  1. Yeah it passes memtest tho....a couple of times too.
  2. my volts at 1.58, i have it set to 1.325 + 123% startup is auto i think.
  3. i got the thermaltake.....still froze, so my psu isnt the issue.....i guess my cpu tops out at 2.75ghz, wich isnt a bad oc from 2.2......any other suggestions?
  4. my PSU peaks at 650, thats only going to give me a little extra power, this will take my video card off my current psu, its a prrety good idea, ima give it a shot, my local frys has it, if nothing cvhanges, i will return it, not a biggie.
  5. if power is the issue, then im going to order one of these, great idea.................... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817153037
  6. I got the enermax 600watt psu .......... my cpu is the 65watt one...low energy.
  7. it passed for an hour, never crashed, and this is with the ihs off, it did 2.75ghz even with the ihs on, so the ihs off for me did nothing.
  8. Hey, i got my cpu up to 2.75 100% stable......i have been trying to get it stable at 2.8ghz i know its not a much increase but i would like to push all i can from this cpu....with the settings 255x11 passes sp2004 one per each core, and memtest is 100% pass also, but when i play call of duty 2, or run 3dmark06 it freezes within minutes, if not less than a minute.....this is the first time i have run into a problem like this, where it passes sp2004 and frezes in games, usually when one passes the other one is stable as well.....any idea on what might be the problem, here is how i have everything setup...... 255x11 @ 1.58volts = 2805mhz mem = 255 htt = 4x ldt volt = 1.2 nf4 volt = 1.5 temps while stress testing are like this cpu = 47c pwmic = 58c chipset = 42c any ideas????? or suggestions...thanks!
  9. If you dont have the AMD drivers installed your gonna run into slow downs, and speed ups, only if you have a dual core cpu....the drivers and hotfix do fix these issues, so please do no misinform people with your opinions, why would a compant release drivers if it was for bad....there is no harm in installing the drivers, only gain, just make sure CnQ is turned off from the bios thats it.
  10. i speak from expierience, not from what i hear number one, number two if its not for you, then you need not to apply.
  11. if it aint broke dont fix it, im stickin with the 6/23-3 bios, works like a charm.
  12. Thanks alot...i have had this cpu for a while and have played around for a long time, and finally this is the best way to get the most out of these cpu's while keeping it stable and good for overclocking as well.
  13. Hey thanx for the compliment dude......the microsoft update is only for dual core users, you can read about it here....... http://support.microsoft.com/?id=896256 , and you can download it here...... http://rapidshare.de/files/8244709/Windows...86-ENU.exe.html , to make sure the hot fix is installed properly read the link i gave before the download link, your going to have to put this in the registry to enable it ..... 1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK. 2. Right-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession Manager, point to New, and then click Key. 3. Type Throttle for the new key name. 4. Right-click Throttle, point to New, and then click DWORD Value. 5. Type PerfEnablePackageIdle for the value name. 6. Right-click PerfEnablePackageIdle, and then click Modify. 7. In the Value data box, type 0. Make sure that Hexadecimal is selected in the Edit DWORD Value dialog box, and then click OK. Note You can type 1 in the Value data box to enable the new performance state policy behavior. 8. Quit Registry Editor. to get to your boot.ini on the desktop right click on MY COMPUTER, go to properties, then go to advanced bar, then go down to startup and recovery and click on settings, after you have done that click on edit, and make sure your boot.ini looks like this...... [boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect /usepmtimer these steps will make sure your dual core cpu is stable and working correctly....dont listen to people saying its better or faster to not have the drivers, it may be a little faster but its not stable by any means, just make sure you have COOL n QUIET disabled in the bios and you will be fine, hope this helped. PM if you guys have any questions.
  14. for dual core users, the amd drivers are recomended, when i didnt have them installed, i would get slowdowns and speedups, like fastforwarding, you need to have these drivers installed if you want stabilty, also make sure your boot.ini has this line in it /useptimer also you need the hotfix from microsoft, these are the things you need in order to have complete stability with these cpu's i am speaking from exp. not cuz i am speculating..... 1-install the amd drivers from www.amd.com 2-install the microsoft fix...dont know where you can find it, if you need it PM me 3-make sure your boot.ini has this line in it /useptimer then you will have complete stability with these drivers, these issues are within microsoft's operating system, not the dual core cpu's itself, lets hope the microsoft geeks can make VISTA better for us dual core users.
