Safe, so long as its stable and doesn't corrupt your OS. You should test with memtest86 and Orthos Large FFTs and Blended. Both are found in the 'Download' section.

Thanks, I will be testing using Orthos shortly.

One more thing, I've heard it is best to keep the FSB & DRAM ratio at 1:1, but would 2:3 be OK? How does this compare with other option such as 3:4?

I was just wondering whether it is safe to run 800MHz RAM at anything higher than that. Say, 840 or 1000 for example. Also, does it matter which brand it is? Will running it at a higher frequency reduce it's lifespan?

Thanks.
The ram I'm using in my sig. has been used at over 1000mhz for the past 2 to 2.5years. This is 1.8volt ram that always has been run at 2volts.

So to everyone who has overclocked their E5200, what FSB : DRAM ratio are you using??
post #1155 of 4653
Stable:
3.833 ghz 12 hour IBT + 2 hr occt stable @ 1.44v bios
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=485692

not stable:
4.2ghz death run @ 1.55
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=487946

my 24/7
default to 3.75 @ 1.39v for 24/7
326*11.5

use whatever you want that 1:1 thing is overrated, it's mainly from the old DDR1 days. just try to get high fsb (300-333 range) and use whatever divider puts your memory within spec. my chip doesn't POST after 340 FSB so that means i couldn't run ddr2 800 even at 1:1!!!! that'd be DDR2 680 and that'd suck. I have my 24/7 326 FSB*11.5 = 3.75ghz, and my memory running at 1088(1066 stock)

just keep in mind it may be possible that some dividers wont work even if they put your memory within spec, that's just the way it is. if you have a good mobo you'll have pleanty of options and will find one that works. Just as an example on DK P35-T2RS my ram doesn't like the 1066 dividers! it crashes whenever I use them. The 800mhz dividers work fine I just oc them to get me to Spec.

I noticed you had your chip clocked at 3.5ghz here is what I'd do with that clock

set FSB to 333 and the cpu multi to 10.5 that'd give you 333*10.5 = 3.5ghz same you have now but you're maxing your fsb for better memory performance. then you would use the 333/800 (5:6) ratio. download the Everest software for benchmarking your memory speeds and try the setting i just showed vs the one you're running now and see if you see any performance increase.

OOOOOK. <deep breath> Hi.

I have joined The Club two weeks back. I gave my X2 4000+ / DFI Infinity / Patriot rig to my Dad, who was to buy a new computer for his work, but we saved money and he's running my old one at stocks. I now got myself a E5200 (SLAY7, Costa Rica, M0), a pair of 1 GB AxeRam Transcend 800+ sticks and an Abit IP-35 mobo. I cool it all with a Scythe Infinity on CPU (Arctic Silver 5 under it), stock mobo radiators on mosfets / NB / SB and an open case, lying open side upwards, so the heat has more than a few ways to spread away from the parts. I got a decent (I think?) PSU, a Chieftec GPS550-AB A unit.

I easily got it to run completely stable (an Orthos all-nighter, a lot of gaming) @3.6 GHz, with 1.360v (1.336 after vdroop), 288 x 12.5. The sticks are now at 4-4-4-10, 2T, @960 MHz with 2.1v in them (I read that they're power hungry and that's soooo true - the supposed D9 Microns - 'Z' series of the sticks - didn't go flawlessly at stock CL4 @ 800 with 1.8v, but after bumping volts it was nice. The next step is at about 1150 MHz and I don't think they'll do it without 2.3 / 2.4 volts. That's maybe too much, for them, isn't it?

What I have set now is about as much volts I'd like to pump into the parts. I'm running at stock NB and VTT voltages, bumping them didn't allow me to go upwards. I can get 3.75 GHz and even 4.0 GHz bootable, but Orthos fails instantly and I'm not into suicide runs.

Please tell me if there's anything more I can do to push the CPU or RAM further? How should I treat them to get more juice out of them? How much can be gained for a gaming rig by upping the PCI-e from 100 MHz to about 110 or 115?

My temps are 34-38C in idle, 58-65 in stress. Isn't that a bit much? Those are OK values, I'm using the latest RealTemp and CoreTemps and they agree on core temperature measurement.

vtt should be half your ram + 0.3volts at max, so no more than 1.35 iirc. iirc it's your fsb voltage (someone confirm ?). lock the pcie at 100mhz. temps are fine. what does your ram booklet/box say you can volt to ?

loosening the timings allows you to get some more speed out of them. you've also got some more cpu voltage to play with. as long as it idles at no more than 1.37v and in my case, vdroop is positive (goes from 1.360 to 1.372) then you'll be fine for 24/7 usage.

What RAM are you using? 1.8v 800Mhz sounds like the single-sided sticks..
