Asus E45M1-Deluxe Overclocked w/ Specs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have searched the web high and low for any info on overclocking the Asus E45M1-Deluxe with no luck. I figured I would post my achievements with this board and maybe someone would find it useful or want to share their own achievements.

System Specs:
MB: Asus E45M1-Deluxe
RAM: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR# 1600 **
SSD: Corsair Force GT 120GB
PSU: Pico 150XT w/ 200w adapter
Chassis: Wesena ITX5
Cooling: 1 silent case fan (plugged into CPU fan header)
OS: Windows Ultimate 64

**this MB only supports up to DDR3 1333 but I found that I got a more stable overclock with the higher spec RAM.

At stock this board has an AMD e450 dual core 1.65GHz processor.
I am running mine at just over 1.9GHz with an APU Frequency setting of 116 in BIOS.
My temps are stable between 30-50°C with just one case fan for cooling.
I was able to get it stable at higher settings but in order to bump the frequency from 116 to 118 I had to crank the voltage up to an ungodly high setting and I was waiting for the MOSFETs to start popping off the board like popcorn. The board would not post at a setting of 119. I also toyed with the RAM voltages and timings but was unable to get them stable so I just set them back to auto.

Below images are of my current stable settings. If anyone has any advise for me I would like to hear from them.

You won't find much info, if any, on overclocking E series APUs. They just aren't designed for that. These are built for super low power draw, and low cost.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't try though.

What I would do first is evaluate cooling. I seriously doubt that this thing has much in the way of stock cooling, and rightly so as it wouldn't normally need it. I would see if you can turn up fans, strap extra fans over the chipset and mosfets, and maybe even see if you can modify or replace the APU cooler.

It seems like you are already on the right track for tuning, and have obviously done some homework on overclocking in general. Keep posting a log here. You experience will help others who might want to try this.

Run some benchmarks too, and post some screen shots of stock versus overclocked so we can get a good idea of expected performance improvements, if any.
