Began my adventure into OC land, and now I ask for guidance and help - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I'm aware of the max temp, I believe its listed as 63.7* to be exact .

I have a Tower 112 heat sink with a big fan, and vantec tornados for the case.

Another thing I will note... somehow, either myself installed some power wires wrong on my DVD-ROMs, or when my power supply popped a week ago both my DVD-ROMs crapped out on me. I found that out today, so atm I have no DVD/CD players. I think that was part of the problem with my booting issue as well, because I havent had a problem since then with anything booting at all.

I imagine you will have to slow the memory down to get the FSB any higher. Maybe try to get it to 3:4. How are your temps?

I have my 920 watercooled so it is chilly even at 100 percent load.

Edit....Just for reference.........my FSB is at 288 x 4.........memory is at 384 x 2 (3:4)........cpu voltage is 1.38 and memory is 2.2. Pcie 100........everything else on auto. My multiplier is 14.

If you could get your FSB to 288 with the memory at 3.4 like mine, you'd be running at 4.9 ghz. I bet it will do it with ease at around 1.4v
You really have to break this down into simplier terms if you can. I'm having trouble understanding... let me ask some questions maybe that will help.

Where do you see my FSB multiplied by? You say yours is 288 x 4, but I dont know where I can get that info, and if its in front of me I dont know how to read it correctly.

Why would you set your PCI-e to 100? What does that do exactly, I have those settings as well, and an option for the PCI to be set to 33.33mhz.

I also dont know how to set my multiplier to 14, mines at 17 at the moment.

I posted in the Intel Mobo forum about some help with these settings since I'm unsure how to doit, but no one has come through with info yet

The ram is set to 2.0v currently.

OK......your cpu FSB is at 235.5.....it is quad pumped so you take that times 4 to get your rate FSB speed of 942 it says on cpuz. One of those gets set in your bios as FSB. If you are using some automatic overclock in the bios it is doing it for you. I dont use those.

THe multiplier is locked in the cpu ......you can't change it. My cpu's is 14......yours is 17. That is how they are supposed to be. Now.....you take the CPU's fSb of 235.5 and multiply it time 17 to get the current rated speed of the cpu .....which is currently 4ghz.

The pci bus should be locked at 33.3 and the pcie should be locked at 100. You dont want them going up because they can damage things. Some people risk it, but it is a risk you shouldnt take.

Check with corsair on the ram voltage. You may be able to increase it a little to get the memory a little higher, but you probably are not going to get that memory much higher, so it might not be worth it. Try to lower the memory to 3;4 and that will give you more room to raise the FSB. Every bit you raise the FSB automatically raises the memory speed. So that is why i'm saying that.

IF you are still unclear tomorrow, i'll download your manual so i can help you through it some more.

Until you get a CDrom that you can boot memtest86+ with, DO NOT take the memory any higher. You will reach a point where it will destroy your windows volume if it is running too high.

Very important that you do this.

Wouldnt running the memory @ 3:4 cause it to run at a higher speed at the current fsb/cpu speed? Since the ratio is 3:5 atm.... or am I reading that wrong, with the memory being the 5 in the ratio?

Little update... I got my memory to run at 3:4 . I turned the memory speed down a bit.

Now, from what I've read is a 1:1 ratio is the best for speed... so should I turn my memory speed down more and crank up the cpu speed for maximum performance?

1:1 ratio for RAM is always suggested unless your RAM is a lot faster then what your CPU FSB will go or it is a lot slower then a divider can be used. Personally I always try to run in 1:1 but thats just me.

You should probably turn it down to 1:1 until you get your cdrom working again and can run memtest for the higher memory speeds. But you need to be careful and not use 1:1 when you are at stock fsb speed. That would put your memory at 400mhz and the system might not post that way. Some 667 memory wont run that slow, mine wont!. So when you are running stock FSB, put the memory on auto. When you are up at 266 fsb, it will be ok to be at 1:1. At 266 fsb with a 1:1 your memory will be running at 533 and that will be ok.

Watch those temps though!!

I been running prime 95 torture test. Temps never exceed 57* now. The other day it was around 60*, but it was first night of the proccessor... now that the cpu and AS5 have cured I think the temps are down a bit.

CD-ROM will be here mid next week, then I'm going to see how far I can go .
