overclocking e6320

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey,
i'm overclock my e6320 on my MSI p6n sli-fi board
i'm at 1550FSB (x7) with
1.35NB voltage
0.625 +Vcore

my goal is 1600 FSB
i tried to increase the Vcore to 0.750 at 1600 but it didn't post
the only next notch on the NB voltage is 1.4 and i'm too scared to make this jump, as the max voltage is 1.5
what should i do?

I've put my pointers into categories for you, to make it easier to read


CPU


--> Don't let your CPU go over 60.1c during load / stability testing


--> Don't put more than 1.5v through your CPU


--> As a rule of thumb - More voltage = More heat


--> Use Prime95 to test your CPU's stability, a good 8 hour run with no errors and you are ok


--> You can find out more information about your CPU on This Page




NORTHBRIDGE


--> 1.4v / 1.45v is fine for you Northbridge, i wouldn't hesitate using that voltage


--> Make sure that your northbridge won't overheat, have a fan blowing air across it or directly on it


--> Northbridges don't tolerate temperatures as high as a CPU will, the cooler the better



RAM


--> Have your RAM dividers @ 1:1 - You may be OC'ing the RAM also


--> Check your running your RAM at the correct voltage


--> Consider running your RAM @5-5-5-15 Timings


--> If you're unable to find your RAM timings, press CTRL+F1 when in the homepage of your BIOS


--> You can find out more information on your RAM on This Page



OTHER


--> Lock your PCI-e slot @101MHz - You may be overclocking it, and it can damage your GFX Card if its too high




Hope this information helps you mate

thanks!
so you're saying that my current 1.408 is absolutely safe?.. interesting
i've seen people running it so much lower.
well i upped the vcore to 1.408 and i'm on 1550 FSB (2712 mhz)

and for the PCI-E - I have been having some trouble with it . i think it is damaged but not due to the CPU overclock. the only options for PCI-E frequency are 100-200 and nothing automatic. always locked on 100. i mean it lets you choose a certain frequency from 100 to 200
i'll buy a northbridge fan and put it over the heatsink and then up it to 1.45 (i've already upped it to 1.4)
