    Default Need help to overclock my e7600+ep45-ud3l

    Hey guys,

    This is my setup:

    Processor: E7600 @ 3.0
    Mainboard: GA-EP45-UD3L
    Memory: CORSAIR XMS2 DDR2-800 (2x)4GB (1.8V)
    Cooler: (will be) Hyper 212 plus (using intel box on this moment)

    Currently I have my system running at 3.45 GHz, these are my BIOS settings, I've highlighted the settings I changed:

    Are you using Core Temp/RealTemp to monitor temperatures or is it CPU temperatures?
    Could be that 3.45GHz is the max it can do with normal vcore, try to enable LLC(Load Line Calibration).
    Set VTT(CPU Termination) and CPU PLL to the default shown in BIOS.
    Manually set MCH Core 1.16v and DRAM Volatge 1.9v.
    If you can post MemSet main and SPD(click spd) window screen capture.

    Please fill your signature with your system settings, including a link to ram specs.

    - monitor temps are 30ºidle nucleo temps are 41º idle
    - ok i will try this, but can i increase CPU Host Frequency ?
    - thanks

    Do you have MCH/DRAM Refernce and Channel A/B Ref in BIOS?
    What is the BIOS version and board revision?
    You will have much better memory performance with 400+ FSB

    When you find stable settings you can try 406MHz FSB for the known 3.45GHz.

    Default Re: Need help to overclock my e7600+ep45-ud3l

    thank you i will try later, but i have some questions]

    1] why set 1.9v to memory ? more volts give more power? since the memory will work at 800mhz wich default is 1.8v

    2] can i leave CIE enable to rest cpu in idle ?

    3] so the limit will be 3.45ghz ?

    4] With your config at 3.4ghz, will be better than mine at 3.45ghz ?

    thanks

    You can try and leave memory at 1.8v.
    1.9v is within standard limits, and we are going to put much more stress on the memory so it may need it.
    Download MaxxMEM² - PreView to compare memory performance.

    It is advised to OC with C1E and EIST disabled at first, then you may try to enable them, as they may cause instability with a higher minimum frequency.

    The limit is definately not 3.45GHz, but it may be the limit for normal vcore(which is the only way you can use C1E and EIST realy).

    With 400MHz memory will perform much betterm as I wrote you can try to increase to 406MHz as we know the CPU is capable to do 3.45GHz with normal vcore.

    I am still not clear about your temps, can you run Core Temp or RealTemp and post the temps you get there and under what load you get them.

    this is the result of the memory test and core temps during prime95 (5 minutes), i'm not using your config yet, i will try later, then i will post the results to compare, and about the temps, i think tomorrow i will get the hyper 212 plus wich i think will degrease 10º on full load

    Cool, lets see what you get with 400/406MHz FSB.
