OC'ing Question RE: Intel E5200

Hey everyone,

I'm running an Intel E5200 LGA 775 on a GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L. I have gone into the BIOS and set the CPU Clock to [12x] and the Fine CPU Clock Ratio to [+ 0.5]. I am only now getting the 2.5Ghz that the chip should be running at (which is stock).

Question 1: What other settings do I need to modify to get this chip to 3.0+
Question 2: Why was the chip running at 2.0Ghz with stock motherboard settings and not 2.5Ghz (aka why did I have to adjust the ratio to get the stock CPU clock)?

My BIOS settings:

CPU Clock [12x]
Fine CPU Clock Ratio [+ 0.5]
CPU Frequency [2.50Ghz (200 x 12.5)]
CPU Host Clock Control [Disabled]
X CPU Host Frequency [333]
PCI Express Frequency [Auto]
Performance Enhance [Standard]
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) [Auto]
Memory Frequence (Mhz) 800 800
*** System Voltage Optimized ***
X DDR2 OverVoltage Control [Normal]
X FSB OverVoltage Control [Normal]
X CPU Voltage Control 1.33125V
X Normal CPU vCore 1.28750v

Help to pushing to 3.0+ is GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you

Welcome to the cheap seats. Cheap CPU + Cheap Motherboard = Lots of potential. :D

My BIOS settings:

CPU Clock [12x]
Fine CPU Clock Ratio [+ 0.5]
CPU Frequency [2.50Ghz (200 x 12.5)]
CPU Host Clock Control [Disabled]........Change this to ENABLED. Then you can change the FSB.
CPU Host Frequency [333]
PCI Express Frequency [Auto]
Performance Enhance [Standard]
System Memory Multiplier (SPD) [Auto]..Change this to 2.00
Memory Frequence (Mhz) 800 800.........Then you will see Mem Freq change to 2 times FSB.
*** System Voltage Optimized ***.......That will give you your 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio.
X DDR2 OverVoltage Control [Normal]....Set this to factory recommended RAM voltage. 1.8 volts is default.
X FSB OverVoltage Control [Normal].......Shouldn't need to adjust this. Doubtful you will exceed 333 MHz.
X CPU Voltage Control 1.33125V...........Intel's recommended max is 1.3625 volts. Absolute max is 1.45 volts:( 
X Normal CPU vCore 1.28750v.............This is your VID. Like mine, it's higher than average. :( 

You have a higher than average VID. That's the voltage that your particular CPU program's the motherboard's power regulator to supply. Lower is better because it tends to give you more OC headroom. I describe this as winning or losing the CPU lottery. :)  The downside to this is that I think it is unlikely for you to get much past 3.6 GHz.

keep your load temps under 70 C. I go into the PC Health BIOS section and set the CPU temperature alarm to 70 C. and I set the CPU fan warning.
Question 2. I don't know.

there is hope im running the e5300 (stock 2.66ghz) and ive got it to 3.55ghz [273x13]

and with 1.3375V's
