Shunsuke_01, you would probably be safe to raise your vcore to 1.45v as the max you try instead of 1.36v.

yeah, what he said ^^^


To me, I see that as having more potential. Doing more with less volts. Have a little more room to increase the volts if you get stuck. I'm sad that my chip is 1.25v. I only have .2v for "safe" playing room.

I think I might just go back to using 360fsb x 8 mult. If im only going to get 3 or so outta this chip, its probably better to go with the highest fsb i can, even if I loose .2ghz doin it.


Or maybe yet, I will find out what crazy voltage it would take to sustain 3.5-4ghz and wait till the chip dies, tell everyone how long the life span is, and buy a new one. :-p
My VID is 1.225v. I have a FSB wall of ~310. I think you need to keep trying. I believe you can get a 3.5-3.6Ghz stable with under 1.4v. try giving at least 1.3v FSB/VTT voltage. Once you get above 3Ghz these chips seem to want more FSB/VTT voltage.

What are your temps? CPU load and ambient? Please include currant vcore,NB,SB and FSB/VTT settings.

I know, but at 1.36V my temps are creeping towards 74. I guess it's because I'm stuck with the stock cooler for now.

Edit: And I'm stable at 3.16GHz (333x9.5) for over 2½ hours in Prime95 (small FFTs) with only 1.28V so I'm happy with that.

CPU temp ambient: 25C
CPU Core temps ambient: 40C

CPU temp full load (prime 95): 57C
CPU Core temps full load (prime 95): 72C

Core Voltage idle (from cpuz): 1.408V
Core Voltage Load (from cpuz): 1.392V
Core Voltage (as set in bios): 1.45V
VCore according to PC Health in bios: 1.428V

As far as northbridge, southbridge, and vtt, my motherboard does not show them. The ep43's do, but my ep35 does not. (Bios is the latest beta one f6a

instead I have to guess a bit (here is what I do have):

ddr2 overvoltage control: +0.4v
FSB Overvoltage control +0.2v
(G)MCH Overvoltage control +0.2v

Settings right now are 333 x 10. Voltage is only set like it is because I was trying settings again. Haven't lowered the voltage yet to see where it should really be set yet. So its probably a bit high. This is usually the highest I get with this chip and am stable (haven't p95'd for a day yet. just decided to try this).

edit: temps in screenshot are going to seem all over the place from what I wrote above. The window is open now, so temp 2 in speedfan is only 18C. (Temp 2 is my actual cpu temp.) Coretemp is more accurate for the core temperatures, so i read those from there. Speedfan is 5C too high.

Run everest and see if you can get your FSB/VTT voltage. I'm guessing it's set low and holding you back.

Try and hold off on your vcore for now. If you can run that high FSB and low multi and have it stable, start there and try raising multi in 1/2 steps. I think you said your max FSb was 360, if so run just below that like 340-350 and start stepping up slowly.

Also, have you disabled spread sectrum?

I'm also kinda wondering if my temps could be lower. I'm using a Zalman cooler, but didn't see any significant temp change when I switched to it. I ended up using that white glue they call a thermal grease. Maybe I could re-do it with some AS5 from a friend in class.

K. will try that tonight. I don't plan on going to bed anytime soon today (1:13am here).

Spread spectrum? Didn't see that in the bios. I'll remember to find that (if I can).

PizzaMan, I suppose you know a lot about NVIDIA cards so how much would I have to overclock my E5200 to avoid or minimise bottlenecking on my 9800GTX+? My current settings improve its performance a lot, and more than higher clocks with lower FSBs.

Edit: For example, my custom Far Cry 2 benchmark rises from ~40FPS (2.5GHz, 200x12.5) to ~56FPS (3.16GHz, 333x9.5). I don't really have the time for more bencharking right now, but would I see much more performace increase at 3.3GHz+?

Yea, you'll see that card open up as you OC the CPU more.
