Overclocked E8200 can make POST, can't boot. *IT CAN NOW* - Page 4

post #31 of 35
These blue screens are either a cause of faulty drivers causing the os to fail critically, or hardware errors causing the system to fail critically. Since you are pushing an o/c, you can somewhat comfortably assume that it isn't related to faulty drivers since you don't have the problems at lower clocks. Honestly I wouldn't push the voltage on your cpu anymore. If your cpu is undervolted, you'd see stress test errors, and if it's severally undervolted you just won't post/load windows. Since that isn't the case I would focus on your memory and your other voltages. Are the voltages you are listing what you read out of the bios, or are they reported by a monitoring program?

BTW, I've already read and experienced vista's severe distaste for a poor overclock. I've found that for a newbie like me, it's better to dualboot vista and xp, and overclock and stress test in xp until i'm 100% stable and only then do I boot vista.

So, you "prevent" corrupting Vista, by corrupting another OS? I guess thats one way to do it.

Why not just increase your voltages a smidge and make the adjustments and stress test in your OS, using programs like SetFSB or ClockGen? ..or use Memtest on a boot CD to test your settings out a bit before booting your OS. <- Point is, there are many ways around your issue, without having to trouble with a dual-boot.

I can see that around 3.8 is slowly becoming un-obtainable. Vista not only dislikes bad overclocks, it bloody hates it. 3.71-3.73 seems to be the best with both NB and FSB upped quite a bit. I'm hesitant to take the Vcore up anywhere above 1.4 just because of what Darin and The Parrot have said, so the only other thing I can think of is more voltage to the RAM (around 2.3 v or so) and that's about all I can bull for here, the good news is under lode it only runs at about 49 c, so I'll take that as a victory.

yes you have won a desprate battle to an extent lol. umm
im having a guess you need 2.2 or there abouts as stock to get those standard speeds from that ram.so 2.3 would be needed for the o/c defo. sounds like a ram issue to me not a cpu issue for the stableness.
but a belated welcome to the e8200 club lol

Well after fiddle-farting around for the last three days I was able to somehow...

POST AND BOOT VISTA STABLE


... at 3.76 GHz. Temps are Wolfdale low (read: awesome)

Thanks to everyone who helped. This is close enough to 3.8 that I doubt the 40 MHz difference would even be noticeable. I'm really happy I was able to get this bad thing to a nice stable temperature and speed, took me long enough.

Here are some stats:

-=Voltages=-
CPU Voltage: 1.34-1.35 Northbridge: 1.55 DIMM: 2.37

{(Temps)}
CPU: 41 c CPU1: 59c CPU2: 59c Motherboard: 56c




In closing; I feel a overwhelming feeling of friggin awesome.
