Venice 3200 wont go past 2.35ghz!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
ok basicaly ive got a 3200 venice core...but thats all i know about it...i dont know the revision of it or steppings or anything. Can anyone tell me from the CPU-Z screen if my cpu is a good overclocker, to me that would be if it could get to 2.8ghz would be a good overclocker.



ive got my pc OCCT and Prime 95 stable at 2.35ghz but after that it just keep freezing...i can get into windows upto 2.4ghz but keep freezing. My temps are fine aswell...never goes above 39 degrees so i doubt its the temperature keeping me down
My settings so far (btw go easy on me if my settings seem wrong or crappy, im fairly new to overclocking, read the guides but dont really understand squat) :

FSB:235
Multi:x10
Htt : x3
Vcore :1.475v
Dram :2.70v
Ram : 2-2-2-5

i brought these parts with overclocking in mind, because i heard my components should be good overclockers...but im not getting much at the moment, Can someone please help me..i would greatly appreciate it.

If you need to know anything else, just ask me

Try either loosening your RAM timings to allow them to OC further, or run a divider on 'em. That may be what's holding you back.

You need more Vcore. But that's not what I'm worried about right now.

That power supply cannot support the DFI Lanparty board.

DFI recommends at least a 480w PSU with a native 24-pin ATX plug.

Using that PSU, you are going to have trouble getting stable at higher clocks.

I agree that you should just loosen your timings and run your memory at a divider. Just set the divider so low that you know that is or is not your memory that is holding you back. I think it may just be that you are not getting enough juice to your memory. I am pretty sure that you have BH-5 or CH-5 chips on you memory and they do not shine until you get around 3.2 to 3.3 volts into them. You may want to check it out to make sure, and this DFI Forum Thread will help you along that route. Good luck and let us know.

Oh yea i forgot to mention im running a 9:10 divider 180mhz...........
and about my power supply...im sure its fine because this is what it says in my DFI users manual

they say you need a 350watt psu for a athlon 64 3400 and 2 6600gt's...ive only got a 3200+ and a crappy x700se....im sure ive got ample power here...well atleast thats what i think.....any other ideas people??

How many amps on the 12V rail? That matters more than wattage.

Hmm, it's got dual 12v rails, that should be good enough.
post #9 of 30
i had the exact same problem... for soo long it annoyed me. Turned out that i had to set my ram timings to 3-4-4-8 @ 2T, along with a 166 divider. Now i run @ 2.6 stable, although 2.65 couldnt even boot
On vcore i set it to 5% over normal, in CPU-Z it reads about 1.440 V. Try that.
