So frustrated... 4.0 help

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Just installed my water cooler and wanted to push my machine again.. thought That I was stable at 4.2 but now im finding that 4.0 isn't even stable after 30 min... currently running 20x200, 1.55 CPU VID, NB @ 2400 @ CPU NB VID 1.3, ram @ 1.55v... HTLINK @ 2000... Sorry I can get screen shots later if wanted... just trying to stress test it currently and getting frustrated. Please give me suggestions if you have any. Thanks in advance, +Rep for help Also my current temps don't get above 39C core

Here are some screens, Looking for help still.

My voltages are as follows, DRAM:1.55, NB 1.15, HTLINK 1.2, CPUNB 1.4, CPU VOLT,1.525. My max temps are 41C@4.0 but dumps physical memory after 10 min small FFT.

Last stable,

You can try slowing the ram a bit and then tighten up the timings...also make sure you did not accidentally enable cool n quiet. But then again that does not explain why you can't get back to your original 4.2ghz...u sure u stress tested enough @ 4.2ghz before your new cooler? cause the same settings should work...also dont look at the cpu temp, you need to look at the cpu core temps...those sometimes give a big difference compared to the cpu temp

I use the core temps not the CPU temps... I wasn't stable at 4.2, I passed 15 min of small FFT to find that It immediately failed Blend. and it failed blend all the way back to 3.9. I played with some settings and found that my NB frequency is the most stable at 2200, If I back off the speed of the ram, how do I know what to set the timings too? I've never messed with timings...

Is there any reason that my chip wouldnt be able to hit 4.0 if the temps are as cool as they are? Thought that I'd be able to hit 4.0 on any 965 if it was water cooled...

Its not always how cold your cpu is, it depends on your ram and your nb also. My recommendation would be to see if you can lower the frequency on your ram first and see if that helps your 4.0 stability and if that doesnt work try down clocking your nb.

Ok, I down clocked my memory and its stable @ 4.0. Heres a screen shot and please give suggestions if I can push anything further... My temps are still pretty low, kinda disappointed in my NB clock, but it does not like going further... Also My memory timings I would like suggestions on, I havn't touched them, don't know anything about adjusting timings.

Dont be disappointed with the nb speeds once you dont drop well below 2000 u would not notice a big performance hit 1800 is fine...i had to go to 1700 to get to 4ghz and i did not notice a big drop in performance remember your gaining clock speed....one other thing to try to go higher is to set your memory command rate (CR) from 1T to 2T that should help with higher clock speeds, and just remember the higher clocks you go bring back down the memory speeds and tighten the timings...as a rule of thumb...the slower the memory the tighter the timings, the faster the ram speed in mhz the looser the memory timings

EDIT: sorry for all the jumbled writing but im using my cell phone to right this...

Here is a good article about Ram timings...this is where i learned from
