help with this e6600!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
alright, I can run all day and all night with 1.3 volts, 350 mhz fsb, 350 mhz ram (ddr 700), and 9 divider...

however, if I boost it up at all, complete instability...no matter what vcore and vdimm.

even if I lower the multi to 8, I still cannot even run 400 fsb without instability..I really want to hit the 400 fsb so my ram will be running at its stick ddr2800!

Have you Tried upping the Chipset Voltage 1 Increment too see if that helps..It shouldnt at this stage However give it a go.

I find this illogical. You should not have to increase any voltage, apart from CPU Voltage (Vcore), to ascertain a clock frequency of 3200MHz (8x400MHz).

1. Disable HyperPath 3
2. Disable SpeedSpectrum
3. Force PCI Clock at 33.3MHz
4. Force PCI-E Clock at 100.0MHz-110.0MHz
5. Disable EIST (Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology)
6. Disable C1E (Test with this setting, if this is not the problem keep online).
7. Use different Memory Dividers, as test basis

If none of the above procedures work I suggest you do try to increase additional voltages to maintain stability.

1. Increase Memory Controller Hub Voltage (MCH)
2. Increase Input/Output Controller Hub Voltage (ICH)
3. Increase FSB Termination Voltage (VFSB)
4. Increase Memory Voltage (Vdimm, only do so if Memory is causing issues)
5. Drastically Increase CPU Voltage (Vcore, this is not recommended, but it will ascertain if the CPU is causing mass issues)

Please report back on your findings, with these settings.

Ok..testing with above settings..I am actually running orthos dual prime right now..everything was set according to your first battery of settings, including disabling c1e (I do not know where the setting for hyperpath 3 is), and I also DECREASED vcore voltage to see what was what...I am 10 minutes into dual primes with 400 fsb / 8 multi, vcore 1.275...load temps around 38C....so hopefully that one setting (c1e) made all the difference. Thanks!

Also, where is the setting for hyperpath 3?

I believe HyperPath 3 should be located within the Chipset Options section within your system BIOS.

still not stable..starting to adjust north bridge and fsb termination..stilll cannot find hypertransport...is that the same as the static option?

HyperPath 3 is only accessible with certain BIOS revisions (according to ASUS documentation). Therefore as you do not have this option (apparently), this will not be causing a problem.

If you are increasing FSB Termination Voltage and Memory Controller Hub Voltage I suggest you do so with care, and monitor the thermal status very closely to prevent any damage to your hardware components.

Be aware that increasing the FSB Termination Voltage will destabilise the tracers due to the increase in noise, and this may in turn destabilise the entire FSB array. I therefore suggest that you only increase this value in moderation.

well, I went up to 1.375 vcore and still no stability..so I lowered the multi to 7 and raised the fsb to 450, and it is running fine at lower vcore? does that make sense?

Running the processor at a lower voltage with a lower multiplier is logical.

When the multiplier is active small additional components are required to activate to multiply the CPU Clock by the multiplier. Additional voltage is required for these chips, to maintain processor stability.

You should be happy, a lower multiplier, and a greater bus speed, is the best route to take for a Core 2 Duo processor.
