my barton oc... 2500 to 3200

i got it running at 200*11 @ 1.7 volts... stepping AQXEA... slk900u 49cfm 92mm fan.. idle around 20-24C and load around 30-34C.. room temp is like 15C... this a good decent overclock? i tried 200*11.5 but windows crashed... blue screen and rebooted (windows xp)... the cpu is cool enuff tho...hasnt been over 35C...very top its hit is 34C... so i like the temps... just wondering about the xtra 0.05 volts... also its very stable...ran prime95 for 5 hours and no problems...

  1. Well done!

    have you tried more voltage to get 11.5 works?

  2. What kind of memory are you using?

    -Intel PIV 2.4C @ 3.84G -Asus P4P800 -OCZ Gold 2x256 3700EL memory @ 256mhz 2.5-3-3-7 -Sapphire 9800pro @ 490/780 -SB audigy -80G Maxtor Diamond Plus9 Ultra ATA-133 hdd -450 Enermax PSU
  3. Thats a wrong cpu reading for sure! 20c idle is better than most water cooling setups. I would say your mobo takes the reading from the sensor under the cpu or is off by 5c+. The 900u is a good cooler, as i have it installed on my 2500 running at 2300mhz/1.67v and its idling at 41C with a 60cfm fan/some arctic ceramique, an open case and a big 12" fan blowing over the case and its about 16c in here atm. My mobo takes the reading from the onboard cpu diode i believe so always seems high.

    Also 5 hours prime is nothing. Try 12 hours one day, then 12 hours another day to make sure the psu is giving the cpu the juice at all times it needs to stay stable!

    I don't mean to sound like im flaming you, thats a nice overclock you have there. :)

  4. Well I was hoping to get an answer from him of what ram he's using because if he's using pc3500 then he can probably use loose timing and get to 225FSB. It's so true the mobo temps's always off. Sometimes i can't even trust the diode temperature which i read from MBM5, since it's telling me my cpu's cooler than my ambient temperature.

  5. Oh and tbw m8, have you ever tried raising t(ras) to 11 or 10 instead of the usual 5 or 6? I read a thread on this over at hardforum and they said it gave them better performance. I tried it at 2-3-3-10 and gained a few fps in the lobby test in 3dmark 2001se over 2-3-3-7! I think its only for nforce 2 mobos though....

  6. huh, speeduk are you sure you're not addict on speed? Jk, I thought tighter timings gives you better performance.

  7. LOL m8. Im not joking. Its to do with return values or something at higher fsb's. @ 166mhz fsb/memory lower setting is good but @ 200mhz+,10 or 11 is better for some reason.

  8. Wow your room temp is 59 degs. you must live some place cold or your enerngy bill must be really high. Also that 20-24c is full of sh$t. Even with a water cooler the temps would not be that low unless your sticking ice in it. Hell my room is 75f or 24c and my cpu runs at idle of 104f or 40c and at full load 114f or 45c and I also have a water cooler.

  9. sucks on my mobo i can only go to 8.

  10. im using corsair pc3200 LL twinx 512mb...um current settings r at 2-3-2-6 or watever... spd settings...ill change the 6 to high and see if it makes a difference... btw there is something wrong with my temps...yesterday mbm 5 was reporting like 20-35C... today (im running prime95) its hitting like 43C...wierd...something is going wrong... and on my abit nf7-s rev 2... winbond 3 sensor is reporting -48C... and the only things which actually report real temps r windbond 1 and 2... diode and funny number ones giv -58C readings...temp hit 44C now...well yesterday was pretty dam cold... i think it was more like 12C... today is nice tho.. so maybe y its 10C higher...dunno anyways ill tell u teh temps later once i work them out...
  11. There´s alot of bs about temp readings, where and how do u read the temp ???

    open case and a big 12" fan blowing over the case
    ----------------------------------------------------

    HEHE
  12. I use MBM, sandra and bios, they all tell me the same thing. Currently its 20c in here, 29c mobo temp and 42c cpu temp (2405mhz/1.8v). Having the fan blowing over my open case takes 2-4c off cpu temps and 10c off system temps and lets me keep my 9700pro @ 350/340 completely stable! My system just gets faster and faster. Gone from 11,000 3dmarks with my 1700 pally @ stock - 15850 with my 2100 @ 2240mhz - 16100 with my 1700 @ 2305mhz - 17200 with my 2500 @ 2405mhz and slight oc on my 9700pro. I tried 208x11.5 (2392mhz) and its not stable, how I wish I got some corsair 3700! Looks like I've found a good 100% stable config at last. And its still pretty quiet and runs cooler than my original 1700 pally at stock speeds on 1.78 (49c idle 58c load with case open) LOL.

  13. Where can you get the barton 2500 stepping aqxea? I cant find it anywhere?

    F-DISK-Format-Reinstal DO DA!! DO DA!!
  14. hmm my [-peep-] 2500+ is about 49-52c idle (doesnt dropp much with open case either) i have 1 120x120 front case fan and 1 80x80 rear case fan, the most wierd thing is, i use to run it @ 200x11 before the summer and temp was about the same ( i guess i have to reseat the heatsink ).

    Think im gonna buy a new cpucooler anyway, but what air (not water) cooler should i buy ???
  15. Get the best you can afford. You won't regret spending that bit extra on something like a 900-u. What heat sink do you have atm? And what speed u running that barton @ ?

  16. 49-52c idle is when i run it @ 2500+, my current heatsink is falconrock II

  20. y did u post that 4 times? And are you using the stock fan for falconrock2?

  21. yes im using stock fan, and lol nothing happend so i keept pushing the button ^^ sry 4 that.
  22. Try to switch the stock fan to a Smart Case Fan 2 or something more powerful that'll give u much more performance.

  23. thx, I will try that and reseat the heatsink. Should i buy artic silver and how do i remove old paste from cpu ?
  24. I use TIM clean. I bought it from a local comp shop. It works a treat on both the core and the heatsink. <A HREF="http://www.modsynergy.com/Review 3.htm" target="_new"> click here </A>

  25. Hey speed, got my barton at last. check my thread in the Overclocking CPUs section.

  26. k i just did another prime95 test (on blend)... i ran it for 17 hours and 30 minutes with no warnings and no errors... so i think this will be very stable...so its 200*11 @ 1.7 volts and the load temp is about 45C... and ill get the idle temp later,once i get the 120cfm 92mm fan replaced (fan blade was broken) ill stick that in and check the temps... so is 45C load good for a 49cfm 92mm fan?
  27. k got the idle temp

    IDLE - 30C
    LOAD - 45C

    ive seen other people post with 5C difference between idle n load... ive got a 15C difference, is that normal or is something wrong...?

    thx
  28. Mike, what fan r u using?

  29. Every system warms up with time. When I first put my pc on, my cpu idles at 43C and after a few hours, the temp goes up to 52c full load, and then idles at 48C. It just depends when you take your idle temp.

  30. scottchen im using a Sunon 92mm 49cfm 2700rpm 34.5dBa fan... soon to be replaced with a sunon 120cfm fan on like 7v on my rheobus...(it says it roughly halves rpm)
  31. Ok, yeah then 15C difference between idle and load is normal. Most ppl who says they have about 10C difference is because they're using higher powered fans.
