It doesn't matter if you can't find the options in the bios, all it means is that when your processor is not being used it runs at a lower frequency. But when you start using your CPU (for example playing a game) it will run at full speed which is 2.4ghz in your case. Go ahead and do the 1333 mod, run a stress test like orthos and if you pass you don't need to do a VID mod, if it fails then do the 1.4v mod.

Don't know if that's because the mod itself didn't work or the MB won't boot with the chip set to 400. Need to research that a bit..

Any suggestions? I've struck out searching the web..

Heya there guys! This mod sounds awesome and I'm going to try it when my Conductive Paint arrives. I was just wondering if i'd need a new mobo though, as mine is a Gigabyte 945GCM-S2C and I realise the mod doesn't work on most Gigabyte boards, but is there any chance it would work with mine or shall i scrap it? anyone else had experience with this board?

Btw I've got an E2180 already OC'd to 2.60Ghz but I can't go any higher because of an FSB wall of 266 so I thought if i did the 1066 mod I could reach 3Ghz maybe

Thanks, The Josho.

I'm not sure about that board, the mods definately won't work on newer P35 gigabyte boards but the 945 chipset is older so it might.

Conductive ink pen or copper tape

Electrical tape is also useful

I have successfully done the 1066 bsel mod to my e4700, but i havent been able to get it to go all the way to 1333--

I'm working w/ an intel DG31PR mobo, which doesnt allow bios overclocking, but which is supposed to support 1333 mhz fsb speeds....

I tried the 1333 mod both by itself and with both of the different vid mods and any way i've done it it won't boot. I'm using copper tape, and as i said i got it into 1066 no prob.... Just wondering why this might not work out


I'm running osx86 on it (leopard) but that shouldnt have anything to do with the overclock--- however i did notice that in the system profiler, although it says that the processor speed is 3.47ghz, the bus speed still says 800mhz, so thats kind of confusing but for the time being I was ignoring it

any thoughts?
Diablooo,

I am also running a Hackintosh on a Gateway GT5408. I have the E4300 at 2.4 GHz (800 to 1066 fsb) with the BSEL mod using windshield defogger repair kit copper paint. Stock fan keeps it nearly as cool as it was before mod.

Anyway, Apple's System Profiler is not a good thing to look at as far as judging your overclocking. I believe Apple has it looking at some string on the CPU and does not look at the actual bus for the speed. In Vista (it shipped with it) CPU-Z shows 2.4 GHz and 1.33 MHz FSB, but System Profile from Apple says the clock speed is 4 GHz and FSB is 800. Despite this "About This Mac" shows it as 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.

I was looking to grab a Q6600 for this machine, but intel's specs seam to indicate that it will not work for the 945G / ICH7-DH combo this Intel ViiV MB has. Also, it's only rated for FSB speeds of 533, 800 and 1033 so if it worked in the MB I doubt I could BSEL mod it and the MB like it. Been looking at the E4700 instead so it's nice to see you getting it above 3.35 GHz. I would take that. Shoot I am happy with my $350 Hack Mac Pro, but more speed is always better, right.

So my word to you is don't trust Apple System Profiler after you Mod. It's just does not know what to do with it.

It worked guys! I got it to 3.20Ghz after the BSEL mod to 266!!!

Do you think 64C is an OK max temp? im running the vCore now at 1.408v for stability in orthos (6 hours now)

Totally forgot about this thread. Here's an update on my experience about this mod. It didn't change the start up fsb to 1333, however, it locked the ram:fsb ratio to 1:1 for my board. I used to be able to change it with the jumpers, now they do nothing. But I didn't remove the mod as it doesn't seem to have any adverse effect.

Nice OC I think the limit for E2180's is 72 degrees, so 64 is ok. Although it wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in a new cooler.
