Odd occurance

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have this strange thing happening. I have been running 312x9 on 1.475 v, 166 divider, 3-4-4-10, rock solid, 18hrs Prime stable. Now, the part I can't make sense of: it runs without a hiccup for a week, but today when I boot up EQ2 or BF2, it crashes. I bump the volts up to 1.5v. Work perfectly again. Few hours later, crash. Bump up to 1.525 and so on till 1.55v. At this point instability (when I say instability, I mean it won't do the verify DMI pool data thing, just sits there for a few seconds then reboots) I'm really scratching my head. So, I go back to the BIOS change the setting 311x9 and 1.475 v again. And here I am at Windows :) Now, I havent tried a game yet so I don't know what will happen yet, I'll keep this updated. But can anyone make sense of this?

I agree with esco. you are realy pussing that CPU and may have reached the max long befor the 312X9 . bumping up the Vcore may not be the answer you may have to take it down past the 311X9 you have and go to like 270X9 and start over . the instabilaty maybe due to heat and this is where the instabilaty is comming into afect . try taking it down and then playing a game and see what happens . may even be the memory controler on the CPU is maxed out and once you start to put the screws to it fails . prime and all them stress tests can't give the realy time stress that a game will give it .

yeah get the official bios from DFI and that should make a diffeance that is the one I have N4D623-4 is the one I am using . It has gotten my CPU to 2.75GHz rock solid and stable too!

I'm using 6/23 -3. But 311 wasnt stable either so i brought back down to 300 at 1.475v. Stable again, played EQ2 for about 2 hours with no problems. Just can't understand why it would go sour after a long time of stability.

Ok, update. I'm having the exact same problem at 300x9 now. I've got no idea what is going on now. Maybe a memory issue? They are stable in memtest but obviously stability tests mean nothing atm.

In my PC when the ram is set too tightly, it will also hang on the DMI pool screeen and reboot. Sounds like a memory issue to me. BF2 is also heavily memory dependant. Relax the ram slightly and see what happens.

Without any changes in BIOS? weird... At first I thought about your PSU rails, but with that PSU...

 

P.D. What is that (MCW6002) you write after your Vcore? a multimeter? (never used them sorry :) )
