E2180 can´t get past 2.9GHz? Need help - Page 2

post #11 of 15
You may just be at a wall, but I am guessing that something other than vcore is stopping you. The value ram may not be appreciating your messing around, for clarification you are keeping at under 800MHz by using a ram ratio and not running it at 1:1 for FSB of 1000MHZ??

A little update. 2.9GHz wasn´t as stable as I supposed. Left prime95 running while away and when I came back 7 hours later the system had restarted. Checked logs, it crashed but temps were 47/51°C while the test ran, never hotter. Lowered my fsb to 280 and upped vcore a notch. Running memory frequency as close as 1:1 as possible, always under 800MHz (PK5-SE doesn´t let you type values, it gives you some options and you have to pick one of the values). Getting some vdroop, as I choose 1.35V on bios and cpu-z shows me as 1.32V. Testing with prime95 again... any other software I can use besides it?

Hi,
Your RAM looks fine. I think you just need more voltage.
Just bump up the voltage a couple of notches on the northbridge.
Give the processor a little more voltage. Keep an eye on load temps though, as increasing voltage is the main cause of increased heat.

Did an orthos torture test for 12 hours, and it ran stable, max temp @ 57°C. I upped vcore to 1.3280 (cpu-z reading) and will stick with this OC until I get a new cooler, for now I think 2.8GHz with stock HSF and almost stock vcore is pretty nice! Once I get a new HSF, though, I´ll need help again

Thanks everyone!

No problem. Even with a better cooler alot of people would be very happy with that overclock and those temps. When the time is right, post back on here and i'm sure people will be glad to help you
