New E6320 system OC results... - Page 4

Sounds like you may have hit a FSB wall.

I recommend you set the multi to 6 and just crank the FSB as much as you can in 5/10 increments.

When you hit an unstable or non-boot FSB, jump ahead of it by 10-15 mhz and see if that gets past it. Sometimes you can have as high as a 45-60 mhz hole in FSB stability on some chips, it's not entirely uncommon.

Once you find the max bootable FSB, try booting with the multi back at stock at the lowest bootable FSB above the hole. Like if you stopped having boot problems at 465, try booting at 7x465.

Other than that, you might not have had to return the P5B Plus or throw a bigger PSU in it. It could be just a bad chip. The 6320's lately have had bad luck with OC's. In comparison, some 6420's can hit 3.4-3.5 on air.

You haven't lapped your 6320 have you? Maybe consider returning it and picking up a 6300/6400 or a 6420.

Remember, the larger L2 cache means more heat under load, so it's very possible you won't hit the same speeds on a 6320 that a comparable 6300 can hit.

Good lucky buddy.

Thanks for the insight.
I'll try to drop my multiplier to 6x instead of x7 (the only two options) and see how high I can take the FSB....but, I can usually boot, just can't pass hours of OCCT and ORTHOS.
I'm finding my chip runs pretty dang cool IMO. I think I'm in the 40's loaded (not TAT, but ORTHOS/OCCT). I have to go over 1.5 vcore and 3.0GHz to see 50's, but I'm just not stable there.

I set those settings and dropped my vcore to 1.400 in BIOS (I also went ahead and DISABLED the TM function) and I'm not stable in OCCT for more than 1.5minutes...I'm running ORTHOS right now for small FFT...never mind, it died at 4 min 17sec...so, I guess I'm back to pumping my vcore back up?????
You gotta figure that going from 1.86 GHz to 3.0 GHz is still a massive overclock. Let us all remember the Prescott that could barely take a 300 MHz increase on most setups. I'd say that going from 1.86 to 3.0 is golden, so don't worry if it won't go past that point.

Increasing the vcore, as many people here may very well inform you, will increase stability while overclocking at the price of increased temps. Take it to 1.5 and see if that helps.

You could drop the multi to 6 and lower the voltage, which will lower the temps, but you'll likely only hit 2.7GHz before having to raise voltage again.

Yes, absolutely went manual and disabled all the advanced cpu stuff. You've given a couple recommendations at the very start of this thread, so I started with those! Anyway, water under the bridge. I'm working at getting 2.8 stable at the moment, and I'm optimistic that I'll at least get there.
