Go to Green Power setting and disable it

I'm betting your right about my VRMs frying because on the backside of the board right behind them I noticed a slight leaking/condensation, seems that two of them went out.

After this experiance I will definitely invest in some NB/VRM cooling, I'm considering this Scythe Mini Kaze, good choice?

As for reseating the NB, should I add some thermal grease or just simply seat it better? Thanks for the heads up.

What frequencies are you currently running at? Can't really help without this information. It doesn't really matter if your vcore voltages are lower then cpu-nb. 1.30v on my late GD70 (rip) would take my CPU-NB up to 2.8GHz easy.

@Regamaster

oops my bad.

Currently,

X4 B55 CPU@3600 CPU-NB@2600

In Bios,
CPU 1.36
CPU-NB 1.30
DDR 1.66
rest auto

In Everest now,
CPU 1.34
CPU-NB 1.34-1.35
DDR ?(i can't monitor this anywhere)

Max temp is 49 degrees(CPU temp minus 3 degrees)
Northbridge always hovering 60 degrees to 70 degrees (reseated it already, temps dropped by 5 degrees)

running prime95 blended 10 minutes only XD I tried dropping a notch to 1.34 CPU Voltage but BSOD in a few seconds in prime95 blended. (Same for CPU-NB Voltage, once i dropped just a notch to 1.29, i will BSOD in a few seconds in prime95 blended)

EDIT

I have just BSOD, and this is the error,

stop:0:00000124 It is pcie device error

I have my SSD installed and in AHCI mode. I heard your supposed to install the Intel drivers for the HD Controller. I searched the Intel site and didn't find these drivers. Anyone know where I can get them?

It's important to remember that when you're overclocking ALWAYS make sure one overclock is stable before you move onto the next.

Are you sure your CPU is 100% stable with 1.36 on the vcore as an unlocked quad @ 3.6GHz? I prefer running 6+ hours of Prime95 Small FFTs without any crashes/errors to be sure it's stable. Once you've confirmed that you can move onto overclocking your Northbridge and RAM speeds by finding their sufficient voltages and stress testing them with Prime95 Blend Test.

Hope this helps, good luck with your OC.

I'm in the works of CPU 3.5Ghz CPU-NB 2600

In Bios
CPU 1.36
CPU-NB 1.30
DDR 1.65

In Everest
CPU 1.34
CPU-NB 1.33-1.35
DDR ?(Can't find anywhere)

I'm at Prime95 Blended custom 83% ram(to be exact)

Reaching 5hours now, I'm aiming for 12hours.

Currently LOAD
Max CPU temp 53(Core temp will be estimate 50)
North-bridge 66-72 degrees >.>

I will update here again when it is done (:

Hey guys. UPS says my replacement Redlines are out for delivery. Now I'll be able to try 1600 at 6-8-6-24-1T again.

Can any one tell me what other voltages may need to be adjusted other than CPU & CPU NB in order to make the system stable enough to post at 1600 6-8-6-24-1T ?

Thanks,

N2G

Any conflicts or whatsoever?
I've actually ran my CPU at stock speeds and undervolted (3.2ghz with 1.25v) and overclocked my NB to 3000mhz with 1.5v and everything was fine and dandy.

Any fan should be good, a 80mm fan works the best for me though, when I was using one before. I just took off the 80mm fan from the 955's stock heatsink and just put it over the NB.

I would put your NB voltage at 1.2v or higher. HT-Link at 1.3v and also your DRAM voltage at it's rated voltage. Look at my post in the last page if you want an example of what voltages to set in the BIOS.

YES! 12hours 50minutes Prime Blended 83% Ram Usage.

CPU 3.5Ghz CPU-NB 2600
4GB dominator 7-8-7-20 1T 1333 1.65(stock is 9-9-9-24 1600 1.65)

In Bios
CPU 1.36
CPU-NB 1.30
DDR 1.65

In Everest
CPU 1.34
CPU-NB 1.33-1.35
DDR ?(Can't find anywhere)

In CPU-Z
CPU 1.336

Temps same as my previous post. I would say WOW, it can run much below stock voltage. I pretty much love it now XD

Should i go for ram speed/voltage? or lower cpu-nb voltage?
