Bulldozer chips lowest voltage to run is about 1.26 volts. It may even run lower at 1.24. They can actually run at that voltage until you get to the 3.8-4.2 voltage range. At that point the chip can need voltages anywhere from 1.26 to 1.4 to run stable. Just upping your vcore isn't going to cut it, your NB voltages should be upped along with the vcore as well. If your NB isn't getting the voltage the cpu needs, your vcore isn't going to be have the power it needs to draw available to it.

What's your load line calibration set to? If going for a 4.2+ OC you may want to set it from medium-high.

Just dug this thread up for you. Any Bulldozer OCer should take a look at it, it can help you out quite a bit. http://www.overclock.net/t/1140459/bulldozer-overclocking-guide-performance-scaling-charts-max-ocs-ln2-results-coming

And with that said, I could recommend using OCCT for testing. You need only a full hour test for what many consider a stable overclock. Much easier way to test.

It would help if you knew what LLC actually does. Same as to why you're changing what voltages and what not. You can't just ramp up voltage to your cpu and expect it to work when it comes to overclocking. You'll get a better and more stable overclock too if you up the bus speed not the multiplier. Not to mention it'll be a better OC than if you just used multipliers.

Read the guide, understand what does what for your computer and your overclock. You'll have a better idea to why your OC might not be working.

And finally, go into your profile and set up your rig. Then put it in your sig so that people can access your computer information without having to ask. makes it easier to get help.

i got a stable oc to 4.2ghz,i increased voltage 0.25 and nb voltage 0.25 and i put my ram to ddr3 1600mhz profile which bumped my ram voltage to 1.6.i found out my ram was unstable.i want to thank you guys xerosnake90 and mezmenir and alcal smile.gif
