Yes, you are going to need to raise the vcore up some.. Seems like your running it at 3.8GHz on stock, which I don't see holding up long. Use a 1:1 ratio for best preformance. Also, you don't really need to adjust your memory voltage because your running loose memory timings

I would say that for testing purposes 1.5V is your max. For longterm use I would stick with 1.45V or lower.

I would also purchase some better cpu cooling as stock is not the way to go with a Prescott overclock.

yeah i know.. i've been looking into better cooling.. but this thing doesn't seem to get too hot. 50-60c under load. Could be cooler though. Any recommendations?

ah ok i didn't think it was that high... i'm looking into better cooling now.

jbrown, or anyone for that matter,
who can tell me what i have to change to get to a 1:1 ratio, i guess i'm just not understanding this concept.

Edit: If this helps any my "advanced chipset settings" are as follows

Configure DRAM Timing by SPD [Disabled]
DRAM CAS# Latency [3.0 Clocks]
DRAM RAS# Precharge [4 Clocks]
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay [4 Clocks]
DRAM Precharge Delay [8 Clocks]
DRAM Burst Length [8 Clocks]
Memory Acceleration Mode [Auto]
DRAM Idle Timer [Auto]
DRAM Refresh Rate [Auto]

Temp is almost relative........it definatly depends on the core......Prescotts run hot, but they can handle it, Northwoods (IIRC) don;t handle heat well and need to be lower.


My Presler at stock settings idled at 43 and hit 55 at load....OC'd to 4Ghz it idles at 48 and hits 62 at full (both cores running at 100%) load.

Generally, you want to stay under 60 at load, and low 50s are ideal (again, depending on the type of chip you have)


A good cooler will definatly give you some breathing room.......but I don;t think your CPU is glowing red or anything
