I switched cpu's (from e7200 to e5200) thinking the e5200 would be easier to oc to 4ghz with its 12.5 mult, but I hit a wall at the same spot as with the e7200 @ 3.6! I can't get p95 stable with it @ 3.6. I'm trying to get to at least 3.8 stable. This is my BIOS settings right now:

mult 12.5
fsb 288
pciE auto
fsb strap to nb auto
dram 577
7 7 7 18 timings
vcore 1.36
gtl auto
pll auto
fsb term volt auto
dram 1.8v
nb 1.4v
sb 1.2v
pciE sata auto

I'm thinking I might need to get rid of some of the ram. Not sure where to set nb, fsb strap, etc. Thanks!

I have an E5200 on a P43 board. All the motherboard voltages, and all the CPU voltages (except vcore) are at stock. 330 x 11.5 = 3795. My vcore had to jump from 1.32 to 1.38 to make the jump from 3.66 to where I am now.

I wouldn't think a 288 fsb would need a voltage bump, but I guess it couldn't hurt. What's your RAM's rated speed? I myself would leave it at or below stock and overclock it later. You really won't see much of a performance increase anyway.

Set your FSB strap to 333, fiddle with the divider until you're at or below stock, and while you're at it, set your PCI express to 100 just for good measure.

Bumped up fsb term v. Ran 12 hours with prime95 perfect. I shut off p95 and restarted, but pc wouldn't post. Reset cmos and will start again later this afternoon.
