Want to go higher than 4.1GHZ (need help) - Page 2

post #11 of 18
the vtt voltages seem to be making a diffrence to an overclock, any idea what they do? not the cpu vtt thiers another one below the north and south bridge?!

Its the motherboard. I have the same issue. Chip can easily take 4.5 im sure, but the board stops me at 4.1. Some people have had sucess using extremely high FSBs like 500+ so try that, but at that point it might be the chip stopping you and not the motherboard. Best bet is to isolate the board by locking in the ram at a certain speed, and lowering the multi of the CPU and cranking the FSB. This will push ONLY the board, and if it doesnt post, you know why. If it does post at say 500 or 550 fsb then you know that its a board hole and you got past it.. at that point you would raise the multi until you get near where you want to be, then tweak the fsb.

P.S.

My 780i wanted all voltages except CPU on auto.. if I touched anything else it borked...

Try lowering the multi, and then increasing your FSB, just to see if your board will handle that amount of FSB. If it still doesn't work, then I guess you're stuck my friend. I have a similar problem where if I try to boot at 4.2GHz (500 fsb) the board craps out and i get no beep.

tryed that, stil didnt post, i no my cpu is capable of more, and i havnt gone over 800mhz with me ram so i duno.. i need to know which voltages to put up for my board to run happy on i guess, mayb the same for you guys too

One of the things i noticed on my 975x chipset, was that it could strap a cpu as 1066 or 1333 FSB even thought it was only 800, which allowed me to get better overclocks, is it possible to do that with asus boards? rather than just forcing the cpus overclock while it slowly rises...
that straping technique more stable than this..

well Guys, i finally got my board stable at 3.47ghz from 2.5 ghz, although i havnt really pushed it anymore higher, getin wayy to tired,the voltages i pushed up was the
cpu vtt, to just under my cpus voltage,
my north bridge at 1.46,
GTLVREF vtt is at 0.644
and the NB br04 was at 1.25v.
when i come back to this pc agen i shall filter out which ones arnt needed, but for now i need a break from this pc, had this board 6 hours and im already feeling fustrated with it, but slowly but surly i shall get thier, and i will leave information on it so the guy whos stuck at 4.1 ghz can give it another try

Thanks guys for the help but no matter how much or little voltage I give it It won't break 4.16GHZ
How much voltage have you tried?

#1 it's not really practical to run above 4.0Ghz 24/7 as the voltages start getting pretty high to reach anything over 4.2Ghz on most E8400 chips.

#2 if your just trying to run some benches at above 4.1Ghz then throw some volts at it. 1.4-1.45v in many cases just won't do it.

I did some Super Pi runs yesterday at 4.6Ghz on air and it took 1.52v.

You have a WC setup so your temps should stay within a good range to run some benches.
