~OC'ing Results in BSoD ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm running the following system:

X2 4600+
2gigs corsair
A8N-SLI Dlx

I've overclocked from 2.41 to 2.77 using 11x252 with 1.3875 CPU Voltage and 1.45Vcore. It will boot to Windows but that's when problems start. Randomly I'll get a BSoD or the computer will just freez. Is that RAM related or what?

Thanks!

I get the same problem on my Celeron (Rig 2). It can be attributed to lack of a decent quantity of RAM, but i dont think that is your case. What kind of cooling are you using? Usually this happens when your chip overheats, and happening too many times can damage your CPU (not fun, its happened to me). You can always see if a higher voltage helps. See what happens.

This happens to me - lower the OC and your alright, its just that its unstable!

My RAM is CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel. And I have a Koolance Exos-2 liquid cooling system for my CPU. It's currently around 26C when overclocked.... but it still crashes. I'm worried about increasing volts as I'm already up from 1.3V to 1.38V. Can I go higher?


Jakg - I have liquid cooling and temps still around 26C when overclocked, is 2.41 -> 2.75 the best I can go with liquid cooling?

dont know - perhaps you could try with different multi's, fsb's and dividers.

Please fill out your ram, as well

More volts - more stability (when overclocking), but more heat, if you can afford it, do it!

1.38v is nothing. If you have to increase your voltage to 1.55+, that's when you start to have true heat issues. For an OC like that, try 1.4-1.5 on the vCore. Usually for OC'ing, most people keep it at the recommended highest, maybe a little lower, and they're fine.

Myself, I have my CPU at 11x245(almost 2695MHz) @ 1.55 vCore and it idles at around 35° and load around 40-45°. Aircooling of course, WC is being RMA'd.
