  1. the thing is i have tried my ram down to 800mhzs even tried ddr 400 lol and with my timings as loose as they could go... and its still not stable.

     

    i know the ram forsure aint holding it back anyways because the ram can do ddr 1200.

     

    but so far its doing prime at 3.790 1.52 which any lower v than that it wont pass 15min it just restarts.

    and got the ram @ 1180 something @2.4volts

     

     

    i overclocked in bios to 3.6ghzs and overclocked it by 200mhzs on easy tune well 190mhzs.

     

    i just think the cpu hit a brick wall because some cpus will do higher than others and i problee just got one of thoes that wont clock as high as others.

     

    i pretty much tried everything.. lol

  2. tried what you said about finding the max oc stable in bios with 1.45 and its 3.7ghzs

     

    than i tried to higher in easytune it some more up to 3.750 with the same voltage 1.45 and it was occting for maybe about a hour than when i came back to the computer it restarted it self...

     

    so looks like 3.7 is the max it will go if its 1.45v

     

    oh about the video card no the video card aint the problem i just thought it was sense it was overclocked on the core and mem so i lowerd it down to stock but the cpu still fails.

     

    i also got the pcie locked on 100mhzs

     

    so pretty much all i could think is the cpu hit its limit:( still 3.7 is still a nice oc but still wish it wouldve went to 3.8stable.

     

    i still gona try a go starting with 3.780 1.52 in bios were it seems like it was pretty stable and try to atleast higher it with easytune to 3.8 and see if its stable.

     

    what i dont get is it was stable one time with [email protected] @ 4hours and i stop it than after that it wouldint get over 1hour lol

    tried what you said about finding the max oc stable in bios with 1.45 and its 3.7ghzs

     

    than i tried to higher in easytune it some more up to 3.750 with the same voltage 1.45 and it was occting for maybe about a hour than when i came back to the computer it restarted it self...

    i still gona try a go starting with 3.780 1.52 in bios were it seems like it was pretty stable and try to atleast higher it with easytune to 3.8 and see if its stable.

     

    what i dont get is it was stable one time with [email protected] @ 4hours and i stop it than after that it wouldint get over 1hour lol

  3. i tried what you said terry and still no go:( 5min in occt lines goes threw the screen than restarts...

     

    than after that i try prime95 and it did last little longer than occt like 15min but it did the same thing and restarted...

     

    i also tried nb volts maxed and also went as far as pulling one stick of ram out and just run one stick in there and it does the same thing:(

     

    it just wont get stable when its 3.8 or higher... even if i give it 1.57vcore.... i also tried lower vcore but it crashed sooner. i even tried the ht clock lower down as low as 1440 and even the northbriidge clock down to 1440 still does it...

     

    the cpu goes in windows close to 3.9 np but as soon as i stress it at or above 3.8 it crashes with lines in the screen like a gpu would do when overclocked to much or a black screen than restart but i even lower my overclocked on my gpu just incase that has something to do with it but nope..

     

     

    i tested my psu rails to just incase with my volt tester but they pretty soild no change in volts from idle or load on the 12v.

     

    and i have my air on in the house and temps is pretty good when i had it at [email protected] temps never went over 51c and when i tried 1.57v temps ony hit 55c. so it seems not to be the cooling.. is it? unless this chip wants under 50c... but i doubt it

  4. ok tried to clock it 3.8ghzs in bios and tried every setting in there and it still wont stay stable...

     

    than when i was runing occt again when i did it with easytune it failed at 32min it said core 1 failed which before it made it 4hours i stop it at that but it problee wouldve kept on going.

     

    than i tested it again at around 45min it died than said core 2 failed... just seem like something is messing something up...

     

     

    than when i was in bios i figure i try something higher like 3.9ghzs and put vcore to 1.55 just to see if it boots and put my ram at 800 and put the other voltages up and before it went to the windows vista loading bar it blue screen really fast couldint see anything and restarted and no matter what i do i cant get pass that blue screen @3.9.

     

    the temps at load is around 52 to 55c so dont think its that doing it.

     

    so seems to be just the cpu just cant hold up when it hits 3.8 and up.

     

    was hopeing to get it 100% stable at 3.8ghzs and use 3.9 for benching heck 3.8 is even good for benching but just cant get it prime or occt stable it boots around 3.85 and 3.87 in windows but as soon as i pop occt on it restarts and shows lines on the screen.

  5. i find this just weird... i tried the bios again at the same settings i used with easytune and it resatrted right into occt test in about under a min. which the easytune seems really stable when i overclock with that...

     

    me i like overclocking with bios better because it seems like allways the best way to overclock but it seems when i overclock at 3.8ghzs or over with bios it reatarts or fails but easytune it just keeps going.

  6. ya some software could be buggy.

     

    i use everest to monitor my temps and right now as it sits its at 40c for gpu dispi0

     

    47 for the memi0

     

    41 for vrm

     

    this is at 40 to 50% fan speed [email protected] 920mhzs core and 1015 memory max temps i get in most stuff in in the 50s but playing crysis and games that loads the gpu pretty good max i saw was around 65 to 67c with max fan speed it doeisnt even hit 60c mosty around 50 to 55c but wow the fan is really loud at 100%... lol

     

    ever sense i got this coolmaster case my temps really drop down on gpu temps:)

     

    in my old case xclio 380 when i had this card in my socket 939 i had about 48 to 50s idle and around 70s max and that was with 65% fan speed.

     

    but ya load temps around 70s and even low 80s i herd is good for this card so i wouldint even worry if it does get up to there.

     

    but if its ony geting to 50c after runing 3dmark thatas really good:)

  7. yep i had the ram down to 800mhzs and looseing the timing as far as they will go and it still wouldint go higher.

     

    but today i tried just overclocking in windows with easytune6 and put it at muti at x18.5 and higher the fsb to 206 so its at 3.809ghz and well it passed a 4hour test when i was sleeping with occt and before with occt it wouldint go threw a 15min test when i overclocked in bios but in easytune it went right threw.

     

    so now im confused lol i ony got the volts at 1.49v to. im gona try it again in bios and and see if it passes maybe it will now but if it doesint think im useing easy tune lol

  8. well its still not stable... i left it run for about 6hours well i think nots ure because i left it runing awhile i was at work and prime95 crashed but computer was still runing.

     

    so i tested it awhile i was home and it failed around 2hours and 30min the first core was geting warnings.

     

    so i even tried more volts and for the cp nb even tried highering all the volts for the motherboard and it still wont pass right....

     

    but i could pretty much game at 3.85 with no problem but when i stress the cpu at 100% with prime95 it fails

     

     

    so it seems like my cpu hit the wall.

     

    maybe the temps is causeing it not to be stable? the temps was around 55 to 58 allmost 60c? if thats teh case looks like i will be needed water if i want to over clock this cpu at 3.8 or higher. because this air cooler is pretty much up with the best.

     

    i just cant figure what else is doing it. how far should i be highering the CPU NB VID Control ? max i went was 0.150 to 0.250 because 0.400 is highlighted in red and max is 0.600 is in the red maybe im just not highering it enough>?

     

    i know the ram is not the problem because i put that down to 800mhz with loose timings.

     

    right now i got it at [email protected] with my memory @1129 and its good and stable. even at 3.7ghzs and was stable at 3.78 like i said in my other post but really didint test it long enough max i did it was around 2 to 3hours.

  9. hmm little update i upped the CPU NB VID Control by 1 and so far its primeing alot longer and still going this is at 3.8ghzs @ lower vcore 1.5.

    even have the memory overclock still to 1126mhzs

     

    so seems like the CPU NB VID Control was the trick lol its a new setting for me sense my socket 939 didint have it or did it... lol

     

    but ya i was mainly looking for the max clock and run it like that all the time like i did with my 939 [email protected] lol

     

     

    if the 3.8ghzs is stable i atleast give it atleast 4to 6hours usely

     

    than i problee gona keep it at that for 24/7 sense i dont want my temps to be sky high right now its a nice 52 53c i might try lower vcore if this passes.

     

    than maybe over the weekend i see how much more it will go lol but im pretty happy with how it is now:)

     

    ya terry that is a good guide you linked im reading it right now :) thanks

  10. ok i tried my memory at 800mhzs and tried 3.8again and upped the northbridge volts and ran prime again and it still wont pass it just restarts or blue screens i also tried more volts 1.55 and it lasted little longer but failed.... so it does seem like it is the cpu hiting the wall...

     

     

    and to brandon 1.520v seems way too high just to reach 3Ghz is that a typo? because its at 3.8ghzs not 3ghzs.

    i also look up others and mosty everyone that runs this chip @ 3.8 and over runs at least 1.52vcore. but i do see some that run under 1.5 but seems like a few.

     

    right now im runing it at 3.7 with 1.47vcore and my memory overclock to

    1104 and prime is still runing which been over 2hours so far so it seems like th ram aint the problem at all.

     

    is there any other tricks or did this cpu hit the wall?

     

    i know my old oppy 165 took long time tweaking to get it stable at 3ghzs so maybe it takes little more tweaking?

  11. my goal right now is to get this chip prime95 stable @3.8ghzs under a hour it fails either restarts or blue screens or sometimes the first core just fails and the other cores still going... while gaming it doeisnt have no problems i guess gaming -gtaiv- just doesint stess the cores as much as prime.

     

    right now im priming @3.78ghzs so not far from 3.8 and ya i know 20mhzs wont make a diffrence lol but you know i like a even number hehe and maybe this chip could be a 3.9er lol

     

    my settings is 18.0 multplier bus speed is 210mhzs ht link 1890 vcore is 1.520v

     

    and my memory mushkin 1066 is at 1120mhzs with the timings untouched. but they show 5.0 7 7 24 31 2t

     

     

    my motherboard is gigabyte ma790x-ud4p.

     

     

    and all the other voltages like chipset northbrige is at stock

  12. kinda late now sense i have the coolmaster lol

     

    it seems to be cooling well tho its usely 55 to 57max and that with 3.8ghzs @1.55vcore with the stock heatsink it proble wouldve been up in the 80s at these settings lol

     

    because when i just went over 1.4vcore with the stock heatsink it would hit 65c to 70c @ ony 3.4ghzs with this heatsink at those settings 49 to 52c max thats with prime95 by the way with gaming it doesint even hit 50c mosty 42 to 45c with the stock heatsink i was gaming at 55c and up.....

     

     

    now working on to get 3.8stable it plays every game and bench but when i leave prime95 runing it will either crash prime95 or bluescreen....

  13. k got the cooler on fitted in my coolmaster haf 922 no problems even with the 2x120mm fans on and the 200mm fan on top..

     

    and so far got it at 3.74ghzs @ 1.47vcore and max temps is cpu 50 to 51c all cores maxed out at 51 to 52c doing prime95 is this good temps?

     

    oh and with no load it goes down to 35 to 36 on the cores and 34 for the cpu.

     

    and im useing ocz freeze paste seems to be really good stuff

     

    with the stock heatsink i was geting high 50s to 60s with stock vcore and 3.4ghzs and with no load it was allways in the 40s and thats also with a modded 80mm 90 something cfm fan strap on.

     

    gona try for 3.8 or higher:)

     

    with the stock heatsink 3.6 and 3.7 wasint stable at all but now it is.

     

     

     

    edit ... got it at 3.8ghzs and my memory overclocked to 1145mhzs had to pump 2.3volt into the ram to get it stable tho... but herd the ram could take that.

     

    so far its stable tho the temps did raise to 55c to 56c because had to put it at 1.52vcore but im sure the stock heatsink wouldve been like 70 or 80c if i tried it like that lol but couldint because matter what i did couldint get it stable with the stock heatsink.

     

    i might pop the extra fan i got for the heatsink on it so i have 2 fans doing work:) should cool it down even more.

     

    or might pop on my 2x SILVERSTONE 110cfms on:)

  14. just orderd the coolmaster 212 plus:) figure sense this cool master haf 922 cools everything nicey so the 212p should cool the cpu pretty good hopefully so i could get a stable 3.8ghzs out of this 940 it posts at 3.8ghzs but temps is around 68 to 70c... to hot and doeisnt seem stable.

     

     

    i also orderd another 120mm fan so i could go duel fans on it and got some new thermal paste OCZ OCZTFRZTC Freeze Extreme Thermal paste herd good things about it:)

     

    right now i have a very high cfm 80mm fan strap to the stock heatsink and with artic silver 5 under it and its staying out of the danger zone around 45 to 50 in games and streess testing with prime around 55 to 59c max

     

     

    and have it at 3.4ghzs at 1.392vcore so far its stable at that.

  15. ok think im gona get the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ but it is better than the dark knight right?

     

    i know it beats the price by alot:)

     

     

    also will it fit in my coolmaster haf 922 with the side panel on with my 2x120mm fans?

     

    and the top 200mm fan?

     

    the case is wide and look like it will fit very big coolers even with the 120mm fans but kinda hard to say.

     

    i know my xclio 380 with the side panel 250mm fan fits the coolmaster grimin duel fans heatsink with no problems and that case is not as wide as the haf 922.

     

     

    but the top 200mm fan is hard to say if it will fit.

  16. i made a new thread sense this is for heatsinks.

     

    but ya i builded another pc with a phenom 940 quad core am2 and the stock cooler isint cutting it for overclocking gets in the high 60c s... heck even at stock it gets in the uper 50c s

     

    so i was looking at buying a new heatsink and i want one that cools really good that i could keep this phenom at 3.8ghzs stable and one that fits in my case with the side panel on with my 2 120mm fans.

     

    oh and fits without removeing the top 220mm fan my case is the coolmaster haf 922.

     

     

    i was looking at theses

     

    this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835103046 which i have the 2 fan one on my socket 939 which cools that really nice @3ghzs 1.55vcore.

     

     

    and this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835233029 which looks like it will do good.

  17. hmm might have to pull the Cooler Master Gemini 2 that i have on my old system 939 out of there ;)

     

    tho not sure if it will fit because of the top 220mm fan might get in the way? :unsure: and have to find the parts that it came with lol hopefully somewere...

     

    also hows the 3dmark score?

     

     

    also i been hearing little cracking in the realtec sound not very offen like evey20 to 30sec? playing music or games. i tried new drivers and it still does it.

     

    other than that the system been runing nice:)

  18. k got everything yesterday and have it up and runing and so far everything is going great:)

     

    i tried crysis farcry 2 and gtaiv so far and all of thoes runs smooth and i have all settings maxed on all games and even on 1920x1200res:)

     

    i didint think thoes games would play this good lol mainly gtaiv.

     

    i even broadcasted gtaiv over xfire and the the fps ony drop by 2fps.

     

     

    so far got it overclocked at 3.5 stable didint try higher right now because the temps is pretty high all 4 cores got up in the 60s c

     

    next thing on the list is a new heatsink lol

     

    the case is also nice to when i put my hands by the fans i feel cold air and little warm air at load and the video card is staying colder than it was in my xclio 380:)

     

    also does this 3dmark 06 score seem good?

     

    http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dm06=11600514

     

     

    oh i also installed my 160s in raid 0 and they pretty fast now 220mbs and 90 to 100avg speed:) in my other system it was ony 50mb avg and 85peak not sure why it was that low..

     

    and got my other 2 1tbs for storage and stuff.

  19. by the way does am2 am3 have a good life span? like in the future?

     

    so if i want to upgrade down the road i could tho im sure this cpu will last me a really long time lol but be nice to know i can upgrade the cpu later on.

     

     

    unlike socket 939... as soon as i bought it pretty much was int to much upgrades for it after the opertron 165 which was called the best for 939.

     

    but would've been nice if somehow they made quads for 939 lol
