Hello, i'm new to the site. Just looking for some help overclocking my E8200 watercooled atm on my ASUS P5N-D motherboard, i've tried almost everything, no matter what i change the settings to it doesn't boot, even 5% overclock wont boot. is there something i'm missing? or is my motherboard faulty?
Thanks! I would really appreciate the help!
if you change the bus frequency to anything but the stock settings it doesnt boot, it also doesnt matter what voltage i set, or memory timings, or latency, it still doesn't boot. i was wondering if anyone with the some motherboard/processor could help me out. I have to be missing something, or my motherboard faulty.
Well I dont know much about nvidia chipsets I do know they suck at overclocking the best for core 2s are P45 chipsets but anyhow. Make sure your ram is unlinked and set to whatever your ram is 533, 667, 800. Then raise your FSB to whatever you want to overclock leave everything else alone. I have an E8200 and i didnt have to start adding extra voltage til i hit 3.4ghz but all chips are different. Also make sure your RAMs voltage is set correctly too.
I have heard so many horror stories about that chipset on that board from what i have seen people were lucky to get 500mhz OC out of it. I am able to hit 4GHZ with my E8200 and could go higher but my RAM is holding me back a little.
If you could can you list all you components it helps us see conflicts are other problems that could be a problem.
