First time OC'ing E7400 + biostar tp45e

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 




I have a E7400 and a biostar tp45e. I set the bios to auto OC V12

cpuid says my multiplier is only x6.0 it should be x10.5. but i cant find how to change this in bios.

Also cpuid says my corespeed is 1700MHz is that per core? if so then im running at 3.4GHz and 37c.... that seems extremely low for a stock intel fan?!?

I'm sure I'm just missunderstanding something... cause i'm useing auto over clock

I like your wallpaper lol. Baby on the way? anyways, no its for all the cores.. it seems you are running 1.7GHz. I would turn off the auto OC and do it manually. Sometimes motherboards will confuse things and auto OC can sometimes downclock. Im not sure biostar's auto OC'ing is much good. Let's do it manually. That processor will do 4.0 easily. In the bios under performance settings or advanced configuration or something along those lines you will see a page where you can change the multiplier.. Set it to the highest.. always do this with 775 for locked multiplier CPU's (Non extremes) and move the FSB up accordingly. Manually set your vcore up a little bit and depending on your memory and how many dimms you have filled you may need to up your chipset voltages too. Also be sure to set your memory voltages to manufacturers specs or higher if oc'ing the memory too. Once you have done this watch your temps and do some prime95 stability testing and see if you have a good stable OC. Hope any of this helps.

Also, it sounded like you are using stock cooling. Maybe keep it somewhat lower than 4.0. You will in fact have heat issues. Dont get me wrong you can still overclock just not as much. With overclocking keep the memory synced and make sure you find an FSB setting that will keep your memory where you want it (Assuming stock). Also if you set your cpu to stock (or OC) from your low 1.7GHz your temps will be a little higher than 37c lol.

awesome! thank you so much! I didn't want to jump into the manual OC blind. While i was waiting for a reply i hit the XS Bench button on realtemp and i noticed that cpuid jumped upto x10.5 and 2999.0MHz.... apparently my cpu throttles way down when not under load??

And yes we're having a baby in april ... as you can tell my wife has a odd since of humor :/

Haha good to hear. Yeah im getting married in June lol. We both have something going down lol. Hopefully you get some good oc's out of the e7400. I see you are new to the forum? If I helped out in anyway at all lol. Im also new to OCN.. Good luck my friend Oh yes and to answer that question.. Most boards do throttle down when not under load but you can change that in the bios. Most overclockers turn off that throttling on idle feature. Its one of those green features. I never enable them as i'm overclocked 24/7 lol and watercooling. In your case with the stock cooler you may increase the lifespan of your equipment leaving it enabled. Just a suggestion
