Thread: EP45 DS3 & E8400 overclock

  1. #1

    Default EP45 DS3 & E8400 overclock

    Being used to overclocking AMD processors, my new E8400 has given me a new challenge. I am however having difficulty pushingthis chip with anything above a core frequency of 345, with a 9x multiplier this gives a feeble result. Surely this cant be correct. Every review shows this chip clocks to 4gig and above, so my feeble attempts are rather annoying.

    If anyone can point me in the correct direction (all these new options on this mobo are driving me mad) It would be much appreciated.

    My spec is as followed.

    EP45 DS3 mobo

    Gladiator Heatsink (recommended by the guys at yoytech)
    2gb HyperX PC8500
    1 x Samsung F1 500gb (Boot drive)
    2 x Samsung F1 750gb (Data drives)
    Sapphire HD4870 Graphics card
    Tagan 700w
    LianLi V1200 case (Excellent cooling)
    Windows XP Pro

    Thanks in advance guys

    Please post what settings you are using now and I will advise you, and be sure to update to the latest BIOS. I imagine it is just your voltage choices or ram settings holding you back. This is 2x1GB right? Please post a link to your ram, where you bought it is fine

    This is Just a template I use to ask people their settings, pay no attention to the numbers in it, replace with yours
