A 3700+ at 2.90 and at 1.41v

post #1 of 16

Well I wanted to see how low I could get the voltage and still stay above 2.9ghz
It ran prime95 for just over 4 hours, so I was happy with that, plus I was folding at the same time. I'm not sure if my memory caused the error or not but I think I'm going to change the timmings and give it another try. I know 4 hours is not too long, but thats not bad is it? I'm glade it at least booted.

Mine needs at least 1.6V to get to 2.9GHz. You have a nice chip there. Personally I don't claim stability without at least 20hrs. in Prime. Had overclocks crap out on me even after 9hrs. in Prime.

and how about the pci / pciXpress multiplier / clocks...I blew out a audigy4 and all my pci slots on my asus a8n sli nforce 4 with amd643800+, corsair xms 4400 cl 2.5 watercooled
didnt change pciXpress clock but ran with 2618mhz 11xmultiplier 4x htt 238 fsb 476 mem when it happened
but it also ran on 250 4x htt fsb10 x multiplier 2500mhz 142.50v 500mhz 2.8v mem power supplie tagan tg420-uo1 for a long time always stable i can only use onboard devices now.... the sensor on my asus eax800xl gpu only stays at 51c, even after installing smartdoctor 480, i can only view mem temp, i have already fitted a new a8r mvp radeon xpress200 mobo but it stays the same, i swapped my audigy4 for a new one because the other one died,
i dont dare to oc again afraid its gonna cost me some more...help....Greetz and thankz RuSo

Sounds like the pci speeds weren't locked if they blow out your sound card.

I would take the vcore high enough to ensure a stable 12 hour prime95 testing, an OCCT stress testing.

There is absolutely no need to give a processor more voltage than it requires to perform with stability. If the processor is fundamentally as stable at 1.4V as it is at 1.55V then there is no use logical reason to raise it to 1.55V.

One can NOT (with common sense) try to take the "Science" and "ART" of overclocking and turn it into a "One Size Fits All" philosophy.

Its been stable for 16+ hours at 2.97 at 1.48v. I wasn't trying to see my max overclock, just trying to see the lowest voltage possible at 2.9 since mine seems to enjoy lower voltage. I think I need to lossen timming since they started giving errors in memtest. 1.5-2-2-0 must of just been a bit too tight.
