AMD Overclock fail. - Page 4

post #31 of 47
the max temps are referring to the cpu socket temp, not core temps. Core temps for amd cpu's isn't even a real temp value. It's something called tctl which takes voltage, load, clock frequency, and other values and uses a formula to determine the number. It's just an arbitrary temp scale that has no actual correlation to cpu temps, it is what the computer uses to determine and control the cooling.

So I am in the clear right?

np, I was confused about which to worry about as well till I did some reading around. If you wan't to figure out more about tctl you can read about it in the support docs. http://support.amd.com/us/Processor_TechDocs/41256.pdf

Read it, that deserves +rep! Thanks for the read. It does seem like the core temps on CPUID hardwaremonitor are relative to maximum cooling needed and the CPU temp is the one that really matters.

955's are a ***** to get stable 4GHz. I say put it to 3.9 and be satisfied.

4) CPU/NB voltage max 1.45v. This the voltage for NB Frequency.
5) Keep HT around 2000.
6) Keep memory close or under to stock speed.
Weren't you telling me that 1.55v on the CPU NB was safe like a week ago?

Well right now its at 4GHz stable, but my NB is only at 2000.

What are your multiplier and bus freq settings? As well as your NB and NB voltage? Ill give it a try and see how it goes.

SUCCESS!!!!

Alright guys, after playing around with the settings a little and reading some more threads. I lowered my multiplier and upped my Bus Freq to get 3.9GHZ STABLE at 2700 NB!!!

CPU: 3.9GHz
CPU Volts: 1.45V
RAM: 1500MHz
RAM Volts: 1.45
NB: 2700
NB Volts: 1.40
HT:2000

I want to THANK EVERYONE that helped me out in this thread without you guys I'd still be on a measly 3.2GHz right now. And want to thank OCN because without this community I would have bought a HP branded computer and my mom for giving me birth so that I can witness this achievement.


What a great way to start off the New Years wahooo!


I am going to try and up the bus freq a little more to get 4.0GHz!

Okay, so my A643000 + system occasionally emits this sound like a Wire is touching a spinning. After makig this point, it stops. I really do not know how to say this, but I am quite sure there is no.In fact, any wire fans. So anyway, when it began to sound today, I restart Around then, when the trend of the U.S. logo that I Was told that overclocking failed.
