Can't make it past 2.8 on an e6400

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey gents,
I've finally got everything working on my nightmare build, and overclocked to 2.8 ghz. I'm running unlinked, because I don't think my memory will be able to take anything beyond 2.5 at 5:4 (unless you guys think it could take it). Right now i'm at:

FSB 1400
Mem 920
Vcore 1.3
NB 1.4
HT 1.4
Memory 4-4-4-12 @2T

I'm Getting 53C load in coretemp (pretty meh temps for a 120 extreme, but i'm going to lap eventually).

When I increase the fsb to anything over 1420 I get error in orthos

Do I need to up my voltages? I just want to get to 3ghz without going over 60c temps, and not having to hike up my voltages to extreme.

Thanks!

you could lower ram speed and raise vcore if necessary

Disable C1E/HPET/Sread Spectrum and anything else that they have on their

I had the same problem...C1E (Enhanced Halt State) was bottlenecking me at 2.8

More Vc IMO.

What's the Vdimm? 2.10 should let to OC to 400fsb on a 1:1 easy, I guess in your case it should be 1600.

I have all the random stuff disabled (as per Robilar's excellent guide). I lowered ram and raised Vcore to 1.38, but it wouldn't boot into windows. Do I need to raise Vcore even more? And how badly is that going to effect my temps?
My bios is at 602 which is the latest for the plus.

Nasgul,
I can't even get 1:1 @ 2.1 ghz with stock timings and voltages, did i get a bad batch?

aright, i'm at 2.9 @ 1.43 Vcore. Again another seeming bottlneck, i brought the Vcore all the way up to 1.63 but was still unable to get a stable 3.0. Alas.

What are your chipset volts, and run your ram 1:1. At 2.9 your ram should only be running 725 which isn't even at stock speeds yet.
