try to lower the ram to 400mhz
no luck
i just want to oc to around 3.5Ghz
any help wellcome

I have an E5200 running in an old P35 board at 3.75 GHz. (300 MHz. X 12.5). But that doesn't help much.

I also have a Q6600 in a GA-EP45-UD3L running at 3.3 GHz. It was running at 3.6 GHz when it was in my gaming machine until I built a PC using a UD3P and a Q9550.

Here are my settings (based on a CPU with a 1.2875 VID):

Robust Graph Boost [AUTO]
CPU Clock Ratio [12]
Fine is [.5]
CPU Host Clock Control [ENABLED]
CPU Host Freq. [300 MHz]
PCI Express Freq [AUTO]
CIA2 [DISABLED]
Advanced Clock Control - Default values

DRAM
Perform Enh [STD]
XMP [AUTO]
GMCH [AUTO]
SPD [2.00B]
System Mem Freq 600 MHz
Let's me run CPU: Mem ratio of 1:1
DRAM timing Sel [AUTO]
My mem SPD sets 4-4-4-12
Advanced Timing Control - Default values

Loadline Cal [ENABLED]
CPU VCore 1.2875 V [1.4000V]
The first voltage is the VID, can't change it
The rest of the CPU related voltages (CPU, MCH, and ICH) are set to [AUTO]

DRAM Voltage [2.00 V] - use manufacturer's recommendation.

Keep in mind that these settings worked for me.
YMMV

And I am reading on the 'net that the E5200 is a better overclocker than the E5300.

Best solution

Why don't you try to set the Vcore to manual, and set it to the stock VID of your motherboard. Then try upping the FSB maybe 5 or 10 at a time until you couldn't even POST. When it doesn't post then try upping the VCore, or/and unsyncing the RAM.

I think you really really need to read a lot more overclocking articles than trying this immediate suicide run.



* What I managed with my E5200 (M0) on a Gigabyte G31M-ES2C:
CPU voltage: 1.3625V
FSB: 290MHz
CPU Multiplier: 12.5
CPU Speed: 3625MHz
RAM multiplier: 2.66 (Equals to about 771MHz on RAM)
RAM voltage: 1.9V

However I still recommend for you to read!

amnotannoobie, what's your E5200's VID?

I think it was 1.1625v. Some of the M0's I've seen could easily go to 3.33 at stock, but when going at 3.5, 3.6 and beyond some of them seem to need to rack up the voltage really badly.

i think i had read enough
im OCing my e7500 on ASUS P35
over 3.5Ghz

i dont like Gigabyte from the day i bought my 945p with PD 805

anyway i think the problem may come from the ram setting in Gigabyte there are something like

X.XXA 200
X.XXB 266
X.XXC 333
X.XXD 400

please help someone can tell me what they are?

Put SPD at 2. Don't keep ANYTHING at Auto except RGB. Keep manual control of the CPU voltage. That is the key.

Most settings are smiler for your board. You can follow that guide with the P35-DS3L.

edit: Off topic, but your CoolerMaster 500W PSU is low quality. Me recommend you swap it out ASAP.

you are right my psu is not really good
but i only using 8600GT so the psu should be ok

These are the memory speeds, 200 = 400MHz, etc.

Aside from loosening the timings, you could try lowering the speed. You should lower these if your memory couldn't keep up with the FSB.

In example:
If you have DDR2-800MHz memory installed the last setting would correspond to the 800MHz setting. Raising the FSB also increases this value, it may reach a point where it crashes because the memory couldn't run at that certain speed. At such a case you could either increase the mem voltage, or decrease the speed (set it to 333).
