Anyone ????
What is the average of NB overclocks that cold boot past 2600MHz.

Not much of a difference from 2800 to 3000mhz, but for an NB OC of 3000mhz+, I have to use 1.45-1.5V for CPU-NB voltage. As much as the others say the NB voltage has nothing to do with CPU-NB overclocking, I need it anywhere from 1.35V-1.4V, where it regularly is at around 1.25-1.26V.

Here's a chart of settings I found work best with my rig:

CPU-stock/minor OCs:

HT ref clcok/FSB: 200
CPU: 3200mhz (16x)
NB-CPU: 2400 (12x)
RAM: 1:4 | 1600mhz 7-7-7-20-27-1T Unganged
HT-Link Speed: 2000mhz (10x)

CPU voltage: 1.25V
NB-CPU voltage: 1.2V
CPU PLL voltage: 2.6V (Auto works)
DRAM voltage: 1.9-1.95V (rated voltages)
NB voltage: 1.25V
NB PCI-E voltage: 1.15V (Auto works)
NB PCI-E I/O voltage: 1.82V (Auto works)
HT Link voltage: 1.25V (Auto works)
SB voltage: 1.25V (Auto works)
Spread Spectrum: disabled

-----------------------------------------------------------

One of my most stable overall OC:

HT ref clcok/FSB: 300
CPU: 3900mhz (19x) OR 4050 (19.5x)
NB-CPU: 3000 (10x)
RAM: 3:8 | 1600mhz 7-7-7-20-27-1T Unganged
HT-Link Speed: 2100mhz (7x) OR 3000mhz (10x)

CPU voltage: 1.48V-1.52V
NB-CPU voltage: 1.46V
CPU PLL voltage: 2.652V (Auto works)
DRAM voltage: 1.9-1.95V (rated voltages)
NB voltage: 1.4V
NB PCI-E voltage: 1.15V (Auto works)
NB PCI-E I/O voltage: 1.82V (Auto works)
HT Link voltage: 1.25V (Auto works)
SB voltage: 1.25V (Auto works)
Spread Spectrum: disabled

*For stability reasons, some of these voltages are a click or few higher than what is required.

Most of us here can cold boot 2800mhz-3000mhz, but most of us also use 955/965s. I recommend this board, as I've been able to push my parts way past safe voltages and they have not malfunctioned in any way. It's not necessary to go past 2400mhz NB if your RAM is set at 1600mhz, so you might not even need a new board.

I use 2800-3000,and will cold boot,but it really depends on the chip/board.

nice guide there, will try those settings on my rid after dinner and see if it will let me post with 3000mhz NB as 2800 seems to be my block atm, tho my cpu temps get a bit out of hand at times thank god winter is rolling in lol...need to get my water cooling setup going as i am just using a xigmatek red scorpion. Will let ya's know what i get

it seems that the thuban x4 cpus could be unlocked to x6 chips, same as the x3 to x4 phenoms with a bios update but im seriously liking the rumored pricing of those x6 chips

btw guys remember a few weeks ago i posted that my 320gb lost its data and i couldn't access it to format it or partition it? well i fixed it after alot of mucking around with it and i also managed to get all my data back!. I had to use a program called Hirens boot cd to load a image of windows xp so i could see my hard drives but not running windows 7. Then i could copy the data from that drive to another one, repartitioned the drive and booted back into windows 7, copied the data back to the 320gb drive and it all seems to be going fine!. Have no idea what the hell happened with it. Beginning to think it has something to do with file sharing with the PS3 via windows media player as it done as similar thing with my photos on another drive. every photo you tryed to open would ask you to run it as a administrator even tho i was the administrator and had to allow thing and allow that to get it to open...fixed that problem too using Hirens and booting to XP. I got a beta version of windows 7 SP1 so hopefully it has fixed the issues! so far so good.

So you are saying that my 720 BE is the issue.

When I did get 2650 MHz on the NB and it booted but not cold boot the performance was great, now I want it back.

Ok i'm trying to get to 4 ghz with this board. Right now i'm at:

CPU Voltage: 1.45
CPU-NB: 1.2
NB: 1.2
Ram: 1.65

Ive tried up to:
CPU Voltage: 1.5
CPU-NB 1.3
NB: 1.3
and northbridge at 2400.

Ideas? Doing something wrong? Need a updated bios?

settings for my c3 965 at 4GHz:

cpu vcore 1.44
cpu-nb 1.35 (2800MHz)

No changes on NB voltage.

DDR voltage is at stock voltage as set by the vendor (1.65v) and frequency is at 1600MHz with stock latencies 8-8-8-20-36

This config is 19+ hours stable at prime 95 using latest official bios 1A (or 1.10)
