colelt1 Posted December 22, 2005 Posted December 22, 2005 I have tons of info from every step I took, at home so if you need it just ask me. After a month of "burn-in" at stock volts and 2.22ghz, I overclocked from 1.35v to 1.55 with .025 increases (found the max 24hr stable for each one) I have this memory: http://www.gskill.com/f1-4800dsu2ff.html I am in the middle of overclocking at have hit these numbers with a 9x mult [email protected] [email protected] (24hr stable) 2.5ish @ 1.525vcore kinda stable (8-12hrs) 2.5ish @ 1.55vcore kinda stable (8-12hrs) I have hit a wall, I increase the core and dont get anywhere. Right now all my other volts are as low as they can go, 1.2vltd , 1.5chipset, 2.5ram. Im a little over 2.5 ghz and can prime for 30 minutes then crash as a control point to work with. I tried increasing LTD to 1.3 then 1.4, no help, then my chipset 1.6 then 1.7, no help... they all crash at 30 mins. Vram at 2.53 crashes at 30 mins vram at 2.6 crashes at 7 minutes vram at 2.7 crashes at 1 min vram at 2.8 crashes at 1 min. This is my question for now: why is my ram supposed to run at 2.7-2.9 and will only run 2.5-2.6. If you look at the link provided above, you can see its clearly says 2.7-2.9v. And I have checked voltages with a DMM. Temps are 38core, 42chipset, 55pwmic I thought my PWMIC getting in the mid 50s were causeing the crash, so I put a small fan on it and got it into the mid 40s but it didnt help. BIOS and Ram is set with everything on defaults besides voltages, and mults (ltd is on auto), and memory is set up for DDR600 specs (1t 2.5-4-4-8 from their website and the box it came in) 1:1 mult, even though im running DDR558, and I have had it 24hr stable at 298x7 at 1:1 to test the max bus and memory speed. Maybe my cpu just doesnt like 2.5ghz, and I will stick with 2.45ghz with lower volts. I have removed the IHS off the processor, and am using artic silver cermaque, and have a tube AS5 coming in tomorrow and will see if it will help any. Also my core 1 has never crashed its always core 0, and no matter what volts I use my cpu has never gone anything over 37-39 now, the only thing that goes up with voltages and speed is the PWMIC but the stock cpu fan mounted above it brought it down to mid 40s.
