My first OC. e5200 - Page 2

post #11 of 20
honestly, i would toss speedfan in the trash where it belongs...

go with programs like hwmonitor, cpu-z, coretemp.

i honestly have no idea what speedfan would consider vcore2 to be, unless it is talking about pll voltage, which it does seem a bit high, but on some motherboards you can't change the pll, if you can, i think 1.8 is safe for core2?

Great, I'll look into those progs. As I said, I'm a complete noob I googled vcore2 and it turns out to be the ram voltage. Would 2.02v still be ok?

ddr2? yeah, 1.9 to 2.1 sounds about right for those, and from your sig, you're running a "mix kit" which can be a bit problematic if you tried to shore up the timings to go tighter settings, but 2.0 should be fine, i know the corsair xms2 (had a set) was 1.9, but could handle 2.0 for OC'ing.

Thanks! You people rock! Now I'm completely at ease with my OC Yes, ddr2.
Well, I actually didn't touch the timings. I wouldn't know where to begin.
I checked out your tip about hwmonitor, so here's a screen
Dunno if it's ok or not, but going on what you guys said so far, I guess it will be ok.

looking good so far

timings ugh, don't want to explain, lets just say it allows you to do more, in the same amount of clock cycles it will typically be a settings in "DRAM Timings" or similar (you might need to do ctrl+f1, or similar to "activate" it.) its part of OC'ing ram...if you OC is unstable, but the cpu seems to be rock solid, you will hear people say "loosen your timings", which means raise them, tighten is to lower them...i'm not much of a ram OC'er, so someone with expeirence there would be of more help in explaining the art of RAM OC'ing.

and a suggestion, you want to pay attention to the core temps, not the cpu temps, as the cpu temp measures the temp of the internal air gap between the cores and the IHS (the metal casing that you see as the "cpu") this temp can be significantly less than what the cores are running at...

Nice overclock youve got going on there. I can get my e5200 to 4GHz with just 1.32v and hits a nice 72c on max load. I currently have mine running at 3.7GHz at 1.25v completely rock stable, barely touching 60c. The max voltage recommended for these processors are 1.3625v and the absolute maximum they can handle before seeing major temperature problems is 1.45v.

Im thinking you may come into problems with a FSB over 300 due to you having a mixed memory kit. you could increase your multiplier to 12.5 and that will get you safely to 3.32Ghz without affecting memory clocks.

EDIT- Btw great results from HWmonitor and Speedfan. Temperatures and voltage looks good!

Thanks for the great replies and advice people I just compared hwmonitor with speedfan, under full load with Photoshop and I noticed a huge difference between the core temp readings. Any pointers?
I mean, 44C under full load seems rather low, could something be wrong with the sensors? (when is stop the photoshop action, temp drops straight to 33C)

with that air cooler, and those volts, i would say 44c is correct...i'd worry if it was 50c...

i ran a core2quad with 1.35 volts @ 4.0GHz with a xigamatek darknight, and never peaked above 50c, and the mugen is a good air cooler so you're fine, speedfan is just horrible

ninja edit: also, speedfan could be using a lower tjmax where coretemp is using the correct one, i want to say for the 45nm core2's, the tjmax was 95 or a 100, i don't remember sorry

Thanks Well, actually I decreased the fsb to 266 mhz from the default value. It was 300-something, but I don't exactly remember.
