    Re: Overclocking DC v3.5

    Been doing my shotgun approach over the last few days with lots of #@*%$#@. Notablly is the fact I could no longer get the original stable 3.55GHz to work. Also along the way Ratatat "showed" me another quick and dirty stress test.......Hyper Pi, Super Pi on steroids. http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=211

    This basically run Super Pi on all cores at 100%. My new toy!

    However the snit is back in the fact that I had to re-flash the bios for the 5th time after a BSOD. It was at a max boot attempt and when it came back up it couldn't find my video drivers and had to reboot before they could be found again. Also another "sign" it is time to re-flash, besides not doing a reboot, is the bios menu would go to black and white as opposed to the stock "colors".

    Under S & Gs mode and max vcore (1.6v) I did manage to get the system to boot at 17 x 221 = 3.756GHz but it seems that cpuz latest is having validation issues (http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/....php?t=241841).

    I was able to get an 8M run in HPi at 17 x 219 =3.725GHz



    Now back to getting my notes organized and posted while still trying to figure out the re-flashing issue.

    EDIT CPU-Z is fixed with latest revision......

    Can't seem to find Q & C (C & Q? ) in the bios however there is "PowerNow" sitting where it usually is. Same thing?

    Re: Overclocking DC v3.5

    Overclocking and fatigue is not a good mix! Especially when trying to overclock two different systems. Was complaining to uddarts and undersea that I couldn't get close to values I had had eariler and thought it was because of the boot issues. That has been resolved BTW all I had to have done was to clear cmos before re-flashing, but thought "I'd be cool" and do it differently. Any way it turns out I was trying to match the TA790GXE / 945 values.....no wonder I kept BSODing!

    Hope to be back with some useful stuff a little later.

    You just buy PCs to overclock, or you actually use them all? Lol! Might resell them who knows. Wish I had more than mine, but wife won't let me touch hers after the mess i've been through with mine.

    Actually became possessed with mATX builds and what I could do to customize the cases and make the systems fast. Like we've said oc'ing can be addictive!

    Actually was trying to settle on a four system folding farm but the wife hit me with an ultimatum so have to get down to two.

    Re: Overclocking DC v3.5

    Yeah, it can definitely be addictive -- was too tempted the other day to buy another processor, but decided against it. Might be homeless then when my wife throws me and the pc out in the cold winter air.

    I better just be happy with my Kuma, for now. But, need to get this raptor of mine RMAed so I can reconstruct my RAID 0 array, and blaze forth once again.

    The wife doesn't know about the TA790GXE / 945 yet so it'll be interesting for me too. According to ud this'll be me when she finds out. And he says that is candlelight as she's going to pop the beaker to the shed!

    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.
