AMD Phenom II X3 700 Series OC Club - Page 586

post #5851 of 6432
hello all, anyone have any suggestions as to why I can't get past 3.2 Ghz stable on my 720? I realize all CPUs / mobos are different but I have tried as many possible configurations/settings as I can think of and after doing so much reading about many people reaching a higher overclock than myself without even increasing the stock voltage, I'm getting a little upset...not that Im unhappy with 3.2, but at 1.3875 volts I was hoping for at least 3.3-3.4. anyone with same mobo as me that has any suggestions on BIOS settings?

Hmm.. That is quite a low clock for that voltage. Mine got 3.5 on stock volts heh.

What happens when you try 3.4 at 1.35v? Does it BSOD or just produce an error in Prime95/LinX/IBT?

I cant even get past the load screen for Win7 it just restarts, Ive logged into windows and started Prime @ 3.2Ghz with 1.35v but it immediately restarted

@ vigorstrive

CPU cannot unlock, Ive tried to no avail. Currently I only have the multiplier increased. As I said before I have tried many different combinations of settings including ram timings and speeds, FSB increases as well as NB frequencies and voltages and nothing seems to have much effect. Currently my RAM is at 1333Mhz with 6-6-6-16 1T timings @1.8 volts ( seems high for DDR3 but any lower and system is unstable )

just thought of something and wondering if anyone can confirm. Im not sure if this is specific to my motherboard but I remember reading that for the best overclock on a CPU its best to seat the RAM in the DIMMs furthest from the CPU despite what ASUS recommends which is to seat the RAM in the slots closest to the CPU (which is my current set up, only reason i havent switched slots is because my CPU heatsink overhangs the ram making the sticks a pain to get out ) Anyone have any thoughts on what kind of an effect this would have on an overclock?

I've heard that, too. I've never tried it though. lol
If you are overclocking with a multiplier, then your RAM is out of the equation assuming it is stable. You should set your RAM exact stock settings. Set your HT to 2200, this will also raise your NB speed, so you may need to raise your voltage a little on both. Neither should take more than .1 voltage increase to get stable at that speed.
Here's a great guide to help you out.
Good Luck!
