    4400+ Overclock

    I got my new 4400+ today (had a 3500+), I hooked up my new Storm (and the 6 liter tank) on it as well.
    I tried overclocking it (of course). I got these results:

    10x240, 10x260 (2600) @ 1.45v (didn't try any other voltage) gave me Windows. Prime Benchmark en Super PI were Ok and I tried some others things (seems stable).
    I think that this is a good result (2600 @ 1.45), anyone?

    10x280 boots (1.45-1.5) but it doesn't even go to memtest.

    I do have a question. I had 1.55v as an option for my 3500+, it is gone now.
    Is there any way to get more voltage options (can anyone?)?

    One other thing, my 3500+ seems to be stuck on the (default) heathsink. I used AS5.
    Does anyone have any idea for a safe removal?

    Edit: How can I start Super PI or Prime twice (use both cores)?

    Use a hair dryer to warm the hs, then you should be able to twist it off. Take your time.
    To start two cores, double click twice!!

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    hmm..whats the stepping like? or what does cpuz say about the core?

    I'll try the program later (need to go to work).
    Double click twice didn't work, I tried it. Maybe I've got the wrong version?

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    O wait now I see it. A hair dryer?? To take of the core....hmm I's an idea.

    Edit: I got it off. I didn't need the hair dryer.

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    Once the TIM gets warmed up, by blowing the hot air over the heatsink fins, it should get flexible (at least a little). I'd but the cpu in a socket if I had a free one so you don't damage the pins. Regardless take your time, once it starts to twist it will eventually come off.
    If your holding the cpu in your hand DON'T forget about the pins as you start to lose patience. Take a break and heat the sink some more. Eventually it will come loose, as air gets between the cpu and heatsink (from the small movements. you will start with). It's half vaccuum and half adhesion of the TIM that is holding it on.

    That has never worked for me either. There might be an easier way but this is how i do it.
    Right click and copy Prime95.exe, before you paste rename it Prime96 (or whatever), Paste Prime95 in same folder. Start Prime95, set affinity to core 0, start Prime96, set affinity to core 1.
    This works on my rig but wont work on my wifes.
    So if that doesnt work, install Prime95 in a folder and rename the Prime95.exe Prime96 (or whatever). Install Prime 95 in a different folder. Run both Prime95 and Prime96. Good luck and i hope someone tells me an easier way

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    Thanks for the tip, that works fine. I had to alter the method a bit. I could not install it twice @ first. I renamed the directory and the .exe to prime96 and then uninstalled it. This didn't remove the program, but I could install it a second time now.

    The removing part of the cpu has succeeded as well, finally (normal way).

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    Do you have other results of this stepping (know where... // I'll look for them)?
    I just looped 3D-Mark 2006 CPU tests for 90 minutes on 10x260 and 1.45v (Bios).
    Other settings: HTT 4x260, mem 2-2-2-5 and 216/217MHz.

    I also started prime Super PI and Sandra burn in (doesn't loop whatever I do), this was stable.

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    I found this exelent help to start prime twice: http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16446

    It works here now.

    The trick is to make 2 shortcuts and to put -A0 for the first and -A1 for the second in the commandline where the program is started (at the end). After this you have to start prime via the 2 shortcuts and select 1 core per prime (so not the same core).

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    I made this shot while/after priming 32M.



    1.50v in Bios and 1.55v in Windows. This is the maximum voltage for this mobo.
    I am thinking of buying a DFI and put my 3500+ on this mobo (selling the 3GHz Athlon XP).

    I put the HTT on 3x245 and the mem on 192 MHz (by devider) so it is not on optimal speed yet.

    Good stuff. I just got my water cooling setup yesterday. So far I got 235 x 11 out of my x2 4400+. voltage is at 1.4 and mem is 1:1, HTT is at 4x. Idle temp is 35 c for both the core and case.

    Re: 4400+ Overclock

    Those are better voltages then mine has, nice.

    I will not buy DFI anymore as I have really a bad experience with their support on their forums (of course not pcper! pcper is doing ok).
    As a matter of fact I wouldn't reccomend DFI to anyone anymore. And I will advice my friends not buying DFI (anymore). And since they ask me....

    The Part 8 has more stuff for stability testing.
    If you run OCCT Sparks read here where _dangtx_ helped me a lot!
    Well if you use OcBible calculate the o/c exponents (you must do this)....
    Nice dual core o/c!
