CPU NB at 2.6 Ghz @ 1.2V

Which one is the physical voltage for DDR and what should it be at?

Ddr physical voltage is directly above the dram voltage in cell menu,give this a couple of notches,helps stability for ram,i would be inclined to give your CPU-NB a bit more juice,2.6ghz @1.2v not really enough for the IMC at that frequency in my opinion,try 1.3-1.35v,and then try your ram @1600 on the 1:4 divider at stock timings,see how that goes.

Also,what bios revision are you on,??

Oh nooo! That's a "pessimistic attitude" I want my money back for those 8%
You should know (cause you are an overclocker) that "everything counts in large amounts"
So, when Phenom's can be stressed out to 100% why NVidia chip can't???

BTW! What can I do to really overclock my Asus 260 GeForce a little bit more?

Now it's like:
GPU clock = 662 MHz
Shader clock = 1400 MHz
Memory clock = 2220 (it can go higher but, eventually it gives no noticable boost in performance)

A little overvoltage of PCI-E would give anything?

---
BTW! Memory Settings and timings
I have found recently (I think) quite useful guides...

This one is about BIOS features:
http://www.modshop.net/print/6543

This one could be a little bit outdated but... well, I think it's interesting:
http://www.maximumpc.com/article/fea...aks?page=0%2C0

and ... as a attachment 790FX BIOS guide in pdf I have found on some page ...

Hope this could be useful for anyone

Being that 5200 is the HT Standard for the Phenom II Chips 2600Mhz on the CPU-NB should run within Stock Volts on Every PII. Stock Voltage for the PII's CPU-NB is 1.15- 1.30v. Most should be good around 1.25-1.28v...

I'm having trouble getting my HT link above 2200. I put my cpu back to stock 3.4ghz clock, and I've tried my memory both at 1333 and 1600

My pc runs fine, and intel burn test passes as well as prime95's all day with 2200@1.35v.. But it blue screens with 2400 no matter what voltage I throw at it, tried up to 1.5v just to see if it would work, blue screened booting into windows..

It was to my understanding I want a 2400-2600 or 2800 on the ht link for best overclocking on my CPU and memory, correct me if I'm wrong, tryin to learn. Going to do a lot more reading tonight and mess with it

I'm still new to overclocking this new stuff, last I knew a decent amount about was the my old socket 754 system I overclocked..

EDIT: blah, one of my sticks of memory is bad. Didn't set my pc up and memtest it or anything tell over a month after purchasing it (was a christmas present from my father.. So I didn't get it before new egg RMA time.. So never took time to test componets since they worked lol)
basically screwed myself but whatever. Will wait tell I can pick up some new memory before I get back to overclocking. Was hoping to have 8gig of memory, but looks like I'll be waiting on that so I can get a good 4 gigs of memory for now lol

Hi all,

I just put together a build for my fiancee with this motherboard and am having a few problems. I tried looking through this thread, but it is quite long and wasn't able to find anything.

Specs:
MSI 790FX-GD70
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
Antec Twelve Hundred Case
Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro
2x Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 4870
OCZ Platinum 4 GB (2 x 2 GB)
WD Caviar Blue
Antec CP-850 850 W Power Supply
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Basically my problem is with the graphics cards in cross fire mode. I've only tested a couple of games I had laying around so far. Civ 4 gives a lot of artifacts on screen, while Titan Quest freezes and I get the error "AMD driver has stopped responding and successfully recovered". Also, the new version of furmark will give the same error if stress tested at 1980 x 1080 immediately, i.e. the image doesn't even show up before crashing. I've run Memtest overnight and experienced no errors. If I remove the crossfire bridges, the errors go away. I also have two sapphire Radeon HD 4870s in my computer which I swapped into hers and I get the same problems, while putting her 4870s in my computer causes no problems. I've tried bios versions 1.7 and 1.9; 1.7 definitely takes longer to initially have errors, but once they start they keep happening. I've also tried a couple of different catalyst drivers. I've also tried the crossfire bridges in my computer without a problem.

The only thing I can think is it is either a bad mobo, or overheating, as the arctic cooling freezer heatsink sucks for this board as it has to either blow up or down, not back, and has less than an inch of clearance from the top GPU. Does anyone have other ideas, had similar problems, and/or know a solution?

Well I thank you for the response, but it doesn't seem to have worked. I followed the steps, and everything was fine at each point. However, I'm still having the same problems. Any other ideas, anyone?

Sorry for the Confusion of HT Link and CPU-NB. CPU-NB is the Integrated Memory Controller and will increase the effiency of the Memory!

The HT Link is the Hypertransport Link which links the cores together and the CPU to the Chipsets. 2000Mhz on the HT Link actually provides enough bandwidth for the cores to communicate amongst themselves as well as with the chipsets. But there has been Mildly noted improvement with 3D Applications....

I've ran my HT Link and CPU-NB both @ 3003Mhz Before, Stably! SO it's possible. Whther or not it's beneficial is another story.....

Hope this helps!

Not really. Since you already have the 790FX I see no reason to upgrade. 890FX has more PCI Ex16 slots and support for Sata 6gb/s.

I am on the latest beat bios, so that should not be an issue...am able to run at 4000/2600/1333 prime for like 3-4 hours, which was the max i tested. And when you say couple of notches, what is the base V for that to start from.
