  1. Oh wow i feel stupid, thanks guys >.< sorry for the useless post...
  2. Ok this is the card. Asus nVidia Geforce 9800GT Ultimate (Please note this is the ULTIMATE and not a plan 9800GT) Stock specs: Core: 725mhz Shader: 1750mhz Memory: 2000mhz My system: Asus M3N-HT Deluxe motherboard 2x1gb 1066 OCZ DDR2 memory 750w Corsair power supply Ok my problem is the rams frequency. Smartdoctor (which is the program that monitors, and overclocks my GPU) says my memory is running at 2000mhz. But CPU-Z and SIW are saying its running at 1000mhz. And for the life of me I cannot figure out why this is. Is this a problem with drivers or my setup? Or is this a hardware defect and should I contact nvidia about it. Also has anyone else experienced this problem? If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  3. Leaving those stocked, the max I can obtain is around 220 FSB, or 2.5 - 2.6ghz on the processor. The stock mulitplier seems to always set at 9x, which makes the HT link go above 2050Mhz which causes it to become instable. I'm in the process of reinstalling my windows to setup my RAID0 array, and also to clear it out cuz ive been having some really weird things happening with it. That way i can eliminate any window's based BSOD's or freezes. I should have good cooling, I have 2 HUGE side fans (About the size of my head) on the side, and two front and back. It sits right by the air conditioning vent, and window with a house fan that directs air straight into the side. The hottest component I've ever seen (other than that faulty sensor) was the graphics card. The highest ive seen the NB chip is 59C, and highest the CPU has gotten is 49C.
  4. I did try tighter timings, but to no avail. such as 4-4-4-12-24-2T or lower. I also tried extremely loose timings as well. When i tried to find the boards max, it was really weird. The FSB can be up'd to 600, but with NB Multiplier at 5x, and CPU multiplier at 5x, and 400mhz with loose timings on the ram. I still couldnt get the thing to high 270 FSB. I didnt increase the NB-Chip Voltage by much nor did i increase the HT voltage. Just seems really odd though that it would only push below 270. Perhaps I should try to max the voltages? Or would that be too dangerous?
  5. Come to think of it, no it rarely ever changes from 82C. So that mean its prolly a dead sensor?
  6. I thought so too, but I did try reducing the MHZ on the RAM to lower speeds to no avail. At one point in time, I had this ram at 1100mhz, dont know how but i remember it happened. Any clue if the BSOD's or freezing in windows could be overheating, and can you identify what that 82C temperature is?
  7. This is currently what I have that runs stable. I can sometimes get the FSB to hit 269, but no matter what I do i cant get it to 270. As far as voltages, when i was attempting 270 FSB, I had my HT Multiplier at 5x, CPU Voltage at 1.5v, and NB-CPU Voltage at 1.4v. Other voltage that i dont touch are the 1.2V HT link voltage. The ram i have is actually a DDR2-800 ram that has been designed to overclock to 1066 once you set the voltage to 2.1v. I have it set to 2.280v. Most of the time, i can tell when its unstable because my computer will just not even boot up. And attempting to isolate the motherboard, CPU, and Ram is almost impossible. I tried lowering the CPU to 5x, and ram to 400, then trying to push the FSB to 270, with 5x multiplier and different voltages, but it just would not do it. Im wondering if I should push the HT link voltage, or if the timings should be different cuz i have absolutely no idea about those things. One thing I should mention, is when running stock, my HT Link is 2000mhz. I have an aftermarket cooler on my CPU, and the M3N-HT has this mem pipe thing to help dissipate a lot of heat, but i dont have the fan on it. Also im not sure if my temperature sensors are correct, here is a pic from SIW and Speedfan of my temperatures, you may notice one is extremely high, almost impossibly high and I cant tell what it actually is. Also this High temperature reading stays the same no matter if its overclocked or not. You guys think ive hit my cpu's limit?
  8. Hey, first off here are my specs... Asus M3N-HT Deluxe Mobo 4gb OCZ 1066mhz DDR2 Ram AMD X3 8650 2.3Ghz processor Asus nVidia 9800GT Ultimate series graphic card Well I was able to actually get this thing to 3.1ghz by reducing the NB Multiplier to 7x, resulting in an HT Link of 1ghz. Ram was running at around 1100mhz. Was pumping about 2.3v into the ram, 1.4v into the processor. I ran a stress test and the highest the processor got was 59C, which is 12C under the 71C threshold on the processor. Even so, it kept BSOD, and sometimes freezing on the BIOS setup. I was wondering if this could be because of too much voltage going to the processor, or if i need to up the NB voltage more to get it to stop BSODing. At 2.9ghz with voltages reduced it seems to not BSOD as often, but still does. I'm kinda new to overclocking, at least when it comes to messing around with voltages. Can an Overclock be unstable even without overheating? Any suggestions on Voltage settings, or other settings? I've heard these processors are really tough to overclock, but hoping someone out there might know a secret. Thanks
  9. Hey guys, Firstly my specs are... AMD Phenom X3 Toliman 2.3Ghz Processor AM2+ Socket. Asus M3N-HT Deluxe/Mempipe Motherboard 4gb OCZ Platnium DDR2 1066mhz Ram 500gb Seagate Barracuda Sata 32mb Buffer Nvidia Geforce 9800GT Ultimate Series Ok, recently ive been running Windows Professional XP 32-bit for awhile and was able to get a stable overclock at 2.8Ghz CPU speed at 1100Mhz Ram speed. I had to lower the multiplier of the HT link so i could achieve this with this processor, but it seems that trying to run it at 3.2Ghz will work but will cause a memory dump error not too long after windows xp starts up. Now i recently Installed Windows 7 RC Beta onto another hard drive while my system was at default stock settings. After installing Windows 7, i reapply my Staple overclock of 2.8Ghz and boot windows 7 up. When the logo appears it will do its little animation thing then it will freeze. Upon restarting and trying again i got to the login screen when it froze again. And last time i tried I actually got into windows, but then got a BSOD and memory dump. Im wondering if there is something i have to do in order to overclock my system and run windows 7 at the same time, because its a staple overclock but seems Windows 7 doesnt like it. Is this just a Windows 7 Bug thing or compatibility thing or something completely different? So far the only way i can run Windows 7 is keeping my processor at stock setting of 2.3Ghz.
  10. Hi, i haven't found much on overclocking with the specific ram nor motherboard for the AMD Phenom X3 8650. So far ive overclocked it to 2.680 Ghz, with memory running at 385mhz (DDR2) and 5 5 5 15. Once i got over that it wont boot up and I have to disconnect the power supply a couple of times to get it to finally boot. And when i go to windows CPU-Z says my cpu is running back at stock settings 2.3 ghz when bios will say 2.760 GHZ. So far ive only just tried increasing the FSB, everything else is on auto. I dunno if i want to mess with the ram since i havent had much experience with it, nor do i want to have to reset my bios settings incase i screw it up. I was wondering if someone could give me some settings and ram timings i could set to get this cpu to 3.0 ghz if possible. Thanks .............
