Asrock Dual Sata & 4000+ San Diego OC help!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, first of all I want you to know that I'm a complete noob to this overclocking thing.

I've read a good few threads and tried some different settings in bios but
everytime I try to reboot my system won't boot up so I have to reset cmos.

I'm using the official bios version 1.50, I haven't done the v-core mod or anything else in particular. I was thinking that maybe my psu could be at fault here, its a crappy jeantech 450W.

Any help getting this system overclocked would be appreciated, thanks!

That PSU may not be limiting you yet, depending on how hard you are planning to overclock, you may want to get a new one.

Learn the meaning of some of the basic settings, and what they look like in your bios....after that you can take these numbers and input them 2.8

FSB = 255
CPU multi = 11
Vcore = 1.5-1.55v
HTT x 4
Memory divider 166 (333) 5:4
Memory voltage 2.6-2.7v

The max v-core I could get is 1.45 with bios version 1.5. I didn't do the v-core mod.

I tried changing the cpu frequency to 220 and left the multiplier at 12, d-ram voltage to high and OC mode to Async. Everything else I left at auto and with these settings my system is stable but my ram is not running at max.

Then I tried upping the cpu frequency to 230 and left the other settings the way they were and my system was not stable at all, it kept rebooting.
Is there any other settings I have to change in order to get it stable?

If you've not already been through this guide, then I'd recommend it: http://www.overclock.net/overclock.p...king-guide.htm
What it will do is find your boards max value, your CPU and your Ram and then you can work on it from there. One thing though, I doubt your board will have the LDT voltage, so I'd ignore that bit unless you find it

Thanks Ste, I've read the faq and I think I did everything right.

I lowered the multiplier to 9X and cpu frequency to 200, system booted fine.
Then I raised cpu frequency to 210, all fine as well.
However when i raised it to 220 my system wouldn't boot, it hung on black screen with my graphic card type written on screen, so I pressed the reset button and my multiplier went back to 12X and it booted up fine.

I don't understand one thing, the pci bus is set at 100, what should I set this to? The faq says to always make sure your PCI bus speed isn’t too high before you SAVE and exit your BIOS.

Thanks

I'd keep the PCI at 100Mhz for now. It sounds like it's your Ram that's limiting you if you set your CPU Multi to 9. CPU speed is the most important aspect, compared to ram speed. Look for the divider/memclock settings in your bios and reduce this to something low like 1/2 or 100, however your bios is setup. This will lower your memory speed and allow you to find the max of your CPU. When you've found this, work on bringing your ram speed up as much as possible.

Thanks again Ste,

my bios has three options for memory, 133,166 and 200. I've set it to 133.
Now my pc boots at 9X 235, 240 won't post. Do you think it could be my memory?
