Formula IV and 965BE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
System specs in rig.

Here is my issue, I am not used to this BIOS AT ALL!
It seems more difficult to manually oc on this than ever since all the features are made so it does the OCing for you. I did manage 4.1 and 4.2 stable using the utility that came with the mobo, but would like to do a proper 4.0 24/7 OC with this.

I know a lot of you have this board and a lot also have the same combo, so please help me out here.

How do I go about doing the OC in BIOS and the TurboV not interfering with it? Whats the numbers I should shoot for?

I just want a super stable 4GH to game with

Currently running at 4.2, but I figure I would drop it down to 4.0 and then OC my ram a little bit.

Thanks in advance

Bah, nevermind, I am stupid.

I just used the settings that TurboV gave me and tweaked them a little in BIOS.

I made sure to shut my window (since it's cold out) and go my heater running to get the room temp to ~75 since thats what my house is at in the summer.

4.1GHZ @ 1.368V

Currently running prime with max heat test and after 10 minutes of running the highest temp it has seen is 45C, though now it just seems to be bouncing between 43 and 45. Will keep it running for a few hours, but I think I should be good to go here.

nice overclock so far. make sure you pull the cpu-nb as high as you can. 2400ghz to 2800ghz is pretty much the max for the denab. voltage for the cpu-nb should be around 1.35volts to 1.4volts. enable LLC on full calibration. this feature will add .05 volts for the cpu voltage and .03 volts for the cpu-nb. start small and work your way up on the voltage. make sure temps stay at 55c and under. the lower the better.

I can run Prime95 at 4.1GHz and 1.35v without any errors for 12 hours, but as soon as I run COD Black Ops, it will freeze. Keep in mind that you may need some extra voltage in order to keep the system running properly, even though it is "stable."

this might help out a bit. for the 965...i think you should start with 1.40 volts for the cpu in the bios with LLC enable and work your way up slowly.
