Can't stablize OC for E5200 :(

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

Seems that no matter what I do, it get the BSOD.

I have done the basic of
10.5x265 FSB
1.31v(approx)

This gives me 3.31 Ghz. I run orthos for a little while (over 30 minutes, i know its not enough) and it seems pretty stable.

However, I run 3dmark 2006 and within a few minutes I have a blue screen of death (Irq_less_than...something).

Is what I put ok for starters? Is it because i have crappy RAM and it isn't keeping up?

I know there is a super thread on the E5200 already, I justdidn't want to highjack it and waste other peoples time....


At this time I have:
Gigabyte DS3L Motherboard
E5200 CPU
2 GB Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/2G Ram (i know, this was a bad choice)
Antec Earthwatts 650 PS
Antec three hundred Tower
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
Sapphire 4580 toxic

Thanks for any help..I would love to get it to 3.5 Ghz if possible in the end...


Thanks,

Al

Set a divider so your RAM will run at stock speeds, or at least slower than it is. I am almost 100% positive that it's a RAM issue. Also, that is way more than enough volts for that speed.

Update: with the settings I mentionned above, I ran Orthos for over 6 hours stable, no errors. CORRECTION: I ran it without stress testing RAM. I just ram Prime and in 3 minutes (blend test) it crashed my computer with Memory Management BSOD

Regarding the dividing the Ram...i'm sorry, i don't know how to do that. I see you have the same basic config as me...due to my slow RAM, what do you recommend (and whats the setting called in the bios?).

Regarding the Voltage, I lower it down? the default it 2.50000...i bring it to somehting like 2.8?

Thanks,
Al

your ram is probably dead/degraded if you ran 2.8v through it, thats an entire volt over ddr2 spec....

First welcome to OCN

Ok i will assume that you have a p35 ds3l. This mobo is very easy to oc with. I always start with the max safe vcore and then adjust down once I reach the oc i want. So here is what i would try
Then increase the bus by 10-20 at a time till it is unstable.

Vcore 1.365 - I think this is max for 45nm
Bus 266
multi 10
vdimm as rated
ram divider 2.0

Try this and see.

As for the ram divider on giga boards it is very easy to figure out. Take your bus speed and multiply it by the ram setting 200*2=400mhz 333*2.6=1066mhz

Also make sure you are using coretemp or something to make sure your not to hot. I like 60c or less. Try this program for stability test too.

I have looked in the bios for the ram divider part. Is it the mch freqency latch? Or the one right after it (can't remember what it is and i'm not home right now..sigh)

i'm using speedfan for the core temp. It was stable for a certain time with your config above (minus the ram divider part) but ended up bsod with a IRQ_Not_Less_or_equal . I ran prime95 for 3 hours...went well, but then i started Vuze and crashed.... NOte: during this time, temp was at 45-48 stable.

Note: I have an EP45, not 35...

Thanks,
Al

In the gigabyte bios the memory divider is "System Memory Multiplier (SPD)". Then below it will be the actual ram speed listed as "Memory Frequency (MHz)".

Cool, thanks! I remember that when I was playing with it before, I set the SPD to 3A (which gave me from 667 --> 800Mhz). Since I would have a fsb of 266, my RAM is 667 (meaning 333 right?) that would give me 865.8 to put in the SPD (333*2.6, I don't understand why Mr. stroker got 1066,sorry for being slow). Note however that i can only put it to either 800 or over 1 Ghz (being 4A instead of 3a)

Am i getting it, or only getting more confused?

Thanks,
Al
