Thread: GA31M-ES2L<-- Is this OC able?

    Default Re: GA31M-ES2L<-- Is this OC able?

    Hey guys, got home early this morning and decided to install the e7500,etc and have hit a problem....Restored to optimized defaults and booted up fine at 2.93ghz.
    Ran some base tests.

    Rebooted into bios, upped FSB to 333x11, started with 1.30v and now I get a blank screen and blinking cursor at reboot in the top left of the screen. Got it to boot back into bios once but wouldn't let me select any options. Am I screwed?

    EDIT: Finally got around the blinking screen of death lol....took quite a power offs to get bios to reset itself and then proceed again...strange! My worst fear was a bad partition but even running a PCI of 106 with the old cpu shouldn't have done it so quickly. BTW, I'm running a PCI of 100 currently to see how far I can go.

    Ok, here's the stock optimized setting tests and with BIOS voltage at 1.35v, PCI=100 and 333FSB (3.66ghz):


    333FSB

    I don't like your board.
    The reference I have is LinX with 1536MB runs, I didn't run IBT, or at least did not log them.
    Code:
    FSB	FSB %+	CPU	CPU %	LinX1536	LinX %	Temp
    266	base	2933	base	19.8315		base
    333	25.19	3330	13.64	22.5079		13.50	+
    417	56.77	3336	13.74	22.5113		13.51	+34
    425	59.77	3400	15.92	22.9357		15.65	+35
    444	66.92	3552	21.23	23.9872		20.96	+
    463	74.06	3704	26.29	24.8092		25.1	+46
    448	68.42	3808	29.73	25.4793		28.48	+50.5
    450	69.17	3825	30.41	25.5703		28.93	+51
    I think ir was LinX 0.6.4 with the original LINPACK libraries.
    There is only one CPU-Z Validation that I have saved, I believe more vcore needed to be perfectly stable. Vcore in CPU-Z is under load.
    Set memory timings and tRD as before

    Yeah it looks like 333FSB/3.66ghz is the limit for PCI of 100. I have booted into Windows at 3.85ghz at max voltage (1.3875 in Bios/1.36v idle in CPUZ) with PCI=105 but failed after 2 passes with gflops around 22.8.

    I'm tempted to find a 45 series Gigabyte board to go a little further.

    3.825 is about as high as it goes stable, and you need about 1.39v vcore at CPU-Z I think.
    Try 344MHz and set vcore to 1.4v and see how that goes.
    Don't buy a p45 board, it's a waist of money IMO unless you can find a real cheap one.

    I have tested my E7200 at close conditions (can't do nothing to lower memory writes).
    With better timings and tRD GFlops were about 0.2 higher, so I'd say first goal is 23GFlops at least at 3.66GHz.

    Yeah, I was saving timings for last but I did notice that Maxxmem showed a worse score the higher I went w/the e7500 without adjusting memory. With the 7200, I got down to 72-74 but w/the 7500 and 3.66ghz, I'm around 86 lol...

    Here's 3.74ghz at 340FSB and I believe around PCI=103, anything less and it crashes:

    That was with 4-4-4-12 timings and I don't know what tRD.

    EDIT: what is vcore in CPU-Z under load?

    CPU-Z vcore is 1.36v idle and 1.328-1.344v under load during IBT testing....

    This is with relaxed timings since it will crash with tighter timings right now...currently at 5-5-5-15 with a tRD of 9. Lower settings=kaboom!

    Made 3 passes at 3.78ghz (344FSBx11) around 22.9gflops but crashed after that w/the above mentioned timings and voltage. I think I've gone about as far as I can with this budget board...so right now, can only make 3 IBT passes at 344FSB and nearly max voltage before crashing.

    Can you post full settings? 4-4-4-12 did work before. do you have a save BIOS profile you can refer to?

    Current settings at 344FSB (3.78ghz) as follows:

    Robust Graphics Booster___________ [Auto]
    CPU Clock Ratio ____________ [11]
    Fine Clock Ratio ____________[N/A]
    CPU Host Clock Control_ [Enabled]
    CPU Host Frequency (MHz)__________ [344]
    PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [105]
    C.I.A. 2__________________________ [N/A]
    System Memory Multiplier (SPD)____ [2.0]
    DRAM Timing Selectable_______ SPD __ [Manual] 688mhz

    Performance Enhance = [Standard]

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

    ACT to ACT Delay (tRRD)_________ Auto 3
    Rank Write to READ Delay________ Auto 5
    Write to Precharge Delay_________ Auto 7
    Refresh to ACT Delay______________ Auto 54
    Read to Precharge Delay__________ Auto 5
    Static tRead Value_______________ Auto 9
    Static tRead Phase Adjust________ [Auto]

    System Voltage Control____ [Manual]
    DDR2 OverVoltage Control__ [+0.2v]
    FSB OverVoltage Control___ [+0.1v]
    CPU Voltage Control_______ [Manual]
    CPU Voltage______________1.3875v

    I had timings tightened more earlier with lower FSB but loosened things to try and push the FSB higher. I'm looking through my P'bucket pics but I think it took 106PCI to get above 342FSB even with the 7200....
