You over clock the front side bus in the bios, just like you have adjusted your voltage and memory divider. If you want 3.3GHz, then set your RAM divider to 2.00A, then make your Front Side Bus 264. Your voltage of 1.3x (whatever you have) should be plenty. Then save/reboot. When you POST/load windows, verify with CPU-Z. Your RAM will be running at 528. You can then test, go back to BIOS, and try different memory dividers to speed up your RAM, though again - being determined to have a particular RAM speed is counter-intuitive. You should want the highest clock speed possible (at whatever temps/voltage you are comfortable with), and then max out your RAM speed based on that.

Okay, I read the link you provided and I'm afraid it has just made me more confused. I'm not sure how to take his results and change it to what I need due to the different motherboard and chip.

Let's go over a list of what I should do.

1. Set PCI-E Frequency to 100
2. Change Memory Multiplier to 2.00A
3. Enable CPU Host and change it to 264
4. Change Vcore to 1.3625V (this is the max that Intel recommends)
5. CPU Termination and MCH Core???

Questions:

On 2. When I get my system stable and my RAM is underclocked, do I want to stay in the A family?

On 3. Why 264 and not 266. I thought the FSB is quad pumped. 1056 vs 1064.

On 4. Is that the max for the chip itself or with the stock cooling? Should I do this in stages or jump in with both feet and just set it to the max for now?

On 5. Leave these on auto? Put them a bit higher and back down? You tell me...

Ummm no. Intel doesn't have a recommended safe voltage. 1.3625v is the highest VID that they will manufacture an e5200. 1.45v is the 'absolute maximum' as sated by Intel. But there is really no max safe voltage. Ever chip is different and it is also important to watch temps.

I do not recommended OCing with stock cooler. If you do, 3.0Ghz would be a good goal. With stock cooler you prbly want even make it to 1.36v before your temps start getting high, but like I said each chip is different. I would suggest spending at least $30 on a decent CPU cooler.

Thanks for the replies.

As I stated in my first post here, I don't know too much about aftermarket HSFs. So, if you don't mind, can we go over a few questions before I purchase one?

1. What is a good brand? Obviously I don't want something that's going to burn out on me after a week.

2. I see some come with a bracket that fits on the back side of the mobo. Is this the way to go? Other than over tightening, anything I have to watch out for?

3. Generally, how much more efficient are aftermarket parts than the stock cooler.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134 $32 free shipping. 3.5-3.6Ghz would be a good goal range with decent case cooling.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003 $37 plus shipping. Would be alittle bit better then the first.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233023
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233029
$45 free shipping. Another step up. Prbly best bang for buck. goal maybe 3.8+ depending on chip.


Just some quick suggestions for 5 min browsing on newegg.

Okay, I just ordered the Dark Knight. I read the reviews and it looks pretty solid. I just hope it fits in my mid size case. The case is 8 inches wide and that translates to 203.2mm. I guess with the riser pegs, my mobo sits around a 1/4in off the case. That brings me down to about 196.85mm -CPU height. I should be okay.

Let me get this puppy installed, do some baseline temp readings and see where we go from there. One person said it dropped his E5200 chip temp down 10C and his stock cooler was around the same temp as mine. So, we'll see.

Thanks for the help. I'll be back in a few days.

good luck with the cooler

Due to a recent move I've had to get a much smaller case, new mobo and new heat sink. What I've got now is a Silverstone SG03 with a Scythe Shukriken on a Asus Maximus II Gene, I've got my E5200 at 3.25 at 1.25vcore (just quick settings to test the temp). Idle the processors hitting 42c and under full load its hitting 65. Do you guys recorn these temps are safe? To much? Or could I push the temp more? What do you recorn would be a safe to run it 24/7?

65C is fine under load, but is high for 1.25v. The Scythe Shurken is not much better then stock cooling. Get a bigger heatsink and you will be drastically lower temps.

I can't put in a bigger heat sink due to the fact I only have 78mm of room to play with which limits my cooler choose drastically, anybody else know of a small heat sink that might work out better?
