new rig, just OCed the poopy out of it!!

Postby ajrox » Sun May 14, 2006 2:49 am

my new rig:
165 opty @ 2.475 w/ 275 FSB
2gb pc3200 corsair XMS 2-3-3-6
dual 80gb SATA striped
evga 6800 gs OC ed. 4pipes/ 1 vertex shader unlocked 450 core 1.2 mem
lian li's antec clone {big server case}
big typhoone CPU cooler {scary to put on!!!!}
535 watt coolermaster dual 12 volt rail PSU.
asus A8V mobo

just OCed the poopy out of it!!
stock speed 1.8ghz @ 200 mhz fsb
OCed speed 2.275 @ 275 mhz fsb.

temps:
87 F @ 2.475 on air cooling.

some questions for you guru's out there:
how is my memory handling this???
i have not fooled with any settings except the FSB and the setting to lock the AGP/PCI at 66.6/33.3. had to do this as it would fail trying to start my raid array. locked that setting and it just kept going and going.
i peeked at 275 FSB but want to go higher. what is it i need to adjust, the CPU core voltage? if so how much shoul i move it in increments, where should i top that out at??
i feel i might be able to get more out of it as the temps look real good for the speed im pushing here.
thanx a bunch {as allways you guys}

It looks like you might have your CPU multiplier on auto. At stock speed 1.8/200fsb it would be 9. When you OC'd to 2.275/275fsb the multiplier dropped to 8. You might want to go into your BIOS and manually set the multiplier to 9, set your fsb down to 200 and work up from there.

The 87 deg F, is that when your machine is idling? You should run some tests that put a load on your machine to check for heat and stability. There is a program called Prime95 that is excellant for testing. Here is the site to get it from, http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=103. This program can be set up to test both cores of your CPU.
