phenom II x2 560 OC on 2 cores

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I seem to be stuck at 3.8ghz. Here is my cpuz

359


Specs

phenom 560 @ 3.8ghz (HAS quad core cooler. not sure from what cpu.. but its beefier than the stock cooler.)
8gb gskill ddr3 @ 533mhz
asus m4n75td
ocz 750W psu
ati 4350 (replacing with gtx 550 ti but doubt its holding the cpu clock speed back)


My temps tend to peak out around 50c at most. ave of about 46c.

Back when i was trying to go further, i was told that my raidmax 530W psu was holding me back (not sure if that was the case) I dont want to push the chip further (right now voltage is at 1.504V under full load in prime large FFTs) I cant seem to find any vdroop settings in my bios that actually change anything. when i idle my voltage is at 1.536.. so im getting a .03v drop. not sure how significant that is. This is the first chip ive "aggressively" overclocked. So i replaced the psu with the 750W unit.. mainy so i could support an sli setup in the future.. plan on getting the gtx 550 somewhat soon and maybe a second in the future.

i have only touched the multiplier as well. the ram is left at stock speeds and the timings go as follows 7 7 7 20 27.

Basically im curious if my current voltage *should* be enough to go further. I would like to get 4ghz stable for bragging rights really.. ive been fine with 3.8ghz. Only thing holding me back is the video card so its not like im pressed to cram more power out of the cpu.

edited.. made no sense lol



im now 3.8ghz stable (overnight blend and short fft)

vcore 1.44

mult 19 x 200fsb
dram 1066
cpu/nb 2800mhz
ht 2000mhz
timing 8 8 8 22

cpu/nb 1.4v
vdda 2.6v
ram 1.6v
ht 1.2v
nb 1.2v


not sure why i need so much voltage for this clock speed. during a blend test, i failed in under an hour (had bsod) with the vcore at 1.4375 (1.425 under load)

changed it to 1.44 under load and now it passes blend all night long.

do my voltages sound right?

Put you CPU voltage at 1.50v and have fun OCing it. Max CPU voltage is 1.55v.

knowing that my temps stay way down, is it safe to put cpu/nb voltage at 1.5 as well? or will that have no effect on cpu stability?
