Can anybody recommend a good Intel overclocking program? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
After clearing the CMOS, I havent been able to get back into the BIOS and reset it to stock setting.... or does clearing the CMOS supposed to do that for you?

Its basically doing the same lockup that happened when I had it overclocked a little to far, but it wasnt that high... im guessing I didnt have the voltage high enough on the PSU setting for that FSB level?

when u clear the cmos, that clears the bios settings back to stock, all the cmos is, is the little bios chip,and that 3v batter powers it so u dont loose your setting when the pc is off or u loose power... your vcore may be a lttle low, and you memory timings may be too tight for the higher speed, because when u raise the fsb you not only speed up the cpu, but also the ram, try to loosen the timings a littl(higher the number the tighter) and see if that helps any...

Since you have the same CPU type as me Tomasro, would you mind giving me a rundown of what settings to tweak and what a reasonable overclock level for me to reach would be?

That woudl really help! Thanks so much!
well, our systems are similar and different. your cpu runs at 800 mhz fsb, with HT, mine is 533 mhz fsb stock. My multi is a bit higher than yours, because if I push mine to full 800 mhz fsb, I'll hit 4.2 ghz...I doubt I'll get there without water cooling.

I have my cpu running at 3.81 ghz atm, with the fsb at 181.89 (from 133)...and the voltage is set to auto. It probably requires 1.575 to 1.6. If you've got adequete cooling on your proc, 1.6 volts isn't that bad. The higher the voltage, the higher the temps usually.

make sure your ram voltage is also up towards it maximum (2.85-2.95 I'm sure). Mine will take up to 2.9 under warranty.

Your forzen post message looks like it is getting an error before it will boot even. I know you've tried clearing the cmos, but I'd call Abit and have then help you with clearing the cmos. That board is meant to OC really well, so I wouldn't understand why it wouldn't clear. Also, you could PM Wowza, I know he had one of those boards a little while ago...he got his 2.4A up to 4.15 on it with WC.

Depending on your cooling system, you should be able to reach 4.0 with some AS5 and maybe an aftermarket cooler. (fsb at 230) However, this depends a lot on the manufacturing of your proc, the stepping, the revision, etc... Mine is D1 and it gets good results. Make sure your ram is on a divider so that it can take the fsb increase.

If you get a Big Typhoon in there with some good circulation (side case inlet or large case with big intakes), you should be able to hit an fsb of 240-250, which at a 17x multi, would be 4.1 ghz - 4.3 ghz.

IF you go WC setup, probably more like 260 fsb, so 4.5 ghz. But then you've got to start cooling the other parts of the mobo, like the voltage regulators and such (but your active mobo cooling should be adequete).

Good luck with your OC, feel free to PM or IM me

you might also want to look into a new PSU...480 watts for that many HDs, and that big of a proc, OCed, might be a bad thing for your mobo...
