Starting out slow

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
This is my first overclock. I have my 1280 @ 2.10MHz right now, should I up some more? How much? I have it at stock voltage.

Here's a screenshot:

You have a long way to go my friend. E2180s can generally do 2.7-2.8G on stock volts. Push that FSB and watch your temps.

I just built a system yesterday for a friend. I used the same CPU and set it to 266 FSB and had it running no problems at stock vcore. The board can hanlde 266 FSB by default, so there is no need to make any voltage adjustments to the board's chipset.

With your next screenshot, can you run another instance of CPU-Z showing the memory tab?

My core voltage is jumping from 1.264 to 1.272 with my cpu clocked @ 2.55GHz

Also in bios, my memory says it's running @ 333MHz ("667" I think) Though in CPU-Z says 425MHZ. My v-core on my ram is 2.20. How do I change my tRC to 30?

Try setting your vcore to 1.325v - 1.35v. It should be enough. If not, you are safe to try 1.375v - 1.4v, as long as your temps stay down to 68°C or lower.

Also note that the vcore will drop when you run a stress test on it do to vdroop, which is normal. Your ram is definitely running at DDR2 850. But your ram can handle it! I bet you can run it at 4-4-4-12 timings up to DDR2 900 (450MHz).

As for setting tRC, I dont know, look in your bios under advanced memory timings. It is called Row Cycle Time (tRC).

I tried upping my voltage but it wouldn't let me, I press - + but only "-" would work, it would only decrease. I'm going to try setting my FSB jumpers like the ones in this picture.


Also, shouldn't my ram be running at 1066?
