Well I seem to be stable at 3.7ghz @ 1.43v on all 4 cores. Temps are 40c with a watercooling loop in an 80F room. Think I will play with the NB next. What exactly is the bonus of having my NB higher than 2400?

Hey guys, I've just moved from a Athlon 2 x2 250 at 3.7Ghz that was Intel burn test stable to a Athlon 2 x4 640 and I'm having problems getting it stable over 3.5Ghz.

What voltages, speeds..etc..etc.. should I be looking at for the NB, CPU-NB, HT???

Any help would be apreciated

Still liking this mobo. Loving the layout of the board.

Anyway when i power down my pc i hear this sound distortion from my headset or speakers is this normal?

Yes I am using the Zalman CNPS 9700. I did crank up the CPU to NB voltage to just over 1.3v and I was still not able to post w/my rams rated timings & speeds of 6-8-6-24-1T 1600MHz 1.65v. I wonder if it has any thing to do with the fact that I'm using the default bios that was on the mobo when I got it which is v1.9

I get the same thing. I think it may be the intergrated SC shuting down but to be honest i do not know.

I would think that 1.9 should be new enough, but worth a shot.
I must say that the IMC on these chips annoy me a bit (at least mine) forgive me but this is new ram right. It might just be that the IMC cant handle those timings at that speed. try dropping the ram speed. If that does not work I would find the lowest timings I could go and then raise the ram speed until it was unstable and see what I came up with.

Remember with AMD speed is king. 1333 @ 7-7-7-21 < 1600 @8-8-8-24

Thank you Eclipse I always had that in mind. I will give the Redlines one more shot but just found out that they are XMP 6-8-6-24-1T which is an intel standard not AMD. So yeah The IMC on my Chip may not be able to handle those speeds and timings... I'll find out what I can do with them when I get my new set hopefully some time next week.

I have not overclocked it yet mate, and probably never will as i dont know how to overclock AMD cpus at all!

I seen many reviews hit 4.0 / 4.2

Only try to overclcok when you have a great cpu cooler, don't try overcloking on the stock cooler plzzzz

Just read people's settings especially 965 users since its the closest to yours... and then just try them out on yours through the Bios... and even better we are all here with the same motherboard LOL... pretty much it will be similar settings to yours

hmm regular AMD 965 C3 to 4Ghz
200 x 20 - 1.46v (Hopefully just between 1.44v - 1.5v)
2600 on the NB (x13) - 1.25v
HT set it on 2000 - leave voltage on auto

Those voltages you change them exactly where this user changed:

-CPU Voltage (V) <-- CPU - 1.46v
-CPU-NB Voltage (V) <-- NB - 1.25v

Just then test with Prime95 on Blend.. until you pass 3 hours or more, if it crashes the OS (BSOD, reboot)... then just increase the CPU Voltage a bit more... continue until it manages to survive more than 3 hours on Prime95 Blend


But as I said previously.... DO NOT OVERCLOCK until you get a great quality CPU Cooler, in other words do not try it with the stock cooler
