Then when i restart it hangs on post. with an increased nb and ht to 1.68 and a sb to 1.64 id assume that the mobo would be getting enough power to have no problems. what gives? oh and btw my cpus is a e6750 meaning the fsb is 465*8.
Take it slow - don't rush - and go4life is right!!, dont over voltage.
Since I'm running on air for 24/7 my limits for OC is (by rank) Temperature then Voltage. Maybe if I'm on water my priority will be Voltage then Temperature.
You also might want to try this steps and try to get it stable (OCCT mix test at least 25 minutes)
2,800=350x8>find your lowest NB and CPU voltage
3,150=350x9>increase CPU voltage
3,000=375x8>increase NB voltage
3,375=375x9>increase CPU voltage
3,200=400x8>increase NB voltage
3,600=400x9>increase CPU voltage
3,400=425x8>increase NB voltage
3,825=425x9>increase CPU voltage
3,600=450x8>increase NB voltage
4,275=475x9>increase CPU voltage
4,000=500x8>increase NB voltage
DRAM : FSB = 1 : 1
Timing = 5-5-5-15 (mine is PC-6400 DDR2)
Ram Voltage = 2.1v or refer to manufacture manual (mine is 2.1v)
When ever you feel like "you've hit your max volt or temp" you can stop and fine tune the CPU voltage. I found that its much more easy to get it stable if I increase my FSB by 25 at a time.
Hope this will help you.
edit: its hard to go above 850 DRAM with P5N-D, but it's a very nice board if you want SLIEdited by raydotulung - 1/10/09 at 10:27pm
