I'm sure you could. I don't have ghost as most people don't either. I had a copy of it w/one of my mobo's I'll have to dig it out but it's a version from when Socket A was happening so it may not even work due to expiration periods w/free Ghost.

Any way here is some thing else for you .

hortiko, I had a couple of talks a while ago w/ghot when I was learning how to overclock and here is the gist of the conversation. Take it w/a grain of salt because our conversation takes place over a diff cpu and ram but you can learn from it never the less. Enjoy.

Assuming the following, quoted from my above post is true:

Using cross multiplying: 3204/2.6 = x/2.8

(3204x2.8) / 2.6 = 3450Mhz

I don't have a 5400 B.E. sitting around but I bet I could drop it into my mobo with the exact same BIOS settings and get 3450 Mhz. I'm not sure that cross multiplying works with CPU's like it does with most other math, but I also don't see why it shouldn't....and BTW this is 24 hour Orthos - Blend - Priority 9

With the 1066Mhz RAM you HAVE to use 12 x 267 to achieve the 1068 HT clock.



When I first OC'd this rig I had Corsair PC6400 RAM, as you do....and I had a lot of trouble getting 3.2Ghz (stable). However, when I switched to PC 8500 Corsair RAM, two things happened:

1. I HAD to use 12x 267Mhz as my motherboard is an 800Mhz board and ANY other combo of CPU freq. and multiplier would whack out the NB HT freq. and cause severe instability. [267x2=534 534x2=1068 NB HT freq.]

2. I also HAD to change the HT multiplier to 4x instead of 5x...even though the 1066mhz (5x) option showed up in my BIOS after installing the 1066Mhz RAM. At the 5x setting it screwed up the NB HT freq. and of course made the OC unstable.

Like I mentioned above, IF cross multiplying works for OCing the way it works in almost all other math related instances...then YES you should be able to achieve a stable OC at 3450Mhz on air, on that motherboard...with ALL the same settings I used.


Change your RAM to Corsair 1066 and use these settings, on 1603 BIOS:

Settings you cant see: CPU vcore = 1.4750 || HT Multiplier = 4x || trfc = 3 or max. || Max. Async = 8ns || trc = 26 || CPU<>NB HT = 1.250v || NB<>SB HT = 1.35v || NB<>PCI-E = 1.250v || SB<>PCI-E = (auto) || SB standby voltage = 1.7v or max. || SLI Ready memory = Enabled / optimal / max. OC || NB<>SB HT Frequency = (auto) || PCI-E busses = locked @ 100Mhz.

N2Gaming, thanks for explaining where it was at. I myself was a bit confused when reading the manual. The setting itself is named completely different then what I have seen on nForce 4 boards.

Hitoriko, you most certainly could. Another great program for doing such a thing is Acronis True Image. If you have a Western Digital drive you can also run the Western Digital Life Guard tools which is capable of running a drive to drive clone.

Good luck

hitoriko, here is link to a post about a newer mobo and a very brief spill about ram overclocking etc. You were asking about newer mobo's. I don't know if you will be able to find one in your price range but I figured you might like to learn from it none the less.. enjoy

ah mmm so if i say do these setting it might have a better chance?

FSB: 225
Multi: 15
Drop the HT freq to 4x
and change my PCI-E from auto too 100mhz and i should be sweet? or atleast thats the way i should be heading?

Hitoriko, I really don't think your HT link speed needs to be addressed. Isn't the stock speed for a 7850BE 1,800Mhz? If that is the case then you are well below it and far from danger (in terms of high Hypertransport speeds). I'd give 220HTT a try first before going to 225HTT. This would bump you up to exactly 3300Mhz.

Good luck

Exactelactely but I would do as thlker said and try 220x15 first. I had better luck w/that setting using my X2 5400+BE. Of course I am a woos when it comes to overvolting. In any case you are getting the idea.

thlnker. I was under the impression that the mobo has a limit HT. Is that wrong of me to think this. in any case here is a very good article about this mobo I dug up, enjoy.

N2Gaming, thanks for catching that. I keep forgetting we aren't dealing with a AM2+/AM3 motherboard

at the moment my settings are:

230 x 14 Vcore @ (CPUZ shows 1.502) (1.472 in bios)
3220.1Mhz
HT Link: 1150.4Mhz
Ram 5-5-5-18-24
Idle - 30
Load - 36
ORTHOS - 41

another 4 hours hard at it and i've gained 2.2Mhz...woo i had 3300 but wont pass orthos more than 14 seconds

maybe thats my limit? 3.22Ghz

PS. thanks for the rep - i'll be sending some your way

hitoriko, what is your ram voltage set to?

Patients my good man,patients.
420mhz oc so far

edit:here is a snipit from the 3dguru review on the 7850,"the 7850BE shows some potential, we ended up at 3300 MHz, but did have to insert 1.5~1.55 volts into the CPU to keep it stable. At 3400 our Prime95 stress tests would fail after a while."
