According to my calculations you are running at 3.78Ghz you probably need to up the CPU voltage and to be on the save side up the CPU-NB voltage alil also.
post #1465 of 9641
ah... i was aiming from stock to around 3.6... any suggestions what settings i need to change at all?

to get 3.6 you should need to change the CPU multipler to 18 and up the CPU volts some. Mine is at 1.4v for 3.6Ghz. That should just overclock the CPU not the CPU-NB you should be able to do that if the cooling is ok.

I am officially returning my chip once the c3 steppings come out...I did 8 hours of prime95 solid as a rock then i left the computer idle for about an hour. I copy a movie to my fiancees computer that she wanted to watch and right in the middle of the transfer while the CPU was 33C the screen goes black and windows freezes. I think its my IMC or something ive ran memtest and everything no problems. Its that or Win 7 Pro x64 hates me.

Down towards the bottom the CPU Vid it should say auto not the CPU-VDDC. To change it hit the + or -. All this is in the Cell menu...
