I've been trying to overclock my cpu for awhile with some less than satisfactory results. I took my voltages off auto and set them to:
DDR2 Voltage-2.0v (stock is 1.9v)
NorthBridge Voltage-1.3v (stock is 1.1v)
SouthBridge Voltage-1.3v(stock is 1.2v)
CPU\NB VID-1.3v(stock is 1.125v)
CPU V-1.425(stock is 14.25v)
I've read a few threads of other people having trouble overclocking with Gigabyte boards (namely odd voltages). I've read a few overclocking guides for my chip and all they say is the CPU voltage they used is 1.375 and they could get up to 3600mhz stable on air. I have had no such luck (max so far was 3200mhz stable) and I am wondering if it has anything to do with voltage?
my current overclocked settings:
This overclock puts me at 3500mhz and boots into windows, however it blue screens after a few seconds on Prime95. RAM is usually 800mhz so with OC it is 833mhz, which I also loosened the timings a little, so that's not the problem.
I have a steady overclock now with 250 reference clock, 3250mhz cpu, 2000 HT link, 2500 NB frequency. The voltage I used to achieve this was 1.4V. It says that my cpu is 1.425V stock, can I increase my voltages above 1.5V as long as I keep my temps below 55C? I want to try and raise my cpu multi to try and get a higher cpu speed, currently at X13 of X14.5
