Help with OCing E4400 on Stock Cooling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Got a new work PC that isn't running quite as hard as I think it can.

It's weird- usually sits at just 1.2GHz but then if you put it under stress, it jumps from 6.0x to 10.0x multi (putting it up to 2.0GHz).

I don't want to mess with it without having advice because I know that it'll be running sweet at 6.0x for LOTS more FSB, but then might just crap itself when the multi changes itself up to 10.0, haha.

What should I change to get some more power with minimal risk of damaging hardware?

CPU: E4400
Mobo: Foxconn P4M900-8237A
2gig DDR2 RAM (Running at; DRAM freq: 266.7MHz, FSB: DRAM @ 3:4, timings 4-4-4-12) (Specs; PC2-5300 (333MHz))

Ideas?

Cheers HEAPS

Disable,c1e,and eist.that will stop the multiplier from changing.The fsb isn't cghanging its the multi.And up your fsb a little at a time running 1:1 ratio with your ram.Yoou won' t need to add more volts til you get past 3.0 at least .youshould take vcore off of auto and manually set it at 1.36+ or- a little[dont know all your settings] and check with someone here or manuf. of ram for voltage settings on that too.but that will get you started ,remember disable c1e ,and eist
