Calling Old School Overclockers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
See if any old school overclockers have some advice for this setup smile.gif

Q9650 running BF4 and COD:G Maxed at 70-100fps (1920x1080, 2xAA).

I know this setup is ancient, but it still manages ok in todays games.

BF3 & BF4: maxed out 1920x1080, 4XAA, 2XAA at 70-100fps,
COD: Ghosts: maxed out 1920x1080, 2xAA at 60 fps,
AC4: maxed out 1920x1080, 2xTXAA at 40fps.

See if anyone who's been around long enough, and remembers 775 oc'ing can help me with the occasional (once a month) lockup.

It's the lockup where the screen freezes and the sound loops in a loud droning sound.

Thanks if you used to know about 775 oc's back in the day and can give me a tip.

CPU: Q9650 @ 4.07Ghz
GPU: Asus CU II GTX 670 Top @ 1185
MEM: 8GB, DDR3 @ 1650
MB: Asus Striker II NSE


Multi: 9x

Mem DDR3 8GB: 1650 Mhz (9-9-9-24 1T P1&P2 Enabled)

vCore: 1.275 (Bios)
LLC: Enabled
PLL: 1.50
FSB/VTT: 1.30
DRAM: 1.80
NB: 1.38
SB: 1.50

thanks again!

As I recall getting an Q9650 up to 4.0ghz completely stable is pretty tricky. Does the CPU clear long runs of prime95 with thous settings? My guess would be that its simply a mater of voltages so either bump up the vcore a step or back of the FSB for an slightly lower OC.

Does this also happen if you run the GTX 670 at stock speeds?

Woah, LGA775's aren't that old, especially if yours is playing BF4 at over 70fps anyway thumb.gif

One of my earliest builds on the LGA775 platform using a core2duo use to lock up like that and loop a sound. The fault was either the PSU or the mobo, but since i was able to use the PSU in another system i built that didnt freeze up like that other one, it would have been the motherboard.

I have the same issue with my current lga 771 modded 780i sli. Sound loops annoyingly. I have noticed artifacts when bios booted at different bios settings. Ie sticking at ram testing sequence. This leads me to the "it must be the motherboard conclusion"

I've tested it with 2 other power supplies and its the same deal. Lockup @ 4.0ghz maybe once or twice a week.

Being the 780i sli is so expensive even used im possibly going to rma it and sell the rma and upgrade to lga 1156 on the cheap if I can find the right chip and board.

I'd bump fsb + NB + PLL all a notch
have a fan blowing on the sinks.
Yorkfield is a double Wolfdale..and Wolfdale's like high FSB voltage.

I would say either the memory controller voltage or the core voltage from my experience with a Q9400 and E8500 overclocking.
That or the RAM needs to have loser timings/more voltage.
