E6400 Oc

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello All

I have a E6400 C2D and am sorta new 2overclocking, i am wondering how far i can take this proccessor without adjusting the voltage or mem timings etc. I only wanna play round with the FSB. I am Aiming to get maybe 2.5 out of this core.

My Motherboard is: Gigabyte GA-945P-S3.
My bios doesnt seem to show the multiplyer,, why is this?
When i try overclocking even just 20 above stock fsb it just resets itself back to stock fsb,idk why, im stumped.
Do i Have 2 Different Types of RAM?
Would This effect the Overclock of the CPU?
What Temp would Be the max 2run at as its running at 45-50 at idle









Any Help will be apprreciated. Cheers.

get rid of the 945 and get a P35 chipset

just wondering, is your computer custom made? and to answer your question, you do have two different kinds of ram modules.

yeah 533 mhz and 666 mhz ram isn't going to encourage overclockability, neither is your mb chipset

you're toast man

no, i bought it from the shop. i have however put the gig stick of ram in, thats the only thing i have touched

take out the 2 x 512mb 533 mhz ram and see if you can get a little oc

ok ill do that, that was my next step.
another question,, i have a gig a 667 1gig ram that i could swap with the 2 512s,, would that pair better with the gig already in there?
post #8 of 17
yeah 2 x 1 gig > 1 + 512x2 (cause 2 x 1 can run in dual channel where 3 sticks can't)

Put the 667 gig stick in, tryed raising FSB to 280 and it just reset itself back to stock.

at worse put the 2 x 1 gig 667 mhz and move the fsb to 266 (66 x multi oc)
