Official Phenom II x2 500 Club! - Page 221

post #2201 of 4289
3816 x18,
212 fsb
2200ht
2331 NB
RAM DDR3 @1698! CAS 8!! 1.7 on the V there I think - I upped it..

Picture Link to CPUZ's times 2
(CPU and RAM), Hardware monitor with voltages used and temps on the GD70). Under water, but I need to clean the Rad and water itself.. (drain).

Still have to change ACC to +2.
And still have to ghetto strap some fans on those NB/SB...I got a crazy heatpipe and 2 blocks - not sure I'd waterblock that...but still need more airflow to cool it down.

I got 2 50mm's I might strap on next run...might try the multi one more time with some more stability tests.

I'll be running BOINC 100 % on 4 cores (got BOINC manager to recognized my freed prisoner cores with a reinstall, GPU apps seem intect whew....)..will be running the 4 cores at 90% for testing all night leaving 10% for all things Vista...

And after this post, I'll run 3 cores and multitask more than my 7 active windowed programs now w ram at 2.4 of 4 GB used....

Still feeling constrained, I know this thing would open up with my other DIMMS filled.

I might go up on NB if you think I can chance it.... is that too cocky? I think I'm volted out...temps are high.

Water change and cleaning water/rad should shave 5C or more there on load.

CPU temp holding steady at 62...which was about my highest on the 940 BE when it was dirty...

Loving this GD70 and Ripjaw! I knew I wasn't crazy to overbuy on the RAM speed (2000)....it works like a CHARM at these lower speeds. Get to tighten up the timing and focus on the CPU...

Question any one have a Megahalem cooler on there 550? If so what bracket did you use? I am thinking of adding one of these, a dark knight or a Monsoon.

Looking to lower my temps and looking for ideas.

Jimsmith, I believe the NB Frequency is increased via multiplier. Perhaps someone with this board can clarify. Try only going up in an increment of one. I've heard that overclocking the NB Frequency can also help with the processor overclock so it's worth a shot. Try also giving your cpu some more voltage. I'm impressed that you were able to get 3.7Ghz stable at 1.36volts. Great job!

Dolk, I'm out of suggestions. It sounds like you may have an actual faulty quad-core processor. Hopefully some other members have some suggestions for you. Sorry I couldn't help. I wish unlocking was always guaranteed.

Gill, your method of stress testing sounds quite strenuous

In regards to the "NB Frequency" I'd keep it where it's at now. Test for stability and see where you stand first. How much cpu-nb voltage are using for 2331Mhz?

Turtlewrench, I believe this is the bracket you're looking for: http://www.heatsinkfactory.com/proli...ntion-kit.html.

Hope that helps.

Good luck guys

OK I been retesting my temps, cause I worry. I used prime 95 for the 1st time tonight. Usually I have used OCCT. I did a blend test every thing was going good, till 8 minutes in on worker #3. I got this message: fatal error: final result was EA107F56, expected 33BB2689. The other 3 workers passed the 1024k self test. At this time my temp were 58 to 59C.

So this makes me ask two questions:

Is that an ok temp range?

What the heck does that message mean?

Oh the temp in the room was 22.1C


Started running the max temp test in prime 95. after two minutes I got this error on worker #2:
FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.4921875, expected less than 0.4
Hardware failure detected

Never failed in other programs b4. What could correct his, more Volts? Temp again where 58C to 59C, never reached 60.

That temp is a bit high, especially for only a few minutes in. I try to keep max temp under 55. My setup now gets to like ~52 in a slightly warmer room.

What voltage are you pumping through that thing?

So this might be the biggest noob thing but i have two questions.
1). my first 550BE phenom 2 i bought somehow died from setting the acc to auto and the other thing to hybrid on my gigabyte 790x ud4p board is that common? and second more important .......2). i just bought the asus crosshair 3 with a new 550 phenom 2 and was wondering if anyone has settings for a minimal clock such as an overclock to 3.5 ghz i could use for now as i learn to overclock so i have somewhere to learn and start from..im new to this buildign and clocking but i wanna learn

Enabling ACC would not kill a chip. If it doesn't post after setting ACC to auto then that just means the locked cores must be defective. Did you try resetting the BIOS?

All chips are different. Find the highest stable clock on stock volts (use OCCT or another program to test stability for a couple hours). Then when you run into instability up the voltage a little. I wouldn't go high than 1.5v Vcore for an air cooled PC.

any one having a problem with a hd5870 ?
at first i thought i had a problem running a multiplier over 18.5 stable. i would get bsod during assassins creed ($5 on steam) but then my second monitor started to mess up
i uninstalled cat 9.1 and went back to driver it shipped with and have bsod 4 times since
guess ill go back to 2x at 3.1 and start over
now im kind of glad i haven't received my copy of windows 7 yet

it's at 1.456v.

Also any body got any ideas why I would have a floating unstable core? Look up above and you will see first test #3 was no good, then #2 was.
