  1. stock cooler is crap
    you need something better to go any further
  2. This should be your first stop.
    Core2 Overclocking Guide (generic guide)

    Shadow's Gigabyte motherboard OC guide:
    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

    Go through the guides. Then take your core voltage off Auto and set your memory voltage to factory recommended values. Change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to whatever will get you closest to a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio.

    The G31/G41 chipset is an economy, entry level chipset. Unless you get really lucky, you will not be able to push the FSB freq past about 360 MHz. I have a G'byte G41 board. FSB freq of 352 MHz works. 353 MHz doesn't.

    OTOH, the E5200 series CPU's with their relatively low FSB freq and high internal multiplier work pretty well here.

    From what you have posted, the first step should be better cooling (proton is right). The Wolfdale Core2 CPU's do not present a high thermal load, but at anything more than stock speeds, the stock cooler is inadequate. Something inexpensive like an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro will do nicely.

    Keep your core voltage under 1.45 volts and the load temps under 70 C. With a halfway decent cooler and a Wolfdale CPU, you will more than likely reach voltage limits before you reach thermal limits.
  3. Your temps are next to max ATM. And the mobo and CPU you have are also pretty close to the FSB wall if not already there. The G41s have a 300 FSB wall quite often. To go more you need a P45.
  4. Latest OC 3.6 at 74C

    I will try to pumpit more after i get a batter cooling unit.. :)
    Thx 4 allz u guys..
  5. I had mine stable at 3.8Ghz with much lower temps than that. I think mine was able to clock to 3.9ghz with 1.38v and i just knocked a few mhz off for my 24/7 OC. What cooler are you using?
    That procesor was probably the easiest i've ever overclocked (Almost 50% overclock running 24/7 on air.
  6. That all perfect for u...great! :)

    May be im using cheap ram and psu that make g41m-combo need more juice at Vcore.. using INTEL STOCK COOLER :ouch: lol..My cpu blow up later if i push it more then 3.6GHz :lol: ..
    Cau u give me u setup?using this g41-combo?

    can somebody help me ..? :cry:
  7. Best answer
    duh....i'v got the same mobo n m fully stable @ 3.83 Ghz.........(11.5 x 333) @ 1.47 vcore n 1.3 cpu actually i'v got a better cooler plus Cooler master goldvpro PSu 550w......only thing i saw was tht i cu'nt b able to use tht settings when i had nrmal psu supplied with only trick to throw tht crappy stock cooler n get urself a better rock solid psu...mayb antec would be gud.....n yeah...u could try this settings as well.....
    11.5 x 333 @ 1.46 vcore, 1.3 cpu termination, dram voltages to 1.5v instead of auto......but do it on ur own sake....if u wnna try it on stock cooler....
  8. Will, please do not resurrect 9 month old threads.
  9. hee...i already try v-core at 1.60V at 3.83Ghz but not stable on my rig...
    nevermind...3.66Ghz at 1.55Vcore have a good perfomance on to day gaming :)
    but the temp always at 63C - 73C on full load while play v game..
  10. But for the long term on my rig i decrease my OC to 3.5Ghz at 1.48Vcore...I'm happy with it...almost a year now on this setting.. without anyproblem ^_^

    "Thx for the help from u guys...U all r the best :) "
