Let's overclock my system together - Page 5

post #41 of 69
well since this is the first step i'd say 30mins to 1 hour... once you get close to around +50 or so then we will go to the 2-4 hour tests

Wow, this is a time consuming hobby, isn't it?

I just set the FSB to 210MHz (or rather, 840MHz), and now the divider is 8:15. Help!
post #43 of 69
Not sure about the dividers on the 680i but honestly I would jump in 20Mhz increments until you get to 300 and orthos test for 30 min each jump. After you get to 300MHz fsb start 10MHz jumps and at 370MHz start 5MHz jumps. I add 5 min of orthos for every 5MHz fsb jump, but thats just me and not usually untill I get to 400MHz.

Watch temps and then I would try to lower the multi and see what your highest fsb is. That will enable you to know if it is mb limited or cpu limited.

Gollie already said 3.2GHz was his max so you may be able to hit 400x8 with a 1:1 divider. You'll see a bit more performance than if you go with 320x10 for 3.2GHz.

Hey, that actually made a bit of sense to me. I think I'm getting somewhere.

Good call rx7racer!!! When I first OC'd my PC this is what I did. If you want to see results in a much timely matter, I would see what FSB walls others are getting and go to the one that you think is the most safest. However, it is a much riskier option. Though it would save you time and it would be easier to go lower while finding you FSB wall. In short, go to the highest wall which is causing issues and lower down till you get it stable. That's what I did to get to 3.01ghz on my E2140. but then again that is you calculated risk...

it works for some... so if you want to benchmark this how I would go about it...

I have that board (the LT version) and An e6600 which is not too different from your setup

I just desabled the spread spectrum and un-installed nTune (its crap)

Went to the bios and got 3.0ghz EASY

333 x 9

that help?

Well, it's working so far. But I'm gonna go back to 300MHz x10 and let Orthos tell me what it thinks of it.
post #48 of 69
I'm pretty sure that your E2180 can be stable at 3.0ghz with the M0 stepping... and you can still get higher. i've seen someone get up to 4.3ghz with an e2140...

I Checked back on the previous conversations and saw the screen shots... Seems that your RAM timings are on 5-5-5-18. Once you finish on Orthos, can you try putting it to 4-4-4-12 and set the memory voltage to 2.2v. Then try adding up 10ghz on you fsb and run Orhtos again.

Hey 5Cheeze

I noticed you were upset about having to run orthos for 5 hours

Try a program called OCCTv2 from http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/

Usually this program will prove a stable clockrate at a fresh time of 1 hour!

However, It has known to bring false postives-but this is an updated version since then so that should be gone!


Hope this helps your persuit of performance

Oh, I have it already, but I haven't used it yet.

I wouldn't say that I was upset about having to run Orthos 5 hours. I would say that it's more of "is it necessary no matter what, or should I run Orthos longer if I'm a hard-core gamer?". That's kinda where I was coming from.

Well, I'm gonna run Orthos again. I got the bsod at 3.0GHz, so I backed off to 2.8GHz keeping stock vcore (manually entered), stock vdimm, stock memory clock, timings, and stock CPU.

If it can go for longer than 6.5 hours, I'm going to assume I can move on. I mean, that's long time of 100% CPU usage!


Here I go.
