    ive gone from 2.0Ghz to 2.4Ghz but i want more..

    Last night i thought id give overclocking a go becuase i was reading clunks overclocking guide, so i think ive doen everything correctly i change the RAM and FSB ratio to 1:1 and then i change the FSB from 200 to 220 first off, opened TAT plaay crysis for an hour and then temps where around 38/39c, so i change it again to 220 to 240 making it 2.4Ghz and played crysis again for another hour and they where around 41/43c

    i want to go high to make a difference in the speed of the system becuase im sure going from 2.00ghz to 2.40ghz has not made much difference, i just have read about voltages and things like that and im not to sure where to go from here, beucase im sure you have read that if you do a big enough overclock you have to change the voltage and how much would i need to OC to make a differnece?


    oh and i have just noticed something i was going to post TAT screenies and CPU-z screens but on cpu-z the multiplyer is changing between x6 and x10 i have no idea why its doing this..




    cheers

    Re: ive gone from 2.0Ghz to 2.4Ghz but i want more..

    You need to disable C1E/EIST and Intel SpeedStep to stop the multiplier and voltages changing.

    I would have thought that was already in clunks guide though? Which makes me think you have skimmed it instead of reading it thoroughly.......

    Install RMClock and disable C1E,C2E,C3E and C4E in the Advanced CPU settings tab. Also make sure that your overclock is stable for at least 25 iterations of IntelBurnTest.

    Also makes sure that you are not overclocking your RAM and that the PCI-E bus is not being overclocked too.

    What motherboard are you using? C1/EIST didn't affect stability for me. I always leave it on.

    TAT is a piece of tat () use CoreTemp/RealTemp and Prime95 or some other utility. Lookup your max voltage on the Intel Processor Spec page and then find out what speed you want to try running at (something achieveable) and then work your way up there by increasing your FSB. If the system fails to boot, increase the VCore (as long as it doesn't pass your max stated CPU voltage) and keep going until you reach the set speed. If your temps under prime are too high then back down the FSB, if the VCore is at the max and you can't get it stable back down the FSB.

    I'm sure Clunks guide explains this and as for the OC making a difference. Run a benchmark at stock or a myriad of benchmarks that apply to what you'd like boosted and log your results in an spreadsheet or something and then see how much in terms of % you've overclocked and what % your results have gone up by etc and then you can locate at what OC speed gives the best boost.

    I assume this it it

    VID Voltage Range: 1.162V-1.312V

    Yeah that's it. I ran my E2180 at 3.33GHz at 1.35v so maybe make 1.3 your max and see how far you can clock with it

    Re: ive gone from 2.0Ghz to 2.4Ghz but i want more..

    and each time i run intelburntest yes? just to make sure its all ok, but i still dont know how to sort the problem of the multiplyer changing from x6 to x10 and back again. i assume its a problem anyway

    Well yeah IBT or Prime95. I don't use IBT because it passed my CPU when Prime95 and all the others failed it. After using the others to tweak the VCore it was stable on all of them.

    As for SpeedStep it really isn't a problem unless it's causing you stability problems. I've always overclocked with it on and had no problems. It's there to lower the clock speed of your CPU to save energy when you aren't doing something taxing.

    Oh right, thats ok then!

    just a little update IntelBurnTest has been running for about 10/15 minutes and these are the temps.



    and IntelBurnTest has just finish and i did 25 iterations as CAT recmmended and it passed it so i assume i can go up now, what do you rekon, 240 to 260? smaller, bigger?

    ok i will do the IntelBurnTest again but using the program you advised me to moniter the temp

    Re: ive gone from 2.0Ghz to 2.4Ghz but i want more..

    all seems good by the looks of things, they are hovering around this mark the max has been

    Core1 at 51
    Core2 at 48

    and sometimes it moves down to 49/47 so i assume all is good just finishing off another intelburntest at full stress levels just to make sure all is ok. moogle what do you recommend i go up again by? 260?
