E2180 Impressive Results on EVGA 650i Motherboard

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been on a quest to build the fastest machine I can for the lowest dollars possible. After barfing at my 2.96ghz stable E1200 build that I did on my $59 EVGA 650i motherboard, I decided to go slightly less budget and grab an E2180 CPU from newegg.com for $68 (I missed the $49 and $59 microtech sales).

The good news is that I'm very impressed with what I've been able to do with VERY MINOR tweaking! Here are my results so far on a lapped AF7 with AS5:

3.25ghz - 9 x 362mhz - Orthos Stable (69C 1.4v 967mhz DDR2)
3.37ghz - 9 x 375mhz - Orthos Stable (72C 1.41v 1000mhz DDR2)
3.40ghz - 9 x 380mhz - BSOD
3.40ghz - 9 x 380mhz - Orthos Stable (72C 1.4725v - AFTER CPU LAP!)
3.40ghz - 10 x 340mhz - NO POST
3.50ghz - 10 x 350mhz - NO POST
3.62ghz - 10 x 362mhz - Boots Vista / Orthos BSOD <90sec 1.45v)
3.75ghz - 10 x 375mhz - Boots Vista / Orthos BSOD <30sec 1.45v)

The 3.62 and 3.75 boots into Vista REALLY impressed me! When Orthos crashes at these speeds my temps are tapping 73-74C which seems to be my problem (obviously) so I'm wondering if a better cooler and a CPU lap can get one of these stable???

PS: Idle temps at 3.25ghz and 3.37ghz are 37-39C in a WARM ROOM)



ADDED: I haven't done any benchmarking yet, but the current $485 PC build is running 5.7 / 5.9 / 5.9 / 5.9 / 5.9 / 5.9 on the Vista benchmark.

Indeed. A very impressive result from these recent batches of E2180. Make sure get a good read on the load temp and do a full stress test. Keep it under 70c as possible. You can set the AC7 fan to 100% and give it a try.

I'm gad I got this result, considering I got shafted on my E1200

A better cooler won't do very much considering your ambient temps. Though that sure is mighty impressive of an overclock.

So, you think the 3.67 and 3.75's are unattainable, even though they boot to the desktop?

ADDED: I'm thinking that my FSB hole is at 340-350 and my max is 375 or so, based on the few things I have tried so far, agreed?

3.25ghz - 9 x 362mhz - Orthos Stable (69C 1.4v 967mhz DDR2)
3.37ghz - 9 x 375mhz - Orthos Stable (72C 1.41v 1000mhz DDR2)
3.40ghz - 9 x 380mhz - BSOD
3.40ghz - 10 x 340mhz - NO POST
3.50ghz - 10 x 350mhz - NO POST
3.62ghz - 10 x 362mhz - Boots Vista / Orthos BSOD <90sec 1.45v)
3.75ghz - 10 x 375mhz - Boots Vista / Orthos BSOD <30sec 1.45v)

ADDED2: I failed to mention that the "Idle temps at 3.25ghz and 3.37ghz are 37-39C in a WARM ROOM" are when the system steps back to 6x multiplier. I'm thinking that at 9x or 10x it would idle at around 45C

ok silly question here.how do i know wat voltage to have if im running my cpu at lets say 2.6ghz.its not much of an overclock but i jus wanna get it there cos i can only get it 2.2ghz right now.one more thing does a bigger power supply mean better overclocking?

Ok firstly please try not to post your own questions in someone else's topic. It causes confusion and clutter.

Every CPU is different. What one guy manages to get on his CPU will be very different to yours. It's a lot of trial and error. I suggest you look for people with the same motherboard and read up on some FAQs about overclocking. Don't try it untill you're pretty sure you know what you're doing...

And no, a bigger power supply does not always mean better overclocking. Unless of course your PSU really sucks and can't handle the load being demanded from your processor.
Bye Bye 775

1) A quality power supply should let you get higher and more stable clocks, but on this processor, I don't think you need all that much power to get a decent overlock.

2) 2.6ghz should run on stock voltages no problem. I'm typing this message at 3.37ghz OC on this CPU with Orthos running 45 minutes in the background and I'm only sitting at 1.42 VCORE. 2.6ghz should but no matter what you set it on really

I just lapped my CPU with 600 and 1000 grit and relapped the heat sink a bit with 1000 to smooth it out a bit. I dropped from 39 idle to 33 idle (NICE!) but my temps under orthos full load are acting really strange now. I'm bouncing from 59C to 72C over and over again like a mad man! Before, it was mostly 69-72C stable while running! I'm wondering if it is because I had 150+ hours on the AS5 on the previous runs, and now I have only 1 hour on the AS5??? Odd.

I still can't get the 3.62 or 3.75ghz boots stable under orthos for more then a minute or so, but I'm beginning to think its my NB or memory problems now.
