E3110 + 680i = advice wanted! lol

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
ok i've had preliminary success with this chip- i'm at 3.38ghz stable- 1.27v setting- 1.25 reported in bios. and thats with ram at 800mhz.

ok my problem is this- 1500/800 linked/synced works great. as i up the fsb so raises the 800 ram- which is good tested to 930- but 3.4+ doesnt want to boot. when i set for 1600/900 it will boot but bsod or restart pretty quickly. so i thought it was just a fsb "hole" but no matter what i try i just cant get any stability out of it. i've tried unlinked ram, raised voltage in increments up to 1.4 setting(which in bios was 1.37) and no change. just when it does actually boot it runs pretty hot with the extra volts- in the 53-55 range at 1.4. i also have tried upping scp and spp volts- but backed that back off as well due to the heat created. it's a good thing i have that antec case and the abundance of fans!

i think the P32 bios for wolfdale cpu's fairly sucks- i'm kinda curious if p31 would work better for me? i never tried P31 because it was prior to getting the chip and evga reccommends P32.

anyways i don't really care if this chip will do 4-5 ghz- i was hoping for a nice and stable 3.6-3.8 for daily use. hardest part about the whole thing is the newness of it all- 45nm new- P32 bios new- and barely a handful of ppl trying anything with a 680i A1 board. most are going for the intel chipset board for the sure thing- but to be honest i've sunk a bunch of money into this thing- and if all it'll do stable is 3.38 then i'll live with it till possibly better bios or something.


any thoughts or advice are very welcome here. especially where the 680i A1 board is concerned- and cpu voltages because i have seen many different suggestions for that as well. i'm leary because the box says max volts 1.25- so it couldn't take that much more than that to get it where i want it.

E3110 is Xeon version of E8400 and Intel says the E3100 shouldn't go above like 1.22v...

However, I've used X3110 @1.5V for more than 3 months.
No experience with degradation or fryin lol
People are just scared of losing their CPUs. No point of OCing

What voltage where you running to SPP and FSB? I would try 1.45v to the FSB and 1.5v to the SPP. That should make the board stable up to a 460 FSB and above with that CPU.

Hey.. i thought you HAD to have the p32 bios to run 45nm chip on the 680i A1 ???? I thought you HAD to run the p32.. and that it is not just recommended.. but required ?

Correct. When the E8400 was first reased, many 680i owners had to wait till the middle of the week to update the bios before their boards would boot.

my mistake. i read updated wolfdale microcode and confused it with p31 1333 C2D support. 45nm has to use P32.

i will try the voltages you posted and see if that helps. like i said it's my first nvidia based board lol- and i have stayed on the safe side just so i don't screw something up by overvolting. i do hope it'll get me 450+fsb- as that has been the goal all along. if it doesn't work i'll post all voltages and etc and we can go from there.
