It could be that your chip will not take the 3.5 you got, maybe try backing off a little and see if it will become stable again, also what volts you using elsewhere ?

2.1 mem
1.5 fsb


i did mem test... and passed no problem.. but can someone explain to me if i even did the mem test correctly.. lol

i just made sure i was at 99%mem usage while test was running.. i belive thats what the directions indicate.. i have 2.85 avalible ram... so i was testing 99% of it.. the other 1% was the applications running in windows.

I've heard OCCT does a VERY stressful CPU test. It would crash in 10 min on my rig at one point, while Orthos ran fine for hours. Could have been a total fluke though. I like to run OCCT for 2 hours, and Orthos as well to be sure I'm really stable. IMO OCCT is a good test.

In your case, it could just be that OCCT stresses your Cores more and it's failing, but I'm not 100% sure.

I mentioned in another thread that I couldn't pass a stress test because my Voltages were set a little too low in the BIOS (Northbridge/southbridge). Other voltages you may want to check are PCI-E and RAM. Just make sure you don't over volt and/or overheat.

Nothing, specifically. But your system won't run stable unless EVERYTHING (sorry for the caps) is running with enough voltage.

That is why, when you overclock, you should take all the voltages off AUTO and set them yourself to exactly what you need.

When Orthos or OCCT stresses your computer, it's not just running the CPU - all the components in your system (i.e. RAM, northbridge, southbridge, PCI-E) are being utilized (at least somewhat), and they need a specific amount of power to run properly.

So if your voltages are too low for anything, your system could crash or "BSOD" at any time.

You're going to want to check the manual and some overclocking guides or get advice from someone you can trust when seeking the correct voltages for your specific motherboard. Because over volting anything can lead to fried components.


*** EDIT:

I see you have the same motherboard as I do. For some more information, this handy Overclocking guide by nVidia for the 680i chipset may answer some questions. It did for me. Hope it helps.

prime 95 passed ..

so im happy with that.. my pcie bus is overclocked to 125 from 120 .. stock voltage was 1.4 .. moved it up to 1.45

I would seriously try OCCT for 2 hours or Orthos for 6 hours as well. A lot of people around here will tell you the same thing. One of those tests run for that duration will really prove if your system is stable. I'm not trying annoy you, but it's probably just a good idea to run one of those to be 100% sure IMO.
