Re: GA-X48-DQ6;Q6600 - OC/Memory Problem
OK, I've set the static tRead value to 11 as suggested and I made it into windows at 450 MHz now, not sure if that did the trick as I also set my memory to 1T yesterday, but I think that would only decrease stability.
All other settings remain unchanged.
RAM gets 2.06V at +0.25V in BIOS, if I set it to +0.30 (which is already in purple) it gets about 2.13V which is overshooting the 2.1V so I figured I'd keep it lower.
What are the maximum safe BIOS values for FSB and G(MCH) overvolting?
I'm going to try shoot higher with the FSB to see where I top out, if it fails at 460 MHz what settings should I change further? Loosen more static tRead value or bump the voltages up a bit?
On a side note this wasn't really a CPU OC, the only reason it's running at 2500 MHz is I kept the multiplier down to avoid any issues that might be caused from a too high CPU frequency as I really want to determine the max FSB first.
As for the temps the way it is now I'd say that:
RealTemp 1st value = Core Temp Core 0
RealTemp 2nd Value = Core Temp Core 3
RealTemp 3rd Value = Core Temp Core 2
RealTemp 4th Value = Core Temp Core 1
I'll try playing with the settings you mentioned a bit to see if I can get 460 MHz as I couldn't last time.
