Overclock Vista problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm having a problem overclocking my cpu in vista. I can't seem to overclock it past 3.0 Ghz without a corruption error from vista. it posts and works fine at 3Ghz but anything past it it doesn't want to load vista. it will post then begin what should be loading vista into ram and gives me a error message saying that winload.exe is corrupted and that i should do a windows repair. if i then bring it down to 3 ghz, it boots like nothing ever happened
Any help would be appreciated1

Interesting. I get occasional BSOD's when Vista is loading, then it restarts and i say start normally and everything works fine. Maybe this is just another quirk in Vista.

it could be the max of your cpu, have you tried upping the vcore or loosen your ram timings. It could be your ram.

i think the voltage being at 1.2 it due to power throttling because if i run orthos it jumps up to 1.3 in cpu-z

Where you stable in XP at these clocks? Are you sure it is a Vista problem and not a general stability problem?

well for starters turn off c1 and the enhanced speed steping thing in the bios and un windows power managment put it on performance so it doesnt throttle that could improve performance also you could try upping the vcore a little but to see if it goes stable. Also get memtest and run that to make sure your ram isnt the problem.

what B.walker said. Thermal throttling, C1 and Speed stepping are our nemesies here at OCN. Also bump up the voltage to 1.38v ( i couldnt go above 3ghz below that)
