I tried what you said i only dropped the multiplier to 6x on 1810 fsb and my screen stil froze after 3 hours and 20 mins.
My cpu was even underclocked to 2715 Mhz.
1.50 SB Volt
1.40 NB Volt.
On 8.5x 1810 (3846.25 Mhz)
I tried to increase my cpu volts to
And it didnt help it.
So i guess it is the nb/sb volt after all?
My NB gets only yellow at 1.70 Volt and SB on 1.65 Volt in bios.
(Some kind of safety from the motherboard:Voltiminder LED
Friendly reminder on the intentional madness
In the pursuit of extreme performance, overvoltage adjustment is critical but risky. Acting as the "red zone" of a tachometer, the Voltiminder LED displays the voltage status for CPU, NB, SB, and Memory in a intuitive color-coded fashion. The voltiminder LED allows quick voltage monitoring for overclockers.)
So if i cant get it stable that will be the max volts or is it to high?
Currently running on
1.42 NB Volt
1.50 SB Volt
The max FSB i could get was 1870 and running it now, so going to prime it.
And when i get it stable hopefully i wil just increase the multiplier to 8.5 and ad more Vcore.
So the max overclock for my cpu possible on this board is 3.973 MhzEdited by Dylan90 - 3/6/12 at 10:32am
