build o/c help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i believe it shows my build below, but i o/c it out to 4.02 Ghz and for some reason, it would NOT register any of my s-ata ports. as soon as i dropped in down to 3.61 Ghz they registered again. any ideas on possible sollutions? I'd LOVE to run this bad boy full out to get some real benchmarks, so any help would be GREATLY appreciated.confused.gif

please help asap!!!

What are you using for cooling on your CPU, it says 65mm fan, but that is ridiculous. If you are really running a cheap cooler, you really shouldn't be overclocking.

What are you changing to get your overclock?

The asus p5kpl-am mobo comes from factory with and "overclock profile" when i use this profile set at 20% o/c, it still detects everything.
Beyond that, i leave all of the voltage settings to automatic and it is supposed to adjust accordingly for the frequency that i adjust my cpu frequency to.

also, i use an open air case and have 3 fans inside to keep a positive airflow and it has kept everything down to a very reliable temp. I had a simliar setup on an e5300 o/c to 3.3Ghz and it never reached more then 110 degrees f.
this is all an upgrade i recently did and part of it was a bigger cpu fan and added an additional fan.

Temps are as follows:
cpu o/c to 4.02 Ghz: 112 degrees
mobo: 99 degrees
case temp 97 degrees


Looking around in the bios last night, i found something that may be an issue. south bridge only seems to support up to 3.6Ghz @ 800 fsb. o/c to 3.6Ghz shows 1333 fsb. care to explain a little. never had an issue quite like this. . .

What is your cpu cooling?

Overclocking profiles for motherboards really don't work good. they normally cause instability.

65 mm fan sounds like the stock cooler....
At least get the Hyper 212+. For about $30 or less, you get a very good cooler.

And yes, Mobo noob OC are useless. I found that out in the OC genie button that came in my mobo. I just could not keep it stable at all. I just tried it to see how it works.

well, the system is stable all the way up to 4 Ghz as far as im aware of, it just doesnt recognize anything on the south bridge. after a little more snooping in the bios i realized the it no longer recognized hdd, usb slots, sound card, or cdrom drive.


and furthermore, can anyone explain the correlation between cpu speed and fsb?
