Default i found the problem

well i fixed the fsb issue

first thing i did was flash a mod bios to the motherboard.

ABIT NF7 SERIES : D22 A1BK R2 TURBO EDITION
cpc=1t

then i purchased a 50 dollar digital multimeter

tested all rails and molex

all above default even when prime95 is running torture test

dropped my chipset voltage to 1.5

and boom

running 460 fsb totaly stable at the following settings

cpu 10x230 @ 1.875
ddr 460 @ 2.77 @ 11 3 3 2.5
chipset 1.5

all games and apps are now stable

kick *** memory
I finnaly made some headway
omfg

Default fsb update

currently at the following setting totaly stable

cpu

10x multi @ 1.875 v

chipset 1.5 v

ddr @ 11 3 3 2.5 @ 2.8 v @ 470 fsb and @ cpc=1T

over 3500 read bandwidth in everest

wow what a difference

not sure if it was the 1.5 v chipset setting or the new moded bios

all I can say is damn

seems the top speed for this ddr is between 234 and 240

I loosened the timming a bit more but no stability

i tried 11 4 4 3.0 but nope

currently pc at idle is 118 f for the cpu and 81 for the chipset

is that ok for temmps ?

cpu gets to 134 when gamming, is that too high ?

this has turned out to be very rewarding for me. took alot of patients and testing

my god

and why do the new amd 64 get such high mem bandwidth, i am seeing over 6000 mbps with pc 3200

why are they getting so much more bandwidth ?

is my mem controller old tech ?

or because its intragated in to the new cpu's ?

thanks again

Yes, and its true Dual channel DDR, where as XP CPU are single data path to the chipset.

Default fsb update

well after months of overclocking I have come to a conclusion.

nothing seems to be 100 % stable over 400 fsb @ 1t

i am formally resigning from overclocking

this has been kind of a let down for me. I have spent too much money and its taken way to much of my time and the end results are a bit disapointing.

Here is my complete findings.

buy a cheap power supply that will pass multimeter testing. based on your wattage needs.

motherboard that runs at a 400 fsb at 1-1

a 2 ghz cpu of any kind that will run @ 400 1-1

ddr that will do 5 2 2 2.0 @ 400

and the video card and storage system apropriate for your needs.

final statement.

overclocking is fun but its only for screen shots.
its not for any real usage because of stability issues inheirent with current hardware of our time.

Using an OEM Meter will really not tell you anything, you would need to Oscilloscope to really see a problem with the PSU.

Also I would try and relax the timings if you will over clock, stability can be a tricky at times, but running 1T command rate and or the fastest timings does not always give the best performance.

That completely depends on the software and what it does exactly.

Default strange findings

check this out
i been useing a Zalman copper/aluminum heat sink for a long time now, the round one with 92 mm fan.

I recently took it out and cleaned it all up

I heard that some times oil and such sink in to the metal base.

and I had noticed that my cpu temps we rising above normal for the last 6 months or so.

So turned on a burner on top my oven to the high setting and let it get red hot.

So grabbed a pair or vice grips and sat the heatsink on the hot burner.

after about 2-5 minutes and after the hs was very hot I saw the most amazing thing happen.

in the middle of the hs where you apply the thermal past.

a trickle of smoke then.... a pool of clear liquid the size of a nickle come right out of the metal before my eyes , bubbled for a few seconds and totaly evaporated leaving no trace of anything but bare metal.

I thought it might have been water but the hs was super hot by then, and water would have evaporated long before that point.

I let it cool reapplied arctic ceramique and shazam my temps were like it was brand new and 10-15 degrees F lower than before.

this is so far, a unknown effect. I have researched this but have found nothing on this event.

I speculate that the liquid was some type of oil that had soaked into the base of the heatsink, but from where it came from or exactly what it was is still unknown.

I have since super heated all heatsinks in posession and had similar results with 75 % of them.

and my system runs alot cooler all around.

cpu chipset gpu hard disks all have lower temps now.


note..

the gpu and chipset heat sinks both trickled smoke after 3-5 minutes and after they were completely clean before heating
