I just cant get past 4.4ghz

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I can not figure out why. I can run at 4.4 and run prime for easliy over an hour stable, but when i bump it to 4.5 the bottom falls out (boots in fine but instantly fails prime)
You can see my setting, voltage is actually regulated down for some reason at load im at 1.46 voltage

Is the voltage of something else causing me to fail? such as the nb? I brought nb and ht multipliers back down to keep them at or under stock freq. i dunno.

4.5-6 Is the median stable OC for those chips.
Have a look here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1214380/amd-fx-stable-voltages-frequencies-thread/0_20

If youve set the Vcore higher in the BIOS but its showing lower in CPUZ, have you messed around with ACC? If its powering down the voltage a little bit then that might be why youre not getting the necessary voltage. I dont think youll get a whole lot more out of that proc on air as 4.5 seems to be about the average with these things on air but tinkering with ACC a little might get you that extra MHz.

I am not on air, I am using an H60. The voltage shows like .5 lower in CPUZ until I start stressing then it jumps to voltage that was set in the BIOS. It never throttles down during a stress test in the clock or the voltage. As you can see in the image above. it is showing 1.408 for voltage but when I stress it jumps to 1.45 and doesnt fall until I stop test.

these processors are unlocked. why have you set your bus to 240?
up your multiplier to 22.5 and set voltage to 1.4-1.43.
what mobo are you using? how stable is it at 4.4?

^^ good catch.

Try using multiplier only. My experience with AMD procs is that they overclock much better with multi overclocks as opposed to FSB bumps.

Realistically, there are many air coolers that will outperform the H60. Its really just a really quiet alternative cooler.

Will attemp 4.5 on just multiplier and see what happens. Right now I can fully pass a set of 10 intel burn test.

Ok, so I tried this again. I set the FSB back to 200 and bumped the muliplier up. I tried a couple of times, and finally I set the voltage to 1.46 and I made it all the way throught 10 passes of Intel Burn Test on standard setting.
Ignore the voltage rating in CPUZ its wrong. Just reference the MAX colum in HWmonitor.

BTW are those temps ok?
I have been told that the TMPIN2 rating was just the socket temp.

I know I was asked before so here is my hardware
GA-970A-UD3
H60
4x2gb XMS3 Memory
Corsair 650w PSU
HD6770
3x60gb ocz agility 3 (raid 0)
376

Well done! Glad it worked. Those temps are ok but Id consider them pretty close to as high as Id like to go. I prefer low to mid 50's as my max. Dont like going any higher than that. Im kinda surprised that a H100 doesnt get cooler than that really but theyre still ok. Youre not going to be running IBT very much so I would be fine with them.

Whats your NB voltage? You can try turning this down a little too. It can make a BIG difference in your temps.
