what power voltages - Page 2

post #11 of 16
333mhz FSB, 9x cpu multi ... most likely will only need to raise the vcore enough to get rid of the drooping voltage. I would start for that as your first goal.

Some programs to help you out..

CPU-Z - a must for displaying info, specs and voltages of your rig
Orthos - a must for stress testing your settings for stability
CoreTemp - useful for temp's and displaying your CPU's VID

some others to get 'into' later..

SetFSB, ClockGen and MemSet

..I will be waiting for your first OC post back.

Thanks again!
It was my great pleasure to take the time to explain all that. It was nothing at all for me (but fun).

And I'm honored to be the first building brick! Thank you!

You're quite welcome to the information, sir. I'm glad I could serve you. That's what this place is all about, too!

I wish you all the best.

Oh, and be sure to take the time to read the overclocking guides posted as stickies. And there's also a thread dedicated to the motherboard (known as "mobo") in this specific forum for Intel Motherboards. For the sake of convenience, just click here. I mean, why go looking for it? heh But it's there alongside some other goodies. And check the Intel CPUs forum too. There are a couple of good overclocking guides in there!

And always remember: This is an art form. I wouldn't say that the results MAY vary: I say that they WILL vary. There's no written document that can tell a person how to get exact results. It will simply guide them to get the best results from their system, and some guides show examples of what's being talked about.

Anyway, above all, ask questions whenever you have them. It doesn't matter how bad you think the question is: ask it. Wise men seek instruction.

OK i raised my FSB from 1066MHz to 1086MHz and rebooted and run orthos and got an error prety quick:

Possible hardware failure, consult readme.txt file, restarting test.
ERROR: ILLEGAL SUMOUT
Maximum number of warnings exceeded.
Torture Test ran 0 minutes 47 seconds - 0 errors, 100 warnings.
Execution halted.

Whats the path to get to the readme.txt file?
This program crashed twice on me. Im using Vista Ultimate x64. Does Orthos run on x64?

I just found out that orthos dont run to well on vista x64. I downloaded OCCT and run the test. The alarm is set to go off if the cpu exceeds 70c. It got to 92.4% and the alarm sounded and the test stopped and said "CPU too hot". The no.1 and 2 core were at 70% while the 3 and 4 were at 67%. The test lasted about 5mins. Can anyone tell me what this means? I also tried using Prime95. The test showed to be running but not much was happening in the window display. Is this the way it usually runs? How long should I leave it run for?

As I mentioned in my first post, have a look in my thread for new members. It links to software you NEED to use before you start OC'ing anything. Just because others might disagree in the advice it doesn't meen it is wrong.

OCCT giving you that warning meens that your CPU is running hotter than it is supposed to under load, that is a bad thing.

I think this is because I have my PC inside a homemade workstation cabinet. I have 3 standard house air vents down beside the PC to let more air in but Im also stuck beside the kitchen radiator. I think this is playing a major factor in the temps. My watercooling parts arrived today and Im just waiting on 2L of PCchill to arive so I can rig it up. Im hoping this will drop my temps a good bit and sort that problem. I check out that thread for new members and software. Thanks for the advice!
