3700+ SD Overclocking Journey - Page 5

Okay, tried testing @ 2500, no luck with that. I'm running 2-2-2-5 with 3.75 Vdimm measured w/ a DMM. Vcore is at 1.54. Chipset @ 1.62, LDT @ 1.3. What's up with this?

Budy of mine and I are playing with his new rig. similar to yours. 3700/DFI SLI/Geil 4000/7800gtx/crap psu thow. The best we have was 2.745ghz. Got it with 305x9/LDT x3/1.65vcore/2.9vdimm/Running big divider, ram at like 225 at 2.5 cas. Seemed stable but the vcore would drop from time to time from 11.88 to 11.84 then to 11.74 and it would reboot... so im thinking psu. Im VERY supprised your having issues a 2.5. His didnt even need more vcore for that to be just fine... I would try a lower cpu multi and higher fsb to see if you can find the wall there... also loosen those timings and slow the ram down with a divider just to take it out of the stability equation...

Yep. Just tested @ 2300 w/ OCCT, stable 1:1. I'll throw a divider in there to see how fast this CPU's really capable of going, then.

Dividers give the best performance, in my opinion. I get better benchmark scores (besides SANDRA) when running my memory at 240 with 2-3-3-6 timmings than I do running at 1:1 270Mhz with 2.5-3-3-7 timmings. I can reach higher CPU speeds using dividers too.
On another note... My San Diego 3700+ can do 2.7 with a 1.55 vcore. 2.88 with 1.675 (I know it's high but temps. seem to be fine). All this is by running a divider of course.

what fsb/multi/LDT you using at 2.88. I think im gonna be on here later tonight trying my damnedest to get him (my budy) up to 2.8 even if its not stable.... just wanna see it at 2.8+ in CPUZ. Not to steal this thread but lemme ask ya guys.... I see his dfi has vcore and the setting for vcore %... so you can set vcore at 1.50 and 112% giving like 1.65 or whatever the math works out to... Y and whats the benifit if any of using the % feature over just uping the vcore setting at just 100%. again sorry to steal

I'm using a different board but I don't think it matters much since my OC is rather "mild" compared to others. HTT at 288, multi. is 10, vcore is at 1.675 (rather high but keep im mind I have a SI-120 on the CPU with a 110CFM fan running full blast). Memory is running on a divider.

Mild?? i think your OC pwns man! on a 3700.. Hell ya! anyway hes got a xp120 with a 90cfm fan full blast his cpu temp was like 55 load at 1.65 vcore. Think hes got to much as5 on there... anyway so maybe we could try less fsb and run it 10x

Not well at all, in fact. I've tried everything, including running vcore upwards of 1.722. Memory's running at 3.7 in BIOS, but accordign to my multimeter, 3.75. I'm hesitant to push it to 3.85 becaues that's what it's warrantied up to, and if this stuff goes on me, I'm screwed.

Hes back!
I dont think voltage is the issue here... have you loosened up the timings? what are they set at now? what divider did you set?
