Check my sig for system specs. I am awfully perplexed that I can't get it stable above 976MHz


Here's what I have so far:

CPU @ 124/31=984MHz
AGP @ 82MHz
RAM @ 3-2-2

Windows apps, NFS IV and V will run no problems/lock-ups...but I can't even get 3DM2K to start first test and Star Trek Elite Force locks once you get into a shootout with the Borg


Even at 976 it is a little iffy! BTW...CPU temps are 29ºC idle and 36ºC load respectively.

I've already given you whatever advice I can in your previous posts. But I'll bump it up so someone else can respond.

3dmark is very sensitive to oc'ed cpu's, (as are some games), try running Prime95 (www.mersenne.org) if it quits with a illegal sumouts or hardware errors etc. it'll mean ure cpu isnt stable at that speed, if so u can try to raise the core voltage to stablise it.

Aren't registry errors normally associated with RAM? I am currently running at 990, @ 1.94V, but of course 3DM2K will not even finish first test? I set RAM to 3-3-2 and still no dice. At 2.0V I get Windows Protection errors


It odd because I had it boot and run fine a couple of times at 1,008, but the other morning whilst booting into Windows I got registry errors. Go figure! I guess I may just have to suffice with 976!!

i've got a soyo 6ba/w u66 not 100 but same damn boards...anyhow...i've got a p3 800 slot in it and can't get past 1008 stable cause no peliers yet or not enough voltage...i'm cranked at 10% but its only 1.82-1.84 i'm gonna mod my slot1 to either 1.75 or 1.85 volts to give more flexability
then 10% should get up to 2.0v...i wish i would have gotten a fcpga instead...i'm really not lookin forward to cuttin pins...
to the point i think its not the memory cause i have the same memory too only 2 sticks of 128meg....no problems there i hit 150+at 2,3,3 already...my sys has no problems runnin al day long at 1008 but no 1066 yet...remember i'm only runnin 1.85ish vcore i'm surprised the xtra vcore u got going on doesn't help the cpu at all? and kinda bummin cause i want like 1100+ out of this by the time im done...so maybe the xtra vcore will help me...but my temps are alot lower too like 22c tops after 100%load forever..liquid cooled no peltiers...i think the problem is somethin with the video card underclock ur vid card and see if u gain any stablility at higher speeds...then maybe u will have some idea...
