Cant seem to get E6600 Stable at 3.4GHz

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My computer runs fine at 3.4GHz, i can play game and do everything. I ran memtest and everything was perfect. But when i Run Orthos, I receive the ERROR and have no idea why. My temps aren't that bad.

What is yoru memory running at and what voltage do you have going to it.

Did you try raising your vcore a notch to see if that helped at all.
Also run memtest to see if your memory is erroring out. You gotta make sure that its the cpu that is causing the instability.

There could be alot of factors including not enough vmch or whatever that board has, system tmeps like the NB could be too high, ram timings could be too tight.

Its you memory configuration. I'm having the same problems with my board (the same as yours) right this second...

I'm Trying to get a stable OC with my DDR2-1066 Bllistix but its not going so well...

Try dropping the ram down to two matching sticks, and run it in "unlinked" mode, loosen the timings a little and up the voltage by .1v if you need to...

Try that and see what happens... Anyone think this is a bad idea? (second opinion??)
good enough

I was going to suggest that maybe you have to bump the vcore but your temps look pretty high..
What are your ram timings set at?

My RAM voltage is at 1.85 and running at 400mhz. I ran memtest last night with no problems. They are supposed to be running at 800

Looks like the ram voltages hasn't been touched sense you owned the board, am I correct?

Can we please see the Memory tab on cpu-Z

Go to the Memory tab to show the speed and timings. Not the SPD.

Something is definitely unstable. You just didnt encounter anything intensive to that point yet. It's definitely between CPU and RAM. Lower your FSB a little or increase the Vcore. Loosen timings or increase Vdimm.

Ok, sorry but my knowledge on OCing as of now is slim. In fact I just posted a thread on OCing my E6420.

Anyway my question is did you jump right into overclocking your Cpu and ram at the same time, or did you rule out cpu already?
