SR-2 question
Hi everyone.

I'm using an sr-2 motherboard, with 6 x 4gb samsung ddr3-1600 (yes the tiny black ones), two l5639 and watercooling for folding.

I was using a 203 x 18 combination until this week-end, as outside temp lowered below 20c, i tought i'd check what kind of max oc i could get.

Turns out i'm stable at 210 x 18 (intel burn test, y-cruncher and more than 10 frames of a 8101 wu all passed with flying colors). I'm open to any tips to go beyond.

Thing is i keep getting graphic driver recovery errors. How can i stop that?

A few meaningful voltages, according to aida64 and e-leet:

Both cpu: 1,364v
Both vtt: 1,39v
IOH: 1,37v
IOH PLL: 1,78v
Both DRAM: 1,56v

On a side note, is it normal i see temps is 45-50 c zone for the core 0 to 5 of each cpu (in core temp, real temp, e-leet and aida64), but i got cpu0 socket temp to 66c. CPU1 is in the same range. What are the readings i can trust to check my temps? socket or cores?

Thanks everyone in advance.

Sorry I have no tips for you, you may be at the limit that your setup will go. That is a pretty good overclock as it is.

I second that. Drop the OC by 1-2 blck. As for the temps, always rely on the cores.

210 bclk. Thats pretty darn good. I'd say you are at the max of those cpu's as well and 50 degree cpu's under load is very safe. :thumb:

Ok then. I'll stick with that. I'm just not very confortable with one temp (even if it is not relevant/accurate) in the 70 c range on a 1000$ setup...

Those are impressively low vtt and ioh volts for 210 too! I need 1.4 to break 200, 1.425 to break 210 on both my SR-2's.

Seems like windows and linux doesn't like the same settings: ubuntu freeze at 207 bclk, but is stable at 206. Windows was ok up to 210 bclk. Any thoughts?

Hmm, my sr2 was originally overclocked using windows, when I switched to Linux nothing changed. Just wondering why the switch to Linux, are you folding with it?

Googling does not return much of anything.

Wow, is this my old set up? Impressive OC! I never really tried much over 3.2GHZ, seems like you've really spent some time fine tuning!

Geez, I am not even there. I guess I'll need some WC. Can you install h60 on the Mountain Mods 18 case?
