I've tried with C1E, EIST and SmartFAN all turned on and I've tried turned off and nothing.

Hey now, I set the RAM timings on the BIOS to "Auto" and currently they're at 5-6-6-19 @ 804MHz (SPD=2.4)

Can I manually set the timings to 4-4-4-12?? Would it hurt the RAM?

BTW is 1.45625V on the E2160 too high to be running at 3.0GHz??

THanks a lot Schroedinger
It makes no difference that you're running it at 3.0ghz. If it's 1.45625v at 1.0ghz, it's 1.45625v at 3.0ghz.

Your actual vcore is about 0.045v less than the BIOS setting. Keep that in mind.

Intel specifies your chip at 0.85v - 1.5v VID. So that should be fine if you watch your temperatures.

People have reported that it does hurt and it does not hurt.

While I'm not sure why you'd run 8gb of memory if it's not a server (hopefully you atleast have 64bit OS), I run 4x1gb with no problems with my overclocking.

-Can I safely push the bios voltage past 1.5, so that the cpuz non load voltage is at 1.5 to try to push further?
-Can anyone think of any way for me to push my cpu a little higher without so much VC? (NP2H mentioned that he thought my memory was holding me back, they're DHN9Ls by crucial, running stock volts / timings 5-5-5-15, is that really the possible answer here? They're one pass of memtest stabe, I'll have to run it more later)
-Is there a way for me to change the command rate on the RAM on this board?

Thanks!

1. Yes, you can raise BIOS Vcore above 1.5 in order to achieve an actual VCORE (idle) of 1.5v or greater. The difference is usually 0.045v. However, it's never a guarantee that it's 'safe' once you've gotten higher than 1.5v.

2. Is it really a possible answer? That's a bit insulting. The reason I think your memory may be holding you back is because in order for you to go faster you'll be pushing the DDR clock higher than it's rated. I don't know how well that memory overclocks, you may need faster RAM. Or, you may need to raise the DDR voltage / loosen the timings.

3. You cannot change the command rate. It is 1T for 2 slots filled and 2T for 4 slots filled.

Sorry NP2H, didn't mean it as an insult, I just don't understand. If I run at a full 10x multi, I wouldn't max out the ram. No matter what multi/fsb I use, I can't get over 3GHz, and it's taking me 1.488 VC to get there.

Any of you guys know of the ga p35-s3g? and if so does anyone know its overclocking capabilities? I am sorry to as i kno its no ds3l but i figured this thread would be the place to find people who know ga boards.

Hey very informative thread!!

I have actually read it in its entirety. It has helped me with overclocking my rig. I am a newb so any advice you can give me would be appreciated.

I have OCed to 3.24 ghz(360 x9). Cpu-z core voltage reads 1.312 but bios reads 1.38750.

Memory timings are 4 4 4 12, multiplier at 2.0 at 2.1v. Running at 720mhz (I probably need to get this closer to 800 right?). I could easily get it to run at 800mhz if I chose to knock back the cpu to 3.0ghz but would that be better?

Just ran prime test for a few hours with a max temp of 47C (and mid 20's idle). I didn't see it go past that temp AT ALL. However, I cannot exceed 3.24ghz and be stable. If I go slightly past that (10mhz), prime crashes and if I go past that, it won't even post. This is of course with raising the respective vcore (raising it at least 4-5 notches still won't let me post). Have I reached my limit? If so, that's fine. I just want to know if I have though since my temps are still pretty low.

Other important settings are as follows:
PCI express freq - 100mhz
PCI-E overvoltage control +.1v
FSB overvoltage control +.1v
(g)mch overvoltage control +.1v
(The preceding 3 I read somewhere, maybe not here, that it would maintain stability if I raised a .1 for all 3. Please let me know if I'm wrong)

I tried to run a higher fsb with a x8 multiplier but that would not work for me at all. I also disabled both CPU EIST Function and C1E.

Hi guys,

I updated the Overclocker's table in the first post with you who PM'd me the right information. I'll probably do an update every 3 or so PM's I get (just because it'd be a pain to update the table, screenshot it, zip it up, and reupload both to the thread for each one individually), so be patient, and your score will be up there soon enough. Just remember to PM me or NP2H with your info, or it will not be added to the table!

Please remember to include ALL the information that is necessary to fill in all of the columns in the table! Exceptions for superpi and 3dmark scores, as those are not required information.

Thanks!
