I'm aiming for 4ghz atm, will edit this post when I get it

EDIT: This is where I got to tonight, to tired to keep mucking around. This is with everything on the lowest in the bios (not auto) ecept for the cpu which is on +12.0 because auto keept making the vcore rise.

i recently swapped up for a new cpu, the intel e5200, i was able to OC it to 4.0ghz (320x12.5) at 1.43volts to the cpu. ram is at 4:5ram ratio, 800mhz.

temperatures under Prime95 is 61c to 67c.

what does everyone think? is it safe to keep it running under such conditions? is the voltage to the cpu too high? or the temperature?

i believe i can push it more but idk if that is advisable? intel lists the thermal temp at being 74c, and while i am no expert, i am sure i should keep below 74c? how much further below , temperature wise?

how much voltage from the default voltage could someone overclock before its dangerous? even if the temperature is cool?



p/s of misc info:
-mobo: abit ip35 pro
-ram: 2gb (2x1) ram of crucial ballistix ddr800 (6400) at 4:5ratio with 555-18 timings. i believe it is running at 800mhz
-OCZ 600watt psu with 80% eff. rating.

also is a difference of 5c between the two cores during idle acceptable? under benching the temperatures are the same. i have reapplied the thermal grease a couple of times now.

keep it exactly as it is, everything is fine.

Hello e5200 gurus...

First let me just say, I am very impressed with the numbers you guys have put up. Quite impressive. Since you guys seem to know how to push this CPU to just before burnout, let me pick your brains. I know in 300 or so pages this has probably been covered but it's 300 pages... Please excuse me.

I'm going to try to break this down into logical parts.

My Goal: To get my E5200 to run at a 1066 FSB.
Secondary Goal: Keep the chip at 3.3ghz but this is not necessary. Even if I have to step it back a little bit but can still run the FSB at 1066, I'd be happy.

The Gear I have:

CPU: E5200 2.5ghz (you know the specs better than me)
Cooling: Stock Intel HSF I am willing to swap this out but I'll need advice on good aftermarket HSFs.
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-EP43-UD3L Pretty nice board based on the reviews and the little I know. Can run 800-1600 (OC) FSB.
Memory: G.Skill 2x2gb DDR2 1066. If I can save money by OCing, I might bump this up to 8gb.

Two extra ram modules will cost me ~$50 and a HSF isn't too expensive, right? I figure I'd still be below the cost of a new CPU.

Where I am now:

Everything is running at stock except for a few things. I've changed my RAM's voltage and timing to the recommended. In my case, it's 6-6-6-18 and 2.0v

I also have the Intel Step down power saving stuff disabled. My machine runs at 2.5ghz always.

This is a screen grab of Real Temp 3 and CPU-Z. This isn't under any load or anything. Just average use. Couple of programs open... I think those are pretty decent temps.

Attachment 116809

The environment: It's Summer here and the room gets stuffy and hot. Whenever I'm here, I have the AC running and I don't really leave my computer running when I'm not home and the AC is off.

During the winter, it gets cold here. Shivering cold. I rarely use the heat. I don't think ambient temps will play a big role in the OCing but you guys are the experts and I'm the one begging for help so you can decide.

What I've tried so far and the catastrophe that ensued:

1. Set the PCI-E Frequency from Auto to 100
2. Set the Memory Multiplier SPD to 4.00A
3. Enabled CPU Host and set it to 266
4. Changed the CPU Termination to 1.3v
5. Changed the MCH Cor to 1.20v

What happened was I got to the post screen, it didn't load all the way and then the computer shut off and then tried to restart.

So folks, what do you think? Remember I'm an absolute noob at this so please take it easy. If you need any more info, please ask.

Thank you for your time,

TFB

It looks rather good. You should get away with 1.2v Termination, but increase Vcore, lets say, start with 1.3v on that.

Thank you for your response.

I have two follow up questions since messing with the vcore scares me.

I know Intel says 1.3xxx is the highest it can go. Is that with stock cooling or is that the highest they recommend under all circumstances?

Thank you.

I guess that was only one question :/ Never post half asleep.

Reduce your memory multiplier to 2.00A, and then increase your FSB to 300. You will see far more benefit from overclocking the CPU than you will from running your RAM at 1066. An E5200 at 3.5GHz and 600 RAM will blow away an E5200 at 2.5GHz and 1066 RAM. Just my $.02. You can always increase the RAM speed a bit later on.

That's not what I really want to do though. Even if it is, I wouldn't know how.

Basically I just want 3.3ghz at 1066.
