Well, I've seen lots of topics on the E4300 round here, I guess it's a great OC'ing CPU.
Anyway, I want to OC my CPU, I can get it from 1.8 to 2.2 Ghz using the A.I Overclock feature of my ASUS P5N32-E SLI Motherboard, but I want to go higher, but not sure how.
I've tried increasing the FSB, but as soon as I put it over 1000 FSB, the system hangs at the BIOS Menu screen (Where you press Del to enter setup)
But anything under that FSB is fine....
What's going on, and can anyone help please?
give us all of your system specs, ram, psu, cooler ect, we will help you out more then, basically, up your mch by 0.1 or 0.2, up your cpu to 1.45v, put your ram at 1:1 and run it at 2.1v and you should be able to clock to 333fsb if you have a cooler.
if you EVER overclock your processor to 3.6, if you use a 9x multiplier you would have to do 400FSB and to run it asynchronous you woul dhave your ram @ 400 which is STOCK, so you wouldn't be killing anything...right now i have pc6400 ram, underclockd... runin @ 667 because my fsb is runnin @ 333 therefore my ram is runnin @ (333 dual channel=667) hope i made myself clear enough :], so basically if u have 6400 ram dont even worry about it
let me put it this way, if you have pc6400 ram, no matter how much overclock your processor as soon as you run it 1:1, and with a 9x multiplier, you won't have to overclock your ram. unless you go over 400fsb which i dont think u will.
