Cheers, LoGGi. Can you repost specs again please? I'm having a little trouble, as you can see....I need a huge voltage to even get into windows with BSOD, I can make 3.36 on 1.475v but even 3.4 at 1.5v is impossible.

Thanksyooh...

To start with have you fiddled with your RAM timings at all? that is an important part of overclocking the AM2 processors since they have the onboard ram controller, I had to let loose my ram timings from 4-4-4-12-20 to 5-5-5-15-25. Then try going at it again, I don't recall what I had with my 6000+ I think I just gave it the hardcore fsb boostup to 227x15, if your mobo can ahndle fsb you might want to try with 243x14 and tuning down your ram 1 step, wich means going from ddr2 800 -> 667 -> 533 -> 400. If you can set the SB voltage kicking that up 1 or 2 steps can also help ALOT.

As an edit I can point out that this 6400+ i have is the same JH-F3 core that I had in my 6000+ processor and I ran some benchmarks at 3456MHz with this one at 1.405 Vcore (stock volts) and I still run it at 3456 on stock volts, I will not pass orthos but I am not crashing whatever I do, if i try taking it a step higher though I will crash after 30-45 minutes in windows.

Haven't touched my RAM timings at all, can't find where they are
My board is a Gigabyte GA-M52-SP3 so not sure if would handle the higher FSB, I've tried though, trust me...

Also, SB Voltage?

Southbridge voltage, or chipset voltage. The ram timings might be found under CPU settings and DRAM controllet or DRAM/ram settings or something. Don't know how your bios has its menus set.

Pretty much anything to do with overclocking is under M.I.T (Master Intelligent Tweaker) which is fairly gay. Cheers for all the help. I'll see if I get any more luck with Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid (downloading as we speak )

Hey LoGGi! Long time no see mate, thanks for dropping in!

Powelly, LoGGi! gives some good advice. I'd try some of the things he's said. As far as your ram timings and stuff, try pressing ctrl+f1 while in the BIOS. Sometimes Gigabyte likes to hide options from the less experienced users. Your ram could definitely be setting you back though, try setting it as 533 so that it is underclocked. This will eliminate the possibility that ram is your instability.

Hey guys,
Bit of an update - I underclocked my RAM to 400MHz and switched my rig off overnight, booted up this morning to 3.43GHz, which is by no means stable. Temperatures are fine but voltages are nuts (1.55 vcore)

Check teh screenie:


Cheers,
Powelly

You could always set your ram a little slower if needed to increase your cpu overclock. However, your ram runs at a fairly low frequency already so the choice is yours. Having quality ram definitely helps in cpu overclocking!

Yeah man you'll fry your cpu with that vcore. I think you've found your wall. There is a point where it takes a great amount of vcore to gain just a few mhz and I think you've found it. I'd back off your vcore some and setting for a lower overclock. It is unfortunate, but these chips don't really like to be OC'd.
