Having Trouble hitting 3.6+

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my whole case cooling with 1 120 in front and 1 80 in drive bay. Speenfan and everest both say my cpu temp is at 34-36 degrees C. When i try to pust 3.6 or higher, even at below 40, my system freezes or crashes. Do i need more cooling? Bad temp readings? Bad cpu?
I have also tried to play with my vcore but im scared or going past 1.45

Right now im at 3.55 1.40v, and other suggestions?

ECS are not by any means a decent board for high end overclocking. You have an excellent CPU and should easily make 4.02GHz with a motherboard such as ASUS P5AD2-E Premium. It's like buying low end speakers for a high end amplifier. If you keep the low end speakers a a low volume they will sound "ok" but raise the volume and you immediately hear the quality loss.

You will also need a better cooler than a stock release.

Your CPU should be able to go higher.
Have you locked your PCI/PCIe frequencies to 33.3MHz/100MHz ? If not then please lock them to their respective values stated above.

Also, if this doesn't work you can try to up your vcore a notch but I mean just by 0.025 (example if it's 1.4V now then only up it to 1.425V). Whatever you do don't exceed 1.525V on your CPU.

Keep an eye on your CPU temps at all times (and especially when/if you increase the vcore) ! Don't exceed 65C under load.
Better to keep it below 60C if you can.

so changing my mobo means i have to reinstall windows rite? CAn you guys give me freq/voltage ratios that i should try?
post #5 of 9
With the board I mentioned you will very likely not have to change anything other than the fsb. Moving it to 266 will move your ratio to 1066 which is spec for that processor architecture. I have done this with three different 630's and all made the move easily.

You could perform a "Repair" on your Windows XP installation but I personally would do a fresh install. What is your heatsink/fan assembly? Stock?

My wife's 630 and my MCE 630 both use the Zalman 7700cnps CU. It keeps both of these processors at 44C idle and 57 load. You have the very same RAM (it seems) that both these systems use.

Is that easy to put in? Will i have to remove the motherboard from the case?

nope you wont depending how much space you have i just installed mine yesterday quite happy with it so far although it is huge so i would check to make sure your gonna have enough room for the 120mm fan plus about 1-2 inches or clearance to ensure the hs fits and isisnt touching anything
