Strange New Oc'n Experience...

I've started to just up the FSB by 1mhz everytime then restarting and seeing if it boots (doesn't hang at start-up and start beeping.) Every 5-10mhz I then boot up past windows and log in to stress test with [email protected] for about 10 minutes :lol:. This works quite well for me; I'm getting pretty high with only a 1.75 (i think.. i'd have to check again. CPU-Z says its steady @ 1.65-) vcore. At 210mhz right now.. going to continue later tonight. I'll keep you posted.

 

(FYI: I backed down from the one in my sig to see if I could get higher doing it this way ;) )

 

Anyone else tried doing it this way?

thats the only way i do it. i dont have time to burn in overnight for every 1mhz increment. essently when it stops booting. i stop at the safe point that did boot and then i just game for about2hrs. if it doesnt crash its stable. if it crashes il increase the voltage and stress it, but other than that i know what my limit is. 276 :angry:

whoa, you have exactly the same OC as I do with your setup, but I got me a ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Rev. 2 mobo. I can get 2.45, but its summer and want to keep my temp down since I have my 9800 OC'd pretty high still on my water setup. Nice technique. I am gonna redo my OC when its winter.

Well, I like to work up to my limit. I'll go 5-10 Mhz at a time with just benches and reboots until I get that feeling, then I get serious about testing it. I take it up to where I think it can go, run benchmarks, run Folding and some games for a few hours; if it can handle all that, I'll start up Prime95 before I go to bed.

 

It's always fun coming back in the morning to see if you made it through the night. Well, sometimes it's not fun. :P

:withstupid: Yeah, I'm with all of them...I'm pretty haphazard about it at lower speeds. When I'm still finding the general area of where my max is, I basically go until I can't get into windows anymore. The more I fine-tune it, the more stability checks I do. Prime95 for several hours is always last. Doom III and 3dmark03 are usually my first ones, lol.

Err... is 1.825 too high of a vcore? Thats what im at right now. Not sure if its stable yet with this :lol:. Also, I can change the multiplier in the bios, but it doesnt change the multiplier when I look @ CPU-Z/ right click on my computer... eh. I guess that means its locked?

Well I cant run 220mhz fsb stable @ anything less than 1.825vcore. Ach!

Any pointers? I have 1gig dual channel pc3200 ram @ 2.5-3-3-8. 1:1 FSB:DRAM. well.. everythin' else is in the sig really. I dont feel very comfortable running at this vcore even though im getting low 40s full load :lol:. Anything else?
