Can i oc my RAM? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
You can't do anything about the vdroop without a new motherboard.

Also, you should stop OC'ing your CPU while on stock cooling. It's just not safe, especially with the faulty temp sensors on those cards.

Thanks for the advice Low Strife.Anyway,i don't really care about the cpu,i'd like to oc it and to lasts 4-5 months,and i'm not running the pc 24/7,around 4-5 hours a day.Btw,i'm always keeping the cpu multiplier at 9,should i lower it and raise the fsb?In the end....even a 3.4ghz would be enough.thank you

Well you CAN improve the vdroop, I used a pencil mod to do it and it really helps OC stability but the vdroop is there to protect the 45nm, so be warned. You can goole p5nesli and pencil mod/vdroop and should be able to find some info. What are you using to monitor your temps?

A Vdroop of 0.15v...? That can't be right... Are you sure your vcore settings are saved when exiting the bios? Man, I thought I had bad vdroop with 0.06v--I've NEVER SEEN a tenth of a volt, if not more! Wow...

Yeah, try the pencil mod.

Did you get anywhere in reading the RAM thread?

hey!!!now that the guy from above said that my bios could not save my settings is there any way that i could verify that???The thing is that i've just set my multiplier to 8.0 and in cpu-z shows 9.0.But all other changes made to bios seems to be saved.How can i be sure that my bios saves the changes???And is there any way to remediate this?Thank you

You could always do something like turn off your audio in the bios and see if you still get sound

It might not be all the bios settings that aren't being saved--only some. For example, I'm guessing you're changing your FSB--if it is changed in CPU-Z when you reboot, then obviously that's working. Give that a shot--but the vcore, I'm fairly certain, is not changing. Did you disable any C1E and EIST features in the bios? If settings aren't being saved, it could mean a bios update is necessary.
