problems oc'ing an e6400 + first build pictures! :D

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
ok bros, here are my specs

gigabyte DS3
core2duo e6400
zalman CNPS9500 cpu cooling
1gb patriot ddr2 800 4-4-4-12
evga 7900gs KO
ocz gamexstream 600w
WD 250gb 7200rpm 16mb cache
samsung writemaster
lian li cooled by 5 8cm fans



anyways, i'm ready to explore the murky depths of oc'ing...

so here's what's going on...

i have ce1, virtualization, and eist disabled.

just by doing those things, i'm able to oc to 2.4ghz via the fsb, upping it to 300. anymore than that and my computer won't boot into windows. what else do i need to do in the bios? i know i'm missing something...

here's a link to my bios
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...e=GA-965P-DS3P

i'm pretty sure i've left too many things on auto...help me out here...

btw, the zalman ROCKS!! with tat my idle temps are at 27C idle and 39 full load with orthos...

also, i've gotta say, the only computer i've ever had is a dell laptop 5150 w/P4 3.06, 1.26gb ram, fx go5200 64mb...so i know next to nothing about all this crazy stuff! i've been reading as much as i possibly can online on several different forums. i'm still having some problems though...all help will really be appreciated!

also, just for some eye candy...here is my brand new system, my first build ever!!!

very nice, i have the same board, try these settings for a quick OC
First in bios hold control and press F1
Then go to the overclocking section.
Set the bus speed to 400, set the ram to 2.0
pci-e to 100
enable voltage at the bottom and set the vcore to 1.35 (around there, it is fairly low but its all that mine needs)
Boot up at 3.2 ghz
Also under the pc health tab make sure you disable that crap at the bottom that limits your cpu fan speed
EDIT: for the ram timings, set manually 4 4 4 12 to make sure that it is running at the best timings
Tell me how it goes, you can AIM me also if you need to.

I just looked at your temps, not too bad. I get 24 idle 43 max - speedfan but mine is lapped which helped a lot
