Nah i have worked every way i can at them...raising CPU-NB to compensate or dropping my NB clock to help etc...i may end up dropping down to 3.7Ghz come summer and see where that leaves me on voltage

I still haven't hit 50C since i have been running this voltage

Ok so for the tRFC It was on auto, but I have had it on 90ns and had no problems, I'll up it and see how it works that way.

One last question, why in the advanced dram config in bios are there 2 sets of options for everything? Like tRFC0,1,2, and 3 are listed twice the same as all the other settings. They are all listed in a row then again.
You could leave it on auto if you wanted to. That way you wouldn't even have to worry about it. It's up to you either way.

At the top you should see something called "DCT mode" if that's set to "Both" (And you are in "Unganged mode"), then it gives you the ability to change both channels DCT0 and DCT1 seperately for stability purposes. But for some reason they both stay set to whatever DCT0 is set to. At least in my BIOS. IDK, they used to but that before I switched BIOS. So maybe it's changed but I didn't see that in any of the Changes for this Version of BIOS that I'm running.

EDIT: Have you tied using the CPU PLL Voltage or the ACC to stabilize a frequency without having to raise the voltage?

Hi guys, Chopx again

Quick question, while playing Dragon Age Origins my game will Freeze, but all I have to do is alt tab out, tab back in and it will fix its self.

I turned my PCI-E volts up.. I think they were at 1.1volts

What should I be putting in bios to help the random lock ups?

The overclock program that came with my board says my cpu temp is 41 cpuid says its 37c which one do I believe. and any suggestions on a better cpu cooler besides the crappy zaleman cnps10x extream I have on it

Use Coretemp

ACC hasn't helped...how do i use CPU PLL?

I haven't seen ANY problems stem from the PCI-E voltage and i would be afraid of screwing with it...i wouldn't if i where you

Is anything else giving you trouble?

Have you patched dragon age? is your GPU overheating? what are ALL of your GPU temps?

I would think about a patch or hop on their forums or any Game related ones and probe around for some info. It may not even be Hardware related. If other game srun fine I would consider it to be software. Just a thought.

Typically the higher temp is the CPU surrounding socket temp. (ambients)? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Phyase Lock Loop will add voltage to the Frequency signal to stablize it. I'm not sure that there is a specific formula for it's use or anything. it's more a test and tune type of deal. I found that 2.59v is a good place to start with Freq's below 4ghz. Just move one step at a time and retest. Don't move anything else. Start by moving up one step. Reboot and test. Keep going in either direction until you get the longest prime run and then if all else fails, bump the CPUv one step...

Hope that hepls!

I tried setting the core multiplier to 20 and running just like that, but even though I could load the BIOS, and get to the Windows login screen, after I entered my password and the OS starts to load, it crashes and resets. What's going on?

Well if you just set the core multiplier without offsetting the right voltages for the CPU and whatever else. Its going to crash and if you haven't offset the voltages at all Im surprised your PC made it that far before it crashed.

Unstable OC...my Sempron 140 did something very similar after i unlocked it....i assume it was given to much to think about as the OS started to load

Well, Id be the worst one to talk to about voltages after all its still a new concept to me however, generally what everyone here seems to recommend is to try to step things up one thing at a time. So the first is to see how far your pc will go without any adjustments then you tweak it up to where you want. My processor tends to go to 3.6ghz without any voltage adjustments and it fares quite well.
