Most of the ram here ^^^ will work well for overclocking. DDR2 ram is so cheap now, you might as well get the good stuff right from the get go. The best thing to do is run the ram on 2.0 and the timings @ "auto by spd" at first, then get your cpu overclock all set and stable, then go back and see if you can get away with tighter timings. (On this board, you can adjust the ram timings by hitting CTRL and F1 in the main BIOS screen.) This is what I did and it worked out well for me.

*If anyone wishes to correct me on this, feel free, I'm all ears because I'm fairly new at this myself.

Sorry, I am new to overclocking....tighter timings? If my stock timings are 5-6-6-17 what would be tighter? Higher or lower? I'm new to all this jazz....thanks

Tighter means lower, so something on the order of 4-4-4-12.

New to this site, but I've had my DS3L for a week or 2 now and have been playing around.

I'm determined to get 3.6GHz out of my Q6600, but I'm running into some issues.

I've got 2 options with my memory at that speed, 1000MHz or 1200MHz, since there's no multiplier inbetween (tried lowering the cpu multiplier and increasing the FSB to no avail, doesn't even post)

And well, I'm being picky trying to squeeze as much as I can out of it, and since I spent 12 hours or so trying to get it to run at 3.8, I'm getting a little irritated with this board.

I can run the ram at 1000mhz with stock timings perfectly stable, but where's the fun in that?

So using geekbench as a benchmark i'm trying to break 8000 points, and there's 2 ways I can do that. 1000mhz at 4-4-4-12 or 1200mhz at 5-5-5-15, both will boot into the OS, and the benchmarks with run fine on 3 cores, but as soon as I kick in the 4th core for a minute or two things start crashing.

Now I still have a few unexplored options at 3.6GHz, I have not touched the FSB or Chipset voltage, they're both still at normal, and I've read more then one review show my Ballistix are stable at 2.2v and 600MHz.

I've tried upping the dram voltage to 2.45v even, but I'm wary of keeping it there, and it didn't seem to make a difference.

So I'm going to play around with every FSB, Chipset voltage combo I can think of, but if anyone has any more suggestions, let me know

Hi guys
im having some trouble getting my E4300 over 2.7ghz,which is what my old 945p would do.
Im wondering if my memory is holding me back,i have xms ddr2 667

i have system memory multiplier @ 2.00
pcie set at 100mhz (also tried auto)
cpu host freq @ 300,becomes unstable after,unable to boot if any highter even though memory is @ 600mhz (underclocked)
i have added volts to ddr +2
dram timing set at auto
mch +2
fsb+2
still no joy
any ideas? is it my memory or is me e4300 a damp squid

I am in the process of setting up my system. I have everything out on the workbench and want to update the bios before putting it in the case. I haven't updated a BIOS in years and note that F6 is an executable vs a bin file. I have only RAM, CPU and GPU installed and it did post. Could someone be so kind as to walk me through the procedure used to do this? Thanks!

To find out if it is your RAM holding you back, change your Memory Multiplier to something that runs your RAM at a lower speed, so something like 3.00 (I think)

@ Losin Sux:

The easiest way to flash the BIOS on this board is to extract your BIOS file onto a USB flash stick and plug it in your system. Then, enter the BIOS when it posts and enter the QFlash utility. The device you have connected should be an option, so just select it and navigate to the file. Please note that F7 BIOS version is out and now the newest

Good luck!

If I tighten my timings, won't things go slower? Because somehow I got my ram at 4-4-4-12 by applying +.2v and it worked, but it seemed slower or something? Anyway to test....or is orthos good for that? thanks
post #470 of 4644
question since im not great at this overclocking business,

the highest i can get is 3.33ghz without getting an error in prime95. i dont know much about voltages and whatnot and not sure if it needs to fiddled with, so if you can be so kind as to assist me :> thanks
