Didn't think about changing it at first I tried everything even upping the CPU voltage to 1.55v and nothing was allowing it to post until I changed that

I have tried it at 14x 250, 3.5ghz 1.375v, and it BSOD badly running Prime95. And I'll admit, I'm a little "oc shy" to try again with less ram. ahha

When you oc using the FSB it also raises your DRam, NB and HT speeds. I prefer to run mine at specs and at 250mhz I can easily downclock mine to those exact numbers. eg.. 200mhz = 2000mhz NB/HT, 250mhz = 2500mhz NB/HT..

What volts are you using on your NB and HT ?

What volts are you using on your NB and HT ?
250 x 14 = 3.50GHz, 1.425v
2500NB @ 1.175v (stock CPU-NB)
2000HT
DDR2-1000 @ 5-5-5-15-15, 2.20v

Once my CPU speed started climbing up past that point though, I'm having to use more and more CPU-NB voltage. I can pull off 2750MHz NB stable with 1.40v CPU-NB. But I can't boot with it (I can only use K10Stat to adjust CPU-NB).

At my current clocks:
275 x 13.5 = 3.71GHz, 1.55v
2475NB @ 1.30v CPU-NB (never really tried less honestly)
2200HT
DDR2-1100 @ 5-5-5-15-20, 2.30v

Hello! First time poster, long time reader of these forums. I think this may be my only place to get some real answers to my question since I have Intel Fanboys just telling me to constantly sell my crap and buy something good. All I want is something real

Im getting my Tax check on Friday and I got a good deal on a Radeon 6970 that Im gong to buy for just under the price of a 6950. I was just going to buy the 6950 and unlock it to 6970 specs since they are the exact same card. However Im wondering if my new card will be bottlenecked by my Athlon II X4 630@3.4 ghz?

My Athlon seems to handle my games pretty well with my Radeon 5850, but Im afraid that when I get the new card I wont see a big improvement on my games at 1080 resolutions. What do you guys think? Would the lack of L3 hurt me here? Any insight would be greatly apprechaited!

Athlon II does well with no L3 cache. It's actually very comparable to Phenom I performance.

The only game that I have any issues at all with is GTA IV. Which a Phenom II quad at 3.6GHz (my Athlon II being at 3.7) has the same exact problem.

So overclock your Athlon a little more if you can. But no, it won't slow down a high end single GPU card. It'll be just fine. The only "bottleneck" you'll ever see is on CPU intensive games such as GTA IV (that's literally the ONLY one I can't max out).
