Lower your HT to 4x, and it could resolve your instability issue. Mine was very unstable with HT of 5x

Ok ... right now Im running orthos .... Im sitting at 14x multi, 4x HT, and 236MHz bus, which sets my CPU up to 3.304GHz ... I had to lower my ram from 800MHz to 667MHz just to boot up so my ram is actually only at 367MHz right now ... or 734MHz ... kinda gay considering I wanted to get it up to 1000ish ... but i couldnt boot when i left it on 800MHz ... right now cpu-z is saying my ram fsb:dram is at cpu/9 ... is there any way for me to lower that? right now my mems timings are 5-4-4-15-22-2T ... should I change any of that?

it didnt last ... got like 22 mins with orthos and stopped ... sigh ... i dont think I can break the 3.3 mark ... my cooling just doesnt seem to be good enough. I set my vcore to 1.4v but cpu-z measures it at about 1.38v and running on full load my CPU is at about 55C-56C. If i up the vcore to 1.425v which cpu-z measures at about 1.4v then my cpu on load is at about 65C running orthos about 10 mins in ... I usually dont let it go past that because i dont want it to steadily get hotter. i know my system would be stable past 3.3 if only i had better cooling ... guess im stuck at 3.27 ... sigh

i dunno what i did but i managed to get my ram up to 944MHz and now my fsb:dram says cpu/7 so i guess thats better? i just loosened the timings a bit and uped the speed from 667 - 800 ... seemed to do the trick

Happy to hear that... it seems your Mobo has a setting termed as Memory Divider or FSB/DRAM setting which control the difference in memory clock rate and FSB speed either manual or did it automatically, but I lack this feature in my entry level mobo.

You sitting at 3.304Ghz still? Keep us updated as to the stability...

LOL... for some reason my systems max temp at full load now is only 46C! Im still at 3.304GHz with 944MHz RAM and im running orthos now, so we shall see how long it lasts ... if it goes over 2 hours I'm done!

ok well that only lasted about 20 mins in orthos, so i upped the vcore and it ran for 39 mins ... ill try upping the vcore one more time but this will bring me up to 59C or so and I dont want to push it too hard ...

Up to 59 is ok, even 60C, this chip will burn up at 90C plus or minus 5C... and orthos is extremely hard on CPU.

You know what? I think you are better off slightly less OC'ed and with peace of mind. thats what I did here. I can reach over 3.3 here too, but my temps were going up to 61C though Orthos ran for 4 hours. We can all reach 3.3 stable with better cooling. It's up to you to decide... right now I'm just slightly under the 3Ghz mark but also load temps at 59C max and the chip is rated 55C to 63C operational limit.

But like I said AMD told me that this chip will burn up at 90C plus or minus 5C, so it now has more to do with its life expectancy whatever you decide.

You initially wanted to OC ram which you achieved, you should be a happy camper now.

Yeah the only way I can get over 3.3Ghz to run stable on my system for more then 39 mins is to up the vcore 1 more step ... but them my temps are going over 65C and at about 67C-68C my mobo shuts my comp off ... I haven't been able to find the setting in my bios to turn that off, but its ok seeing as how I don't want to run that hot anyways ... If I keep it at about 3.29GHz I can stay stable with max temps of 56C and I can get the ram up to 944MHz which I'm fine with. I'll fiddle around a little more with 3.3 but I think I've found my limit with this cooling. Thanks for the help alcymart and everyone else! Good Luck with your systems!
