FSB Overclock Help Please!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello and thanks up front to anyone who can help,

Before I begin, here is my system as listed in my SIG:

Intel QX6700 Quad
Zalman 9700LED CPU Cooler
Asus Striker Extreme Mobo
2x SLI MSI OverClocked 8800 GTS 640MB video cards
Twin Corsair Dominator 8500CFD rated at 1066MHz @ 2.2v.
2x RE2 WD 500GB HDD in RAID 0
Enermax Galaxy 1000W PSU.
MS Vista Ultimate

Here is where I need some help folks. First, I have bumped the CPU Multiplier to 12x from 10x giving me 3.2GHz running on the CPU. I have the Voltage on the CPU set to “Auto” on the mobo and this runs stable after running PRIME95 for several hours. ORTHOS on the other hand throws a “Expected E4 and received E5” message. This message from ORTHOS hinted to me the memory which I have running 1:1 at 1066MHz with the Mobo at 2.0V fixed (NOTE: On Auto, the memory voltage would read around 1.8). I tried uping the memory voltage and would get video artifacting from the ASUS board logo on boot up and then system freeze up. Only when I put the memory voltage back to 2.0 or 1.95 did the system come back to life, so I have left it at 2.0 and started with the FSB overclock.

The FSB runs 266MHz (Quad pumped) so I decided to start out slow. I bumped it to 270MHz (1080Mhz) and the ASUS logo and BOOTSTRAP started normal but when Windows Vista started to load I would get the BSOD showing a “memory dump”. Increasing the memory from 2.0 in small increments all the way to 2.250 still got me the BSOD at Vista startup. Oddly, when the voltage was at 2.175 Vista would get further into loading but still, I would get the BSOD memory dump error.

I should be able to bump up the FSB right folks? Could it be that increasing the FSB is throwing my overclocked 8800 video cards out of wack? Does bumping the FSB increase the clocking on the Video cards? If so, I should be able to lock the PCI-E while adjusting the FSB right? Still, I’m not sure this is the issue. I am hoping you all can help me on this.

Many thanks

Thanks for the Response Rich.

The only option I see for the Striker Extreme board for controlling the PCIE bus in the BIOS is under Extreme Tweaker->System Clock. Under System Clock are the folowing settings:
PCIEX16_1 = 100
PCIEX16_2 = 100
PCIEX16_3 = 100
SPP<->MCP REF CLOCK, MHz = AUTO
The PCIEX16 settings allow 100min-200max, there is no AUTO. Only the SPP<->MCP is set to AUTO.
Since this post, I have tried putting the CPU Multiplier at 8x, and 9x and get Check Sum error before Window Vista loads....Dude, I'm at a loss. Any help?

I would leave nothing on auto and set everything manually. What is your vcore set at? I have had my troubles with OCN in Vista myself and received the same error message and memory dump.

Killerhz, glad to hear the memory dump I'm not alone on.

My Vcore is manually set to 1.30v. For the life of me I just can't put the FSB over 1066MHz. Ideas?

There should be no reason the FSB could not be bumped 4 notches to 270. My thoughts are this may be a Vista issue. Maybe it's HDW monitoring??? I'm at a loss and can't seem to get answers from other forums as well.
