If I may ask, why are you overclocking your system using the HTbus (aka RefClock)? Where you can use the Clock MP to OC? That's why the 940 is a BE...it has an unlocked MP . This way you can OC without OCing your RAM.



Could you say that again WITHOUT all those acronyms?... You did that on purpose didn't you?
lol

I am using the ref Clock to OC because i read somewhere that you get better performance out off a higher ref clock and lower MP then with a high MP and lower Ref.... I think i read that in one of the overclocking guides

Either way i can't seem to break 3.6 using 1.45v... Don't want to go higher since i ;ive in a tropical country where outside isnt 10C like HondaGuy lol (its more like 30.... -_-)

vcore at 1.46

NB speed was around 2.3ghz

it was only stable enough to get a validation link

Yeah, I did that on purpose

Well, it doesn't increase your performance enormously.... The benefit of having a BE is that you don't have to OC your memory too to have a higher cpu speed. Cuz when u raise your Ref.Bus you raise everything connected to it. Like NB-Speed, HT-Link-Speed and Memory Speed, plus there is much more stress on ur chipset which can make your system unstable.

By using the CPU Multiplier you are able to oc ur cpu only... This way you could get a higher oc

Hmm fair enough, but i Can't get it past 3.6 @ 1.45v using the stock ref clock Any other voltages is should raise to get it to 4.0?

You could try 1.48 for 3.7. That works for me. or 1.52 for 3.8...

Has anybody tried undervolting and overclocking yet? i think that this may actually get somewhere since these things like cold more than voltage. Just a thought.

I did a little.
I got 4300 @ 1.456v, 4590 @1.53v, and 4663 @ 1.568v on h2o.

I'll be doing some more h2o runs today to see what lower volts can pull.
