Can not get an overclock at all

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just spent several hours following the guide and such.. I cannot get OC'd past 2.3 Ghz. I set my FSP at 210 with the multi at 11. My HTT is set down to 4 and my vcore is at 1.4. I set a divider on my ram at 166, and left the timings at default. Anything past that and I get auto reboot. Anyone got some advice?

What are the default RAM timings? It seems the RAM is the problem -- is it all the exact same modules?

Try setting your HTT to 3 and see how high your FSB can go.

RAM timings are 2.5-3-3-7 .. Its this ram here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220037

its 4 sticks of 512 all of the same stuff above in dual channel

Another thing is, now that I've set everything back to default for now, on CPU Z my voltage is showing me at ~ 2.5 vcore.. eh that's not good eh?

Have you set the ram command to 2T? And cpu-z must be doing a wrong reading... what does it say in the bios?

I just tried setting my multi to 3 and found the max FSB to 280.

I had set my multi to 5 to test my FSB, it was ~1300mhz. I ran a few tests and whatnot for 20 minutes or so and no errors.. but I don't imagine I would downclocked that far.

#1 four sticks of ram require a 2T setting
#2 you have value ram, which many times doesn't ran faster than 215mhz, and 4 sticks of ram always run slower than 2 sticks, so you are most likely close to maxing your ram. You'll get a better overclock if you take two sticks out. Otherwise, you'll have to run a divider
#3 you should bump your vcore up one notch
