slaney30,

I hope you can post your M.I.T. settings soon. I have been messing around trying to get past 2.7GHz without success.

Here are my best stable settings, at 2.7GHz with BIOS F7. I have tried setting the FSB to 312, 333 and 356. With certain settings, I will get into Windows, but Orthos bombs after 3-25 seconds. Other settings I cannot get it to post. At those FSB settings, I really have to give it juice--at least 1.525v!

CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) Enabled(tried "Disabled" at higher FSB)
CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2)Enabled
CPU EIST Function Disabled
Robust Graphics Booster Auto

actually my current temps are not that great i believe, it's 32-40 on idle (with core1 begin about 8 c hotter then the rest for some reason) and 48-55 on load (accordingly core 1 is the 55 rest are on 48)... if i'm not wrong i should be doing better right?

Just an update to my progress, if anyone cares.

Got the Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 Pro today. I'd type in ALL CAPS to emphasize what a difference it made, but I will post actuall numbers instead. First before installing the fan I checked temps w/ the stock HSF and my 24/7 OC of 2800 Mhz, at 1.350 Vcore. All temps tested by using Orthos in "Blend" mode at stated run times, and temp reading via Core Temp 0.95.

STOCK HSF RESULTS:
Idle: 47/46
5 mins: 56/55
12 mins: 56/55

AFTER INSTALLING AC FREEZER PRO 7:
Idle: 33/29
5 Mins: 41/40
12 Mins: 42/41

This is no joke. I knew a better HSF would help... but dang! I never knew it would be so drastic.

At any rate, I've now got things perfectly stable at FSB of 400x8 (3.20 Ghz) with a 1:1 ratio with ram at 800 Mhz. But I had to ramp up the Vcore to 1.475 in Bios. CPU-Z, however at this settings shows an actuall Vcore of 1.376. I'm not sure what's up with that. Is this a problem with my PSU? No matter what, I'm quite happy knowing I'm running a full Ghz faster than stock!

Now my main question is just how high everyone thinks is "too high" for Vcore on an E6400? And why does what CPU-Z show so much lower than the Vcore setting in my Bios? I understand there is some Vdroop when loading the CPU from when Idle, but obviously this is not a Vdroop issue. I'm wondering if CPU-Z is known for showing a lower value?

EDIT: I now have it stable at 3.52 Ghz (440x8), but it took a Vcore of 1.5875!!! (Which CPU-Z reads as 1.536 for some aparent reason.) Temps level out at 55 degrees after about 14 minutes of Orthos "blend" mode. Not bad, but it seems this much voltage might be harmful even though my temps are "ok" so to speak?

Looking for more advice. Thanks!

If you have the DS3L this is your bios, (currently F7) this is Rev 2 board, the Rev 1 may be the same don't know for sure.

No Skydawg, that is incorrect. CValley posted the correct site for Rev. 2.0, but I think most of us have 1.0, which is here:

And Aberg, I'm not OC'ing expert yet... but I've heard temperature is what matters the most up to a certain point, as opposed to voltage. I'm sure there is a recommended stopping point for VCore, but with temps that good, it's tempting to keep pushing it!

F3 bios didn't help. I still can't overclock -1 or +1mhz with my 8800gt installed. I also tried the newest BFG bios, the one that fixed the fan speed issues. No luck. Anyone have any ideas?

I wouldn't go with any vcore that gives you a CPU-Z read vcore of 1.5v or greater. So I would reduce your vcore until CPU-Z shows less than 1.5v. Otherwise you're definitely shortening your processor's lifespan. Temperature isn't the only thing that matters.

Congrats on getting up to 3.52 though, that is a great OC!
post #359 of 4644
On my board, CPU-Z, Speedfan, Everest, and BIOS read the vcore as 1.28v idle and 1.22v load when I have it set to 1.32~v in BIOS. I guess there's a pretty significant vdroop from the board. On the other hand, this CPU's running at 3.8ghz with 1.22v loaded .
