I know there is not a lot of info here but maybe someone else has had this problem that can help me. I did set my cpu voltage to 1.30 manually and my temps have come down but not a lot. i think I may have to re set my cpu cooler, clean and new artic silver. But still I can't figure out why it went to 1.4 volts

Dan

Having voltages on auto generally overvolt far more than is needed.
You are right to manually set it to 1.3v.

As for the high temps,have you checked them with everest or hwmonitor,just to see if it is close to what the bios reads.

Don't know if this affects you or not but the brisbane cpu,s are known to have wonky temp sensors.

And yes try a reseat of the cooler too.

Good luck

He is running win7 64 so he should have all 4gb.





@Sordrak, lower you cpu volts down to 1.35v until you start overclocking.

Good luck

I downloaded hwmonitor and found one of my cores is getting much hotter than the other, by approx. 20c and that was when i was running bc2. core #0 was at 62c and core #1 was at 80c that's when I shut it down. That was about 10min of play time.

After a whole day folling tips in this thread I got mine working eventually.

Thanks guys


I am now running with only an ATI card in the PC as well. I first had problems getting the PC to even post (no boots and shutting down) but this is something I've always had adn I think was down to memory settings as it seems to have stopped now I have manually set up the memeory (no idea if I have done it correctly though lol)

I had to put a nvidia card in to get the performance control pannel up otherwise I had the locked 4x multiplier issue, I set up a rule to run whenever the temp is bleow 90 and then switched back to my ATI card and its working ok.

If there is anything odd about my settings please let me know as I don't normally do this kind of thing and the memeory page was confusing to say the least (I just copied someone elses)

Well it lasted me a good 2.5 years without any troubles, come on 4/26.

I just ran 3dmark06 to check it had the desired effect and noticed something unusual.
When it was locked at 4x200 it seemed to run just as fast as when i set it to 16x200. Maybe CPU-z wasn't showing it correctly and said it was at 4x when it wasn't.

Initial run
3dmark - 7493 CPU 1383
http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l2.../First_run.jpg

After CPU install 4x200 in CPU-z
3dmark - 14987 CPU 4428
http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l2...ric/newCPU.jpg

After Nvida setting to 16x200
3dmark - 14959 CPU 4304
http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l2...nvidiatune.png

Also my memeory is showing as running slower than I expected at 400 rather than 800. Any idea what setting it is to fix this. The FSB->DRAM is showing 1:2 where I'm guessing it should be 1:4.

Firstly your cpu multi should be at 17. 17x200=3.4mhz stock.
Your ram is ok. It is ddr2, you have double the reading.404x2=808mhz.
Not sure what's going on with 3dmark.Set the cpu multi to x17 and try again see what you get for a score.

hope that helps

Good luck

should i use cpu z to see my timings and manually set them ?
also here is my validation thing

Thanks for that. At least I don't have to worry about my memory now

I set it to 17


and 3dmark was then running at 15241 with CPU at 4484

Tip for anyone with ATI cards.

Once you have setup a profile to load automatically by using a NVIDA card. Swap back to your ATI card (should still load the profile hopefully)

you can change the overclocking by editing the files in
C:\\Users\\<your loggin name>\\AppData\\Local\\NVIDIA Corporation\
Tune\\Profiles\\
and double clicking on them to load them. even though I can't load the control pannel for nvidia I could still change the performance settings this way.
