So I ordered the Cooler Master whatever V8. I did Prime95 on that overclock and my cpu reached 80C. Also I was losing complete objects like people and cars in GTA IV. So Now I'm back at stock. Its running great without an OC. So My guess is that when I change BCLK and the motherboard compensates by doing something to my memory settings. And doing something bad. theres just so many options there needs a precise guide for achieving different Overclocks. EVGA did it can someone at Overclock.net do it lol. Not being pushy but Ya i know 3.2mhz is low. You can laugh all you want but the fact is I own an i7 haha. But 4.0mhz is almost double. Wouldn't I risk my chip and motherboard. Isn't it bad on the chip to do more than its norm>?
If the CPU is stable with the latest 25.7 version of Prime95 on all 8 threads, I seriously doubt that your loss of graphical components in GTA IV is being caused by your overclock.

Also, a better cooler will be better for a higher overclock, but other than reducing temps, it won't make anything faster by itself.

Make sure your QPI is not any faster than 8000 GT/s, and the uncore has to be at least 2x the speed of your DRAM. Once you set the 160 bclock, set your DRAM speed to the highest speed that is within its rated specs. I don't know why your system got slower... thats weird.

Also I am shocked at how many unhelpful and outright rude posts there are in this thread...

Not possible.


With a quad even runing 1mhz you will still have 4 cores 4x1= 4mhz

I usualy push 4.4ghz with water.
Wait... Did you just say that 4 cores = 4 x speed of one core?

If that is how it works, then I have a 15.2ghz processor woot!

(I hope you had some sarcasm in your post...)

OK good, you had me scared there. Sometimes sarcasm comes off very light on the internet .

Oh, and your CPU speed in your sig rig is 3.2ghz.... 3.2 x 4 = 12.8ghz

hey we have almost the same computer. my ram is corsair 6gb xms3. thats all i really know about my ram.

Can you tell me how many GIGAHERTZ you have?
And what settings you have changed to achieve your X GigaHertz lol all this giga...hurts
