Help me stabilize my OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I got new ram and with it I was able to actually OC this cpu. However, I have hit a wall at 3.6ghz (after tons of research, it appears my board won't go over 3.6ghz w/ my cpu anyways ) so i've got it at 3.6ghz but I can't get it to stabilize.

There's what I have so far. Ram is at 5-5-5-15 2T auto voltage.

Now the biggest problem I have atm, is i'm pretty sure I just need a voltage bump to keep this OC stable. But..... This board either has the worse vdroop ever or i'm doing it wrong. In BIOS I have vcore set to 1.45. But when I get into windows, weird things like my system tray's icon's not showing up and random lag tells me right away this isn't stable. Not to mention, as you can see in the image above, my voltage says it's at 1.36 not 1.45. Should I just keep bumping up my voltage and ignore the vdroop i'm getting or what? As it sits I pass 1 run of intel burn test before I get the instability error, and a crash shortly after. Though I have yet to see a max temp over 64c and right now idle core temp is showing 29c on both cores.

You should probably up you vcore. Alot of these core 2 CPUs can handle as much as 1.55V before you need to worry about extreme cooling. That means you should have a bit of give there.

@Shiveron,

1.45 is way too much VCore voltage.

I ran my E6750 at 3.6 (8x multiplier @450MHz FSB) at 1.375 VCore on my old SE.

I believe you need to increase the CPUVtt to ~1.55V. Also, NB to 1.45V, SB to 1.5V might help.

It would be very helpful if you could post a BIOS template.



EDIT: And yes, the SE is notorious for VDroop. There is a pencil mod you can do, Google it.

/thread. put at 1.55v and passed 10 hours prime95 never going over 60c. All is good now

Now you need to work on getting that VCore down.
