Help me with my BE965 Overclock, I can't run 3Dmark once I go over 3.8ghz

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My system
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965 - Oced to 3.8 ghz , CPU voltage at 1.45(Any lower and it crash during 3Dmark GPU physic test, it also crash if I use 3.9 ghz and 1.55v)
Air Cooler - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus

MB - ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3

Ram - 8G Running at 8-8-8-24 1600mhz 4
Voltage 1.64v

Slot 1 and 2
OCZ AMD Black Edition 4GB

Slot 3 and 4
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145263


GPU - MSI N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC - Going to upgrade to a new GPU, looking at the GTX 670 or HD7950) Oced through MSI Afterburner - GPU 910 mhz, Memory - 2100mhz

PSU - I believe it's a 650w Antec

OS - Window 7 Professional 64 bit

If I go over 3.9ghz, and run 3D mark, when ever the physic test appear, it will always BSOD, I tried to OC with Multiplier and FSB, but both can't go above 3.8ghz.

Multi-plier X19, Ram 8-8-8-24-2T 1600mhz, NB-2800, Ran 3Dmark 11 and PCmark 7

Tried this method too
3.75ghz cpu
Mutiplier X15, FSB 250, Ram - GOt it to run 2000mhz once, but then when ever I leave bio, it's black screen, so I toned it down to 1633 mhz, NB ,

For method two, I increaded Multi to 4.0ghz, increased voltage to 1.55, but still BSOD when running the physic part of 3Dmark 11.

You may just have a one of the bad processors from the pick.
Because i have a 960t unlocked to 6 cores@ 4065MHZ and it is at v1.43 Vcore so it seems odd that you can't break the 3.7 wall.
Also what cooler are you running?
Here Is what i can suggest to you:
1)try bumping your fsb voltage up a bit
2)try lowering you ht speeds as this was a problem with me
3)and if your board supports it then enable load line calibration as this will sometimes eliminate Vdroop with can make overclocking difficult.

Oh ya and try keeping your voltages under 1.5V as that is were it really starts to shorten the CPU's Life-span.

Hope this helps and keep trying biggrin.gifthumb.gif

nVidia chipset boards have been known not to overclock as well.

I'm using a coolermaster 212+

What should I set the FSB voltage to.

And I think I figure out the problem, by changing the ram timing,
It ran 3dmark 11 at 3.9ghz.
But as soon as I restart my PC, the bio says the overclocking failed.

If I try it at 4.0ghz
I get this BSOD

The system encountered an uncorrectable hardware error

124 points to a ram issue. I would try raising my cpu/nb voltage and see how that goes. If it still fails, try dropping the cpu/nb multi down one.

^ Not true.  Looking from the database, it's more likely that this is a CPU or CPU-NB error.

Not true eh? Should be more specific and say IMC next time I guess lol.
