Help w/ CPU-Z

Hey guys, for some reason I am stuck at an overclock of 3.7GHz. I am stable on prime95 but as soon as I up anything in the slightest I get a BSOD either immediately or in about 5minutes, I was wondering what your suggestions are for me to get more out of this OC as you guys are much more experienced.

Thanks in Advance!

  1. Hi,

    Have you tried lowering your RAM speed with a different FSB : DRAM ratio and then upping the CPU Multiplier to 19 with a slight voltage increase?

    I have not done this no. By RAM speed you mean what exactly? Sorry, I don't know what my "RAM speed" is currently at... I assume this is referring to the ddr3 1600 etc, you mean lower to like 1333? How should I configure my FSB : DRAM ratio do you think?

    Yeah your're running at ~1600Mhz at the moment (you can see this in the image you posted with CPU-Z under the memory tab) if you lower the RAM using a different FSB : DRAM ratio we can rule out the RAM as a possible cause for the issue your having, something like 1333Mhz would be fine.
    Sorry I can't remember what ratio options you'll have.
  4. Okay so I should lower it to 1333 and go from there, I wouldnt know what to do with my fsb/dram ratio thought...

    Yeah just lower the RAM speed to 1333Mhz, try a 19x multi and slightly higher Vcore if it's needed, watch the temps though, you don't want to be going over 62C.
