I'm pretty new to overclocking in general, but i'm sure my graphics card will go faster, but I must be doing something wrong. As every time I overclock it I get worse framerates in my games, ARGGGHHHH!!!! Please help.
So far this is my pc:
Got it stable taking it back to 1.4v. gona try lowering it even more later. Its a CO processor. How much difference does it make? I took my ram voltage back n all but had to increase timings again. It was too buggy while gaming . Looks like I was being a peen arse when checking over graphics clocks. Ones i posted where my max speeds it will let me increase too. The stock speeds are:
Graphics Clock- 666mhz
Mem Clock- 1150mhz
Serves me right lol. Wont be having mates over while overclocking again me thinks
Ok BioS settings thus far
CPU Ratio - 9x
FSB - 444mhz
PCIE Frequency - 100mhz
DRAM Timings 5-5-5-18
CPU Voltage 1.4
DRAM Voltage 2.1
CPU Spread Spectrum - Disabled
PCI Spread Spectrum - Disabled
CPU Margin Enhancement - Performance
C1E Support - Disabled
Execute Disable bit - Disabled
Everything else is pretty much set to Auto
But let me know if you need any more info
thanks for the warning. im starting again from scratch seing as ive learnt alot from everyone here in the past few days. will continue ocing after work tomoz and will post new results soon. any critical advice before i restard would be much appreciated. thanks peeps
Excellent. Ive turned on the C1E Support and speed step n all that jazz. PC still seems stable and happy to lower the ratio by its self no problem.
Decided I'd try and get some tighter timings with my ram.
On the Corsair website they say they got my RAM down to 4-4-4-12 timings at 400mhz at 2.1v.
I've had no luck. The PC boots happily enough but its really unstable, random restarts and closing programs.
So I took the timings back to 4-4-4-15. Better but not great.
Should I be increasing the nb voltage aswell?
I'm not entirely sure how to work out the GTL reference voltage too.
Any suggestions would be great. Thaanks for your help so far aswell.
I think its ok. Prim95 and MemTest found no errors. With the temp only hitting 54C.
Thats with these settings
FSB Strap top NB Auto
DRAM Freq 801mhz 5 5 5 18
DRAM Static |Read Control Disabled
DRAM Read timing Disabled
Mem. OC CHarger Enabled
AI Clock Twister Auto
AI Transaction Booster Auto
CPU GTL Ref Auto
CPU PPL V 1.6
FSB Termination V 1.26
DRAM V 1.9
SB V 1.1
Spread Spectrum Disabled
NB Clock Skew Auto
CPU Clock Skew Auto
CPU Margin Enhancement Performance
C1E Support Enbled
Max CPUID Value Limit Disabled
Intel V tech Enabled
CPU TM Function Enabled
Execute Disable bit Enabled.
How do those seem?
Im going to leave Prime95 running all day while im at work make sure there are no probs after long time.
Any ideas on what I should do with the stuff ive got set to auto? Or where i can find a simple explanation of what they do?
