    Default MB Intelligent Tweaker settings

    With following parts:

    CPU: Core 2 Duo E6320 (4M Cache, 1.86GHz, 1066MHz FSB)
    Memory: 2 x 1GB A-DATA Extreme DDR2 800+ 4-4-4-12, 2.0~2.1V
    Motherboard: GA-965P-DS3 (rev. 3.3) with latest BIOS

    What would be the correct settings under M.I.T.? I saw the guide but couple of things I'm not still sure about so would feel better if anyone could look at the settings. These are after clear CMOS and 'Load Fail-Safe Defaults'. I added my comments in grey.

    Code:

    Got exactly the same CPU, but on the board in my sig. Currently can see 2.8GHz with very little effort. It's running at 50ish on load. Haven't needed to add much voltage so you should be cool. What cpu host freq are you aiming for?

    E6320 @ 3.15GHz

    Well actually, my post wasn't so much about overclocking but just for starters getting correct settings for stock speeds. So I'll be a bit more specific and if anyone could answer the questions would be great. I followed this post.

    1) Is the System Memory Multiplier 3.00 correct? So it's 3 * 266 = 798 ~ 800MHz?

    2) About DDR2 OverVoltage Control. In the post I linked it says it should be set so by adding 1.8 to it you'll get your ram's voltage requirement. So in my case what is it? On the sticker it says 2.0~2.1V so I took as 2.1V is the requirement but SPD shows 2.0V so should I actually set the DDR2 OverVoltage Control to +0.2V instead of +0.3V?

    3) And all the voltage settings in general, would they be ok like I set in comments even if you're not going to overclock?

    Can you say what's the fps gain in games compared to the stock speed? And if it runs 50ish on load then what was the temp on 1.86GHz?

    It is recommended to load optimized defaults, not fail-safe.

    I am in the opinion that there's no need to chenge anything unless it is required.
    You may not even need to change the timings and DDR voltage if the BIOS read the EPP. Check MemSet main window for timings, and PC Health for actual applied DDR voltage.
    The SPD show 2.0v but this is for one DIMM, with two more may be needed, if A-Data says 2.1v is OK then there's no problem and you don't void your warrenty.
    As for the other voltages I'd leave them be unless you experiance instability. MCH OverVoltage +0.1 may be all that is needed.

    EDIT: start with DDR2 OverVoltage +0.2 if it's not enough use +0.3.

    I had loaded fail-safe defaults because I updated BIOS. But optimized defaults didn't change anything. MemSet still shows 5-5-5-18 and CPU-Z shows core speed as 1600MHz so obviously there is a need to change something and that's why I need to know how to do it correctly.

    Start with 4-4-4-12 timings and DDR2 Over voltage +0.2/+0.3, then MCH OverVoltage +0.1 if still not stable.
    Run memtest86+ for a few passes then Prime95 blend torture for 8+ hours.
    Watch core temperatures, with stock settings they shouldn't get over 55-60c during Prime95.

    All I'm asking is how to change the settings in BIOS to get the PC to run on stock speeds. Why would I need to run stress tests for that? There shouldn't be any stability issues without overclocking.

    With BIOS defaults everything is already set to "stock" and there is no need to change anything.

    But even with stock settings it is a good idea to run stress tests when you build your own system. There can always be compatibility issues or parts at fault.

    So I set the values to 4-4-4-12 but why does MemSet show Command Rate as 1T when it should be 2T? CPU-Z shows 2T.

    Why does CPU-Z show core speed as 1600MHz and multiplier x6? Only for a second it randomly jumps to 1866MHz and x7 but most of the time it's stuck at 1600MHz so what's with that?

    And voltages I set to +0.2, +0.1, +0.1, +0.1, +1.35

    Bug in MemSet is my guess, is it the latest version? Try to download it again, if still the same I'll report to the author.

    This is normal when C1E and EIST are enabled, the CPU frequency is lowered to save power, under load it will be max of CPU frequency.
