Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 160

post #1591 of 4289


Here's my OC. I'm SOOOOOO close but the quad just won't hit 4.0 without volts that make me uncomfortable. I'm limiting myself to 1.55v in BIOS which is 1.544 in Windows and 1.536 with VDroop. Actually I've hit 4.0 stable with only a 20-25 test IBT, but wanted to be completely stable and opted for the 100 pass test (4.0 lasted up to about 50ish tests before crashing). I'm running another 100 passes tonight with a higher NB (x13). My load temperature is 51*C during my AC's off cycle and 49*C while it's running.

I had to install XP 32 to get it this far. In XP 64, I couldn't get it stable above 3.8 ghz. I'm also using an MSI beta BIOS, hopefully once an official version comes out, I can can get it higher.

I think I have enough information in the screenshot to be added to the chart? Hopefully you can round up to 4.0 .

Clock speed: 3958
FSB x Multi: 203x19.5
Vcore: 1.55(BIOS) 1.544(Windows) 1.536(VDroop)
RAM speed: 812
NB speed: 2436 (2639 hopefully after tonight)
HT Link: 2000
Motherboard: DKA790GX Platinum
Cooling method: Water

I'm thinking the version of memtest I have is buggy.
Mine is also 1600, but that is only achievable on amd with significant overclocks usually. I would DEFINITELY test your memory with memtest.

Memtest86+ never displays the timings or frequency correctly on most AMD setups.

Most likely your memory will pass memtest at 1600mhz, but it will fail a blend test. Try running blend test for stability.

Slimslider, what about with just two cores? Does Prime95 pass a Blend test with the 3.9Ghz overclock?

Skkhai, great job on the overclock. Good thing you have watercooling...1.55volts is up there

haha yeah, 1.55 is still slightly uncomfortable for me... It's 100 pass stable at 3.9 with 1.505v or 3.8 with 1.465v, which will probably be my 24/7 clocks depending on the OS. At 1.505, temps hit a high for 47 and at 1.465, it hits 44.

And actually, from studying the relationship between CPU and core temps while I had it as a dual, the CPU temp read about 4-7 degrees higher than core, so I'm not sure which to trust.

Oh and btw this is Dopamin3's old chip .

Skkhai, I'd trust the core temperatures. The "cpu temp" from what I understand is at the IHS level which is probably not as important

I'm gonna run a blend test overnight and see how it turns out. Tommorow night I might let memtest run in spite of the timings showing incorrectly. Thanks for the help guys.

It doesn't show it correctly as it appears in bios, but it does seem to test it correctly. It is consistent, and it will definitely let you know if you go too far in the oc of the ram.
