Yep, he'd be a legend even in Intel's eyes. tongue.gif

Ganja can you tell me what to do next...I am lost....Do I start to play with the HT now? What should I do with that? I have the NB at 2600 and I got a blue screen when I tried to go higher...Should I up the voltage with that?

Ive ran a ton of mem tests on my ram and I got 0 errors so I am assuming my ram is good. Plus you said to leave it be for the most part.

My temps stay at 50 max after like 7 hours of gaming on max settings in FFXIV.

Any other suggestions for me ?

When you tweak the HTT (base clock) you're effectively overclocking everything else attached to the system, so to speak (except the PCI-E lanes). So let me give you an example:

If your multiplier was 19x200, that equals 3.8Ghz, right? (3800.~ Mhz)

The same can be done by doing this:

16x237=3.8Ghz (3808.~Mhz)

Does that make sense? So by bumping the HTT in small increments of 5-7 or 5-8Mhz at a time, you can get bumps in speed in ~50Mhz increments until you find the 'sweet spot'.

But remember, increasing your HTT will also increase your DRAM frequency, your CPU/NB frequency, and your HT Link frequency as well as your core clock. So at some point you'll have to adjust the multipliers on those if you clock the HTT too high and send something out of whack (usually DRAM / HT Link frequencies). thumb.gif

So essentially it is just a way of getting a bit more out of the cpu? Or is this necessary?

Not necessary at all. But a lot of people prefer to use HTT+Multi to get an overclock, because by increasing the HTT the overall system become more responsive (due to most things being tied to it).

Understood.....Now I just have to find it in the bios haha. I cannot see where it is at all...I think I upped the FSB speed instead of the HTT.... Where do I find the HTT in the bios? I think I am confused with the HT Link and the bus speed....The bus speed is 200...I can move that up and down by a few MHz but I cannot move the HT Link by less than 200MHz I believe. I have it set to 2200 atm. My speed is still the same though. Let me know if I am way off here.

Also my board does not allow me to go an higher than 2200...That seems to be the cap.

I just ran prime95 for an hour and i got this error FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.494140625, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file. What does that mean and what do I do to correct it?

FSB and HTT are one and the same as you incress it you can can incress your HT but don't keep HT as close to 2000 as you can and try to get you HTT or FSB however you want to call it as close to 3000 but know this as you go up on the HTT you will reach a point where you will need to bump up your CPU/NB voltage . The cpu/nb voltage is diffrent then your nb voltage 2 diffrent things. Don't go over 1.4 on CPU/NB voltage and 1.2 on your NB voltage. a good gauge for CPU/NB voltage is to have it .5 lower then your CPU voltage i.e CPU is at 1.4 CPU/NB would be 1.35

Now is the time to fill out your system specs. You will want to maximize your cooling. You should have a 2nd fan installed on your Hyper 212 for better cooling, which will allow a higher stable overclock. You also want air blowing over the motherboard chipset through a side-panel fan. When you get your CPU speed set, then go to your CPU/NB (commonly referred to as the IMC or internal memory controller). You want it as high as possible without requiring too much voltage. It will increase your CPU temps since it is located inside the CPU. Typically AMD's like around 2800MHz without much voltage, usually taking around 1.2-1.35v at that speed. With optimal cooling you should have no problems running that 965 at 4.1-4.2Ghz and the CPU/NB around 2800MHz,unless you happen to have a C2 revision of that chip instead of the better C3 rev. Leave the HTT and RAM speeds at stock until you get the CPU and CPU/NB set.

I still do not get it.....Here is what happens. When I go into the bios There is the FSB which atm reads 200.....Then the HT reads atm 2000.....but that is because I changed it to 2000.....When I go in normally it is on auto.....What values do I change at this point? Do I just start to bump the 200 up by 2-4 MHz? Do I leave the HT on Auto? Like I cannot seem to get an answer that makes sense.

I cannot put the HT higher than 2200. That is the max it will let me go. Also when I put it on 2200 it gave me an error in power95. I turned it down to 2000 and I get no errors. Should I up the voltage on the HT?

I do have the C3 version but for some reason I cannot go up to 2800 like you both are suggesting.....
