Done all that mate, still shows at '200mhz' in the BIOS M.I.T CPU host clock frequency. I really don't know and am considering to get a new board for 2 graphics cards.

XIGMATEK HDT-S1283
Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2GB (2 x 1GB)
Antec True Power Trio TP3-550
EVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB 384-bit GDDR3

I want to try for at least 3.5ghz.
What do you guys think my chances are?

Thanks again
The 8800GTS 512MB is better than that GTX and cheaper

The E8400 is better than that E6600 and the same price
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=3574211

With that E8400, you'll blow right past 3.5GHz.

I run 1.3875 BIOS (which is actually 1.3275 Vcore) for 100% stable at 400x8 = 3.2ghz currently. Consider using this to keep your memory at 1:1 (sig says ddr2 800). I made no changes to DDRv, FSB, or (g)MCH (north bridge) voltages to obtain this stability.

Is your reading that you're giving us from the BIOS or from a program? The BIOS is always ~0.045v higher than the actual vcore.

Did you use thermal grease? Check to see if it's seated properly and make sure you didn't put too much grease on it. Remember, when applying thermal grease, you aren't making a seal or a gasket, you're putting just enough to make the die look dull. It's to fill cracks/crevices unseen to the human eye, not to make a layer between the two.

Also, you can turn off smart fan management so that you know how the processor reacts under full fan cycle.
I'm using Coretemp and CPU-Z for all my readings. I'm not at home right now, but I know you're right about the Vcore. The Vcore shown in the BIOS is much higher than what CPU-Z shows. I settled for 3.30 GHZ at around 1.375V or 1.381V in this bios... which I think CPU-Z shows as MUCH less. I think it was 1.25ish? I know it sounds crazy. I'll check when I get home.

And after I burned the processor (Q6600) in for a while (Orthos for 20+ hours on two occasions, and running the processor for a few weeks at normal load) temps actually got lower. Now my max temp is 60 at full on load on cores 0 and 3... cores 1 and 2 go to 58. So I've decided to stay at 3.3 with my memory divider at 5:4. I up'd the MGH and FSB .1 for stability purposes as well.

Now I'm just waiting to get a 8800GTS G92 once I pay off some bills.. or if I'm feeling spendy, a HD 3870 X2.

Ok, I got home and checked my voltages. It runs at 1.2750v... under load. That is some serious Vdroop. I wonder if will cause unstability in my system? It passed 12 hours of Orthos, but I noticed today when I got home that one torrent program crashed. I wonder if it has to do with my overclock and the Vdroop? I'm wondering if I should up the voltage a bit in the BIOS to compensate or just leave it as is.

I'm seeing my temps go up to 66,60,60,66 now too with Coretemp. Anyone able to verify if I have a 10 degrees overhead because of the way coretemp measures temps vs. intel specs?

Hey, guys:

My name is Attirex and I'm a PC and overclocking n00b ("Hi, Attirex!"). I just successfully built a PC (still can't believe it actually works!) and I'm interested in squeezing out a little more oomph.

In any event, I currently have the GA-P35-DS3L motherboard (with latest firmware update) in an Antec 900 case with an Intel E8400, Corsair 650w PSU, 4GB of Crucial Ballistix 1066 DDR2 (PC2 8500), and the XFX 8800GTS Alpha Dog Edition (factory overclocked). Oh, and a big ole aftermarket CPU fan/heatsink. I've downloaded and installed all of the latest drivers for the chipset and everything else.

So two main questions/issues:

1. I found step-by-step instructions for configuring the BIOS on page 124 of this thread. Anything else I should know regarding my particular set-up before I accidentally fry my motherboard, memory, and CPU?

2. I might have received different revisions of the same brand/type of RAM sticks. I ordered both from Newegg, about a week apart. The first set is labeled "BL12864aa1065.16fd5." The second set is labeled "BL12864aa1065.8fe5." Not only that, but when I compare the circuitry b/w the two sets, it's different. Hm. Games run fine at stock settings (WoW, Crysis, CoD 4, etc.), but if I use the EasyTune app on "Easy Mode" to crank up the CPU settings to anything above 9%, the games crash or I get memory dumps/BSOD. Should I not be using software to overclock? Or are the crashes related to the possibly mis-matched RAM sticks? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question. :-(

Thanks so much in advance for your time and patience. I'm looking forward to diving into a new, albeit potentially very expensive, hobby. Don't tell my wife. :-)

YK the OG, I set my BIOS for 1.43125v and I get 1.31v in CPU-Z under load @ 3.6GHz. This board is well documented for having a lot of droop in it. You are within limits though for temperature, although I wouldn't press any higher. That air cooler you have is a good one and should give you better temps at that voltage and speed though (unless your ambient temps are very high). You might want to try reseating it. Get some arctic silver 5 thermal paste as well if possible.

can disabling the EIST and C1ST thingy damage the mobo/chip in any way?



thats my CPU-Z thing for ram, is it at 2.0V? or at 1.8V i think its at stock.. ! but my ram is supposed to be 2.1 V

Only if you put way too much voltage onto your chip.

I get horrible vdroop as well. My processor could probably be pushed to 3.4-3.5ghz with enough voltage, but I don't want to ruin this thing. I get 55 deg C under load after 13 hours of ORTHOS with a Tuniq. I'm at 1.368v in BIOS. I cannot run my Ballistix at 2.2v stable, I have to run them at 2.1v. I got my Ballistix up to DDR2-1100 CAS5 and DDR2-910 CAS4 however and they are DDR2-667 CAS3 stock. Right now I have it at DDR2-700 CAS3
