I can't get more than 3.3 ghz from my intel e4500 cooled with ac freezer extreme and p31 gigabyte mobo .what's wrong in my rig ? the power supply ? if i buy a seasonic or a rasurbo i get more room for overclok ?
Did you up the voltage already? What settings do you currently have and what other hardware? Memory? I just found out that memory plays a huge role in OCing . Post your specs and maybe the pros on here can help you.
Mobo Gigabyte P31 Es3g bios F4
Cpu intel e 4500--> 3 ghz oc'ed
Ram 2x1 gb Adata extreme 800+ micron d9
Cooling Arctic cooling freezer extreme temp: idle: 28, fulll load: 40 celsius
Power supply Delux 450 watt
Video 9600 gt 512 mb ddr3 gainward
Hdd 1 Tb hitachi
My actual settings for 3 ghz stable are:
Cpu Voltage : 1.475 for 333 x 9
ram set 2.1 volt auto timings, ratio 1:1 with bus cpu result a dropdown frequency to 667 mhz
all power savings to off
performance set to standard
Northbridge and fsb volt set to normal
I think that mobo or power supply isn't good enough to get like 3.6 ghz pls get your oppinions
