My first overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Thread Starter 
That little thing is awesome. Thanks a lot dude!
So it is indeed a Prescott.
Can someone guide me as to how I proceed from now on?

I seroiusly wish I could help you further, but I only know the basics of overclocking, and I've only done it on my AMD system. I can find you some good FAQs and guides though. Hold on, BRB lol. It's easier to link you to the FAQs than explain myself. If you have any specific questions though, ask and we will help.

*EDIT* Here are the guide's and FAQs:

Overclocking for Intel
RAM timings - This one may be a bit confusing, but in the long run it will help you better understand once you learn more.
Overclocking Acronyms - Not definitions, but should help you understand a bit better if you're confused what "CAS" or "vcore" is

PS - Feel free to +rep me lol. I hate to ask but rep is starting to become like a sort of money to me (or cocaine haha)

OK guys I think I good use some advice now.

I have reached almost 3.2GHz with vcore 1.424 and temp at idle ~52C (which btw will shoot right up to 60-62 within a minute if the CPU works at 100%).
My FSBRAM is 4:5 which I can't figure out what to do with it. I have read the all the guides but I still can't say if this is "bad" or could be better performance wise:withstupi
The FSB is 177.
Let me know what information you also need for that.

Oh and Speedfan seems to have one measured temp which is all over the place each time I reboot. It was 55C now it's -4C! I could have short circuit something..

I would use a better heatsink/fan unit to help cool down that Prescott.

If you are not comfortable with removing the motherboard then a Zalman CNPS7000cu will do the trick and will install in five minutes. Buy some arctic silver thermal paste and clean the processor, apply a rice sized piece of it in the middle of the Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS) and install the sink/fan.

Run CPU-Z and tell us what stepping that Prescott is please. If it is a D(0) then it will run pretty hot no matter what and if it is an E(0) then it will handle the heat transfer better.

Thanks Ropey. The stepping is 1, revision E0.
How about the memory?
It's at 221.3MHz and the timing is 2.5-3-3-7 according to CPU-Z.

Monkey;

I have the same Motherboard as you, the same DRAM, the same Proccessor, and I can reccommend you to buy a Big Typhoon + AS5 combination pronto! It will help you on the long run and make overclocking on air a great experience.

I think having your CPU/RAM Ratio running at 4:5 would be better, as Taeric told me in a post I had. I see it great that you went past 160-MHz without problem on 4:3, a feat I cannot do. I have to run my DRAM at 1:1 for it to process effectively and become stable!

Regarding your overclock, I would download Prime95 and run it on a Torture Rest to see your *true* load temperature. If anything is above 60C, I would slowly decrease the External Clock Speed to achieve a better temperature.

I wish you all luck, and I will be slowly watching your progress! Good luck!

Rather than change the divider I would download an ISO from Memtest.org

http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

and burn the ISO to CD. Then reboot and set the boot to the CD. Memtest will immediately boot and begin to run. It will test your system's memory at that fsb speed. If you run two full tests without error then your dram can take that speed.

I agree that it is good ram if value based dram to make it to that fsb. There is no use just dropping the divider if the dram will perform at that speed stabily though. As a general rule of thumb the divider is necessary as most value dram will not come close to that speed or timing.

What is the make and model of your dram?

It is an Elixir PC3200DDR400. It was the cheapest one in the store. I 'm surprised it's that good.

Edit: Oh and I didn't mesh with the timing at all.
