Overclocking expertise needed for following set up

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I've looked at this forum for a while but can't find answers for my setup:
I'd appreciate your opinions on how to overclock as much as possible with sustainable reliability:
Asus p5n32 e sli, rev 1103
4 x 1gb samsung ddr2 800hz ram
Scythe infinity heatsink/fan
c2d e6700
Running vista and xp pro x64
700psu
bfg 8800gtx oc
sitecom turbo wifi
24" dell wfp
250gb sata
liteon dvdrw

I've only managed a very basic (3.2ghz) cpu oc by changing fsb to 320 and multi at 10. Everything else is on auto.
pc probe states:
vcore:1.39
1.2vht 1.26
sb core 1.55
cpu vtt 1.36
nb core 1.34
mem 1.89
cpu temp 45 (i think i could install cooler better to lower this?)
mb temp 48

I tried a few combos in bios but got either no boot or partial boot then blue screen. To be honest I'm not sure what all those figures mean!

Thanks

Try to up RAM volts? or try 2 sticks not 4? or more vcore 1.40 maybe? or how bout those mobo temps 48c mine only hits like 36c highest it a 80F+ room?

Are you running the memory unlinked or linked? There is a bios setting for it. Linked means the memory speed and FSB are tied together while unlinked lets them be set independently. Also check what your memory voltage should be, it could be 1.8 but many run at 2.0 or 2.2V. A low voltage setting while running linked could be a source of your problem.

Most Intel CPUs start needing more voltage somewhere around or after 3.2Ghz so upping the vcore will probably get you higher. Watch your temperatures if you do increase the vcore. Is your temp an idle or loaded temperature? 45 is reasonably high for an idle temp. Do reset the heatsink and see if it helps.

Ultimately you need to learn your way around in your bios. It does take time so be patient.
