Hey do you guys think a 212 evo would be a decent improvement over my 9700NT?
It should have been at like 1.37 or something around there at stock, not 1.5
I used Intel test burn. Is Linx better or just another flavor of the same thing?
I used linx and it stopped after 30seconds saying there was a error
I'd never linx until just now. It stops after 21 seconds with an error. I have my RAM thoroughly OC'ed though. I'll run it at 1600 and see if that fixes it. I'm also wandering if that might be whats causing occasional Skyrim CTDs.
What settings are you using in Linx?
I clocked my RAM down from 1840 10-10-10-24 to 1600 8-8-8-24 (rated speed) and its going fine for 5 mins now.
Just use OCCT on linpack its easier then linx and works just as good unlike prime.
I had the same issue with prime and my FX, I could run any data set for hours @ 4.5 linpack would fail in 20 min or less.
My guess is Prime don't stress anything but the CPU core and not anything related to memory or on die memory controller.
Try setting the HT at stock setting and then putting the NB HT at auto HT freq was what was giving me all the problems also small bump in CPU NB volts might help.
Intel burn test, LinX, OCCT are all just GUI's for linpack
1.3v is rather low as it is. Undervolting is fun but in my own personal experience it lead to more OS reinstall than what just strictly overclocking has.
Unstable northbridge. Same point I was trying to get at with Kevin.
Thanks for the re-confirmation Batou!
Thanks for the info.
Might as well up the volts go for 4 Ghz then
Norton, your 1.5v "stock" problem is BIOS-related. Try updating the board's BIOS. I've had review samples that did the same(not ASUS, mind you), and were fixed later with BIOS updates. I think there was an AGESA at one point that was really really bad.
Also, it seems to me that those BIOSes that do that also have the Valve Game problem(games using Valve's DRM like Source titles, and Deus EX, will crash, for no reason other than bad BIOS code).
Thanks for the tip- I'll check on it.
I'm running 3.8/4.0 Turbo at 1.42v at the moment and stable
Ha, you buggers and your good clocking chips.
I'm gonna be getting a 1090T is a few weeks hopefully, and also hopefully, it'll clock better than my current 1100T. As it is now, I cannot decide between the 1100T, and the FX-4100 I got...I hate to say it, but I prefer the FX chip at this point(mostly because it draws less than half the power the 1100T does), but I haven't really had much time to game on either chip yet.
id say get on it and compare numbers to the FX 8120/8150 and see if it suffers the same effect as those 2...
Seems like most of us with 960T's are getting good overclocks
Someone here got way over 4 Ghz!!! Don't remember who at the moment
** EDIT** it was HUSKIE (4.5Ghz!)
1.648v. I have to disable BIOS monitoring before I can give that much...I need a better motherboard. I should be getting a Crosshair V with the 1090T, and I'm hoping that it will allow me to push further, but I doubt it.
In the FX Overclocking thread, I got my CPU to -14c in BIOS using the stock cooler(took the rig outside when it was -30C), and got a bit over 5 GHz(5.1 i think).
I wonder what Huskie's chip would get when cooled below zero!
ive 4.062 24/7 folding stable at the min im going to leave it at that probably since any more requires a lot of core volts especially 24/7 but ive an OC profile at 4.3 im working on for benches etc and thats stable just 1.56 on core and 1.52 on cpu/nb so im not sure that'd be healthy folding 24/7
The highest I've gone with my 1090 is 4.4, with 1.632v. I was afraid to go any higher, cause I don't have money for a replacement if I fry it, lol. I've seen at least two poeple on here that got 4.4 and 4.5 in the 1.4-1.5 range.
So I did this
and I then got this
Mine will post at 4.4Ghz and that's it, at 4.3Ghz I can run Wprime and SuperPi but it's not stable; since it can do 4.2Ghz with 1.50-1.52v that's where is at now.
That sounds exactly like mine.
I was having some trouble with my proc being stable while playing BF3 and recording. I was running it on stock and on a whim I decided to try raising the FSB to 220, It posted but crashed after 10 mins of prime, I then upped the voltage on my ram and voilà, prime 95 stable after 1.5 hours
Can't overlook the RAM voltage. Glad it's fixed.
Stay put for more Results... this is what i got in one hour, of just playing around aimlessly. Some voltages are even higher than needed i think
EDITed in the second CPUZ tab showing NB and ram clocks, forgot that!
I still need to look into my mobo still cant get my nb* over 2.6 stable.^^ Nice NB OC btw^^
