Where has my E5200 OC gone wrong?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I've read this thread here but I can't emulate anywhere near it:
http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...ng-thread.html

My system specs are in the signature. I am now waiting for my Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus cooler to come.

The highest I get so far with the stock cooler is a FSB of 233 (multiplier 12.5) at 2.9 ghz. However when I checked CPU-Z/EasyTune6 (which came with gigabyte the multiplier is fluctuating from x6 to x12.5. I think there is some intel software/some gigabyte software meddling in this. Everything else in the bios (including the voltage has been placed to auto). DRAM settings were changed from turbo to standard.

I only changed the FSB in the bios but it looks like the Memory has changed to 932 MHz. Is this normal? I just want a decent OC system so that it goes slightly faster as I use the computer 18 hours/day. Someone said that an E5200 could go 3.5ghz on stock cooler. I can't see mine getting more than 3 ghz. Gigabyte has this ET6 software with Smart settings ranging from disable to Full Thrust. I can't get anything more than "sports". I've disable this setting now. Here is what I done:






Can anyone point out what is the problem here? I think I have the correct RAM and ample air cooling for it. Is the stock cooler to blame for the problem?

3.5GHz on stock cooler is not likely. Just sayin'.

The fluctuation is called Speedstep or C1E. It's not a problem, but some people disable it because they can theoretically overclock higher with it off. I leave it on because I like running cool when I'm just browsing.

You should overclock in the BIOS. This way you have complete control. If you don't know what that is, search around here for a guide. There are tons of people here with your chip, your board, and both.

Your RAM will change speeds when you change the FSB. In your BIOS, there is a RAM multiplier that can adjust the ratio between the FSB and your memory speed. It's likely that your overclock is limited by your RAM at the moment. Make your RAM run a bit slower and you may be able to push the FSB.

Again, look for some overclocking guides on here.

Changing FSB also changes the Ram speed. Yeah if you think you dont need any speed fluctuations just disable EIST.

Thanks. I noticed that. I have one question. If I increase the FSB and decrease the RAM voltage will I see a difference compared to stock settings? Since in stock conditions ram has a higher voltage

Why would you decrease the ram voltage? Keep it where it is.

What I meant was if you increase FSB voltage- he RAM voltage increases automatically with it-so that is why you decrease the ram voltage

There should be a place to set RAM voltage. Find it, find your stock RAM voltage, and set it there. Lock it down.

Then, until your CPU overclock is fine, use your multipliers (think they're "MCH strap" or "bootstrap" to keep your RAM speed below it's stock speed/timings.

Once you've got an acceptable CPU overclock, then work on raising the RAM to it's stock settings/wherever you want to clock it. This makes for less trouble when you're looking for "what went wrong."
Why upgrade?

Thanks for the feedback.

Is there a real world difference between a Q9450 and an OC E5200? Should I stick to the E5200 or go for the Q9450 and sell off the E5200?
