At 3500Mhz I´m running 1,43v. I managed to run the Prime at 3600Mhz and 1.5v, but gives error after some minutes in Gta4. Above it can not stabilize at all. It seems even a failure for lack of strength in the Motherboard.

Enjoying the topic, anyone here ever been able to stabilize the HTT over 270mhz?

Edit:
I do not regret to have done the upgrade to the Phenom II, at 3500Mhz he has a fantastic performance and presents no problem and apart from everything I have a great economy in not having to replace the motherboard.

Ninjjah, I'm not to sure if that high of Vcore is required for a 3.5Ghz overclock. Mind including some CPU-Z screen shots of your OC?

That depends on the motherboard I believe. Some boards have a lower HTT threshold.

Good luck

Simfreak47, was it perhaps some of the Utilities you were looking for? Those can be directly downloaded from Asus: http://support.asus.com/download/dow...N-SLI%20Deluxe. Look at the section called, "Utilities". There should be 17 results.

Hope that helps

At 3500 I believe that to get a little down the vcore, I will test this configuration and post here.

About the HTT my question is on the board M2N32 SLI Deluxe,or it varies even within the same model of MB?
post #2545 of 12343
I take a screenshot off the actual configuration, I don´t have time now to test other voltage on vcore, maybe at night. Well:




Someone to leave the NB above 2000mhz on this motherboard?

I believe that the "HTT limit" you are experiencing is actually limitations of the Phenom II NB. I tested my Phenom II 720 on a M3A32-MVP board (has 790FX chipset) where I could overvolt the NB. On that board I could clock the HTT higher than on my M2N32-SLI boards.
And I do know that the M2N32-SLI is capable of relatively high HT frequency (previously I ran a LE-1600 CPU with the HT 320 * 5 = 1600Mhz).

Well @ your current the 720 is 178W TDP so thats a litle over the 125W max the board is supposed to support.

Personally I cant get above 260HTT But that is with stock volts to the NB. BTW mine is a M2N32 Workstation Pro

Occasionally it won't POST and I have to hit the reset switch and enter/exit the BIOS for it to post (seldom with the M2N-SLI: often with my M2N32-SLI), but I had the same issues when I used other CPUs so it isn't really an issue with the Phenom II.

Those are some good Overclocks. GJ.

I trying to understand what you are saying. You say seldomly have to reset and go into the bios w your m2n sli but more often w/your m2n32 sli no matter what cpu you are using and this would be on the 2205 bios?

Thanks,

DrSwizz, the HTT (reference clock speed) is a limitation set by the Ph II NB Frequency? Aren't the two completely separate from each other? The reference clock speed is on the board as oppose to the NB Frequency which is on the processor. From my understanding the high HTT speeds have always been a motherboard limitation (ie. 300mhz ect).

Good luck
