Should i overclock more?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm running:
P4 ht 630 3.0 ghz @3.6/ECS 915p-a mb/2 Gb 533 corsiar DDR2 4200/ 450 wt ps on a raidmax case with 80 and 120 mm fans. also i got a airpurifer in back of the case that seems to move a lot of air. lol.


These are my stats:

The sensor on Everest Ultimate says my cpu temp is at 43*C

Cpu core at 1.43 v

I'm new at overclocking and i raised my vcore voltage from 1.38 to 1.43. the temp seems good and there are no problems so far. Also i have another question, my memory timing is at 4-4-4-12. how do i change that should i change that? should i leave my voltage or make it higher or anything? thanks for reading.

I would suggest not rasing the Vcore any higher and not going any higher than your current 240fsb, mostly because I see it's doing 43C, at idle I would guess?

As far as changing the timings, it would depend, if the modules can handle tighter timings they should work fine. Try 4-3-3-8 @ 2.1v-2.3v.

Other than that, it looks good.

A CPU idle of 43C on stock heatsink for a 630 3.0 @ 3.6 is not bad at all. You have a good chip. With a Zalman CNPS 7700cu and running at 4.0GHz I am getting 44C idle and 58 load temps.

What are your load temps? This is much more important than your idle temps.

Is your ram running 1:1 or is it on a divider?

well i think your cpu can go much further, but its the load temps you want to keep an eye on... not idle, u want them to stay under 60c but more like 55-58 load would be best, you can up the vcore more to oc further, and u will have to loosen the timing some i would think aswell, but try and oc with the settings they have, but if you want to stay at your current OC, then try what NASGUL suggested, have you stress tested with prime95 or similar program? if not i would suggest doing so

Ok. once again i am new at overclocking. I know only a couple things and know no thing about what they do. I know how to change the fsb number in cmos from 200 to whatever number i want as long as it boots. I dont know anything about how or why it works. i just know that my ghz goes up. once again i am new. so what is the idle temp and the boot temp and such? the temp that i was looking at was in everest and i was running dual screen, itunes, and mozilla. im not sure if thats idle or not.

There will be a bit of a problem with that motherboard as ECS are known for having poor and very inaccurate CPU temp readouts that fluctuate so you can not be sure where your readings really are at although this might have changed lately.

Download Speedfan from here:

http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Download Prime95 from here:

http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft.htm

Run Prime95 in the blend mode and check your temperatures from speedfan. After Prime95 has been running for ~2 hours you can then post your load temps. If the cpu readout fluctuates very wildly then you can chalk that up the the motherboard. The only way to be certain of your CPU temperature then is via a CPU Thermal Probe.

agreed with ropey.. you may also wanna read through these FAQ's and it will help you with better understanding OC'ing\\

intel guide & another guide
ram 101 & more ram guide

and with speed fan u can compare the temps with everest to see which temp is which, they will all show up as temp1,temp2,temp3...ect in speeed fan. and i think u only need to run prime 95 for a good 10+ minuites to find your max cpu load temp

any more questions please ask us... good luck

I prefer MBM (Mother Board Monitor) for monitoring everything on the mobo--load is just a way of describing your system at extreme work--Prime 95 runs intensive calculations that stress your Memory and CPU so that you can determine whether your system is stable--under load. Idle means like when your PC is just sitting there humming not really crunching any data--games put a load on your PC so monitoring temps while gaming is another way to see how hot your system gets--you need to stay below 65 C to preserve your CPU from damage.

Often the idle temp will be 15-18 C lower than the temps experienced when doing intensive processing.

Rasing your FSB simply increase the number of times per second your CPU processess a set of operations--in your case 3.6 billion per second.

More processing requires more electricity which in turn creates more heat which eventually causes errors due to quantum tunnelling (a CPU is built on such a tiny intricate matrix that excess kinetic energy or heat will actually push electrons out of place--electrical charges are how a processor reads and stroes bits of information--everything is either a charge (1) or no charge (0)--so displacing charges causes errors and eventually crashes the CPU--extreme heat will destroy the delicate matrix irreparably--hence my SIG

I changes my timings to 4-3-3-8 but i dont know what the 2.1v-2.3v thing is. is that the vcore?

No it's the VDIMM--the voltage to your RAM--increasing it slightly may yiled some stability at higher OCs, but at he risk of damaging the DIMMS (or RAM) with heat--voltage=heat
