e5200 help needed to Overclock to 3.4 ghz plzzzzz

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Sorry if this is in the wrong area of the forum?
I am new to overclocking.I know a fair bit but i cant figure out how to over clock my e5200 to 3.4 ghz stable.I have overclocked it to 2.9 then to 3.08 stable but 3.14 unstable.Ive tryed 272 at 12.5 and 266 at 12.5 but so far they failed.Do i need to change ram timing or is there a setting im missing?Vcore is locked as well.

These are the stats for my computer

p5kpl-cm Mobo
e5200 cpu
I have two 1024,800 mhz ram 4-4-4-12
650 W psu

This is part of the advanced settings in bios

AI Overclocking [manual] / auto
CPU frequency [245] max 333 i think
DRAM Frequency [667] auto 667 / 800

1.8V Dual Over Voltage [1.80]
Vti_CPU Over Voltage [Auto]
1.25V Over Voltage [1.25]
1.5V Over Voltage [Auto]

My brother,about a year ago Had it overclocked to 3.4 but i cannot figure out how he did it,all i have is some scrambled numbers on paper.
This is what he wrote

dual over voltage = manual set mem vott
1.25 over voltage = NB
1.5 over voltage = PCIe voltage

3.6 ghz
ram @ 960? NO!
1.325v ideal
1.4 v MAX
250/260
AI tweaker in bios?
RAM 800 mhz 6x233
1.45 v vcore
1.4v NB
2.1v DRAM
FSB 280
Vcore 1.3v

Any help would be very very great full

Which motherboard did he have when he overclocked it to 3.4 GHz?

The same one i have now.p5kpl-cm.I now have it over clocked to 3.14 ghz stable (thank god)
this is how

AI Overclocking [manual]
CPU frequency [250]
DRAM Frequency [667]

1.8V Dual Over Voltage [2.0]
Vti_CPU Over Voltage [1.3]
1.25V Over Voltage [1.4]
1.5V Over Voltage [Auto]

and multi on auto.

I think i just need the exact calculas to over clock to 3.4 because it says next to the multi it has to be exact or it will malfunction or something.And maybe i need to change my ram timing to get it up that far?
Lol such a mish on this mobo though,although i have heard of people overclocking e5200 upto 4.2 unstable and 3.9 stable...

also if someone is willing to teach me how to calculate that would be sick ! biggrin.gif

Yeah, well this motherboard has two strikes against it:

 

  1. It has the G31 chipset
  2. It's a Micro ATX board

 

Anyone who got it up to 3.9 or 4.2 GHz stable was more than likely using a good P45 Standard ATX motherboard.

 

Anyway, I think you need to use 283 because I think the E5200's multiplier is 12.5. I'm not sure though.

!!! it is a 12.5 multi at tops but you can set it in 5's and i sorta remember 283,i think my brother used it either that or i have seen it somewhere on a site and tryed it already but it failed LOL haha,umm i was reading somewhere that with some different brands like amd or intel it is better to have a lower ratio with intel and higher with amd? like 1:1 or 2:1 or something with intel and 5:4 with amd? im not sure i didnt really understand it .Is 283 to get to 3,4ghz?Also should i set the multi at 12.5 or leave it on auto?Plus are my voltage settings ok as is? and should i leave the DRAM freq at 667 or put it to 800?

Holy crap. I did my math wrong. Try 272.

 

You see, if the multiplier is at 12.5, then 283 x 12.5 is 3.5375 GHz, but 272 x 12.5 is exactly 3400 MHz which is exactly 3.4 GHz.

 

Leaving the multiplier set to Auto is probably setting it to 12.5.

 

I don't know about AMD, but I do remember that a 1:1 ratio is supposed to be optimal.

 

Anyway, I think you should set the DRAM frequency to 800 because that's what it's rated for.

Ok i have tryed 272x12.5 in the past but it has failed and im not sure why.I still dont understand the ratio thing though lolol.I will leave the voltages at what they are now and change the DRAM freq etc and try it again.Will get back and edit this post with the results.Thanks heaps for you help so far btw,i now know how to get a certain ghz biggrin.gif haha sweet.Brb

I do have two questions though:

 

  1. What's the make and model of your PSU?
  2. What are you using for CPU cooling?

Hey mate i tryed 272x12.5 with DRAM 800 was a no good,so i tryed changing the 12.5 to auto and it still failed.
Then i tryed changing the DRAM to 667 and tryed the multi again on 12.5 and also on auto but it still didnt work.Only thing that happens when it fails is the computer keeps running and the screen turns off or the computer restarts and then the screen turns off once it sounds like its loading.
I didnt change the voltages or anything else from the above post apart from multi,DRAM,cpu freq.

I have a corsair 650 psu and iceq 6850 gpu,for cooling i have a evo212 coolermaster heatsink with 1 fan on it and another very strong fan 3 inchs away on the back of the computer blowing out in the same direction as the heatsink fan is blowing.
I monitored the heat while playing counterstrike source @3.14 ghz @250-660 fps using coretemp and it didnt hit over 50 and also felt the side of the heatsink (carefully) near the cpu and it was cold.

Damn. I was hoping to blame either the PSU or the CPU's cooling. :)

 

At this point, I'm not sure what else to do. I'd be asking him for help because he was successful overclocking it. Although, I don't know how he managed to overclock it that far with this motherboard. It doesn't make sense to me. Did he have better memory?
