So what other kinda voltage do I need to push through the NB or what ever to get 3.8ghz stable.
Yeah CD dominates
Thats what I like bout DFI though, if you have the time and patience you can do some great things.
I had a DFI LP UT P35, and it had endless bios tweaks. I had to get rid of it cause I was going mad trying to see where I could take my E6300. Got it up to 3.4GHZ from 1.7GHZ though almost 100% OC , good times
IMO , Just get a nice DDR2 sb750 mobo and save the money for more ram or a video card
ill be on dice hopefully in the next week or so just waiting on my pot
Hav you tried doing higher BUS and lower multi like 18x215 = 3870
What would lowering the multi do? Think it's a chipset limitation?
This is what worked for me on my 940. Also, I suppose we can look forward to benchies on the DICE??
@Shadow - USSR - Nebraska
OK once I get asscreed downloaded I will try doing 215x18
@Shadow - Is your 4th core unlocked? I figure this has been answered earlier in the thread, but I didn't want to scoll. (lazy)
It all depends on the chip see mine likes higher bus and lower multi
also when you start going by the bus keep an eye out on your memory because that gets higher as you go up if it isnt set to Limit in your bios
940 @ 5mhz + 4870x2 OCED + DICE + 1066 Ram = ONE SWEET BENCH!
ill be starting an OC thread called Assassins Dicecapade!
Keep us posted
Nope it didnt work
Nope. Either it's my bios cause it's the latest or it just can't. It's got the right batch(0851, which it either works or it's unstable.)
You should roll back your bios and get that 4th core unleashed!
You should see if CD will trade ya one of his 720's, he has three 0904's. One of which was mine, that did 4.07GHZ on x4 cores.
Well I got 4GB and a 4870 already.
I'll wait until next month, see what AM3 and DDR3 prices have done, see what the job outlook looks like, all that stuff. I may just wait until I nail down a job, probably the smartest thing to do (may be a while )
My batch already unlocks, I just need the right board/bios. I might rollback, but I hate flashing my bios!
I hear the Gigabyte board unlock fairly easily, but that is just the rumor.
Do you bench or game?
If you bench of course the am3 will sound better but if you game i would just stick with what you were thinking of doing
4gb of 800
that would be a nice gaming setup
later on you could get a 2 4870 or sell the one you have and get a 4890
100% agreed. Even go with a 720 and a 4850 if the $$ is tight. I love mine. (both)
I crunch/fold and I game. I don't do much benching because, well, I suck at it
You could give me a chip known to do 4GHz, and I probably couldn't get it there by myself
Just dont do it thru Windows man, if you do your board will probably be laid to Rest.
@JAtownes, Most 790GX boards unlock the 4th core, just gotta roll back the bioses.
As for AM3 boards, i've seen the 790fxt, GD70 unlock them as well.
Thats what we are here for.
I already flashed to the latest using my bootable bios USB stick! It's very handy, haven't had any die on me yet I'm go look at the bios now and get the oldest possible.
IF you hang around here some more you'll catch the OverclockinBench Virus, which has no apperant cure
I know XS had modded bios for MSI 790gx boards in order to unlock the 4th core.
Woot: Just got my 100th Thanks, thanks to all those that thanked me, lol.
i just need some help in getting my 9950 BE 140W to go over 3.2mhz and then i saw that i needed water so i got a wc setup then i hit it i was like YEAAAA
then i moved to the 940 and saw cd hitting really high clocks with dice so i am like yea lets try this out!
next thing you know i will be on LN2
I love this EXPENSIVE yet FUN hobby!
Which should I try?
1.5 has alot of features
give that a go
Make sure to disable cool n quiet
I say 1.3 or 1.4, cause they predate PII's.
