E6400 Oc - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Both 1 gig sticks are in, the both read PC2-5300 (333mhz) in CPU-Z.
The 266 FSB is stock with the multi at 8. And my bios doesnt have an option anywhere to change the multiplyer so im stuck with the FSB which just keeps reseting itself when i try changing it. is there something i have to change in the bios to let it run the higher FSB??

I used to own a E6400...you need at least ddr 800 ram to get a good overclock on that chip. It has a 8x multi..so your no brand 667 ram is going to limit your overclock.

Also, get at least a p965 chipset..or even better a P35. I had a gigabyte DS3 (965 chipset) that took my E6400 to 3.4ghz.

Im not sure if this will help.
But Ive got my e6300 at 2.7 with less than stock voltage.
Could go more but on stock cooler and want to keep the heat down.

Seriously consider a new MB... this one, or maybe if you're on a really tight budget even this would do better for you.

But P35 chipset would be the way to go. I doubt anyone here as experience with your board, it might be tough to work out why you can't get an FSB increase to stick in the BIOS.

On a P35 board you can get the e6400 up over 3GHz easy.
