will my 4200+ x2 do 3.0ghz stable???

Recommended Posts

hi all,

 

Im very new to all this so please bare with me lol.

 

my setup is follows:

 

450watt psu not a cheap'o one lol

OCZ Gold 2x 1 GB PC4000 DDR500 RAM

AMD ATHLON 64 X2 4200+ 4.4 GHZ 1MB 939 DUAL CORE (TOLEDO CORE)

Gainward Bliss nVidia 7950GT 512MB

Dfi LANPARTY UT RDX200 CF - DR MOTHERBOARD latest bios update RDXDC23

THERMALTAKE AQUARIUS 3 WATERCOOLING

 

I have got it running at 2.97ghz and when i tried battlefield 2 it crashed.

 

i am currently running it at 2.91ghz and memory running at ddr529.8 but battlefield 2 seems a little jarky sometimes.

 

i know i really should have a very good read through all the thread stickeys ect... but thought i would cut all the reading short and ask one of you experts and getting my setup fine tuned as i think i may have my memory timing slightly wrong or something?

I am sure this cpu could do 3.0ghz

 

my memory setup in the bios is this:

 

200mhz/fsb :01/01

cpc - auto

tlc - 3.0

trcd - 04

tras - 08

trp - 03

trc - 11

trcf - 16

trrd - 03

twr - 03

twtr - 02

trwt - 03

tref - 3120

dram blank interleaving - enabled

 

dsq skew control - auto

dsq skew value - 0

dram drive strength - level 8

dram data drive strength - level 2 (reduced 30%)

max async lantency - 8.0ns

read preamble time - 6.0ns

idlecycle limit - 256 cycles

dynamic counter - disable

r/w queue bypass - 16x

bypass max - 7x

32 byte granularity - dissabled (8 bursts)

 

my cpu.

 

ldt / fsb - x4.0

cpu vid - 1.550v

dram - 2.6v

sb pcie - 1.8v

nb analog - 1.3v

ldt bus - 1.5v

nb core - 1.3v

 

if anyone could give me any help if these settings are wrog and for me to get the most out of my setup stable for running games i would be very grateful.

just ran prime95 and got this error not very good understanding this program so any help on getting max speeds for my system would be great

We have a very good over clock data base here. If you don't wont all the joy of clocking and wont the easy way out. Just head over to the 939 OCDB and find systems with your CPU , and ram speeds and boards . don't have to be the same sat up. see what people are getting out of your ram and setting and then with the CPU. get back down to around 2750 and run prime and once passed go up from there. and just so you know and everyones gonna say . That PSU is very very boarder lined. Make sure you got all power plugs. pluged in and i hope thats a 24 pin psu the very best 450 made would be very very boarder lined

these setting are for a manchester 4200+ x2 mine is a toledo cpu if that matters???

these settings bsod my pc when playing battlefield 2

 

tried this:

this ran battlefield 2 on single player for about 5mins the screen went black and sent me to visya desktop where the game had been stopped and not running or showing on vista.

 

so i changed to this:

this ran ok for a while then started to get a bit jerkey in battlefield 2

 

i am running my gainward bliss 512mb 7950 gt with ati tools 0.27 beta

 

core 653mhz

mem 883mhz

 

 

with latest vist 32bit nvidia driver 158.24_forceware_winvista_32bit_english_whql

 

did choose and install 158.24_forceware_winvista_32bit_international_whql for u.k where i live but had trouble installing it as it would not detect the software ect.. in install the driver to my graphics card.

 

teps i am getting idle are

 

cpu 37c

pwmic 39c

chipset 51c

 

can anyone see anything wrong with these settings for getting my pc running nice and smooth?

get a better powersupply thats a good start that will limit u 550w min i would say.

 

just move up slowly prime 95 8 hr test every 100 mhz or less.

 

add volts to the cpu to help pass prim but be carful 2 mutch and its dead.

with this heat is not the big problem as mutch as to mutch volts

i belive with the x2 u shouldent go over 1.6 thats why i do with opteron 2x cores.

dubbole cheek in the form what ur max voltage is iv killed chips that never got over 45c with to mutch volts

You may want to make a signature per the forum rules.

 

Sigs aren't required anymore....but they do help when asking for help.

Ah nice. I wonder why we did away with that rule?

 

Oh and don't use any of the battlefield series games as a measure of stability. Even a rock solid overclock (much less stock) will be the subject of much buggieness and crashing.
