E8500 to 4,4? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I don't think an E8500 can ever not bottleneck a 580. I had my E8400 at 4.185Ghz and it was still quite a bottleneck to my GTX560 SOC. A 580 is a beast of a GPU. I just got a better Mobo (UD3R) for my E8400 setup myself, so I'm hoping to get to 4.4Ghz atleast. Although, I don't expect a huge performance increase over 4.185Ghz. Maybe ill be surprised.

OK.
I am happy with a 3.8GHz overclock, because i don't want to use too much time with this, but i cant make it stable, i had the CPU volt on 1,3625, then i tried 1.35, after that i read that someone made it stable with the volt at 1.26875, i tried that. Neither of these worked!

On Prime95 I got fatal error rounding was 0.5, expected less than 0.4 on the two highest voltages. But I got fatal error rounding was 0.4921875, expected less than 0.4 on the lowest, what do i have to do??
1.3625 cannot be a too little amount of voltage, i found out that intel recommended not over 1.36.

So any ideas, this is getting frustrating, due to my ignorance in voltages.

FSB: 400
multiplier: 9,5

Please help!

Good luck in advance.. overclocking and testing the overclock is the most time consuming process you'll ever have on a computer!

the guy in the video has one wicked chip, don't expect the same results from your own cpu


First off, you will need new memory sticks if you plan to overclock much higher than 3.8Ghz. If you multiply your fsb by 2, that will give you your ram speed. 400fsb x 2 = 800 800Mhz is the speed of your ram. Thus don't go too far over 400 fsb else your ram could be the reason for errors.

Try this for 3.8Ghz:
Cpu ratio: 9.5
fsb: 400
fsb strap to nb: 400
dram frequency: 800
dram timing control: manual (5-5-5-18)
cpu voltage 1.3
cpu pll voltage: 1.5
fsb termination: 1.22
dram voltage: 1.8 (this is your memory voltage)
north bridge voltage: 1.26

You should be able to leave all other settings in that screen on auto. If PRIME95 fails, or you get errors trying to boot, or anything that doesn't look right DO NOT change any settings but post the problem here.
Seen too many people changing settings 50 times, then coming back to the same topic with 50 different problems ^^

I dont have any DRAM voltage option on my bois, but there is "memory voltage" option is this the same?

Ah, I see the P5Q has a bit less options in the bios. No worries though

Yes, memory voltage is the same as DRAM voltage. Since you don't have cpu pll voltage, I won't begin to discuss what iit is... rest assure though that it has nothing to do with your videocard.

ok, for 3.8Ghz, change these settings:

FSB Strap to North Bridge..[400]
DRAM Frequency..............[800]
DRAM Timing Control........[Manual]
5-5-5-18 <---you will have to set these manually

------------------------------------------------
CPU Voltage......................[1.29375]
FSB Termination Voltage.....[Auto] <-- check your hardware monitor in the bios what voltage is applied to the NB please. My P5E overvolts it too much if left on auto.
Memory Voltage.................[1.8]
NB Voltage........................[Auto] <-- check this too please



This should work fine for 3.8Ghz. If it's good, we can tweak down a couple settings

OK.
Thank you very much.
I will +rep you!

I will try this later today, i will post later..
How long must i have prime running?

Is it necessary to run it for as much as 8+ hours??
Someone does that.

No problem

Running Prime95: that's really up to you and how long you use your pc. If you run your pc 24/7 then 12-24hours Prime would be the best. If you only use your pc a couple hours a day then 2-4 hour Prime run should be fine.

To start with, after changing the above settings, i'd run Prime for 1 hour. If it passes for 1 hour, let it run for one more hour.

One thing that's important though: check the voltages of your NB and FSb termination if they are both listed in your hardware monitor, BEFORE running Prime95.

Use OCCT default 60 mins to test CPU.

Prime95 Blend or large FFT to test NB/RAM 4-6 hours.
