what are you using to monitor cpu temp? thats gotta be wrong. it should shut down or bsod when it gets to the low to mid 60's

WHat are you're voltages at? being that in the C/M Bench your IMC freq was just voer 2700mhz. I would guess that you mgiht need to bump the CPU-NB Volts.

I agree. Although I thought that the threshold for shutdown was 72*C. But that may be for K8 Chips. So 65-67*c sounds about right.

Good Suggestion Mav2000!






Another "Honorable Mention" here Techno! No good cooling = no good OC. Stock Coolers are only good for mild OC's, safely...
Thanks all of you.

I've got a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED which looks just beautiful and its taken a good 15c off my temps from using the stock. I'll keep my eye on the temps. I'll aim to keep temp between 55-57 when running prime95. So I'll settle for the best OC I can get with that cooler. Also going to get a new powersupply in a week or so. Using some no name 400w ps now. Want to get a 600-650 one.

Anyway, next question: For OC'ing the Ram, I would do that by changing which exact bios option? And what is the best testing app for testing ram stability?


Thanks!

That -15*C should help dramatically.

As far as the Ram OCing. You should set the Ram strap (i.e. 1:2, 1:2.66, 1:3.33 or 1:4) to the highest of the settings (back in the parenthesis) that will be under the Ram Freq that you want to achieve.

Example: HT Ref Clk @ 200mhz and Ram Strap at 1:3.33 will Give you a stock Ram speed of 1333mhz. So if you are trying to achieve 1500Mhz, you wouldn't want to set the Ram strap to 1:4 because that would automatically yield the Ram to run at 1600mhz. Make sense?

And to the Best of my knowledge, I haven't heard that running Any Ram Freq. in conjuction with a higher HT Ref Clk mhz will yield better performance.

Although I have expereinced a tad bit better response time in OS and installed software with a higher HT Ref Clk.... so that is up to you... A higher HT Link Freq. will do this also...

The Best wisdom that i can give you is to take your time and get to "know" your system and what it responds well to.... And what it doesn't like. Most have state from experince that the Phenom II quads like Cooler temps and not higher voltage... Thios is a prime example of getting to know your hardware... Methodically playing around with each component with give you the best knowledge that you can gain...

Good luck and keep feeling free to ask more questions.

I'm so pumped! Currently running a C2 version 955, great chip, bought my friend a C3 555 and using his Asus board unlocked it to a quad core, so he traded me chips! I can't wait to see if I can hit the same 3.8ghz stable with this new chip! Time to buy some real ram [-_-]

1090t in testing.

With the very same settings of 965C3, this is noticeably cooler at full load.

I noticed also that it reaches 4GHz+ CPU and 3GHz CPU-NB easier.

And the most important: In two days of good tests, nothing burned.

I'll try to keep it safely and stability with 4.1 and 3.0GHz.

What BIOS are you using? I am on 1.12 and can't seem to get my NB past 2500mhz, even with 1.4v. Could just be my RAM holding me back though. They went from 7.5 to 5.9 in the Windows Index Rating. They pass memtest all day though which leaves me

If you don't mind can you post the voltages you use in the BIOS for me as a reference? Thanks in advance!

Is there an advantage to having a high HT Ref Clk?
Since the multipliers are unlocked I don't see much of a point to changing it more then a few MHz.
Does the performance increase with lower multipliers and higher HT Ref Clk?
