[Official] MSI 790FX-GD70 Owners Club - Page 86

post #851 of 9641
Hi everyone. I'm a total noob when it comes to OCing. I've just built my first system and I'm having a really good learning experience. So far I've been able to get my CPU to a stable 3800 running prime95 on a 9 hour test. I don't have cpu-z html saved to show just yet. I'm still tweaking to find my max FSB and then I will be OCing my ram. I love this board.

I am having trouble finding what the max voltages are for the CPU, CPU-NB, and also max Voltages for Patriot Sector 5 2000 DDR3 (cas 8-8-8-24). HELP?

And just for those noobs who stumble upon this ... leave the HT Link ALONE (ie: keep it static at defualt setting or less by lowering your multiplier). If you boost FSB (200 by defualt) and don't account for the increased HT frequency.... find your CMOS reset switch in a big damn hurry. If you make this mistake like I did you'll find out why. And yes I already know I'm going to get this . I will post a cpu-z soon.

Why I run mine(and so do a lot of people) @2400-2600.

GOT PROOF???





Havn't prime95 tested.... I was just stoked I was able to get it to boot up and validate. Will be testing today.

I run my CPU-NB at 2600. I was refering to the BIOS setting below the DRAM settings. If your able to run the HT Link Frequency at 2600MHz then I must be doing something wrong, cause I've only had stability problems when this even around 2020 -2030.

OK... I tested the 3.9GHz and it crashed in .01 seconds. Completely unstable. I got stability for my CPU at 3800 and my CPU-NB at 2600, but when I try to do both at those frequencies my system becomes unstable and sometimes will OC fail to BIOS setup. Any suggestions why this is? I also can't seem to OC my memory to factory defualt of 2000 8-8-8-24 without boot (OC Failed) problems.... anyone else have this problem and what I can do to troubleshoot this?

I know I've posted like five of these things in a row... but from what I've been noticing from other posts who have the same MOBO and CPU as me that I shouldn't have a problem getting this thing to 4 GHz or more. HELP !?!? I know there is some tweaks here that I'm not catching.

I've just discovered post edit... i feel retarded YEAH for the retard LOL!!! I'll avoid the post-it note method in the future.

Im pretty noob when it comes to overclocking, but from what i can gather, if you over clock your cpu, you cant run your ram at full speed. Try running it at 1333. Thats pretty much all i know. Someone will have to clarify and explain more on that though.

Thanks, I'll try lowering my DRAM freq and see if I can get a higher CPU OC.

I may also be wrong but I don't think that is true. I do know that the Phenom's IMC cannot do much more than 1800 on memory. If you can get 1600-1800 then thats great but don't push it more than that. Tighter timings is really where it's at.

The ever elusive 4.0GHz is harder if you have x64 OS, at least as far as prime, OCCT, Intel Burn Test, etc stability is concerned, but it's not impossible for bench sessions:
