Hi there :-) well the new mobo is installed, everything seems to be working ok, I will be updating drivers and tweraking what I can at this stage. But very shortly I will back for help.

This mobo has all the bios options I was missing before and then some, im more than happy with this choice, or the choice that Coffee directed me towards :-) cheers dude.

I would normly at this point get everything up and running as normal and start playing with settings. But this time im not cvhanging anything without asking and discusing why and how. I hope you can guide me along..

:-)

The person you really want to PM is Linskingdom, he is the e21xx and abit ip35-e expert. (his threads are worth a look too)

This guide is a great starting pont -

I can't say do this or that as all processors are different, one may overclock more than the other.

First update the BIOS if you haven't already

Just start by putting the RAM on a divider, then up the CPU FSB by 5-7mhz at a time. Then when windows starts BSODing or BIOS needs a reset, start to increase the vcore a little and try pushing the FSB a bit further.

I am now running @ 2.7 and happy as larry.

I have OC my RAM. Now what should I do.

If I need to add more specs please ask. Im still noob, trying to learn but im still at the early stages. I have skills I can offfer in retuern...!

Can you go higher than 2.7?
What are your temps? (Are you on stock cooler?)
Put the RAM on a divider to go higher (make sure the RAM isn't holding you back)

I can push the FSB upto 320, anything more thzn that it still boots but then shuts down almost straight away. Could you explain what might cause that, is it a heat or volt issue? I have never seen the CPU over 58c, and that is at load, so im a little confused.

What do you have your core voltage set to?
My e2180 runs at 55*C under load at 2.6ghz. So if you have the stock cooler they run hot. I've had it up to 3.4ghz but it was then getting up to 65*C and I backed off after than until my new cooler arrives. 58*C under load doesn't seem too bad.
The instant restart is just a bad overclock. The voltage can go up to around 1.5v fairly safely. But more voltage means more heat for the pathetic stock cooler to cope with. Also try bumping the Sout Bridge voltage up one bump in the BIOS and give the northbridge voltage 2-3 bumps in the BIOS to help stability.
Also be aware NOT to use the + and - buttons in bios for voltage control as they are weirdly reversed. Nearly put a fatal 1.9v through my cpu doing that!. Just hit return and then use up and down buttons to move the selector dot to the voltage you want. 1.9v would be very very bad news for the cpu.
