I must be a noob to overclocking... - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Man were you on the money with that. Those are pretty close to the exact settings I had before I read your post. My ram is still at 4-4-4-12 (havent figure out how to change that yet. Ram is running at 340mhz. Cpu is at 3.06 and seems stable. Running orthos again to test. Had no problems before I made changes based on your advice. Only other difference is my CPU voltage is at 1.45 instead of 1.325. Now the only thing I need is a program that will tell me my CPU temp. I never got one with my board for some reason and I cant find a decent Free one off the net. Anyway...3 ghz gets me what I need. I dont wanna push my luck with it. Uh oh...Orthos just stopped after 4.5 minutes...sigh...

How long is recommended that I leave Orthos running to test my system stability?

Wow you better check the temps fast then. Download Coretemp:
http://www.thecoolest.zerobrains.com/CoreTemp/

Also 1.45v seems way too high for 3.0Ghz. Most C2D's can reach 3.0 - 3.2Ghz on stock vcore (1.325v). I bet your temps are pretty high now, I hope you are not using the stock cooler. What are the stock timings for your ram at 800mhz?

The stock timing for my ram is 4-4-4-12. Right now my CPU is running at 48*C on both cores and 85*C on the Tjunction without any load at all. Ima go reduce the voltage again right now.

I certainly hope so! My E6600 runs at much lower temps at 3.0ghz with stock voltages.

48c idle is much too high, I bet it goes over 60c on load. Try a load test with OCCT for 30 minutes and see if it's stable and what temp it reaches under load. Anyway, keep it below 60c on load.

Well I turned the voltage back down and it didnt seem to make much difference. I have an after market fan. The damned thing is huge in the case and has a 120mm fan on it. Ive got Orthos going right now and it seems to have stabilized at 59*C...but again Orthose has just stopped. My Mem Voltage is at 2.0 and the DRAM Frequency is DDR2-680...would those make a difference?

You might not have the heatsink seated properly. You'll get all kinds of crashes if you are constantly right at 60c.

And no, your DRAM frequency won't affect your CPU temp.

What kind of aftermarket fan/heatsink?

Ok found the fan info...its a Zalman CNPS7700. Im not sure how I could possible not install it right...the dang thing is practically anchored to the board. I know I used the right amount of thermal grease. One problem I do have with it though is the BIOS always pipes up saying that its not running when I turn on the PC. I have to tell the BIOS not to monitor it to make it stop doing that. But its running...full speed far as I can tell. Even turned the little switch all the way up to make it go as fast as it can. Maybe I have it plugged into the wrong slot on the motherboard or something? I also went and set all my settings back to exactly what you recommended earlier. And orthos stops after 5 minutes...temps run just above 60 on load and at 48 still without the load.
