Little more help with e6700.!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well thanks so far to the people that have helped and this forum itself, i got my current system running well at 3.25g and very stable, so far runs every game i thrown at it, and including lost planet with all up full using dx10 but with low fps.

I not touched my gfx card yet, as i want to get my cpu sorted first.

I got her running at 3.25 so far, but now a little on a stumble on memory setting up, here is my current details.



Could you advice me what i can do, i seen alot more from the e6700 chips but i want to be stable and done right.

Cheers for any advice you can give.

not sure on whats i best do now, if i up the fsb more it starts to cause issues, i increased the volts but unsure if memory is holding me back now, what i like to do is do is try to get the cpu more stable at a higher fsb, but what i read my memory is may be the issue, just like someone to confirm this, or if i am doing something wrong else where.

Cheers

what kind of ram do you have? yes it absolutely can be an issue, but what brand do you have, if you have a set is it mixed and matched? upping the vcore is not recommended too much higher by your temps I see there.

where it says memory on your comp specs, thats where you should have your ram details

i have 2 banks, one 2 gig and the other 1 gig, both different makers.

2 gig = Nanya tech pc2-5300 333mhz
1 gig = Crucial Tech pc2-5300 333mhz

I have got access to a second 2 gig nayna chip but when i used that it only showed 3 gig on my system, and could not get it to show all 4 gig, thou it did in bios, so i used that in my media centre, and taken the one gig from that.

Would you advice using the second nanya back in the computer so it runs 4 as the same spec's, thou vista shows it as only 3gig.

But either way both chips show same specs on it.

32 bit OSes can only use 3 gigs, so nothing is wrong there, your ram is pretty generic, which can be a limiting factor, so can your psu and mobo. I would not say it is worth buying new ram just to test and see if you can OC higher, you just have to be happy with what you have cause any of those three things I just stated could be whats has caused your wall. anyway, you wouldn't be able to push it much higher with your current cooling setup. It's a nice OC be happy with it, I don't think you'll need anything higher anyway will you?

Many thanks, i can try backing off on the NB volts a little, but yes i more than happy with the current setup, i was thinking of a new CPU heatsink and cooler, maybe that will help out, guess i new to this and like to see what ways around there are.
Cheers loads for your time thou, very greatful, have a good day there.

Hey... Could be the memory or mb holding you back. You can up the vcore between 1.3v to 1.4 on the cpu. If you going to go higher then 1.5v then you need a better cpu cooling. Try not to go higher then 60c on the temps. I was able to hit e6700 at 3.6. ran stress for 8hrs. on 61c. But you can maybe hit up to 3.4 stable.
Find out how high you can go with volts on the memory you have.
