It could very well be the perfect game stable overclock....yet it might now
Okay, thanks.

That's a great deal. I love that CPU. Anyone in the market for an AMD should jump on this if they can!

You don't have to hit the power button, but it's just one of those things that's not going to hurt, and makes sure the board has no power in it, which will block a clear cmos attempt.

Load whatever settings you need. For instance, I run a RAID 0, so if I clr cmos, I have to reset the controller to raid, I like to disable the splash screen, etc...

Just returned my C2 to MicroCenter and bought the C3 off Newegg ($197). Unfortunately, MicroCenter wasn't so sure they were going to have them anytime soon, so the guy suggested I just return it and buy it where I can get it.

I ended up saving a total of $30 with this 'exchange'. Hope I get a good number on the chip, that's my big worry. I can cherry pick my chips at MicroCenter, but have to trust the "luck 'o' the draw" with Newegg.

Hopefully my system, which has been dismantled for a week and unusable for over 2, will be done once this chip shows up. Guess it's a good thing I have a laptop.

EDIT: Sorry, I should be combining these posts. How do you put multiple quotes in one post? Nevermind, I think I just figured it out.

should be good we basically have the same system..you saw what i went from. 3.6Ghz to 4Ghz.
Side note how does your raid 0 respond to stress testing like windows crashes and stuff because i was thinking for cyber monday id get 2 500gig F3 spinpoints and raid them.
post #2227 of 9641
Soo in my quest to get 4.2Ghz stable i failed..i was up to 1.58v and i kept getting hyper transport sync errors after about 15min. Do we know of anyway to stabilize this. I know this error is very broad and it could relate to many different things related to the CPU or board but are there any tricks like rasing the HT and voltage or running slower memory or okaying with the CPU-PLL. Can we brainstorm and maybe get a good FAQ going at the beginning of the thread to fix erorrs when overclocking?

That would be a great idea! :

You might try bumping the HT voltage to say 1.3 and see if that helps.

OK so FAQ's:
Memory clearance
NB temps
How to flash(new guides )

Anything else you guys can think of that we have the answers to ATM?

Never noticed any issue with the RAID and crashes. Been running a stripe for 1-1/2 years.

As to the RAID 0, forget spindle HDD's, one SSD will blow away two spindles in a RAID 0. That's really yesterdays tech now. The difference from two 150 GB Raptor X's striped to the two SSD's, is unbelievable, almost literally!

I have the two Raptor X's (with the clear tops and over three years factory warranty left on them) to sell if you do want to stay with spindle drives, and they're in the retail box with all packing, including the satin pouch. But, in all fairness, I gotta recommend SSD's, even if it's only one.

Big drawback is cost, about $3 to $5 per GB, give or take. Someone could own my two Raptors, at 300GB total, for $175, big cost difference.

Try adding in some SB volts, that may help some with the HT Sync Flood errors. Try 1.25v and you can go to 1.3v if needed. Maybe some HT Link volts too, but never tried that, so have no opinion on it's effectiveness.

I always run it (SB) at 1.25v, mainly because of the number of drives I have, but it seems to like it anyway (don't ask what 'seems to like it' means! ).

How about something about memory speeds/timings and CPU/IMC limitations? Everyone seems to ask about memory at one time or another when clocking the 955's and 965's (which there are probably a lot of on this board).

So right when I boot up the first time I can restore my overclocks? Or should I proceed to my OS with the fail safe defaults first, then reboot and restore my OCs?
Sorry for all the questions I just wanna make sure I get this right.
