OCing old rig - but I got stuck can you help me? pls

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hy everyone, I am reaaaaaly new to OC. I have this rig and I am studing as much as I can before posting anything, I prefer to understand then just ask for what to do and I also don't like to disturb people unecessary, but I got stuck at this point and I don't find any clue on how to proceed, which way should I study soo I am asking for help.

Before I continue with the problem let me show you my rig:
Asus Striker II Extreme
Intel E8600 @ 4Ghz
2x Gskill RipJaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
2x WD Velociraptor
GPU MSI Radeon R9-280
PSU CoolerMaster UCP 1100W
CPU Cooler Xigmatek HDT-S1283 with Artic Silver 5

OBS: For the record, in the old days (2009) it used to have a 3 SLI Nvidia GTX260 and 4x Corsair XMS3 2gb. But then 1 card fried for no understandable reason (no OC), another started to overheat on idle so I uninstalled and I had left just one of the 3. One of the Corsair memory stick got faulty and I sticked with only 3 then. Recently a friend of mine got a new computer and he gave me his GPU Radeo and 2 mem stick (check above, for exact model).

UNTIL NOW: I setup the multiplier to 10x and checked for stability and overheating, passed both. Then I gradually raised the FSB to 1600, I got some instability problems (Prime95 errors) but no overheating at all, then I raised the Vcore to 1,35v and got it stable (Prime95 overnight) however, CPUID (I mean CPU-Z) tells me the Vcore is at 1,392v (***!).

THE PROBLEM:
I am tring to reach 4.5ghz by raising the FSB to 1800. I saw a lot people reaching this with FSB 1800 but I can't.
If I set FSB to anything above 1600, be it 1601 or 1700 or 1800, anything at all the PC wont POST, it start a 6 seconds continuous beep, then stop for some seconds, black screen and repeat the 6 seconds continuous beep. I can only turn off then, then PC POST only at BIOS screen with a message it failed to post last time, if I change the FSB back to 1600 it is everything ok, but if I insist raising the number the process repeat itself. HOOO my FSB is UNLINKED and memory FSB is at 1600.

Where should I go from now?

Thanks for all the help in advance!

No, you need much much much better cooling than that to reach 4.5 GHz. You also need a much better motherboard. You would need a high-end liquid cooling system to start with. That little air cooler isn't going to do it. You'd be lucky to reach 4.33 GHz (a solid 1.0 GHz overclock), especially with an nForce motherboard.

 

CPUID is the name of the developer. Do you mean CPU-Z?

 

Getting back to your cooler, do you remember whether you applied the thermal compound properly? I'm talking about making sure the spaces in between the heatpipes were filled, like this:

 

http://archive.benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=150&Itemid=62&limit=1&limitstart=5

 

If you didn't fill these spaces, then your cooler's performance will be quite bad.

Ok, answering our your point.
1-I can't get a better cooler, I have no money ATM, if I had any I would upgrade my motherboard and CPU specially because I have better memory sticks that my mobo can't fully use it. HOWEVER by what I read even for a 2009 air cooler mine model have great scores. I am not saying it is better then more modern stuff, but for the class of CPU and mobo I have. I also saw some people reach 4.5 on air on 24/7 systems and that is why I am aiming for 4.5 because I saw other people doing it with same CPU and on air, just diferent mobo.

Also, actual OC with 4ghz on air is giving me no more then 45c on Prime95 and 35 on Farcry3 game (it is just the game I like to play, no other fancy explanation). So you maybe right but with this number it seems reasonable that I can reach 4.5 on air 24/7.

2-Better mobo: again, no money here, same explanation as above.

3-Yes sorry CPUID=I mean CPU-Z

4-I applied a square around the perimeter considering some space for the paste to strench around and an X inside. Before attaching the cooler to the CPU I placed tapes just around the CPU to no let any surplus of paste to go over the mobo circuit. It seems to work ok.

Now back to the problem, what are my options to get over FSB 1600 with a POST pass?

Right, 4.5 GHz was achieved with a different motherboard. You'd need to use something that's as good as or better than the EP45-UD3P. You're not going to do it with an nForce board. Even then, you have to remember that your bound to your luck of the draw in the silicon lottery. You're not guaranteed the ability to get 4.5 GHz with that CPU on any motherboard no matter how good the motherboard is just because some others have been able to do it.

 

When you say 45 degrees in Prime95, is that with Small FFTs, Blend, or Large FFTs? Small FFTs is the test to use. The others aren't worth much for Core2. 45 degrees sounds like Blend to me.

 

What revision does CPU-Z say you have? C0 or E0? The C0s suck at overclocking while the E0s are fairly good.

CPU-Z says revision E0

I understand your point but you know, one need to be persistent to achieve high grounds. I bet those on 4.5 or even higher didn't made it if they gave up on the 1st stuck they found themselves into. Do you agree?

I don't really remember which one gave me this temperature, but I runned both and I only took notice for the higher. I don't do blend because I read somewhere blend is more for memory and if one wants to stress memory then should go for MemTest.

I will re-run this night on small FFT just to make sure, but I am pretty sure thats the temperatures I am talking about. By the way this is C nor F.

In all the years I have been on this forum, I don't remember anyone achieving 4.5 GHz with an nForce motherboard. Can you recall which motherboards people had who achieved 4.5 GHz?

Aw ok. I have a feeling it might be very good Intel P45 motherboards and maybe an X48 motherboard.

Well when I bought the Asus Striker Extreme II I heard it was F.... great for OC accompanied by the E8600
By the way to be honest, I finjished the Prime 95 afte 4h and 20m, no errors but yes it gave me top 59 but average over 50. Strangelly the other core didn't even being 100% stressed didn't got over 50.
Why I can't go higher with my mobo? what is the limitation? thanks

4 hours and 20 minutes might not be a complete test. It can take 6-7 hours at the default of 3 minutes per FFT to complete all of the FFTs.

 

Anyway, I think the chipset is the limitation. Sure, the 790i was good, but I remember good P45 boards like the Gigabyte EP45-UD3P being much better.

 

Was that Blend?
