i am currently running my 2.10ghz brissy @ 3.00Ghz, with my corsair C4 800mhz ram running @ 1000Mhz. i have tested the max of my fsb and 327mhz seems to be the threshold.
x10 multi seems to be my highest whole number cpu multi that i can select as it my rig does not like half dividers 9.5 and 10.5(being the highest) but i seem to be very unstable anywhere above 300x10, even though i have booted into O/S at 3.25ghz but not sure if ram timings, CPU/chipset voltages or htlink multi are holding me back? at the moment i am at 1500mhz htlink - but this is VERY VERY STABLE unlike my old gigabyte board which anything over 1000mhz would just bsod it.
have tried using 1.47v vcore but doesnt like it much, do u guys think that it could be a missed timing on the ram side of things or just needs another bump in vcore to get it to where it needs to be?
also i am currently using OCCT 2 to test for stability. but over 3.00ghz its not stable via this software but not sure if genuine not stable or program bug?, is there any better software to test 100% for stability?
Welcome to the forum, this place is great.
I'll answer your question in part right here, but I'd suggest making your own thread in either the amd general, or AMD cpu sections, so we dont clutter this thread.
You already have quite an OC (good job), but I think that your ram is probably the thing that is holding you back right now... seeing how you have DDR800 ram running at DDR1000 currently, and are trying to get even more out of it. I would lower the ram speed setting in BIOS to DDR667 (might be called 333) or whatever the next lowest one is, as well as lowering your HT multi to 4.
Think about it this way, you already know that your rig is stable where its at right now... so to remain sure that those components aren't whats keeping you back, you should keep them running at or below what they are now, to make it easier to find your CPU max OC.
Of, and OCCT is a great program, it is definitely not lying to you... if that says your not stable... trust it, and back off the OC some. Otherwise you risk all sorts of things (like corrupting the OS).
Good luck, and dont forget to make your own thread, so more people can chime in.
