post #831 of 2829
The 1.45v is too high? Also, i was using just two sticks of ram when i first started trying to OC. got the same results.

Hey has the 79-t. You have the 78. With the old Phenomskeeping the NB ans CPU vid at the same was crucial. now it is not. I keep my nb volts around 1.45 max for 2.4ghz NB. My cpu VID is around 1.535. I would start from scratch and put the NB at stock and OC with only two sticks of ram in. Turn the ram to 800mhz and see if you get any different results. 3.5ghz is stable at stock voltages or maybe a small bump.

Patience is something that is needed with the Phenoms but once you hit a high clock the rewards are satisfying.

Emersonsc, did you try running those two sticks of memory in "ganged" mode yet? Have you already try a different frequency other then 1066?

Good luck

is there really a diff in the two? they use the same sb/nb chips and similar lay-out. i even read reviews where it didnt perform as well as others.
