    Default Overclock E7200 on P45-DS3

    Hi I'm trying to get my E7200 on P45-DS3 to run stable at 3.20GHz on Win7 OS.

    Memtest and Prime95 runs fine but running Flash app in browser sometimes crashes and occasionally will encounter BSOD.



    Any idea how can I improve the stability?

    Please find my BIOS settings below.

    You shouldn't have the need to change clock skews at 400MHz FSB.
    For 2GB memory set MCH Core 1.16-1.2v, for 4GB 1.2-1.24v.
    You may also try 1.22v CPU Termination, and one step up CPU PLL.

    For how long have you ran Prime95? What are max core temps during Prime95?
    A screen capture as described in step 4 in this post will be helpful.

    Updated my BIOS settings with the following.

    Code:
    CPU Clock Skew (ps) ------------------ : [0ps]
    MCH Clock Skew (ps) ------------------ : [0ps]
    
    (G)MCH Frequency Latch ---------------- : [Auto]
    
    CPU Termination --------- 1.200V ----- : [1.220V]
    
    MCH Core ---------------- 1.100V ------- : [1.24]
    Flash app still crashes though. And also please find more info as capture.

    A few things.
    Temperatures are very high for Prime95, It is recommended that you find a better cooling solution.
    Performance Level 1 is not reasonable, it may be a bug in MemSet, or a problem in BIOS.
    Vcore 1.104v (in CPU-Z) is very far from the set 1.3v, normally it would be 0.06-0.1v less, not more, could you include EasyTune -> Tuner -> Advanced -> Voltage tab screen capture as well?

    What is the board revision and installed BIOS version?

    How long are you testing with prime?

    Flash issues can be any number of things, bad programming on the creators part, bad drivers, bad flash install, old version of flash player or shockwave player, bad video drivers, and the list goes on.

    If you are stable for several hours or more with Prime95 I doubt your system stability has anything to do with your flash issues.

    What is it exactly you are doing in flash? Is is a link we can test ourselves, if so please link and explain how long it takes you to see the issue or what you are doing when it happens.

    Please manually set your own tRD Value (Static tRead Value) in the BIOS, if you are using 2.00B memory multi 6-7 should be ok, if you are using 2.00D then you may need to use 8-9

    I thought that's a bug in CPU-Z, will try to install EasyTune and update here again.

    My P45-DS3 board is rev 1.0 and installed BIOS is F9.

    Priming for few hours. For the flash issue, it's did not crash when I run at stock thus I suspect it's due to overclocking. The flash app is texas holdem which you can find it in FB.

    I'll try your advise on the tRD and see how it goes.
