Foxy@OC'D, have you attempted to run any stability testing?

I wasnt aiming for it to be stable was just seeing how high I could boot into windows

4.223Ghz

Highest I can get into windows with atm, but hopefully with a bit more fiddling I could probs get a little bit more

@ thInk3r

i havent run prime95/occt, but my friend ran prime95 and it made the computer freeze. There was no errors but the freeze. I've been watching my computer, it havent freezed randomly, ive notice that it freezes only when extracting a file, copying and pasting (Gbs). I also ran crysis, everything at high and it didnt freeze.

Btw, i havent done the mem timing/voltage/speed cause i havent been able to find what are the correct settings for my Bios/computer

thanks alot!

Tried running cinebench multi on my B50 and scored around 15,000 at 3.5. Anything above 3.5 BSOD'd; however, runs my desktop fine at 3.7.

Oh well, I'm keepin it at 3.7 .

UPDATE:

Ok, this is weird.

Since I unlocked the extra cores, everytime I try to play a game, the screen freezes up after about a minute and then shows some crazy refresh rate like 64 hz x 128 hz.

Huh? Anyone have any idea whats going on?

Betucha, if your buddies memtest86 diagnostic locked up during testing then either the memory is failing/faulty or he needs to make the appropriate changes in his bios (ie. sub-timings, voltage, divider ect). Not running the correct timings, voltages ect can lead to some issues. What is the model number on your memory? I'll look it up and let you know what needs to be entered in your bios. I apologize if you already mentioned this.

If you can please also add your computer specifications to your signature. This will let everyone know what type of hardware you're running. It makes troubleshooting a little easier for us: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem.

Mitchellvii, does this particular issue only occur when the processor is overclocked? As mentioned above could you also please add in your computer specifications to your signature: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem.

Good luck guys

Thanks for the advice think3r. I think I confused people when I mentioned the motherboard cpu temp, all I meant was the cpu temp that the bios reports, not the motherboard chipset

Anyway I tried using a box fan and it helped lower the temps a few degrees so I tried oc'ing the cpu again and got back up to 3.7ghz at 1.4v running stable for several hours. I decided I wanted to make sure it was really stable so I planned to let prime95 run for 24 hours, I thought I was in the clear until a BSOD around the 21 hour mark I really think it's a temp problem. I started the test in the evening, ran overnight and next morning and the load temp was maxed at 53c (avg 49c) until the afternoon when it went up to 56c max (avg 54c) for a couple hours then the BSOD. The room temp went up in the afternoon from about 74F to 78F so even with the box fan it seems it couldn't keep it cool enough. I know 56c isn't too dangerously high but it would seem my cpu or something doesn't like it

I decided to see if I could cause the BSOD by getting the cpu up to 56c as quickly as I could so I tried running prime95 again this time with the large test, the one that says it uses the most power and heat (sorry I forget the name), and I turned the box fan off and watched the cpu temp and after about 45mins the temp was starting to stay around 55c and 57c and about 20mins later I got the BSOD.

Any ideas on what I should do? Is it a temp problem? Is it the cpu? Sorry to be such a bother

First time overclocker here. I wasn't expecting too much from my 100$ CPU but I seem to have managed to get a quad core at 3.6GHz on air.

I've been trying to get 3.7 by using a 18.5 multiplier and increasing the voltage, but I couldn't seem to get it to be stable.

I feel like my system is at a higher voltage than most, any thoughts?
