Hey Guys I was a little whacked yesterday and no it is not drugs .It was a lack of sleep. Me and Buddy of mine that happen to just drop by to visit.
I phone him up and told him I just bought the new 9850 be he was like right on are you ready to test it and find its weak spot . I was like yes I want to find out were speed meets productivity that is were I want this process to be. The Happy medium between both.
For those Of you that won't get that . read here! these are just numbers to show you .it is easier to use large #'s for scores
OK you over clock you're CPU to lets say 2.6 ghz you get 11650 3d mark score from an unclocked score of 10650. It like yes I increased by 1000 pionts that is way much faster then it was. I want more .So you take up to the next step which is 2.8ghz a 200 mhz not a big deal but you find you score just went down 100 points so now your 3d mark score 11550. Then is like well I am still faster then my base score of 10650 but slower then my first increase of 11650. so you go up again 2.9 ghz , now your score is 12650 wow other increase by another 1000 points . You think a bit and try another step up which is the big 3.0 ghz but you find that it is not stable so you say that is all i got until i up the voltage or something. but you are wrong
now let's see b3 stepping 3 is odd # so ever 3 steps has to be odd well yha it will be right. yes if you keep using multipliers it will. but now you have to use bus speed or voltage. Voltage is a good bad thing. It stables the cpu but makes heat.
roughly ever .025 you go up your cpu heat will increase around 2c. Now what I'm saying is you got more to do then add voltage . you got options here and in the end it all comes down to being stable no matter high your voltage will be it play a vital part. but we are not even close to using it yet so don't worry it causes head echs .
SO you increase bus 1 mhz at a time to find out yes you can get more with out moving voltage. How much more is up to the cpu clock and what ,it can take andthat is for you to find out.
Now 1 and 0 are usally neutral when it comes to stepping by bus 1 may or may not count as odd# but it is hard to find out where this might happen and at which decimal point .because it is used allot more then other numbers.
example when over clocking the most used number for last number will be -----.
so I pick the next # 3 i love 3.
with 3 we can figure out which number 1's count if needed but most of the time it won"t come to that only on your end result.
to prove my theory get cpuz or something like it and watch you cpu do it's stepping. you will see your bus speed go up and down same with core and ht link speed
this part it is hard for me to explain to you because to explain math in it would maybe take days. So I going to give my settings and explain for now what i look for to let me know I am in a sweet spot and this 9850 has a few of them all the way to 3.7 ghz 1 and 0's if you start with an odd the only thing that will screw up caculations are 1 and 0. take 3.6 add 1 to 3 you got 4 bad add 1 to 6 you got 7 subtract 3 from 7 oh theres that 4 again
so most time 4 will be bad even number for 3 ghz so to be safe i rather the result to be lower then 4 that is a lot 1 or 3 is less so less chance of going over board .
back to watching cpuz what you need to look for is consolations of odd numbers if this don't happen you stepping is even. there will be even numbers for sure there has to be it is counting .it is the # after the . you will be watching on all three cpu speed bus speed Htt link
Ever time you see odd # numbers line up the second next speed will be even
and in that sequence
so if goes odd , even etc..... good
but if goes odd ,even , even not good because you cpu just skipped a step and there are a lot of things that can do this voltage to much or to less and so on
Ok I have another Job and it calls but I will at you at this and play a bit keep you cpu low when doing this under 2.6 and above 2.5 and do some testing with it
I am ruining 2.992 <-- i will talk on that 2 later
cpuz shows me 1 3 5 .1 cpuspeed .3 bus speed . 5 Htt speed
1 4 6
1 1 5
1 2 4
ever odd count is odd # cpu is doing it job relaxing which means it has more time doing other things
2.99 3.0 3.1 ghz 3.2
15592 3d mark score 15016 3d mark score 16850 16011 get it yet lol
I heard tbl could be something do with even #'s but that is hear say
enjoy it will be awhile before I come back and type again I hate typing reminds me of coding
little note using them # up top 2.99 and 3.0 2.59 will give to better score then 2.6
odd 3 stepping that is why it 2.5 ghz not 2.6ghz
i tried to explain the best i can and if you have negative on it .don't botherEdited by ZigZagFreeBurning - 6/15/08 at 7:41am
