I installed i7 950 with asus p6x58d mobo. tried to overclock but voltage fell from 1.84 to 1.7v.. I read to adjust jumper pi to 2-3. when I did this and turned it on, I had no screen at all. I then read to revert back to default voltage prior to moving jumper. WHAT damage did I most probably do to my new set up?
^ and this. I wonder why it didn't occur to me earlier. Around 1.4v would be what I consider the upper bound of reasonable overclocking. Any higher and you should be using a little more exotic cooling solution.
Worst case would have been you fried your CPU. Does it work when you revert to the old jumper configuration?
Also, if there is an option for Load Line Calibration (LLC), try turning that on. It's the feature than compensates for voltage sag when the CPU ramps up to meet increasing workload.
first . i wanted to thank you for your efforts in this matter,
I did change the jumper pin back to 1-2 and still nothing happened.
I assume to change LLC I would have to be on bios which at this point I cannot do. Is there another way, or am I just .....
I found another cpu on ebay for 259.00 free shipping
Well, we're down to only a few options. If there's someone you can borrow a LGA1366 processor from, try it on your motherboard. It's highly likely that you fried your CPU, if you really set it to 1.7 or higher.
