I have had some trouble but now I have completed it.
I clocked my 3.4 LGA 775 to 4.11
242 x 17 @ 1.5
Had it at 4.199 but was unstable.
Aquamark score of 70,663
3D Mark 03 scroe of 14,605

Thats a good overclock. However I would expect your score in Aquamark 3 to have at least scrapped the 80,000 mark range.
This could mean one of the following.
  • Thermal Throttling is running (TM1)
  • Your other components apart from CPU/GPU are holding it back
  • Other applications were taking some of the processing power of the system

I would recommend making sure that none of them are happening.

Also a note about the thermal specification of your CPU. Keep the CPU temperature below 65C to maxmise stablability and keep the CPU voltage (vcore) below 1.55v, you can go higher on the voltage if your system can handle it

how about crappy ddr 3400 300/400 mhz? timing is 2.5-3-3-7

my voltage only allows up to 1.55 and i kept around 1.5 and mywater cooling keeps the temp around 40 under 100% load

also it seems that unless I increase the pci express frequency, I cannot oc the board

the general equation for this is 242/111=x/y
where x equals desired cpu frequency
y equals resulting necessary PCI-E frequency
for instance if I wanted 3.8 ghz clock, i divide 3800 by my multiplier (x 17) and get 223.5. This is the x value.
Then cross multiply 111*223.5/242 equaling 102.51 or 103. The PCI-E frequency needs to be equal to or greater than 103 or the oc wont work.
I suspect this is normal, maybe some boards do it automatically but I have to do it manually.
What do you think about this?
