AMD 965 BE Overclocking help please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
HI everyone,
So i recently just finished my first Gaming build ever. it came out good so far. but i feel i could use some improvements in certain areas.
Please feel free to check out my rig stats and tell me what you feel i should add. I will be adding photos of my rig and parts as soon i get home from work.

i am thinking of add a custom water cooling set up by XSPC for my CPU and GPU and making a custom rad box for cold air intake via a a/c unit or a water chiller depending on how my budget is.





for all who cant see my specs here they are so far

so i finally got a stable 3.9mhz running on my cpu with load temps at 34-38C i actually wanna push it further to maybe 4.2 to 4.6 right now

my core speed is 3914.26
multiplier is 19
bus speed 206.03
ht link 2060.03
and voltage is 1.488

if anyone knows how to push it further please feel free to give me some ideas.

also cooling will not be a probably as i am currently working on a radical idea.
so here it is im taking a water cooler (like the ones you take to the pool or beach) a big 25 gallon one that can hold triple 120mm rads standing up. i can fit a total of about 6 or 7 of them in there. alll with no fans on them. at the top of the cooler with be a 4.2 in whole cut out of the top which will hold a aluminum dryer vent whole that is connected to my 9000btu portable air conditioner. seeing how the cooler is insulated the cold air should stay inside of the cooler therefore keeping the rads ice cold out the sides will be my water tubing which will run to my gpu and cpu blocks. only problem i can is i will probably need an extra pump to push all that fluid thru all the rads and up to the blocks. again feel free to let me know what you guys think.

i am happy with it for now. but i feel i can get more with it. i want to hit a stable clock with load temps under 40-45c. im thinking about something of the sort for my next clock attempt.

4200 core speed
multiplier is 20
bus speed 210.0
ht link 2100.00
and voltage is 1.5

or

4300 core speed
multiplier is 20
bus speed 215.0
ht link 2150.00
and voltage is 1.5 will have to check voltages

or

4392 core speed
multiplier is 18
bus speed 244.0
ht link 2440.00
and voltage is 1.5 will have to check voltages

i just finished OCing my gtx 680 4gbs to
132 power
+160 mhz
+500 memory and seems to be running stable after 2 hours of furmark and heaven and running crysis 3 non stop

So I finally was able to hit the infamous 4.2mhz mark well 4194.20 but close enough

Specs were
Core speed 4194.20
Mulitplier 18
Bus speed 233
Ht link 2330.16 and volt at 1.520

During intel burn test temps never went about 47c

I still have the same CPU as you, but using custom w/c loop, and was able to OC my 965 to 4.35 GHz. I am using a Crosshair V Formula mobo.. prolly could take her a tad higher with some tweaking here and there. I'll post up my setting later on. Check out rig specs for my w/c options I went with. IMO, I'd def go with a custom loop keeping those temps down..

Im actually working on a extreme watercooling loop soon with a fanless very low temp solution with temps staying below 30c at full loads.it will have 6 360mm rads again fanless and custom rad box I will be taking pictures of the setup when I start it next month. As for your clocks how the hell did you hit 4.35mhz it took me two weeks of tweaking just to get 4.2 stable enough. My goal is 4.3 4.4mhz. Also im stilll new to the whole oveclocking seens still learning
