Pls refer to my sig for the spec.

 

I was unable to move over fsb240... was using Kingston Hyperx KHX3200AK2/512... even with divider still the same 166/2-3-3-7 & 200/2.5-3-3-8 ... i try on 250fsb but failed... wanna know my ram was CH5 / BH5 ? Izzit the ram problem ? Or my proc ?

 

i take out my ram and tested on another P4 2.4c Northwood/ Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 and i can do 270fsb on 166/2.5-4-4-8 ... I dun think it's ram problem already since it can move over 240fsb on other pc.... My current amd rig can't even boot into windows on 241fsb... hang while loading winxp... i dun have to do any setting/mod winxp to OC right ? I just feel that something is control/prevent i go over 241fsb... any clues here ?

 

Now i'm using 240fsb x10 1.7v / 1-1 2-3-2-5 1T 2.6v ... how come i need 1.7v to run my proc ar.... and for which option on bios can disable 1T ? I heard from my fren kenot enable 1T if wanna get higher fsb is it correct ?

 

My current rig was DFI nf3 250gb/ Athlon64 3000+ Newcastle .... is it my DFI mobo setting problem ? Any 250gb mobo user pls post me your bios setting screenie.

by looking at your signature, i think the culprit would be either one of these :

 

- the processor itself. not many NewCastle that could hit 2.5Ghz or above. have you tried lowering the multiplier to find your max HTT? try to use 3x LDT instead of auto. 2T mode is something that you wouldn't want to do.

 

- your power supply. the generic psu may limit your overclocking because the voltage 'quality' is low. fluctuation may happen at higher vcore which will cause instability

2T mode is something that you wouldn't want to do.

I still don't understand why people thing that the 2T setting is so taboo. I run 1T with my setup, and my friend's identical setup runs 2T b/c his memory controller won't handle 1T timings, and we get the EXACT same scores on every single benchmark EXCEPT for the synthetic memory bandwidth tests.

 

It does absolutely nothing for performance in games or with any other applications. Nothing.
