Frustrating x6 overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 47
Thread Starter 
Oops, sorry Sandman. You snuck that in while I was replying to koekmeister. I'll go ahead and change that voltage. As far as the CPU/NB freq, is there any guideline for the setting? I have seen 2x RAM speed and 3x RAM speed. Right now I'm at 2x, but that's just b/c I can't go over 2400 MHz. But I'll try it now with the voltage.

I know the cooler isn't the best, but it works for me. With the Athlon at 3600MHz @1.475v I can't even remember the last time I saw 55C. And I was hitting it pretty hard with rendering/physics, benchmarking, and having a bajillion things going on at once. I did make some shrouding to direct the airflow. I don't know how much it is actually helping, but I do remember the first version I made took 3C off my load temps.

I'd like to keep my 8Gb, cause (see above) I do use it.

My sig IS kinda weak, gimme a sec to fix it.

Well, I tried CPU/NB volts up to 1.45 and freq up to 2800, but I couldn't even get Windows to finish booting.

I figure I can get out the door with a 2500k and mobo for <$450. Anybody know a good mobo I could use with this Thuban for <$150? I think you guys are right about the board, because while the Athlon was great at 3.6, it was a huge PITA to get there. And I've seen those in rare cases go to 4GHz.

I have tried that al as wel, 4Ghz is possible but not on 100% load.

I accepted that it just won't work.
But on the other side i'm happy with 3.75 Ghz

Took a look at it, does look nice. And that will overclock well? I don't want to buy more parts not knowing what I am doing. Like my RAM, lol.
