Not bad. Have you tested this for stability yet? You will also want to lock your pci-e at 100. You won't gain performance from increasing it and you may actually damage it if it's too high.

Hello all, do you guys accept 3.1 65nm models in here? Seems most people have the Windsor 3.0. =P

I'm currently sitting at 3.41 GHz, and I'm pretty sure it's stable. I was only able to get in about 4 hours of Orthos testing, did Memtest, ran 3dmark06, etc...will get to do overnight testing tonight maybe.

The 3.1 model comes with a 15.5x multiplier, and all I did was raise the HT bus to 220, vcore to 1.467 (my mobo goes from 1.4, 1.425, 1.467), and raised the RAM voltage to 1.95 -- gonna try 1.9 later tonight, see if that's stable.

With my Zalman CNPS9700, it idles at about 36C and goes up to 53C in Orthos. Typical load goes up to about 48 or 49C.

Sounds like you're off to a good start! You can fill out your system specs here.

Welcome to OCN by the way! I think you'll find yourself right at home Yeah you can join us, your cpu is a 6000+ afterall! Thanks for joining mate.

Ok, here's the update on my OC.

1) 216
2) 15.5x
3) 3348
4) 1.4v
5) 4x
6) Orthos Blend 12hrs
7) 44C during Orthos reported by Core Temp
8) Stock Cooler

All stock voltages and all case fans on low.

I think my memory is the first limiting factor for me followed by the CPU, there seems to be a lot of headroom in this motherboard. What do you guys think, heres my numbers.

Following the Official Overclocking Guide for AMD socket AM2.
Isolating the motherboard yielded a max reference clock of 292 dialing back for stability 10-20MHz puts that at 272.

Isolating the CPU I could not get it stable over 222, which seems a little low to me. However I did not raise the vCore above 1.45v. I do tend to take the cautious approach when it comes to voltages.

In isolating the memory, no matter what combination I tried, I could not get this memory stable at a mem clk of 420 or above.

Since long term durability is my goal, I intend to find the max OC with stock voltages.

Do you think that upgrading the cooler could yield any increase in OC that wouldn't require raising the voltages?

Not bad. First thing I noticed is that you ran the blend test. Try running the Small FFT test to stress your cpu more. Most 6000+ aren't stable at over 3.3Ghz with only 1.4v so putting it on Small FFT for a couple hours might reveal instability. It's possible that getting a better cooler would enable you to increase your OC w/o adding voltage, but I find it unlikely. However, getting a better cooler will let you safely increase the voltage a little more. And as always, lower temps are better.

Your memory could be the limiting factor. Have you tried increasing your timings and vdimm? Set your vdimm to the RAM's rated voltage and increase the timings slightly. This should help make your RAM more stable. You could also drop the RAM frequency down a notch by changing the divider (for example, setting DDR2-800 as DDR2-667 in BIOS).

^ alternatively to what WBaS said if you have ram with heatspreaders you can blow the vDIMM to .1 or .15 over the rated volts, should gain speed on the same timings. But be cautios and you could feel the memories once in a while to see if they get really hot. and 3.3-3.35 is usually the orthos sabtle clock at 1.4V. So hang in there and good job rickster

Wow, 216 bus on stock voltage? I don't think I can get close to that on stock.

I actually ran Orthos CPU only test, and it only ran for 4 1/2 hours at 3.41. I know you guys say that 8 hours is the officially stable point...so I might need to tone things down a bit. =/

Currently, here's are my settings:
HT bus: 220
Multiplier: 15.5x
Vcore: 1.467 (my mobo goes 1.4, 1.425, 1.467...)
RAM: 733 (from 667)
RAM voltage: 1.95 (from 1.8)
Timing: 5-5-5-15 (from 4-4-4-12)

Any idea how I can improve things to keep my CPU at 3.41? Also, why does it need to be 8 hours? I never use my computer 8 hours in a row (not counting leaving it idle/screensaver), let alone stress my CPU 100% for that long.

P.S. I don't think it's a RAM issue because Memtest passed fine. If anything, I'm going to see if it's stable at lower voltage: 1.9.

Good call on the Blend test. I ran the Small FFT last night and rather than Orthos failing, the machine rebooted during the 14K. I raised vCore to 1.425 and it's gone far beyond that, currently 3 hrs. Temps are holding fine at 45-46C. I have been looking at the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro. Reviews are stellar! Price is so good, I wonder if it could actually be that much better than the stock. What do you think?

Memory timings are currently at 5-5-5-15-25-2T. ( I should have gotten the 4-4-4-12 version of this memory) How would you suggest I loosen them? Should I go directly to 6-6-6-18, etc or should I change one at a time like going 5-5-?-??-??-?T? Where would you set them to start?
I think I will try the timings and test, then try a small volt bump as LoGGi! suggested and test.

Thanks for all the help! This forum is great!
