post #11 of 35
sir, after reading your questions it seems you are very lost. for your own sake, i recommend you go on google and look at the theory and basics of overclocking.

an overclock of 3.5ghz is very conservative. but even at 3.5ghz, it can still fail. what is your voltage at for your cpu?

because you said that HT is 2000 (keep it around there) and your northbridge is still at 2000, and your overclock @ 3.5 is very conservative, my guess is that you are not supplying enough voltage.

Hey spice, I left all the voltages at the stock "auto". I'm starting to see the picture, but still don't understand some things... The CPU needs more juice and that's why it's failing?
CPU-Z says voltage is at 1.216V.

Tried it at 1.375....same thing.
Tried it at 1.4 same thing..
Finally at 1.45....... ......same thing.

Theoretically a 3.5Ghz CPU speed, 2000mhz NB, 2000mhz HT link with memory at 1333mhz sounds stable.. But I think my BIOS seems to think otherwise. I boot, I see the motherboard bios picture, then it goes to a boot screen that says "System has failed to boot because of overclocking. Press del to enter BIOS [which has CPU freq automatically set back to 200], or any key to continue."

THIS IS DRIVING ME NUTS!

Make sure your ram is at stock timings as mine decided to put mine alot tighter than what they should be

up your CPUNB a bit (cant recall off the top of my head mine)
My vcore is 1.376 in windows (Auto in bios)

Hey norse, I checked the RAM timings and I left them running at auto, which means BIOS judges the best parameters. apparently not. So I took it off auto and put it to manual, but left all the settings at stock. Still no luck. I don't know enough about timings to make the correct adjustments.

I read this guidehttp://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/26
and this guide http://www.overclock.net/faqs/26706-...s-dummies.html

Any others I should know about?
And well, if it isn't my voltage, then it's my RAM timing? What else could be causing this "boot failure". Or is it really not failing boot but my BIOS just doesnt want me OC'ing????

Have you tried flashing the bios on the board to the newest one out?
after a little research it only has 2 bioses out atm f6 and f7.
And the board is made for dual channel ram but that shouldnt matter

as a reference i have a gigabyte board for 3.5
250x14
2000 ht
2000 nb
all volts left to auto
memory set to 1600
default timings
cpu vcore auto is 1.375

next question its only 1 chip of ram, or is it just single channel, cause if its single channel it has to be in sertain slots to my understanding from my manual

after you hit manual you still have to change the timings as it will just leave them to w/e the auto setting was. 9-9-9-24-2t is what they should be set at, also you might wanna un auto the voltage. And raise the memory voltage cause i think auto puts it at 1.5 and they need 1.6-1.65 dep on if you have 1 or 2 ram sticks. Hope this helps

AHA! Alas, solar, we might be onto something. Latest BIOS for my mobo is f7.. mine is F6 :O


I'll give it a try.

Edit: Bios successfully flashed from F6 to F7. Still, no difference in overclocking. I tried raising CPU frequency ALONE to see where it would give. Got it to 210x14=2.9Ghz. Worked normally. Then tried 220x14=3.0Ghz, and I got Blue screen of death. ARGGGHHHHH

It's single channel corsair DDR3 PC10666 1333mhz. I don't know if I should raise it to 1600mhz and apply the settings you suggested. But what I don't understand is when I raise the CPU frequency, it raises my ram speed. But then I lower my ram speed by lowering the memory clock to x5.33, which gives me 1332mhz. So do I have to adjust my timings for a change in the memory clock? Or power (voltage) to accommodate final memory speed if raised higher than 1333mhz?

there rated at 1.6 or 1.65 volts and 9-9-9-24-2t at 1333 mhz
is it 2x2 gigs or 1x 4 gigs?
and youll keep getting a bsod untill you change the timings to spec i posted above

What
NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

If generic 1333 CL9 timings do not work at 1.5V (or are not rated at 1.5V), either exchange/return or RMA the memory. Seriously, requiring more than 1.5V for timings/speeds that are specced by JEDEC to run at 1.5V and no higher is inexcusable and unacceptable. If it can't work at 1.5V, it's DOA.
