds up but i'm keeping everything cool with low voltage.. But my NB is a pain.. I've heard if the HT and NB are in lock step some systems are happy. I'll just have to cut my board speaker so i don't keep hearing post beeps
