Workin w/ my FX-55!! - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
Nope, i'im not at DDR500 speds in the bios. I've checked that... and for some reason, i have been unable to get the multi down on my FX-55 to the 10X range... i'll try again tonight.

[edit] and once again... has anyone ever had experience with a bad board that will post and boot into windows, but at higher fsb, they'll become unstable..even when you change things(i.e. htt and multi)?
On my 4400, i was able to take the cpu multi down to like 6X and play w/ just the fsb there, but it was never stable above 240....now i can't even get it stable at that high.

Have you tried different BIOS versions. Sometimes the latest isn't the greatest.

check www.dfi-street.com for an bugs the board may have. I couldnt get stable for the life of me until I found out I need to put legacy usb mouse to disable and that cleared it all up. Also make sure your ram is in the correct slots, I ended up having to put mine in the orange slots vs the yellows where apparently BH5 is favored.

good suggestion.... cept for 1 thing... i didn't upgrade my bios when i first got the stuff... but i'll try it again anyway.

i'm up to two things to work on next time i have time:

1) change bios
2) multi down to 10 and work from there.

more suggestions are always appreciated.

I want to clear the air too. I noticed that the Egg has two different FX55's for sale. Both 939, one San Diego and one Clawhammer.

It is, in this case, most likely an issue with an out of date CPUZ, in terms of identifying the FX correctly. Before CPUZ was updated for 939 opterons, mine read as a 940 (just like your FX says now).

LDT/HTT multiplier shouldn't play a part in overclocking until you start raising your FSB(HTT) frequency. If you only raise the CPU multiplier, the HTT multi should remain at 5.

Good luck with the overclocking!!

i know about the ldt/htt multi.... but you usually want to keep the HTT buss down below 1000 mhz. That means once you move over 200 FSB, you should change the LDT/HTT mulit to 4X and once again when you move over 250, the multi should be changed to 3X. This keeps it more stable (from what i've heard)

Have you got the ram running on a divider? If so take it off and set the htt multi to 3 then up the fsb to 250

i'm at school, right now, but i can tell you that it doesn't work.... i'll try again tonight, but i can almost guarantee you it won't. I haven't been able to do anything near 250 with the FX.
[edit] no divider either, but i'll try again.
