    Exclamation Gigabyte G41M-ES2L // OC help?

    Hi, this is my first time OC'ing and I am having a bit of trouble. I have a Intel E6300 Pentium Dual-core (2.8ghz stock) and can not seem to get it past 3.1 ghz. I have my multiplier at 10.5, FSB at 295, and Vcore seems weird to me. When I increased the vcore from the stock to 1.36 I was still unable to increase the FSB from 295 (stably). Also CPU-Z says my vcore is in fact at 1.3... it was also lower than what it was suppose to be at stock vcore (sorry don't remember what it was exactly. My temperatures are about 38 C idle and around 60 C under load. I have seen people get 3.5ghz easily out of this cpu and when asking for help at Overclock.net I was referred to this website as one person thinks it may be the motherboard. Also, I have 450w PSU and XP 64-bit. Any help greatly appreciated

    Sorry we let you wait.
    Vcore has very little to do with FSB speed. MCH Core has, but I already see you don't have it in BIOS. Press Ctrl+F1 in the main BIOS screen, the screen should then flash, enter MIT and see if there are more options there then before.
    Limited OC motherboard/chpset as the other guy said, be prepared for disappointments.

    Fill your signature with your system specs, a link to your memory page or at least part number.
    Fill the folowing template with your settings (siggested, those to the left, and set)
    It's just a template, ignore the values in it, and replace them with your own. Post it bacj wraped with code tags (click the # icon in post editor and paste.)
    We'll see what can be done.
    Code:
    Motherboard: Model, Rev#:
    Cpu: Model
    Ram: Brand, Model/Part#, Link to your ram's specs
    Power Supply Unit: Brand, Model#, Wattage
    
    Default settings for new setups that are not overclocked.
    
    note: replace all ?? with the value displayed in your bios.

    Just in case, I found a review of someone who OC'ed the same processor on the same motherboard to 3.6ghz...

    You should delete them so we know which you have and which not.
    Did you try Ctrl+F1?

    Ctrl+F1 didn't make no change then, but I am sure I saw CPU Reference in the board manual.

    When you overclock FSB and leave memory multiplier on auto the memory gets overclocked too, select the multiplier that gives the rated memory speed or lower.
    Try 333FSB with x9 CPU Clock Ratio and 2.40B memory multiplier, then if it works try to increase CPU ration.
    Set CPU Vcore/Termination to their default value, and raise VCore if needed. CPU Reference can be left auto.
    Set PCI-E frequency to 100.
    DRAM Voltage needs to be 2.0v for these timings, check BIOS HWMonitor to see what is it set for with auto.
    Could you post a screen capture of MemSet main and SPD window (click spd) before you make changes?
    Keep an eye on CPU temperatures with RealTem/CoreTemp.
