Thanks a lot for the advice! I have read through chunks of this thread, although its a hefty thread! hehe, so I'm slowly making my way through it. I've also read through the other thread you linked, and always have both of these threads open on my laptop when tinkering with my PC, hehe.
Anyways, I tried the settings you recommended, and both failed to post, good thing for that easy recall on these boards, hehe. As for my VID, when its OC'd to 2.8 Coretemp says that the VID is 1.3250. On a side note, I know I have everything setup for 2.8Ghz, and Coretemp says its at 2.8, but OCCT and CPU-z both say 2.4Ghz.... Have I made a mistake somewhere else?
Anyways, I'm going to start tinkering with smaller FSBs at CPU 8 mult, I'll let you guys know how that comes along. Thanks again!
Update (so I dont keep making more posts)
Well.. I figured out the CPU-z display thing, it pops up to the proper multiplier when I run Prime, and assumably anything else that makes use of the system... so ignore that noob mistake.
Also, I managed to hit 3.2! Almost... hehe, Prime froze the computer after about 4 minutes...
I went with:
CPU Ratio Setting_______8
FSB Strap to NB________Auto
DRAM Command Rate___2N
DRAM CLK Skew Ch.A___Auto
DRAM CLK Skew Ch.B___Auto
DRAM Timing Control____Auto
DRAM Static Read______Auto
DRAM Dynamic Write____Auto
AI Clock Twister________Light
AI Transaction Boost____Auto
CPU PLL Volt___________1.5
FSB Termination Volt____1.38
Clock Over-Charging Volt_Auto
CPU GTL Volt Ref________.63x
NB GTL Volt Ref_________.67x
CPU Spread Spec________Disabled
PCIE Spread Spec_______Disabled
So... I guess it needs more juice? Or should I pull back on the FSB?
edit: I just want to add... i read where you got it stable like 5 years ago.. im sorry. Maybe i should read the entire thread before posting. lol
