why so many overclock problems?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
the Asrock 939 dual-sata 2 is notorious for its terrible overclocking but what i dont understand is that even while the maximum frequency is set to 273 i can even boot my computer at 270? im not getting enough voltage to the board as the maximum voltage is 1.45 and im not getting the full potential out of my cooler i dont think. does anyone else have this motherboard or expierenced it and have any pointers to squeeze as much performance as i can?

im running it at 260x11 and am happy my comp didnt crash i dont think its stable
usualy im at 252x11 but not fast enough for me

You might want to consider doing this VCore Mod. I would suggest getting yourself a conductive ink pen as it is the easiest to do and easiest remove and retry if it is not a clean link. Might be your memory holding you back too though.

This thread might help you out, too: http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...al-thread.html
Btw.. as euphoricmix said it might be your memory, too. You could try knocking it down to 133 (or even 100) and see if that helps it.

I haven't done the mod yet, but this is the type of pen you need.

You can buy the microtip version or the standard tip version. I don't know if one is better than the other to use.
