How much time to oc?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys!

With the e2180 on the DS3L with the ZEROtherm Nirvana or Tuniq Tower and also Mushkin HP series 2GB dual-channel DDR2 800, how much time would you expect to spend on oc'ing to 3.0GHz and beyond? (hopefully to like 3.5 or something! That'd be kinda fun if it's possible)

I am expecting "it depends", so if that's the case, then let's get some ballpark figures. I'm just doing some mental planning ahead, and I don't know if it'll be a week, one day, 3 hours, or even 20 minutes.

And if there's anything else you can tell me really quickly here before I get this system and dive into the existing how-to's, I would greatly appreciate your time.

Plan for a day. It just depends, it might give you a hard time or it might not, better to have a day to finish it instead of having to leave in the middle of all of it to do something else.

I went to 3GHz on a E2180 right out of the retail box . The chip did 3GHz on stock volts. I was very much happy that night. 3.5 is a different story takes a bit of tweaking, and some E2180's don't reach that speed. Can't really give you an estimate. A lot of different factors affect the final oc.

If you buy a brand new e2180 you will not be able to do 3.5. 3.2 will be very easy but these chips don't OC over 3.2 very well at all. The earlier verisoin did i.e. the one linskingdom got to 3.7 but the newer bins are not OC that high.

3.2 was still very fast.

Five minutes making appropriate changes in the BIOS before stress testing. If unable to boot, or stress test fails, back to the BIOS to make more changes and repeat. It helps a little to familurise yourself with what the settings in the BIOS actually do before hand. I suggest downloading your motherboards manual and Google for some reviews of the board and other people's clocking results beforehand.

To fully get the most out of the overclock and hardware I have had my 2180 since November and hit a high of 3160MHz at 1.4375. There is bunch more to go and I mess around with it everyday almost.

I would say if you are on it and want to get it done 30 min to an hour if you know the motherboard and whatever time for stressing. 12-48 hours is best if it is 24/7 machine.

I suppose considering that it's a Dual-Core, I probably won't even care if I can't get over 3.2. That's probably going to be insanely fast, huh?
