E4500 In A Xfx 750i Overclocking help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
lately i have been having issues playing any games. i get mini video lag shutters and 100% cpu usage. Currently i have overclock my CPU from 2.20 to 3.06.

I read someware that when overclocking if your voltage is not right it can cause this issue soo i would like to go over there settings to see if i should make any changes to hopefully fix this issue.

Processor:
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20GHz (2 CPUs), ~3.1GHz

Memory:
4096MB 2x2GB sticks Corsair XMS2 CM2X2048-6400C5DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-18 @ 400 MHz) (4-4-4-13 @ 270 MHz)

Video Card:
NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450

Motherboard:
XFX 750i SLi

screen shot of what my CPU overclock settings looks like on my MB:

a2x083.jpg

Current Settings
FSB: 1111
Memory: 800
CPU Ratio: 9
CPU V: 0.00
Mem V: 1.9
VTT FSb V: 1.20
NB V: 1.24

Also one last question my RAM states it is 800MHz but it is only clocking out at 397MHz is that normal??

Thanks in Advance

It's not likely this is an OC issue. Sounds more like something is using CPU cycles in the background, like virus scan or malware or who knows what.

Test with OCCT for an hour or prime for 4 if you want to know if your OC is stable. If it passes those, it's not your OC.

DL Everest, and make it log while you play a game. Then look over the log, it will show what processes are stopping/starting, memory being used, GPU/CPU temps etc. That can be a big help.

Ok i will give it a shot and see what comes up after the test. hopefully i figure something out because i miss gaming. its weird thou it is almost every game uses 100% of the CPU and then random black screen flashes and random lag idk whats going on. i just cleaned the computer out 4 days ago cause it was covered in dust. if anyone has any other ideas please let me know.
