THE Asus Rampage Formula/Maximus Formula/P5E Deluxe/P5E Thread - Page 104

post #1031 of 2014
Hi,,, Just found this site tonight, and because i have started over clocking, i thought i may get some more of your apions...

Wolfdale :: 2 duo E8400 @
RAM:::OCZ 4GB (2x2GB) PC2-8500C5 1066MHz Reaper HPC Edition Dual Channel DDR2 (OCZ2RPR10664GK)

Running on windows XP.. now i near sure that thats my ram, will look in tomorrow for sure... but any way,, i have over clocked the cpu to 3.6ghz and i am leads to belif that due to the catch being 6m.. that there is no point of clocking any more.. anyone share any light on this??

all i done was move the fsb to 400, and the pcie to 400
set the ai clock twister to moderate, and the transaction booster to 1.

Cpuz, tells me that the core speed is 2400.0mhz
and the rated fsb is 1600.0Mhz and the bus speed is 400.0mhz

I have the volts kept the same and its going great, i dont have a after market cooler,, yet... so what ever you can tell me will be kept tell i get one!!

My ram i do have to make sure thats the right 1066MHz, and at the moment i only have it set at 800mhz, to over clock the ram, what do you do?? move the volts up?? and set it higher than 1600Mhz?? I hear talk of changing the timings, but were or how do you come about knowing what timings to put in??

I have done no playing around with north bridge or south, or any volts for that matter. Thanks guys and girls.

What motherboard do you have? Please fill in your system spec under the User CP tab at the top of the page and Add System.
When you say catch being 6m, do you mean cache, as in L2 cache? L2 cache really has no role in overclocking. PCIE to 400 ? Does it even go that high?

CPU-Z is reading 2.4ghz because you have C1E enabled (aka speedstep). It will lower your multiplier and bring your overclock down when idling. It is good for saving power mainly. I usually disable it when trying to find a stable overclock, then turin it back on afterwards.
To overclock your RAM you have to select the appropriate FSB Strap to set it at 1066. At 400 FSB, you have to use the 400 FSB strap to get it at 1066mhz. Start with the stock timings for now until you fully understand what you are getting in to. It sounds like you dont have a whole lot of experiance doing this so I would suggest reading up on everything you can That way you know what is going on and how the changes in your BIOS will affect your PC performance. I would read through this thread to get an idea of what settings others are using for their overclocks.

C1E is a power saving feature on Intel cpu's. It stands for Enhanced CPU State 1 (not sure how, but it is). If you have your cpu overclocked to say, 3.6ghz, and C1E is enabled, and your PC is idling, it will drop the mulitplier and throttle back that oerclock automatically. Thats why CPU-Z was showing 2400mhz (2.4ghz) when you said you had it overclocked to 3.6ghz. If you do something, anything, cpu intensive (ie gaming, video enocding, etc.) it will go back to 3.6ghz. So it is a pretty handy feature to leave on, if you live on your own and have to pay your own bills .

HAAA.. SAYS the blind man, see what you mean, i drooped bf2 into the task bar, and brought up the cpuz.. it was dropping from 3600, to 2400mhz, nice one, so to turn it of ??? were do you start, not a clue what to look for even in the bios.. I would say the disable button is in there.
And i will open case tomorrow and check that is my ram.. and post back..]]

Thanks for your help, easyer when someone points something out.

Enter your BIOS. Go to the "Advanced" tab. Select the CPU Configuration and you will see "C1E Support" - Enabled. Just disable it and you should be good.

what about p5e3 mobo and it's results ? it's quite different due to DDR3
I'm waiting for HS and will try to pull out some power from my E8400, (targer is 4,,0 )
Does someone have any experience with that mobo and 1333mhz mem?

Hey I just updated BIOS to rampage, it now hangs on the "Republic of Gamers" screen. I cant seem to interrupt it so I cant even get into the BIOS!!!

Any ideas on things I can try? I already removed the CMOS battery and hit the switch on the board. ...
post #1040 of 2014
just hit your reset button and the next time it should boot. mine does that too sometimes, not sure why though.
