Need Help OC my X2 4200+/Venus

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I need help on overclocking my X2 4200+.I have it stable at 2.475ghz but cant get any higher.I know this chip can go higher dont know what to do.Please help I've been trying for 2wks now.My Goal is 2.8ghz.Thanx

The best thing for you to do at the moment is change your startup vid to auto and set CPU VID Control to 1.4 and CPU VID Special Control to 104% and try again.

Hey Kitfit1 Thanx, that seemed to work but its not getting any higher than 2.6ghz.I got it to 2.7 but it was not stable.Anyone that can think of something else please help.

I just ran prime for 8hrs and it just shut off.I clocked it down to 2.5ghz and prime is running for a day now almost.Dont know whats limiting the oc i think its my ram.

Did you look at the timings in the link I provided? Did you make any changes? A good overclock doesn't just happen. A lot of trial and error, a lot of research, and good hardware are all required. Well, good luck to you.

possible u are at the limit of your ram, try using a divider

LDT/FSB Frequency Ration = X 5.0

 

Change to 4 up to 250fsb and 3 over that. Atleast from my experiences I would try keeping HTT under 1000. Also don't be afraid to give it some more juice :) I'm currently running mine @ 285*10 with 1.425V, will do GGG with 1.55V. I really hate myself for not checking cache size before I bought it though, only 1mb compared to 4400+ 2mb :(

Back when I was doing a 2X4200 it was my Ht link that I had to watch if I went over 1000 I got into trouble. I think the deal was 11X255 at 1/1 on my GSkill 4000 and my settings' are 4,4,4,8 The setting's on your ram are alittle tighter try loosing them up alittle. Also a bargan basment OPTY-170 are going for about 110 or 120 at newegg and they will go over 3 if you have the right cooling equiptment. I have that same GSkill 4000 running at 516 right now with a .1 volt increase in ram voltage from 2.6 to2.7 and am extremely happy with my preformance,. Running a 8 to 9 hundred HT is just fine and wont get you into trouble like a 5 or 10 point's over will so like these guy's have said knock it back to 3 if your going over. Also at a 5/6 overclock you can get some nice number's with that 11multy you have. I started useing 11 and droped down to 10 and found that the best multy so far is 9 and I havent got to DDR-2 yet and they are useing 8 and 7 to get up to the highr clock's. and keep that cpu voltage under 1.55 and good luck.

yep i'd put money almost that its the ldt/htt multiplier. at 250 you'll want it at 4, above at least 275-300 set it to 3x)

 

most overclocks stall at or under 2.5 because people forget the htt multi

well i tried dropping the ldt multi to 4x and its still wont go above 2.5ghz.I dont know what else to do.I am at 1:1 with 227 fsb.It goes up to 245 but i get error in prime and it will freeze after a while

Have you tried to put your ram on a divider? try 1/2 then prime again. Just to be certain your ram isn't the problem.

Or try to lower the CPU/FSB Frequency Ratio to 10x and increase your FSB.

Btw... are you using coretemp?
