Help Overclocking AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition - Page 4

I am currently at 1.337v and x18.5...I have made it this far!!! I am pumped....This is actually fun. I am currently running power95 at these setting and my temp is a constant 42 degrees c. I will let this run for at least 45 mins.....Let me know if this is acceptable.

I am having a lot better results after all of your guidance...I am up to 1.35v and stable after 2 hours at a multiplier of 18.5.

Very good choice with the 212. MaximumPC used that ALOT until just recently when they found one that FINALLY beat it by 1 or 2C if I remember correctly. But you can't beat the 212 in price/performance when it comes to air cooling imho.

What I've learned doing my first serious overclock with a BD is that the best way to proceed is to first start off with just the multiplier and V to begin with. Take the V up a couple notches with each Multi step you go up and then if it's stable try to go down a step at a time with the V till it's unstable and then you know the cutoff. Also keep an eye on what is happening to V under load. Typically you'll see V-droop meaning the V will decrease under load (for some reason on my MB I'm seeing V-erect lol the opposite of that).

Should I even touch the Hyper Transport at all? I am still not sure about ram speeds and timing and whether I should touch that either.

Set the HT link manually to as close to and over 2000 you can get it...or...set it to same as cpu/nb frequency
bump the ht link voltage to 1.26 for stability
Umm..If you read Gappo's guide..the 1st thing you do is get the RAM squared away.

how to lower ram timings: lower the 4 settings cL,trcd,trp,tras) 1 setting at a time.one notch at a time .lower it..reboot..see if post..lower 1 more..reboot..etc..until you don't POST..then go back to the last one that worked..this will put you in the ballpark

You can download CPU-Z and click to see what your RAM timings should be..or do this^

It's good to figure out the right timings for a couple of different frequencies..in case you have to adjust wink.gif

For the RAM, I would leave them where they are at for now. For the HT Link speed, it's best left nearest 2000 as possible. Since you're not using the HTT (yet) to tweak your final clock, it shouldn't change anyways.

So - as long as you can pass Prime95 for a good amount of time at that multiplier and voltage (at least an hour), try for your max clock at 1.35v. If 18.5 is as high as you can get stable, that is a good multiplier to run with, and you have options to run lower multipliers.

The next step is to see about your CPU/NB and then we'll combine both your CPU and CPU/NB clocks by tweaking the HTT for a final clock.

Alright so another update. I am stable at 3800 at the moment....My voltage is set at 1.4 and I have run power95 for 2 hours. My temps got up to 48 degrees...Should I try and push it further or leave it at this for now? Where do I go from here?

So now I have a new issue.... I am doing this for 2 games...One being Final Fantasy XIV and the second being Diablo 3....I was playing the closed beta for d3 after I did my stress test and I got BSOD while playing at the settings listed above this post.....What do I do now? Up the voltage more or?

I should also mention that both of those games are very cpu intensive...I upped the voltage again and played for awhile with no crash...I will keep testing it though.

How many BSOD's have you had recently? Too many will corrupt your OS/data and require a fresh install.

You can increase the voltage if need be. Try not to get too far above 1.45v though, as heat will increase. Make sure you're paying attention to your core and socket temperatures. Your core temps should be more important and won't be accurately reading until after 45c according to AMD. Those core temps shouldn't exceed 55c for 24/7 usage for most people so the 10c barrier can be a small one when overclocking.

Temps will go hand in hand with voltage, not so much the clock speed.
