ready to OC - Page 4

post #31 of 36
lol okay. if it isn't booting, it's probably just because one of your volts is a little low. i can give you my numbers if you want, but i have a different mobo and a faster OC. but it will at least be a start. (if AI works, then you can probably just pat yourself on the back and call it a day )

vCore: i have mine at 1.3. nice and cool. if it works for me, it will work for you.

DRAM Voltage: whatever your memory manufacturer recommends. you aren't overclocking your memory, so just go stock on that. i recommend inputting it manually though because a lot of mobos don't recognize the memory correctly.

Chipset Core Voltage: you only have 2 choices. 1.4 or 1.5. try the higher one. if it works, you can try the lower volt later.

CPU Termination Voltage: again, only 2 choices. try the higher one first. lower it later if you can.

man....my problem is i want 2.66 so what im asking is how to get there. AI tuning works for 10% OC which is ~2.33 Ghz. it doesnt work for anything above there.

My MB is supposed to be crap for OCing but it cant get to 2.66. HOW DO I GET TO 2.66. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM. is what im basically asking man

what are the consequences for upping volts..i dont just want to up random ones...what is each effectively doing....i thought i should only up vcome if i wanted.....

1.3 vCore is very low compared to what a lot of other guys on this forum have. i know it's safe. i have my E6400 @ 3.2GHz and i get 32C idle/38C full load.

DRAM voltage is important here. like i said, a lot of mobos read memory the wrong way. i don't know why. i do know that i always set my memory manually, and i just go off the manufacturer's recommendations.

Chipset Core Voltage regulates the chipset on the motherboard. they wouldn't give you an option to go too high on their own motherboard. set it to 1.5. set the CPU to 1.35. this should work. you won't hurt anything.

wont this lessen the life of my MB? w/e that means....do ppl usually have a mobo fail due to a voltage change? i dont usually hear of any....

Is my inability to get to 2.66Ghz DEFINATELY due to the need to up the volts of something? could there be any other thing in the way other than that? If I just used AI to do a 10% OC and it was stable would that even be worth staying with that over 2.13?

so after looking around for information about the p5nsli and overclocking...im just gonna go ahead and stay with a 10% using AI tuning. ill test for stability with orthos in the morning. Is there anything else i should do? change my mem timings or anything? or am i good if everything is stable?

i suppose you can tighten your timings. going with the AI 10% overclock, you're not getting the most out of your memory though. the volts that i listed above are all well within norms. believe me, i wouldn't do it if i thought i was going to shorten the lifespan of my rig. i spent way too much money on it.

but don't do anything you aren't comfortable with. if you stick around and see how many people go a lot higher than you, maybe you'll change your mind at some point and decide to at least match the speed of your memory. if you don't... you still have a nice computer
