stability problems

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i have been overclocking my e6320 and set my vcore at 1.31V and have been stepping up the FSB. I should be able to get to at least 2.5Ghz core clock with that. i was stepping the FSB up 10Mhz each time and running some stress tests (orthos and superpi like the guide said). I got to 310 fsb and then when i went to 320 i couldn't boot windows and BIOS was telling me overclocking failed. But that was only a 2.18Ghz core clock! i tried pushing it up 25Mhz to get into the next NB strap but again it would work. I want to keep the vcore around the same cause i am getting 56 degree load temps and i want to keep my temps below that (+ looking into new heatsink but not for a while) and i am not too fussed at getting much over 2.5Ghz for the time being. So i know the next thing to do is to step up the SB voltage but in the BIOS it is set to Auto and i have no way of telling what the voltage is at the moment.

My question is what should i set my SB voltage so i can surpass 320 FSB or if you can't answer that, please give me some guidance as to how (what program if need be) to find out my current SB voltage. Also, should i set my NB voltage and if so how can i find that out.

if you bothered reading the whole post, thanks for your effort

I doubt your SB is going to have much effect here. You might wanna bump your NB though to enable your board to operate on those FSB speeds. I'm 100% sure your 6320 can hit those speeds. Just go to the second lowest NB voltage and see if that helps and then take it up one at a time until you post possibly.

I'm not sure familiar with this P5B-E so that's the best guess I can throw.

i changed my NB vcore to 1.4 (second lowest), as suggested but still when i pushed the FSB up to 320 it failed to boot properly. My memory is also set to stock and the memory voltage is set on 1.9V. Is that any problem, could that be stopping me from overclocking past 310 FSB? Also i was wondering whether spread spectrum could be stopping me?
