im trying to overclock my core 2 duo e7200(2.53GHz) to 3.0GHz
i did overclocked it a little i am currently @ 2.77GHz right now, but once i reach 3.0 my computer boots up like normal gets to the desktop, and after a while it crashes!
i have an AMI bios with a msi p7n SLI PLATINUM motherboard.
i only adjusted the FSB clock and the voltage too and also i disabled intel EIST
am i accidentally overclocking the RAM which limits my overclock? if yes, how do i prevent it from overclocking?
or am i doing it wrong? can anyone tell me how to overclock with this these settings on the bios?
rocketfish universal cpu cooler rf-upcuwr
right now my pc is ~ 40c
2 sticks from micron technology @ 333MHz each
2 sticks from corsair @ 400 MHz each
Your mixing ram, so both sets will be running at the lower speed (assuming the mix doesn't cause any other compatability issues)
Is there anything in that [Advanced DRAM configuration] menu that lets you override an auto setting for the speed?
possibly changing the system clock mode to unlinked will help, but you will then have to configure your settings manually.
I'm not too good with manually overclocking so maybe this is more of a bump than help hehe
