Phenom II steppings and max OC 550-940 - Page 265

post #2641 of 2829
Well I've decided to forget about temps and start overclocking, seems like I've got a dud, I just can't get it past 3.6ghz.

Yeah but you're pushing over 1.5volts, I idle at that on stock

I bought a new case, the haf 932 which is meant to be good for airflow, and it's made no difference to cpu temp, my motherbaord is nice and chilly now though

I feel like selling this chip.

I regret selling my 550 now.

maybe a stupid question, but what methods are you trying when overclocking??

have you tried loosining the timings on the memory?

non black edition means pushed reference clock, higher mem speeds. If you increase the mem. speed with your timings at the lowest settings, your memory will take a crap. loosen the timings by raising I.E. from 4-4-4-12, to 5-5-5-18. add a little voltage to the memory and see what happens

have you tried to increase the N/B voltage to stabilize the memory controller?

Maybe drop the N/B multi. by 1 to keep things even

just a few things to try before giving up. don't get me wrong i love my 550, but you may as well keep toying till you can be satisfied with the 940 (for now)

Its my first time, would it also be possible for you to include some CPU-Z screen shots of your current overclock (cpu and memory)? I know I ask this quite often but it's always helpful to see what you're running "settings" wise

Thanks

I've tried varios things.

When overclocking I tend to leave as much at stock as possible so if it craps out it's easier to pinpoint.

I've raised the multi to 18.5, ram is at stock.

I've obviously increased vcore, added some cpu-nb volts.

I've tried different nb freqeuncy multipliers, I've tried below stock, over stock, and stock.

Its my first time, what you have now is still a decent overclock. It's definitely not to be ashamed of. I see that you have 8GB of memory which I'm assuming is a 4x2GB configuration? Try removing two sticks of memory to see if that lets you achieve a higher overclock. This should allow the IMC to breath a little bit better. No need to increase the cpu-nb voltage unless you have plans to overclock the NB Frequency. However sometimes increasing this speed can help with overclocking the processor.

Good luck

well i know that your mem. performance timings are 4-4-4-12, i have the same memory. also, since you have all the memory dimms populated, make sure that the memory configuration is on "enable clock to all dimms".you say your running stock memory speeds. try putting the timings at 5-5-5-18, you have to be sure to set the "DCT" to both or all. this will set the timings for all channels to what you designate. drop the multi. to 17.5 and raise the reference clock to 220. check the mem. speed in cpu-z, if you are over 425, reboot and raise the memory voltage to 2.20. keep trucking man!!
