@ glussier

i noticed that we both have the same MB, and i was hoping if it wasnt too much work, if you could explain to me a couple things in the bios and what i should be setting them too.

-DRAM static read control
-DRAM read training
-mem oc. charger
-Ai Clock Twister
-Ai Transaction Booster
-CPU spread spectrum
-PCIE spread spectrum
-load line calibration

and should i be changing my
NB and SB voltage?

sorry in advance for all the questions, but i read the manual and it doesnt really help it will say like "-load line calibration- this is how you calibrate your load line" that kinda wording doesnt help lol thanks

Dram static Read control & AI transaction booster

These 2 options can improve memory performance. However, I have found that when both options are enabled, the chances are that the computer won't boot. For me, the best performance is when Dram static Read control is set to Enabled and AI transaction booster is set to Auto


Dram read traning

It is supposed to improve memory read performance, however, I leave this option to "disabled" for better ram stability.


Mem oc. charger

I leave that to enable, improves memory overclocking hability without impeding on performance.

AI clock twister

Improves secondary memory timings performance.
I set that to Strong. [b]Stronger[b] causes problem while overclocking.

AI transaction booster

Set to Emable, sets an higher performance level.

NB voltage

I set that to 1.28, the highest safe level.

[b]SB voltage[b]

No reason to play with this voltage.

Load line calibration

When set to "Enabled", prevents or limit vdrop and vdroop. I set this to "Enabled" while overclocking.

gahh i got it to 3.6, but im having stability problems. i was able to get 3.4 stable at 1.32 vcore but im still not stable at 3.6 and im at 1.4 vcore, is there anything else i can do to get this a little more stable? temp really isnt an issue as i still only hit 50c just for a sec then went back down to 47c. but its still seems like its just really high voltage for only 200 mhz more.

If you could do 3.4 stable at 1.32, I don't think you need 1.4 for 3.6ghz. What test are you trying do? You might have a ram problem, until you find what is your maximum cpu overclock, you should make sure that your ram is working at an equal or lower frequency than it's rating, also leave the ram timings to auto for now.

im doing occt. but it would not even get into windows at first, so i had to keep bumping up the vcore untill it would let me into windows and then actually run the test. i did 2 hours of occt at 3.4 and i havnt changed anything else. my ram is running at 864, so i guess it is slightly over clocked. could this be why? but it seems weird that it wouldnt let me into windows, like would rest at loading screen, so i had to up the vcore to get it into windows. I kept doing that untill it would let me run the test.

when i put the timing at auto, it times it wrong sssoo lol should i still do it?

using prime95 for several hours is indeed not an assurance for stability... ive run my E5200 @ 3.0ghz for 12 hrs on prime95 and so far its stable... but suddenly when i was just playing nba 2k9 and alt tabbing to my browser to update the rosters my computer hang up then i hard booted it then my e5200 was reset back to stock speed.. hence 3 wasnt stable..

You need to run it at a Prime at a higher priority level so it stresses your cpu more. Most people run a couple different tests. OCCT is another one as well as Intel Burn.

To change the priority level in Prime click on the test menu option and click on worker windows from there you can change the priority level I would put it at an 8 or 9 and watch your pc cry.

Also is your ram Overclocked? That could be causing the stability issues as well.

If the bios can't assign the proper ram timing, you should set the proper timings manually. You ram should be kept at 800mhz or below. If the overclock proves stable, then it will be time to improve your ram performance.

After some more testing with my E5200 it seems 3.8Ghz isn't stable at 1.36v ( ran prime for 3 nights, it failed each time after 6+ hours, intelburntest passed 50 runs) . But 1.37V does the trick !

My E5200 is better now after some time so i guess is can call this the burn-in effect ! I'll be priming at 3.8Ghz 1.4V for a week ( when not gaming, 22hours a day or so), lets hope i can get 4Ghz with less then 1.49V when i'm done!




I bought a S-Flex 1600 RPM for my true because ppl say it's silent and high cfm, but i think it's quite loud. It's the only noisy component i have atm and i find it a bit annoying. (motherboard on my desk on its box). Are the Noctua fans any better ?
