New E1200 User, Need some Advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought my dad a budget build and the main overclocking compenents an an Intel E1200, Gigabyte P35-DS3L, 500W power supply from antec, Thermalright Ultima-90, and a Skythe S-Flex SFF21F fan.

In terms of cooling I think i'm pretty much at the top for air. I want to overlock this cpu to 2.6 to 3ghz if possible. This computer needs to be more reliable than quick so I'm looking for a very stable overclock that won;t kill this cpu.

What do you guys think I should be overclocking it to with this board and at what voltages?

oh, and I have some corsair XMS2 ram that can run at 800mhz. Its a business pc, I am really jsut looking for a decently quick but reliable setting.

2.6G to 3G for this 8x cpu is doable. Give this a try. Make sure get a good read of core temp.

Advanced BIOS Features

CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E) (Note) [Disabled]
CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) (Note) [Disabled]
CPU EIST Function (Note) [Disabled]


MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)

CPU Clock Ratio (Note) [8]
CPU Host Clock Control [Enabled]
CPU Host Frequency (Mhz) 350
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz) [100]
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) [Manual]
Memory Frequency (Mhz) xxx xxx select the one close to 800

System Voltage Control [Manual]
DDR2 OverVoltage Control [+0.1] check you ram default voltage
FSB OverVoltage Control [+0.1]
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1]
CPU Voltage Control [1.34]

If it is unstable, adjust the one value at one time so you know what went wrong when it fails.

I'd suggest keeping the thermal monitor on to be honest just for safety sake. The default voltage on the DS3L is 1.8V for memory like most Gigabyte boards.

wow. exact settings, thank you. rep+ for you. yeah, that seems close to what settings I normally used, i;ve built 3 computers int he past your with these P35-DS3 boards and I love them. Usually I leave everything to stock except the cpu and ram voltages.


so you think 1.34V shuld do it then?

oh, btw, I'm also using an AMD HD 3450 256mb so that shouldn;t draw too much power either.

Spec sheet suggests the max thermal threshold is 73.3C so as long as it is under that, I would take the processor up to 1.45V-1.5V as it is 65nm.

I keep mine at 1.5v 24/7 with a Tuniq Tower. It doesn't need that much, but I knew it could take it so I didn't feel like messing with it.

I sit at 3.0ghz with 375 fsb and 8x multiplier. Memory multi at 2.0. 3.0ghz is my top though. Won't go 1 fsb higher.
