As everyone in the IT world is influenced by TH's d805 4.1g review. I decided to DO IT. so I brought everything from newegg or tiger and tried to overclock it. I AM SORRY if you think probably 10000 people has asked the same question, but i have read through everyone of them and none has the solution to my problem...
here is my rig.
geil ddr2 2x1gb 800mhz
2x300gb sata 7200rpm raid 0
silverstone tj06 case (returned the antec p180 cause its too small) (customized the wind tunnel so the tubbings will fit though it =)
2x120mm + 1x80mm all LED lights ... matches with the G1Turbo blue lights
silverstone Strider 600w 12v 18a 12v 20a eps PSU
1x dvd dl rw
koolance exo2 + koolance 305 3/8 water block
xfx 7900 gtx 512 ... not sure how to over clock the 7900gtx yet... still researching... =)
ok... anyways... computer turns on fine... in bios i changed the fsb to 205, i had to use 1.7 for vcore... but in the gigabyte bios f4 version, it has something called system mulipler clock or something, anyways, i had to set it to 1.5, it comes in 2,3.33,4,5 auto... anyways, the more i adjust it higer the higer ram's fsb reads out... please tell me if i am worng... anyways... Currently as i am writing to you, i am at 4101 vcore 1.7 and i am running the memory at 5-5-5-15... but whenever i tried to 3dmark06 or super pi, the system shuts off... is it my psu or is it my ram?
sorry guys, again, i am just a girl who likes to try cool stuff... please don't flame me or something cause THATS NOT COOL :wink:
p.s. i had a raidmax 630w psu i returned it and got the silver stone cause with the raidmax 630w i can't even go up to 3.8 without crashing...
p.p.s. this is my first overclock, this is also my first DIY, and this is also my first time writing on TG cause i am always scared that someone will tell me to JUST DO MORE RESEARCH... well i have =(
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE IN ADVANCE TO HELP ME OUT!!!!! THANKS!!! P.S. WHAT LCD SHOULD I BUY? i was looking at the 19" 2ms viewsonic... or should i get Widescreen?
right now... i just played some cs and the system seems fine... i ran SPEEDFAN on the vcore... this is what i found... core#1 doing arvage 1.6v up down 0.5 ... and core#2 is CONSTANLY at 1.9v <--how wierd... anyways... on CPUZ it says voltage 1.632 but sometimes changes to 1.648v core speed 4101, multiplier x20, fsb 205.1 bus speed 820.2
the memory is at 153.8mhz, fsb ram 4:3 , 5-5-5-15 bank cycle time 20
on easy tune 5 it says 4100.76 + 48%
cpu 205, voltage 1.7 ratio 20. memory 307.00 voltage 1.9 agp/pci-e nothing here... pci freq 33.00 <-- are you referring to this value?
