  1. Hi guys.

    I did some changes in the rules, go to the 1st page and check it.

    I will add my overclock soon, keep tuned and keep overclocking ;)

    The idea is easy.

    Exist two tables, 1st one is for OC stable with stability test and the 2nd one is only for OC (don't stable necessary)

    1- The rules for OC stable are this:

    Post the OC's here and in this format

    Updated example:
    Cpu: 955
    Name: saint19
    Stepping: C2
    Frequency: 3700
    ref*multi: 200*18.5
    CPU voltage: 1.42
    CPU-NB: 1.30
    nb frequency: 2600
    NB volts: 1.2
    RAM: 4GB 1600Mhz DDR3 8-8-8-24-2T @ 1.65V
    Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5
    Cooling: Air cooling/Hyper 212+
    OS: 7 64-bit
    GFLOPS: 49 (Only for LinX)
    (For Gigaflops, You must run either LinX for at least 5 runs, screen shot required, peak score will be taken)


    The stability test can be do it with 2 hours on any of this progmras: Prime95, LinX, OCCT or y-cruncher in stress test mode*

    * Launch the program, press 2, enter, 0, enter, x GB (x being nearly how much RAM your system has free according to task manager), and press enter. The program will periodically indicate how much time has been consumed for the testing.

    It doesn't need to be in that specific order, but don't post just a screenie, it makes it much slower for me to update, and i don't have enough info to fill in many of the spaces. Thanks in advance

    Posts with no verification of stability (screenie) were not added to the list, furthermore, posts a CPUz validation only were added to the 2nd table. If you wish to be added to the list. Follow the above format and post a screenshot verifying stability.


    Give as much info as you can. Results can also be updated or filled in. Please make a new post to do so and post the pic in thumbnail size.

    Stable OC

    Stable OC table


    Insane OC

    Insane OC table


    Now start to OC folks!

    I hate that this don't support HTML code :( :fou:



    So, I'm pretty new to the overclocking scene. There seems to be a ton of good advice seeping from this thread, so I'm gonna go ahead and post what I have and hope you guys can point me to greener pastures. I'm pretty happy I've found stability with what I've got, but inexperience is sure to be causing roadblocks and bottlenecks. Thanks for whatever feedback you guys come up with!

    This is my CPU-Z verification...

    CPUZ


    This is a screenshot of my Prime95 blend test and core tempsP95

    In your format, I've got this:

    CPU: Phenom II x3 740 Heka
    Name: Prodigy
    Stepping: C2 (I believe)
    Frequency: 3700MHz (200x18.5)
    CPU Voltage: set in BIOS at 1.469, CPU-Z shows 1.464 max V throughout stressing
    CPU-NB: Auto
    NB Frequency: 2000MHz
    NB Volts: Auto
    RAM: 4GB (2x2) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 @ 8-8-8-24 2T 1.63V (1.65 MF recommended) 1.63 is highest without going over 1.65 BIOS will allow
    Motherboard: MSI 870A-G54
    Cooling: Hyper 212+ just the one fan
    OS: Windows 7 32-bit

    I can look up the ratio and voltages that are auto for you if you need them. I haven't unlocked the fourth core while overclocking. I did have it unlocked and it ran great at 3.0 although I didn't run any stability testing with it unlocked.

  7. OK, here's where i'm at right now....

    CPU: 955 BE
    Stepping: C3
    Freq: 3900 (200x19.5)
    CPU Volt: 1.3875
    CPU-NB: *AUTO*
    NB Freq: *AUTO
    NB Volts: *AUTO*
    RAM: 4GB (2x2gb) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333mhz (9-9-9-24 2T 1.5v
    MOBO: ASUS M4N98TD EVO
    Cooling: 212+ 1 fan

    I have yet to run Prime. However, I probably have 10 hours of COD:BO at these settings. Not a hitch. Idle temp on the CPU is 30*c. When gaming, goes to 45*c MAX. Mobo temp of 27*c idle, 32*c MAX when gaming.

    Any changes recommended before I try Prime? Based on the temps and the current vcore, looks like I have room to try for 4.0-4.1ghz.

  10. Here's what I did...

    CPU: 955 BE
    Stepping: C3
    Freq: 4000 (200x20)
    CPU Volt: 1.45
    CPU-NB: *AUTO*
    NB Freq: *AUTO
    NB Volts: *AUTO*
    RAM: 4GB (2x2gb) Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1333mhz (9-9-9-24 2T 1.5v
    MOBO: ASUS M4N98TD EVO
    Cooling: 212+ 1 fan

    I got an error with the vcore at 1.3875. So I bumped it to 1.45, which was just a little under what the AUTO settings kicked the vcore to when I was playing around. 40 minutes of no errors. My only concern.... the vcore bounces around quite a bit.... Any thoughts?

    Reply to randomhero1090
  11. The vcore will fluctuate mine will go from 1.46 to 1.49-1.5
    Reply to miwanuma
  12. Ok cool, thank you.

    I'm very very happy with 4.0. My gaming performance is stellar. I got COD:BO running 1280x1024 with all settings maxed out, fps between 80-100. If I took the max fps UP, i'd go probably as high as 130 fps.

    Being a noob to OC'ing, the move that makes the MOST sense to me is to bring the vcore DOWN and retest, finding the LOWEST vcore value that still gives me a stable 4.0 OC. Right????

    If you want know how much FPS you can get, go to nvidia control panel and turn off V-Sync.

    Regarding the Vcore, you need start to test it, slow down the core voltage and test it again.

    lol yes as I do know that minute makes a difference with the rules. :D Besides overclocking is a trial and error basis which in itself takes time as we all know. There is no instant gratification to it. :cry:

  28. Hi guys...

    I'm pretty noob when it comes to OC'ing, but had a good dialog with wisecracker here on the forum that has helped me alot.

    I runned prime95 7 hours over night on 14x280 = 3920MHz on Core Voltage 1.428V with no errors. Max temp 45C.

    Will post my screen when I get home from work...

    I will also try to run 14x286 just to reach the golden limit of 4000Mhz :) Hopefully it works.

    Btw. It is an Athlon II x3 445 not unlocked cause bad 4'th core i believe.

    :( Ok, I looked at other peoples pictures of the prime95 test I see what you are saying; I hadn't stopped the prime test when I got the screen shot so I didn't have that total time on mine. Wouldn't the thing that says when it started and at what it was currently at be the same as if I stopped it though? Or is it slightly different how the Prime95 testing cycles work? I understand rules are rules so I am fine with redoing it, I just assumed that when the main threads started and stopped (or where they were currently at) would be adequate. I will do it again in the next couple days with a higher overclock and post it with all the necessary info.
    Reply to oparadoxical_
  35. When you stop the test, at the end prime95 shows you the total time that you ran the test, or you can use LinX, with this you select the total time that you want run the test and this stop automatically when the total time is completed.

  40. TY green300!! Hehe yeah a little typo :) Corrected now!! But guys, I was wondering if my cpu is maybe bottlenecking my gpu?! Is there any improvements I could do to this oc?

    When benching with Sisoft Sandra which numbers is it that I am going too look at? At work now so can't post result here but have posted it at this link:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tomshardwareus.inc&cat=29&post=263534&page=1&p=1&sondage=0&owntopic=1&trash=0&trash_post=0&print=0&numreponse=0&quote_only=0&new=0&nojs=0

    I'm wondering to try 286x14 to get past the golden limit of 4GHz, but as wisecracker explained to me;

    You will generally reach a point where additional clock speed will reduce latency BUT bandwidth will start to drop.

    Where can I see the latency and bandwith with SiSoft Sandra?

    Thanks in advanced :D

  41. @matta85: You can use AIDA 64 or Everest to check the latency and bandwith. You will be added soon.

  45. it actually might....
    When I ran wityh my phenom II X4 at 3.6 - 3.8 it bottelnecked my gtx 285 (not too much but enough) when I got my xeon the bottelneck was gone and I was getting higher graphics scores...
    So like I said it might bottelneck the card but probably not by too much...

    Just got done my first ever oc and got it stable....it sure did take a while! :pt1cable: I've been reading many many guides and forum posts over the last couple days and a lot of them were on Tom's Hardware, including this one. Figured I'd share it with ya. Not quite as good as theOKAY's but close. The system likes to complain a lot if I put the CPU freq to 3.6 or higher, even if I send it up to 1.57V :ouch: , so I gave up on acheiving 3.6

    For some reason my CPU-Z validation shows as rejected and can't figure that one out, but there's the link anyway.....maybe it has something to do with the NB Frequency showing up incorrectly?

    Cheers!
