Hey guys.<br />
<br />
I just recived muffins 3700+ and Its stable @ 3ghz WoooooHooooooo <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> <br />
<br />
<a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=131481" target="_blank">http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=131481</a><br />
<br />
It could possibly go higher with better ram as I am using my backup single channel DRR400's just now <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
<b><u>Temps</u></b><br />
Idle temp - 32c<br />
Load temp - 42c<br />
NF4 Chipset - 46c (Its very hot im going to set up some fans around it)<br />
<br />
<b><u>Voltages</u></b><br />
<br />
Vcore - 1.58v (bios says 1.6v) <br />
Chipset 1.50v (cant go higher gets to hot)<br />
<br />
For some reason I can run 300*10 it has to be 275*11 <img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /> Maybe something to with the ram(its running on a 7/10 Divider)

I've said this before, RAM in no way limits the CPU's potential. That's about what he reached with it. Good RAM only gives you better performance at a given CPU speed, not higher CPU speeds.

</div>So what would be stopping me using 300Mhz on this board? Chipset temps?<br />
<br />
In reviews It has reached 360Mhz +

</div>Reaching 300FSB, maybe. 46C is fine for a chipset, it's like a CPU, keep it below 50. I'd suggest running a more aggressive divider, and shooting for 300 x 10 again. That's what I'm running right now.

What Divider do you reccomend - remeber im using some crappy kingston + unnamed ram cause my XMS is dead <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" />

As low as it takes. At 300, probably a 2/3. (6/9 or 6/10, can't remember the Divider options at the moment)

2:3 then. That will keep the RAM running at stock speed (assuming it's PC3200), and have your HTT at 300.

Weird, I've had kindof the same problem with my cpu, it seems to hate anything other than 11x. I have to go 11x whatever, I've tried 10x 200-300 and it only likes 11x 200 up to 255. So 2805mhz for me.<br />
<br />
I was suspecting it may have been the motherboard, but I'm not quite sure what the problem is, I've learned to live with the 11 multi.

</div>Yeah its DDR400 PC3200<br />
<br />
Should I keep my HTT Multi @ 3x?

300 x 3 = 900, sounds good to me. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

No luck <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
It wont take 300Mhz for some reason - I might leave the AS5 a couple of days to burn in and put some AS5 on the Chipset aswell?

Set your RAM to 2:3 (133) and leave all the options in the RAM setup as they default to.<br />
<br />
<b>FSB Bus Frequency: 300<br />
LDT/FSB Frequency Ratio: x 3.0<br />
LDT Bus Width: 16 16<br />
CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio: x 10.0</b><br />
PCI Express Frequency: 100MHz<br />
K8 Cool n Quiet Support: Disable<br />
<br />
<b>CPU VID Startup Value: 1.425V<br />
<br />
CPU VID Control: 1.475V<br />
CPU VID Control Special: 110%<br />
LDT Voltage Control: 1.40V<br />
Chipset Voltage Control: 1.70V<br />
DRAM Voltage Control: 2.70V</b> (what is the deafult voltage of your RAM? Leave it at the default)<br />
<b>DRAM +.03V if its not 3.2V: Disable</b>

<br />
I will post results <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />

For some reason my temps have jumped.<br />
<br />
They are 36c Idle and 48c When Folding <img src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Confused" class="inlineimg" /> They jump up to 46c from 36c in about 3secs <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" />

</div>It's the motherboard that has problems with high HTT, not the CPU.

939 MB are funny, most can do the HTT @ 1080 where the wall is, some others can get above that. Whether it can do it stable is left to the OCer to find.

Have you tried raising your DIMM voltage? Sorry if you have, I dont think I saw it anywhere in this thread though. I know that my RAM, even while on a divider, it either won't boot or OCCT will fail in about two minutes unless I raise the voltage.
