Help Pushing Athlon II 245 3.6Ghz+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright, so for some months now I have been slowly tweaking my CPU, and so far it has gone perfectly! Temps staying around 40C Full load for a 24 Hour Prime 95 run. Today I thought I would take a crack at 3.7Ghz wall. Like the noob I am, I just put the bus speed up to 256 with a multi of 14.5, it gave me a clock just around 3.71Ghz. I then took it upon myself to increase the ram timings, and adjust the CPU voltage up to 1.44 from 1.43. Booted up, started up prime95 blend test, and 3 minutes into it, the computer BSOD. Which, I was expecting from my first try at 3.7. So after about an hour of tweaking voltage, timings, multi, frequencies on the Bus and the HT link. I gave up.
So, does anyone have any advice you could give me on what I am doing wrong with my current overclock, and what can I do to read 3.7Ghz? http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1697981 <---Validation for CPU-z, I have tested my current CPU overclock for stability.

Start lower, and slowly increase the voltage and the clocks. That's my best advice.

You probably need more vcore, I have my little old 245 @ 3.9Ghz using 1.52v/ 2.7Ghz on the NB and a HT of 2150Mhz. If the temps are good go for 1.5v for 3.8Ghz/ 2.6Ghz NB.

The 1.5 voltage is stable! So far at least, thank you for saving me a large amount of time to get there. Temps are also good, Tomorrow I will know for sure. Side note: I love this forum!
