Q8300 Wall?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I was re-ocing my CPU, because for some reason the board reset itself, and I hit a wall at 3 Ghz. I've tried upping the vcore, NB, RAM, underclocking the RAM, overclocking by small increments, everything. No matter what, the computer just won't post after 3 Ghz.



That's my current settings. What's going on here?

What were the NB and HT voltages when you ran 3.5?

NB: 1.4v was the highest I tested, and it still didn't boot. HT: 1.24v was my test highest.

That HT sounds way to low, I run at 1.38 24/7. Try the NB and HT at 1.38 and see if that allows you to break 3ghz.

I'll test that later tonight, thanks! But what exactly does the HTT voltage do? I thought it wasn't too important, hence the reason it's so low.
