    ;) back with an update

    Ran a few 3DMark06 tests and a few Crysis loops.

    Currently at

    Core - 830Mhz (stock volts)
    Mem - 990Mhz (issue at 1000Mhz)

    No artifacts - currently testing 840Mhz core and will bump the mem +5Mhz and try again

    Looking good.

    It may be that a balance of Core to mem clock is needed. An 800MHz core with 4ghz RAM may be possible for example. It may also perform better as Anti Aliasing and detailed textures like more bandwidth.

    If not then it's a RAM voltage issue as the actual RAM IC's are designed to be run at 4GHz stock, ATI just down clock them for some reason, probably to allow future models to be a bit superior (4890) in the RAM clock department.

    Okay I'm back onto overclocking the CPU.

    My previous Overclock at 3.75Ghz 12.5 x 300Mhz (2.66c Strap) is succesfully stable
    CPU Vcore - 1.375v
    CPU Term - 1.2v
    CPU PLL - 1.5v
    MCH core - 1.2v
    MCH ref - 0.760v
    ICH - 1.5v
    ICH core - 1.2v
    Dram 2.1v


    Last night I preformed a successful Prime 95 blend test at the below settings. So the E5200 can handle a FSB of 333Mhz and can handle clock speeds of 3.8Ghz at the below Vcore. Should I try increasing the Multi to 11.5 x 333 to bump the CPU to 3.8 Ghz

    In post #5 you said that you've never loaded optimized bios settings.
    Make sure that you save your current bios settings in a bios profile BEFORE you load optimized settings.

    Back again, Currently 4 hours into a prime95 blend test. Its looking good! The ram is slightly overclocked using 2.4B strap. Also I'm sure I will soon run into the FSB wall but 350 seems to be pretty good, I've heard a common FSB wall for E5200's is 320.

    If this passes I'll try raising the FSB 10Mhz a time till I get to the wall. Once this happens I'll try for 4 Ghz.

    I still see you have not loaded optimized defaults, Please do this and start over. You will have a much easier go at things.

    Ah Sorry I have loaded the optimized defaults to the bios but I have copy and pasted my original settings from my first post and changed the multi and FSB settings. Sorry about that.

    Ahh ok, well just so you are sure of that. There is several hidden settings that would be wrong, as well as some visible ones and that would mess up your overclocks and possibly make you use more voltages than need be
