Also I would like to at least let you know my Bios settings.

1. I am not sure if I should have my DCT Unganged mode on Always or Auto for more stability. I have ram in slot 1 and 3. 4gb Mushkin as stated above.
it is currently on Always

Operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64

C&Q on disabled

C1e Disabled

Ai Manual

CPU bus Frequency 260
PCIe Freq 107

CPU raitio x14

CPU/NB Freq 2080mzh

CPU voltage 1.425v

CPU/NB Voltage 1.300v

CPU VDDA Volts Auto

HT LINK 2080

HT Link Width Auto

HT voltage 1.24

Dram Frequency 1387Mhz

Dram Voltage 1.60v

NB voltage 1.10

NB 1.8 Auto

SB voltage Auto

PCIE spread spectrum Disabled

Ram timings on auto with reading of Cas 8 in CPUz

I can get into windows with good temps. HW Monitor says 27c On almost all cores.

CPUz reads my voltage at 1.125v So it makes no sense to me because
HW reads it as 1.44v

So which is right and what gives with this? Which program to use? Bios says Temp is 33 or 34

Thanks


Update....

Bus Frequency 265

HT link 2120

Ram is around 1400 but Im not in the bios now to read it and 06 marks is running and on the fireflies test it is doing the crazy color thing again. I dont know if this is the card doing this or is it the overclock!!! I have owned many of these Diamond versions of the 5770s and never had one do this before. I am thinking about putting my GTX480 in and seeing if it will stop.
Here we go.... Will update.

UHG I have a million questions!!
What is the best suited Southbridge voltage? 1.20 or 1.35? you only get two choices in this board

my thought right now is get a test to test your cpu and get one to test your GPU... run Furmark or similar for the GPU and then IBT for the CPU and memory.

I am running 3dmark06 to see if there is any stability and I am failing.
I actually tried to just pass the issue by settings
1.5v Vcore

2430 CPUNB freq and HT link

1.3 CPUNB Voltage(wondering what would be considered dangerous)

HT Volts 1.26

DRAM 1440

1.65V Dram

1.2 NB voltage

And it gets into windows and I get an error making me think theres an issue with my card. I got this card for 35 bucks!!!! 5770 GT version open air at Microcenter. I asked if i could purchase the one in the case and it was the last one so they said yes at 10 percent off. Then when walking up to the counter I reminded him that all BYO merchandise was currently 75 percent off the Discounted price. Needless to say he didnt like that too much but I did get it for 35 bucks. Its original price was 179.00

So I think im going to throw my gtx480 in it and see if that does any better.

I want to learn to overclock the AMD CPU is why I built this PC. I built the entire PC for under 350.00
And every peice is new. How that happened is beyond me. I kept running into deals and eventually I had a whole PC.

I would actually like someone, If possible to let me know the limits at what I can set these settings and with that I will work the whole thing out.
thanks

the reason for suggesting IBT is so you can test just the CPU/Memory and take the video card out of the picture....

Fill out this... http://www.overclock.net/specs.php it will help

sanghai2... I am running a pretty plain system and have a 3.6 OC. I can see the catch that you have an ASUS board and I have a Gigabyte. But in CPU-Z: Core Speed 3600 MHz; Multiplier x18.0, Bus Speed 200 MHz; HT Link 2000.0 MHz; Core Voltage is 1.328; NB Frequency 2000. Granted you have a different board, just trying to show I did nothing special, in fact only increased the multiplier. Left the rest as vanilla. PCIe at 100. If it makes a difference I do have the older RB-C2 Revision. Also running my memory DC Mode Unganged and a DRAM Frequency of 800 MHz for a FSB to DRAM ration of 1:4. The memory is set to 9-9-9-24-40-2T so nothing special there. Oh and AOD sucks real bad. Much better off mucking in the BIOS. Good luck!

Great guide, but I believe you have a typo

The next issue you are likely to have when doing this, is either the NB (NorthBridge) or HT (HyperTransport). The NB effects the speed that the ram communicates with the CPU, while the HT deals with how fast the CPU communicates with the rest of the components on the motherboard (it essential replaced the FSB for those of you intel (or pre socket 754 AMD) owners out there). The NB and HT are related, and in fact, you can't set the NB speed any higher than the HT speed.
You have it correctly two posts below in your quote:
Quote:
The HT Link has to be equal or lower than the NB frequency at all times due to the design.

I am a complete noob to all this, but i am trying very hard to grasp the concept of overclocking. I've managed to OC my Phenom II X4 945 95watts c2 from 3.0ghz to 3.6ghz using several guides including yours.

It's managed to pass 1 hour AMD Overdrive stress test, but only 30 min Prime 95 and i get the dreaded blue screen. I've read that blue screen usually indicates ram instability, so i upped the voltage slightly to no avail.

ram voltage: 1.95
cpu voltage: 1.4375

(My system info in my profile)

any advice on how to further stabilize would be very much appreciated. I would also like to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge in this forum. I would not have gotten this far without it

the more you overclock the better you get at it.
