Help Overclocking Venice 3800+

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm pretty new to overclocking. I bought computer about a year ago, meant to over clock, started a bit with no luck, and gave up. Now, I've decided to try again (because I just bought a new nVidia 7900 GTO :)), but with no luck.

I've tried following the overclocking guide in the sticky in this forum, but no luck - I can't even boot to windows with anything. I mean, I would at least expect it to get to windows at 210 instead of 200, but nope.

So, I've decided I need some help from the experts :). My system is as follows:

 

LANPARTY NF4 Ultra-D with 704-bta2 bios
AMD 64 3800+ Venice
2GB OCZ Platinum Rev 2 3200 (4x512mb)
ATI Radeon X800XL (for now, the 7900 GTO will arrive soon)
Audigy 2 ZS PCI
Maxtor 6Y160P0 160GB ATA133
Seagate ST3300831A 250GB ATA100

 

My mem settings are as recommended in this thread:

with the exception of CPC, which is set to disable because I am using all 4 slots.

 

As I said, I can't get to even 210 following the guide. I've tried lowering the ram according to the settings recommended in a different OCZ thread:

http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showpost....074&postcount=7

and then lower the DRAM to 100, and then follow the guide, but still no go.

 

Any tips on how to even start?

I used to have the same CPU, and just two sticks of the same memory. I was able to run it at 270 x 10, 1T - without a problem. That memory is super fast, but with 4 sticks, you will have to run it at 2T.

As I wrote in my post, I have changed the timings to 2T:

with the exception of CPC, which is set to disable because I am using all 4 slots

That is 2T. Anything else I can do?
