Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 176

post #1751 of 4289
Think3r, I can lower the nb freq multiplier to 11 making it 2200mhz. I haven't had a chance to try it yet so I'll get back to you on that. If it does work, I'll then try 2400 and raise the CPU-NB volts to the +.200 you mentioned.

Thanks for your help and time

My 550 is stable at 3.7 at 1.3875v but clocking any higher causes a core to fail no matter how much voltage I give it and no matter what fsb or multiplier I use. Its not a heating issue as max load is only 46c at most but at 3.8-3.9 with 1.475v a core stops after 2 hours of prime95 large fft transfers. Anyone have any idea what the problem is? I am leaning towards the MB itself as its pretty old going over 3 years soon and does not specifically say it supports AM3 CPU.

MB: ASUS M3A

This can limit your processor overclock substantially. Unless you really need 4GB of memory you might want to stick of the faster set. If you're running Windows 7 32-bit then it's definitely not going to let you use all 4GB.

Good luck
Hey thinker, yea I have DDr 2 667 and 800, I have jus started using win7 32 bit, I wasn't aware of the whole 4gig thing with 32bit, whats the deal with that? cause I have noticed it only says that I can use two gig only ?? I ran the AMD Overdrive stability test, gaming and general apps without any errors or BSoD for the past 2 days now, I did guess that my overclock was restiricted due to my crappy DDR 667, so tonight after work I will take out the 667 and see what I can get, altho I'm not looking to push it till I have my new Ramz and cooling.

Cheers

Quick question. Is it normal for 1 core to get ahead of the other core during a Prime 95 test?? Seems like 1 core will finish a test 8-10 sec faster than the other core when I'm running it. This usually happens around 45 minutes into the test.

Dracos9000, 3.7Ghz is still an excellent overclock! What are you other settings (ie. NB Frequency, HT Link speed, Memory ect)? Can you include some CPU-Z screen shots for us please? The cpu and memory tab would be nice.

Vertigo, I have not seen this happen before when I owned my dual-core Opteron 170. I would kind of like to know if this is normal as well

JMT668, everyone's testing methods are different. I typically prefer OCCT for 1 hour at "High". If that passes then I'll go on to using Orthos for about 8 hours. I'll set orthos to "Priority 9" with the "Blend" test. If everything passes with flying colors then I'm settled. To be honest I don't think anything can really be 100% stable but in our minds the testing methods we perform prove to be stable.

Good luck

OK, nb set to 2200mhz at +.150 volts was not stable so I decided to double check the stable settings I had with just the memory and cpu settings changed and the nb at stock. Last time with these same settings I was prime95 stable for about 12 hours but this time after 7 hours I got BSOD so I guess the nb settings were not the problem I guess it's possible I calculated the hours wrong with my original test though I don't know how but whatever happened it is not stable now so any advice on what the problem actually is and how to fix it would be helpful. I think it's probably the memory is not stable at 1600 and 1.7v and auto timings, but I'm not sure what I should change. 1.7v are what's listed on the manufacturers website so I don't know if I should add more volts or if that would even help? Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hi! I'm new around here as you can see!
Recently got my new pc together and it rocks, because it was a jump from basicly athlon 2500+/512mb/fx5600...
I've been overclocking a bit, and cant, for the life of me, get past 4ghz mark, max i got was like 3.94ghz, 202x19.5 and 1.5v. Anything over that doesn't work, raising the voltage even to 1.55v doesnt help, restarts when booting the win.. Tried 20x200 and 19.5x 203-205, nothin. @ 3.94, scythe ninja2 kept the temp like 37C under load, so it's not the cooler, thats causing the problem. Also tried lowering the memory clock to 667mhz, no help there. Have i just hit the cpu's wall? Unlocking also was a unsuccess.. Tried all the bios versions..
Any suggestions are more than welcome!

Mart,
(PS, excuse my english )
