post #951 of 5692
Is there any reason to push my 955BE to 4.0? Will I see in significant performance increase in games or will it be a minimal 2-4fps? because if its gonig to be minimal im gonna call it good at 3.7 because i cant get 3.75 or 3.8 stable no matter what i do.

I've been trying to log different test results at various speeds.
Some of the results are there.

You can see that the jump from 3.6-> 3.7 is pretty negligible.
In fact, the jump to 3.8 didn't add much.
The speed really start increasing when I started pushing HT and NB Frequencies, which meant the other bits of the computer could talk at high speeds too.

I haven't done any testing in a while (just got the Zalman MFC-2 and trying to rig it up without a case-spaghetti nightmare),but you can see that the leap 3.7GHz to 3.8Ghz added about the same as moving from 2300 to 2530 on those two frequencies.
I'm going to fill it out over the weekend.

I'm not expecting people to have the same settings to overclock, but hopefully it should give a bit of guidance as to improvements as various speeds.

That being said, I noticed massive stability gains once I put some decent fans in my rig. I see you've actually got a better cooler than me (, so I'd ask what temps you're running at overclocked.
Once I got down to 50/51 (as opposed to 55/60), I was able to overclock much much harder.

My idle temp at stock is 28, at 3.6 is 33. Load temps at 3.6 are 48 and at 3.7 load temps are 49.

Hahah. Ok. Very well cooled!
I'd say don't beat yourself up too much, then. Play with the NB/HT Frequencies, but another 100-200MHz on the chip alone isn't going to do more than a few FPS.
Have you tried overclocking your graphics card? I'm guessing you maybe bought a pre-OC'd one? You can probably push it a little further, which is likely to see the best gains.
I saw a 10% improvement in 3dmark score when I oc'd my card.

Yea, the cards are factory OCd to 900, they were cheaper than regular cards and i was able to combo deal them. Oh yea, and those temps are without the fans on full, they kick into full speed at 50C so really, Ill never go over 50C

Hello all,

I'm new here. I just built my first computer and am trying this whole overclocking thing for the first time.


Here is what I bought...

Phenom II x4 955

MSI 790FX GD70

ATI HD 4890 Toxic

4GB DDR3 PC3 16000 RAM 2000mhz

Zalman 9900 cooler

Corsair 850TX power


I am having some problems...I really don't know what im doing...

but I'm not new to computers...so there is some hope!


I have over clocked


235Mhz x 4 = 3.76ghz

1566mhz DDR3 RAM 9-9-9-24


HOWEVER....it is running very hot.... 61C at 100% after an hour or so...

This temp reading is from everest. Could it be high?

My thermal couple is reading around 40...but i know that is probably low...


I guess im looking for help to get faster, cooler OC.

Thanks all!

3.8ghz is the sweet spot with, nb and htlink overclocked

Welcome.

I am not sure about that cooler, but that may be the problem with your temps. What type thermal paste are you using?

Im using the thermal grease that came with it.

I have some silver stuff somewhere...but I couldnt find it. (moved recently)

I think im going to reseat the heatsink tonight and search high an low for that silver stuff...


I have heard mixed things about this cooler...idk...

About overclocking...is it very motherboard specific?

I really want to be in the 3.8-4 range. And want my RAM 1600+


What about FSB mhz? Should I keep that at 100 or move it up? Havent found much on this.




Sorry for all the questions...

best,
