Ok I was asking after I seen your system spec's.... You have a Bio-star 790fx mobo..... I got my crap mixed up... you need the 750SB and up for ACC.... my bad :slap:
here look at this....

Na just around 1.4850 is about tops. So yeah more less.... Kinda reminds me of an ol black duo core amd chip I had...3.2GHz stock and around 3.5 o/c'd....... It would clock ok at a higher volt but found that by dropping it down lower I could clock higher and keep everything stable....weird but it worked :rolleyes:

cool... that's what im going to try to find.... The sweet spot!!! I more less have this cpu figured out totally at current settings, but now need to find that magical number :banghead:

go for 4 ghz, the voltage that hold the longest until crashing, should be the best (do 3 tries per voltage,to eliminate random crashes). wasnt to problematic with this baby here;)

Okay so i havnt been in the club in a few months maybe even more but I have now purchased a ASUS M4A79XTD EVO motherboard and some Corsair DDR3, XMS3 9-9-9-20 1.6v 4gb but single sticks.

Nice new kit but the mobo options for ram are confusing to say the least.

I havnt clocked the CPU yet just at stock but i expect to get a better stable voltage on at least 3.6ghz because my old board although it could clock it had a jump in voltage from 3.4-3.6ghz massive like a whole 0.1v jump or close to that. The new board has better voltage regulation and that.

Boots faster but hangs a bit like i will go to move an icon and it will hang for a few secs i dunno what it is, havnt done any intensive apps yet just normal surfing and media.

BTW off topic but the VIA sound chipset isnt that great i thought my Realtek sounded better.

3.6ghz on 1.4v need to test now

as for the ram would you say that start at stock timings and stock voltage and increase voltage till stable at 1600mhz? then start to drop the timings if needed add more voltage?
all i need is 1600mhz any way as i clock via the multi on my BE

i believe i have to kill my 955...sad, that i cant simply cut it in 2 parts with an axe, throw it on a trainrail on my work, and enjoy the "knack"....
then pull out 20 freshbought 955, and start cherry picking:D

alright heres an update. This is the latest bench - first with physx enabled, second with the 9800 disabled.

I think i found the reason why my cpu wasn't hitting 3.8 - it was the version of overdrive i was using. I downloaded the latest version 3.1 and its stable thus far at 3.8Ghz again :)

i need some help im not sure even as a guidline what to set the NB frequency too or what voltage to feed it

i have my HT set to 2,400mhz and i have its voltage set to auto, need a rough idea of what to set the voltage at

a lot of the options on this board are different or things i never had to set

havnt oc'd in ages since i had my old board perfect!

to OC the NB of the PH II, you must simply raise the NB VID to a value between 1.2-1.4,preferabily something about 1.3 (and the NB voltage to about 1.3-1.4);)
if your board lacks the NB VID option, the Tool "K10Stat" can change it:)

C3 965 is nice...heres my new stable clock
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=816388
Since that validation ive been able to drop the voltage some...and this is all on Air cooling.
wow thats great, that C3 stepping must be great, if you can run it cool at a high voltage then there is no problem

personally i wouldnt run it that high but if temps are under control its fine

Try to keep you HT at 2.Ghz...Furthest i up my CPU-NB is 2.6 because theres really no difference between 2.6 and 3Ghz and at 2.6 it keeps the CPU and NB cooler.

Try to keep you HT at 2.Ghz...Furthest i up my CPU-NB is 2.6 because theres really no difference between 2.6 and 3Ghz and at 2.6 it keeps the CPU and NB cooler.
the HTT is like max 2.6ghz on my board i think thats max for a lot of people, its 3.0 right?

the northbridge i might just put it at 2.6ghz its 2.4ghz just now

joinmeindeath417 happens to have the same board as me rofl, i like it so far has a lot of options and the back IO has a lot of stuff like esata
