OCing SD3700+ - Have I maxed out?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I seem to have a problem getting my SD 3700+ past 2750mhz. At 11x Multi I can't seem to get past 250 FSB and at 10x Multi it starts acting up after about 265 FSB. This is with putting upwards of 1.5vcore, set at 1.525 in BIOS but read by CPU-z and MBM5 as 1.5. Am I missing something? I feel like this chip should be able to do more, but I could be very wrong I'm sure.

My HTT link is at 3x and my RAM is on a huge divider 1:2. My temps barely hit 40C when running Prime95.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you tried upping the voltage some more? At 40ºc full load you still have some headroom.

Either that, or loosen RAM timings and possibly up the RAM voltage a hair as well.

Even with the RAM running on a big divider like that? I thought the whole point of the dividers was so that you didn't have to change RAM settings? At the divider I had set, its running way below stock.

EDIT: Also, should I change my Chipset voltage at all? Stock is 1.5v but it can go to 1.8v, I have it set to 1.7v. Is there any downside to upping the voltage on the chipset?

I think he missed the part where you said you are running on the 1:2 divider.

At this point i would up the vCore and see if it'll go higher, you can leave the chipset voltage at 1.7v just to make sure it's not bottlenecking.

The KACAE's are known to like lower vcores . Have you tried LOWERING the vcore?

Mine did 2.75Ghz with 1.45Vcore, but it needed 1.65 to get up to 2.85Ghz. Some chips are golden and can get to 3Ghz and some can't.

I will try will stock (low) vcore and if that doesnt help then I'll bump it high (1.55-1.6) and see if that helps. I don't really want to risk going much higher than that and popping my chip.

How long have you waited before bumping up the speed? Sometimes chips have to be "burned in" to the newly OC settings. When I went from stock to 2.5ghz on my system, it crashed but I upped about a hundred mhz at a time for a couple of days at each setting and I gradually worked my way up.

I wouldn't go over 1.6V for a 24/7 OC.
