I had a friend of mine tell me I should turn down the hyper transport in my bios because that might be an issue.. giving that a shot today.
Jesus thats sad... That means i've been on the computer for 13ish hours...

Nice Work Chops! Congrats! Looks like she just needed some love and bit of "Time" to warm up! OCing is not a overnight process...

It can take a while to get a stable overclock at the speed that one desires! One thing to remember is that it's a bad practice to keep changing settings and not testing them to the fullest before changing again. Adjust one thing at a time, reboot and test for a while. Running Prime95 overnight was a good choice, with good results!

That is one reason why I like OCing with the BUS mhz is that you can work the Speed up gradually. Going up by 200Mhz at a time is asking for Errors and Blue Screens. Once again, JMO. )

Anyway, I have an update on MY MoBo RMA. MSI Just sent me an email with my Confirmation of FedEx shipping via 3 day ground. So good news there. The bad news is that I received an email from Bottom Line technology that they are getting the shipment of C3's (Including mine) on Dec 2nd... BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

That's 1 week later than then "estimated" it coming from AMD originally... Oh Well! It's gonna be worth it!!!

ONe more thing Chops,

Keep the same Multi of 17 and Bump up your BUS from 200mhz to

1. 203Mhz to equal 3.451Mhz and retest using prime95 the same way for a good twelve hours again. (only a 51mhz increase in OC from previously stable OC)

OR

2. 206 to equal 3.502Mhz and do the Same. (100Mhz)

Instead of Jumping up another 200Mhz and getting frustrated. 50 or 100mhz should be a nice stable increase. Then when that Passes...

3. Bump the BUS to 209 x 17multi to equal 3553Mhz and run Prime95 for a good 10-12hours.

4. Then drop the BUS back down to 200 and bump the multi to 18 to equal 3600Mhz and run prime95 for another 10-12hours.

See the pattern? (Of course you do) In my experience, it's more reliable this way...

I bet that starts a good streak of long Stable Prime runs... Once you hit 3600mhz, start back with the small BUS jumps again until you work back up to a 19multi to get 3800mhz.

Keep in mind the rest of the systems stats.

No problem, I thought it was the board, and returned it for my third MSI and the same problems I was having were still there, without change. So, we have concluded it must be the cpu (unless I got a bad board with the exchange!).

I am waiting for MicroCenter to get the C3's to do the exchange. I am currently unstable in o/s at auto settings and speeds with the obvious voltage adjustments. It also instantly (within 4 seconds) fails prime blend on all four cores. If I disable all cores, except core 1 of course, it still fails prime blend instantly.

So, I am assuming it is the chip.

Thanks Mastiff

Im still getting some hard lags in my game. I turned down my SB volts from 1.3 to 1.25 and it helped alot. at 1.3v they were straight up screen freezes then at 1.25 they became lags. No hyper transport sync errors atm, but I have not been alt tabbing in and out of my game this morning(I actually wanted to play for once) So I think I might load it up again and start alt tabbing to see if I can force another hyper transport sync error.

EDIT Should I be putting any volts into the cpu, or just playing with the multiplier and the BUS ?

You bet!

What are the CPU(v) right now?

It really depends. If you have tried over and over to run prime95 and keeps failing, then I would make sure that I have my CPU PLL set to the right (v). Setting the PLL (v) is not going to be something that I can tell you. You have to adjust that according to the stability of the CPU. Not enough PLL will make it unstable as will to much.

If it doesn't stablize with any adjustment that you make in the PLL(v) then keep the PLL where it was originally and bump the CPU (v) a tad and retest. Remember to keep going to back to the PLL to see if it wil help stabilize the Freq at the new CPU(v) before bumping the CPU (v) again, backing the PLL down if it doesn't help.

Hope this helps!

I usually do the same.

Windows 7 was released on what October 22nd? How old can the Drivers be? Plus Windows Update has already released new ATI drivers for the 4800 series. Has anyone tried WU to see if there has been any new release chipset drivers for this board?
Yes it was released on my B-day Oct 22, BUT that was when it was released. In other words how long before that do you think that they finalized the data that was going to be on the OS? You have to remember they have to get everything finalized and approved, then a few hundred made for testing. Then after testing is done they have to produce(make) The OEM discs and then The Retail discs as well as packaging.(figure at least 500,000 copies) That must all be completed and then shipped to the various retail stores and OEM providers and get to them all probably a week before the release date. Plus they have to have time to get their commercials ready and on the air.
So all in all I would be willing to bet that windows 7 was finalized at least 6 months before release If not 9.

Nice! Mine comes back From MSI Friday. But I'm leaving for the weekend! Going up north to my buddies cabin! Gonna do some partying! Maybe some hunting!
But my C3 945 won't be in until the first week of December. So I don't even know if I'm going to screw with anything until then.

Maybe I'll get everything preped and ready to go that way all that I have to do is install the CPU and cooling block and be ready to rock!
