Overclock progress

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Some questions on my current OC.

I have been nudging the FSB up slowly to where it is now. Temps are low and consistent, so far 100% stable mem and CPU.
Based on the numbers you see here, is there anything I should watch out for?
-Still on stock voltage for everything.
-RAM speed indicated in CPU-z = 540, DDR, which means its running at 1080? I read the stickies and a lot of posts, just want to make sure I'm interpreting it correctly.



I see a lot of people pushing G0's to 3.2 -3.5 on air, at what point do i need to start worrying about my ram?

I think if I were you I'd put the memory on a divider just to get it out of the way of the CPU OC for now. Once you nail down your CPU OC you can come back and find the max frequency of the RAM.

and yes you are interpreting the ram speed correctly: 540=1080

Will do. Just to clarify that I did interpret the guides correctly, DDR at 540mhz in CPUz = 1080mhz running right?

Yup, the DDR2 actual frequency is doubled. Just double whatever CPU-Z tells you.

Worked my way up to 400 FSB x9 for 3.6g / RAM 960mhz 5-5-5-15
temps are 43-46 idle 52-54 load.

vcore: 1.45v
ddr: +.1v
fsb: +.1v
mch: +.1v

I was stable and after upping the voltage to compensate for a dump, I get an OCCT crash.

If i take the vcore higher i get hotter/run the risk of cutting down the lifespan, right?
Should I bump the FSB to +.2v to see if the 400 FSB is triggering the crash?
