Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 231

post #2301 of 2829
Hello everyone

Sorry i haven't been on as much...Met a new Woman fell in Love and have been flying high ever since

Any how here's a Pic of my new combination i am working on:



The thing that is holding me back is the Ram my mushkins just wont do this....Cpu is stable but the ram will not go even a little bit faster lol...So it negates the purpose of the High CPU Frequency ...for now lol.

I had ordered a new set of OCZ LV sticks but 1 was dead on arrival so I need to RMA them.

I can say it was a bear to hit 300, but the performance it does bring on my Board is outstanding.

I will update once the new sticks come back.

Hi thlnk3r,
Thanks for letting me know that. Some cases are better designed (after lots of airflow study) and some are just experimental like NZXT Beta. I have almost completed the mods to my case and when ready, I shall post some pics and longterm Prime95 temps in closed chassis.
I shouldn't have started the airflow discussion in this thread. Didn't realize that it is OC thread. So, watch out for the next post with pics in AMD CPU forum in couple of days.
Regards.

Robbo2, just to clarify when you mention "NB Voltage" are you referring to the voltage for your chipset or the "NB Frequency" voltage (on the cpu)?

XxBeNigNxX, great job on the 3.9Ghz OC. Wow that NB Frequency is pretty high

Nisean, no worries buddy. If you start a new thread about the topic make sure to link us in here just in case we miss it.

Good luck guys

Then boot into windows and open up AOD. That will tell you your stock voltages.
Overdrive doesn't work with a 780a chipset It's the northbridge to cpu link voltage that I have at 1.4

I had some weird things going on today. Was playing Anno 1404 and the game crashed big time, getting BSOD's all over the place. Put it back to default values and was surfing a bit, boom! another BSOD.
Then I couldn't even boot the pc I cleared the CMOS and kept the settings to default. That was 10min ago, haven't had a BSOD ever since.

That was kinda weird! Temps were not an issue (I'm on water), so I have no idea what it could have been. Maybe the RAM?

XenoMopH, possibly yes. I'd bust out Memtest86+ and run a few passes. I prefer tests 5 and 8. Were games the only thing causing the bsod's or was it pretty much random? Check the Event Viewer(Start->Run "eventvwr.msc" [Enter]) as well and to see if any error messages were logged.
If the memory checks out fine then I'd also run a diagnostic on the drives. Since you have Seagate drives then you'll have to download the Seagate Seatools. Burn them to a bootable CD and make sure to run the full surface scan.

Let us know

Good luck
