[OFFICIAL]Athlon II X2 Regor Series OC Club - Page 11

post #101 of 1106
Could you say the rest of the components of your PC, like your RAM and HSF???

A basic settings are: download your RAM frequency, and set your PCI-e to 100MHz, up your HTT in small increments until you see it's stable, download your HT Link too to 1.8 or 1.6GHz, most probable is you get your HTT to 240MHz or more, but be carefully and see what temperatures has your system...

Too disable in your bios settings like Cool&Quiet, etc... it helps you to stabilize and get best OC for your processor...

Bye!

Thanks a lot.
I have everything set to AUTO

And here is what CPU-Z says

Keep the current vcore, and try increasing the Base clock by 5s at the time. Do a quick Small FFT test after in Prime95 to make sure it's stable. Then whenever it's not stable lower it and try the blended test. On the other hand, you might want to lower the multiplier on your RAM first before overclocking.

Reference Multiplier: 14.5
HTT: 240Mhz (Cpu freq. of 3480Mhz)
V-Core: 1.400 (+.05, stock being 1.35)
CPU-NB Voltage: 1.275 (+.1, stock being 1.175)
CPU-NB frequency: x10 (2400 Mhz)
HT link frequency: x9 (2160 Mhz)
Cooling Unit: Stock

I had posted these specs earlier saying that they were stable for me after stress testing them for a good seven hours. After trying to slowly bump the HTT up to 245, prime95 started failing after 8 minutes. So I dropped everything back down to what I have listed above and for some reason my original overclock is now failing after 2 hours in prime95, which is making me think it was never stable in the first place.

I'm stumped on what to do. Anyone have any ideas?

Loosenut, it depends on your full load temperatures. If they're reaching in the mid 60's then I'd really consider picking up a new cooler. One of the more cheaper ways of improving cpu cooling would be to lap both the cooler and IHS.

Everything else I've kept at auto
Noahf, wow looking great! Try lowering your HT Link multiplier a bit. Right now you're about 630Mhz overclocked. It's not really worth overclocking that speed...the performance difference is very small. Try setting it back to factory defaults (2000Mhz). Try going for 4Ghz again to see if that helps with stability. You can also drop your memory divider as well. That will take the memory out of the picture which should make troubleshooting a lot easier for you.

Silentphantom250, for the HT Link speed try just running 2000Mhz. For the CPU-NB Freq also change the multiplier and run that at stock (2000Mhz). How is your memory setup again? If the memory is being overclocked then that could also cause some issues with your OC.

Good luck

One limitation I've found with AI suite overclocking is that it can only go up to 260. I've been able to push the clock to a fairly stable 290.

ArthuDent, that is actually pretty good. What motherboard are you running again? If you can try adding your system specifications to your rig. That let me and everyone else know what type of hardware you're running: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem.

I suggest you set the RAM manually in the BIOS at latencies for 400MHz (5-5-5-15-23), and probe stability a few hours, then set manually lower latencies or leave at Auto that seems to gave them lower latencies (5-5-5-13-20), and probe stability. It's best for OC know limits for processor first, and then adjust latencies when stability is confirmed...

I suggest too, download voltage to 1.35-1.375V that for overclocking at 3.6GHz this processor usually is enough, if you see unstability, then up voltage if is needed but only at about 1.4-1.425V... All other voltages for NB, RAM, etc... leave at stock values and probe stability...

Bye!

jacqlittle 1.4volts is stock volts for my chip does not go any lower in my bios..
3.5 is the highest i can go on stock volts ..
thought my temps would let have the higher volts?
