System is as Signature says:

However I cant get it past 3.4 yet i managed 3.5 on air!

I dont see what has changed I have just got the latest Bios update for the mobo, I was wondering what sort of CPU Vcore i should be running at the mo i got it at 1.7 but it will run lower if needed? Also memory timings are 3 3 4 5 and Burst length is 8

DDR Reference voltage is @ 2.65V

Come on Will Smith you da man whe nit comes to intel help a fellow inteller out ;)

Cheers

Paul

yeah minus 23 idle about -5 or -6 under load

do you think thats what it is just the vcore being upped would stop it from crashing

coz what happens is it posts fine but hten when windows just logs in it crashes back to boot up??

Cheers

nahhh i went up to 1.85 v core and just upped the fsb 5 mhz and it wouldnt post :(

theres gotta be something more i dont think my memory is holding me back as its pc 3700.

Do you think i should maybe try to tighten the mem timings rather thatn having them as relaxed as possible maybe that would give more stabiltity? ???

Cheers

lol ok your want my opinion.

 

3.4-3.6 is normal for air cooling on all "2.4 C's"as far as maxing it out. Past that u really need water or vapor. Although you have vapochill. Which is strange why your not getting the same o/c. to eliminate the memory problem (to find out if that is the bottleneck) I would lower all your mem timings to 3-4-4-8 or the slowest possible still keep a 8 burst length though. Also after lowering your timings go ahead and set it to run at PC2700(333mhz) speeds. That will tell you if your memory is a hold back. I know myself when you get 3700 or 4000 it is actually really hard to hit that. I believe on my Pc4000 i have i got to about 480 and then it bottlenecked on me. Try that for a start.

 

If you didn't change anything else that should be athe problem. As far as vcore is concerned just cause you have vapochill you still have to work about setting it to high. After a certain point the electrical signals within the cpu bleed into each other and you can fry it that way. I have maxed my cpu out at 1.925!!!!! Although it is insanely high it still runs fine. I would not try to keep it that high. I was on the thin red line or it dying on me lol. Luckly it didn't. Just watch out. Max I would go with vapor is about 1.85 for a stable constant o/c. Any higher and its really not worth the risk to keep it there for normal use. I hit my vcore just maxing it out.

 

The memory could aslo be effecting it in a diff way. The best way to max your cpu out it to reduce down to single channel memory so if your running dual channel i would just take one of the sticks out if you want to max it out. If you want to max your entire system out then keep it in. hard to believe but when i hit 3.6 I was running PC2700 as PC2100. try that it might also work if you are running DC memory.

 

Well Hope i might have answered some questions just holler at me if you need some more info or if you have any questions. GL bro.

Will you truly are a brainy Bugger ;)

As you can see you were right i banged the Ram Frequency down to 333mhz and this happens :)

Natrually though I am still not happy as you can imagine I wanan squeeze every last inch out of this ###### I can go another 5 Mhz higher so FSB is @ 270 but i get crashes as in PC just resets but V-core is only @ 1.75 and temps are still low sop would you now up the Vcore to say 1.85V ??

and see if its more stable?

or maybe tighten the mem timings as much as they can go?

Cheers mate
