I've been trying to overclock my cpu for 2 hours now and the most I've been able to get it to is 2.5 stable.
I'm using an msi p6n 650i sli board (non platinum version) and a core 2 duo e4300.
the settings I used to get it up to 2.5 were:
533 core clock
2.2 volt ram
+ .1v cpu
fsb vit 12%
havnt touched the RAM timings. I'm using this ram btw: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820220144
Stock cooling and 600 watt xion psu.
The thing is that my mobo has "holes" in the fsb. The one I know for certain is the hole between 1100 and 1200 fsb. So basically I can't set the fsb to anything between that. So can someone help me out?
its so hard to tell what could be holding you up..i need to know your system specs...goto USER CP and add your specs to EDIT SYSTEM...if you read threw the first post and nothing worked then i have a bunch of questions...i haven't delt with that mobo yet, so i am limited as to how i can help...
typical settings are as follows
vfsb (stock to +.3v)
RAM multi set to 2.00 not auto
PCIe frequency set to 100Mhz
shut off any "protections" your motherboard bios may have....
Newegg is down right now so i can't see what ram you have...but could you tell me if its DDR2-800 or DDR2-667?
as far as holes or "walls" go, this cpu find them..lol...one thing you may try is this..it has worked for a few others..
ram 1:1 or 2.00
try that and if you don't post then try to raise your vcore slightly and boot..if you do not post or do not boot, then repeat till you do..seems that with the 8x multi your cpu won't need nearly as much vcore...
@MADMAX22 i was going to ask you what mobo you used with the 0711 bios...at least i was close to right with what bios was used..lol..i'll update that..I thought you needed 1.8vcore, that must have been someone else then..i'll update that as well...thanks..
