Help me get a measily 2.6 GHz
I have tried everything I can think of to get from the original 2.4 GHz to 2.6 GHz and she's not wanting to cooperate. I really can't go much further than 2.52 GHz.
The 2.52 GHz is with the multiplier at 12, the HTT at 210, and the RAM indexing at 200 MHz (1:1)
I have tried changing the multiplier to 11, the HTT to 235 and the RAM indexing at 166 MHz. I run PRIME95 and on the first test I get an error that says something was 0.5 and was expected to be 0.4 or less.
So, I upped the voltage on the CPU and it still had the error. Next, I raised the voltage on the RAM and still had the error.
Then, I tried changing the multiplier to 10, the HTT to 260 and the RAM indexing to 133 MHz. Got the same error before and after raising voltages.
Is my power supply to blame or do I just have a crappy overclocker? I know the RAM won't OC work a crap because it's value RAM, which is why I had to change the ratios (indexing in my BIOS). By the way, it's a ClawHammer core, but I've seen 2.9 GHz out of a ClawHammer.
