Is this normal? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Sorry for not giving all the details:

The system will boot fine with stock settings.
Someone asked if "60 degrees C core temp or IHS temp?" During stress test the Core0 and Core1 temps ran about 58C. I don't know what an IHS temp it? I was using SpeedFan to monitor.

Things I changed in BIOS to get from 1.8 to 3.2GHz

CPU Ratio: 8x
CPU Host Frequency: 400
CPU Frequency: 3.2GHz
Memory Multiplier: 2.0
FSB Overvoltage: +0.1
DDR2 Overvoltage: +0.2
CPU Voltage: 1.45V
Memory Timings: 5-4-4-10

Thanks, You guys ROCK!

SpeedFan will give you core temperatures and the CPU temperature, which is the IHS (or at least used to be). Your cores can be over 10 degrees C hotter than your IHS depending upon what offset value is assumed. I would not want the cores themselves to get hotter than 65 degrees C, and I would imagine your cores were in the 70s.

Also, 1.45V is an awful lot for a 24/7 overclock in my book; I wouldn't go any higher, and you may need to decrease your overclock and the voltage to have a sustained overclock that won't degrade the chip.

OK, I'll back it off. Thanks.

Some people get away with it just fine and have no problems. It doesn't mean that is your issue, but I would lower it a bit and see if your system is stable for the long haul. If it is, then stress on the CPU could have been part of the problem.

I just built out this system and read everything I could find on OC'ing. Managed to push my E2160 1.8GHz to 3.2GHz. Ran prime95 for several hours with no problems. I have been using the system and playing games for about a week now, also with no problems. Then, when I woke up this morning my system was powered down. I scratched my head and tried to restart but it wouldn't post so I pulled the plug, waited a few second, plugged it back in and powered it up again. It came back to life but after the beep it powered cycled and started back up having automatically disabled the CPU overclock in BIOS.

My question is that I was wondering if it's normal for an OC'ed system to just one day "decide" it no longer likes the BIOS setting that have been tested and running fine. Should I just back off my previous BIOS settings to a new (and slower) OC and just live with it, or do you think something else is going on here?

it happens to me that if the power cuts, i get an 'overclock failed' bios message and have to re-enter the OC.

Try reentering it, doing a quick stability check (looped Crysis CPU/GPU test / 3dmark06), and if it passes, then all's good. If not, then back down a bit...

Also, i tend to leave my system off as much as possible... it hibernates during the day, if i don't use it, and at night i turn it off.. i use 1.425V to get 3ghz on my E2160, and hit 58C max under Orthos...
