New System - C2D 6420 Week: L707A

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I finally got my new system together: (read my sig for details)
CPU: Intel C2D E6420 Week - L707A

Here are my results in the overclocking realm:

@ 2.8Ghz

FSB/Mem Config (Unlinked):
***I suspect my ram is overclocking like crap and waiting for an RMA from OCZ...thats why I left it unlinked for now***
FSB --> 1500Mhz (350 x 8)
Mem --> 800Mhz (5-5-5-10 2T)

Voltages: IN THE BIOS
Vcore --> 1.38v
Mem --> 2.1v
1.2V HT --> Auto
NB Core --> Auto
SB core --> Auto
CPU VTT --> Auto

Wasnt sure what to put for some of the voltages, so left them on auto for now...

I am new to this Bios layout, so not sure if I am missing something...if I left it out, its probably on auto/default.

I followed the P5N32-E SLI Overclocking Instructions and disabled a few things that were suggested (except Legacy USB).

Check the screenshot for details on temps/droop/stress testing!

NOTE: I actually ran the tests for over 2 hours, but then restarted all the apps for the screenshot

Please suggest some numbers for the other voltages I got on auto cause i know Asus mobo's like to play with voltages on auto settings

Nice.. I was wondering how they performed against the E6400 chip.

The vcore seems a little high, but I guess that's with all the new C2D's.

I havent actually had a chance to test it much at a lower vcore yet. Problem is this crappy set of OCZ ram...luckily OCZ is great at RMA cause I had this ram for well over a year and they are sending me a new kit without any issues.

Once I get the kit, ill be able to test things better.

In the meantime though: Anyone got any suggestions for voltage of the things that are set to auto for me right now?

Vcore --> 1.38v
Mem --> 2.1v
1.2V HT --> Auto 1.3v
NB Core --> Auto 1.4v
SB core --> Auto 1.5v
CPU VTT --> Auto 1.55v

Those are the voltages I was running all the way to 1950 fsb. I run them now as well and everything is good to go.

How is a lower vcore affected by crappy ram?

Cyant: Its not affected by it at all.

I just get discouraged overclocking and then running stability tests, when I know that more than have the time, I get errors due to the ram. I just upped the voltage a few tads and scalled the cpu down to 2.8Ghz for now to run until Monday/tuesday when new ram arrives.
