Can't hit 400MHz fsb on G31

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm new in this site.

I've seen alot of people who've overclocked their duos to 400x[multi] on Gigabyte G31 boards. Well, I have a Gigabyte G31M-ES2C rev. 1.1, Bios updated to F8. I tried everything possible, but could never hit the 400mhz fsb. I could hit it with the pcie frequency set to auto, but I guess that sets the frequency at a higher value. So what do I do?

My specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz (266x10)
Gigabyte G31M-ES2C rev. 1.1 F8
Sapphire HD 5750 1GB GDDR5
Transcend Value/Jetram 2x2GB 800MHz 5-5-5-18 (stock)

Now can anyone be kind enough to help this poor fellow out?

One idea would be to try with the PCIe frequency between 104 - 112 MHz, maybe it would stabilise. Otherwise if it works with the PCIe on Auto, use a soft to see what is the PCIe clock (Aida64 for example)

I've heard that raising the pcie frequency affects the sata hdd. is that true? and is 104-112 a safe range?

might be fsb hole.... try a higher frequency... with lower multi obviously

And how do I check the pcie clock using AIDA64?
post #6 of 16
are you overclocking through aida64?

should really head over towards the bios..

well the pcie is probably still around 100-102..

you shouldn't have to mess with it for 400mhz fsb

whats the chip voltage at?

I tried with pcie clock set to 102, 105, 110, and 115, but still it doesn't boot.
400x7 @ 1.2v (doesnt boot)
