System Crash, Can't Figure Out Why, maybe OS? HELP! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna run Orthos again, with Clockgen.

I'll probably hold off on the RAM removal, cause I really don't think that is the problem, but if all else fails, I'll know I was wrong

Any other comments?


EDIT

Maybe not, after reading the abovementioned post. Ok, I'll just resort to BIOS then, That would explain the crashing when I raised it to 2250 with 1.6870 vcore. Going to try again, will post in about 5 minutes, stay with me here.

OK. Running from BIOS 2.250 speed, ram about 600, and vcore 1.285.
Running Orthos now... see if I freeze up.

How long should I run Orthos until I know I can go higher?

It should run for at least an hour.......
If it stays running...bump the speed a notch and rerun it. Finding a stable overclock IS NOT a 5 min deal. It can take days...even weeks of testing to find it.

I see... ok, so keep orthos on for at least an hour? And when you say stable, I should be looking for safe temperatures and (obviosly) crashes?

EDIT: I'm getting low temps, like Tcase 43c and Tjunction 54c. Can I cheat up to like 2.5? Or how do I know where to start? I have an OK heatsink, the Scythe Scasm. With these temps, seems like I could start at a larger OC.

What did you guys start at, and what increments did you go up by?

At stock vcore you should be able to get a 3-500mhz OC without to much trouble. If you want to do it right....set your ram at 1:1 ratio with loose timings first.
Then leaving vcore at stock raise the FSB 10mhz at a time and run orthos for an hr each time. When it fails raise the vcore a notch.
Rinse and repeat as needed.....

Is the stock vcore in the manual or is it the "auto" on the mobo?
