Hi everyone i just want some advice on what voltages etc i should increase next. I have a mostly stable system, but it crashes after a while when doing a prime95 torture test. What i want exactly is what voltages i should increase and how much i should increase it by.
Here are some of my system specs
Q9400 @3.553 GHz (Bus Speed 444Mhz) (Stock cooler, but upgrading to a Zalman CNPS9900MAX coming in a day or two)
KHX 1066 4GB (5-5-5-15)
Gigabyte EP45 -UD3 rev 1.0
---- Bios settings ----- clock chip control
CPU clock ratio: 8x
CPU Host Freq.: 4444MHz
PCI-E Freq.: 100
C.I.A 2: Disabled DRAM Perf. Cntrl
Performance Enhance: Standard
(G)MCH Freq. Latch: Auto
SYS. MEM. MULT. 2.40B
DRAM timing selectable: Manual
CAS LT: 5
tRAS: 15 MB Volt. Cntrl.
Load Line Calibration: Enabled
CPU Vcore: 1.34375V
Reference 0.772V MCH/ICH
All on auto DRAM
DRAN voltage: 2.2V Others
also, update your bios to the newest version, sometimes that helps. i had a problem getting passed 3.4 with my q9550 but when i contacted msi they sent me a beta bios and i easily reached 3.8. i decided to undervolt my cpu and keep it at 3.5 for longevity. the bios made all the difference.
Yeah bios might help. I would say decrease your ram voltage by a little then test again, bear in mind 80 - 90 c is awfully high, just so that you know, tj max is 100 , yes, but that doesnt mean you have so much legroom.
AS for you to know the higher the v core = the higher the temps. Try with just a little below the value you set and test.
