Unable to overclock after installing Raid 0

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody, I've tried looking all over but no one seems to have an answer for my particular situation. My computer is as follows:

Phenom II x4 955
ASRock M3A770DE AM3
Radeon HD 6870
4x2 GB-Corsair (1600)
2x WD5000AAKS 7200 (Raid 0)
RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W PSU

I originally built the computer with 1 hdd and later added the 2nd for Raid 0. Before Raid, I was able to overclock to 4.0 GHz on air no problem, after installing the array I can't overclock to 3.21 without the computer freaking. If I do try overclocking (from Bios) immediately after saving the settings the computer will restart and my graphics card fan max's its speed out and I get no video. There are post beeps but they go so fast I cant count them.

I have tried overclocking using many different settings. My usual way is a mix of both multiplier and bus speed. I abandoned the 4.0 GHz and settled for attempting a modest 3.7. I have tried multiple configurations: only multiplier, only bus, both. Of course always asynchronous and enough vcore. I have also tried switching the SATA ports my array are on to see if any of them are "locked" (couldnt find specific documentation).

In the end nothing has worked. I always end up with the same result, the computer will not boot correctly and my gpu fan is going berserk. I end up having to hard-shutdown the computer and clear CMOS. I have even tried using AMD's Overdrive software. I can overclock HOWEVER, the software crashes and messes everything up.

I'm not sure where to go from here, after clearing CMOS and reconfiguring my RAID everything works great, minus the overclock. I am a Folder so the extra clock speed is worth it to me, I just don't know how to get it anymore. Any help will be greatly appreciated. It may be impossible on mu mobo, I'm not sure. Thanks for reading.

check and make sure your pcie and pci if you have it are at 100.

PCI are default and should be locked in asynchronous (SHOULD being the key word there lol) I can't check any values after setting the OC because I can not reach the bios. Still though, with the only multiplier OC it shouldn't effect bus speeds in any way.

You shouldn't anyway
That motherboard, definitely not built for 125W processor OC-ing

It supports 140w, that's plenty considering they are grossly under rated. I ran an unlocked phenom II x2 (125w) on a 90w board over a year.

EDIT: And like I said, it oc'd great before the raid array

well perhaps your saturating your NB?

Meaning?

EDIT: I'm assuming that saturating means overloading/overworking. I doubt that is the case seeing as the mobo supports Raid 10. Thats a total of 4 drives all talking at the same time. Since I only have the two, there should be all kinds of bandwidth left for oc. Maybe bumping the NB voltage would be worthwhile though. I absolutely despise the voltage numbers on this mobo. The bios will show my v-core at like 1.375 but cpu-z says its over 1.41. HUGE DIFFERENCE and most people say you can crank your nb voltage up "near" your v-core but not surpass it. My bios shows my nb-voltage to be like 1.2x or something similar. Its nowhere near my vcore (which is too high for stock clock speeds anyway)

Anybody?
post #9 of 19
is it stable if you oc with the multi and keep the fsb at 200?

if your raid is good at stock speeds, keep it there
blowing up something trying to oc isnt worth your possible data loss on the drives

Won't overclock using any method.
