Divider at 8:15?? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Yea, true 1:1 is not needed but obviously if he neglects the divider and gets it running say 950MHz for the ram the ram might not handle that so bye bye oc, but if you lower your didvider you can runn all the way up the fsb ladder without worry of ram causing issues.

Or can ram run at any speed anymore??

Now I'm not familiar with the 680i so maybe it's auto is pretty sweet and will keep it at the right speed.

Those guides are outdated.
Yeah, I've always thought about the date on those things. hehehe

I'm almost positive that he can set the divider at "Auto" and forget it Or at least should be able to set it to where his Ram is not OCed at all!

Well, just for the sake of fun, I decided to set the FSB to 300MHz (but I enter 1200 in the bios).

I left the vcore at stock (manually entered), FSB voltage at Auto, memory at stock (2.1v, manually entered), and the Memory is "overclocked" to stock (800MHz 4 5 4 11), and now I'm at 3.0GHz, with a 3:4 divider. I think that's pretty awesome. And it hasn't crashed yet. About 2 days ago, it would have crashed by now. I think it was due to this: I discovered this morning that my video and sound cards were not quite in all the way due to user error (mobo was flat on the floor, but on top of a mobo anti-static bag), so I put the mobo on top of the clear molded plastic case it came in, and now there's no chance of that happening again.


So far, so good. I'm gonna run Orthos blend for about 15 minutes and watch the temps.

The E2180's should be able to reach 3.0 with stock voltages, although mine needs 1.325 on the vcore to be stable at 3.2! Temps start to rise quickly as voltages increase, so I leave mine at 3.0

Oh, this mobo is sweet. I can choose from Unlinked, Linked and Auto. Unlinked is self-explanatory, and so is Auto. But check out the options I have in Linked.

I have uploaded screenshots of each choice in Linked. I think that this is kinda sweet.

With those pics, do you see them as thumbnails? I do. If you do too, then how do I change it so that they are not thumbnails, but just text links?

You really must be enjoying yourself. Glad to see that you're getting more involved in OCing your system. The more options that you learn about, the higher you can push your components safely Oh the joys of OCing!

Yes, thumbnails. You have to click on the little ICON of the mountain and put your picture on PhotoBucket, or something of that nature

I suppose it might be worth mentioning here that my e2180 is pretty new. It has a pack date of 12/17/07, and it's batch # is Q744A144. I'm not saying I know anything about batch numbers or pack dates, but I do know that the newer e2180's seem to have a wall of like 3.2GHz.

Aw. Ok. The only reason I ask is because I saw people with pics attached like I do, but they didn't show as obnoxious thumbnails.
