Problems with A8N-e overclocking settings in bios

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i have an Asus A8N-e with a venice 3200+ cpu. Ofcourse i want to get that thing running at its absolute max .
I have had an a7n8x deluxe with a 2700+ thourougbred and i managed to oc pretty well.

Now to the problem i have, becuase i have very good rams, gskill 4400 2.5-3-3-7 timings at that speed, its logical that i want to get mem running faster then 200 mhz. There are 2 menus where the overclocking takes place, the dram submenu in the cpu menu and the jumprefree setting menu. Now imo a succesfull overclock requires both menus to be altered but when i change one menu the other one jumps back to auto, and i really dont get it.

Thx for your help in advance Phil

Welcome to the Forum

I would suggest having a look at the A8N FAQ, altough for the Deluxe model the Asus OC principles should be the same... have a read through it and the screen shots - link in my Sig.

yeah i was reading the faq as you where writing, wanted to fill in my sys thingys when i was finished overclocking it. If i understood the faq correct when you rais the fsb in the jumperfree menu it will raise the mem speed with it, at least thats what i thought you mean with that divider thing.

And thx for welcoming me.

With the A64, rasing the CPU speed will increase the memory speed as the mem controller (IMC) is onboard the CPU.

Suggest that you set MaxMem to DDR333 or lower, this will pace the memory on a divider and then OC the CPU, bringing the Memory back inlne once that max is found.

In JumperFree set things manually as the Asus Auto will trip you up.. plus when you thing you have set the various screens up.. go back and recheck them as sometimes a setting in one screen can set another back to Auto .. the Asus way but once you get your head around it, it becomes very quick.

Well my rams can handle speeds up to 275 mhz with still quit good latency timings, So no need for a divider.

Edit: I have my cpu now running at 2500 mhz thats 10x 250 with 1:1 on rams. Im gonna let prim95 test it for 12 hours when it doesnt show any errors im gonna try to get cpu up even more. after that im gonna tune the latency settings.

Excellent ... test it out and then keep on going up

Once you find the CPU limit, then work on the memory and start to use the dividers (MaxMem) settings to max out both...

Good Luck.
