    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hey ppl.
    I am back due to a bios upgrade.
    Eight month ago, I had a e4300 + p5n-e sli + ocz pc6400 2x1 gb plantium rev 2. And I was able to oc to 3.0GHz from reading this guide, but after I update the bios to the 0703 version, I was only able to go up to 2.75GHz stable. So I wanted to bump up the cpu more since I got some free time in the Christmas holidays. Any help would be appreciated.

    Heres my stable setting so far:
    1220(cpu's fsb) / 800(ram's fsb 4-4-4-15).
    vcore:1.43x
    vRam: 2.1x
    nbcore:1.4x
    vcore offset: auto

    I tried to go back to (3.0GHz) 1333/ 800 fsb
    But it just froze in the bios logo screen, and it wont even allow me to set bios settings when I press del(Had to reset cmos). So I tried (3.195Ghz)1420 / 800, and it passes throught the bios logo and bios posts messages, but stuck in loading window(black screen). I have tried increased the vcore by a notch each time(i bumped up to 1.5v), but it still doesnt boot. Hope fully someone can help me. Thank You.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    hows this.all i did was get my ram running 1:1





    question.my ram is rated to run at 1.8 - 1.9 v which should i take and why ?

    and yes i am a complete and utter n00b, at the age of 37 ,to overclocking.

    btw Clunk i've been looking at lots of overclocking posts\threads\topics and your is the easiest on the eye and brain by far.Thank you.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    1.8v i assume is for the same speed with lax timings, for example 5-5-5-15 and 1.9 might be for 4-4-4-12 timings. it's how it is on my ram.

    this thread is rather long and its making me sweat..

    im about to upgrade my pc and build a m8, both having quad more.

    can i ask whats reccomended motherboard wise at the moment and also a decent PSU to go with it ? some overclocking will be done to both, got to get at least 3ghz out a 2.4 quad init

    and can anyone get the corsair dominator DDR2 1066 speed ram, seems to be pre order everwere (for under a hundred tho)

    Gonz just get the 6400 ram and run 400*8 (will give you a 3.2ghz quad).

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Thoughts guys?



    Temps seem to hit a maximum of around 56, idle they're about 35ish. This is using a Scythe Mine (which may be orientated the wrong way round.. fan [==] instead of [||] and a couple of 120mm's with fairly bad cabling in the way. I've got a blowhole which i'm reluctant to use because it's fairly noisy.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hello,
    I was directed to this guide from toms hardware with the understanding it is the best of its kind and I agree. It is the most clear over clocking guide I have read.

    After reading to page 30 ( I will continue tomorrow) two questions arise.


    I understand that increasing the Front Side Bus is in effect over clocking everything connected to that bus including the audio, video, hard drives and USB expansion cards. I saw no mention of limiting the PCI bus or how to do so. Would you recommend doing this?



    Newer boards support 1033 1300 and 1066 Front Side bus. Would you advise lowering the multiplier and increasing the FSB to realize the potential of the board. This may a be more technical way of over clocking and if so please disregard it as this thread is geared toward novices (of which I am currently).

    I use one computer for a multitude of task and I prefer a stable system with a mild over clocking taking advantage of the performance increase available while retaining the stability of a stock processor.



    My situation:
    Asus P5e
    Bios 0502
    Antec 850w
    Q6600
    DDR2 1000
    Vista 64
    tuniq tower

    stock

    Cpu Temp on Asus Probe 29
    Cpu Temp in everest 26
    Cpu Temp on Panel 33
    CPU TempAI suite 31

    Are temps usually this varied between monitors?


    Kind Regards

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hey I'd just like to add (again) that this is the most bulletproof yet easy to follow overclocking guide i have found on the internet.
    JUst by familiarising myself with the basic steps (and more importantly the sequence) I have been able to overclock all of my core2 cpu's and i even o/c my BRAND new e8400 right out of the box (from stock 3.0 straight to 4.1) without a single glitch. My poor punished cpu never even got a chance to run at her stock speed. As soon as she was born she was already having around 35% extra flogged out of her 6mb L2 body.

    Thanks a bunch CLUNK

    Its people like you that keep the internet a great place to visit

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    A hypothetical example (well, might actually be quite real soon):

    E2xxx with 10x mulitplier and an FSB of 300Mhz.

    Does DDR2-800 actually make sense if a I run it at a 1:1 ratio? Wouldn't be DDR2-677 be equally appropriate with even lower latency ratings?

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Hi guys !
    Thanks to the gorgeous guide - got me to do my first time OC'ing (except some try with 286 decades ago ).
    My specs should be attached, so I'll go straight to point > 2.4 to 2.9 went OK (fsb 266 - 320), no probs, temps low (had to adjust vcore volts, on auto it gave just too much and went overheating).
    Tried another round, this time with FSB base, so fsb further from 320 to 400 (and adjusted memory ratio backwards of course, and increased vcore a bit, too)
    Well, started up, was running, but the data shown in both BIOS and OS were just CRAZY ... can't understand what that means, anyone having an idea what that could be ?

    Can't put direct links to screenshots due to rules, had to post like that bellow :-(

    sweb.cz/matej.h/1.JPG

    sweb.cz/matej.h/2.JPG

    sweb.cz/matej.h/3.JPG

    EDIT: As I didn't get any advice yet, I've managed to keep playing with lower settings in the meantime. Upgraded RAM to 4GB (2x2GB). Now it's running at FSB 320, so from 2.4 Ghz to 2.88 Ghz, v-core 1.3V, ram 4-4-4-12 on 2.1V, all stable with temps 44-idle, 54 under have load.
    Question is - should I try pushing more up, since I'm having this trouble as described above with FSB 400, and lower settings will get my RAM on lower frq ?

    Hey Im new on this forum. Btw its great. I have an E6600 @ stock 2.4Ghz and I am trying to o/c it to atlleast 3Ghz. I followed your guide but I cannot put the FSB : DRAM to the desired 1:1 as it just doest have that option in my BIOS American Megatrends Inc. Version p1.10 in CPU-Z it tells me that its at 4:5. Pls someone help me as you say that this is essential to do the oc.

    Re: C2D Overclocking Guide for Beginners

    Well I'm not sure if this is right but in my Not overclocking friendly BIOS on a Conroe Xfire eSata2 mobo I put the FSB on 300 so given that the multiplier on my e6600 is 9 it should be 2.7Ghz but when i check in CPU-Z it says its 266 @ 2.4Ghz. I selected the 300FSB in the bios and then saved it and exited.
    Btw every time I turn on the computer it turns off after 3 secs 3 times and then it start, I dont think that thats normal. If this is any hel my temperatures are +-50 @ idle and +-60 @ 100% load.
    PLS some one HELP ME !!!
