Disable speedstep (think it was called that?) in the BIOS. It is a power saving feature.

i didnt look for a speedstep, however, i did find and DISABLE both EIST and C1E. Disabling those 2 fixed my problem.

want to hint on how you manage to get the GT stable at 730 core?

thats mad freaky freakish! im guessing the pci volt in the bios? i have mine at +.1V currently. trying out 700mhz now. (need to dl ati tool though)

edit: then again. im on the f4 bios. gonna upgrade in a minute.

Could someone post what they have their power management setting set to? I am still having the problem when I power off, the PC restarts. I need to push the button to get it to stay off.

Also, the BIOS keeps resetting when I restart. I am not sure if it is due to the issue I am having with the power or not. I have played with the settings and I can's seem to get it figured out. My OC is stable for 12+ hrs both blend and CPU on priority 8. This is driving me nuts and I am hoping it is not the mobo itself. I really don't want to go through an RMA.

First let me say "Wow!" I happened to find this forum the other day after doing my third build with this board. I purchased the board about a week ago, just by browsing newegg and looking for a mobo that best fits my needs. Little did I know I found such a diamond in the rough! Originally I did not plan to OC this build, but of coarse this forum gave me a major itch that I just HAD to scratch! Now it's a full fledged rash. :-D So much so, that I haven’t even played World of Warcraft for almost a week!! (Lol)

On with my questions and issues.

First off, my core temps (via Coretemp) before any OC'ing, to me seem much too warm. Idle they hover around 46-50 C. Under full load (via Orthos) they climb to around 54-55 C. Knowing the most common causes of this I began the night by completely removing the stock HSF, cleaning off the old thermal grease and applying new grease and re-installing the HSF with absolute certainty that I seated all four clips completely. Booted the computer back up, and temps are the same. This E6400 chip I'm using is from my last build, which was with a $40 PC Chips motherboard. This chip always ran about 50 C on that board too, but I always attributed it to a very poor quality motherboard. I've never had any heat related problems, other than it concerns me. Obviously I'm using the stock HSF, so I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to spend 20 bucks on the Arctic Cooler. With over clocking, I got the temps up to about 65 C with an OC of 2.96 with Vcore bumped to 1.375, which CPU-Z shows actual VCcore of 1.328?!?! (I assume this is caused by the normal Vdroop issue?) It ran perfectly stable at this speed, and didn't give any physical signs of being too hot other than the temp reading it's self.

Besides my temp issue, I can't beleive how easy OC'ing is with this board for some one with such limited experience as me. I began by preparing all the other bios settings like disabling speedstep and C1E, locking the PCI-e to 100 mhz, setting voltages to manual (left them all "normal" to begin with), and etc. Started out increasing the FSB in small (10-20) increments, and leaving the memory multiplier at 3.0. I figured I’d see how far I could push my 2 sticks of G.Skill. As I discovered, they can be pushed well beyond 1000 Mhz with no problem. After getting the FSB over about 360, I had to add about .03 Vcore for stability. At that point I also added +.2 to the RAM (Since I had it running well over 1000 Mhz),+.1 FSB and another +.1 to the MCH.

I got the FSB up to 370 (2.96 core clock) with increasing Vcore to 1.375. But that was it. I couldn’t get it to be stable any higher than that. I tried changing ram multiple to 2.0, and experimented with more and less voltage to CPU, FSB, RAM and MCH. Depending on the adjustments, it would do things ranging from simply failing a short stress test with Orthos, to rebooting during windows load-up, and even completely rebooting and resetting BIOS just after post. (Which, by the way, is a WONDERFUL feature!! I didn’t have to jump the CMOS once!) Any ideas here? Obviously I will also need to deal with the heat issue as well if plan to keep this machine OC’d full time. Again I’m a beginner at this, so I’m probably leaving out some important details that I didn’t think to keep track of. I’m also currently at work, so this is completely off the top of my head.

One last question… One thing I don’t yet fully understand (and probably never will) is what the advantage to setting the FSB:RAM to 1:1? I did some memory bandwidth benchmarks at various memory multiplier settings from 2.0 up to 3.0 with the FSB at 370 (all of which seemed perfectly stable) and obviously there was considerably more memory bandwidth with looser timings with the multiple set at 3.0, than with having a 1:1 ratio by running the ram slower. I assume that in my case, I will get more performance keeping the memory cranked up, and that 1:1 becomes important when (if) I figure out how to push the FSB beyond my RAM’s OC abilities?

For good measure, I lowered the FSB down to 333 (Just a nice middle ground number, and RAM seems to run real nice at 1000 Mhz.) So for the moment, I’m running it full time at 2.66, with all standard voltages except +.1 on the ram. This way it doesn’t seem to run any hotter than the standard clock speeds.

Again, thanks for all the wonderful info, and the itchy rash!

I think I remember reading something that said setting the bios to halt on no errors solves that.

Yeah, tried that already. Still happens.

What fan profiles are you using? At stock, it started to be unhappy in the upper 600s, but with modified fan speed settings, it was much better.

I set my fans to 40% always, 60% when over 55, 80% over 65, 100% over 70. It reached 80 once, but only for a few seconds. It's almost exclusively 40/60. At stock, the fans ran at 25 or something crazy like that.

aberg12012, a good heatsink and fan like zalman series would work good.

someone correct me if im wrong, but i think with 1:1 ratio on the memory alows you to push the FSB higher to overclock.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong (I am still relatively new, but I've been reading and testing a ton)...

A memory ratio greater than 1:1 is basically a waste since your RAM can't stuff data through the FSB any faster than the FSB speed. Since you'll be keeping your RAM speed lower to stay 1:1 with the FSB, you should be able to improve your timings through overclocking which will do more for you than increasing the frequency past the FSB.

Also, as Xeo said, if your FSB/CPU overclock is being limited by your RAM, then you should definitely have a 1:1 ratio and loosen your timings to attempt to go faster. Bumping the FSB/CPU to the ideal overclock is the more important part of it. RAM obviously helps, but it's not as pronounced at the higher tweaking levels.
