Help Overclocking AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition - Page 5

I just got back from a stag and doe and I was gone for 3 hours. The test was running the entire time and I got no BSOD with these settings. 1.43V and 3800MHz. Now where should I go from here? My temps stay around 45ish.

Now you need to increase your CPU/NB to 2600+. Your CPU/NB voltage should be around 1.15~1.2 stock, so minor bumps in the same increments (.025) will help stabilize it. For more specific testing, read this thread here.

Once you find what is stable on your CPU/NB, having hopes of hitting 2800Mhz, then you'll want to nudge your HTT clock up in small increments to see if you can get higher clocks little by little.

How do I know if the CPU/NB is stable? Also do I start at 1.15 and move up to 1.2 or ?

Also I have been reading on Ram timings and all of that...It seems like my ram has a slow turnaround because it is 9/9/9/24...and the DRAM frequency is 669MHz. How do I lower that? Should I lower that?

Sorry for all the questions.....So I upped the frequency to 1600 but the timings went to 11/11/11/40 or something like that.....How do I lower those numbers to 7/7/7/20 so that the ram turnaround is faster?

When I go into the bios there is so many different things to change.....TCL TRCD TRP TRAS TRTP TRC TWR TRRD......Which do I change? I have tried looking at guides and NOBODY as these in their guides.

Don't mess with the RAM timings or upping it until you're done with overclocking your CPU. You should have your RAM set to 800 right now for stability purposes (400MHz x 2 = 800)

I'm surprised you were even able to boot after setting the base frequency to 1600 (that makes it DDR3 3200).

The whole ram thing is very confusing....I just read a whole guide that said to bump up my ram once I had a stable clock speed. I already found a stable clock speed as well as a stable NB configuration. Ram is now confusing the **** out of me.

You're better off leaving RAM at stock and not overclocking it as you're likely never going to do HWBot or benching contests. The real world benefits won't be noticeable in any of the daily applications you use, most likely.

The one thing you might want to fool around with on your RAM is timings (which is technically overclocking as well). Lowering from CL 9 to 7 can 'feel' much snappier when working around your OS and 2T to 1T may or may not be noticeable as well.

On this board, when you select your DRAM speed, it selects the doubled data rate, not the base rate. So 1600 would be correct.

Gotcha....I was about to say...holy crap he's got it up high tongue.gif
