Hey guys i got my self a new Main board and CPU the other day . I am starting to over clock now . I am getting to 2.5 ok so far temps hitting about 45c when running orthos as a stress test. It locks up at about 4 min into the test. I am thinking that the voltage might not be enough . The BIOS is stating that the Normal voltage is 1.31250 V the next option i can go to is 1.31875v then 1.32500v. I am think that these jumps are a tad hi. I am used to OC AMD CPUS . Am i just being over concious.

check the link in my sig for the e6320..I had to use 1.34vcore for 2.8ghz to be stable...thats not a lot at all..Intel spec is 1.35v max. Hell, I run 1.52-1.58vcore on my e6700..its fine, as long as you keep it cool.

Heres my orthos, to compare..10min.

yea bump up your vcore, mine is running at 1.475 at 3.4ghz, orthos fully stable and temps are barely 40c loaded.

i'm only running a 1.28vcore to run 2.975GHz on an e6320, and it's as stable as they come.

44c on intel oem box fan, after close to 8 minutes of full load



it's what i leave it on all day. maybe i just got a freak, but you won't hear me complaining


<edit> i can run it at 3.15GHz stable with the voltages you are running at 2.8GHz, and at 1.37v runs at 3.237GHz

sounds like another setting is to blame. For now, leave your vcore and your cpu speed alone.

List your mobo settings, for your oc, please.

Currently settings are for 2.8 :

CPU host Freq : 400 MHZ
Sys Mem Multy (SPD): 2.00
Ram 800mhz (for divider)
CPU V 1.3500

Can take a picture if thats easyer

1. what kind of RAM do you have?

2. Those overvolting options...whats 'behind' them?

3. Your cpu vcore is set to 1.35, but drooping to 1.31, which is probably too low, I bet you adjusting the 'cpu overvolting' will cure the vcore droop.

0.1 isnt 0.01.
