OC road block

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

First post and appreciate all the info this site has.

OCing my 3.0E and have it apparently stable at 3.5 with a 5% vcore increase to keep it breathing. I can go higher voltage-wise but something is stopping me. I am guessing it could be temp (the system will get to BIOS but hangs on windows start up everytime)

Idle temp and load temps are high with or without OC. Anyway this is what I altered in BIOS any help would rock!

Host Freq 200 --> 234
Memory ratio from Auto --> 1.66
cpu voltage +5%
AGP +.1

sounds like your PC2700 memory is holding you back, try running a devider... what are your load temps?

Welcome to the forums!

What are your idle/load temps stock (and overclocked, if you can get them)?


EDIT: Nevermind, saw your first edit.

Temps stock are 43C and 63C
OC are 50C and 67C

And by setting a divider do you mean the ratio between CPU and Mem speed? If so I set mine to keep the memory below 333M and still didnt help. If you mean something else can ya point me along the right path?\\


My voltages stock are 1.4 for CPU and 2.5 for RAM bumped cpu up 5% (gigabyte style of increase)

Well, 67 degrees celcius is way out of whack for anything, stock or overclocked.
Keeping it under about 60* full load at the max is reccomended.

You also might try raising (loosening) your memory timings.

I looked into the memory timings and the only options I could find under Advanced Chipset options in BIOS were 2.0 and 2.5(current). I figured that tightening them wouldnt do so I left them at 2.5 lol.

The temps are truly odd from what I can research but they stay under Intels max working temp so until I can get better cooling (not sure how Ill do that either) i can live with em. Thanks alot for the response.

Basically what I am understanding from your posts is that my RAM is limiting me due to its own speed. Bogus

Your right, Besides interesting temps, memory is really the only other logical thing that could be holding you back. I'd put it back close to stock to save the system's lifespan, and get some better CPU cooling and memory. Or just be happy you've got a working computer.

Mk. Not the answer I was hoping for (This is my first build and Im going bald and broke over it!) Thanks a ton m8!

Guess I get to start shopping for better RAM. The wife will love that one lol.

Just wanted to say thanks again for the help and give you guys an update.

When you said it was the RAM you weren't kidding. For some reason the system would keep hanging/crashing or to spice things up throwing me the BSOD. I cleared CMOS, set the BIOS to its safest defaults rolled back drivers then re-updated em. Nothing was working so I took my single stick of KVR 1G out and chucked in an old pair of 256's from a *cough*Dell*cough* and boom it worked.

Then I applied some more help from this forum and tightened the timing on my RAM from its stock 2.5, 3, 3, 7 and started tweaking the CPU. (backwards when you think your gonna be RAM limited but I am backwards).

Long story longer, here I am with a respectable 20% first OC that actually benched higher in PCMark04 than my last setup with twice the ram could. Runs Prime95 stable as you please and Super PI's in at 39s. Not terrible eh?
