I'm not able to get it fully stable at 2.7. I accredit my RAM , its TCCD but won't do well without >2.8V. Anyone else doing anything, do I just have a dog?
well folding still doesnt run your cpu at 100%GodsMadClown said:Yeah. I just realized thet I shouldn't have posted discussiontype stuf in there. Sorry. Feel free to delete it.
Anyhow, I do Folding@Home with my computers. They are loaded 24/7, and I like them to be very stable, but very fast. So, I'd like to see the Prime95 validation time moved to 24-48 hours.

GodsMadClown said:Yes, it actually does. I have the command line version set to run as a service with idle priority. This means that it runs on any idle time that my CPU has. My task manager graph is always pegged at %100.
thanks for the thread cell. and i'll change that. doing stability testing at 2.82ghz thoughcell_491 said:hey eclipse you have my oc down under air you should put it under budget water cooling or sumthing

ashmedai said:P4 uses the equation FSB * Memory Divider = Memory speed. Because of the way it's designed it helps a lot if you stick with 1:1.
A64 uses the equation CPU Speed / Memory Divider = Memory speed, where the Memory Divider is determined by [CPU Multiplier / Memory Ratio] rounded up. So 1:1 on an A64 would mean the memory speed is equal to the CPU speed, which is pretty much nonsensical.
do you really need that much voltage? i find that when i give my core too much voltage, it becomes less stableProOC said:If I dropped the HT to 3x I could hit 2.8ghz but it wasnt stable. I am going to mess with it some more by loosening ram timings, but I am thinking it may not help as my ram is rated for 433 and I'm only at like 196ish with that divider. Anyone have any ideas what might be holding me back? I'm using water and my temps dont ever go above like 40c it seems.
no, feel free to drop the divider to get more mhz out of the cpu. core clock speed is way more important than ram clock speed anyhowRasha said:
ashmedai said:Oh yeah, and on the 3000+? Don't count on overclocking your memory much. Getting the CPU maxed out and stable at that high a HT is pretty much all it's going to do. I could get the memory up to about 245 for a little bit at a time, but mostly it doesn't want to go very far over 200 once you're in the neighborhood of 300 HT.
