C2D e7200 won't pass 3GHz

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, OCN Community
I'm having troubles with my e7200
I'm currently at 1.25v but my CPU won't even get past 3GHz, System refuses to boot at 3.24GHz@1.275v either
What's the meaning of this? My goal is to at least reach 3.4GHz
My Current clock is 3.06GHz

Bump in some more vcore.



Also, whats your RAM at, and the FSB:RAM ratio? Linked, unlinked?

I got this off CPU-Z
DRAM Frequency 484MHz
FSBRAM 2:3

Does that help?

I'd lower your RAM. Seeing as how its running at like 484 x2 which is 968mhz since its double data rate.

Good! You betcha

I personally try to keep my RAM at its recommended MHZ. Like mine right now is running at 799.1 mhz, but others like to OC their RAM... To each their own I say


Also, what voltage is your RAM set to in the bios. Pretty sure I saw that 2.0v is the standard for your RAM, but the internet will tell you too as well as on the side or your ram module. Just in case you wanna know for sure.

Is your memory at 1:1 now? You want it as low as possible. Also, you should get some 106MHz RAM, DDR2 is dirt cheap now. Your dimms should be able to take at least 2.1v, so that should increase stability if your divider is already 1:1.
