The vdroop (or is it vdrop) on my board is around 0.8v.
Have you tried changing the render ahead back to 3 to make sure it wasn't that, that was causing the problem?
0.8Vdroop is a bit you sure it's not 0.08 or 0.008
vCore you mean ? Have set it few weeks ago to 1.3750v for 3.7GHz, yesterday set it to 1.3875v - 3.8GHz this time. Mind you - the cooling for CPU is stock AMD's HSF & the ambient temp in room is less then 20C. On Monday (Jan 10) is salary day & i'll have enough ca$h for VenomousX + something else.
While @ it : how did you set your NB/HT voltages/frequencies ? Thinking bout setting CPU/NB frequency to 2200MHz & HT to 2400/2600MHz, just need to know how high to set voltages to both respectively.
up cpu nb not the HT
upping HT speed does absolutely nothing it might help stability wise but litterally its a .0001% difference where as the NB speed is easily felt
try and keep your ram at half your NB speed with tight timings so that your more likely to have memory read speeds and L3 cache read speeds end up being equal
2600nb = 1300mhz ram try for CL7 at those speeds 2800nb = 1400mhz ram so on and so forth very few can hit 3000nb on 965 the X6 cpus are more likely to hit that speed.
You're right, it's 0.08v
What I mean is that the cpu voltage drops a lot on this board; for example if I set 1.57 in the BIOS, it's 1.55 idle on Windows and 1.49 while on load (prime95 and OCCT)
I leave HT frequency at 2000 as if you increase it you lose performance (at least in some benchmarks) CPU/NB 2600 (can't go higher) with 1.25
I didn't know this but that's what I have.
Did I up the right vid settings for this overclock?Also how is my temps look for an air cooler?
Is that your load voltage? If so that's a great overclock. Try to keep the HT around the 2000 mark as it doesn't give any performance when overclock. EDIT: I'm starting to think that I got a bad chip.
Yes and it wasn't.
yep but it crashes at the cpu test in 3dmark11 will try the HT 2000 and up my volt on the cpu.
It was too good to be true.
Yeah silly thing will post at 20x=4.0 gihz at 1.45v but needs 1.50v and the NBVid needs 1.25v and the HTvid needed 1.26v for it to do a 3dmark run with the memory at 2600 mhz:shadedshu.Scored 8015 so those volts not worth it.
It seems that from 3.8ghz for every 100mhz it needs 0.05v; mine does 3.9ghz with 1.47 (load) but to do 4.0ghz it needs more than 1.52v. As we said earlier, don't bother with the HT, leave it manually at 2000mhz and the voltage on auto, that's one setting less to worry about.
Upped the CPU/NB to 2400MHz (need to know though how high OV NB & HT) & HT to 2000MHz. Just in case before i'll forget - CPU-Z validation page :
Im not sure I understand your question
ht.. leave it at 2000mhz if you like. if not raise it up a bit. There is really no noticeable difference raising it. Nb? have you tried to go higher under stock nb volts?
most C3 denebs can do 2600-2800 on stock NB volts
as for HT link i hit 3450mhz on reasonable volts it doesn't help much and just causes stability issues when you clock way up...i guess under xfireX you may see some bandwidth in there....
Lol, leave it to you to blow it outta the water CD nice run and Im thinking Ima going to try matching ht to the nb
good luck its DICE
my HT is at 2739+ mhz and that's high as it goes... Mem NB clocks higher but not HT. WTH?
hmm my 1090T hit 3ghz from what i remember on water... maybe its the mobo
By OV i mean overvolt. How high i need to overvolt (if needed) the NB/HT ? Or just leave it @ Auto ? vCore is @ 1.3875v, NB frequency is @ 2400MHz, HT @ 2000MHz & NB/HT voltage ? That's all i ask. Thanx.
You should set the CPU-NB volts to anything between stock and 1.45.... what value is gonna give biggest benefit to you, is to be self tested. mine liked 1.3375 for example
hey guys. i got this old pentium cooler from 1992
bought it at 30cents
its got the stock fan on it. i brought it back to its best form. cools pretty well. so i was wondering if this would be better than the stock chipset cooler on my ASUS M4A785D-M PRO mobo?
if not you have any other ideas?
Thanx. Will do it right now actually.
Yeah, i'll get to that choppah too. Where did you got this pic ?
