Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 17

post #161 of 2829
I'dd like to go furthur but my mobo won't alow any more volts.....
3.8 is nice though.

Gonna downclock now.
3.6 on 1.425v is nice 2.
Gonna leave my G.cards the way they are though.
they don't get above 54c!! gotta love those 260's

Is raising the NB VID important? Cause at 3.7 I just got with the vcore I am wondering if I need to get the VID up more.
I hit a small wall at 3.6ghz that was easy to get past (took like an hour, maybe two) but 3.7ghz was quite a *****, and slightly more difficult than 3.8ghz (I gave up about 3/4 of the way though, and just caved in and raised my vcore).

I have taken it all the way to 1.6v and no stability..
Glad to hear you got to boot at higher cores, but bl on the stability I need to play around a bit with my oc first but I'll check back in to see if I can help.

Safe temps, they could be a bit higher and still be acceptable! Nice OC man, and the deneb at that speed will be smoking. Once you get better cooling, I reckon you'll own it up

I'm in the process of doing all the updates... started at the beginning to get the extra HTT info, just got to this post... so about 6-7 pages left, then it'll get the update. THEN I get to hook up and external drive and save a bunch of stuff off this system and start disassembling... then start building the new one. Don't think it will be operational until tomorrow, based on available time, leak testing, OS install, etc. Plus I have to move some stuff around in the apartment... the ex is (finally) moving out this weekend, so my office that turned into a very cramped office/bedroom will now just be a bedroom, and the "office" will go out into the living room, which includes the computers. Its amazing what is deemed acceptable in a living room by either men or women... my new roommate, one of my best friends, is all about having three computers (one is a server) in the living room with the XBOX and all that jazz (this shouldn't surprise), but the ex would have had a heart attack if I asked to do something like that. Don't be surprised if I give her a boot in the butt on the way out

Anyway, bare with me the next couple days... updates will be fewer, with possible long gaps, but they will come. So keep posting updates! And nice work Drin!
Thanks, unfortunately it was not OCCT stable! Then again I knew it would not be, but I wanted to see if it was usable which it was And thanks for updating the list dude! When you get some spare time you should get some oc'ing done, and update the list whenever you get tired/are benching. We can do a few days without updating I think, although it is appreciated!

@ PatrickVanHelden: You showed some screenies back a couple pages (#125) and when you were at 16.5x 223 you RAM was almost at 600MHz (DDR2-1200)... now I know you have DDR2-1150 sticks, but maybe they just can't do 1200... or maybe you need to raise CAS to 6 in order to get there.

@ pun3D: please post all your necessary system specs, I wanna get you in the database... throw me a CPU-Z screenie too, with both CPU and memory tabs open. Thanks, and keep up the nice work!

@ karaya: can you post your system specs for me, and I'll add you to the list...?

Almost done updating... except I'm adding OS, so I gotta go back and find what everyone is on... hopefully everyone has it in their sig, and if its 32 or 64-bit...

Is everyone hitting the 3.7 wall at 1.5v for CPU-NB...? Anyone try raising that?
3.7 might be an obstacle for most actually, seems thats a tough barrier to pass without raising the vcore quite a bit. I had to raise my vcore more notches to get from 3.6 -> 3.7ghz then 3.7 -> 3.8ghz. Max I've run with my NB voltage is 1.35, 1.25 is stock for me and you can change almost any voltage in this mobo by +.01 and it wont affect stablity or temps in the slightest. I'm not sure what's a safe ammount, but I will try 1.4.

I assumed that the NB voltage helps only with the NB freq clock, and that in reaching a stable core clock, it only helps if the NB clock is causing the instability? Don't trust me on that one, its only what I assumed and I could be horribly wrong, corrections appreciated.

Anyway, looks like 3.9ghz will be doable today for sure.... 4.0ghz I hope will be attainable on air, that would be nice! Btw, I have legal versions of XP, Vista, Windows 7, all 32 and 64 bit, and I'd like to test for stability in those os' soon. Getting my system stable in vista x64 is most important however, so thats first!

*finally* got WC setup completed, no thanks to the fact I had to buy an extra HS/F and some fishtank tubing to get it working. lol.

And I'll get all the voltages next time I'm in the bios.

Screeny of a 10min prime, just to make sure it was bootable and could play WoW on Hoping to crack 3.8 this weekend now!

hey guys. i think ive noticed something. i dont know about your guys boards. but mine seems to like lower multis and reference clocks rather than high multis and low refence clocks. for example. for me 14x260=3640MHZ is more stable than 17x215=3655MHZ. im also getting better load temps with lower multis as well.

just some food for thought.

Yeah that's a good idea but if i go over 210 on my FSB my voltages default to 1.52 for some reason no matter what i set it in the bios.

A week or so ago, someone gave the same theory, that the PHII's seem to be more stable at high ref clocks and lower multi's.

@ robbo

Is there any software that you might be running in the background, something that loading on boot, overriding the bios? If something's set to auto, it might force a higher voltage when you pass a certain ref clock. Having anything forced to what you don't want is never good

i have the ta790gx3 a2+ which i guess is slightly superior to the board your asking about. its been good to me. its the board i got my tri core 8650 to 3.2 GHZ with. aside from the layout of the sata ports. i have nothing but good things to say about it.


WOOHOO. going on 15 minutes P95 stable @ 3710mhz (14x265) with 1.472V. and im loading so far at 56C. gonna push for 3.8 once im positive what im at now is stable.

P.S
I WILL BREAK 20K in 3dmark 06 with my setup.


EDIT-----------------------
just hit 60C i think im done until i decide to water cool.

The 920 and 940s seem to both be hitting the wall at 3.7 GHz. I would say save a little money and get a 920 unless you plan on doing Water Cooling or better.

I have been sort of playing with the idea of lowering the Mult and trying to get past 3.7 that way. I may get around to it sometime soon.
