  1. I've got mine overclocked at 240 Mhz with 2-3-3-7 timings. I've gone higher, but it works well with my CPU speed (1 to 1).
  2. Memtest would freeze up on me as well if I left my RAM settings on "Auto". I used the recommended settings for my RAM and passed memtest without any problems. See if you can input some RAM settings instead of using "Auto".
  3. 2x1024 is better for overclocking. I'd look into OCZ Platinum Rev 2, they are compatable and OC pretty well.
  4. I don't know why it would be a problem, I have my CPU fan plugged into the motherboard.
  5. You can do some overclocking with the stock HSF, but for peace of mind I'd go with an XP-90.
  6. Alright, here's the settings I'm testing: 200 enable 2.5 3 8 3 8 16 3 3 2 3 3864 auto enabled auto 0 7 2 7.0 auto 256 disable 16 07 disable 240 4 16 16 10 100 disable 1.35v 113% 1.2v 1.5v 2.8v And it appears to be failing during large FFT's, namely 1024K. So should I blame my RAM for the problem? Any suggestions as far as settings go?
  7. Well I just checked and I am using Prime95 24.13, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. Everything was stock when I installed Windows. I loaded optimized defaults then configured my memory timings to the stock settings and ran memtest for 8+ hours. I didn't get any errors so I installed Windows without any problems. I didn't really notice when it was erroring out, I'll try OC'ing again and pay attention to that. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.
  8. I'll check that when I get home from work today, I'm not sure what version I'm using. I never really tried superpi or occt... I have it set for 1.45v and I have tried just upping the FSB without changing the core voltage, but my computer either locks up while loading Windows or when running prime95. If all else fails I may give that a try.
  9. Yeah, I've tried using 2T and several different dividers. Right now my voltage is at 2.8, but I've tried 2.7-2.9 without success. I've successfully passed 8+ hours of memtest with my RAM @ 250 Mhz as well, although I know that doesn't necessarily mean it's stable in Windows.
  10. Yeah, I use the "Special" setting to increase the voltage. Check my sig, I'm using the latest official BIOS, 623-3. I tried the 9x multiplier as well and got the same result.
  11. Just thought I'd throw in my good word for Seasonic PSU's, I couldn't be happier with mine.
  12. Maybe this is the limit of my processor, but I figured I'd ask for some suggestions before giving up. My computer is currently stable at 240x10, but when I take it to 241x10 I get Prime95 rounding errors. I've taken the core voltage all the way up to 1.6 and still can't even pass Prime95. I have adjusted my LDT mult. to keep the HTT below 1000. I have tried running my RAM as close to 200 Mhz (stock timings) as well as put it on a divider with loose timings. I've increased/decreased the LDT and chipset voltage as well. With my CPU voltage @ 1.6v and my processor @ 2500 Mhz, before it failed prime the temps only reached 40C, so temps don't seem to be an issue. I read some people had a problem getting past 240 Mhz with SATA drives, but my hard drive is IDE so that's not a problem. Any suggestions on what I should play around with next? I was hoping to reach 2600 Mhz, but I don't think that's going to happen.
  13. Have you adjusted the LDT multiplier? For anything above 250 FSB, I would lower the LDT to 3x. You need to keep the FSB x LDT < 1000.
  14. I have the same problem, I'm stuck at 2400 Mhz and I've gone all the way up to 1.6v, but I still get prime95 errors. I'm just about to call it quits and live with my 400 Mhz overclock.
  15. Taken from A64 Overclocking Sticky It is the same way as the old AMDs, when you change the FSB, your RAM is running at that same speed if you set the divider to 1:1 200 Mhz. This divider is the new feature, it allows you to adjust your RAM speed to run at a fraction of your FSB speed. Even though it says 200 Mhz 1:1, you are actually running your RAM at the FSB speed. There are also settings like 3:04, 5:06, etc... If you were to choose one of those, here's an example: Say your FSB is set to 240 Mhz Then you set the divider to 5:06 To get the speed your RAM is running at, calculate 240/6*5 = 200 Mhz So even though your FSB is 240 Mhz, your RAM is only running at 200 Mhz because of the divider. That really helps when your RAM can't handle the high FSB.
