E7500 Overclock Issue.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hello im new to the forums so hi hi ! and now to my issue..
i have a C2D E7500 that im trying to overclock to 3.6ghz with 400x9
i have a ASUS P5N-E SLI Motherboard with the latest bios, ive went by MANY guides on how to do it and it just will not work..i set the FSB to 1600(400mhz) and my Multi to 9 vcore from 1.3-1.45 tested all the ranges of vcore (not higher cause i don't wanna burn it up) ive tried to up the NB to around 1.3-1.4 when running orthos it will like lag and stutter (i played a video in the background to get the system going harder cause i was getting random freezes on OC) right now im using the boards default settings of 1066 fsb, im not trying to get 4ghz or more just wanted 1600fsb at 3.6ghz..

any help?

Verify that you lower your memory speed. Either by unlink mode or a 1:1 ratio with your FSB.

lower my memory speed? you mean like 1600fsb and 800mhz ram...lower the speed of the 800 to like 700ish? kinda confused
post #4 of 10
keep your ram unlinked or low ratio yes so you can rule out your ram as an instability to start with... and I would say maybe go to 1.5 on the nb with 1600fsb im sure it needs it

the nb voltage settings are kinda odd...it goes from like 1.39 to 1.6 no in between
post #6 of 10
hmm well I think it should handle 1.6v no problem, watch the temps with that passive heat sink though it will heat up quickly... if you have to increase airflow in case or strap a fan to the nb

well the case i have it a coolermast haf 932 and i have 3x220mm fans 1x180mm 120mm on bottem so i dont think it should overheat to much, max it gets now is like 30c
post #8 of 10
then yes you shouldnt have no problem raising it to 1.6, but still make sure and watch the temp, mine is the same way during idle but can shoot +40 degrees during load easily, as long as you stay under 70c on nb full load Id say your safe

running orthos 20 mins into the overclock 400*9 1.4v vcore and 1.6v nb vcore seems to go up and down from 1.4 to 1.360v seems to be running fine didn't crash during a 7 min video (usually freezes and has a ear piercing sound that im STILL recovering from -.-)

bout to try TF2 see if it locks up like it has in the past..
SO another question is can this ram Corsair Gaming Memory 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz or CGM2X2G800 can overclock to 1000mhz? i have 2 sticks

yeah the 1.4 vcore drops while under load, this is called vdroop, when your cpu is idling it will sit closer to the volts you have set in bios. When you put your cpu under full load it will pull the voltage down by about .03-.07 depending so while your testing for stability you have to compensate for that

so in short if you wanted to run at 1.4 under load which would allow for higher clocks your setting in bios would need to be anywhere from 1.43-1.5 depending on how high your clock/and how bad your mb's vdroop is
