Need help with this OC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok well since my roomhs ambient temps aren't the best i wanted to keep this oc at the lowest voltage possible.I settled on 217 fsb x 18.0 = 3.9ghz and i'm happy with that so i played with voltages and my nb i kept at 2600mhz and thought i actually had stability at stock voltage for everything. played 2 hrs of a game all fine. but as soon as i closed the game. bsod. the 217 fsb puts my ram at 870mhz and i kept the voltage stock for that too. i heard that nb can go to 2600mhz on stock voltage i'm thinkin it's either my cpu vcore being 2 low(stock voltage is 1.4v) i'm just going to bump it up to 1.42 and see how that goes. What i am not sure about is the ram voltage. The only choice in bios is DRAM voltage and 1.5 is stock. but i can only increase in intervals of .2 (1.52. 1.54. 1.56. etc etc) however when i scroll down to 1.64v its red and flashing as if it's telling me to not go that high.but i hear people saying their ram is at 1.8v so im not sure what caused the bsod. also. if i was to raise nb voltage if i need to stabilize the 2600mhz do i change cpu/nb or just nb voltage which by default is 1.1v

Dont mess with the ram or NB voltage, I'd just leave them stock for now. How are your temps? If you have some headroom definitely turn up te voltage a notch and try a stability test (Prime 95/linpack etc)

Lower your ram below the rated 1600mhz to 1333mhz that way you wont have it bumping past your 1600mhz with stock timings when you change your FSB. Work on one thing at a time or you'll get BSOD all day long and wont know what's causing it.

is it c2 or c3 ? a c2 chip is going to be a btch trying to get the nb running at 2821. on stock volts its hard to get on a c3.
bump your ram volts up to 1.6 ddr3 ram is dirt cheap right now. lol
