Overclocking my e5800!!! - Page 4

post #31 of 59
Here are some of my lessons learned. Frying a system by overclocking is not unheard of. Read more. Then, read some more even if it is not about the chip/system being overclocked. Create a log and note ALL of the changes made. When finished overclocking the first time, start over again using newest knowledge. Rinse and repeat.

First, how hot is too hot for your CPU? It looks like Intel recommends 74°C Tcase and 1.3625 VID/Vcore. But this isn't so simple. Reading further. Getting too hot or too much voltage can FRY YOUR COMPUTER. Use the temperature monitoring program you have, Core Temp. Run the stress test, Orthos, on stock motherboard settings and see how high the temp gets. Practice stopping the software so if the CPU gets too hot you can stop it immediately.

Decide how you want to stress your system. Some run stress tests for minutes, some run them 24 hours. Keep an eagle eye on the temperature for at least the first 10 minutes. Exceed the temperature at your own peril.

Now you have a baseline to judge against. Start OC'ing! My personal method is to change as many defaults as I can to manual. I then slowly step settings up until the computer will not boot into windows and run the stress test below temperature for 10 minutes. Most people step FSB until failure. Then step Vcore until boot. Rinse and repeat until maxed by temperature or voltage. As I read and learned more I adjusted other settings. Then I run the stress test for 8 hours. Then I run my programs.

An overclock can be stable with stress tests, and crash with one program, but not others. I have had my 2.33Ghz CPU up to 3.5Ghz. But it is only stable for most of my programs at 3.2Ghz, and 3.1Ghz for all.

Good Luck!

Okey.. I ran orthos on my stock settings for 10 minutes an the highest temp that my CPU goes is 75C..
How is that??? And i don't have a cooler system just the stock cpu.. so how much should I increase the highest???

on stock cooling and based on your temps. maybe 3.6GHz. and thats 333 x 11

@croy... I tried your steps as suugested on page 3, but my pc did not boot..
I had to return to stock setting... But I did overclock it to 3.5ghz (220 x16) and changed vcore to auto..
But the main problem was that my temps were above the sky.. they has risen above 75C in less than 1 min and now I am running stock... Is that bad?? What do I do now??

maybe your mobo doesn't like changing the multiplier/ratio.

can't I do atleast 3.5ghz fully stable at stock??? And haw much will it cost for a cheap an good cooler???
post #37 of 59
yes you can but i would still buy a cpu cooler first for safety.

if you want a cheap cpu cooler with good performance look for a Contac 29 or Hyper 212+. they perform the same.

I have the ASUS P5G41T-M LX.. plz help me If U can...But u hace a 125nm cooler but I don't have any cooler other than the stock one... also u have a better mobo... Do U think I can achieve 4.0???
And one more thing... How do I know that which time to stop and which is the full stable one?? I have the orthos prime.. How long do I need to run the test?? How do I know the the OC which I have done Is fully stable??

I was at 4.00 stable with the stock cooler before I got this one. And my mobo is the bottom end gigabyte board with no vrm cooling whatsoever, so as long as you don't go over about 4.10 with about 1.45v ish you should be more or less ok. Obviously stress testing is needed.

Don't leave you're Vcore on auto just manually set it to 1.35 to start with if that doesnt work just pump it up a little. But be sure not to go above 1.4-1.42 Vcore.
Also keep in mind to set you're ram manually as close as you can to it's stock speed.
If it does work (stable) at 1.35 Vcore then try to lower Vcore that should keep your temps down a little.
