I have been determined to get this board to overclock... a litany of woe.

This project started with a Phenom X3 that flat refused to go over 3.0 ghz... Same with the X4 till I rest the bios, at least now it runs at default 3.4. From what I can tell what changed was the memory timings from 7-9-7-24...

So after searching a scrawlling notes on a tablet I have gotten nowhere, I cannot seem to find the balance it likes, I know the CPU runs at 3,.8 cause it was in a Gigabyte board.

At one point found this link, http://www.techreaction.net/forums/showthread.php?t=367, but anything here and the dang thing wont even boot.

Appreciate and New Thoughts or directions....

are you overclocking with bclock or multiplier?

 

Multiplier.. but it seems a FSB / Memory issue??? I have had 3.6 work for a bout 4 hrs after 1/2 using prime. I watch all temps so not heat...

Keeping the memory on Auto seems to help? when adjusting CPU Voltage and FSB multiplier ( tweaking voltage also)

I don't know anything about that mobo but i know that ASrock is well not the best brand for mobos.

 

But I have heard the mem timings can be fixed by updating the bios.

 

 

Black, I have no idea where you got this information but the ASRock 890FX boards are great and overclock like a banshee. ASRock has a reputation for great motherboards.

 

I got 4.5Ghz stable on a Phenom II 975 and a suicide OC of 4.7GHz on custom water. On Air, I got 4.3Ghz(Aftermarket)

Run memory at stock with timings of 9/9/9/24/1T. Disable cool n quiet and all power saving features. Run Hypertransport at 2000 MHz and NB frequency no more than 2600MHz to start. Vcore 1.48-1.55V depending on temps and CPU/NB voltage at 1.25V to 1.325V. What revision of the 965 do you have?
