Need help - first overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Find this :

CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266] <<<----FSB Speed (Front Side Buss)

Turn it up.
post #12 of 18
One of the key things to remember, is only change one setting at a time! If the computer fails to boot/becomes unstable, you know exactly what caused it.

You need to turn the memory multiplier down a click, to avoid overclocking the RAM. You can then raise the FSB speed by, say, 10 MHz, boot it up and stress test it (using OCCT or Prime 95). I'd leave the voltages alone at the moment - just set them to manual so the motherboard doesn't do anything strange. Set the CPU Core Voltage to match what your BIOS says is normal.

I suggest going thru all the settings and disable/enable them in bios before setting any voltage/freq/timings. The GA board will save/exit/reboot if you do, ive done it a bunch of times.

After you have save/exit and booted to windows to be sure its all OK. restart and go back into bios.

set voltages/mem timings and save n exit, complete boot to windows again. then restart

back to bios and adjust CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [266]

put it to 275, save n exit, boot to windows and run a stress test.. I suggest OCCT 2.0 for its 2hr cpu test..

if stable, restart, back to bios and go to 285.... repeat til OCCT 2hr cpu test errors..

GA 965P DQ6 Website be sure your bios are up to date as well... F11/F12 are the latest official, dont bother with beta bios, they are just for cpu support

I saw you all suggested that I bump up my CPU Host Frequency (MHz) to 266, but right now it's at 100. Should I turn it all the way up there?

System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V] <-- default is 1.8V, 1.8 + 0.3V = 2.1V set this to add up to your ram's voltage requirement.
PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
(G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
CPU Voltage Control_______ [No higher than 1.4875] Id suggest starting at 1.325 til unstable than bump it up as needed

You will want to set a multi of 9 and up the FSB 10 at a time and stress in between with OCCT 2.0 or orthos (cpu test/small FFT's)... once errors occur, bump voltage up.... You should be OK to 3.0 on stock cooling

Max temp for that chip is 70c, Id stay below 65
I've done everything here and I opened up CPU-Z and for some reason my CPU is running at 960 MHz. What happened??

Your CPU is running in safe mode you may need to flash your bio's I had this problem with my E7200 on a 650i chipset

I've just upped the CPU host frequency to 333 MHz and it's running at 2.99 GHz... gonna run OCCT now.

OCCT found an error after 2 minutes... what does this mean?
