Here we go again, 3600 X2 Brisbane OC

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Onwards and upwards!

I made a thread like this when I joined, but me being a total OC n00b and not understanding my CMOS made those who tried to help think everything was locked or something.

Ok so here is the current situation.

Today I found out that my XP Pro wasn't updated at all So with post-haste I went on the MS update site and got everything.
This comprimised my Clock Gen OCing and I was back at 1900MHz, so I thought I'd take this golden oppurtunity and make an attempt at OCing with CMOS.

After failing a couple of times with an error similar too; "Running in safe mode, please change CPU clock frequency." I changed my CPU voltage and it worked (yay!)
Clock Gen made my system freeze above 2500 MHz and I'm now at 2555 MHZ with more to go, I'm sure.
However my temps is not very good, HSF is running at 1600RPM which is half of that AMD said it should run at in their email (3200 RPM +/-10%)
I am still waiting for my new HSF and I now have 52 degrees Centigrade idle or up and only god knows what I have on load. (doesnt really dare to check at this point)

I am 90% sure this is the HSF I ordred, can you guys please tell me if you think that will do or what I need to be stable at around 3GHz?

And BTW, any idea why I can't go higher on my CPU voltage? (mobo I guess right?)

I got a BSOD a little while ago. driverirq_not_less etc... This is either RAM related or OC related, I think both. could it be that my mobo can't handle the FSB setting?
Help please

Or.. can my 400W psu cause this?

What is your FSB set to?

Also, either your temp sensor is bad, or you need to reseat your CPU. On stock cooling I was able to go to 1.425V with the same temps you have now.

And yes, that HSF will be fine, though I can't guarantee you 3 GHz.

Don't give up hope.

I beleive you were trying to link to the Arctic Freezer 64 Pro. That is a pretty good cooler. I have it on mine running @ 2.8 GHz (1.45v I believe) and idle is @ 34°C and load is 49°C, still playing with it some.

AS for the BSOD, I don't know enough to help with that. whenever mine is unstable it usualy just re boots or won't get past post. Have you upped your memory voltage any? That was one of my issues.

Agreed, try reseating the heatsink with a dab of TIM the size of an uncooked grain of white rice. You may need to feed the NB/SB a bit more voltage. Also, quick terminology note: CMOS simply means Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor, a way of arranging MOSFET's. What you mean is the BIOS, or Basic Input/Output Service (or System, though that is incorrect).

Not giving up hope

I am giving up hope on reaching the 3GHz barrier with this mobo though, cheap low end pos...

CPU FSB is now at 268,3MHz according to Everest.
Reseat my CPU? Sure about that? I don't feel like touching it
I tend to break what I touch

Yeah I upped my mem voltage to 1,8v. Tried to up it some more but wouldn't boot, also I got this error after the BSOD, the same one about "safe settings... turn down clock settings..." I did, 10MHz
And it worked.

Thanks, I'll be sure to whip those store clercks tomorrow and ask where my fan is... sure taking it's time...

**EDIT: I tried reseating it earlier, didn't help, I read on google about RAM timings can cause BSOD's like the one I got.. thoughts?

Someone told me that the BIOS is what's telling the CPU to do when it boots up, and the CMOS is where you can do all sorts of nifty stuff.. I dunno.. I'm no expert

***EDIT again: I forgot... 5AM... TIM? Thermal paste?

Just a FYI, I had a hard time getting the cooler installed. I ended up removing the fan from the HS and pulling out my PSU to install it, and had to move my memory over or it would hit the fan.

When I do reinstall it, I am just going to take the whole MoBo out and do it. I don't think I got a good paste contact (the stuff that came on the AC) with me wiggling it around so much.

Yhanks, if I have problems, I'll cry
It said "easy to insert"


I just figured out what NB/SB ment
No idea how to up voltage to them though.. or if I even have power to give... 400W *shrug..

Boy you've really screwed this thing up now....naw just kidding...but seriously your temps are WAAAAY too high, Idle temps at 52 is just insane. I hope that your temp monitoring program is reading temkps wrong. Check the download section for hardware monitor or SiSoft Sandra to get a 2nd opinion on temps.

LOL
Everything says that, Everest, Speedfan etc... not only are they high but also unstable, they can be at below 50 one second to shoot up to over 60 the next, without loading on the proc... Hopefully the new HSF will help, AMD said I should use my warranty and replace my current stock one.
