Let the memory frequency start out at 667, u will see it increase as you overclock.

also keep the e6300's multi at 7, its not unlocked so you can't overclock it that way.

you are overclocking via the frontside bus which starts out at 266 times 7 which is the stock speed of 1.86 GHZ. you can move the 266 to almost 400 on some boards, just move up slowly from 266, 276,286 etc to see what is stable.

also this might help you

Oh ok I did that same thing mine looks very similar except my memory multiplier says 2.5 and the following line is 860mhz not 1000mhz. I brought it up from a lower one as I tested. I didn't just guess this OC.

All my voltages however say normal or manual with none being increased or decreased.

And i have already tested prime stable.

My question more pertained to if I was better to try and run at a more standard ram speed such as 800mhz vs 860mhz or with a multi of 2 vs 2.5 for performance sake.

the main thing is to move the memory multiplier down so it says 667 MHZ starting out from 1.86 stock. You see that picture that says memory frequency 1000, urs needs to say 667 starting out.

no performance hit is taking place. u will be able to hit 850 again as you keep increasing the FSB from say 266 to 400. it moves up from 667 to 680, 710, etc. when u move beyond 266.

so 667 is ok??

But my question is why drop the mem back down and raise the fsb and thus the CPU speed if my target was a 2.4 and the mem is already there.

Guess that is where my question lies. Since I already did the whole set the mem bring the FSB up then bring the mem up to speed. Am I making a major gain over current position with the increased FSB over the potential heat increase and need for more voltage that could arise?

because you can get a higher overclock that way, say 3 GHZ and still have ur ram at 850 MHZ by lowering the memory and raising the fsb. you are downclocking ram at first so you have more headroom for the fsb to reach higher. Its complicated to explain and hopefully someone else can explain it.


also there won't be any heat issues as you have a good cpu cooler already

Oh I gotcha on that and I understand trying to have headroom and all that and how high fsb=greater ultimate speed and all. Just my goal never really was to get that high on this. I want something that wont be quite as sluggish as it was at 1.86, will last a couple years as a daily use machine. Pushing hard and high limits the lifespan. I got the cooler due to the one i had not keeping it cool enough to feel comfortable with the lifespan.

I guess I phrased my initial questioning wrong and caused the confusion. Sorry about that. Should have asked more along the lines of: for settings like this what would be better or what might I adjust?

your not really limiting the lifespan that much as long as u don't overvolt it to say 1.45 or 1.5.

I would say overclocking it to 2.8 GHZ would be a good start as it probably can operate at 1.365 volts

Sounds doable and then I could just run the ram at 1:1 for 800mhz speed.

And i guess a little extra speed won't hurt;)

BTW what about the RAM timings is it worth dealing with those the bios seemed to show 5-5-5-12 but CPU-Z showed otherwise.

only way i know of changing the ram timings from what the bios does is with memset. I have a board similiar to urs and i cant change the timing of the ram at all just the divider from 2.5 to 2 just as yours but it only acts up if i push higher then what my 800mhz set of ram can handle since i have a mixed set of ram frown.gif

Well I am probably not going to mess with that much. I played a little bit with the the OC today and on stock voltage got the FSB up to 400 with a multiplier of 7. I dropped the divider to 2 so now i am running back a 800mhz and the default pc-6400 settings. Cas shows 5-5-5-12

Did 15 min stable in prime on blend, then 15 on large fft and now i am over an hour stable at small fft now.

Temps on full load are 46 and 43 degrees at about 20c(68f) ambient.
