View Full Version : Good ol fashioned overclock thread
02-26-2010, 05:16 PM
Since ive gotten my watercooling loop to work properly, I thought I would start a thread to discuss overclocking and its been some time. Maybe breathe some life back into this section.
Vcore - 1.381
VTT - 1.36
DRAM - 1.68
PLL -dont remember, will update when im done playing with P95
PCH - 1.28
200 x 20 = 4ghz
DDR3 crucial 1333mhz @ 2ghz 9-9-9-24 1T
How long did you run it for and what were the settings?
I can run mine for 24 hours straight at blend setting with a temperature of 65C after 24 hours.

Small FFT test, mainly just stressing the processor. Ran it for 7 hours, and now im going to gradually bump my way up to 4.5ghz.

what are you running for a processor Hans?
I currently have a C2D E4300 running at 2.7ghz and a Pentium Dual Core E5300 I'm waiting for a newer motherboard befor overclocking. The E4300 won't go much higher because I can't lower the multiplier on my ram any further and it's already running @ 900mhz+
The Pentium Dual Core I can't press too much because I can't raise the ram past 800mhz on the current motherboard. Waiting for my new board to get back from RMA so I can play with that system.
It's not highend hardware, but it overclocks pretty good, which is what this topic is about right?

It sure is. I would try upping NB volts and relaxing ram timings and you should be able to push the ram up higher. You dont have the option for ddr200?
This is my cpu.

Fudd: All voltages have been massaged quite a bit, but they have no effect on the ram. It's been a problem with the board since new (too bad you can't RMA due to poor overclocking lol). I know it's the board because the same ram in my other system runs fine @ DDR2-900 @ 2.1V stock timings.
As far as the E4300 system it has very limited ram dividers and I haven't put too much time into it since it is my HTPC. It's based on the G41 chipset (HDMI out) and it plays all video I have thrown at it just fine. I just have it running @ 2.7 because it will do so without temps going to high with no additional cooling.

Just got a different motherboard and have been playing around with some overclocking. So far I have my Pentium E5300 up to 4.10Ghz from 2.6. Not too bad considering I paid $67 for the CPU. The ram that wouldn't do 850mhz on my old board is chugging along happily at 948mhz. I have been able to get it to boot up to about 1050mhz, but since right now I'm trying to find the max frequency I dropped the divider back on it.

Oh yeah, and after 30min of Orthos my temps are right around 70 degrees +/- 2 degrees.
