Good first overclock?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Cpu
http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...o=6988&cat=500
Ram
http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...o=6987&cat=500

I just wanted to make sure that freq is ok on the ram(504 mhz), and that the voltage is ok on the cpu and on the ram. 1.4~(set to auto) and 2.5v on the ram.

EDIT*
Also, should i test the settings in orthos for 12-24 hours for stability of the ram?

you can go much further with the CPU.
thermaltake WCsystems arent known for their quality (which is bad) but it should get you way past 3GHz

you need to increase Vcore by a slight amount. do so steb by step until orhtos runs for about 15 minutes, then increase FSB again. repeat these 2 things untill you reach a Load temperature of 55C.

you mean in vcore of my cpu? it is at 1.4 already at 3.0...it should be able to handle that... And my loads wont get to 55 i dont think...not unless i go to like 4.0 ghz... right now my loads are at 38c

increaseing volts does more to your temps than increasing FSB. you're at 55 faster than you think.
anyway, i need 1.45v for 3.36. try 1.45 and then run orthos. if its still not stable, check back here.

i raised the vcore to 1.45v and the process still stopps at the first irritation. I think it might be my memory.
How can you set the t2 function on this motherboard, and the divider?

if you think its the memory, set it as slow as possible. it should go way over 1000Mhz in most cases at 5-5-5-15, but just to make sure, keep it at the minimum speed with 5-5-5-15 timings.
thats what i'd normally say.
but since your FSB is way below 400, i recommend setting your divider at 1:1, this means your memory will run somewhere around 667Mhz, well below stock thus excluding it from the list of possible limitations.

the problem is i cant find my divider in my bios. On my other 2 motherboard it was simple. On this motherboard i just cant seem to find it.

on your board its probably just the Dram frequency. set it to 667, or the option closest to that.
