whats your highest stable overclock? and what voltage do you have to run to get it?
we are the same looks like. the 'E4' rev's start maxing out around 2.7ish. but I know of someone on here who has a 'E6' rev & hit 2.9Ghz on it (some ppl have all the luck!!!)
E4 = Manchester core
E6 = Toledo core
what voltage are you running? i can go as high as 2.8 but then im not stable in all games. same with 2.7.
currently just in between 1.45-1.47v to push it further I need to enable my onboard 8phase power system, but that usually f**ks up my system alltogether when thats turned on (Im not the only one it happens to!) but since yours is hitting 2.8Ghz I might try overclocking mine a bit more. at least to 2.7Ghz i think...
i really need to get a mobo with voltage controls...i can only OC mine to 2.1 ghz stable with the stock voltage that i am stuck with..
I couldn't go higher than this didn't wanna risk frying the CPU since they don't make the x2's for socket 939 anymore, only had to go 0,3v higher than stock to reach this...
Edit: I lowered HT to 3x and ram to 333mhz in the bios
Edit2: idle temp's 32 and full load playing games around 50 or so, my whole system is watercooled by Zalman Reserator 2.0(cpu, gpu and northbridge)
I have a Toledo and run it @ 2.583 stable @1.5,thats as high as I can go on this board.
mine used to do 2.4ghz on stock volts (had 2.7ghz at one point), there slightly hit and miss but 2.6ghz is easily reachable
I am at 2.4 on stock voltages. The thing is that my motherboard does not have high voltages so i might soon be making a volt-mod. Though i tested mine on stock voltage and can go as high as 2.64 but it fails to load windows due to the lack of voltage
I would have done a 'O/C' run earlier but my PSU is lacking juice IMO Ive already tried to be more conservative but getting rid of a dvd-rom (as i have a DVD-RW which can more or less do the job)
next step is getting 2x 1GB RAM modules to cut down on power consumption & also f**king around with my mem controller when i start to O/c. otherwise everything looks hopeful that I will itleast be able to get to 2.7Ghz
hey you mean you cant restart your computer? you have to turn it off then turn it back on pressing the power button?
yes tommy, you know exactly what im talking about!
i can run 2.6 @1.4v but temp is to high so i run @2.4 1.325v getting ready to watercool this thing...then ill push it
I run my 3800 x2 rev e4 at 2.5Ghz and I only added 0.0125 to v-core. been running on that speed for almost 2 months now, completly stable.
I have a Gigabyte G-power Cooler, temp reached a maximum of 58.
I have a Thermaltake Big (Muvaf**king) typhoon & O/c'd temps never go over 32'cright now, its 25'c idle but load its 30-31'c. so those who have problems with their x2 3800 temps & are thinking about gettting water cooling.....your savior is here!
Its a good HSF!
I used to run my personal E4 X2 3800+@2400MHz@1.4Vcore.
For some reason I couldn't get it to work @2500MHz even when i set the voltage to 1.5~1.6V.
Another E4 X2 3800+ I set up was able of 2650MHz@1.52V.
Hey there Guru's ive just been playing around with my overclock and got it to 2.4, im just wondering if i can push this further than it already is, im using a Arctic 64 Freezer Pro. Below are my cpu-z Screen shots. My Mem is Kingstion Hyper-x, pc3200 2gb dual channel Kit. Rated Timings are 2-3-2-6.
Just looking for some tips really to get a little more out of this baby.
bump the HT down to 3x, the ram down to 333mhz instead of 400mhz(you won't loose any performance) give it 1,4v and pump that baby up to 2,7ghz man!
edit: actually since those ram can take frequency 2400/10 = 240 then you could probaly give it some extra vcore and pump the processor to 2890mhz so the ram will be 2850/12 = 240
at 2700mhz you probaly won't see that big temp diffrence, probaly about 5-10 degs, at 2850mhz which probaly calls for a vcore around 1,5-1,55 I'd say the temp rise will be a bit larger...
Update, ive got it running at 250Fsb with the Ram too, i might give your suggestion a try Exal but also see if i can get the ram to 270Fsb too with the processor, ive not changed the voltage yet on the ram so i should be able to get a little more out of it
If you really want you can skimp a bit on the timings and that OC would be EZ, but really no need to comprimise when you can just bump down the ram, that worked really well for me, and you practically don't loose any performance doing that and it opens up alot of space for extra mhz on the processor
Edit: forgot to metion if you HT gets over 1100 it won't boot.. which is why you have to bump down the HT to 3x(no performance loss)
