Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 136

post #1351 of 2829
Even if i set my ram in the bios to ddr400, 800mhz effective i don't get a better overclock, if i anything it's worse. i also noticed i can get to 3.85ghz on 1.44vcore, yet the minute i try go over that it suddenly needs like 1.55v. yet i've only ever had it boot into windows at 3.9ghz once and it wasn't stable, i don't think the extra heat is worth it. i might just leave it at 3816mhz, as it sits cold at 29c. and it's OCCT stable

In regards to your 4Ghz OC, one can only go so far until the limit of the processor has been reached. Your 3.8Ghz OC is still a great accomplishment. Even if others are able to get 4Ghz stable, that doesn't mean you'll be able to get the same thing. Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to overclocking.



Supernova, very nicely done. What kind of stability tests have you done so far? How much Vcore are you running?

Good luck guys
yup i know that but its frustrating when i see bad results after hours of tweaking gone on mid air.. one more thing whats the best OCing OS you can recommend..arrggg..:swearing:

so far the top OC i can get is still 3.977Ghz..my 4Ghz attempts were all futile..

@honda
arrrgghhh..i will do my best to tweak this one out... though attempts so far remain futile..

Megamatt, have you tried a lower divider so that you're not running at 1:1? The reason I ask is because when the reference clock speed is increased the memory frequency speed will also goes up.

Kairi_zeroblade, I haven't tried overclocking on another operating system so I can't really give you a definite answer on that. I personally still use XP 32-bit. Why fix it if isn't broken

Good luck

Just bought a PII 940 Black and a OCZ Vendetta II. So far it is working out well, relatively low temps, but I think I might re-mount the cooler to make sure the thermal paste is applied correctly.

At the moment I've got:
240MHz ref clock
x 15 = 3600MHz at 1.41Vcore (53C Linpack load)
NB 2160MHz

I'm waiting on MSI to release a good BIOS, currently I'm using the latest beta of their upcoming 1.7 release and I'm having some issues:
-memory timings aren't represented correctly in BIOS 4-5-4-11-24 shows up as 4-5-4-13-24 in BIOS
-Vcore can't be set in the BIOS and I must set it using AMD Overdrive.
-Probably more issues that I'm not noticing.

Hopefully they release a new BIOS soon because I would really like to push this thing.

4.0GHz doesn't seem to be stable much really, I had it stable for about an hour or so and everything started closing and boom system crash. I'll try to up my Vcore but I can't do it in my bios for some reason, I guess there is no option, I'll try on AMD Overdrive.

Supernova7, for the Asus M3A78-EM the voltage menu is under Advanced->JumperFree Configuration. Look for "Processor Voltage". This is located in your manual on page 73 (Section 2-21).

Hope that helps

xXkeyboardkowboyXx, you may want to double check with XenoMopH but I believe this thread is for "Phenom II" processors. Since the 800 series falls under that category I don't see it being a problem.

Good luck

I would like to think that he would include these, but haven't seen any added to the database. And was thinking of making another Database that includes these, but didn't want to steal any thunder.
