Raising Reference Clock

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, recently I have been trying to push my 965 BE further. I have been using a 235 x 17 but after reading i found that people have been getting their reference clocks much higher. Any tips on hitting a 4 GHz OC with 250 x 16

CPU v = 1.5v
NB v = 1.415v
CPU/HT ref = 250
NB FID = x10 (won't boot unless this multiplier. maybe someone has info on that?)
CPU Multi = x16
All RAM settings are at Auto

Computer Boots with current settings but cores fail quickly in Prime95.

Any tips for stabilizing the setup?

Hey and welcome to OCN

Please fill in you`re sig rig info in user cp link on top of this site. Will help us, help U a lot better

Have U tried OC through multi only? That is the easiest way but there are no "problem" oc through the reference clock. I belive Ur nb volt is a little high. Dont think U need 1.415v. U might want to raise Ur cpu/nb volt a tad or two. Whats Ur NB freq? And cpu/nb volt?

Temps are U getting @ full load etc. We need a little more info to help out

Hey thanks for the welcome. I have OCed with the multi only and gotten 4.0 GHz but I was looking for a more system wide OC with the reference clock. I also dropped the NB v back to 1.1v and it started fine. My BIOS sucks and it doesnt have CPU-NB VID so I thought the NB VID was the only option.

Thanks for the reply. I filled in some system information. I was also reading around that I should be keeping the HT FID at 2 GHz. So I tried that and I'm running Prime 95 with 8 x 250 and so far so good. The only questionable thing I had to do is unlock my RAM so that it runs at a 1:2 ratio with tighter timings. Is this a good idea? or should I be focused on running at stock 667 MHz instaed of 500 MHz? My NB FID is 2500MHz

Thx

If I was U I would have gone with the 1333 and oc it a little via the fsb(19.5multix205fsb) and so on. And when Ur satified with Ur overall Oc, U can try tithening timings. Strange that U dont have any volt control for Ur cpu/nb. Could U post a pic of ur bios where u change the vcore and nb volt etc?


EDIT:I`ve been looking around for some pics of Ur bios, but I have only found one that might be helpfull. U got an option that says voltage function. Is this enabled? if it is or not can U enable and post pic of what functions U get to adjust?
