mine arrives tomorrow too!!
still on my mobo in my sig, though, so no unlock test for me til i can remedy this. plan to wait a spell, as it makes most sense to me to wait until i can afford to throw on a couple sticks o' ddr3 and go for the full upgrade.

but even on this fecal board, i expect an easy 3.6ghz. and i mean eeeeaaasssy...keep her nice and cherry until that new board and memory arrive.

Contagion, that really depends what you're currently at now. Can you post a cpu-z screen shot of your most recent stable overclock? Perhaps you're exceeding the factory 533Mhz memory speed? That can cause stability issues. Have you found the limits of your memory yet to see what it's capable of?

Odin673, great job

I consider that Vcore pretty low for 3925Mhz. How many hours of stability testing did you do?

Good luck

Only 30 min or so. I'm pushing for 4 and then going to run a long stability test. Right now I'm at 3940, and had to bump up the voltage to 1.47. Hopefully I can get to 4 GHz without exceeding 1.5 V

Odin673, I hope so buddy. That Vcore is already quite impressive. Were you able to go lower than 1.47 volts at 3900Mhz?

Good luck

No, 1.47 was the lowest I got it to. Got to 3940 where I sort of hit a wall. Temps were a bit high imo (closing in on 50 Celcius at load). I think I'll wait till I get real thermal paste to try for 4 GHz. What kind of NB freq, CPU-NB volts and NB volts are people generally using in the 4 GHz range? I couldn't get my NB freq past 2.5ish.

Odin673, I believe the stock voltage for your NB Frequency should be 1.2 volts. Try giving it a small bump from that to see if it provides more stability.

EDIT: I did't know you were running DDR3 1066 memory. In that case you are wayyyy over the stock frequency (533Mhz). Currently you are 671Mhz (138Mhz overclock). That might be your issue actually. You may also be at the limit of the processor as well

Good luck

well right now im at 3.9. i attached pics of cpu and ram and nb.
it isnt completely stable right now, but i think most of that is my ram not keeping up with it. do you think my ram at 1066 with 6-6-6-18 timings at 2.1v would work better than my current?
also, i dont really want to "push" my ram for limits. ram is delicate and i dont want to overvolt it. thnx
btw i have no idea waht my temps are. but i assume it around 43 ish. i put another 120mm on my mugen in a push pull and i also modded an 80mm fan than hangs off my 5" drive bays and pulls air directly from my room onto the intake 120mm for my mugen. (my case door is off)

I dropped my memory multi right when I tried to go past 3.925 so I don't think it was the memory. I usually run those timings at 1333 so it wasn't too far out of spec. I may be at the limit. Will know for sure in a week when I get the good stuff. BTW, in my bios the NB volts were at 1.1 stock. I raised it to 1.26 but didn't go further because I wasn't sure what the normal numbers for it were.

Contagion, looser sub-timings may yield a more stable overclock with your processor but there's really no way of knowing that until you try it. What is the exact model number of your memory?

The reason why we attempt to find the limits of each component (processor, motherboard and memory) is for a baseline overclock. It's one of the best strategies to use when you approach this type of hobby. Why jump right into overclocking the memory and the processor when you're not even sure what the memory is capable of? It's nice to know what the memory can do in terms of high frequency and tight sub-timings. If you're not to comfortable with raising the VDimm then don't do it but that shouldn't stop you from still testing the memory

Good luck
