OCing problems on P5W DH

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Man, this is getting frustrating. I know people say that tweaking your system just right takes weeks, even months.... but I'm just getting more and more frustrated with this build.

P5W DH... Has anyone had luck with it. I've seen a thread over at XS.com (211 pages so far) with people talking about the board. I've read through some of it, and will more than likely read through all of it. I've tried to follow their ideas and figure things out for myself, but have not had any luck! I know there's something I'm missing. I haven't been able to get a stable OC above 350 FSB can't post above 385....

If anyone out there stuck with this board, which I have been assured is an amazing board, just very particular, I would love to learn the tricks of the trade.

Thanks,
AE

I've gone from 3200MHz all the way up to 38000MHz on my P5W DH Deluxe.

I'm going to take a guess and say your CPU needs more cowbell. Cowbell is AKA vcore

Raising the FSB and MCH voltages helped my higher OCs a small amount.

Really we need more information to help you, you didn't tell us almost anyways that we couldn't have seen from your signature

sorry. I've tried raising Vcore, tried changing settings, tried what seems like everything I can think of. I've taken the Vcore up to 1.6+ (Water cooling ftw) and have not been able to get stability. Currently I am using Orthos and SetFSB 2.0.b.15f to see how high I can get the FSB to run. I've changed the MCH voltage, but any setting other than the lowest only gives me another ~5MHz OCing from it. I've changed the FSB voltage and this did nothing for me. I've tried them separately, together, anything I can think of and have had no luck. I have disabled everything under the onboard hardware section, I have tried both SPD and manual timings, I have tried with and with out Hyperpath 3. Nothing changes anything as far as I have found. It's like there is a certain setting that I keep missing that will shoot my stable FSB up 50 or 60 MHz... I just can't find it.

I don't think it's the CPU right now because I have it set at a 6X multi and am failing at 350 FSB.

My board goes upwards of 420 FSB. My CPU is the limiting factor.

Are you making sure your ram isn't holding you back? The timings or speed could be bad or even not enough vram.

Yea, I've backed the ram off. It's running at 750 speeds and I have tested it at 800 at the same timings, but have been unable to set my FSB to 400 stability. Really, that's all I want is a 400 FSB stable.

Looks like your having no luck unfortunately.

You probably already have, but try:

vcore: 1.46v
multi: 8
FSB: 400, (400 x 8 = 3.2ghz should not be out of the question, try 7 multi if it is)
c1: disabled
speedstep: disabled
hyperpath: disabled
memory remap: disabled
mem timing: 5 5 5 15
mem voltage: 2.3v, (is stock voltage 2.2v?)
Mch voltage: 1.65v, 40 mm fan on northbridge does help, I had one and I could boot at 430 FSB.
FSB voltage: 1.3v
ICH voltage: auto
PCI e: 100
PCI Freq: 33.3
Mode: standard, do not select turbo.

also disable all fan control and set fan rpm monitoring to ignore in hardware monitor. I've had a fan some how ruin an overclock due to the hardware monitor trying to read its speed.

If it doesn't work maybe try different memory if you can or try one stick at a time.
Which bios are you on? I was on 1901 when I was at 430 FSB.
