Hey guys, I am working on overclocking this system (signature). I ran prime 95 stock for 2 hours to determine stability. I am a rookie overclocker, my last time overclocking was my 939 Clawhammer back in 2008. If what I says is incorrect or doesn't make sense call me out on it because I really don't have a clue what I am doing. edit: Found this guide that has helped me immensely http://www.overclockers.com/step-guide-overclock-amd-phenom/ Heres my baseline (stock settings, no overclock) 3dmark11 score I then ran 20x multiplier (stock 17x) and 4ghz (stock 3.4ghz) Core Temp 56-58 degrees (rule of thumb is do not exceed 62) Stock voltage 6 hours into Prime 95 Small FFT (CPU Intensive). System randomly rebooted after that, not sure why as I was asleep. I then ran a multiplier of 17.5x and fsb of 220 3.85ghz for 5 hours no issues small FFT. I made some adjustments. I lowered the multiplier back to 17x and raised the front side bus from 200 mhz to 235mhz giving me a clock speed of 3.995ghz. Ram speed is overclocked by this to 470 (1:2 ratio,2x) so as I understand it my stock ram speed is 1332, my current ram speed is 1880mhz (470*2*2). I ran memtest86 4 instances each with 4 gigs of ram (quad core *4 = 16gb total ram) for 20 mins with no errors shown. I guess the ram is stable. Its really overclocked because the timing is now 6-6-6-15-20 2T, 470mhz DRAM Frequency. Now I am running the prime 95 blend torture test for an hour to see if it likes it. If so I'll try bumping the fsb again and see if it can go to 4.1ghz. Interestingly enough it runs cooler with fsb bump rather than multiplier bump, I am at 55-56* C core (Down from 58* C). Not sure why, maybe thermal paste maturity, ambient room temp? I tried voltage adjustments but got worse performance with voltage +, I dont see a reason to volt down if the temp is still 6* under the recommended maximum.
