Help getting to 2.8GHz

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I cant get above 2.7 at all, I've tried different Multis, RAM dividers, increased chipset volts, At 2.7 I use 1.65 volts 26 idle, 48load. I cant seem to accept that is as high as my CPU will go, am I missing something??

2.7 is an amazing overclock for your X2...I'm surprised you got that much out of it. You will not be able to get 2.8..

EDIT: wait a minute, if your 2.7 isn't prime stable, that doesn't count...

it is dual prime at 2.7, but I cant get anything above that not even 2.73, I'm not at all interested yet what I cant do just what I can (no offense). HTT does best at 300x9, but I've also used 270x10

I've been asking that question for a while, I dont think the current 3800 steppings get a big OC, like u said .4-.6 max, but I bought mine last Nov, with your 4800 if the steppings have truly changed u wont get a big OC.... anyways with the X2's with 1MB L2 Cache (4400&4800)with the bigger cache they actually get a smaller OC, 4800 between 2.5-2.8

you are just at the chips limit. 3800x2's dont overclock that much...2.6-2.7 is all...you gotta buy a different chip if you want more speed.
