Overclocking my e2180. Need advice.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I need some advice. I'm new to overclocking, and my e2180 won't go past 2.9Ghz without getting a BSOD. I'm using a DS3L mobo.

Currently: I have FSB at 290x10, RAM multiplier on 2.0 and voltage on 1.365v stable for hours on Orthos. I'm using Artic Silver and a Freezer 7 pro and I get 47c on full load on Orthos, so I want to climb to about 3.2GHz. The thing is it won't budge voltage or not. I put the voltage to 1.381v and bumped it to 3.0Ghz. It boots, but I get a BSOD in about five minutes of Orthos. I'm stumped. Increased voltages don't fix that. What should I do? Help!

What speed is your memory running at when you go to 300MHz FSB?

do you still have your box that the processor came in? If so, could you please post your pack date? The newer chips (i think around November 2007) have not been so good at OC'ing. I know a few that can't get past 2.95GHz even with 1.58vcore. Just the luck of the draw.

Also, make sure you have disabled all the thermal throttling stuff while testing.

Hi and welcome to OCN.... Please fill in your system specs here http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem so that we may better assist you in the future.

Can you get a picture or tell us what the BSOD error message is? chances are its your ram, try running a memtest.

Once you fill in your system specs and give us that message and we will get you all squared away.

BIOS say 600 when I hit 300, since its 2.0 multiplier.

I bough the chip a month ago, but I don't have the box anymore. Yeah, C1E/Speedstep and auto control of fans is off. Anything that throttles the CPU down while idle is off.

Filled it out. The screen goes away too fast for me to read it, but it mentions physical memory/dumping.

Woah my system is like nearly identical to yours. I need about 1.4V in my BIOS to get to the 3Ghz mark so you might need a similar amount. What divider are you running for your ram by the way and make sure you set your ram at 5-5-5-18 timings to ensure that isn't the bottleneck. You may want to bump the ram up to 2.2V as well.

My temps are 42 load with the AC freezer pro and a 1.425V setting in BIOS. Are yuo sure the cooler is seated properly?

Nrgx.

Bingo, most likely your ram, can you post the exact ram your using?

you will need to run a memtest to see if your ram is not bad. It could also be a voltage issue, try increasing the volts to your ram +.2v and see if it helps.... but again you will need to run memtest.

well, it could be a memory issue more than likely, but it could also be that you are hitting a wall on your chip (seeing as how it's a newer chip)

I'm using G.Skill 2GB PC2-6400 RAM. Stock timings were 5,5,5,15 and I loosened it to 4,4,4,12 stable. Should I shift back to stock and bump the voltage up one more 0.1v?

Yeah our systems are identical, but I haven't tried 1.4v. I was afraid to.

lolz that would be the problem, you didnt loosen them, you tightened them

Lower timings => memory operations occur in less time => basically overclocking ram => possibly bad (or just unstable) if your ram can't handle it
