Clock Interrupt BSOD :( - Page 2

SupahSpankeh, the FX600-GLN has a 12volt rating of over 35amps. That is plenty for your setup.
If OCCT is failing(error codes) then there is a hardware conflict somewhere or a component is failing/failed. What tests did you run in Memtest? Make sure you run test 5 and 8 each for at least an hour.
With Orthos you can just run the blend test and watch the temps. Like I said in my previous post you'll know within 15-20mins if temps are an issue.

Good luck

I run my chip at default which is 1.86V up to +.75V depending on the OC. I hope this helps, I know nothing about amperages.

Also, how do you have your Zalman mounted? Vertically or horizontally?

oh my goodness lol.
Your problem is quite clear!.

Those outrageous temperatures are causing instability!.

What is strange to me is that they're so hot in the first place.
Frankly - ESPECIALLY if you have a SINGLE case fan, your CPU (AT STOCK! lol) should NEVER get that hot. - esp seeing that these new phenoms are more energy efficient.

I think you should ENSURE that your heatsink is seated properly - sometimes they give the illusion (parraloxish perhaps) that they are - when they ARENT. - it takes a level view and some thoroughness sometimes
That would explain why it doesnt FEEL hot. The cpu is under there burning, but because the sink isnt making contact - it isnt dissipating the heat.

COOL that CPU! - and I bet the errors will stop.

as for your PSU voltage - dont sweat it. The average 350w PSU on a basic system could run a phenom


-keep us posted ^_^

Grim, good suggestion.

SupahSpankeh, make sure the TIM (thermal interface material) is being spread across the IHS properly. I would take off the cooler and double check to see if there is contact being made.

Good luck

Temps sounds like a likely culprit to me too. 60 odd C is far too hot for a poor ikkle phenom.

It's currently 51 degrees idle. the temp in here is 27C. Is +24C a reasonable increase over ambient air temp at idle?

The Zalman is mounted horizontally (blows air towards the outtake fan). I'm assuming this is the way to do it?

EDIT: Am following suggestions above - just got in from work so I'm taking a moment to reply to the easy stuff first - your suggestions above have not been disregarded.

EDIT2: Ran AMD overdrive stability test today - 54 degrees C all the way. Seems it doesn't push it anything like as hard as any other benching/torture test utilities. BAD AMD!!1!

Hmm. Checked the TIM - Looks evenish. Pretty even. Well, very even truth be told. Got an old stock heatsink drifting around. Trying it now.

I should start some sort of blog to avoid forum spam.

I wonder if replying to your own post is an early warning sign for schizophrenia?

Anyway, have fitted stock heatsink. Mixed results. Firstly the temperature is the same, which isn't great but considering the zalman moved more air towards the back of the case I'm not massively surprised.

What is good news (huzzah) is that the stock heatsink is hot. Painfully hot. and it indicates 50C. Looks like we're onto a winner - the heatsink is actually conducting away the heat, even if it is utter bobbins at disposing of it (the lack of a rear chassis fan is probably a contributer to this).

Will enable AMD CnQ to keep temps down until I can get a rear casefan. Anyone care to recommend a good new heatsink? Like, the best price/performance ration for socket AM2+? Preferably with a speed control connection, was heartily sick of the 9700's manual control.

Hooray. 40C idle with CnQ enabled - have a deskfan pointing at it until I get a new heatsink. Suggestions welcome!

SupahSpankeh, also remember that these processors have 4 cores. The temperatures will probably be noticeable higher then a dual core. I believe the TDP for the Phenom's is not low.
Case airflow plays a big part in cooling. Without an exhaust fan all that warm/hot air is just building up inside so that may explain for most of your problems. What kind of intake fan are you running?

Good luck

Well, the intakes I have are a front 120mm which comes with the TT Armour case. I also have a TT fan door directly opposite the heatsink. The rear fan was a TT fan with LED "skywriting" doohickeys. removed it during the heat issues as I noticed it was throwing dust out to the sides and the actual air moved out of the back of the case was negligible.

Have a vast deskfan pointed straight at the open case - it's cool as a cucumber at the moment. I've got a 120mm fan arriving tomorrow along with some Arctic Silver 5.

So, 2 questions:

1. Can anyone recommend a good heatsink? AM2+ obviously, preferably available in the UK and for less than the price of my firstborn.

2. Do you guys run with CnQ enabled or not? Obviously losing the heat would be lovely but frankly I would like an uber powerful CPU, and I'm worried that leaving it enabled will gimp my FPS/encoding while I'm using it for the purpose for which it is intended

Alot of people like myself originally mount the Zalman the easiest most obvious way, vertically, which isnt the best for overall case flow. Your problen is more likely your case fans than the Zalman at this point. I would exhaust that case and your fan options before spending money on another heatsink. Case fans are cheap. Like Gen said, get some decent exhaust going in there. My fan setup may look backward in regards to the exh/int ratio, but because of the way my case is built, the fans are 2/3 of the way into the case. One 120mm blows straight past my GPU, to 2x60mm exhaust, keeping it 10C cooler than most 8800GTs with stock cooling. The other 120mm blows right on the ram HPC an inch away, and directly into the Zalman which exhausts to 2x80mm exh fans 2 inches away. THe 120mm's and 80mm's are on a PWM chain with the Zalman to the 4 pin CPU plug.

PWM will give you what you wanted from CnQ without slowing down your system. Your fans will be as fast as they need to be according to your heat. I have noticed no difference in temps between using PWM and 100% fans all the time.

I think the Zalman is decent. People say a lapped TRUE is the best for Air Cooling, but I do alright with my Zalman. I can OC to mid 2.9s easily without heat problems.

Are you getting those temps at stock speeds and voltage?

I only get hot when I raise the volts.

Cool 'n Quiet is the OCers worst nightmare, TURN IT OFF AND FORGET IT EXISTS !!!!
