Want to OC just my CPU - Page 4

post #31 of 127
OK, when OCing the RAM will increase in speed and to some point to fast to remain stable.
To keep an eye on the actual RAM speed, check the "Memory" Tab in CPU-Z for the actual speed its running at. The "SPD" tab gives the RAMs default speed and timings and not what its actually running at.

The HT.
Look at the bottom left corner of CPU-Z for the actual HT speed.
That speed is the CPU speed times 5. So at stock or default the CPU runs at 200, multiply that times 5... 200x5=1000. To keep that speed in check, its best to keep it below about 1200. So the 5 x can be reduced to 4, 3 or 2....
You may find there is no 5, 4, 3, 2, in your BIOS for the HT (or LDT in some BIOS) and the 5x would be displayed as 1000, the 4x as 800 and 3x as 600.

does that help

I gotcha, ty for the explanation. I just checked my order status also and my new 6000+ is on the truck for delivery

Can't wait to get home and start oc'ing it!

Hey guys, got my 6000+ today and I am in need of some expert advice. I started oc'ing it 4mhz zt a time and got to 212 (3.18 i think) and started getting errors. Duke said to up my voltage a bit, but I want to be careful as I am new at this. I am posting a screenie of cpuz and my question is this, is the vcore correct? In the bios it doesnt say what it is already, it just says "auto". I just wanted to make sure before I started messing with it. I have my cpu back to stock for the moment.

Well, you've learned a new thing... the higher the CPU multiplier the higher each MHz increase goes.
4MHz x10 = a 40MHz OC
4MHz x15 = 60
So do remember that, it effects the CPU more than the RAM since the RAMs only increased by the CPU's bus speed.

Back to the CPU voltage.
What and why
Increase the CPU voltage 1 increment and take it from there.
Test for stability and watch the full load temp! Keep the full load below the mid to low 50c range.

Dependent on the BIOS you may have a separate segment that tells you the current voltages being used.

Thanks duke, but I still have the question as to whether cpuz can be counted on as being correct. I assume that it can but I don't want to mess up the voltages. As I mentioned, the bios is on auto and doesnt tell me whats current.

The thing with CPU-Z is this...
The CPU voltage will vary and that is normal... under full load it will drop most of the time due to the load. So you have to consider what you set it at in the BIOS, what you get in CPU-Z with no load and with load.. then basically guesstimate what increase you need to apply to the BIOS to achieve stable speeds with the least amount of CPU voltage which we call "vcore" and still keep the full load testing temp below the mid 50c range.

If we had a "Most Improved OCer" you would get 1st place

lol, ty very much sir! I appreciate that.

One more thing, I applied some arctic silver 5 (I forgot on install) and im wondering if I missed something because my temps went up. I spread it all over the top of the cpu like I always do. Isn't that right?

You want to use very little AS5. It should be merely a film of compound.
A blob the size of an uncooked grain of rice is about right.
Then is about 3-4 days of 24/7 running it will have cured and temps should drop 3-5c.
