OC troubles with new Mushkin RAM

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm having some trouble with new RAM I picked up and I'm sorta redoing my OC and I'm failing LinX after like 15 runs and I'm wondering if my PS is off enough to affect overclocking.

It's and older, 600 watt OCZ. My wife has the same one in her machine and if anything I'd swap cause she's running an old 6000+ with onboard video.



Thanks

No issues.

If your that worried, get a volt meter and stick it into the molex connector if your up for the task.

agreed.

Software readings are unreliable, and 3.26v for 3.3v + 4.97v for 5v is spot on and good if that is what it actually is. Power supplies are said to be good if they are within 10% of the voltage they are suppose to be giving, that's more like 1% difference from perfect. Break out the multimeter if you want the facts about the PSU.

5V VCCH is always inaccurate on AMD.
3.3V rail is still within 96.9%, you're good.

Thanks for your help guys, I was really just curious cuz I was a bit clueless as to what the was considered low and too low.

Maybe you guys can give me a hand then with my OC. Previously, I had 1333 Kingston value RAM with my sig rig and these were my Linx/Prime/many bigadv WUs stable settings:

FSB - 272
CPU - 3808 - x14 - 1.475
HT - 1904 - x7
CPUNB - 2720 - 1.300
RAM - 1449 - 9-9-9-24 - 1.710 (from 1.5 ouch)

I went out and got the RAM thats currently in my sig, thinking it was what was limiting me. But I'm having trouble with it now. These sticks are rated 800 7-9-7-24 1.65.

FSB - 285
CPU - 3705 - x13 - 1.475
HT - 1995 - x7
CPUNB - 2565 - x9 and 2850 - x10 1.300
RAM - 1519.05 - 7-9-7-24 - 1.650 and 1.710 (from 1.65)

Can barely pass 15 - 20 mins Linx. Prime BSODed I think too. I was thinking it was a high FSB but checked the thread dedicated to these boards and gappo talks about hitting above 300. I haven't been touching other voltages, but I did read soemthing about using PLL voltage when pushing high FSB. I actually have two, CPU PLL which is at 2.5 I think and HT-SB-NB PLL which is lower. I bumped both by .1 and gained nothing.

I must be lost in terms of timings and stuff, I was able to get my old settings stable except with the lower timings of this ram. But I don't wanna use it underclocked. Help me out here fellas.

The higher x10 NB speed may be choking you here. You may also need to raise the NB voltage for a higher ref. clock/FSB.

Not the CPU-NB right? By how much? I tried +0.1 and still wasn't stable.

NB voltage concerns the chipset; the CPU-NB concerns the IMC and is different. Upping the NB voltage can help with higher ref. clocks but this usually doesn't count until going to, say, 320+. Might help for you.
