No Worries

Okay now it's time I finally got my rig assembled more or less today. I'm missing a GPU and I've gotta send my 2 x 4850's off for RMA here shortly but that's another story for another time

However, I'm playing around with my Athlon II X4 630 right now. Currently it's at 220 x 14 for 3080.03Mhz and I'm running OCCT for stability. I know it's stable but the point is to also get some good load temps with my new cooler. So far I'm super impressed. Idle temps are as low as 15-17c and load temps so far haven't gone over 35c. vCore is a bit high and I've left it on auto but for some reason this new Gigabyte BIOS seems to think that this CPU needs 1.4v to run at stock...it's still using stock vcore at 3Ghz though. I'll add validation once I get a good overclock. Also, I used AS5 for my TIM. I was trying to decide between IC7, AiT Cool Silver, and AS5 and the AS5 was almost empty so I used it to get rid of the tube.

Also for those that have been hating on my PSU, voltage is very stable. 3.31 on 3.3, 4.95 on 5v , 12.35 on 12v. The voltage hasn't dropped as of yet so good new so far but it's running a light load. Once my graphics cards get back from RMA, i'll move my other HDD's over into it and I can start the process of migrating all my data from my Athlon XP machine to 6400+ Machine.

Edit: after 15mins of OCCT, the temp finally hit 37C

Okay now running at 240 x 14 for 3360Mhz with HT Link and NB at 2400Mhz and RAM at 960Mhz. Stability testing being done via OCCT 3.1.0 and so far I'm quite happy...idle temp at 17c still and load temp has just hit 38c after 15 mins. I'll update again and post validation once this is completed. I'll see if I can hit 260 x 14 next for 3.6Ghz and if I can get it stable, going for 275 x 14 for 1 Ghz overclock Validation

Current Validtion: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1042051

Weird though, the voltage on my screen is still showing as 1.43v and on the validation it's 1.472...odd.

Got my Athlon II X4 630 2 weeks ago and my goal was 3500 Mhz. I finally made it to my goal. Here is my validation:

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1042330

Ran Prime95 last night for 12 hrs. and it was stable. Idle temperature is 32C and under load 52C.

Very happy with this processor.

Nice..I just got up to 255 on mine without even needing to boost the volts past auto. Gonna try for 260 later on tonight. What cooler are you using?

It's a Zalman 9700. I think it's doing a good job considering that I had to raise the voltage to 1.485v.

Damn not stable Reboot after about 30 minutes of Prime95 and 6 minutes of OCCT. So, time to play boost the voltage.

Okay voltage in BIOS now at 1.55 vCore with 1.225 CPU-NB volts and auto on everything else. So far seems to have given some measure of stability. Running stress test now.

http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1042780

lol and before I even finished editing this post it failed.....error detected on Core 2. At least it switches around...sometimes it's core 0, 1, 2, and 3. I'm afraid to push the voltage higher and I'm not sure what's causing the instability.

I'll try and figure this out tomorrow...going back to 255 x 14 as it seems it's the highest I can get on stock.

1.225 CPU-NB seems really low for 260x14 at 260 i needed around 1.33v to stay stable

I would lower the HT and NB multiplier so it's closer to 2000 Mhz. I've read that you won't see much difference over 2200 Mhz anyways. Yes, 1.55 vcore is kind of high.

Yeah I'm thinking it's another voltage drop but I gotta install that crazy Gigabyte software to see what my current volts are for all things so I can take it a notch above that for stability. I've heard the NB clock shows improvement as well and I'm definitely seeing one with a higher NB and HT Link clock. But it seems the highest I can go stable on stock volts is 256 x 14 which isn't bad for 3.5Ghz without needing to change a thing.

Okay apparently 255 x 14 worked last night but not today...so I had to drop down to 252 x 14 which is my highest on stock settings which isn't bad at all. I wish the RAM clock was higher though Here's validation: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1044882
