Overclocked Phenom X3 8650 to 2.9 Can I Go Further????

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently built my sefl a little gaming Rig(well not little antec 300 case)
Purchased a msi K9a2 platinum motherbaord, Amd Phenom x3 8650 (2.3ghz)
8gb of mushkin DDR2 800 pc6400 memory. 2 sapphire toxic Hd radeon 3870's (in crossfire mode), And a antec 650w Power supply.

All running under win vista buissness x64

I uped the fsb to 253, The multiplier is locked at 11.5x so the brings me out to 2.909. My memory is at 847 mhz. Unganged and I have the vcore at 1.45( it runs stable anywere from 1.25 to 1.55) If i move the fsb to 254 the system will not post, I have tried to lower the ht link and memory. Adjusted mem voltage to 2.0. Still nothing.


The system is stable Right now.
11hours of prime 95 tourture test, Temp did not rise above 41c. 3 instances of cpu burn in at 15 hours. Temps never rose above 42c.

Is there anything left for me to do?

I can Take pics of anything if that will help,(bios set up, Rig set up, etc)

If interested In benchmarks I can post those too.

Thanks in Advance
-Mike

1st off welcome to OCN, have you tried the finding the max of each component in your overclock? I.E. max FSB, max stable memory speed, max cpu speed, max HT link? Take a look over this review if you already haven't looked. It'll answer some of your questions.

I have basically the same system...well....Kinda The CPU is the same, But I went with G.Skill Mem, and a Jetway Motherboard the HA-04 Extreme. I have 1TB of space between 3 drives, all Seagate. My OS is XP-Pro 64bit, 2 Gigs of 1066 ram.

It'll be interesting to see how we compare. I've never actually done it myself. Have a friend that is damn good at it but I figure it's time I learned, so I'll be starting in on it tomorrow. Using durchs' nifty guide to get going. Hopefully he'll get this around to other boards as this is the first NooB guide I have seen that makes any sense at all, and trust me...I've read a lot of them. LOL

Anyway, Once I get something interesting I'll be sure to post up here so you can see how I did compared to what you've got going on.

Think we could get some screen shots of your Cell Menu in your bios? I can't seem to get past 2.6 and I have the same motherboard and processor.

pls refrain yourself from using half multipliers, always use full. so im guessin the max full multi on that chip would be 11? use 11, and since ur on 8gbs of ram im guessin all 4 dimms are occupied? if thats the case, youre putting a pretty heavy on the IMC; as amd chips tends to like 2dimms occupied in most cases, and atm ur overall mem speed for all 4 dims are at 847, that sounds just about right in regarding how far 4 dimms will go.. so for more improvements id recommend you to use 1kit, put the mem on a lower divider, loosen up mem timings(we can tighten them up after we reached our destination), up the fsb, and slowly up the vcore to see how much is required for more fsb.. ^ ^ and the processs repeats..
