CANNOT GET Phenom II x2 555 to 4.0GHz??

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Hello friends. I am in despair. I have tried EVERYTHING in my knowledge (which I will admit may be limited) to try and get this chip to 4.0 GHz. I can succesfully get it to 3.9097GHz stable @ 1.4v vcore (19.5x200MHz). But as soon as I move that clock multiplyer up 0.5, the OC crashes 5 or seconds into a Cinebench CPU test. No amount of voltage tweaks have been able to stablize it (from 1.3-1.55v).

I am stumped and do not know where to go from here.

Some may say that I should be happy with a 3.9GHz.....No Sir. My e-peen definatly needs the extra boost. Please help me.

Award BIOS F3 (All other specs are in the sig.)

Tried a multiplier and fsb combo? Maybe your board doesn't like high multipliers.

...at this point, start bumping up the FSB. Just OC'ing with the multiplier is technically not correct, as now all the other components of the board are not in sync with the CPU. 206 on the FSB will get you to 4.017 GHz

I tried 19.5x206 and it wouldnt even get into windows. also tried 215x19 and it crashes within 15 seconds of Cinebench. If I change that do I need to bring up the voltage on anything else more?

Thanks guys.

Right now I am using the stock cooler and am getting 32C Idle and 55C Full Burn

I don't think you mentioned what you've tried in terms of CPU-NB voltage. Have you tried upping that one as well?

Are you OCing anything other than the CPU?

What happens at 1.55 volts?

I havent upped the CPU-NB more than +.050v to 1.2230v. Could this be the problem?
