Unless.. you haven't even flashed the bios.
Bios is F7, I found better success using this vs F8a (I reverted back to F7 from F8a). I think I may try taking out one stick of memory and trying everything again. Thanks for the link.

If you have an aftermarket cooler that will fit, then by all means use it. More efficient cooling is always better, but I don't think you need to worry too much unless you plan on pumping the NB voltage up higher as well.

yeah , i dont want to mess with NB voltage ... cpu is enough for me , as long as i can get the E2180 to beat my current cpu ( 2.2-2.4 is all it will take to do that) and im happy

I don't know if it has anything to do with your problem, but the only BIOS that officially supports the Wolfdales is the F8a. I know people are able to boot with earlier BIOS versions and I think some are even OCing with them, but that could well be part of the issue.

It may well be...but I'm fairly sure that F7 proved to be more stable than F8a for my setup...just to be sure I will go back to F8a and try everything again, maybe I missed a setting in there...

Hey guys, I'm currenty running f5 bios. The lowest ram divider I can run right now 2.5. Would updating to latest ver. allow me to put divider of 2? Also, would updating the bios lower my vdroop. I have 1.375v set in bios and cpuz and speedfan reads 1.3v.
Thanks.

I can tell you in my bios i think the cpu voltage is set around. 1.38 something and its 1.34 in the hardware monitor i use . I dont recall all the dividers available but i believe there is a 2.00 selection in there. Id chck but im about 6 hrs in an orthos run .

The OCing features are in MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.) option.


CPU Host Clock Control - enable
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) - set to 380
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) - Set to 100 (this is the deafult for the video card)
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) - change the multi until it says 800 (what ram is rated to)

Then move down to System Voltage Control:
DDR2 OverVoltage Control - +0.2v (this is if your ram is rated for 2.0v, the default for the board is 1.8v)
FSB OverVoltage Control - +0.2v (you might not need to increase this, but at 400 FSB, it will ensure stability)
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control - +0.2 (you might not need to increase this, but at 400 FSB, it will ensure stability)
CPU Voltage Control - 1.35v (if it is stable, try lowering it until it becomes unstable, then bring it back up 2 notches.

Good Luck

Oh yeah, if you hit the [Ctrl + F1], you can change the memory timings to match the manufacturer's specs if not already set.
I can never set my memory at 800, How did you do that? Can you give me the details?

It's there. I'm using the F5 BIOS and I have my memory multiplier set at 2. You need to scroll through the options. The numbers are not in sequence.

You can't directly set your memory speed. It's tied to your FSB and depends on your memory multiplier. You need to try out different multipliers to see which one gets your memory speed closest to 800 MHz, if that's what you're shooting for.
