POOR (1st) overclocking

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My X2 3800 can't even get to 2.1GHz without crashing after 2 minutes.

What's the problem?

Also, when RAM is set to CL2 TRP3 TRCD3 CMD1T it runs just slower and USB stops working after ~15mins. (Maybe unrelated tho)

Default Vcore is 1.4V I set it to 1.450 to use 2100MHz and it didn't work as excepted.

One strange thing also is the HT Link Speed setting which cen be set to either Auto or 200MHz, while the manual states Auto and 800-1000MHz.

Mem is at 2.6v / default.

Strange... Other persons with same mobo / CPU / RAM can get to 2.3GHz...

And when everything is at stock / default speeds, there are sudden lags ONLY in games.

I am (kinda) having that same problem. Idk what it is.

The only common thing is that we have a WD HDD and stock cooling, but my rock solid(And I MEAN it) Athlon XP 2000+ works like a charm with a WD Caviar SE SATA 80GB.

The sudden lags are looong, the HDD starts seeking like mad and everything is so slow that the reset button is the only option...

That will drive some crazy at first
The RAM's HT multiplyer effects that 800-1000MHz perameter.
Default 5x200=100
Upping the bus beyond 200-250 requires dropping the RAM's HT multiplyer to 4x, beyond 250 use 3x.

Increasing the vdimm will help the RAM speed increase some as will loostening the timings. 2.8v should be safe.
Yo may also need a little more vcore for the CPU but do watch the full load temps max is 50c.
OCCT will help you quickly full load the CPU and test the system for stability.

2.8v? It seems a bit high. It's almost the highest voltage of the mobo.

1.55v is OK?

It only took 1-2 minutes before getting a CPU error! I was watching MSI CoreCenter and once it reached 48-50*C, I got some errors.

Next attempt was at stock speeds with 2-3-3-6-1T timings at 2.7V with VCore at 1.55v. Once CoreCenter displayed 48*C, I got an other error.

I also seem to have much higher temps than a lot of other persons here.

Looks like 1 of 2 things here re: the temps.
1. Either try AS5 on the stock HD for about 3-5°c drop after the stuff cures or..
2. Get a TT Big Typhoon and the AS5 compound.
Also... if needed/possible, improve the case air flow and you may wnat to up the memory controler voltage along with the chipset voltage.

Chipset voltage ... I didn't touch this one...

Upping can provide more stability. Try 1 notch first and only increase as needed. Some have found no improvemen increasing it, but most do!

Done some testing in OCCT,

The only thing that seems to change something with the torture test time is the FSB. No matter what voltage I choose, at 200MHz, it runs 3½min. At 205MHz, 1½min and at 210MHz, 40secs.

Gotta have to see but the VCore voltage in AMD Power Monitor is 1.35 while it's 1.65 in Core Center...

Updates : Torture test ended at 2min40 - > everything stock. It ran at 42*C during all the test.

My advice with the board is to find the thermal-throttling and turn it off in the bios...and can you post a screen shot of your Core Center
