Ok I have put a new h\f with thermal grease on my CPU and ICS chip and my senser #1 which is supposed to be the CPU has me at 92f idle and 107-9f with a load but if I check with Hardware monitor in cmos then it is displaying between 110 and 137f.Is Mbm reading wrong or what I can boot into winblows at 933 stable but let me get near 140fsb then boom it post this damn 466 and right into cmos back at fsb settings.My ram is Micron 256mb stick -75 and it will go 140fsb in cl 2 or 3,please what can I try to get pass this 140fsb barrier.Im being lazy today and I havent tried the dip switches yet so please is there something I can do in cmos.
Oh yea I have a V770U video card Ref. drivers 384,and a Quantum 13 gb 7200 ka fireball hd.Im also hooked up to cable with a LINKSYS nic card out to my wifes PC.My nic is a Realtech TE-100.
MBM works perfect with my P3V4X. Your idle temps seem fine. Which heatsink fan did you use and what voltage are you running? I run my 700 @ 1.75v. To go above 140 you may have to go the Peltier route...
Maxout right now Im running at 126x7=882/1.65v.I bought this h/f here in town called Pro Cool.Its almost identical to the Tennmax P3 TF except the fans are 4500rpm.It also has the cutout slots for the cach L2 chips.Maxout can you get a gig yet?
Ive tried the increase in volt all the way up to 1.85 with no joy.I can run at 950/1.75v but if I try anything higher boom back to cmos at 466.Are you useing the dip switches?And are you useing a Alpha?And what is this changeing from the setting I choose back to 466 during post?It did the same thing with another P3V4X.Heck if I chose a setting with my BH6 it would stay put no matter what.The setting might lock up but it wouldnt change to 466 or whatever,this is real anoying.
Yea Ive done about everything except try the dip switches and install a air conditioner.What would be a danger zone temp to not go pass with this setup?And do you have a ICS clock generator and if so do you have it cooled?
Yes it is an ICS I haven't put any heatsink directly on it but I should. I have a cardcooler, looks like this...
It connects to the PCI/AGP card mounting screws. I moded it and have it rigged up to blow across my GeForce and onto the mobo surface. Several inches above that the delta's on the Alpha are exhausting into a 120mm YStech blowhole fan which is exhausting the heat from the system.
I think what is happening with you is that the Chip is overheating @ post and your heatsink can't get rid of the heat quickly enough. A peltier or waterblock setup would be able to cope with the rapid temp rise in the core.
There is also the possibility that the core may not be capable of higher speeds
but you have a lot of other things to try before we admit it's reached it's limits!
