How high of a FSB can my 1333 mobo handle? Tags: Motherboards RAM Gigabyte Overclocking Last response: January 31, 2009 3:54 AM in Overclocking Share gtf6 January 30, 2009 4:20:36 AM I have a gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L mobo which supports a 1333mhz fsb I have: intel e6750 (2.66) @ 3.2 stock voltage - 1.325v - i think 4gb 1066mhz ram (1110 max) @ 800 - 5-5-5-15 - 1.8v ECS 9800 GTX+ Stock coller The cpu is currently @ 400 x 8 which gives me a FSB of 1600, which is a lot higher than the specified FSB. How far can I push it? Is it safe to run like this? Am I better of trying to push the FSB untill I need a voltage increase, or trying to reduce the ram timings? thanks p.s at 1110 the ram should have 5-7-7-25 timings @ 1.8v More about : high fsb 1333 mobo handle jsc a c 156 V Motherboard a c 197 K Overclocking January 30, 2009 3:28:31 PM 1333 motherboard means an FSB of 333 MHz. I have a GA-EP35-DS3P that was rock solid at 400 MHz with a Q6600. System was stable at 3.6 GHz. when tested with a 24 hour Prime95 run. Currently, it's running at 425 MHz with a Q9550. Currently, according to your parts list, the limiting factor is the HSF. I would not go any higher with the stock cooler. And youtr RAM timings do not look that good. When you start going for a max OC, you need to balance applied voltages and temperatures. calinkula January 30, 2009 10:58:06 PM With a stock cooler you'll need to look at your CPU temps. An aftermarket is a must buy is you plan to OC more. BTW, my Asus board with a P35 north bridge is sitting at a 450 FSB. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
