quick question, wat is the max NB voltage i should go? i am going to find the max nb before i overclock my cpu and dont want to push nb too far. on air cooling

For me, I found 2880MHz to be max. Even then, it required so many increases in voltage on the cpu-NB that I just run it at 2640MHz instead for 24/7

ok i will aim for 2600 nb.
wat about ht link? wat could i expect to see on an overclock for that? and is there much of a point to overclock it, i read that it doesnt really increase overall speed much..

btw im using the gigabyte ma790fxt-ud5p

I'm having problems when I overclock...

I can't tell if it is my CPU or RAM that is giving my problems. I think it is my CPU, but just wanted to get some thoughts from you guys.

I have 9-9-9-24 2v RAM.

I have the NB at 1.25V RAM at 2v @ 1533-1600mhz

The CPU is at 3.795 mhz 1.4V

When I run prime 95 after about a min it cuts off. It looks like the screen goes fuzzy for a split second and then it either goes to bluescreen or just shuts down.

I thought bluescreen was RAM but I dont think it is my ram that is giving me problems...

Any thoughts?

What should my voltage be for a 3.8mhz if my FSB is at 200? I have read some newbie stuff. Is there any good reading material for voltage settings?

Lets get back to grass roots overclocking.......screw the overpriced memory.....after all the point of overclocking for me is getting the most performance as possible without breaking the bank.......Overclocking lesser hardware and making it shine is what got me where I am today....

$50 set of OCZ golds......something most users can afford....... is .020 secs worth an extra $100? To me its not and had I been able to get NB to cooperate these would have beat them.

I understand...

I didn't know as much as I do now when I bought...I definitely wasted some money in places but overall i'm very pleased.

So i need to work with what I got...

I read your write up on xtremesystems, it helped a lot. I want to get 3.8 stable...that is all im shooting for.

I am at 3.68 now... I think it is really just a voltage issue. This is my first OC and im learning a lot.

Im just nervous about bricking this computer. Dont have the cash for another...

If i get a blue screen is it 100% always RAM issue?

What voltage are you at 3.6GHz? There are so many awkward things with voltage on these Phenom II's, today I've been tweaking my overclock a lot, and found that I can get 3.68GHz stable with an undervolt much easier than trying to add voltage. Also, try various configurations of ACC, ACC on auto at 3.8GHz helps to stablize my cpu, then at 4GHz I need to disable it to gain stability. It's weird, but AMD hasen't said much about what ACC really does so it makes it difficult for everyone else.

I tried a bunch of settings.

1.4v - 1.5v

1.4v primarily at 3.68 (230 x 16)
