4.0 GHz at all costs, please! (PII X4 980 BE) - Page 8

post #71 of 87
o_O

I keep forgetting how lucky i got with my 965.. It would do 4.25 stable at 1.46v

I lost my validation link for that though frown.gif

I think he just doesn't realize to just hit the multi on auto first....
I have screamed that 4 or 5 times now.
then after the initial testing you adjust voltage..

just let him blow his shiit up if he doesn't want to listen.

Now you're just getting jaded and apathetic towards me. The least you could do is explain why idling my CPU at 1.56v (which it is now) at 4.0 doesn't agree with you. It's another three hours that I'm not using this machine if I have to start over. I don't appreciate condescension and lack of transparency, so make it thorough.

Load Vdroop brings the Vcore down to 1.512. What exactly is wrong with that?

voltages more than 1.55 are not recommended for daily use. this is amd's recommendation.
some overclockers have recommended less than 1.5v for daily use to avoid killing your processor.
if you've looked at the phenom 2 clubs we've linked you'll notice that no one needs 1.6v to hit 4ghz.
under load you want 1.46-1.52v, at idle you want 1.46-1.52v.
you've got decent cooling so you might be able to handle a daily 1.5v but really i don't think you need 1.6v for 4.0ghz.

when testing, don't have anything but the essential programs open.
when trying overclocks try one setting at a time, not ht and nb and cpu and ram all at the same time as you won't know what is causing the error.

Yes. I've read that dozens of times already. But are those voltages BIOS tweaker voltage settings or voltages at burn-in load?

load.
at load. you don't want to go over 1.55v which is amd's recommendation. if the bios says something and hwmonitor another, you may need to reset your cmos or change your bios.

it really should be as simple as everything stock, change the cpu multiplier boot into windows and test.
if you're not stable bump up the cpu voltage one interval until you find a setting that works.

try using intel burn test.
without pidgin or anyother unnecessary programs open.

Pidgin will never be on now. I already learned my lesson on that the first time. Why go for IntelBurnTest instead of LinX? Don't they both use Linpack?

JUST THE MULTIPLIERS ON AUTO LLC THIS TIME. VOLTAGES ARE FROM MY BIOS SETTINGS UNLESS I STATE OTHERWISE (HWMonitor).

3.8 GHz got me a LinX error on the first run at 1.49v.
3.8 GHz got me a LinX error on the second run at 1.51v.
3.8 GHz worked for my five runs at 1.53v. HWMonitor reads idle Vcore between 1.5v and 1.512v. HWMonitor also says LLC took my Vcore down to 1.452v minimum at full load.

3.9 GHz got me a BSOD on LinX's second run at 1.53v.
3.9 GHz got me a LinX error on the first run at 1.55v.
3.9 GHz worked for my five runs at 1.57v. HWMonitor reads idle Vcore between 1.536v and 1.548v. HWMonitor also says LLC took my Vcore down to 1.488v minimum at full load.

Comments? Questions? I'm about to go for 4.0 again and I don't appreciate being left out in the cold here.

my apologies...
it seems you have a high voltage chip and to be honest it's the highest I have ever seen.

It's all good. I'm not sure if this is true, but I thought I read in a few places that high voltage chips are okay if you can water cool them. I do have the H100 with its four fans right now. Is it safe to try for the 4.0 going higher with the voltage again?

You got a dud it seems. Bummer. I ran 1.55v throught my 1090t for over a year with no degradation. I say MOAR VOLTZ. thumb.gif Or save up for a new board. If the chip did it on a different board, it kinda stands to reason that your board sucks. redface.gif
