My sensors isnt working but I cant find any hot spots on my hk so how bad can it be,hehe. But where is the fsb located? If this is stable im going up to 1.9GHz bus
I figured out that at 3.9GHz the pc will not boot whit 1.25v fsb, raising it to 1.32v made it boot and is running small ffts as we speak. Im using 1.44vcore and will prime smal ffts for some hours,then lower it alittle, but i suspect it actually need around 1.44 to get stable at 3.9Ghz. The cpu fsb on the other hand seems to get along whit only 1.32, and as I understand that is whitin reason.
But is it safe to turn of vdrop? Its in red writing in my bios
If i decide to have it on 3.9Ghz, would you sugest going down on the vcore after about 30min of ffts untill i get an error, then go up alittle again? This is a good way to find lowest possible vcore for the speed?
Edit: Ive moved on to trying to prime, it crashed in under 2 sek. ive lowered the ram speed and raised the cpu fsb to 1.4.( any who know is this just is related to the cpu or do it relates to the ram as well?) Im open for sugestion to how to get higher ram speeds.
At 3.7GHz I can runn them on 18333Mhz and now it get problem whit speed like this,hehe.
Can you explain what fsb:dram is? Does the timings look good enough?
I am corect in thinking that 3.9GHz whit this ram is better than 3.72Ghz whit 1833Mhz? Im only gaming mainly, but apparently my old gtx 460 768mb has more power in store, i actually see improvement for ever Mhz im going up. So im curious of how long that will happen. I thought that i would gain nothing realy, but it actually plays mutch smoother and whit considereble higher fps:-)
Edit. what program do you recomend using for checking cpu performance? a free program witch suits q9550?
weee, this looks promising. I still cant understand the numbers hwmonitor is showing me, because all the heatseanks are not very warm at all. Must be an broken sensor or something. What does hwmonitor mean whit system and cpu 1?Edited by ruarcs30 - 3/22/13 at 9:26am
