New guy here, I'm also new to overclocking. I just recently bought myself a E5200, and it works like a charm, but I knew I could get more out of it. So here is what I got so far...

3.313GHz
Stock Fan
Stock vCore (1.2v)
50oC
2x2GB RAM
ASUS P5GC-MX/1333
265Mhz FSB, 12.5x

Unfortunately, I'm not at my computer, so I can't get any more information until I get back on my computer. I don't know how to change the voltages in my BIOS as of yet, but right now, everything is stable. I'll post pictures and such when I get back on my computer.

You could get quite a bit more by simply raising the vcore a bit if you're just looking for a reasonable 24/7 overclock.
If you're shooting for a really high overclock on this chip, such as 3.6GHz and up, there are a few other factors that come into play. Since you are using the stock cooler, such a boost may be out of reach.

The 50c temp you mentioned, is that under some sort of load testing? If so, which program did you use and for how long?

By the way, not bad so far. Especially if you're new to overclocking.
Welcome!

Welcome!
The 50c temp wasn't from a load test. I tried load-testing with OCCTPT, with the temperatures reaching around 60c. However after like 10 minutes or so, the screen went black. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that, and I wasn't monitoring it, playing on PSP. I can't find the vCore voltage adjustment settings in the BIOS, so until I find it, I can't really go any further with it.

and Thanks for the welcome.

I've been checkin' out your motherboard manual.
In the advanced section of your bios, when you go into the JumperFree Configuration, and set the AI Overclock to 'Manual', is there not a vcore adjustment option there? If not, what options do you have at that point? This is where voltage adjustments should be on Asus board.

Like I said before. The closer you get to 1300QDR the harder it will be to get the board to play nice. The next NB strap starts at 1301. Try that.

The same thing happens when you get close to 1600.

At this point, I can only change the CPU Frequency, the DRAM Settings, and the PCI Express Settings. I'm starting to think I need to update my BIOS. Its currently at BIOS 0405

EDIT: Updated the BIOS to 0407, and I still can't access it.

EDIT 2: My Mobo is a revision E3363, If that helps any (The manual at least)

Hey everyone, have always been a keen reader of helpful tech forums, but I must say nowhere will you find such an epic e5200 thread.

It has been immensely helpful, and this has been my first time both building a computer, and overclocking. Its been a steep learning curve, straight outta the box i went for a 250fsb boost to get me too 3.1, anything after that I did not have a clue, it wouldn't boot or post at all, I realised after a long time that I had the option of changing the ram dividers, being a first time overclocker, I didnt have a clue.

Long story short, I found all the settings and set about overclocking, my first successful encounter was 3.5 stable at 1.36volts this was 335 x 10.5. The temperatures were low, and stable under Prime95 and OCCT, and I set about hunting for the 3.8 barrier. I was fearful of using higher voltages, but after reading that 1.45 was the highest, I had some headroom, and managed to hit my current stable and best of 3.8GHZ. I have reached 3.9 and 4.0 GHZ in windows but not prime stable unfortunately.

Sorry about the story, its been an amazing adventure into the world of overclocking, and this thread was great fun to read. I'm such a geek! Thought it would be overly complicated but actually with patience and perhaps because the e5200 is such a great overclocker, its been fairly easy.

One question however is in my bios I have my current cpu on 1.4 volts. But CPU-Z reports from 1.360-1.344volts. Is this what they call vdroop? Does that mean I have more headroom to overclock in the bios? I am currently stable, 3 hours of Prime95, will do a proper 8hour run when I have time.

Anyway bit of a long first post! Any help appreciated.

I haven't been on here in a while . Busy with school and family.


Any way i bought some ocz 1066 that needs rma. but I just wanted to show off my old ocz ram ddr800.

This stuff was like 35 or 40$ for 2x2GB.

Its rated speed and timings are 400mhz 5-5-5-18

and its doing 444mhz @ 4-5-4-12.

The lowest pi i ever ran with these stick is 13.366. Cant wait to see what the 1066 will do when i get it back.

Then it's not the board. You can run 1333 with default NB and SB voltages. Once you get around 1400 you will need to start adding NB volts. When you get to around 1500 you will need to start adding SB volts. I've built and OC'd 4 comps with the P6N Diamond board. The only reason I don't have one now is due to the fact that I never could find a vdroop mod and the lack of 45nm support. <----opps, maybe it is the board.
