Okay guys here's the deal; Just built my first rig from scratch...I had previously done mods on "boxed" pc's but nothing like this.

System specs:
mobo:
Brand GIGABYTE
Model GA-EP45-UD3R
Supported CPU
CPU Socket Type LGA 775
CPU Type Quad-core / Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo / Pentium
FSB 1600/1333MHz
Chipsets
North Bridge Intel P45
South Bridge Intel ICH10R
Memory
Number of Memory Slots 4Ã-240pin
Memory Standard DDR2 1366+/1066
Maximum Memory Supported 16GB
Channel Supported Dual Channel

cpu:
Brand Intel
Processors Type Desktop
Series Core 2 Duo
Model BX80571E7400
CPU Socket Type
CPU Socket Type LGA 775
Tech Spec
Core Wolfdale
Multi-Core Dual-Core
Name Core 2 Duo E7400
Operating Frequency 2.8GHz
FSB 1066MHz
L2 Cache 3MB
Manufacturing Tech 45 nm
64 bit Support Yes
Virtualization Technology Support No
Voltage 0.85V - 1.3625V
Thermal Power 65W

case:
Brand RAIDMAX
Series Tornado
Model ATX-238WG
Spec
Type ATX Mid Tower
Color Black
Case Material SECC Steel
With Power Supply No
Power Supply No
Motherboard Compatibility ATX
With Side Panel Window Yes

Tech Spec
Capacity 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Speed DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Cas Latency 7
Timing 7-7-7-20
Voltage 2.0V
Multi-channel Kit Dual Channel Kit
Recommend Use High Performance or Gaming Memory

*Copied directly from the packages*

Everything else is pretty much reused from my old pc. My psu is a 500W Silencer.

Windows 7 sees my cpu running way below the 2.8GHz I want it (expected it) to run at. And in my BIOS the RAM is also way under clocked.

But these BIOS are very confusing. I change one thing and something else will change along with it.

What I am looking for is some help to get my cpu and RAM running at the rated speeds of 2.8GHz and 1066. Not really an overclock but just getting them up to speed I guess.

Sorry for the long post but I wanted to provide as much info as possible.

You should be able to increase your speeds to 3.6 with ease, that is once you get a better heat sink (or you can try and see how hot this thing gets at 3.4). Experiment and see what happens, if it doesn't like it, go and play a little more or set things back to the way you had it.:

hi i will give him the setup for 3.3 -3.4 i have the same every thiong apart from my motherboard is a xfx nvidia 680i lt sli

i start of by going into the bios and change my fsb speed to unlinked
now i put my fsb speed at 1300 . fsb volage @1.3v
your might be different as i cant have 1333 fsb because it drops the mhz on my ram to 791mhz.
i keep cpu multipiler @10.5x i then put the cpu voltage @1.25v
my ram is overclocked already because its sli ready
sometimes you have to set the ram manually my timmings are
4-4-4-12-18-2t
i will post some pictures when i get home but im stable @ 3.4 on stock heatsink /fan i reach temps of 65c max and only sits there for a sec then it drops to 59 c

Thanks guys. I got all this printed out and ready. I am definitely getting a new heat sink and fan; this stock one is kinda crappy. I'm looking for a better one now. I have on older all copper one that is awesome but it won't fit this board.

Rep for everyone...

This site is great.

Thanks again.

Just to let you know, if you can spare the money, go for one that has a sold contact plate that doesn't have Direct Heatpipe Touch. That way you can lap the thing and get a really good seat. Otherwise go for the HDT-s1283 since it is cheap and really awesome performance. You cannot lap it, but you can lap your processor for a better seat. FYI, the shinier and more of a mirror finish you get, the better the seat will be. Also, you need to have a really flat surface to do it on. There are tons of guides on the web on how to lap, but good luck trying to find the sandpaper to do it with...

I was actually looking at this one at newegg:

Scythe SCMNJ-1000 80mm Sleeve ("NINJA MINI" CPU Cooler)

I have a big LED Fan on the side of my case and didn't want to even consider the big version of this. They don't make the full-copper version anymore I guess cause I can't find one.

They also have an all-in-one water cooler that's super cheap:

XIGMATEK AIO-S80DP All-in-one liquid cooling system

But it's not rated for my processor. Not really one for water cooling but figured with an all-in-one there'd be like zero chance of leaks.

Damn that's pretty cool hazycheetah. If anything I'll maybe think of going to like 3.4.... I use this pc for video rendering so I wouldn't want to go too high because it runs at load for about 10-14 hours a day depending on how lazy I'm feeling.

First order of business is a new fan/heat sink for the cpu and getting the pressure inside of my case down. All of my fans are exhaust so I'm getting no push/pull. Need to study up on this.

Okay I have a question:

Looking at what you sent me--below--I would have to go all the way up to 4.00B in the area indicated (System Memory Multiplier) for my RAM clock to go up to 1066... Is that too high?

Right now it shows 800 800 as the setting next to MHz

Also the DRAM Timing Selectable should it be Auto or Manual?

*Here are the exact specs for this RAM from newegg
Kingston HyperX
Model KHX8500AD2K2/4G
Type 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
Tech Spec
Capacity 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Speed DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
Cas Latency 7
Timing 7-7-7-20
Voltage 2.0V
Multi-channel Kit Dual Channel Kit
Recommend Use High Performance or Gaming Memory*

Try those timings to see if they work, if possible, knock them down to 5-5-5-18

No, if it takes to 4.00B to get to 1066 or to get to a 1:1, then that is good. As long as when you go to CPU-z and you get a 1:1 Dram:FSB ratio, your good. Keep your ram in manual and try to get the timings at or below stock (this may take some trial and error, along with some time but is worth it). If it is below stock speeds, that is fine because if it is 1:1, that is where you will get the most stable, highest OC >.> I am still a newb at OC, but this is from what I have learned on my own and asking around. Do not be afraid if you get a BSOD, that is what happens if your PC is OC too high, or some tettings are not right. DO NOT LET YOUR TEMPS GO OVER 70C!!!!! Try to keep them around 65C at a max load. It will insure you will have a proc of some time (that is as long the vcore isn't too high).

And as for you hazy, good OC, but try and see what happens when you do a prime95 blend test overnight (or for at least 2 hours). That will definitely tell you if it is stable.

Pics of my stable OC are attached

i will do that and post asap onlt tested for an 1 hour on ccct will do prime tonight just have one question
i cant get 1/1 ratio on my ram only 3/4 how do i get 1/1 ratio still learning here
