Any advice?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Been working on getting a truly stable long term overclock. I have it right where I want it at the moment, but it crashes on prime95. I can literally do ANYTHING ELSE without it crashing (minus folding). I have a validation and a screenshot, and i'll list all the other stats if need be, I just need some help getting this overclock stabalized.

EDIT : My processor voltage is set FAR above what is shown... I don't want to reveal that actual voltage, people might start yelling at me.

As I know, Prime95 is not the only one test and it is not always 100% reliable.

More experienced guys will say something more constructive I believe

I wish I could get some input, I really want to get this stabilized, without this heavy clock, my computers name totally wont work.

Okay had a gander maybe try dropping your FSB to say 238 and upping the multi to 21 and run Hyper Pi and check it on that prog 32m Priority high work out your vcore too

http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=211

Give it a go get back to me with your results wink.gif

The problem with that, the FSB needs to stay above 250 for my RAM to hit 1ghz, which is one of my goals. Although, I plan on upping the RAM to 1866, that starts 133mhz higher than 1600, i'll give it a whirl.

After some research;

Found this thread on OCN: AMD FX-4170 ZAMBEZI OVERCLOCKING

and this;

The power phase on the MoBo is only 4+1 (Biostar MoBo). What I have read on here, 8+2 is the best minimum power phase a MoBo needs to do some serious OC'ing. The higher the power phase the easier the OC because the power to the MoBo will be more stable and less stressed.

Also, if you do not share what the voltage to the CPU is, it will be difficult to help. If it is so high that you do not wish to share it, then maybe it is not ever going to be stable and it may kill your CPU.

What are your temps with the unmentioned vcore? I saw that you have the H60, so that is good.

In all honesty, I do not know if you will be able to achieve your desired 5ghz OC. I am no expert though, but I have done some fairly extensive reading on OC'ing and I have played with it myself. I could get a 4.0ghz OC on my 965BE, but it sucked up 1.6v and was around 64-68C. Too hot, too many volts, not worth killing my CPU over.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

The temps are not a concern, for the 15 minutes or so that it doesn't BSOD, it never hits 58 degrees, and the temp limit is 61. I think I just need a better board...

I think that a better board will be a good place to start, I am sure you will get more feed back, the thread is fairly new.

Those temps are great for that OC, but 15 minutes is not much.

Did you run Intel Burn Test?

Are you trying to make this a 24/7 stable OC?

And for the sake of fun, I am going to guess your vcore is around 1.63? Haha. wink.gif

Ive got a 975 be and the best I could get was 3.985 @ 1.44vcore and a Fx 4100 @ 4.8 1.4 vcore Spewin really cause I really didn't grasp what I was doing back then

Definitely investigate another m/board 990 fx ud3 wasn't a bad board for the price the bios update should make it a whole lot better thumb.gif I hope this helps smile.gif

The Vcore is set to 1.53, but the actual voltage never goes above 1.5. Also, yes, 24/7. and i'm about to run another burn test besides prime95. I just ate up hyperpi 32m no problem, never went over 50 degrees.
