No reason to move past 1.4V on these.

Those temps where quite high didn't know why....

Until i opened my case and found some dust between my fan and grid tongue.gif

606

Cleaned it and installed my h60 in push pull now and idle temps:

399

So ye i guess little improvement, haha biggrin.gif

(Don't know why this one core has a 10°C difference in temps, damn that core redface.gif)

Dylan90, how hot do your cores get when running a Prime95 blend?

Hmm don't know at the moment with this current setup, i will test it tonight.

I will let you know tommorow smile.gif

Nice OC Dylan90!

Now that you got the temps down, that chip still has plenty of room to OC if you wanted to. 2thAche has a nice E0 OC in his sig as a reference.
If possible, could you post your BIOS settings? I am always looking for ways to push my Q9550 a bit farther. I still need to push 1.4v+ to hit 4.0. Not an ideal voltage for 24/7 unfortunately.

Gratz and have fun!

cheers.gif

Thank you for reminding me Dylan, I need to clean my H70 rad soon, lol.

looks like a nice chip that dude thumb.gif

i used to run mine on 1.16v@3.6ghz but i found that was where it needed massive vcore for the next 100mhz till i ran out of cooling just over 4.6ghz on 1.6v.

i think 4ghz would be easy with that chip but your mobo is going to run out of fsb soon as they aint the best board for silly high fsb.

Wow 4.6 Ghz! Nice, but that is allot of vcore is that chip still alive and well? tongue.gif

Ye i guess it's not that a nice board to overclock, if i knew this i would have never bought it anyway need to make the best of it.

Someone says here the max fsb is 467 so that is x8.5 3969.5 Mhz, close enough.

I have been running this clock for over a week and had no problems, but just last night it froze... doh.gif

Ran the test again today one these volts:

139

And 1.26 Vcore..

Temps just 5 min before it froze, ran it just over an hour.

441

The volts for NB and SB are quite high already, tought around 1.45 for NB and 1.52 SB max volts so i gues its the Vcore that needs more volt. redface.gif

The temps are fine anyway so it's not a big problem.

Anyone thinks otherwise please let me know smile.gif

Thanks.

You probably just need more VCore.

First thing I'd do is DECREASE your CPU multiple to 6x, then run up your FSB until you find it's limit. Then you'll know where your board stands.

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.

On

1.50 SB Volt
1.40 NB Volt.



On 8.5x 1810 (3846.25 Mhz)

I tried to increase my cpu volts to

1.34 Vcore
1.34 VTT
1.60PLL

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

Temps Bios:

MB 22C
NB 53C
SB 43C


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 Mhz

Yea then it's NB or memory, not your CPU/VCore. What is your memory at?

I'd feel OK with 1.45-ish on that NB. I think the "red" on those are 1.5V right? Bump it on step up at a time and see if it stabilizes. Keep the 6x CPU multiple just to be sure.

Just be sure it's getting direct air 'cause NForce NB gets hot as a mother.
