Ideal 1:1 w/ my Hardware

I am curious what an experienced person would set my system to based on my hardware. Specs are as follows:

- Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
- Intel E6500 2.93GHz (266.7 x 11)
- Crucial PC2-6400

Below is my current setup to match 1:1 by dropping my RAM and upping my bus a bit. I have stock heatsink on this particular system and would like to know the ideal numbers to push as much as i can and maintain comfiness.


Thanks

  1. try set 5-6-5-14-19 it can better than 6-5-5-16-22
  2. Go . FSB Clock = 333 Mhz ( lower the multiplier for less heat), DRam to
    Clock 667
    system will work at 1:1
    Timing as
    5-5-5-15
    and let me know
  3. Yes, since you have lowered the frequency of the ram you can usually lower the timings as well. Like said above 5-5-5-15 or even 4-4-412 is most likely possible.

    Thanks for the reply. I had fsb at 333 before with highest multiplier of 11 which put me at 3.66 and I opened inventor and autocad and monitored temps and it idled at 54c. And during 100% load for about 3 minutes, it never went over 75c.

    These are core 0 temps. Core 1 was a few degrees lower.

    Would you still recommend lowering the multiplier from 11? If so, by how much would you suggest?

    The CPU voltage is about 1.334 last I checked. I have it on auto but I should be fine as long as I'm below 1.4ish on this 45nm chip, right?

    yes , lower the multiplier to 9 even 8 too
    and set the vcore to 1.42
  6. I disagree with lowering the internal multiplier on a G31 motherboard. The G31/G41 chipsets are economy chips with a limited FSB freq range. My late model GA-G41M-ES2L will not run past about 350 MHz. Lowering the internal multiplier will just limit core speed. Besides, performance does not scale linearly with FSB freq.

    The best thing to do is the simplest: set FSB:RAM ratio to 1:1. Maximize internal multiplier. Run FSB freq up to 333 MHz and increase the core voltage a little. Then start pushing as hard as you want.

    Mine is Prime95 stable at 11 X 333 MHz with the now very average ACF7P cooler.

    yup limited the Core Speed , But have you noticed he got a stock heat sink ?! :pfff:
    beside there is a BIT small deference between Multiplier 11 and 9 not to mention the heat issues :sol:
  8. I'm currently at 333 with 10 multi and volt is auto which is putting me around 1.344 according to cpuz. According to real temp, core temps are 44/37 idle.

    manually set timings to 5-5-5-15

    seems nice :)
    that Vcore while cpu is active , u might need to set it 1.375
  10. you could try timing 4-4-4-12 as well
  11. I don't really understand timings and what they affect exactly..

    when i say timing i mean CL
    CL = CAS latency
    In simple term, it's the number of clock cycles it takes for the memory to respond when it's told to do something. A CAS Latency of 6 means that the memory responds to requests after 6 clock cycles.. the less CL the more money u will have to pay :D
    its also offer's a percentage performance increase in the low single digits for most applications ;)
    Beside the more RAM bus Means the More CL = More Cycles
  13. Quote:
    btw what was your idle temps before you started the oc? Try speedfan aswell to help you with the cooling and tweaking it


    i wanna say like 37.. so about 7 increase when i upped the to 333.
