P5G41T-M LX 6790

Hellow, ive got a E7400 c2d processor running at stock 2.8 Ghz. Will the Asus P5G41T-M LX motherboard let me overclock it to 4.0 Ghz. If not then what speed can i achieve max?

  1. There's no MAX(Unless max voltage for vCore) you can overclock as high as you can without going over 1.35v and your good... You should be able to reach 4GHz lower than 1.35v but im not sure so dont think you can go to 4GHz at 1.35v... More Voltage over 1.35v can cause it lifespin to degrade...
  2. P5G41T-M LX is a basic board at best

    overclocking is NOT about setting targets like 4ghz, you find your limit as you go

    just remember clock speeds dont kill cpu's, VOLTAGE kills cpus

    It's not just voltage... it's also about temps too... To not decrease lifespin, stay under 80*C+under 1.3v vCore
  4. The G41 is an economy chipset with a limited upper FSB freq (about 350 - 360 MHz). The most you can likely expect is about 3.7 - 3.8 GHz.

    The max safe temp is a little over 70 C. 80 C is too high.

    Intel's recommended max core voltage is 1.45 volts:

    You can learn all kinds of neat things poking about the technical documentation. :)

    The MAX vCore of 1.45v is not recommended for 24/7 use... It'll degrade the CPU worst than having it at 80*C... Staying under 1.3v + under 60*C, your CPU will last as long as nothing fails...
  6. Okay so what ill have is : C2D E7400 @ 3.4 Ghz (After OC). HIS 6790, p5g14t-m lx mobo , 4 GB DDR III RAM , Antec true power 850 W PSU...Good gaming rig??? Just need 2 replace the old intel mobo n transfer my cpu onto the new asus one...
  7. Sorry but 1 more thing...the mobo supports a max fsb of 1333 Mhz..so at that setting max fsb speed should be 1333/4= 333 Mhz...multiplier is 10.5. So 333*10.5=3497 Mhz or 3.5 Ghz...IDK but does that mean max oc i can achieve is 3.5 Ghz or is the calculation wrong???sorry but im new to all of this and i want 2 gather as much info as possible...
  8. Just raise BCLK as high as you can stay under the 75*C plus under 1.35v but some CPU are OC differently such as my i7-950, I did 19x200 but it did not work(unstable), so i tried 23x167 it worked(stable)... You ganna be OCing in different ways than other people to get higher OC/Speed...
  9. K thx alot man...hope this gaming rig will play all of the latest games on decent graphics...

    It will not play decent graphic on games because your CPU is kinda useless on BF3... The Recommended requirement is a Quad Core and Windows 7 64-Bit(Any version, home to ultimate) and 4GB RAM to get decent graphic or stock settings... Your CPU is ganna be holding you back from games such as Crysis 2 DX11 LOL... Just go with a i5 2500k or the new X3960(Later this year by September or december) which is a Hexa Core with Quad Memory Channel and "IS" better than 990X at same price but the 990X will drop to $700 or so... Also, by few years like 2015, a lot of games is ganna be taking advantage of "Hexa Cores" soon since it's ganna be popular because it taken advantage of over 15% of world's laptop by 2015 and 50% of the laptops is quad cores...
  11. "CRACK!"..that basically shatters my hopes man...trust me if i cud afford a i5 ryt now, i wud buy one..but gotta salvage wat ive got..anywayz thnx 4 all da advice bro much appreciated...
