X2 5600+ Need a little help from you OC gurus

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Alright, I've just completed my new system (in sig) and everything has come together great. I just ran my computer for 3 or 4 days to break it in. Today I have been attempting to overclock my rig. So far I've gotten it up to 3.08ghz with no errors in Orthos (running 10 minutes). However, as soon as I bump up to 3.1ghz and run Orthos, it fails after 3 minutes.

I'm running stock vcore to my cpu, and 2.2v to my ram at 5-5-5-12. My cpu temp is around 50* at max load during Orthos.

Now I understand that the X2 cpus don't OC much past 3.2ghz, as that is my target. Any suggestions as to what might be limiting my rig?

Here's the cpuz of where I'm at.

Bump up that vcore! Give it a little juice and you might get stable.

up the V-core a bit and see if that helps, and set your HT to x3 for a little extra stability

you should invest in some aftermarket cooling

Just bump it up .05v or something. The max varies from one chip to another.
