help with an e6400 overclocking? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
I have the same chip as you. I run at 3Ghz on intel stock air. When I pushed the limits, fiddling with ram, NB and my FSB, Best I could get was 3.22Ghz... That is, without frying my chip by raising the voltage to high.. I think your close too or at your limit right now. Especially if you see temps rise above 65c. Let us know.
Again, I still use the stock intel cooling though. Until tomorrow when I go to microcenter with my tax refund check to pick up a 9600GT and some other goodies...

Maybe there's a limitation... or we're just bad at OCing lol...

hahaha maybe. i ran orthos for 15 mins. but last night i ran occt at 3.2 and i think i have a vdroop i'll post my graph also.



that is my vcore last night



here is my load right now. my temps dont go above 52c even though it shows 48c.

Your temps look fine to me, You might double check but I'm sure 60C core and below is plenty safe. I'd try upping that vcore a little (Keep at or below 1.5 as suggested).....or you could start by upping your CPU VTT (which is FSB Voltage, by the way), but keep it below 1.5 volts. VDroop is good, mine does about the same and it is a lot better than some that I've seen.

3.2GHz is a very respectable OC, from what I've seen 1 has reached 3.4GHz. Whether it was actually stable or not is unknown ATM.

Just play around with the voltage to your CPU, and trust your BIOS Vcore in PC Health over any software. Make sure your running your RAM voltage to it's max specs since your so close to it's max speed, and loosen the timings as need be. Auto might not be best, but usually is fine.

A couple more ideas:

Try the above first, if not stable change CPU GTL0/2 and 1/3 to .63V
Also, you might try upping your NB voltage a notch, but I highly doubt that will help with anything but adding heat. Mine is stable at 445 FSB at stock voltage.

Keep me posted, I've got to run an errand for a while.......and very important:

do the above one at a time. DO NOT rush anything, or we'll just be going in circles.

Are you stabilizing your nb and sb and memory voltages?

Right, OK. You got me on the "stabilize" part of your prior post, thought you knew something I didn't. Hopefully he is getting to that part as we speak (Type)

At 3.4 I sat my SB to 1.6 and my NB 1.55 and my FSB term volts were set to 1.4 and my memory was set to 2.05 volts

I think at least, its been awhile since I worked on my OC

Hrmm.. on the p35-ds3l mobo, the bios doesn't seem to have a place where you can set SB voltages, only the NB (the MCH overvoltage)...
