[Solved] It takes too high voltage to get my overclocked unlocked 960T stable. - Page 2

post #11 of 28
what cpu cooler are you using? fill out the rig builder please.

try to find your stable 4GHz QUAD first at what vcore. try this . . .


- go back to bios and set everything to default
- disable the following - C1E, Turbo, HT, and Cool & Quiet. Not sure if you have Turbo V, if you do then disable that, too.
- set your vcore to 1.38v or 1.4v (try 1.38 first)
- raise your Multiplier to 20
- the fsb should be at 200
- save and exit.

hope it boots. monitor your temp using programs like hw monitor. WATCH the TEMPS.

if the above steps work, then bump the vcore a notch and unlock. say, if your final vcore is 1.4v for quad, then bump it up to 1.42, 1.43, etc but do not exceed 1.5v.

you have to read this guide to refine oc'ing . . .

Sorry, but I think I have mentioned my mobo and cooler and temps.
I think the temps are fine, and 3.9Ghz is the critical speed of my cpu at six core.

You are still within spec. I wouldn't worry yourself just because your CPU eats voltage. It's just a high leakage chip, just like mine. If you can cool it better, it will overclock high. My last CPU, a 1090T, was also that way, needing over 1.6V for 4GHZ, hot and leaky. It's new owner folds on it now at 4.1GHZ and 1.65V 24/7, so I reckon it's not degrading.

Saren I have my 960T @4.0 1.504v stable and NB 2800 1.35 n 1.3 no issues. Just don't touch HT keep it at 2000 or 1800.

your voltage is ok so don't worry. don't touch fsb just use the multiplier.

wow 1.65v, I am not sure if my silver arrow can do enough and vrm will going to explode in hex core cpu...
and I love your picture! thumb.gif

Thanks for your info smile.gif

it took my 1.55v for 4 ghz on a 555. What are your temps? That is the more important thing. You won't be running into any problems from high voltage itself. The only papers I've read were issues arose from voltage itself was in the kilovolt ranges with massive drops ~500 V. Your main issue is the temperature, that is what you should monitor (if your VRMs are able to take such high voltages...that's another issue).

I am using Silver Arrow and my max temp is 58C running linX under 23C amb temp
I think it's still too hot.
Idk if 8+2 vrm can take 1.6v for a hex core cpu...
