Looking for overclock settings

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I just got through reading the overclocking guide posted by durch. I was curious if anyone else has a similar system to mine. I would appreciate it if you could post your settings that you have so i can kind of get an idea of what to set my settings on. Thanks in advance for your help.

Look through your BIOS first, and get accustomed to what each setting will do. What settings do you have in your BIOS that relate to overclocking?

This includes, but it not limited to, Reference Clock (FSB), Multiplier, HTT Multiplier, vCore, vDimm, RAM speed settings, and a bunch more things.

EDIT

Just re-read your post, and I'd like to say someything else. Just because someone has nearly, or an identical setup as yours, does not mean their settings will work for you. Many factors come into play.

Always overclock yourself. Don't go strictly by other people's numbers. Definitely take them into account, but do it yourself. My first time overclocking, I found two people with the exact same CPU as mine. Same Mobo, same CPU stepping/revision, too. Sadly, I couldn't get mine as far as they could get their's, no matter what settings I tried.

It's a tentative and tedious process, but do it yourself!

You should try to get to 250 clock speed for a decent oc. The MB won't post any problems and neither will the cpu. The "unwilling" part could be the ram. You could try setting the ram speed to auto at first, and work your way from there.

What specific RAM do you have? Some DDR667 with Micron D9s should hit DDR900 ish with 2.2v.
Knowing more about your RAM will add to the overall recommendation to OC.
For now, set the RAM to 1 speed below its default, drop the HT multiplier from 5x or 1000 to 4x or 800.
Keep an eye on the CPUs full load temp and keep below the mid 50c range.
Your CPU default voltage (vcore) should be 1.35v, with that cooler you should easily full load temp safe in the mid 1.4v range.

There are no magic settings, but a conservative beginning...

HT: 4x or 800
RAM: 1 setting below default and bump the vdimm up a few tenths of a volt
CPU: 1.4v to 1.47v @ 210MHz or 12x210= 2520 the CPUs voltage is a big variable and that is because each core stepping is more or less voltage hungry.
Chip Set: or N Bridge and S Bridge, increase voltage 1 increment.

Note, you should have a 12x default multiplier, so every 1 HMz increase on the CPU increases the CPUs speed 12MHz

Be prepared to clear the BIOS if you crash it!
Keep notes on your settings for a reference too.

My RAM is crucial but its not ballistix its just regular. Right now i have all my settings set to manual but they are at default settings. My Vcore in speedfan is 1.09 and I'm idling at 27 and on load I'm at 40.

Try dropping your RAM speed one notch, then pushing your FSB up some, don't fool around with volts yet.

On the volts note, however, what is your RAM rated for? Many times mobos don't give RAM it's proper vdimm by default.

Denhamspike, looking good

Are you able to run at or close to stock Vcore with that overclock?

+1 Good job

Hey I had a few crashes after running prime95 for a few hours with my overclock at 2.7ghz. I was wondering if Mabye i needed to up my north bridge voltage a little bit? I had my vcore at 1.3 and it still crashed. Thanks for all the advice.

You will need to add more vcore to get it stable. Try say 1.35-140 till it stops erroring out on you.
