NB Frequency Similar to HT Link
I have just Oced my phenom II X4 965 black edition CPU from 3.4 Ghz to 4.2 Ghz. I did it successfully but there is something very strange.
I tried to adjust the NB frequency but in doing so I was not able to get a stable system so I just set it to auto. I don’t know if it's safe to set it as auto or not. Should I adjust it to a higher frequency or let it set as auto?
I am attaching a screenshot below of the settings I have been using for almost 2 weeks and did not face any issues.
Using the above mentioned settings I didn’t get any crash or BSODs but I am still not satisfied with the results. My system is running very slow especially when it comes to the OS start up. The speed is very less, and I expected it to increase.
Finally,I adjusted the settings of NB frequency to 2205.1 with 1.340v and ran prime95 blend for 30 minutes. Fortunately I received no errors or BSODs. I tried to adjust it to an ever higher frequency but of no use as I got 2-3 cores getting errors on running prime95.
Any suggestions are most welcome to sort out the issue.
