I agree - I've read other reviews of the kit I have and most can run at least up to ~850mhz. Mine can't seem to be stable above 810mhz - no matter what timings / voltage I try.

I'm about to try throwing in an older OCZ kit I have - its the Platinum 1GB kit. It's half the size but I've overclocked it to 900mhz in a couple other systems no problem.
It's a test. The CPU multiplier reduction will ensure it isn't your CPU causing the instability above 3.6Ghz. If it's stable at 420 FSB, then you know the RAM or northbridge aren't the problem, it's your CPU.

If it isn't stable, it could be an MCH or northbridge issue rather than the RAM. The DS3L should get you an FSB of 450+ easy, but check your memory timings. Sometimes a low TRD (Static Read delay) will cause instability. Try memtest86 - maybe the RAM is just buggy, period. Any RAM should overclock 20 Mhz.

What do I set the "System Memory Multiplier" for when I'm using 1066 RAM instead of 800. I had it at 2.0, but it's showing 800:800

What am I missing?
post #1834 of 4644
What do you have your FSB at? 377? if its 377, put it to 2.5 and it should be almost 1000.

What I have done is aim a little higher than I should need and then fire it up and run Orthos small fft's level 9 for 10-15 minutes and then go back to bios and knock the voltages down 2 levels and repeat. Once I see an unstable boot or crash during Orthos then I go back and bump it up and run my longer testing.

I also never rely on blend settings when testing the voltage because you won't be sure if it is the memory or cpu that caused the crash. Use the DOS version of Memtest86+ burned to a cd and boot that up just to test your memory.

Using these methods has saved me a LOT of time that I previously wasted waiting those 6-8 hours for a stable check. It has also helped my OC with a lower and stable voltage setting that blend will crash. You will rarely put your CPU under the kind of load that blend will do so it is kind of overkill.
K, I tried your method

Right now, my cpu is clocked at 3.058 Ghz (278 x 11)

My Vcore is 1.328 after Vdrop

My RAM passed memtest, but Orthos gives me an error after about 55 minutes. I'll try bumping the vcore up 1 more notch to see what happens. I didn't think I would need this much power at around 3.1 ghz

Pretty much I just got an e8400 yesterday to replace my e2180. My e2180 could OC easily to 3.33ghz with a minimal up in voltage. Now that I'm trying to go higher than my motherboard's rated 1333mhz FSB I'm running into issues.

I can take the e8400 to 400x9 = 3.6ghz no problem I am currently running orthos, it was at 9 hours stable when i left for work this morning. At this speed my ram runs 1:1 @ 800mhz.

If I try 420x9 I can make it into windows but orthos fails within minutes. I've tried loosening my ram timings to 5-5-5-15 and even 6-6-7-25 to get some sort of stability. I've also tried upping the voltage to 2.2V.

I'm fairly convinced my ram is holding me back - not my motherboard. But I guess I want to be sure before I go buy new RAM.

So I guess my question is to anyone with an e8400 and our great motherboard - what kind of RAM are you using - I'm probably just going to grab a 2gb kit of 1066mhz ram to prevent it hindering my overclock.
If your memory is the G.skill with the red heat spreaders then I have the same issues as you. They are a pain to clock over 800mhz. Even worse is that I have 4x1 and that is harder yet to get stable on this mb. It can be done though because I have seen a lot of posts on those who have gone well beyond 900mhz with these sticks. I just don't have the patience just yet to deal with leaving my computer sitting unused for that long in DOS mode. At least with Orthos running in windows I can do other stuff.

This board sucks the juice, mine is running at 1.4v at 3.0ghz. but my psu is not the best in the world so I think that is why I see others with some super low volts compared to what is stable for me. There are just so many variables to each system that there really is no cookie cutter way to set these things.

Yeah, it's at 9xx something now, but it's still 800:9XX

Shouldn't it be 1066:9XX?

It's stable at 264 fsb x 11 = 2.904 Ghz

When I bump it to 267, it fails Orthos at around the 9 min mark.

I have Vcore set at 1.35. After Vdrop, the voltage is at 1.312.

My DDRV is +.3 so it's around 2.1

It shouldn't take alot of power to get to 3 Ghz. What should I do?
I have almost the same exact setup as you (with the exception that I'm using an Arctic Freezer 7 HSF & 4GB of RAM (Geil Ultra, 5-5-5-15), but I'm able to get to 3.003GHz (273fsb), Orthos stable +9 hrs.

I actually set my Vcore to 1.35v then dropped down the voltage one level at a time & eventually got it back to stock voltage stable (1.325v stock). The only voltage I increased was the DDR voltage (+0.4) because my RAM's optimal is at 2.2v (even though 1.8+0.4=2.2 but only shows as 2.06v under load, what the heck is that about?)

I'm thinking your E4500 didn't come from a good batch OR you missed a setting in your BIOS.

Did you turn these off?

* CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
* CPU Thermal Monitor (TM2)
* CPU EIST Function (SpeedStep)
* CPU Smart FAN Control
* Change all the 'performance enhance' and 'vga booster' functions to their standard/disabled/auto settings.

I have the GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX version and hope I am in the right forum. Xeon E3110, 2x2gb Patriot 1066 mhz Ram, Vista 64 bit Ultimate.

I am new to OC and just lower to average technically.

Someone told me to flash my BIOS because I am running a XEON E3110 with this board, and they said the board might not be 45nm ready. So when I used the @bios windows program and got the new BIOS I got the beta version by mistake.

Now, I go through POST ok, and Vista starts to laod, and the little loading bar goes for about 10 seconds, then it flashes very quickly for a half second the "blue screen of death", and then its starts to POST again.

I read what someone said about maybe needing more voltage somewhere if it crashes during loading the OS. Where would I increase voltage, and to what amount?

Thanks.
