I can boot into windows but it crashes after a while.
I noticed in cpu-z it says cpu core speed is 800.00 instead of 3400 and the multiplier is x4.0 instead of 17 and core voltage is 1.016 instead of 1.4.

any suggestions?
First off turn off C&Q, that is why you are seeing 800MH and 4X multi. That right there may be your problem. C&Q does not play nicely with Overclocking.

800 MHz is the fourth p-state, it's the most energy saving states and indicates your OS is driving Cool'N'Quite very hard. Just disable it for benching, or play around a bit with the energy settings.

So I'm still in the process of compiling the parts to my MSI 790FX-GD70 build. Now all I need to complete it is a new GPU and RAM. For the GPU I'm deciding to go with the 5770 (good price/performance ratio/fits my budget). As for the RAM some guys in this thread recommended me to go with OCZ Platinum and now I'm ultimately deciding between these two sets:

1.9V OCZ Platinum 4GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 OCZ3P16004GK w/ Free OCZ Diesel 4GB Flash Drive ($115.99 + $2.99 Shipping)

1.65V OCZ Platinum 4GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 PC3 12800 OCZ3P1600LV4GK ($122.99 Shipped)

I'm not sure which I should purchase, the 1.9V or 1.65V? Which is better for overclocking? Also considering that the 1.9V is slightly less and comes with a 4GB Flash Drive. Thanks in advance.

1.65 will be better as you can safely raise the voltage. 1.95 is close to needing active cooling.Since the timings are the same go with the 1.65 hands down.

Also, NSpec was talking about this a day or so ago. He was talking about certain combination's of NB volts (there's three different ones that can be adjusted), check back a few posts, or see if he can help out.

MOAR VOLTS!

Gone upto 1.55v i need a way to control the cores individually, any ideas?

I have the 1.9V OCZ Platinums

8GB(4 sticks) running at 1600mhz, 7-7-7-24 timing. rock solid baby

Not overclock.

the low voltage set will leave you more overclocking headroom

Dir D,

Try setting ACC on Core #2 to -2%. what that does is lower the OC by 2% on just that core. so if you can find the max stable on that core (while OCing them all) up your OC on all 4 and then use the ACC on that core to back down the OC on that core to stablize all 4...

Toxic, are OCing anything else in your box?

NCSpec.

Have you tried Max Ram clocks yet? I'm very interested in seeing what she'll do with Max Ram frequencies????/


*****UPDATE*****

Sellling my x 4 810 and just Ordered me a

HDX945WFGMBOX

That's a 945 with 95w and C3 steppings! It's not a BE but this board max BUS Mhz is right at about 321mhz with the "Multistep OC Booster" set to Off.
So with a x15 Mutliplier on this 945, 321 x 15 will be a CPU Clock freq. of 4815Mhz....

And IF I use step 1 I shuld be able to possibly hit 5115Mhz if i need too. Both of those CPU Frequency's are WELL over my goal of a Daily use OC! I'm in it for the Ram frequency's!

I have a 4gb kit of OCZ Watercooled Flex EX 2000Mhz Ram that are beggin to be Ramped Up!!!!!

My 810 is solid BUT I'm hoping that the C3 stepping on this 945(GM) will increase the max Ram Freq. Stability!?

Well i tried a bunch of different things at 3Ghz NB. I upped the HTT voltage and it stablized core 2 but now core 4 errors... I tried all sorts of combinations of the HTT voltage but 1 core is always unstable soooo....i said screw it for tonight and went back down to 2.8Ghz NB.

Grats on the C3 945 i bet it should clock to 4ghz easy and the ram should be solid till 1900 atleast

I picked up some OCZ platinums 1.9 RAM and after i do that two users on this site sell their Animal Platinums :swearing:.
