    Default GA-EP45-DS3L & E8600 overclocking help please

    Hello


    I am trying to overclock the GA-EP45-DS3L with E8600 and I would like to hit what is suppose to be easy 4.0ghz on stock voltage ........... maybe stock is not the answer?

    Ram = Corsair Dominator PC8500 >>> 2 x 2 gig sticks
    Newegg.com - CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory


    so far I have tried

    disable EIST and the C1 option

    set CPU Host freq to 400

    memory SPD = 2.0

    +.03volts on the ram

    stock voltage

    Ram settings are left at auto / unchanged


    the system ran orthos stable for 45 minutes at 4.0ghz before it stopped ........... could you give me some ideas of what needs to be tweaked


    thanks for any help you have offer ............


    best regards

    joe

    Here is what I am thinking of trying next ................... am I in the right pew ???????
    MB Intelligent Tweaker(M.I.T.)
    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio (Note)____________ [10] <<<----CPU Multiplier
    This should be set to your processors highest multiplier, for now.
    List of...icroprocessors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The option will display "Locked" and read only if the CPU ratio is not changeable.
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [400] <<<----FSB Speed (Front Side Buss)
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [102]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00]
    This is a 1:1 divider, memory speed will be 2x FSB.
    Memory Frequency (Mhz) 800
    Your actual memory operating speed is always show above.
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]
    Serial Presence Detect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    CAS Latency Time_____________ 5 ____ [5] <--use your rams values, (CL)
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay______ 5 ____ [5] <--use your rams values (tRCD)
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_____5 ____ [5] <--use your rams values (tRP)
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)________15 ____[15] <--use your rams values (tRAS)
    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_______4 _____[auto]
    Rank Write to READ Delay______3 _____[auto]
    Write to Precharge Delay______6 _____[auto]
    Refresh to ACT Delay________42 ______[0]
    Read to Precharge Delay_______4 _____[auto]
    Memory Performance Enhance__________ [Normal]
    This setting tells the BIOS to look at your memory for the existence of an EPP
    (Enhanced Performance Profile) stored in your memories SPD chip.
    I have confirmed this works, if the memory has EPPs, and improves performance. Leave set to Normal for now.
    Serial Presence Detect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Welcome to Corsair :: Sorry, Page Not Found
    High Speed DRAM DLL Settings________ [Option 1]

    ******** System Voltage NOT Optimized ******** <<---IGNORE This.
    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V] <-- default is 1.8V, 1.8 + 0.3V = 2.1V set this to add up to your ram's voltage requirement.
    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.1V] <--- a little extra for stability
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.22] <--- very mild overvoltage so we can start playing soon SEE WARNING BELOW !
    DANGER - Intel spec for Vcore absolute maximum is 1.55V. The BIOS will let you set a ridiculous high voltage, be careful. !!
    Normal CPU Vcore 1.3250V

    this one has been stable for over 2 hours / temps of under 50C with core temp monitor & orthos


    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Fast]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [10]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[0.0]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [400]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [Disabled]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.00]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual]

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

    CAS Latency Time________________ 5
    Dram RAS# to CAS# Delay_________ 5
    Dram RAS# Precharge Delay_______5
    Precharge Delay (tRAS)__________ 15

    Set to all highest below, and then lower later one by one testing with Memtest86+ as you go >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ 3-4
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ 3-5
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ 4-6
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ 46-50 (52-62)
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ 2 (3-6)
    Static tRead Value_______________7-10
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto] << Always Leave

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.300V] = 2.1V (( Check your ram's sticker and set accordingly. If it is 2.1, after you are all setup and tested to be stable you can try 2.0

    PCI-E OverVoltage Control_ [+0.1V] << For stability
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1V] << For stability
    (G)MCH OverVoltage Control [+0.2V- 0.3V] << Needed for 2x2GB
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [1.22] << you may need more or less, as stated above


    ALL these below:

    Limit CPUID Max. to 3.....................: [Disabled]
    No-Execute Memory Protect............: [Enabled]
    CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)................: [Disabled]
    C2/C2E State Support....................: [Disabled]
    x C4/C4E State Support..................: [Disabled]
    CPU Thermal Monitor 2(TM2) ...........: [Enabled]
    CPU EIST Function.........................: [Disabled]
    Virtualization Technology................: [Disabled] Enabled if you use Vmware/Virtual PC

    Integrated Peripherals
    Legacy USB Storage Detect___________________[Disabled] *Note* Must be enabled to flash from USB


    do you see any thing that needs to be changed ?????? if I want to shoot for 4.2 ghz what settings might need altering ?
