2.8 MHz e6420 Max?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hello
im currently trying to overclock my e6420 to 3000.0 MHz like iv read that many people have acheaved. But i cant get pasted 2800.0 MHz.

Im currently running stable at 2.8 with settings at:
CPU FSB 1400 (350) MHz
Mem FSB 700 (350) Mhz
which is ratio 1:1
My MB seems to change the Mem timings automatically.
normal setting for mem at 333 Mhz is:
CAS lat: 5
RAS# to CAS#: 5
RAS# pre: 5
TRAS: 15
TRC: 20

My MB has currenly changed them to at 350 Mhz:
CAS lat: 5
RAS# to CAS#: 6
RAS# pre: 6
TRAS: 16
TRC: 22

Iv tried uping voltages with no luck, but im unsure which voltages to change.
the settings I have are:
Vcore voltage (1.38V)
Memory voltage
1.2v HT voltage
CPU VTT voltage
SB core voltage
NB core voltage
Vcore over voltage (200mV/disable)

Oh and CPU temp is about 32

Please please help me! Thanks!

Looks like you need to increase the RAM voltage as you are already 40mhz above the factory speed. And try to set the timings manually..dont leave them on auto. You know what they are supposed to be set to..so set them there and add .5volts for some stability...then run MemTest to see if your RAM errors out.

Vcore looks ok, I think you need to concentrate on your other settings to get further.

ouch...lower that NBv..1.6 is excessive for the FSB you are at..you shouldnt need more than 1.4 really.

What are you using to stress test?
post #10 of 20
he lad..

here is my settings for that Bord...

my CPU voltage is at 1.48v.
memory voltage is 2.00v
try 1520 on the fsb always use 20, [eg 1320]
dont know why but on some fsb number settings that Bord wont boot.

memory use 850mhz unlinked .. note these are the settings i got my Bord to boot...

i have the same Bord..when i get my replacement//
