I cant go higher than 350 fsb with my rampage - Page 2

post #11 of 13
If those temperature readings are correct I would stop overclocking now. The G0 chips should only go up to 72C when under LOAD, and you're approaching it with your idle temperature. Intel specifies a safe range of under 72C for the chips. If its a B3, is about 62C (not sure exactly, but somewhere 60-65C). Run Prime95 on small FFTs to see if the chip is stable. This will also generate high temperatures, so you can see how close to 72C you are. If it is at or above that, I would highly suggest backing down the CPU volts and speed until the temperatures at load are under control. Otherwise, you risk damaging your chip.

Well its stepB revGO .I dont feel comfort anyway with those temps specially NB and given the fact that at 2,16Ghz and 350 fsb system is stable and temps are cool(look my system specs) i think i will stop .But its a pity with this hardware not to go higher...(i paid one and half salary to build this rig)...

You should be able to clock up to a 400 FSB with the memory on the lowest divider without running the ram out of specs.
Man its little to much all this to me but i must do it in order to learn .i know that... but if its to have 400 fsb and chips on fire i dont know if i will stay there.....thanks a lot showing me the way up....
