    Default DS3L + E7200 + CAS6 ram

    Hey there everyone, first noob post so go easy....

    Just got myself a P35 DS3L + E7200 (9.5 multi)

    also some value Dane-Elec Elenade 2x2GB ram. (CAS6)

    i was gonna get better stuff but this is an intermediate upgrade really as funds are tight but my old socket 478 system was getting painful!

    now, I'm gonna overclock, but expect nothing from the ram being as it was so cheap, I'm thinking a 1:1 divider + 400fsb to run the ram at its standard settings, yet get a cpu boost from 2.53ghz to 3.8

    I'm running stock at the mo with +0.2 MCH, +0.1ddr2, +0.1 fsb and 1.25 vcore

    have set trfc to 52 as advised by 'lsdmeasap' in a few past threads as well as the added northbridge voltage.

    before i overclock though, i need to set the memory timings, yet can't find any for CAS6

    would 6-6-6-18 be safe + conservative @400fsb, since i'm only gonna run this stuff at it's recommended speed anyway?

    performance enhance set to standard


    many thanks!

    Dylan

    Possibly, but with any overclock you should slowly build up to your target speed, checking with memtest and checking your CPU temperatures along the way.

    So did you find the memory settings? They are in MIT section of the BIOS, you will not be able to adjust them until you enable the Bold setting below >>>
    DRAM Timing Selectable ................: [Manual]

    And just have to say it, WOW CAS 6 ram? Never heard of such a cheap thing. Time to save up some $$ for sure

    sorry lsd i meant i couldn't physically find a data sheet for the ram

    when i downloaded cpuz, on the memory timings table thingy it said at ddr2800 speeds it would do 5-5-5-18 so thats what i've put in the bios and all seems well!

    i've left refresh to act delay at 52 also.

    with those settings i can run 400*9.5=3.8ghz

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.100V]
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V] - i read on another forum that this setting directly affects the cpu voltage?

    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.2V]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.35]

    was orthos stable for half hour or so like this, max temps in real temp were around 60-62 so i dropped cpu voltage to 1.3 in the bios - after the vdrop in windows + vdroop under load the voltage was reading somethin like 1.264v

    still have to test tonight.

    is 50-60c an ok temp for long term use on air cooling (scythe ninja)

    i was considering dropping MCH but i am running 2x2gb...<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Looks good, And yes that is good temps as well

    Mch maybe can come to .15 if your board will do it, if not you will have to test .1

    glad to hear it - i meant 50-60c orthos load, though thats probably obvious its not idle temp! (32-33)

    will lower MCH if i can, incidentally, what program will read northbridge temps in windows?

    i did put 'FSB OverVoltage Control' to normal/0

    is 'FSB OverVoltage Control' linked to cpu voltage? i get the impression it adds a voltage which may not necessarily be seen via cpuz?

    EasyTune will read it, I think it is System or Motherboard in that. Everest Ultimate will, PC Wizard will as well

    Ya, it does add some but you will be fine with +0.1 for sure

    in that case i think i'll put 'FSB OverVoltage Control' back to +0.1 and see if that allows me to drop cpu voltage any further.

    i have no idea of the northbridge temp at the mo, so need to check that sharpish.

    i replaced the stock ally NB cooler with one of these complete with fan:

    EnzoTech

    and arctic silver ceramique

    what is considered an unsafe temp for the NB chip? same as cpu?

    I like Enzotech, I have a few of their PWM/Mosfet Heatsinks and VGA ram heatinks, Very nice products!

    CPU Temps you want to keep Core Temps under 65-70 +/-

    NB Temps normal is 35-50, anything above that would be considered warm, all In Celsius

    i was quite taking a liking to those 4 pin copper mosfet sinks - make much difference stability wise on the board or not worth worrying about until silly FSB figures?!

    if i can't get voltages low enough for cores to sit at the high 50's i'd probably underclock by 100mhz or so, i read that when getting up to the 4ghz point on air heat output is huge compared to the actual performance gain anyway
