I'm pretty new to overclocking, but not completely. I played around for a few hours and got it stable at 3.0ghz. I'll just provide a CPUz screenshot rather than try to figure out what I have everything set at. Just from tinkering with it I feel like the memory is limiting me. If I set the memory voltage any higher than 1.9v I get a BSOD either on inital boot up or as soon as I start a program in XP (32-bit) it seems.
I don't fully undestand everything, but I have the FSB "unlinked" from the memory speed in my BIOS. Anything over 800mhz for the memory and I have to reset the CMOS because it doesn't turn on. And anything over 3.0ghz and it freezes or doesn't pass SuperPi or Prime95 for more than a few seconds. Where I have it at now seems completely stable. Temps on the cores haven't gone above 61*C under Prime95 for 10 minutes.
Sound like memory limiting to anyone? I have the timings at 5-5-5-15 1T
As for the "VID" listed in CoreTemp, can I change that?? Nothing I do in BIOS seems to make it change for me. I noticed other people's were lower than mine.
Also SpeedFan doesn't register the correct temperatures, they're all 10*C low for me, anyway to fix that?
I'm hoping to see the 3.6ghz mark.
