    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    You're not the only confused one. Not sure I'm making proper sense of your post here, Oz. Your saying that at the default NB/HT you need more voltage on the CPUNB to stabilize the overclock?

  2. Re: OC'ing Kermit v3.0 >> Biostar TA790GXE & PII X4 945

    Have you tried lowering the NB to 1400 (1720 o/ced) to see if that fixes the issue, or lowering just the HT Link to 1720 to see if that helps too. Sounds like it's possible the IMC is causing some...

    Re: AMD overdrive individual CPU multis?

    Rarely does one core hold the entire overclock back, but it does happen. It is more common in quad and triple core (especially with the 4th unlocked) than in dual cores.

    My suggestion to most is...

    Re: Overclocking DC v3.5 >> 720 BE In TA760G AM2+

    There are a lot of theories as to what ACC actually does. Most believe it has to do with the processors internal timings. I, however, am not entirely convinced. Usually, ACC allows for...

    Jedi,

    A thought came to mind while reading your post. Have you tried unlocking the 4th core on your processor? I'm just wondering if you'd get better performance with the 4th core unlocked, and...

    Jedi,

    Core leveling options in your BIOS are the equivalent of ACC for the Phenom 1 class processors. The original ACC options were folded into the firmware of the Phenom 2's making them more...

    Re: Overclocking DC v3.5

    Oz has spread the overclocking taint all over this place. :) I had to take a new go at my two rigs as well; one running a 720 and the other a 945.

    Grr...need a few more mhz.

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    Oz, your 3DMark score is what's most impressive about your overclock so far. Truthfully, improving it nearly 33% has got to count for something; amazingly enough, it's more than just your CPU score...

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    TDP is one of those stats that's very confusing to understand. The Kuma is rated at 95W. I'd say a ~ guesstimate of his current situation would yield him ~180 TDP or so on his current processor. ...

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    Yes, that is why I like it. It enables you to see what is going on with all your processors cores. Also, gives you a pretty good gauge of early stability with some of the bigger tests (8-32MB).

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    Could be true, I remember when 7 first came out there were some differences in benchmarks, but not by much. ~200 points or so in 3DMark06 -- SM2 is much more processor dependent. My best guess is...

    I'm thinking that too; double-sided tape works great for putting fans where they don't belong.

    As for your case Oz; if it has some sort of "fan grill" try to remove it, and then either cut a...

    In a manner of speaking, yes. It basically runs the same calculation on multiple cores simultaneously. Great for seeing if one core is lagging significantly behind another.

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    Oz, can you be a tad more specific when you say "the scores you'd expect"? From my experience, Sandra is a very random application. One run it will be great and the next it is marginal, at best.

    Re: New motherboard, new adventure

    That's good. Amazing what a little $60 chip can really do with the right components. 600+ mhz over stock is considered amazing. Anything more you get past 3.3 is just icing on the cake.

    Oh no, Ozzy. I fear you have been afflicted with the overclocking bug. Unfortunately, there is no cure at this time. :)

    See...nice and balanced system. In regards to the HTL/NBF, it's probably at the limit. Remember, the Kuma is only 1800, so you have it near 500mhz over stock! :) That's good. I suggested trying...

    True enough, and I'm pretty sure he's pushing the limits to his processor on that motherboard. If he has ACC function, at best, he'd be able to push 150 or so more out of it. On the 770, he'd...

    I think the first question you need to ask yourself is how far you want to push the system.

    Oz, change your ram timings from 5-5-5-18 to 5-5-5-15-20. This puts them in-sync and will yield better performance and stability. Test it out with memtest or linx, both should show problems sooner...

    Geez, didn't expect you to blow the NB/HT out of the water, but glad it worked. I would suggest dropping it back to spec, and trying it @ 200 x 15.5. Might save you a bit of vcore. However, 1.52...
