Default Re: Let's overclock my CPU!

So I have been getting a lot of errors lately on P95, and I found out why. My OC is not as stable when the memory and FSB is unlinked. After I linked it, and chose "Sync Mode", I am able to run Prime95 without any errors.
Instead of keep upping my volts to maintain the 3.65GHz, I decided to lower the FSB instead. I'm just going to try to maintain a 3.5GHz OC.

EDIT - This is for my information only in case I had to reset the BIOS.

FSB
Clocked Speed - 3657.5
Multiplier - 9.5X
Memory/CPU - Linked
Memory Ratio - Sync Mode
FSB - 1540

Memory
4-4-4-12-1T

Volts
CPU Core - 1.33750 (unstable)
CPU FSB - 1.4
Memory - 2.000
nVidia SPP - Auto

Fine tuning now, and since I think 1.33750 is too high, I am going lower on my FSB to get to 3.5GHz Clock.

easily up to 1.45. I wasn't personally doing the OC, so I don't know how well it handles voltage. Pending on his final clock, I can get a general idea of it. But I'm not suggesting any higher than 1.48 right now.

Hey uhh...Teny. Go into BIOS and check your 12v readout and post back on that. 11.15 is hopefully incorrect.

On the System monitor in the BIOS says the +12V is 12.03V.

CPU Core - 1.28V
CPU FSB - 1.28V
Memory - 2.00V
+3.3V - 3.26V
+3.3V Dual - 3.26V
+12V - 12.03V
+5V - 4.99V
+Vbat - 3.06V
