Weird

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Finally im able to go over 2.9!!!

Im using the Core Center for overclock, since I only OC when Im going to play.

I set it to 3.2, fsb 180, but it suddenly goes to 3.6/203. My memory is junk so it :withstupi crash at 207.

I turned on the auto function of the CC and it crashed at 194fsb, why It got to 203 then???? Is there a way to make the CC not pass a specific fsb???

You would be better off using your BIOS. You would be able to adjust your voltage and get higher. You would still need to run a divider.

I dropped the divider, becuase it didnt let me past 2970, the memorey speed was 206.x, now at 1:1 I gained more speed.

Well software oc'ing is known to not be stable sometimes and give funky problems. Maybe try a different software, or if your temps are good, why not oc all the time? If your temps are ok, there's no reason not to leave your oc on 24/7, high temps are what kills not just that fact that your oc'ing. But most people steer clear of software oc'ing, just because it causes alot of problems sometimes.

Also, you're supposed to name your thread with some kind of descriptive title, "weird" doesn't exactly qualify.

Hehe Sorry, next thread will be more descriptive ehehehe

I dont have $$$ for leave the oc on 24/7, its scare me ehehe

Ya but like I said it's all about the temps. Just having an oc, even a good one, doesn't mean your computer will fail, even after years of it. Read around and you'll see, as long as temps are good, I don't think there's any real degrading of the lifespan of your hardware.

Like someone with no oc, with 60C load temps, would have a better chance of failure than someone with a good heatsink and 45-50C load temps. When your talking about stress failure of cpu's or whatever, it's totally about heat. Don't fear the oc, embrace it . It's not bad for it really. You can have something fail without an oc just as easily.

Well, yeah, is true, some parts will fail whithout an OC, I will think about it!!! Thanks

running a much higher voltage than standard will wear out a component quicker than at standard voltage but it still takes time, even with the appropriate cooling used. corecenter is not the most stable of programs to use when overclocking, if you want to use corecenter make sure you are using the latest version as some early versions have problems, clockgen would be a better windows based overclocking tool.....http://www.cpuid.com/clockgen.php

Have anyone AMD/Intel run a CPU overC for more than a few months? years?

Oh yes, plenty of people have run overclocks for years with no problems. Heat like I said, is the killer of electronics usually, or they just fail no matter what you do, it's the nature of the beast. Also, upping voltage like already mentioned can be a facter as well, but just upping it a little (as long as your temps are good) won't necessarily harm it whatsoever. For a prescott like yours, recommended safe voltages, are the stock 1.4, up to 1.525. Only a bit higher if you have some extreme cooling setup. And if your temps are good, running it at 1.525 isn't likely to harm it at all. But find the lowest voltage you can run your oc stable with, cause of course lower is better and less stressful on the cpu. People who usually kill their cpu's from overclock are probably either not monitoring their temps, or they're trying to reach some pretty damn extreme oc's. Or their cpu was goind to die anyway, cause it just happens sometimes, luck of the draw.

Read up about it using the search function and you'll see it's true, oc'ing is not a bad thing if you do it correctly. Plus, these cpu's have some pretty good built in thermal protections, it's actually pretty hard to kill one, they're tough little bastards really . Once they reach a certain temp (over 65 into the 70's or so for prescott), they'll start to throttle themselves to cool off anyway. And if it gets real hot (I think like 90 something, not sure exactly), it will shut down in order to save itself. I've seen some stress tests done by people way above recommended temps, and the cpu was fine after. Just stay below 65C under 100% load for a prescott to be safe. I like to keep mine under 60, but that's a personal preference thing. Some like to keep it 55 and lower, but I've seen them stressed to hell running in the upper 80's and over 90, and they don't die.
