Trying to my E2180 to 3.2Ghz (8x400) - Page 2

THANKS GUYS!

Thread Starter 
I was stable for 2 hours before this screen shot, but then I restarted to put the RAM at 4,4,4,10 timings with stock (1.8V) on the RAM! +.1V on the FSB is the only bump besides the Vcore. I don't need it for Orthos, but I've noticed it helps my games not crash.

This is a great forum you've got here. I'm planning on upgrading to 45nm when they get cheaper, so I think I may just stick around.

Is there any truth that running your RAM and FSB at 1:1 ratio makes your system run faster?

Nice overclock, glad you got it stable!

I dont think that is true. Its pretty much just mhz and timings that are important. Also, usually more mhz is more important than timings. For example DDR2-900 @ 5-5-5-12 is better than DDR2-800 @ 4-4-4-12.

QFT! Congrats on your OC. I've actually got my E2180 stable at 3.2Ghz (8x400) with an increase of +100mv in Bios (+ .1v) and with .028v vdroop at 100% load, I'm at 1.296v in CPU-Z! I'm not particularly liking my temps at this stage (63ºC max in CoreTemp) so I'm gonna keep backing the voltages down until its not stable, then increase back to lowest possible stable vcore.

Just my personal preference, I'm going to try to stay under 58ºC. If I can't seem to get stable at 3.2 and keep temps under my preference, I'll be reseating my HSF. If still not to my liking, I'm gonna lap my CPU and HS! I've got the sandpaper ready, just need to get time to do it

BTW, I went up one notch on voltages on SB, NB, VTT, etc. etc. There are alot of tweaks in this Bios that I don't know yet LOL!

just my two cents: you should prolly be running orthos in priority 9.

and have you tried using the 10x multiplier? i'm at 3.5GHz 1.5V under load with temps at 55*C. 350*10.

ram is running at 1130 i believe but i had other options like 860 or something similar.

Umm...a question about your temps. I was told a while back that the temps in Core Temp were correct but add 15 degrees. I'm not sure if this is true but that would put you at 72 degrees, well above what Intel says is the maximum.

Their maximum may be at the direct center of the IHS and not the actual core themselves.

It's my understanding that the Tjunction max is the maximum temperature at the actual core and -that- is what you should be worried about.

Could someone clarify this?

I'd hate for them and myself to be running hotter than we should be.

just curious but did you try looking at
http://www.overclock.net/2805247-post1.html
as a point of reference?

i am fairly certain you should be able to get a higher OC out of that chip. why don't you try going 300x10 and going up from there? that's how i hit stable 3.4GHz at just 1.488 core voltage.

i have been thinking about going for 1.525 core voltage and trying to hit 3.6 or 3.7GHz but I'm a bit scared of damaging my chip.

edit:: looking back at your post. your temps are really high for your voltage. at stock voltage even with stock cooling you shouldn't be near 60*C... i know with my tuniq at stock voltage i was at <50*C..

Yeah I would look into it.

On my 2180 Core temp is 15 degrees lower then what HVMonitor reads. I use the HVMonitor reading to be on the safe side.

Same here. HWMonitor shows me at 40 degrees while Core Temp will show 35.

The fact that there's 15 degrees difference in my temperatures and 15 degrees difference between what's shown on Intel.com and what the Tjunction max is for this chip leads me to think that I'm right.

Time for reading.

The newest versions of coretemp read temps correctly. I believe .95 and older you have to add 15c.
