The help Mekrel OC thread

Recommended Posts

Well, seems like i got my disappearing sata and IDE channels sorted so when my OCZ Rev2 2*512 came i decided it was time to overclock.

 

Firstly, some information for yall:

 

A643400 NC

ADA3400AEP4AX

CBAZC0440GPCW

 

Im on 10/15 bios, and so far I have got here with these settings:

im at 2.8 Vdimm and i tired using an 11 multi to meet my desired 2.7 ghz but keep getting a driver_IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS error on windows loading screen :(

 

More CPU voltage? what is the option in the bios called to raise this? NF3 bios is kinda big lol.

Not sure I will try that tonight.

 

but I thought because its just the divider im trying to up that it may well indeed by a chip limitation, as shes lovin it at 250 and so is the ram, but as I said i will experiment withh a divider to find my chips limitation.

now, i cant go over 1.55 volts for CPU in bios? Or do I have to use the special CPU VID? because i dont understand how that works.

 

SuperPI 1M @ 34.

 

I had AGP @ 67 but I heard DFI board prefers 66 instead of 67 which other nforce3 boards seem to prefer, think thats what solved my BSOD.

Yes, you will need to use special cpu vid.

Your vCore will be whatever the base voltage is multiplied by the special cpu vid.

So, if you want, say, a vCore of 1.65v, a possible combination would be 1.50v x 110%.

(1.5x1.1=1.65v)

Hahaha.

Yeah, I get the feeling that NF3 is the outcast little brother with a hunchback now.

Personally, I see it as the old car you have, still running fine, that you thrash around the corners.

Yeah gotta admit that i aint really bothered about nforce4, it seems abit too much enthusiast for me as in i dont really have the water cooling / phase change people are using with the NF4 boards with thier Fx55's and etc.

 

Although I know you dont have to go that far :)

 

Hopefully it works out better, and I get whats coming around the corner. Looking forward to the ATI Chipsets coming out.

I'm waiting for the dual core cpu's to come out before I evolve into NF4.

Hopefully I'll be able to convince myself to get an FX processor and watercooling, but there's a part of me that loves getting a deal for my performance..
