To OC turn up your FSB a bit followed by voltage..... go slowly untill you hit 4... then test with prime

WHy would you use the FSB when you have the multi? Much easier to OC on the multi.

But i'm looking into water-cooling really soon besides core temp only gives me a idle temp of 29-33 and 40-48 @ load. (max is 61 if i remember correctly)

OP, turn auto voltage off immediately! You'll fry your chip!

Set it to "normal" or whatever they call it, and increase it a couple of bumps at a time. Use the Multi to OC, Since you dont know enough about OCIng yet to use the FSB, which also does the ram. If you only want 4ghz, turn off Auto volts, and the turbo feature, along with the power saving features. (Just for testing purposes) you can turn the power features on again later. So start with stock volts to see how high you can go, once you BSOD, up the voltages slightly till you pass atleast 6 hours of Prime 95

Thank you. Would you mind helping me with the voltages since i'm abit lost there..

450

Currently i set it at

Northbus? Thingy 2200
Other bus thingy.. 2200

15.5x multiplier
100 PCI
200 FSB

running @ 3100 stock

however i don't understand how the voltages work so i posted an image and would be really grateful for helpful answers. (:

Sorry for double post but i really need some help here!

After just 1 or 2 minutes my temps go up to 64 C in prime95 blend, is this normal?

I never went this high with auto voltages please help.

My idle temp is just 23 C

===============================================================

Update

I managed to boot @ 4 Ghz (4014 MHZ)

BUS (i keep forgetting the name)@ 2200
BUS (i keep forgetting the name)@ 2600
HTT/FSB @ 200
PCI @ 100
Multiplier @ 20x

1.275 VID / Voltage (Manual)

No error's what so ever and @ 55 C in prime95 (stock cooling)

Yay me (:

very normal with the Sabertooth board you told it how fast you want the cpu and it will bump the voltages its a really good board for a new comer in over clocking I love this board!!!!!!

I thought so to but it appear that is not what you want since the motherboard seems to give you way more then you need and you could end up with a fried chip(?) but it's a very nice board.

do you use the radar fuction?

I have 9 120mm fans in my sig and using the radar fuction it monitors teps and it has a fan pfofile I have it setup to bring online 4 fans one at a time as I hit 40c so at 55c all 9 fans are on. the Sabertooth mobo has built in temp sensors using the radar fuction turns them onso no mater what Im doing my rig never gets over 55c even when Im playing Skyrim I always know what my temps are by how many fans are on regardless of how many volts the board ramps up 2 but as a back up I set the max Vdrop i.e loadline calibration
post #19 of 22
biggrin.gif mass amounts of fans dont help as much as people think. Yes 3-5 will help circulate air in and out of the case, but anymore is really just a waste.
post #20 of 22
try this, 17x multiplier ,hit a 250 ht and it should auto voltage at 4250. iam using less voltage than stock,try that and lose some heat.
you need to watch the temp,amd overdrive or what ever tools you got with that mobo,watch the highest and not seperate core temps,there estimated.
have fun!!!
i have a 3800 using only 1.25 volts

you really need a after market cooler,you really need a water cooling close loop at least to clock,my temp are maxing with a zalman performa cooler.mad.gif
