No worries mate. I got my answers Just a question regarding that cpu oc. Have you raised the NB voltages properly? Worth trying to raise that one a notch, if you havent already tried it.
Thread is yours;
hmm, not sure about the options with my mobo. I mean I changed one of the voltages, but, I don't have a ton of options, mostly fsb, multipliers for cpu, ram, maybe 5 voltage options and that's it
I used to get it to 3Ghz easy. I did a 14hr prime run when I built this rig(3 year old now ) on the same settings(as I recall) and temps were at 65C back then and it was rock solid(ram at 833mhz), so, not sure what changed. I'll have to take a second look at the other 4 options, but, the temps are pretty high as is. Would it be wise to raise the voltages more?
Edit: Found pics:
There are also FSB, DDR2, PCI-E and MCH(?) aside from the system voltage which I have at 1.650 or so.
Edit2: Here's the odd part:
Running 2 instances of orthos, now 21+ min testing cpu with gromacs code. No issues, errors, etc.... at the same voltage and everything that caused the error before at 18min in. The voltage according to cpuz is fluctuating from 1.184V-1.250V or so.
