post #461 of 4334
well finally started overclocking my 965 c3 on this board, and im starting with the cpu oc only first, then once thats stable, i will move onto the nb

right now, im at 4ghz @1.50v, ram at stock settings and voltage
cpu-nb voltage is stock as well

ran 10 passes of max mem linx, and temps were 55
im running prime 95 small fft right now to test for final cpu stability, and temps peaked to 56 but have settled so far at 53 for a few hours

does 1.5 seem like alot for a c3 965 for 4ghz?
also, what if i bump my cpu-nb volts and drop my vcore, will that help stability at all or at stock nb freq does it not matter for cpu overclocking?

fyi, i cant recommend this g skill pi ddr3 1600 memory enough...i tightened the timings to 6-7-6-24-1t at stock 1.6 voltage, and im memtest 2 hours stable without a hitch so far...im wondering if i should try for 6-6-6-24-1t

I think I'm going to get the DDR3-2200 set -- the set that comes with the fan for the RAM. I know that AM3 boards can't get that high on the memory, but I like how this set is actually listed on Gigabyte's memory compatibility list (unlike my last set of RAM that crapped the bed ), I like the fan it comes with, and I like how they're basically guaranteed to run at 1600MHz with tight timings because they're binned for 2200MHz.

cool, i saw those too..also, g skill is coming out with their flare series, which are ddr3 2000+ modules designed specifically for AMD AM3 boards...about time someone gave us some love and designed something for us and not just intel

Thanks for that. After some snooping around, I found this thread. These will drop during the beginning of June. I think I'll wait around for these then .

Run BlueScreenView application.

It reads the bsod dump file that was left behind and will tell you what caused the crash.
