I am using my E2160 now since my X58 board got fried. Now this is temporary so anyway I have it on stock cooler, dont wanna install my Thor's Hammer since it DESTROYED my X58. I only have Kingston DDR2 667 Value Ram and currently got it on 2070MHz with the RAM at 1.9065v.... and oh yeah PSU is Cooler Master 600w SLI......I know it sucks but this PC is only temporary and only for torrenting



Board is Asrock G31 MS

Do you need help learning how to overclock or are you having specific problems? There are guides here and all over the web on how to overclock a core 2 chip.

List full system specs and some questions about what problems your having.

The e2160 is based on the core 2 architecture, it's just branded as a Pentium. Are you running your ram in 1:1? And what are some of your other settings/voltages?

There's a good chance that you are unintentionally overclocking your RAM and that is limiting your overclock.

Go into the BIOS and take your memory settings off Auto. Then change whatever you need to set the RAM clock to twice the FSB freq (1:1 ratio). That should be enough to get you over the 240 MHz hump.

new problem got it up to 267 but anything I do above that gives me a BSOD.

although I can still increase ram voltages it says warning (then the 2 "overclocking" voltages) might violate ram specifications...........since its only value ram Im scared to push it further need help

do you have a cooler? stop messing with the RAM since you have value ram. set the FSB/RAM divider low so that you know your RAM is not what's limiting your overclock.

Easiest would be to find the max fsb on ur 2160. I know the 2160's are known to overclock pretty well..

ive got a e2160 on that board running @ 2.7ghz 300 x 9 prime 95 for 8hrs stable make sure you disable intell speed step as it lowers vcore my budget ddr800 running at 950 @1.96 volts stable so it might be your ram letting you down
