So far i'm to 3.94ghz. however, when i tried to go earlier, i corrupted a system file and had to reinstall, enterprise (i think) said to make sure to lock my PCI bus as that would keep that from happening. However, in my BIOS i can't find an option to do that. i can find a PCI-e frequency which is set to 100. help please? (cpuzvalidation coming)<br><br><a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=136134" target="_blank">http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc?id=136134</a>

When you lock the PCI-E bus (set to 100MHz), the PCI bus is also locked.<br><br>
For some reason, in some cases setting it exactly at 100MHz gives some issues (at least with my MoBo.) So I set mine at 101MHz <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

hmm..i also disabled (so it wouldn't adjust) something that said it messed with the PCI-e frequency, so i think that's helping. along with some more volts, i'm now at...<br>
3969mhz<br>
FSB:RAM- 1:1(233.5)<br>
vcore- 1.408v<br>
Mem:<br>
2.0v<br>

Odd thing though, while testing, the cpu never got very much load, but the pagefile use was way up there. and it didn't get very far in the test. Temps didn't go very high either.

Which test did you run in Prime? If you did blend, not a good idea.... esp. if it starts using the page file.... that's tough on your hard drives! At least you know now that these work fine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
You need to run the 'In-Place Large FFTs' test... that gives the CPU it's workout while leaving RAM alone mostly.

alright, i'll do that while i'm at school. i should be getting dressed right now.<br><br>
you ruined my fun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown"><br>
I got this error after three minutes, what's the best way to stabilize it more so this error doesn't occur?<br><img alt="" src="http://rigshowcase.com/img/293LTY9V/7557.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
i'll just let it sit here with no prime95 until i get back from school. (12 hours)

Bump<br><br>
Anyone know whether that is a memory or cpu problem?<br>
as in should i:<br>
put more voltage into the CPU<br>
loosen the timings on the ram<br>
increase the ram frequency<br>
put more voltage into the RAM.<br>
?

I think your RAM is just fine, since it passes the other test...<br><br>
A little extra voltage on the PCU might help you out here. Or maybe a bit extra on the northbridge, if that's an option

</div>alright, i booted up with a little more voltage on the CPU, and the north bridge is a max voltage i'm pretty sure. so i'll run Prime95 when i'm done writing these two stupid essays.

bumppity bump.<br />
<br />
What i did was run stability tests, and if they failed after no matter how long (if it was longer than 6 hours, i still didn't care, i want a 24/7OC). So i finally had to take it down to 3925mhz where it went for 9 hours without error. <br />
Load temp is 55*c, idle is around 40-43.<br />
