    ^^ What he said, and please list all your system specs, and also, putting them in your "my system" bit will help.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Sorry, wasn't thinking!

    Memory Specs:
    Crucial Ballistix (Micron D9) - PC2-5300, with timings 3-3-3-12 at stock voltage of 2.2v.

    High I know but that's Crucial for you, they recommend it, rang them, don't know if you will need that much juice for those timings though or if you can run them at the speed with lower voltage.

    System: Main components - E6750, Thermalright Ultra-90 Cooler, Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R, Corsair HX520W PSU and Antec 900 Case.

    Thanks.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    You might like to read this article. maybe relaxing timings to 4-4-3-10 you may hit 800 stable. But as i said earlier you need to test your oc if you plan to run the oc 24/7. It may also be worth investing in some memory cooling, something like Corsair Dominator Airflow Memory Cooler With that you will be safe increasing memory voltage. a small increase allows a lot of overclocking so explore 2.25v

    Bear in mind all modules are different, as are the rest of the components, so your results aren't guaranteed.

    luck

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    It depends how the RAM has been binned.

    Its possible that you will get to 800mhz easily using that voltage, but you will probably have to loosen the timings to 4-4-4-12 or even 5-5-5-x.

    You may even be able to use less voltage if you go straight for the 5-5-5-x timings.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hi Clunk??How are u??
    i was away for a quite long time bt now,i m back.
    i got my new CPU cooler [Zalman CNPS9700] and Corsair Dominator PC2-8500 2*1 GB kit.
    i used ur guide and oc my system to 3.2 GHZ at 1.28 V vcore with ORTHOS stress testing for 8 hrs,max temperature = 65 C.
    ram operating over 800 mhz with 5-5-5-12 timings.
    i want to hit 3.6 GHZ but my system didnt boot at 3.48 GHZ.at 3.4 GHZ,system booted but orthos stress test failed within 5 mins.
    shuould i increase vcore voltage??
    i wanna do any kind of experiment with my E6400 as soon i will have QX6700.
    ny suggestions about how far i can go from 3.2 GHZ?

    Save your cash, go with the Q6600 instead of the QX6700. I suspect you'll probably get a similar overclock from them both anyway.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Thats because there is no "safe zone".

    I would say that you probably wont be able to go much higher with that CPU. The P5B's chipset strap changeover happens at 400FSB, which is where you are now (400x8 right?) So, from 400FSB to around 463FSB you lose a large amount of memory bandwidth, and you system will actually run slower because of this.

    You can use a lower multi to try and avoid this FSB range, but, to be honest, the chances of you getting stable at 500FSB+ arent great.

    So, wait til you get your new CPU.

    Unhappy Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hi CLUNK,i have a little problem in overclocking
    i cant overclock my cpu to more than a 250 mhz FSB, and in your guide i saw that you putted 266 mhz FSB,can you please look and tell me whats the prob?
    i can provide information that you need,here is a everest CPUID if you need something more just tell me

    P.S. is low-cost motherboard problem?

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    I'm not too familiar with Asrock boards, but I think if you poist your question in the general hardware section, you will get more people seeing it

    I remember on past Asrock boards, they were always FSB and voltage limited, and I suppose it is because they are a budget board.

    Sorry I cant be of more help.

    What does seem odd is your memory is showing as single, rather than dual channel.

    sorry wasn't clear wether you had 2x512mb in wrong slots or 1x1gb.
    it's just unusual to see
