Asus P5N-D w/ E6300 to 3.2Gigz?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm new here and I was reading up on the basics of OC'ing.

I have my E6300 bumped up to 2.6 gigz basically right now after an hour of failed attempts. I was shooting for 3.0 atleast but every move I made seemed like it was getting worse, so I was wondering if you guys can give me some pointers.

System:
Asus P5N-D
Intel Conroe E6300
8GB XMS2 DDR2 800
ZALMAN CNPS 9900A

So I have my FSB bumped up to 1475 and it's running decent right now at 36 degrees, at load it goes up to about 52-55. The last FSB bump I tried to give it was 1525 and it hung at the "Welcome" greeting on Windows 7.

I'm assuming I can get it stable at 1525 by bumping up the vcore? If so how much would you recommend? Last time I tried touching the vcore it didn't go so well, so some professional input would help a lot.

I'm also at the moment leaving my ram clock unlinked to my CPU fsb, cause my mobo has that option of linking it but I left that alone.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I would add vcore in the smallest amount possible, test and see what happens. What do you mean by "it didn't go so well."?

My voltage setting was left on auto at first, then I had changed it to I believe 1.35? It had a hard time posting after leaving bios, then after a hard reset it finally posted and got to where Windows splash screen was supposed to be but instead I get this "Windows is loading files" with a progress bar that never got passed like 10%

That freaked me out so I had to hard reset a couple more times to get back into bios

I'd bump the Vcore up to 1.4 and see how it goes. The stock Vcore for that chip is 0.85 - 1.5, I would keep adding small amounts of vcore until its stable.

what is your dram : fsb ratio are you using at the moment?

I'll give the vcore bumps some try.

I'm not quite sure what my ratio is.. I'm only upping the FSB while leaving the DRAM at the stock clock.
