yeah it paid off! I just love to fiddle around with the
settings hehe.. but overclocking CPU to high freqs is
tricky.. only tried it once or twice. Changing the multiplier
isn't so hard, nor some increasement in FSB but..
Then it's hell lol

This little machine is now basically maxxed, I guess..
Well more memory on the way, and some overclocking
could be done.. but why push it
Yes. It was actually because of the whole 4x issue that I ended up finding out about this thread/club. The people here have just been fantastic.

Good for you on your learning. The 965BE (this is a C3 processor, not a C2) will easily reach 4GHz. If you have good memory and good PSU, try pushing HTref to 300MHz. There are ways to do this and you will see that the system becomes even more responsive overall. You can even throw an SSD drive in there for a more ultimate experience and will give the i7 boys a run for their money.

Oh, I will try that
but look
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1656393
it says: Stepping : RB-C2
oh and ya, I upped the FSB to 214, so trying multiplier tomorrow
should be sleeping, but the pills didnt work heh
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1656430

PSU is at 700watt, made for sli, detachable cables n such
and yes, I use SSD as systemdrive ^^
the memories I have so far seems tweakable, only
problem I might encounter is as to which speed I want
to put them on if I for example want 4ghz?

HTref hmhm, new territorium for me
Thanks a lot ^^
I'm guessing the 2x1GB Random Access Memory modules will arrive today or tomorrow, so another 2gb.

Everto, i notice you are running 2x 8800 gts in sli. what game are you playing to get 100fps? i hit 90fps in black ops with everything maxed out except for AA on my 9800 gt sli.

Looking good.

My 965BE is a C3. I was not aware AMD made a C2 version. Is yours the 140W or the 125W version?

Back on page 1 is is a link to a proper OC procedure. The general idea is to isolate the cpu, memory and mainboard in succession to see the limits of each. On the M2N32, I've come to the conclusion once you get past 260MHz, you want to drop the HT multiplier down to 4X. You'll also need to increase the NB voltage to 1.3-1.35V to get the higher FSB to be stable. I also increased Vcore to about 1.4V effective. I believe AMD rates this processor to run up to 1.5V, but some will push past that to do benchmarking runs from what I've seen.

About your memory question, if you're running @ 1066 now, you will likely need to drop that down to say 800MHz in BIOS so the effective DDR2 speed when you OC does not exceed the limit of what your memory can run at. You can use the Nvidia System Monitor or CPUZ to see the effect of your OC settings on RAM speeds.

Oh, Team Fortress 2, Killing Floor,
but well haven't tried all games
I noticed in WoW that some new feature with
sunlight doesn't work well with these cards :/

Allright, thanks I think it is at 125W, but when I searched for the OPN: hdz965fbgibox, it says 140 watt
on one page, can't check much more now since got
an appointment, which I don't really wanna go to but anyways ;P haha

Did a minor OC, 210 x 18, increased voltage with 0,125
from 1,350 or so .. will leave it running til I get back and
lets hope it does

Well, it didn't crash or anything, but I didn't put it under load.
Got my new memory modules today, yay! Although I saw
the timings were the same (but I use others as suggested
through a link on here somewhere) the voltage was 2,2,
and not 2,1 as my others.
Anyway, I upped the voltage to 2,2 .. and it all works
well so far! Except, when I tried FSB 210 x 18 ..
BSOD! So, I guess I leave it at FSB 200 x 18
200Mhz more only, but whatever, the memory should
compensate now that there is more of it!

Gonna test run it in games now, any suggestions tho?
And right, Nvidia tool asked if I wanted the setup to start
with the settings I put, I said yes.
Now it does not, and does not ask me if I want them at
startup, how do I fix this? N/M, I found it, but had to delete
the default ones even if left unchecked, didn't say anywhere
just press on it and press delete Happy now!

Thanks a lot for all the help mates :*

and adding the 3Dmark 06, I dunno, doesn't show right stuff but
seems good enough

Everto you will mostlikely run into stability issues when trying to run 4 populated ram slots at any thing higher than 1020MHz. I'm not saying it can't be done but for the most part you will struggle w/a lot of BSOD's and random freezes or reboots.

Good Luck.

However the system now keeps crashing to the blue dump screen, are there any other settings I need to change as well that would stop this happening?

Good one to tuck away.

If two sticks can run at 1066 but 4 can't, that might be a sign of noise problems on the board. I don't think this is that big a deal though in an OC situation since things are being changed in multiple places. Speeding up the FSB is by far a more interesting boost.

My RAM never allowed me to get past around 880 with all slots populated, but you already know the story about my cheap corsair ram which isn't anything to write home about.
