The Socket 939 Appreciation Club and Knowledgebase [Official] - Page 2064

post #20631 of 28699
JeremyWW,

Just overclock the ram and test its max speed.. you can get to 230fsb, so test the ram at 460mhz. I would also suggest testing its timings and seeing how tight they will go. You have them at 3-4-4-8, I'd try 4-4-4-8 when trying to overclock higher.

It sounds like your cpu may not like to be overclocked honestly, and the mobo doesn't like to either. Id suggest trying to increase the chipset core voltage, and loosen the ram timings a little.

Have you made sure your bios was up to date? And also you have the dual core optimizer installed? Since you're running a dual core, Bios updates were needed or helped a lot with the socket 939.

If all you can get is 50mhz cpu, just lower your multi and get the ram to 450mhz, tighten the timings to like 2.5-3-3-7 or better and that's that.. Atleast until you get better cooling and can push the voltage more and keep the temps lower.

JeremyWW, can you tell us what model number is listed on your memory? It will either begin with a "D" or a "X". Let us know so that we can tell you what your memory is spec'ed to run at (timings/voltage).

Have you reviewed the guide that I linked you to yesterday? Perhaps I haven't been following the previous posts well enough but it sounds like to me you have not had a chance to find the limits of each component (memory, cpu, motherboard)? A few pages back you were able to achieve an HT Clock speed of 290Mhz. Did you test for stability at that speed?

Let us know

Good luck

Without hauling out the mem strips this is as much info as I can glean. For some reason there is no maker / model info, but as you can see it is Supertalent memory.




@290 I did test for stability, but I'm going to do it again now as it wasn't an exhaustive test. Watch this space...

EDIT: Sigh... No, it's not stable. After 3 minutes 17 seconds, StressPrime failed. For what it's worth the BIOS settings are below. Cool n Quiet is disabled

your command rate should be 1t. 2t is only if you have 4 memory sticks.

I still wish I had your ram to overclock, id give you the max on your cpu, ram, and graphics card.

Also, if you're having this hard of a time overclocking with bios, I'd almost suggest software.. yes, i said it, software overclocking. Just to see what happens.

Problem is the Gigabyte software for this MOBO is rubbish. The board is not CIA enabled so I can't use the Gigabyte pre-sets in the software.

Edit: I downloaded a later version of EasyTune which is a little better. See below, relevant screens - this is advanced mode so there's not a lot you can do. I did try just upping the FSB to 205 and ran a stress test - unstable (hardware failure in StressPrime)

FnkDctr: Actually, you should use 2T if you are experimenting for stability. 1T is a tighter timing and might cause instability on an otherwise-stable setting. I have also had some RAM DIMMs that do not like to run 1T past DDR-420, but ran 2T fine upwards of DDR-500. I would suggest leaving it at 2T for now, and experimenting with 1T at a later date.

JeremyWW: Be leery of using software to overclock. You are far more likely to corrupt the operating system with software than with BIOS overclocking.

JeremyWW, no worries. When you have a second open up the case and check the model number that is labeled on the memory.

Change your HT Link multipler from 4x to 3x and re-run the test. At 290Mhz you had a HT Link speed of well over 1000Mhz. Try to keep your HT Link speed below 1000Mhz if not you may run into stability issues.

If you run into any problems with your OC then make sure to post up the cpu and memory tab from CPU-Z. That information is always helpful.

Let us know

Good luck

That's the first thing I noticed. He was running @ 1160. WAY too high, that'll make an OC unstable very quickly.

Sorry I haven't been keeping up with what Jeremy has been trying to do. What's his issue?
