    Default Help Overclock: Q8200 UD3P OCZ DDR2 1066

    I have posted this in the overclocking forum as well, but since you all are the experts in Gigabyte figured I'd throw this your way too :)

    System Specs:
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200
    MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P
    RAM: OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR2 1066

    I'd lower expectation for both. 3.3GHz may be possible if the CPU can handle the 470MJz FSB required for it, not going to be easy though.
    As for the ram I doubt it can get near DDR-1333, though so far is doing good at 1066 with 2x4GB configuration without a hassle.

    Read this post, run some stability tests at stock settings, a few passes of memtest86+ and 6+ hours of Prime95/Orthos blend torture or OCCT COU medui, data set will do.

    Start increasing FSB making the nesessary changes to CPU Vcore/Termination/PLL and MCH Core. At FSB higher than ~430MHz CPU/MCH Reference and CPU/MCH clock Skew may need tweaking too.

    Thanks for the reply!!!

    I read through the article of the recommended settings and will implement those asap, and just start slowly tweaking it.

    I have read in a couple of places where people have gotten up to 3.5 stable for 10+ hours in Prime.

    I have seen the following with air cooling but wonder if it is legit:
    500*7 (3.50GHz)
    Vcore: 1.39375V
    Prim95 stable for about 13 hours.
    core 0: 70.7
    1: 63
    2: 66
    3: 64
    Ave vcore: 1.31
    ave fan speed 1356
    ave ram fan speed 6238

    Note- all settings were auto except vcore and RAM settings.

    I will tweak with my settings and report back.

    I agree with Chkie's post.

    I have used a Q8200 on my UD3P and it's hard work getting past 3.2GHz. I eventually topped out at 3.4GHz with 1.3625V and LLC on, after a fair bit of tweaking including MCH Ref and CPU Ref, as well as using a modest 0.26V MCH Core. No clock skew was needed. It made things worse.

    I can 100% guarantee you will not get your RAM to 1333, especially with the current timings it comes with from the factory. If you had a set of 1066 4-4-4-12's then I'd say at 6-5-5-18 or 6-6-6-18 you may scrape 1333. Those IC;'s won't have a chance unfortunately.

    CPU speed, especially because ytou're going to be using ~450+ FSB will be more impportant. Just raising the FSB will give more performance all round. With my Q8200 I ran the 1066 RAM at DDR-972 (486x7) and it performed nicely indeed. Adding RAM speed after a certain point or with a very slow FSB has little effect compared to CPU speed.

    Due to the way the CPU has a 7x mulit and the available RAM multipliers I can be almost cetain that you'll be underclocking that RAM,not over clocking. This is because at that kind of FSB, moving away from the 1:1 multi (2.00x) will mean a jump in speed the RAM will not handle at any voltage and timings etc.

    The 3.5GHz you quote is possible but it's the high end of what the regular CPU stepping can do. If you have a low power version it's different. You'll know if you had a low power version as it would state so on the packaging and be about 40% more expensive (not worth it).

    Psycho

    I really appreciate the info - I knew I had a snowballs chance in Hades of getting the RAM to 1333 being that it is Fatality, but I thought someone might know some crazy hat trick. With the stock timings I was actually surprised I could get it to run at 1066 stable dual channel......but it was dirt cheap.

    I knew that RAM speed wouldn't make a dramatic impact, but with the multipliers I was hoping to err higher and get lucky, but alas it looks like it is not to be .

    My goal was to up the FSB and keep my voltage around 1.275 and shoot for 3.36 steady daily use, but I guess we will see if I can make it happen :)

    On another note I just picked up the Intel X-18 80GB SSD today as well so I figure if I can get the overclock stable around 3.2 - 3.4 the system will scoot pretty well. It is primarily a graphics, media, and some gaming as I have 4.5 TB of Audio and Movies.

    Again thanks for all of your helpful advice. Cheers - I'll report back in a couple of days and see what I can get :)

    The board is approx the same as mine,you can get 3.5 G 24/7 if u want to but 490 fsb(3.43 ghz seems to be a good compromise to maintain pl 9 on memory and lower voltages.
    That is running memory 1:1 ie 980 mhhz or 1000 mhz.

    My own settings should be in posts way back there somewhere .. but sig ones are what I use now.

    its all about fsb or base speed the nb is going to be communicating at,.. its core temp (on air ) is going to go over 40C at 500+ref/2000+ fsb and it doesnt seem to like it much.
    Anything up to 470 cpu ref and u will probably get away with much lower voltages/maybe able to run mem on a multiplier.
    9gb/s is ok for me tho with cas 5 timings on the memory.10 is about all you can get on 45 chipset i think.unlike the 20+ on ddr3/i5/i7 58/55.

    Could Kick, not can. I had no way of getting over 3.4GHz, regardless of settings and voltages etc etc.

    Anything up to 470 cpu ref
    I'm also confused with the way you're grouping FSB And CPU Ref together both in this post and in your signature. CPU Ref has nothing to do with FSB. FSB is a clock speed, CPU Ref is a [B]voltage[B]. Apples and Oranges. FSB speed is kind of "referenced" by the CPU multiplier when thy are multiplied to come to the over all clock speed, but that doesn't make FSB "CPU Ref"...

    Let me rephrase to avoid confusion.

    1.People can achieve 3.5ghz on the q8200 stable 24/7 on the 45/ud3 boards.
    Some may not,I personally tired of the higher voltages required for a minimal performance gain over 3.43 Ghz.

    2.The figures for a reference frequency are refered to in the bios as cpu host frequency eg 333mhz standard for our cpu, or some other frequency the user can set ,up to a practical limit for quads on air of 500 approx.
    This frequency is a reference frequency for 3 items:

    a.the first item, front side bus frequency,generally shortened to fsb is fixed at 4x reference frequency.
    eg.333mhz set in bios as the cpu host frequency = 1332mhz fsb.

    b.the second item is cpu speed,this can vary according to the cpu multiplier.eg 333mhz set as cpu host frequency for our cpu can result in 2 possible cpu speeds 6x333mhz or 7x333mhz.

    c.the third item is memory speed.
    There are various memory speeds available depending on which memory multiplier u specify ,but they all use the cpu host frequency as a reference frequency or constant.

    If you are wondering how I determine the northbridge or mch (memory control hub) temprature: I have a sperate temperature sensor connected to it.
    For me ,I find if the temperature of the (mch) goes over 41-42C I begin to lose stability.The cpu temp doesnt seem too bad.
    There may be other factors involved such as individual board component temps or memory temp due to increased voltages,but i have no way of measuring those temps.
    I hope this clears up any confusion.

    Noc<
    Those figures u quote,they may be mine altho in practice i ended up having to use 1.42v for cpu in bios to compensate .Memory needed 2.22v etc
    also leaving fsb voltage and cpu termination voltage on auto at those speeds can leave you with 1.8v+ for fsb and 1.65v+ for cpu term.
    With 8Gb of ram you may not achieve the speeds you are looking for.
    I tried 8gb using the ram in my sig and 2 sticks of samsung 667(5300) value ram. I achieved 350 cpu host frequency(to avoid confusion) easily enough .I think 700mhz was the cheaper rams limit tho.
    I think I achieved 360 cpu host frequency 720mhz ddr2 ram speed stable using the 2 value ram sticks on their own,but didnt bother testing beyond that.Lifes too short.

    Ive included the settings I use at the moment.
    There would be no reason they shouldnt work for you,EXCEPT different type and quantity of ram.
    Heyyy 1.3625v cpu core and your sig says lower!.
    I like to get things running a little higher than the cpu host frequency that i actually use then back off the cpu host frequency.
    For 495 ,I needed 1.3625V so use that for 490.even tho i didnt have any probs at 1.34375v.
    When I was running 500 cpu host frequency I used what I needed for 505 etc.

    My own machine has lower performance than the i7 /i5 ddr3 setups but not that much less to make me want to upgrade.
    I think there is a certain amount of price fixing going on to make the price differential between 775 quad /ddr2 mem and newer processors/ddr3 mem worth the upgrade.
