is that a prebuilt computer. I know a few prebuilt computers use ECS motherboards, and the BIOS hardly lets you change any options. If your computer is prebuilt, you are probably not going to be able to overclock through the bios. However, you could still overclock using software although it is not as good.

I would loosen your timings to 5-5-5-18 while you are OC the CPU. The once you get the cpu where you want it, if anywhere, then tighten the timing.

PS. My e2160 does 3.05 ghz @ stock volts on my board so there is something that is restricting the oc and its not the chip. Probably the board.

I had a quick look at your BIOS and you do not appear to have the option to set a divider. A way around this is to manually set your memory frequency to match your FSB each time you make a change. This can be a pain in the butt however it may be the only way to keep a 1:1 ratio.

The next problem that you'll run into is that in order to run 1:1 your memory will have to run at 800mhz to match the default of your CPU and depending on your memory that simply may not be possible. Since your memory is 667mhz by default I can't see you getting much beyond 800mhz anyway.

sorry for late reply,
I just want to OC my E2160 to 2.4 or 2.6 I don't want 3.00GHZ now , I think I can attempt that freq. using a 667MHZ memory but how ? ,
and how to calculate the DRAM frequency from the FSB frequency ?
BTW what you think about this MB will it OC better than my current ECS ? and any one sugest me a good OC MB with that price ?

You'd probably have less overclocking options with the Asrock board you linked than your current ECS board. You could always try running your memory 1:2 by loosening your timings and setting it to 750mhz while your FSB is set to 1500mhz while utilizing an x8 multiplier.

To be honest I've never been a stickler for 1:1. I've been running 10:6 during my maximum stable overclock with no stability issues, errors under a night long run with MemTest and no BSOD's.

Yes, 1:1 is good for stability but if I can get my rig stable at a higher overclock than 1:1 will allow then I'll take it.

if you can't change mem divider then you can try the bsel mod on your e2160. just google it

a shot of my bios is attached to make every thing clear
just tell me what to put in these setting (frequency , CAS latency , rase to case .... ) to overclock more than 2.00GHZ .

I dont want to use bsel mod or any hardware modifications

Finely I did it I passed the 2.00GHZ bar it was a PCIExp clock problem , I changed the option PCIE clock sync to enable in the BIOS ,
BUT I have another problem when I pass the 2.2GHZ freq BIOS cannot detect my HDD !!! does the CPU Overclocking affects hard drive ??

It may. I have a feeling it is the board because I've put this E2160 into 3 boards and all booted at 300x9 first time.
