    Re: E7200 Cooler

    To overclock to 3.16GHz, should I just up the CPU host frequency to 333MHz and make sure the RAM is running at stock speed of 800MHz? Also, is stock voltage OK for this clock? Anything else I need to change, and should I disable 'performance enhance' on my mobo?
    Thanks

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Or, should I change the multiplier to 8 and have the FSB at 400MHz and memory 1:1 (stock voltages)?
    And, what's the difference between http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Xigma...uad-Core-Ready and http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Xigma...0mm-LED-cooler ?

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Ah I remember when those coolers cost less than £20...
    http://www.clunk.org.uk/reviews/xigm...er-review.html and http://www.clunk.org.uk/reviews/xigm...er-review.html

    Basically they perform the same (within testing error) so either the cheapest or the prettiest your choice.

    If your quick though you can get the Thermalright Ultima 90 on today only (yesterdays so you probably only have 30 mins at most to add to your basket) £21 get a fan to go with it and your away with a better cooler and it uses a backplate so no annoying push pins

    As to your overclocking question set the memory divider to 1:1 and then increase the FSB to say 300MHz and check for stability if thats fine up it a bit more (I would expect you to get to 3.16GHz on stock voltage though).

    Haha I bought that before I noticed this post! I wasn't really thinking of buying a Xigmatek, I was just wondering what was different about them. And thanks for the tips on the OC - I'll give it a try.

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Just want to double check: my motherboard has a 4 pin CPU power connector. Will that be enough to OC this CPU?

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Yep plenty

    My G33m-DS2R only as a 4pin as well and my E6550 is happily running along at 3.5GHz (damn low multiplier...) the E7300 should be lower power consumption as well so you will have no issues from a power delivery stand point.

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Also, on my BIOS, you have to set memory multiplier, not ratio (didn't check sorry) so what should that be at? For example, 2.4 runs memory at 800MHz (stock) when fsb is 333MHz. Thanks for your help btw!

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Set it at 2 that is the equivalent of 1:1 that will enable you to go as far as you can FSB wise with the CPU without worrying about the memory.

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Ok thanks again. Would it be OK to have it at 2.4 with fsb at 333 or should I stick with 2 (whole numbers)?

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    If you do not plan on taking the FSB any higher then leave it at 2.4 if you want to go higher then you will need to drop it down to maintain stability.

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Thanks once again. Just a few more questions, will this shorten the life of my CPU (noticeably)? And I'll need to set PCI-E to 100MHz and disable performance enhance, right? Should I leave voltage to auto or set it to manual (1.18750v) to make sure it doesn't overvolt?

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Lifesapn will be shortened by how much who can say but its still going to last 5 years at least.

    Voltage wise set it yourself once your happy at an overclock, the auto setting will be giving it more than it requires.

    As for the PCIe no idea if you need to disable performance enhance etc mine is just left as is which is 100MHz.

    Re: E7200 Cooler

    Performance enhance is a feature on gigabyte boards which is supposed to make your PC run faster. Don't think it makes much of a difference though so I'll disable it (it flashes to disable it anyway). I'll set PCI-E to 100MHz just incase because you can't see what it is when it's on auto.

    Don't need to run it fanless. Bought an Ultima 90 which is great. Got it on today only from scan.
