E6300 Gigabyte DS3L GSkill DDR2 800 need help with RAM.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Recently rebuilt the rig around the E6300 I already had. Running 400 x 7 I easily went to 2.8 GHz, but anything above that, and the system becomes unstable. I've tried losening timings and tweaking the voltage but have been reluctant to go too far with it, since its all new stuff and I'm not really looking to blow it up right off the bat since I'm not really familiar with RAM overclocking. Any suggestions on how to get it stable to say, 3.0 or 3.2 GHz?

Try...

-Setting your RAM Divider to 2.0 or 2.50
-Your board's default RAM voltage (Auto) is 1.8v, add (it gives the options of +0.1v, +0,2v etc) to your recommended RAM voltage specs.
-Try giving your NB +0.1v to stabilize your FSB. I believe that would be the MCH OverVoltage control.

I'm not very clear with the MCH and FSB OverVoltage control. I give both of them +0.1v and it has been running like that for over a year now. You should be fine giving it a quick test.

Also, are you sure that your CPU isn't lacking any voltage?

Well, the first time I booted it up, it had all the powersaving features enabled, and booted at 1.4 GHz and 1.12 volts. The CPU is at 1.325 in the bios right now. The RAM was booting at 266 MHz, its now at 400 MHz and the divider is 2.0 or 1:1. I notice you have GSkill as well, what is your running at? I'm just trying to get an idea of what I should be shooting for.

The power-saving feature will disable itself whenever your CPU is under load. So, there shouldn't be any problems at all leaving it on, though you may disable it if you wish.

You are slightly confused. The settings that you changed from 266 to 400 is not your RAM speed, but your FSB. Your FSB x CPU multiplier = CPU speed. The RAM in the other hand is your Memory Frequency.

I am currently running 367FSB x 9 multiplier = 3.31GHz CPU. Memory Divider is at 2.5, which sets my RAM at 914MHz. RAM timings are 5-4-4-12 with 2.0v (+0.2v in BIOS)
