Ah that's a kick in the teeth...
Nasty. I put it to 1T, and it finally booted into Windows. 5 seconds in, BSOD and restarted.
Running 2GB of ram in dual chanel(tis in dual mode?)all 4 slots?this makes things more unstable,1 stick is better,alot of overclockers use 2x256 for better timings,more stable.You have a 3700+ san diago? this being 11x default multiplyer and yet it doesn't like 11x?
No no no.
2x 1gb stick in dual channel.
The processor is fine at 11x stock.
The thread was made, because my processor became unstable at anything over 2.6Ghz. I am trying to work around it.
Currently, I have DDR400 at 2T (1T will crash my system). HTT 250MHz, HT Multi 4x, CPU Multi 10.5x at 2625MHz, running stable. Prime 6 Hours fine.
Now, I bet, when I put my multi to 11x, giving a CPU speed of 2750MHz. The computer will hate it, and it will fail Prime tests.
Note, when my computer is at these speeds, it doesn't bceome unstable. But it fails Prime tests. Which would effectivly mean it's unstable anyway.
Double post.... sigh.
I upped the CPU Multi to 11X, giving 2750MHz, and my computer freaked.
...so did I.
Is my CPU nackered?
As I said... I think you have a bit of a bum CPU, pure and simple. Back off it a bit.
Yep. I have.
I guess taking it back is out of the question. ;)
Well, I will just grin and bare it. It isn't a huge dilemma as it runs fine under 2.6. So no big deal.
I wish it were possible to overclock Intel processors. But supposedly they "lock" them.
You can overclock them. In fact. They are much easier to do so, than AMD. Because AMD have their own memory contollers on the Chip itself. AMD are much more touchy.
