    Dont think that that particular Asrock will get you far in Overclocking or any of them will, something like the new Asus, Abit or Gigabyte seem the best to get if you want to get much further.

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    The DFI Infinity 975X like all 975X boards has a low FSB limit (around 350 is reasonable expectation), far better would be a P35 chipset board (with 500+ FSB pretty common).

    But! Your Asrock can definately handle 266 FSB cos it natively supports 1066 FSB processors, you shouldn't be hitting a FSB wall at 250.

    Not 100% sure but have heard some good things about DFI boards, I will still recommend what I said before. Plus with the Motherboards I said, you could always find the help here

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    well i just read in some papers that DFI is making one of best OC boards,and i was looking for around 100 euros board and looked at 975x or 965s i think, i liked that they have crossfire support which i plan in future... can you tell me some models that are around 100 euros 150 euros is max and rare case

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    DFI boards do generally clock well but in general they aren't as user friendly (i.e. easy to tweak and overclock) as abit and the like but offer a lot of potential in the right hands.

    You really should look to P35 boards as they are superior overclockers, newer board designs (native 1333 FSB support, though most 965/975X can do this no problem) and have guaranteed compatibility with future 45nm CPUs. The Abit IP35 series, Asus P5K and Gigabyte P35 are all widely reviewed, have a great variety of models (many that come within your price range) and overclock very well.

    The DFI P35 board is not yet available in the UK and likely to be extremely expensive, I'm confident the overclocking ability would also be excessive for your needs.

    If you simply want 266 FSB for that CPU you have now then it should be easily achievable with your current motherboard, by you "can't overclock more than 250 FSB" what do you mean by that? The option doesn't exist in the BIOS or you encounter instability, errors in Prime/Orthos or what? Without more information it is hard to help you.

    BSOD?

    I'm not sure how knowledgable you are with overclocking but most obvious thing would be to make sure that your memory is not being overclocked along with the FSB. How does your board work out the FSB/RAM ratio? It might be automatic, if so I'd try manual and set it to an appropriate value. Any overclocking guide and FSB range for the Asrock 775Dual-VSTA should be valid for your board too.

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    I have the E4300 and the ASROCK 4CORE.

    With my old AGP 9800 Pro and the C2D on stock cooling I could easily reach 300 fsb.

    With my PCI-E 7300 (needed shader model 3 for BIOSHOCK) I can only pull 266 FSB. Even with an XP90 with a panaflo.

    What are your temps? What PSU are you using? Infact what is the whole system..? Can you describe the way you installed your fan i.e how you applied the thermal interface material..?

    Try setting your memory, not on auto, but on 266. There are a few other settings that seem to help, including Vrm HIGH. I'll fish out the link to the guide. Don't give up on the ASROCK yet, cheap, but champion.

    Your memory is running at a ratio of 10:8! = 312MHz! Get it set to 1:1.

    I knew someone would pick up on this, the DFI 975X has hit 450+ (with mods) as has the AW9D-MAX but as I said: "a reasonable expectation" they don't hit anywhere near as high FSBs as P965 and P35 boards. For overclocking they just aren't the optimal choice anymore and I wouldn't buy one now. With quads that is an even more valid statement. Yes there are BIOS updates with 1333 strap and 975X boards can be modded for higher FSBs but I'm making a generalisation for a new buyer

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    For the OP, when you set the FSB do you see the PCI-E at 100 or more? If it is going up you need to set the overclock mode to ASYNC. If you set 266 or even 300 it latches up the PCI-E to above 100. This will cause the problems you have noted.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: help in overclocking E4300 please :(

    I will look and try your advices when i get home from work,as for thermal compound i puted it in a straight line like this '' I '' but i dont think its a thermal issue, as for pci-e i think it was 100 default and it grows with fsb so i will try async mode, memory is set to auto,i will change to 266 and tell you whats going on. Can you please digg that guide? I will also post you screeshots of bios
