X2 4400+

Recommended Posts

well i got another x2 4400+ hoping to get a better overclocker than my previous one.

out of the box my last one wouldnt do over 11x211 on stock voltage

the new one i got can do 11x236 on stock voltage passing prime95 on both cores.

im so happy

i should be able to get more out of it with more juice. my last one i couldnt get anything higher than 2550 using 1.52volts.

 

right now im at 2600 on stock voltage 1.32 volts

whoohooo!

 

this one seems like a keeper.. all i wanted out of my last one was 2.6 this one hits it on both cores out of the box ;)

 

yay

well i can do about 2.8 at 1.5volts but prime fails after about 30min.

since i really wont want to go over 1.5 volts :)

i will probably just run it at 2700 or 2750 :)

which prime has been running at great

Dunno really, well ive seen a few chips in the past get fried with more volts. the heat really wasnt an issue either. so im just trying to play it safe :)

Well i gave her a little more juice. at 1.52 volts i can do 2800. 255x11

 

if i do 258x11 prime fails in about 20min

When you guys mention Vcore, which setting on the bios are you referring to? the VID? or the one with percentage multiplier?

I tried my 4400+ X2 at stock voltage 1.3V and +104%, maxes out at 220MHz.

I'll be interested to hear this as well. I'm reading it as actual value determined through monitoring, approximately base times percentage multiplier.

 

I am trying to zero in on my max OC for my 4400 at the moment (on the slow train averaging about 1-2 tests a night). Memory timings at the moment are at 2.5-3-3-7 @ 2.7V not at the ones indicated below; I wanted to loosen things up during CPU testing. Other setting are as specified in the Overclocking Guide sticky.

 

I was using SuperPI with stock voltage until I started hitting errors at around 250MHz x 11. I then bumped voltage up to 1.3 and +123% which still led to errors. I also tried 1.4 and +113% which also had errors. Both cases, the CPU hit 51C at its highest temp. I then scaled back to 244Mhz x 11 with no errors at 1.4 and +113%. I'm wondering if I should be running two simultaneous instances of SuperPI, and if doing so will cause execution of one instance on each core. I'm guessing that SuperPI is not programmed to use both cores simultaneously so likely is only executing on a single core. I hope it was running on the core with the lower OC potential; otherwise, I may have to spend quite a bit of time with dual instances of prime95 to get to a dual core stable OC.

 

In any case, I ran OCCT at the 244Mhz x 11. OCCT hit a driver issue running under XP Pro 64-bit, which makes me wonder (only a little :)) about its accuracy on testing stability under this OS. Does anyone know if there is a 64-bit version of this software available? Anyway, OCCT indicated instability at about 10 minutes into the 30 minute stress test.

 

I'm wondering if I should bump the voltage base or multiplier at this point to see if I can take it higher or reach stability at the current settings. What are your views on the max Vcore for these 4400's?

David,

 

244x11= 2684 is not bad already. It's in range of max out on air for 4400+.

Try 2**x10 to see if you can get any better. I wouldn't go over 1.65 Vcore on air, but.. ;) keep an eye on the temp.

 

Also hope that you can stress test with dual prime or SP2004 to make sure it's stabled.

 

Regards.

I dunno about OCCT and XP64, but I know you can run 2 instances of superPI, but you have to create two different directories for superPI files, and launch them from their directories accordingly, then before you hit the calculate buttons, set the affinity using windows task manager, set one of them to CPU0 and the other to CPU1.

 

you will aslo see that your temp will go much higher that way on air. Also you should test with prime95 running two instances as well, from my experience @2600MHZ I passed OCCT and superPI(2 inst) with flying colors, but prime95 would fail unless I pushed the voltage too high, which resluted to temps nearing and trying to pass 60C, forget it I'm not ready to fry my cpu, and that's why I settled with 250X10 @2500MHZ stable in all tests at sweet low voltage (see my sig) running nice and cool 30C idle and 49C full load with 2 primes running.
