Overclocking 3700+ SD

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Specs in sig. It is currently at 2.3 Ghz (230x10). Memory at 2-3-3-7. It is rated for DDR600 at 2.5-4-4-8, so I think I may be able to hold these timings up to -/+ 250 if I up the voltage. Everything at stock voltage atm. How should I go about doing this O/C? Go for 10 multi or 9? Load temp is 38, idle at 29 (I didn't use AS5, nor am I going to be able to get a hold of any any time soon). Any suggestions are welcome.

alright, here we go...try these settings

250x10
HTT x4
leave memory the same, increase volts to 2.8
increase vcore to 1.55.

If this doesn't work, it's your memory. I would recommend loosening the timings to what you already listed..

I got my KABYE to 2.8 with 255*11 at 1.58 vcore. I used BH RAM though, so I'm running 1.5-2-2-5.

Lemme reboot and try those settings. Will prime during the night, I guess. I will leave the timings loose. Right now I'm concerned with the cpu and not the memory. When I get a good, stable setting I will try to tighten the timings. One step at a time...

Edit: I will just bump the voltage on the memory to 2.9, as it is under warrenty 'till past that. Though Im pretty sure I voided my warranty by the way I forced the mem into the slots, but that's a different story.

next step is moving to 260. Dont touch the voltage, keep upping your FSB until you run into stability problems.. I wouldn't go over 1.6v yet.

I moved the memory to 2.9 and it was giving 2.98 in the BIOS Puting it at 2.8 gave it 2.89 lol. Will try 260x10 after I reboot (I have to install some drivers, multi-task).
