Windows 7: Post Your Overclock!

29 Apr 2012   #1721
Beta

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1 and Mac OS X 10.8.3
 
 

I have been trying to get my system running stable with DDR3 2400.

CPU-Z Validator 3.1

Since I made that run I have dropped down to 4GHz and DDR3 2400. However I am still unable to make it stable. This is all I want. My sticks are only rated at DDR3 1866 so you can tell I am hard core about overclocking.

Thank you

Im sure if i had a Fatality board

I would be hitting 4.7 I really don't get why my v-core won't go above 1.449 ?

these chips take more then 1.5 just to get over the 4.5 mark which im just barley cutting it and the Vdrop makes it look under 1.42

ello chaps.
i got adventurous today so i thought id see what i could come up with i tried various combinations of multiplier and fsb and only had a few bsod's i ended up with this oc, 4.214ghz mutiplier x20, fsb 210 @1.35v(set @1.365v).. memory @1684mhz 9,9,9,24,41,2T 1.66v
if i went over 213 on the fsb it wanted more vcore than i wanted to give(i want 2keep my idle temp below 37c)
i did get 4.3ghz with mem @1704 with 213 fsb, x20 multi and 1.375v vcore but my usable ram went down to 8GB which it does if i need more vcore. i only set a goal of 4.2/4.3 anyway and am happy with the 4.2.
im gonna upgrade from my H50 to a H80 soon so may have another attempt then. my temps are still good, idle 37/38c and maxed@ 51c during intel burn test. so all good for now
i did enjoy myself though

Two very nice overclocks chaps!
@Solar, I tried 4 ASRock Fata1ty 990FX Pro boards, all junk and ASrock says I don't know how to clock and they test every board that is returned.

cheers folks but it turns out its not quite stable. it survived intel burn test but it did'nt survive battlefield 3 lol. its known for not liking oc's much. u think it just needs more vcore?

Try a vcore bump at the minimun step your board has and try it for a few hours/days. then bump again, but stay below 1.4V. It will likely get hotter, more volts=watts=heat.
