Input on Overclocks (Phenom II X2 555)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought a new computer in February, and never got around to pushing it past the burn in stage. I got a new video card for Christmas and figured it was about time. So, I spent most of the day today messing with timings and stuff, so here is what I have.. (Hardware in Sig) (the TEST/STAB is just for my reference)

I hit 4.0ghz on air, so I feel like i am on the right track. It lasted about 25min in prime95 before it rebooted. Right now I am using STA10 as my stable. I would really like to get it around 3.60ghz so I don't have to up the vcore any (will not boot with 230mhz clock without VCore boost). Anyone have another possible combination for stable settings? Also, how about a config to run @ 4.0ghz stable. Thanks in advance.

The only way to get it up to 4.0GHz would be to raise the Vcore, unless you're lucky enough to have a golden chip. And that would be as dual core without unlocking any extra cores. Unlocked 555's tend to take more voltage to be stable as well.
I'm able to get my 555 x2 BE up to 4043MHz with 1.475v and stable with 24 hrs of prime95 and a max loaded temp of 38c.

Thanks for the input guys. I plan on keeping it as a dual core just because I like to be able to monitor my temps, and I don't do anything that requires a ton of CPU horsepower. I just wanted to see what the benches would be on a dual vs quad. I am pretty sure only the 3rd core on my chip is good anyway. I tested with prime95 when i got it one core always errored out.

Now I am trying to find my ideal stable. Do you think the ram timings can be pushed anymore? The JEDEC3 for my Ram is 609mhz @ 8-8-8-22-31, and right now im running it at 766.6mhz. My JEDEC2 shows 533mhz @ 7-7-7-20-27, but I have not been able to get those settings to boot.

I think I need to get the CPU as close to 3.6ghz with the highest possible FSB, under 230mhz. When just setting it 200x18 I can boot without a vcore boost.

Im going to try 225*16 @ 750MHZ @ 8-8-8-22-31-2 and see how it works.

Also, I did not adjust my northbridge or hypertransport, should I?

So I have found my stable OC to be..

CPU = 220x16.5 = 2.63GHz @ 1.275V
Bus Speed = 220mhz
HT Link = 2200mhz
NB Freq: 2200mhz
RAM: 733mhz @ 8-8-8-22-31-2T (Unganged)
Temp: 23.5C idle - 34.5C 100% load.

Again, I have to pose the question, Should I adjust my HT/NB freqs? I am pretty sure i tried setting them both to 2000mhz in bios, but it did not make a difference in windows, it still showed as 2200mhz. Also im presented with an option to edit the PCIe speed, any benefit to adjusting this as well? Thanks in advance.

First off, i would read up the affects of adjusting PCI-e speeds will have on your specific VID card. As for the H/T link and N/B speeds. Keep the H/T link speeds under 2200, It's not going to give much of a performance gain, and will cause instability. The N/B speed on the other hand will give you a considerable difference. If the revision on your chip is a C3, You will cap off around 2800. The C2's were around 2600. Remember you will need to add voltage to the N/B, and a touch to the H/T link.
If you need any more help, since i have the same chip, feel free to PM me.
