This is my first try OC'ing.
I can't seem to get core speed pass 266 MHz. Anything above 266 MHz pc would restart itself when run ORTHOS stress test.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
LL

What all have you tried so far? I'm assuming you followed a guide. Can you link which one you used to get your settings?

Edit: Just trying to get an idea on what you might be doing wrong. It's strange that it won't oc at all.

Here is what I started with.

Multiplier - 9
FSB - 333
Vcore - 1.4
Vmch - 1.5
vDimm - 1.9(Ratio 1:1, winds up being 666, Timings 5-5-5-12)
vFSB - 1.3
PCIE - 101
PCI - 33.3

Chipset Configuration in BIOS:
after in chipset configuration override.

Default setting:
Host Burn-in Mode Type <Positive>
Host Burn-in Mode Percentage [0] -------> change this to [11]
PCI Burn-in Mode <Default>
PCI Express Burn-in Mode <Default>
MCH Voltage Override <Default>--------> change to [1.650v]
Front Side Bus Voltage Override <Default>-----> change to [1.333v]

This all is see in the BIOS.

Memory Configuration

SDRAM Control <Automatic>
Memory Frequency <667 MHz>
tCL <5>
tRCD <5>
tRP <5>
tRASmin <15>
Memory Voltage <Automatic>


Memory configuration was all on default.

If you leave your RAM all default, you'll eventually run into problams. Much like you have now. As you increase the FSB for your processor, you're also increasing the speed at which your RAM operates at. Easy way to solve this, is either select a frequency one or two steps below it's norm(I.E. instead of 667, try 533 or even 400), or increase the voltage for your memory.

Try this dude.

400 x 9

Mem timings - 4-4-4-12, 2.1v

Memory at 1:1. Choose the 800 mhz option

Disable all the settings, i.e C1E, Vanderpool, etc

CPU Vcore - 1.45v

Put all the other voltage settings up one notch apart from FSB Termination, put that up two notches.

He's using the same cooler as me. I'm not sure if he'll want to use 400x9 with the Z9500. At least not for anything long term.

I thought the Zalman CNPS9500 was a fairly good cooler.

Anyway, he could try 400 x 8 for 3200mhz with 1.35-1.4v

Try 350 x 9

I have no experience with your mobo but it might not be that great an overclocker.

I'm not sure what the maximum FSB attainable on that mobo is.

I suggest you do a bit of googling to find out what the max is, it will help you get the best out of it

You need to take out the jumper, while the battery is out...

How long did you take the battery out for?

I take it out for 3 minutes or so, but it may be different with that board......

Just unplug you rig from any current, take out the battery, and, move the jumper from the two pins it was in first place, to the next pin, so that it connects the middle pin, with the pin that usually is not connected. That should "short circuit" your mobo, and reset everything.

I took out the jumper, and the battery is out for 5 min.
When plug jumper and batt. in it give three long beeps...... which mean memory error--------> 1280Hz. I don't know what that mean but this is what is says on the manual.

Let me try to disconnect the main power to the board see what happen.

If that doesn't work try booting with just 1 stick of ram. And see if your problem could just be faulty ram. That might have been the reason you couldn't oc at all.

Didn't boot with either single stick of ram? i'm assuming you brought the 2x 2gig for the 4gb right? I don't know what else to suggest. Sorry Saul
