    Default *EDIT* I changed this into an actual post! :D

    I did my first tweak today.. overvoltaged the memory by +0.1v to match the recommended and stop my bios health from saying 'memory: fail'..

    I am ze ****! *EDIT* NEVERMIND

    Default le poo

    This thread was a waste.. so let me just reuse it..

    I am trying to overclock a Gigabyte DS3 mobo w/ e6300 but after entering new Bios settings, my computer actually runs slower than normal.

    Here's what I did in more detail..

    So I have the afforementioned 965G-DS3 motherboard with an Intel e6300 and 2 gigs of cas 4 Corsair ddr2 800 ram, and I wanted to try out overclocking - so I followed a 'guide' I found on another site and changed the following in the BIOS:

    Disabled the following:
    ~limit CPUID Max 3
    ~CPU Enhanced Halt (C1E)
    ~CPU Thermal Monitor 2 (TM2)
    ~CPU EIST

    Changed the following in M.I.T (mobile intelligent tweaker?):
    ~DRAM +.3v for 2.1v total
    ~vICH +.1v
    ~CPU host clock/frequency 333Mhz

    The result? Once I press 'F10' to save and exit, my computer will not restart. So, I manually power off and reboot. The boot goes very slow. Vista starts up very slow. Starting up apps like CPU-Z or internet explorer take three times as long as they would at stock BIOS settings..

    Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? or maybe I have a faulty component?

    Also, anyone know what I should do with the vMCH and vFSB?

    Well, thanks in advnace for your input!

    If it required you to cold boot after saving settings, something isn't right.

    Don't touch DRAM voltage unless your RAM needs more voltage than normal. Maybe do a +.1v, but +.3v is not necessary.

    Put a divider on the RAM. Set it to 2.00 (forget what it's labeled, something like RAM multi or something stupid and unintuitive like that), meaning twice the CPU frequency. Set CPU to 400 with stock multiplier. Give a minor voltage bump on FSB and MCH (maybe .2v). Give a minor voltage bump on CPU.

    That should work just fine and actually make things run faster. You can gradually increase FSB up to whatever your RAM can handle, say 450ish with bigger voltage bumps. You may also need to increase MCH and FSB voltage as you go up.

    My system:
    S3, E6300, 2x1GB G. Skill DDR2 800, Enermax 620W
    430x7
    MCH +.3v
    FSB .3v
    VCORE just a couple bumps from stock, I forget what exactly
    RAM + .2v

    Very stable, provided your cooling is sufficient. Your system should overclock almost exactly the same as mine.

    Cool My first overclock

    Yes, i can remember my first O/C in my Pentium 4 rig: a 10 Mhz increase in CPU clock. I was saying: WOW! my first O/C! Then, i kept gong, and going and going. Now i overclock safely. Very nice!

    Thank you so much, Yawg!
    I followed your guidelines and everything runs smoother than it did at stock. It absolutely flies compared to my first attempt..
    Now I know why so many people overclock.. Awesome.
