Overclocking E2180

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am trying to achieve about 3.3 on my E2180 with a G31M motherboard,

I got it upto 3.2 @ 1.48 voltage and right as I try run Orthos PC will crash after 2 seconds of running Orthos.

Temperatures and pretty decent even on my stock cooling: 68 under full load when running @ 3.2 @ 37 idle.

I did not overclock the ram speeds. ram is @ 800 (stock) unattached from CPU fsb.

Any suggestions? If you guys think my motherboard is maxxed out should I do a BSEL mod on the E2180 then max out the OC after buying a decent cooler?

Thanks.

It's not your motherboard, it's most likely the cpu is maxing out at 3.1ghz, my e2160 maxed out around 3.05Ghz. The new steppings aren't that great.

Is the CPU voltage (which is @ 1.48) is different then the fsb voltage?

And Northbridge voltage is basically the mobo voltage right?

Right. If that mobo supports it. Good advice.

3.2Ghz is very good for any E2180. Check out the thread from Linskingdom in my signature.

But it boots @ 3.2 and can boot higher but just cant pass orthos, not even for 3 seconds. If the CPU was maxed i believe it wouldn't post/boot.

fsb and north are some of the moboboard voltages but as Penicilyn said you could be maxing the chip out

thats not always true. but with the voltage your going to need you are

Alright, i'll up the FSB voltage and the northbridge voltage and see what i get. But 1.48 for CPU voltage is fine right? Or should I go a little higher? Whats the max voltage for the E2180's anyways? Thanks.

If I cant achieve around 3.4 I would probably be looking forward to get an E7200 or a E6420.

you can go higher if you need to. side note are you on stock cooling if you are that could also be part of the problem

it also sounds like you could USE a different HSF. 3.3GHz on stock is probably asking just a bit too much if you ask me. Get like the freezer 7 pro or something. and 1.48v for 3.2GHz sound a tad bit on the high side. (but then again, i have a good chip. 3.2GHz on stock voltage. my VID is 1.3125v) Also, i have to ask this, but what are you using to monitor your temps? anything other than CoreTemp and RealTemp isn't as reliable.

A BSEL mod will not raise the max OC. it will only allow you to get there easier. the max of the chip is the max of the chip. there is no way around that.

Step 1. Buy a new HSF
Step 2. Raise the NB voltage (like the MCH voltage)
Step 3. Relax and enjoy.
