Overclocking my Intel E7200

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
HEY ALL

This week end, im planning on buying the following system:

Asus P5KC
Intel E7200
4GB DDR2 1066
2x 160 Sata drives (RAID 0)
8800GS 348MB (i think it's 348MB, it's not far off if i'm incorrect)

i will also be purchasing the Asus Silent Knight for a CPU Cooler, and replacing the chipset cooler with a better one (not yet decided which)

the reason for the Intel E7200 is cause it's Cheap and can be put up to 4GHZ whilst stable.

I will NOT be putting it up THAT far, i'll looking to put it up to around 2.8GHZ – 3.2GHZ

I just want to know how much life it will take out of my CPU, and how long it will take before i start seeing errors.

I'll be running Vista Ultimate 64-BIT

Cheers, Aiden
My Rig.

Download CoreTemp from www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/ and it will display the processor's VID, that is your stock voltage so set the vcore in bios to that number then work your way up to 3.2Ghz, you are 97% sure to get that speed on stock volts. The processor's life will not be reduced very little if not at all as long as vcore is under the max spec of 1.3625v and the temp is no higher than 74c.

When overclocking you will alway run the risk of reducing the life of any component. I have such problems before.

Some safety tips

3.0 GHz @ stock Vcore = 2 - 3% overall life lost
3.2 GHz @ 1.215 Vcore = 4 - 6% overall life lost
3.4 GHz @ 1.25 Vcore = 6 - 10% overall life lost
3.6 GHz @ 1.28 Vcore = 9 - 15% overall life lost
3.8 GHz @ 1.315 Vcore = 10 - 40% overall life lost
4.0 GHz @ 1.35 Vcore = 20 - 50% overall life lost
4.2 GHz @ 1.365 Vcore = 40 - 65% overall life lost

These result are if you run at that speed for the duration of the processor a life of a processor is normally 20k hrs - 35k hrs. Another not to make if you processor reaches 70C it will near on 1/4 its life instanly due to the stress amount of heat if your processor hit 100C it will 1/2 if not 2/3 reduces its life if you hit 200C you have basically confused your cpu and themel shutdown will occur but you should not hit these temps bios will not let you.

over volting like packing it with 1.4 will reduce its life by near 1/4 or a 1/2 due to the power comsumed.

I hope this has helped

8800GS? Why not get the new ATi 4850? Looks to be much more kick-ass card for about the same price.

Seen some for $139 AR... (EDIT: sorry, that's US $, I just noticed your in AU, but, do prices follow the same trends over there?)

EDIT again: Oh, now I see some 8800GS as cheap as $79 AR...

And also if you think about running a chip at 4.25 24/7 it will kill the CPU very quickly

this is completely useless.

the degredation theory is based off of voltage and load. since every chip is different and require different voltages for different speeds, this table is completely useless except for the single chip it was recorded from.

example. E8400 [A] can run at 3.6GHz @ stock voltage (1.225V), where as mine requires 1.265V for 3.6GHz. and E8400 [A] can run 4GHz at 1.3V, where as mine needs 1.39V to boot at 4GHz. so if the owner of E8400 [A] creates a table as such:
3GHz @ 1.225V
3.6GHz @ 1.225V
4GHz @ 1.3V
4.5GHz @ 1.39V

i would not even be able to boot following that table.

well im new at this overclocking i just oc my 8400 to 3.6ghz. 9x400 no added volts with 1066 corsair memory. runs a little hot so i order a ocz vendetta 2 hsf. very happy with this settings.

now i want to overclock my dads e7000 with no added voltage to about 3.0 - 3.2 with stock hsf. he has the corsair 800. what should i set the mult and fsb so i dont need to buy a after market fan.
