still resets


i dont know why it always resets . Maybe theres some failsafe turned on in the BIOS or somethin.

I usually lower the multi on the CPU, overclock the FSB as far as needed, and then I'll turn up the vCore and multiplier. I cannot remember though if your PCI-e is locked to the FSB unless you change it to manual, but that could be your issue, is the PCI-e clock going up along with the FSB. Maybe if you lock the PCI-e at 100MHz, your troubles will go away. Would you mind taking a screen of some of the other BIOS screens, such as mem timing and chipset stuff? Could be something in there too possibly that's holding you back. Not sure what "Robust Graphics Booster" is, but I would disable that if possible for the time being, until this gets sorted for you. Also, can you grab a shot of the voltage monitoring screen from the BIOS?

here are the other screens:


-

Also the robust graphics booster:
allows to increase the frequency of the chipset graphic core. It only has AUTO, FAST , TURBO . It cant be disabled . As much as i have used it . It added a few fps when playing games when set on fast or turbo.

Alright, from what I can tell, try this -

Robust Graphics Booster - Auto
CPU Clock Ratio - 6 (or as low as it can go)
Fine CPU Clock Ratio - 0
CPU Host Clock Control - Enabled (allows manual setting of FSB, right?)
CPU Host Frequency (MHz) - 333
PCI Express Frequency (MHz) - 100
Performance Enhance - not sure what this one is to be honest, Standard or disable I would assume
System Memory Multiplier - try to keep the ram lower than the rated speed for now, set this whatever it needs to keep ram at around 667MHz

System Voltage Control - Manual
DDR2 OverVoltage Control - can't remember DDR2 very well, so can someone verify 2.1V was OK? I think that's right, but better check.
PCI-e OverVoltage Control - Normal
FSB OverVoltage Control - bump this up by 0.1V from Normal
(G) MCH OverVoltage Control - bump this up by 0.1-0.2V
CPU Voltage Control - Normal, or manually set to same as stock vCore, for now


No-Execute Memory Protect - Disable
CPU Enhanced Halt - disabled
CPU Thermal Monitor 2 - disabled
CPU EIST Function - disabled
Init Display First - PCI-e


Try that and see what happens...hopefully it boots, and we can go from there. If not, I'm out of suggestions I am afraid. If it boots, we'll continue by raising the CPU vCore and getting the CPU multiplier back up as high as it can go. FSB overclocking will still show gains, even with your CPU staying at or around stock clocks. Also, by the looks of it, you can't access memory timings at all then? Oh, and remind me to remind to, once everything else is sorted, to get that RAM back up to it's normal clock and maybe even overclock them a bit to around 1066MHz, I found most 800MHz modules would do 1066MHz without much of an issue, although without being able to set the memory timings manually, that may be a moot point. But no harm in trying, right?

nope it still reset. Dont know where the problem is.
post #16 of 21
Its your motherboard then, I can't think of anything else.

I had a e7500 before my present chip and it overclocked like a champ, so the e7400 should too. When I had a g31 chipset i couldn't get past 3.3-3.4ghz but when I switched to a p45, I took it till 4ghz.

I suggest getting an Gigabyte EP45-TUD3LR or UD3P to get a nice overclock.

well i would preffer to maybe go on full upgrade to a motherboard that supports the intel i series and ddr3 ram. Do you have any suggestions for gigabyte motherboard . I was thinking of getting something like a intel i5 cpu.
post #18 of 21
Yeah that makes more sense actually.

For gaming and other stuff get the i5 3570K. Nothing less otherwise you can't overclock at all.

Motherboard-

Asus P8Z77 V Pro
Asrock Extreme 4
Gigabyte Z77X UD3H /UD5H

All of the above boards are solid.

I just went through this about a week ago. don't know what sense it makes but my oc wouldn't take till I changed the on-chip SATA mode to enhanced from auto. worth a try. I got a giga board to wink.gif
