Need Help overclocking a E6700 on a Evga nforce 680i P33 - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
voltage is at 1.336v on CPU-Z during Prime and 1.352v when just idle

im using Core Temp 1.0RC5 min at around 5% load right now says TJ. Max 85c core0 @ 25c --- Core1@27c and my computer room is at around 70F. My Full size case has 1 180mm intake fan and two 120mm exhaust fans.

Revision is B2

you might want to check your performance ingame or benchies linked vs unlinked. I remember linked 1:1 fsb on my setup was a lot better than off ratios, I had a c2d e6300 I think, in a nforce 680i or something.

be careful with your MCP changes, that thing gets hot, if u have the one with the little extra fan make sure that thing is working. check your temps. look up some old threads if u can, there was something I had to do with the MCP voltage (or something related to MCP) to make it work right with my OC.

again, be careful with your overclocking, these boards were nothing like the new stuff, you can change a few settings and nuke your mobo or cpu instantly.

I wasn't all that careful with my 122-CK-NF68 but I had no problems. Or maybe I didn't and I didn't know it, but it worked until the day I decided to replace it with the EP45-UD3P.

well i have been playing guild wars 2, and the performance gain is only in the loading of different maps.. maybe a 5-8 fps gain maybe. hard to tell. Temps stay around the mid 30's while in game with a spike into the 40's 20 min or so but goes right back to the mid 30's after a few seconds.

From here i don't really know what to do. I've been reading that people easily get the E6700 to 3.5ghz but for my knowledge level on overclocking i'm not necessarily comfortable going that far. If i increase my fbs anymore than what it is now, prime gets an error and stops a worker. But it feels as if im pushing a lot of voltage right now. or is 1.38125v nothing to right home about? i know overclocking is more then just increasing fsb and voltage to get more power its tweaking a multitude of options to get the performance to be stable.

Really, my question is now. What options do i have to tweak to get more performance and what should i look for in instability to stop and backwards engineer my overclock.
post #15 of 25
I will look up some info for you later about your overclocking your setup.

the way to find instability is a bit tedious, you run stress tests and wait for your computer to crash, then back things off. always watching temps, always making small moves in voltage or clock rate. if you see anything sketchy on voltage or temps when your in windows just power down asap to prevent dmg.

you should see some info in these threads, search yourself for threads about your cpu. it looks like you might be able to get up to about 3.3 GHz, depending on your cooling setup. and 3 GHz is already pretty good from what im reading.

these aren't particularly great threads but I couldn't find anything better.

Really, my question is now. What options do i have to tweak to get more performance and what should i look for in instability to stop and backwards engineer my overclock.

 

When I overclocked the E2180 and the E8400 on my EVGA 680i SLI (122-CK-NF68), I kept it more simple than that. I disabled everything that the overclocking guide I gave you recommends to disable, and I only concerned myself with the CPU's core voltage, the FSB voltage and the MCP's voltage. For the 65nm Core2 Duo E6700 (as opposed to the 45nm Pentium E6700), your maximum safe core voltage is at about 1.50-1.55V, so your FSB voltage can probably go as high as 1.5V. I think 1.4 to 1.45V should be enough for the MCP.

 

From there, I think it's just a matter of adjusting the FSB clock. However, if Jollyburner's experience will be yours regarding the performance difference between Linked and Unlinked, then I would have to recommend using Linked. When using Linked, you have to watch the FSB:DRAM ratio because using Linked means that your memory will be overclocked along with the FSB.

 

Finally, use the Small FFTs test in Prime95 to do the following:

 

  1. To find out what your full-load voltage is
  2. To find out what your maximum temps are
  3. To find out if your system is stable at the current overclock (12 hours minimum)

Gunna run prime all night tonight. but those numbers are from when i got home 5:45 to now 7:35

If stable, then i guess this will be a good stepping stone to start tweaking my system till i get a max.

Can you tell me, is their anything in this text i should be worried about? i seen the CPU temp on the winboard at 58c? is that just the two cores combined temp? when im putting these temps into my Excel spreadsheet im recording the individual cores correct?

during that prime test both my cores were at a temp of 51c but its really really hot in my computer room. Son shut the fins on my AC duct... Usually their around 46-47c at 3.1ghz

I'm not familiar with this output from Hardware Monitor. Can you either post a screenshot or use Real Temp? If you don't know how to take and post a screenshot, then I can help with that. It's very easy.

 

When you're running Prime95, are you running the Small FFTs test as I recommended, or are you just doing the Blend test (the default test)?
