Hello guys.
One month ago I overclocked this CPU, but yesterday I noticed that the temperature is too high because of [Auto] Voltage so I returned it as default (only the voltage) and it was running cool then I made it 3.1Ghz and again low temperature and 1.134 V (I mean temperature like original one)
Then I tryed 3.2 Ghz and it didn't started (stoped on windows boot screen) .... and I returned default settings...and that was my mistake cause now I cannot increase it O.O
It stays 2.5 Ghz no matter what I do.... I think first time i did it, I enabled (or disabled) something to make it increase, but I am not sure.
So my question is why the hell it don't want to increase.

Thank you in advance

I've got the same board as you with an e5300, and I am able to run at 4ghz... mess with it a bit and read around on the forums, you should be able to get a pleasing overclock without much trouble.

Check it out. It's helped me OC my E1200 from 1.6Ghz Stock to 2.8Ghz OC stable.

So I make it that way:
RGB - [Auto]
CPU Clock Ratio - 12x [+0.5] (my maximum)
CPU Host Clock Control - [Enabled]
CPU Host Frequency - [250 (+50) then 240 (+40)]
CPU Frequency - [first time 3.12Ghz / 2nd 3.00Ghz]
PCI Express Frequency Multiplier - [Auto]

FSB OverVoltage Control - [+0.2] or 3 I dont remember
CPU Voltage Control - [1.3460]
Normal CPU Vcore - [1.656]

Then I run it and it's still 2.5 Ghz
BTW When I enter BIOS again the settigs are same I mean nothing everything is Enabled and made how it should be.

Hmmm, not sure what's going on there
Never seen multiplier issue like that before.

As a side note, I've read it's good to set your PCIe frequency to 100mhz instead of auto.

EDIT: There is some function maybe that the bios has that allows the CPU to run at half multiplier... I forget what it's called but someone else here probably knows what I am talking about, and you should turn it off.

Ah. That's why.
Go to BIOS and go to Advanced BIOS Features.
Then Disable - CPU Enchanced Halt & CPU EIST Function

Then bang. No more Speed Step. Your processor will stick at your OC settings.

Do you have the latest BIOS version?
That could also be it. I had like v4 and it kept reverting me back to stock clocks. Then I updated it to I think v6 and it fixed my problem.

Ah. Looks like F4 is the highest for your board.

I'm guessing my board GA-EP35-DS3L is a bit different. It shouldn't be too different for the BIOS settings that I sent you in the link.

I wonder if there is something wrong with the CPU now.
I know when I kept my BIOS setting to Auto Voltage it was reading 1.55 in Windows and that was WAY too high.

Yeah I noticed that (around 70 - 90 .....) but it runs fine without overclock O.O I mean normaly so I dont think it's something with CPU

I doubt it will work. There must be a difference between the two boards. What that is exactly, I don't know.
