E6300 won't go past 2.6 GHz - Page 4

post #31 of 259
You have memory multipliers on that motherboard that will bring your memory speed down so that it isn't overclocked so high. USE THEM! It is in the bios section of the manual.

You also have northbridge/southbridge/fsb voltage settings if I remember correctly. USE THEM also.

On a 965P board the minimum you have to set it to is 1:1 (can't run unlinked), so 400FSB is 800mhz memory minimum.

And that means that his memory is and will hold him back until he replaces it. I was just reading through the manual and finding exactly what you just said.

A set of DDR800 that will overclock up to 1000mhz is what you need for that motherboard and cpu.

I'm not really wanting to replace my RAM, so how high do you think it will go?

My RAM is @ 760MHz now... Much further.

Also, if it isn't stable when I raise the FSB a little more, what should I change?

mate!!!!! that ram is good for over 800mhz easily.......have a look at this it might help with your settings & hear how well this board does at OCing ...good luck

gigabyte 965


First on the list is the CPU Clock Ratio. This allows you to set your CPU Multiplier from its maximum (depending on what CPU speed you have defines the maximum ratio you can select) or down to 6x for Core 2 Duo processors. Core 2 Extreme you can set any multiplier you want as all Core 2 Extreme processors are multiplier unlocked for maximum overclocking potential.

Next we come to the Host Clock Frequency. In order to change the Host Clock Frequency you need to set the Host Clock Control Option to Enable. You can adjust the Host Clock Frequency from 100MHz up to 600MHz in 1MHz increments.

PCI Express Frequency give you control over the PCI Express Bus. Locking this to 100MHz will give you a stable PCI Express bus. If you want to play with overclocking the PCI Express bus you can adjust it from 100MHz to 150MHz in 1MHz increments.

DIMM Overvoltage control is your gateway to DRAM voltage selections. In BIOS you can set it from +0.0V to a maximum of 0.775v in 0.025v increments. This provides you from 1.8v up to 2.575v. It would be nice if Gigabyte would simply give you the actual voltage numbers of the memory to help you rather than having to do math to get the voltages.

PCI-E Overvoltage Control you will only want to play with if you plan to overclock the PCI-E bus - you can adjust this from +0.0v to +0.35V in 0.05v increments. This is from 1.5v default to 1.85v.

(G)MCH Overvoltage controls the voltage supplied to the Northbridge. This is again available from +0.0v to 0.75v in 0.05v increments. This is from 1.5v to 2.25v

Next is the FSB Overvoltage. This supplied extra bit of juice to the link between the MCH and the CPU. This goes from +0.0V to +0.35v in 0.05v increments. This gives you 1.2v default to 1.55v.

Lastly on the list is the CPU Overvoltage. This is definitely the mother of all settings from Gigabyte. You can go as low as 0.6875V up to a maximum of 2.375v in 0.025v increments. Core 2 processors run around 1.325v normal voltage. So you have a LOT of voltage to play with.


Overclocking

Our overclocking attempts with Gigabyte’s motherboard were extremely impressive.

With a Core 2 Extreme we lowered the CPU multiplier down to 6x to eliminate the overall CPU clock as the bottleneck as much as possible, since we are mostly just interested in the highest possible FSB.

From here we managed an FSB of 443MHz stable. This gave us 2.26GHz with the CPU voltage at default, DRAM voltage at 2.2v, MCH at +0.25v, PCI E at defaults, FSB overvoltage at +0.3v and our DRAM at 1:1 Divider rating.


It should already be clear from our comments, Gigabyte has done a fantastic job in terms of their first Intel P965 motherboard with all the latest features, great overclocking potential and simply great looks; we have absolutely no hesitations in recommending the 965P-DQ6 motherboard to potential Core 2 buyers – two thumbs up!

Ok, the Corsair website states that 1.9v on the ram is still within warranty for your set. You will probably get away with 2.0v if you need it. But you should be able to reach 2.8Ghz with stock vcore (1.325v) which would make the ram run at 800mhz. I think 800mhz should be possible with 5-5-5-15 @ 1.9v. If that doesn't work try 2.0v (+0.2).

I had the E6300/P5B (P965) and it needed 1.415v for 3430MHz. With vDroop the real voltage was about 1.375v in CPU-Z program. 1.375V is the max. voltage recommended by Intel for these cpu's. To o/c to 490FSB levels, you will need to increase the voltage to your ram (980MHz) to 2.0v of 2.1v, depending on your ram. Also the NB voltage might need to be increased to boot into Windows and be stable.

If your DS3 is similar to my P5B, the bootstrap changes above 401FSB to an easier overclocking zone. For instance, it is much easier to boot at 420FSB than it is at 380FSB, but your computer is running slower, due to the change from 266 to 333 bootstrap.

Thanks for the comments guys!

I'd be happy to have it @ 2.8GHz, so I'll just try raising the FSB, and see how it goes

Why is it easier to boot over 401FSB, that's odd, but I'll certainly try it!

*haven't read the whole thread*

Instead of Orthos try memtest for about 30 min. If it fails you know 100% it's your RAM. (Well maybe 85%, could be other things as well.)

Alright sure, I'll try that too! Thanks!

Why is it easier to boot over 401FSB?
