Help with OC'ing Ballistix Tracer 4 x 2GB on 680i LT

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Friends:

I am having tons of trouble stabilizing a memory OC on my PC. I know my mobo is a pain in the butt, however I was hoping you can be of some assistance.

Right now I'm running my CPU at 3.15Ghz at 1.50 vcore (1.44 vdroop) and can pass 24 hour prime95 small FFT's test.

Now my problem is if I run anything other than memory linked and synched at stock speeds 4.4.4.12 at 2.2v I can't pass a prime95 blended test.

I've tried uping the mem bus to 800, 900, 1000. I've played around with the first 4 timings in my bios and I've run benchmarks in Everest and memtest without problems. But no matter what I do I fail a prime95 blended test.

I'm tired of futzing around and like to go back to the beginning and working this systematically to get the most out of my cpu and stick combo.

What should I do? Where should I begin?

Any help is greatly appreciated. This forum is the best!!!

You shouldnt need that much voltage for the cpu @ 3.15 you sure you can't get that lower first? If your having trouble with your ram you might have thought it was the CPU thus making you put the voltage up that high.

the 680i LT board HATES the quad processor I found out after I bought my system. It can hit 3.0 easy as pie (maybe around 1.29 or 1.3) but to go above that it needs a helluva lot of volts.

With that stated I can lower my cpu OC to 3.0 and lower vcore, however i know the CPU is stable at these settings since it passes a prime95 24 hour small fft test.

Maybe I'm simply uneducated. Am I was told by sources because of my mobo issues to set vcore to 1.5 (maximum safe voltage) and get the highest CPU OC possible.

Also, does this impact the ram at all?

try 950mhz timings 5-5-5-15/2T ive got my 2x2gb red tracers on those timings and they are stable.

try it with 2x2gb.
If its fine with 2x2gb, you have a chipset/memory issue, this is common with many boards.
