Sorry about that guys, i didn't think about my current system settings:
I disabled the following things in bios I left the Q-Fan stuff enabled, since the Panaflo is so loud without it, 2500 RPM instead of 1600rpm if left enabled..)
No-Execute Memory Protect
Memory Settings in Bios:
3-4-3-9 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) 800Mhz DDR2
Row Cycle Time(tRC) 22T Command Rate(CR) 2T, Write Recovery Time(tWR) 6T set to 2.2V
CPU voltage i still have it set to "Auto" in the bios.
At 12 Multiplier i boot fine, and i can run Orthos for 6+ hours without a problem,
As soon as i set the multiplier to 13, i can't be in windows for more than 2-5 minutes before it reboots.
I've looked at some OC guides, but i'm not clear if i have to up the voltage for the cpu if i only crank up the multiplier??? I understand what to do i guess if i want to raise the FSB, but i'm not touching the FSB, just the multiplier..
Does anyone know for sure if i should or should not crank up the voltage for the cpu if i only want to raise the multiplier?
Thanks for the info, i know what you mean about the CPU Costing $$$
my heart is in my throat every time i think about uping the vCore. lol
you should read the OC guide for c2d's on this forum, it will explain everything you want to know and when to change the FSB or raise the vCORE.
Yup i did read it, but since i've never done it before i'm kind of nervous, i'm running 3.46Ghz as i write this, i raised the vCore to 1.375, in cpu-z the voltage reads from 1.36 to 1.384 it fluctuates, is that normal ? or is it messed up?
