Intel core duo E4500 overlocking

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I'm new to overlocking and hopefully by the end of the day there won't be any smoke coming out of my PC. I have read few guides to overlocking and tried my best to do so.

My specs:
Intel Core Duo E4500 2.2GHZ core vol.
Asus P5N-MX motherboard
4096MB DDR2 Crosair


I set FSB Memory mode to linked
FSB Memory ratio to 1:1
FSB (QDR) to 1100 from 800.
I didn't change any vol.

My RealTemp Shows
CPU temp 45C on idle, goes up to 70C while stressing. 3h of prime 95
Distance to TJ Max 45 on idle, 23 while stressing. 3h of prime 95

On BIOS and on load it shows 3025MHZ.
Is it all good? Or am I doing something harmfull?
Look forward to hear your advices.

Thanks!

I had the same cpu a while ago,e4500 cpu won't go over 3.0 Ghz(depends what revision) that's for sure and the cpu is getting hot as hell when overclocked,i suggest you set it at 3.0 Ghz to make sure it's stable and if it happens to be unstable give the cpu some voltage like 1.4.58 something like that.
What cpu cooling do you have?

E4*00 Series can go well over 3.0Ghz

But they just need some cooling, and a high voltage, but running up to 1.42 is not that harmful for 65nm chips.
As for OP, Try not to get the cpu temp over ~65c when loaded, so you might lower your clocks a little, or get a better cooler!
i run 3.2 on my old E4300 with an aftermarket cooler (Hyper TX3), works great.

Standard cooling and extra fans on the sides of my case. I just run tests and temp gone up to 71C , I would increase the vol a bit and see if its more stable. if neccessery I'll decrease the FSB.
What about memory should it's speed?
Thanks

You might lower the fsb a bit yeah, I'd say 71c is a tad too hot.
It should run on 2.8-3.0 on 1.32-1.35v, depending on how your chip is degrading and what batch it is.

If the memory is PC6400, you should keep it around 800, will probably be fine up to 830 or so with the voltage upped one notch, But try to keep it under or at 800Mhz for now, than when ur CPU is stable you can OC the ram a bit.

As for the rams you should try 1200 Mhz with +0.2 voltage,make sure your rams are running at 1.8 v stock,always overclock your cpu first and keep the rams as low as you can so you can test if the cpu is stable after that,overclock rams and test them with memtest.
You should buy a cooler for your cpu that stock cooling won't do any good.
That is why im suggesting lowering the cpu at 3.0 Ghz and raise the voltage a little bit( i don't think it's necessary because you said your cpu is stable within 3 hours of prime without any voltage).
Make sure you know what you are doing when playing with voltage.
The cpu voltage can go up to 1.55(maximum recommended voltage) more than that is not recommended.
The rams voltage can go up to +0.4(maximum recommended voltage) from 1.8 v to 2.2 v.
Good luck.

For me didin't worked over 3.0 Ghz .
Maybe it was my mobo,my cooling.
That is why I suggest he keeps his cpu at 3.0 ghz becuase of his cooling.

I ve changed it to unlinked
FSB 1000MHZ
Memory 800MHZ but it's getting hot quite quickly...
I will changed it back to linked (1000 fsb-500mem ratio 1:1)
How about memory timings, I have read I could set them to 5-5-5-15-2T

Yes those are nice timmings or you can try 5-5-5-18-2T.
You are good if you keep your rams at 1000 and the cpu at 3.0 Ghz.

Increased the vol on the mem from 1.8 to 1.95 and FSB gives now 2.75 GHZ running smooth.
Do I need to unlink the FSB MEMory mode as the only way to set it up to 800?
Right now is around 500mhz which is pretty low.
Many thanks!
