does this look right?
LOL. it looks noobish j/k.
thats one helluva interface you have there.
and try sticking your HT to 2000MHz. it gives more stability and doesnt hamper performance.
It came with my mobo. This one doesn't let me custom oc. It does that ez oc stuff.
am3+ means, that the socket is physically different, with not necessarily a new chipset, but most probably. the majority of am3 boards would support it, chipsetwise, but due to a physically different socket (the old, white one) compability will never exist.
The Server Sockets are not pins anymore, they are LGA like Intel uses it for quite a bit of time... its probably cheaper for AMD, to do it the old way, in AM3+ and FM1,till now,
but who knows?
Maybe FM2 will be LGA too?
Drop the HT, 2300 wont benefit you in any way, and will only produce instability, if it does anything at all.
and better stop using software OC solutions, they produce worser outcome than hardware based OC...
only tool that i can recommend is K10stat, thats what the pros use too, but besides that, software clocking is futile.
and to you both, Kevin and Dude.... better read some of the last 500 pages...just my recommendation!
i dont like it too much, to see my favorite thread crapped with questions and answers, that were asked a few hundred times already...
(Phenom 2 is out a few years already, and there are no secrets regarding clocking it anymore)
doesnt help to slim it down and structure it better, eh?
That program I only use for fan speed and such, but im talking about in bios, it only has automatic ocing. It goes by 5%
then one tip:
use this program for FSB raising and fan speed control only, and control the multi and cpu and cpu/NB voltages with K10stat. you will make yourself much happier, doing that, be assured
Thanks, do you have a link to download it? I checked on google and all of the sites looked sketchy
AMD Overdrive should work.
yup, it's working. I don't like the sliders though, makes it really hard to get it right
Use the arrow keys to dial it in. *and be careful. Your board (the 770 chipset specifically) will burn if you push it too far.
Ahh, thats better! I'm still a bit of a n00b with overclocking. What would you put everything at for a stable 3.2ghz the multiplier is 14x and cpu is at 229 and 1.3250 volts
Actually, that looks pretty good. I wouldn't go over 1.4v with that board on the CPU.
I prob will stay with this speed for a while. 28C for each core Thanks Mr. rock! And you too Velvetwafer :3
here, that should help you:
If it works, its great... but if it does not, its one of the most bugged, glitchy tools, i ever used... i learned it to be a horrible alternative to k10stat, along some third party fsb changer.
and if you can find a translator for this be my guest
yeah, thats about what i said... only that asus knowingly used the wrong pictures, showing boards with white sockets. the asrock pictures sport the black sockets which will definetly work... the asus boards will work too, just that there are probably 2 revisions, the ones with the white sockets, and the ones with the black sockets
anyone knows about the limits of my 785G chipset?
AIDA64 identifies it as an RS880?
i have the reference to 270.
and NB is at 2700.
i guess, before you reach the limits of your chipset, you rather reach the limits of your CPU or VRM
i think i know that. i cant seem to get 275 stable on the ram or CPU
I dont think socket color has a matter in this,
Yes but the black ones are cooler!
My next purchase is going to be some decent memory that does 6 timings at 1600MHz, any suggestions anyone? I'll be going the 8gb route as well, ideally 2x 4GB sticks.
I got a 2x2gb suggestion, Mushkin Ridgebacks.
Cheers Jr...have you ever tried them in a 4x2 config? I see you are pushing CL 5, is that at 1333Mhz or 1066MHz?
edit - just noticed 1Ghz
i has 5-5-5-16 at 1080MHz
