e8400 multiplier changing???? - Page 3

post #21 of 24
i have the same CPU and motherboard, along with 1066 RAM. the only way i'm getting successful OC so far is to slow the RAM to 800. any time i manually set any voltages, i can't even get past POST...system reboots a couple times and then the BIOS changes to 'bootable' settings.

sorry this post doesn't really add value, but i want to keep an eye on it since i have similar gear.

No issues is good, as long as you haven't exceeded the max recommended voltage on the RAM. Now, run a stress test like Orthos to check stability, I recommend minimum of 30 minutes, until you get everything where you want it, then run a much longer test (at least 8 hours) to check for near bulletproof stability assurance. And watch your temps.

Well, I haven't overclocked my CPU, so what temperatures am i looking at on this stress test? I have orthos, so I can use that. Will RAM voltage and timings affect my CPU if it's at stock?

Download Coretemp in the downloads section thread, and try to keep it below 70C absolute maximum.......

But that is not as important as keeping the CPU voltage below 1.36 volts. Voltages are killing our E8400 CPU's a heck of a lot quicker than heat, and 1.36+ volts are impairing many of them. If you up the voltage, reboot into BIOS and double check that you are not overvolting above 1.36.
