Havent passed 44c on any OC yet , but I can`t seem to get it stable over 4ghz:S

Reverted the ram and all voltages back to stock settings in an
effort to inch my way to results (a bit cowboy testing in the start)

This is my highest "stable" OC (1 hour burn-in) @ stock volt settings.
bios:1301

Nb/cpu: 2000mhz

Attachment 145232


Enabling LLC (load line calibration) won`t let me OC further but
it does not effect the overall stability.

Been experimenting with the NB and cpu/nb volt to no avail.

Upping the FSB 250+ and keeping the same clock settings
did not effect stability @3.9ghz but would not run stable @ 4ghz.

Experimenting with AAC which I have never done before,
setting core 0,1 to -4% and core 3,4 to +4% seemed to increase
performance but did not allow any higher clock speeds so Im leaving
this one off for now. (If anyone can explain in some detail what this
feature does I would be most grateful)


The watercooling I installed last night is doing its job, but I can`t
seem to provide enough "juice" to the CPU without creating instability.

The system boots on 4.3ghz, but won`t boot to desktop on 4.1 and 4.2ghz

And the system reports 0mhz when setting it to 4.2ghz.

Still early on with the OC`ing but I am a bit disappointed with the
prelimenary results even for this 140w tdp chip.

Would be grateful to any tips/hints
erm.... Your running c2 revision which, to my knowledge, ALOT of people had difficulty breaking through the 4gig barrier with any stability. That being said you might want to think about dual booting and putting a 32bit OS on a seperate partition for OC'ing and then migrate everything to the 32 bit if you can get it stable. From what I read the c2 revision had alot of stability issues on 64bit OS when trying to break 4gig.... Prolly due to the amount of stress being put on the IMC.

But I don`t want a 32bit OS (maybe I will succumb and install it tomorrow if I can`t get over 4ghz tonight)


This is starting to get to me

Cant for the life of me get it over 4ghz no matter what:S
I have practically tried everything, it seems as there is a wall at 4ghz.

At 3.9ghz and the FSB@250 it runs smooth as polished donkey on acid,
I can boot it and run 3dmark06 on 3.98ghz , but as soon as I set it to 4ghz it hits the ground running. If it boots to desktop, immidiate crash.

With the 1204 bios I got it to boot to desktop@4.3ghz and crashed hard after a short while.


My test conclusion on the ACC setting = no difference in OC capability.

The only interesting thing was when I set all cores to +12% and ran a couple of cpu tests in 3dmark. The score I got was 5500+ while I get about 5300 with my cpu at the same speed without ACC.

Gonna scour the net like the pirate I am to "unlock" the secrets of this c3

lemme know what you find because i got mine to 3.9 and it did intel burn with 20 runs on max but it still will randomly crash whilst on the internet streaming music... weird i know... and comes back with that 124 or soemthing bsod code. from what i read the 12x code means oc related issue

This is my best result so far, I have given up on 4ghz and windows 7 64bit.
Gonna see what mr prime95 has to say about the OC before I push
the mobo further.

Attachment 145292

The xfire 4850s @ 715/1030 , will up the GPU a bit more... Memory started to artifact on 1050.


Prime overnight then:S I hope

Btw , checked around the net... as u said, pretty much impossible to get it over 4ghz in an 64bit enviroment according to other OC`ers. Stable anyways.

Nice RAM, How many Gigs you got. Mine are 2 x 1GB DDR3 1800, i see yours are 1600. they look beautiful though.

PS for the observant people, this was a pic of my old motherboard

Woot. Just installed my Crosshair this morning but I have to wait until after work to crank it up and see what it can do.

i had mine delivered yesterday and had wait 4 8 pin cable be delivered today to install, god it looks sweet, running the phenom 8650 in ma sig
post #660 of 1767
I'VE BEEN NINJA'D (that even a word?). They gave me a refund and not an exchange like I requested

I guess I'll have to put off that upgrade for now, some stuff has come up and now I need the money more , maybe later or after the Crosshair IV comes out, idk.

So my Prolimatech Megahalems, Panaflow, and AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition (C3) go into "storage" until I can afford to get that motherboard.
