you really don't even need the HT @ 1000, i'd suggest lowering it before you go further. HT is like a 6 lane highway, if you have 6 cars traveling on that highway and you add another two lanes, you're not going to increase your flow of traffic.
as far as overclocking past 3 GHz, good luck. there's some good FX series that will overclock to about 3.3 GHz on suicide runs (that little bugger that beat me for instance in the contest
) but my old fx-55 would do about 3 GHz @ 1.6v and that was it. couldn't even get another couple hertz out of it....
tinker with your ram timings. if you're trying to find the max overclock on your proc, lower everything down and just worry about the processor first. then find your other stuff and make everything work in harmony!
I actually have the HTT at 3x whilst playing with the fsb and stepping etc i just ramp it up later and founbd even at about 1250 she never crashed the due to the HTT speed..strange i know i put that down to the hardware combo being a good match, or intellegent design theory.
i'm trying to find my best FSB speed then seeing how high i can get the multi. this will give me more performance that a cpu at 200x15 is all.
Hence the problem the cpu doesn't want to overclock when raising the volts so should i try undervolting?
Had anyone come accross a CPU that behaved like my one and found a solution?'
as for that phenom 939 OC hmm somethings not right there i'm sure they don't make a 939 phenom 2
opps caps sorry
