I dropped my multiplier to x8 bumped up the FSB to 425mhz = 3.4ghz system seems ok havent started benching yet but in control panel where it tells you CPU info etc its saying my CPU is 3.83ghz but cpuz says 3.4ghz. Has anyone had that before :S

Does the everest scores matter much. My cpu doesnt do too bad in the CPU Queen test

Not sure why Windows is reporting it as 3.83
What are your temps like?

Temps is another weird one lol. Coretemp reporting odd results while speedfan/everest are the same. Temps arent "high" tho.

Cheers

Your temps are good! I only OC'd my chip 7% and the temps rose 2-3 degrees.

Yeah the watercooling does a decent job , I was going to try pushing for 3.6Ghz as i have read people got to that on air cooling. So i should get more really with WC but i dont want to risk killing my computer lol & im not sure my ram will go much further.

sounds like too low vcore.
Elaborate?

~Lordbob
Insufficient voltage to the CPU.

Normally reboots, BSOD's, system freezes when stressing the CPU side of things tend to indicate the CPU is not receiving enough voltage (vcore).

Hey again lol.

After changing my FSB to 425mhz when i go to do the experience test on win7 it BSOD's with the code 0x00000124 is that because my voltage need raising?. Its set to auto in the bios & cpuz reports 1.376V. Is there anyone that can tell me what id need to set it to. My HDD made a weird noise after the pc rebooted sp done a test with seatools (making sure my hdd isnt dying lol) & it passed on the short tests. I havent done a long test yet. Also in event viewer i have this...

A fatal hardware error has occurred.

Reported by component: Processor Core
Error Source: Machine Check Exception
Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error
Processor ID: 3

Wich makes me think it could be the vcore after reading smarteyeball's post.

Thanks

Not much of an OC (2.66 to 3.15) but it is on stock cooling and, to be honest, I didn't realize it was even OC'd until I looked at the comp properties lol

Edit: Pushed it up a bit more...got it to over 3.3, but temps jumped into the 90s within seconds of starting Prime95.
