What's the better way to OC this CPU? (965 BE) - Page 2

Ok well that's the part that confuses me, did you HAVE to up the NB? Does it provide stability to the 4ghz OC or does it just add more of a speed benefit? Also to find 2600mhz, was it a trial and error until you saw your OC stabilize?

But like its already been stated, it depends on what motherboard you're using.

CPUNB max voltage is the same as CPU voltage, but with that said i wouldn't go over 1.5V on thubans because there's no need for it. Denebs however can take some more on the CPUNB and require more voltage for the same clock.


Also to the guy that said you should be able to get 4Ghz at no more then 1.5V ... For thubans this is true but not for denebs. Pretty much all denebs require ~1.5V or more for 4Ghz stable.

ok but to answer my question, Gen's frequencies to get to 4.0ghz, was 200 fsb, 20.0 multiplier, and 1.5 vcore. Then he said he up'd the NB to 2600mhz @ 1.24. I don't understand where the NB comes in to play with this? Did he have to up the NB to maintain stability? Was it a trial and error thing to find the highest stable NB frequency?

I noticed that 4ghz stable is about 1.488V can't seem to get it lower. I'm running stable at 4ghz, 2600 MHz nb, 1600 9-9-9-24 at 1T RAM. Trying to get a 3ghz nb there should be a significant t performance boost.
