How to get 3.0 Ghz with intel E2200 on Asus P5G41C-M LX

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i have a low pc like this :
Asus P5G41C-M LX
Intel E2200
DDR3 Patriot 2Gb PSD22G8002H
PSU VenomRX 400W

A couple days ago i tried to OC it, the best i can get was @2.6 Ghz
(but in CPU-Z it was read 1.4 Ghz, i was wondering why..)
i set it like this
(cpu freq set to 236, DRAM freq auto, Memory voltage 1.53, VTT voltage 1.25, ratio CMOS 11, ram timing auto)

i was curious if my pc was enable get stable @3.0 Ghz (read on CPU-Z)

turn off C1E, speedstep etc... any energy saving features basically, thats why you are getting a different reading in cpu-z.
also take the ram speed off auto, manually set it to its default speed, this way it doesn't interfere with the cpu overclock, which imo is happening.
do not touch the ram timings etc.. just the speed, eg. 1600mhz.

the g41 boards aren't great for overclocking, but you should get to around 3.0ghz.
just take your time.
keep raising the fsb until windows wont boot, then raise the vcore a couple of levels.
then run 5 passes of intel burn test, to see if its stable.
if so, keep raising fsb

is vcore = VTT voltage?

You can keep raising the fsb until windows won't boot but it doesn't mean it's stable.A good oc is a stable one.

unfortunately that motherboard doesn't have voltage control for the cpu vcore.
