Problems OCing 1100T

I've had this processor for about 6 months, and haven't been able to OC it much past stock. I was able to get it to 3.6 Ghz but would eventually become unstable after a few minutes of gameplay. The temps max at around 45 C and then things go downhill quickly, eventually crashing and blue screening. I've heard that these can go up to 4.0 and stay stable, but mines craps itself early. I've only been OCing by using the multiplier if that helps. Everything else is a stock settings.

I've also got a 92mm Zalman copper fan, but don't know how to increase it's RPM's to lower the temps.

I run the 1100T, And here is the settings I use to get 4032mhz stable http://i49.tinypic.com/3fp92.jpg

Just note that every chip OC different, And the Motherboard could cause it to be stable or unstable at different settings, I did have to enable LLC in my bios to my Vdrop wasn't so much at load. My 1100T hits 4.0ghz when my bios voltage is set to 1.52v and is stable prime95 for 3 hours. If you over clock it with FSB, watch the CPU-NB, once its to high, it can cause problems, same witht he HT, keep the HT between 2000 - 2400mhz and you should be stable.

I followed the OCing guide pretty closely to try and get better results. I increased the voltage to 1.4375 and set the clock to 3.8 Ghz. It booted up to the OS and ran 3Dmark06 fine, but BSoD'd every time with prime 95.

I dropped it down to 3.7 Ghz and it stayed stable. I got on DayZ and it blue screened after 30 minutes of play.

Dropped it down to 3.6 and it was stable on DayZ for 3 hours and eventually blue screened.

So now I'm back to totally stock settings. I'm thinking that either my motherboard is the problem, but would like to rule out the CPU first.

I'm tempted to go back to my 720 BE, because I could OC that to 3.8 Ghz with no issues at all, and by just using the multiplier.

I believe you may require a better mobo, i have my 1100T stable @4.0ghz on an Asus 990fx evo with out issue, but it wouldnt do it on the 890fx evo i had before it.

I also had to do a bios update on this board before to even support the CPU. I'm hesitant about getting a 990 because BD sounds like it was a dead end.

Still no success. I blame the mobo.

Yep it will be, again get this mobo, Asus M5A99X Evo, BD may be bad but this mobo will also support the upcoming Pile Driver.

Turned out it was the board. Upgraded to an ASUS M5A99X and was able to OS my 1100T to 3.9 Ghz with no problems. No blue screens or errors on Prime95, and temps are staying below 65 C when maxxed.

Nice to hear, thanks for the BA, PS i bet you could push it to 4.0ghz and join the club.

I tried 4.0 Ghz by just raising the multiplier, and it was stable on Prime95 for about 7 or 8 minutes before one of the cores started to through an error. I didn't bother running it at 3.9 and it's been stable on everything i use it for.
