Overclocking Thanks and OC help!
I would also like to thank you for the article: Overclocking is easy! I have read and reread it several times. I am also interested in Overclocking. I have a Pheonix tech Bios version 6.0 09/06/2007. I running Windows XP Pro as my OS.
CPU:Intel Core2 Extreme Q9650 3.0GHZ.
M/B:Abit IP 35 Pro Off Limits!
RAM:4GB OCZ PC6400 (DDR2 800) 188.8.131.52 @2.1Volts.
Video: 2X :Sapphire HD 2600 XT 256MB GDDR4 Mem. X-Fire OC to 845 (800) & 1165 (1100)
PSU: Thermaltake T2 550 Volts
Cooling: V1 Thermaltake for CPU, factory Video cards w/fans & a chassi blower next to each Video card. 3=80mm chassis fans as intakes 1=front 1=top 1=back 1=80mm and 1=120mm side mounted exhaust fans.
Temps CPU 15 Idle, 35 load.
I am currently running @ 3150GHz
Mem: OC and running @ 816
Bios settings are:
Front Side Bus/CPU Frequency=5.25/speed of 2100MHZ
PCI Express Frequency is set per your instructions @ 100PCI Clock Sync: Is UNK?
VCore (CPU Voltage) 1.2575 Droops to 1.038V under load.
Spread Spectrum is not shown in the bios!
Front Side Bus termination voltage is UNK?
ICH Chipset Voltage- AUTO @ 1.05v
I'm currently awaiting delivery of the Gigabyte 3D Galaxy 2 water cooling kit!
Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all for your time and effort!
*Additional*: I recieved the Gigabyte 3D Galaxy 2 yesterday and dove right in! The user manual leaves some things to be desiried but not the worst I have ever read! The installation was pretty straight forward with a dash of common sence added. I oppted not to use the 2 splitter valves, but They would be easy to install should the need arise in the future! When I had finished I did as the manual suggested and rechecked all the hose connections and the hose clamps prior to adding the liquid cooling. I had just enough to fill the tank. I turned my computer on and almost imediatly heard a short beep followed by a long beeb. When windows had finished and the Abit Uguru opened i saw my temp was going from zero to 127C. I shut down and checked the spring loaded screws that are used to hold the water block to the CPU. I found one that was a bit loose, I tightened it and turned the computer on again and that took care of the problem. I now find my computer on booting up to be running a temp. of n/a to 1 Degree C. I ran the Ortho stress test for a little over 20 mins after installation with no problems. Even while running stressed the temp. never exceeded 9 Degrees C. I have since changed the CPU clock from 3.0 to 3.7, I left the Multiplyer @ the default of (9) and my memory which is (800) is now running at 880. I changed the CPU voltage up by one notch and my memory Voltage from 2.1 to 2.2V. Now i'm stuck...I would love dearly to set a new record in PCMark...But i'm going to need some additional help as to where to move my Bios settings and which ones to move!! I would appreciate any input you all may have in this area! Thanks for your time and effort!
