Cannot hold OC settings

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
hey all, iam new to overclocking. I have a Intel core 2 duo E6300. I have used EasyTune 5 to overclock my cpu. I pushed the cpu to 2300+ mhz and ran applications, it was stable and did not crash. How ever, when i restarted my computer, the settings went bak to the normal 1800mhz. After i increased the mhz level, i did save the settings. But when i restarted my comp, it went bak to the original settings. Pls help. thanx

when booting, the system will say something like "press Del for setup" or something similar. the key needed to enter the bios is different per mobo manufacturer.
you will get several pages/tabs of options.
go to CPU options, and disable everything.
then go look for frequency setting. they're pretty straightforward.
note that you overclock the FSB, which would be 266Mhz. multiplied by 7 you get your CPU speed. increase the FSB, the Front Side Bus, only by 5 Mhz at a time, then boot and test your stability with orthos or OCCT for about 10-15 minutes.

Also fill out your System Specs in the User CP. This helps us easily Identify the motherboard, ram, and processor to better help you with individual settings or specific considerations when overclocking.

dont forget to +rep people that help you ;p

first of all: go to User CP>add system (in the left bar) and fill out your systems specs. this will put the most relevant info about your PC at the bottom of each of your posts. this will allow us to see what we are dealing with. (EDIT: modki, you beat me to it. but i will defeat you next time, MUAHHAAHHAAHA *turns around and leaves*)

anyway, after that, you will notice that you wont get stable at a certain clockspeed. try the following things (provided your core temperatures are well below 55C):
-set your RAM at the slowest setting possible, with high timings.
-read the CPU and Northbridge voltages from within your BIOS and then manually set them to the found values. now increase them by a very small amount. adding more volts increases temps, so do it slowly, and as i said, only when your CPU temp is well below 55C.
-make sure your PCI bus is locked to 33.3 MHz and your PCI-Express bus to 100Mhz. (both +/-10% is OK)

Since you're using EasyTune5 I'll assume you have a DS/S/DQ board.

When you start your computer hit Delete to enter the CMOS Setup menu (What a lot of people mistakenly call the BIOS). Now scroll down to Advanced options and disable C1E, E1ST, SpeedStep, Thermal Monitoring. Now hit Escape and go down to PC Health. Go down to Fan Control Method and select Disable, this allows the fan to run at 100% all the time. Providing extra cooling.

If you don't have an aftermarket cooler already you might consider the AC 7 Freezer it's one of the cheapest and easiest forms of air cooling for only $25.

Now you'll want to backup and go into the MIT menu at the bottom left. Go ahead and enable Clock Speed Control. Should be the first option. Now you'll see that 266 is no longer greyed out. Since you've been to 2.3Ghz go ahead and change that 266 to a 350. Now go down and change the Memory Multiplier from Auto to 2.0 I assume you're using DDR2 800 Mhz here. If that's the case you can go all the way to 400.

Also you can leave the PCIe Frequency on Auto or lock it @ 100Mhz

At the bottom you will see voltage controls. If 400 is not happening you'll need to increase that bottom one from 1.325v to something like 1.35v all the way up to 1.4v if you start to hit 450+

Backup for a second now to the main menu and hit Ctrl-F1. The screen should blink and reset the cursor. Go back into the MIT and you should see some extra options. These are memory timings and are there for later, once you hit a good speed you're happy with see what your auto timings are and try to go down from there.

CPU-Z
CoreTemp

Get these two programs for now. Remember temperatures over 60Cº and voltages over 1.4v can become dangerous. Also be sure to never over compensate on voltages. Move up a little at a time. If you need more help post more questions here. We'll be glad to help.

you can go up to 55-60. 55 is smart since you will have some left for hot days.
