Trying to push a little more

What voltages should I be looking at for :

CPU-NB at ~2600Mhz?
Nb - ?
SB?

Any other important voltages that need to be increased?

1.65v - @ cas6 with 1.5v @ 1600mhz right now.

Seriously, yes! Why is everyone so serious. The noobs (me included) try to get info, try to be light hearted and fun about this and some of you old timers start kicking us in the nuts! Lighten up Francis and go back to your overclock.

Sorry to everyone else if this post offends anyone, but come on! How are us noobs supposed to learn anything if at first we're shrugged off by some of the more experienced members who feel it's their goal in life to shut us down or make us fell stupid or ashamed of trying to welcome a newcomer. Jeesh! Maybe I'll just stay in my Scout club where everyone is friendly.

Cars... That's for sure... I would have to think about the comparison of fun though....
No, I always boot just fine; even all the way up to 2740. It's just at certain ambient temps, seems to be the upper teens, it freezes up when I get to windows and the startup programs are loading.

As for fun factor, well...... that's all subjective. I used to think cars were the most fun I could have with my clothes on; since I've had kids, however, I don't drive fast anymore. So now overclocking is my new vice.

Nice. Cars are definitely WAY more expensive to play with than computers, that's for sure.

BTW, I'm running a 720 .

He put it all in an Antec skeleton case with 700w power supply, 500 gig hard drive and a DVD burner.
Squinty was amazed when he hit the power button and the thing actually worked. The 1st thing Squinty did was open the bios screen and changed the multiplier from 17 to 18. Squinty downloaded CUPID from the web and looked at the memory frequency, and its 666mh. Squinty seems to think it should read 1333 instead. Is this correct and if so what does Squinty need to do to get the memory frequency to 1333?
Before you scold a cat with the “use the search button” response, Squinty did and didn’t find any help.
Squinty’s main goal in life is to play games on this computer.
Thank you.

CPUz shows what the RAM runs @ SDRAM speeds; but, since it's dual data rate, you need to double what it shows. So technically it would be 1332 MHz.

CPU-NB: 1.4v, NB (if at stock ref clock): auto, SB: auto.

Also be sure that your RAM is set to the appropriate voltage, and you'll most likely need to mess with your timings to get it stable, depending on RAM frequency.




NCspec: Very nice RAM, first CAS5 I've seen on AMD.

If there 1.65v how are you running 1.5 @ CL6? Must be the cold temps huh?


I've hit CL5 @ 1333 before but it just seemed like it took to much volts... granted I have 2000Mhz CL8 Ram Rated @ 2.0-2.05v

And remember, I have the issue with a 13x multiplier. So it's not specific to 14x, unless that has to do with quads.
Well this is why I asked because you implied here that you couldn't "cold boot" (which were talking abuot shutting the PC down and then hitting the power button and not just a simply reboot) using the x13 multi for the CPUNB, like we can't use the x14 multi on the CPUNB to boot up from the off state...

So you can use the x13 multi but it won't boot up from the off state around specific temps? (upper teens) I guess that I just got confused with the two conflicting statements...



TO THOSE GIVING +REPS:

The comment "Seriously, this is what you give +rep for?" made by the OP Originator was a pretty valid question IMO. Being that OCN admins have stated that +reps are to be given for the proper reason (which is usually for helping someone or providing a service to the Forum with Valuable info on any given topic or posting a guide, etc....) and not just because you liked someone's comment or they had a cool avatar....

So please be thoughtful and respectful to the validity of those questioning your motives for giving another member +rep on their threads... And if you "seriously" like what someone wrote, send them a PM.... Thanks!

These are rated 2250mhz cas8 @ 1.65v

Mastiff, I think we're going around in circles misunderstanding each other.

Just so I'm clear on this, you guys can't even POST with the multiplier @ 14x, right? But if you do a hard reset, it boots just fine?

Mine POSTs and boots just fine, just freezes in Windows.

Had a play around and now I'm at :

CPU - 3.6Ghz
CPU-NB - 2.5Ghz
HT Link - 2Ghz
RAM - 1333Mhz @ 6-6-6-20

All stable and fine

Might try to tighten those latencies a little I think, Also read that the ideal CPU-NB speed is 2.6Ghz, Should I push it up to that or is 2.5Ghz fine?

Thread Starter 
Mastiffman: I was wondering If you would do me a favor and possibility anyone else interested in memory timings improvement. What I mean is would you set your ram to say 1600 and run the everest memory bench, then lower the timings and repeat while keeping everything else the same.
IE: 3.8 CPU 2.8 NB whatever HT, ram 1600 9-9-9-27. then 3.8 CPU 2.8 NB same HT, ram 1600 8-8-8-24 and so on and post up the results.

If you would do this I would greatly appreciate it!
