Help! P35 Neo, e8400

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am trying to overclock here, and I keep messing up and getting black screen

I have:

Intel E8400
(2x 1gb) Corsair CM2X1024-6400 ver 5.2 1.9v
MSI P35 Neo Motherboard
Nvidia 9600GT 512
CoolerMaster Hyper TX2 Gaming CPU Cooling Fan(Extreme Silent Operation at only 22dba + Overclock Proof)
windows xp home

I am a true noob, can any genius help me on a step by step walkthrough the bios to get a mad overclock?

It would be MUCH appreciated!
Thanks so much in advanced!!!

Check these things in order:
Did you PC work before you began messing with it? Did is POST and go to the OS?
If not, is the memory, graphics card, and CPU secured properly with proper cooling? Is the memory faulty?
Is your monitor plugged in properly?
If it did work before, go back and redo the settings to default or clear CMOS by removing the battery, jumper, whatever on you mobo.
Try booting up again. Go and find a good guide to oc'ing. You should only raise your FSB and memory slightly and try to keep the RAM:FSB divider at 1:1 for stability. Might want some higher quality, more overclockable memory. Hope this helps!

I removed the power, then It went back to optimized defaults. everything works now like when i bought the pc

if you get a black screen while overclocking, it could mean your clock failed

Perhaps hes cranking the volts on his CPU up too much. Can you post your FSB, Chipset Voltage, and NB Voltage for us? Also, stock ram timings could be great.

One thing to look out for, is when you overclock your CPU, you also overclock your RAM. They go hand in hand, so you need to Underclock your RAM before you Overclock your CPU, so that you dont push your ram into a frequency it can't handle.

fsb wouldnt work past 410

voltage to cpu: 1.25
memory: 2.1
nb: auto
sb: auto

ok, sorry i havent been around, here are my details

D.O.T. controll: disabled
Intel EIST: disabled
FSB freq: 400
X9
Advanced dram config:
5
5
5
12
38
12
12
12
fbs/mem: 1:1.00
DDR freq: 800

Voltages:
CPU voltage: 1.1875
mem voltage: 1.9
NB: auto
SB I/O: auto
sb core: auto
vvt fsb: auto

If I raise the fsb above 425, I get black screen and have to pull the plug to get back to the optimised defaults. I guessing my ram freq cant go that high. anyone know if I can change somthing to go higher than 3.6ghz? I am a total nub at this >.<

oh yes, i forgot, sorry Odyn
I disabled configure dram timing and this was the original memory clocks

Might i suggest raising the vcore, 1.1875 seems low for that high of an overclock. Also, as stated before loosen your RAM timings, perhaps to 5-5-5-15?

thanks, that worked, I raised the cpu voltage to 1.21 and fsb to 420. I ran orthos for a half hour, and my temps were signifigantly lower lol, didnt go above 52 C I went for 430 on the usb, and then windows got all the errors after it started, resulting in a crash and restart after 30 seconds or so. Now im at 420 fsb. I dont really understand the ram clocks, is there a way to underclock the ram more?
