right now i have the voltage set to 1.3 leaving the multiplier in auto which seems to leave it at 16 and the clock at 207 which gets the CPU from 3.2--3.31 but i cant run more than a minute on prime or orthos wihtout one of the threads stopping?? what are the threads in Prime? Here's the pic of my voltage control can you tell me which one to turn up.. right now im turning up the first option which is set to 1.3, all the other voltages are default

wow how the hell did i miss that one, i alway went into the advance configurations and never really did anything to that one.. ill do that now.. and check the voltages.. no wonder when i was in cpuz the voltage never went over 1.28
Ok i changed it but the only problem is that the minimum i have is 1.525

Hm funny the little things we miss when we don't fully understand our hardware. Maybe this well help your overclock. I would think those settings on the second screen shot you posted would be fine set at auto. FYI I know the H word is not really considered a bad word by some but other members might not feel as openly acceptable about it and could possibly cause a little stink over it.

Hi to all Assusins,
I am wondering what is your overclocking experience with M2N-SLI, chipset Nforce 560.
I can reach only something around 225-230 Mhz on FSB, Im suspecting passive cooling.
Do you have any tips on that?
Thx

we really could have a hard time helping you if we dont know what hardware software you are using. we know you mobo but we need other hardware info and temps your seeing under load and at idle. edit your system and show off your hardware from w/in the user cp page.

i need some help with overclocking. Im running what shows in my pc profile below. I cannot get the pc stable at all using everest or prime.. i raised the cpu frequency to 209 and left the multiplier on auto(16x) and then played with the voltage anywhere from 1.3-1.56 but i cannot get anything to run for more than 2 mins. My temperatures are running at 65c could that be a factor? If i up the cpu frequency is that the same as raising the fsb in other motherboards does it mean that it also raises the speed of my ram? How would about properly overclocking this mobo and cpu? I really need help i've spent several nights reading and posting here and there and running stress tests and nothing.

Above there are a few pics of my bios screen so if you want to help you could guide me around.. although everyone here uses, im guessing, m2n sli deluxes or similar.

Hey Yomny,

65C ?!?! Take it down, something is not quite right. No way you should be running at anything over 55C stressed, my prime95 won't go over 52C and it idles at 36c. A few things might be the problem with that high of a temperature. You have your vcore too high, your thermal paste is not right or that stock cooler is not good enough. The stock cooler; is that the one with the two heatpipes?, or just a plain block of metal? I think that those three are the main reasons to have it that high.

Check them both but I'm betting on the thermal contact. Which means that you better have more, Arctic Silver5 (ac5) is what most people used. Use a drop about of the size of a grain of rice right on the centre of the cpu, seat the cooler on top but before you fasten it in place twist it clockwisecouter clockwise once or twice, not much just about 1/8-1/4 inch then lock it into place. When/If you remove the hsf check see how well covered it was and please, if you can, post a small image of it for use to see and have that ruled out.

One thing that just came to me, I haven't seen any info in any of your posts as to how fast you have that 6400 at right now. There is a Black Edition Club of which many of the members are running 6400 cpus The Black Edition Club. I know you are not looking forward to more reading but until we/you find out why it is so hot there is not much to be done because that is probably why you are not stable.

Let us know what the cpu is running at right now...and see if you can find out why it is so HOT

G-Byte, I have to agree with you on this heat possibly being the reason for the benchmark failures. I could point you in a couple of directions. However I would like to know that you have ruled out some basic things before I send you in a direction that could possibly be devastating to your rig.

First things first, do you know the stock settings for all your hardware. i.e. ram spds/timings/voltages same for CPU and yes by the way to your question about fsb and CPU Freq. they are one in the same. Also yes to your question about increasing your fsb, it will also increase your rams bandwidth. It has to do with the divisor inside the CPU and how the memory controller built into the CPU manages the ram. I would like to know some basics before I make any overclocking suggestions.

Next I would like to know if you ever ran your system at stock spds and passed any benchmarks. First benchmark you should run before any other inside windows is a memtest86. This will prevent a lot of problems and let you know that you have at least passed ram tests and that your system should be able to obtain favorable benchmark scores/results while running at stock speeds. If your system is not stable at stock speeds then you'll have a doosie on your hands trying to get it stable while overclocking it with high temps.
Once you know your ram passes memtest86, then run a Stress/Torture test but only after you record your idle temps. During your Stress Testing keep an eye on your temperatures. You should not get higher then 50C if you’re at stock settings w/a factory CPU heatsink & fan.
When you get to that point I will be more then happy to help you push it but until that time I honestly don't think it is safe. Your temps are too high.

In all honesty. It seems as if you have not been able to get any good overclock stable. So with out passing judgment let me recommend something. Get a free copy of memtest86 if you don't already have it. Google will point you to a few. Maybe we have some links in our memory threads, I have not looked. Make sure your ram passes memtest86 with flying colors with in at least 12-24 hours the longer the better. The more ram you have the longer you want to run the test. If it fails memtest86 then clear your cmos and start over with all stock and auto settings. Run memtest86 again.

Stress tests could fail for many reasons. There is quit a bit of hardware perimeters and settings that can cause your system to feel ill or act like it's hurting in some way. A lot of times improper settings will make your PC seem broken and just plain ol non responsive. So please do your self a favor and start with the basics. You have to get your system stable first and foremost and if you can't do it at stock setting then we have the task of trying to find out why not. I'm not trying to discourage you only trying to help.

Oh yeah do you know for sure if your rig is virus free no spyware etc. sometimes software will play a part in system stability.

No one has m2n-sli with nf560? I just want to know what is your Mhz limit for FSB.
post #320 of 12349
Thread Starter 
are you asking wha the mother board fsb limit is? well I can only suggest dropping your multi by about 2 or 4 and lowering your ram to about ddr400 and them upping your fsb until you cant boot then you will know your mobo fsb limit.
