Hey guys, I have a question.

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
My question is as follows, I have my AMD Phenom II x4 960T running smooth at 4ghz, But once I up it to lets say 4.2 it goes crazy, Like BSODS, Not getting into Windows and so on, What should I do, I just increased the Multiplier im pretty sure I did the OC the wrong way seeing as I just did it by the Multiplier. I have no heat problems I idle at like 20c and underload hit like 34c at the highest.

I'm all for getting the max safe overclock, but do you really believe you are missing out by not getting this last 200 mhz? OC the northbridge and call it a day man! What voltage are you at with 4 ghz?

your temps are reading wrong. no way 1.5v with a 212 evo is 34* underload.
have you stress tested yet ? im betting not...

If it is not stable you usually need to up the voltage. But I had previously owned a phenom 2 965BE with a hyper212+ @ 3.9ghz. My temps were in the 50-55 c range under prime 95 something about your temps seem too cool for that overclock.

Double check your temps while stress testing, as I have doubts that they are at 34c.

Your cooling numbers do seem a bit out of place.

But, do you have any cooling on your VRM's? That board is rated 4+1 phases, pushing 1.5v through it I would think would make it throttle down as safety.

This article is very useful for understanding the importance of good reliable VRM chips.

Well obvs you're going to need to add voltage for stability - which I wouldn't recommend on that motherboard due to the low quality VRM setup.

xd_1771, you seem to have a sixth sense about finding any thread relating to VRM's MOSFETS etc.


How do you do it? ( Don't bother answering it, somethings are better left un-answered)

his motherboard is ****... wouldnt it be better to have a working system instead of one that died when he unlocked his processor?
