Hello, i have been trying to overclock my cpu over 3.9 ghz @1.4685 V , but everytime i get to say 4.1ghz @1.55 V it gets to hot and crashes out of 3dmark06 at the cpu test. I know there are some really good overclockers out there who might be able to help so please any ideas??
3.9ghz @36-7c idle 47=50c gaming(CRYSIS) Iwould like to beat my 3dmark06 score of 20131 with 2x 8800 gtx with now my new xfx gtx280 xxx oc 726/1524/1310
whats ure prime95 load temps that will show you how hot its getting under the cpu test. also thats a big leap in vcore for such a small ammount of fsb, have you tried upping mch cos the quads need alot more than a dual.
i have a 13x multiplier and if i dont up the vcore to 1.5+ on over 3.9ghz it won't boot the system. I have a thermaltake bigwater 760i water cooler on the cpu and prime95 crashes even @ 3.9 but is stable on 3dmark06 @ 20040 points and gaming (crysis, farcry2,hl2..etc) no crashes ever. My temps writing this now @3.9ghz are 15c motherboard 35c cpu 42c,37c,40c,42c cores 42c gpu 36c gpu ambient
Thanks in advance.
have tried as you suggested but will only boot into windows not stable with a vcore of1.575v keeps bsod. Will probably just keep my settings @3.9ghz and be happy with that, just wanted my QX6850 to go further maybe try again in the future
