Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L= Help OC

Alright so i got this board in the frame of overclocking in mind...id say its a pretty decent board but 3.7Ghz seems the highest i can get out of it stable.


Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8Ghz@ 3.7ghz 1.35v
4GB Ram 800mhz @1040mhz
Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L


Have i hit the wall or something seems to me everything past 3.75ghz is unstable even if i put 1.4v voltage into processer. My rams are fine they can run at 1058mhz max. So whats the problem

Multiplier = 10.5x

Anybody point me in the right direction to get at least 3.8ghz +

My temps are not high 27c idle 50c load

  1. That's a very good overclock for that motherboard. You might not be able to get a much better overclock even if you were using a GA-EP45-UD3P.
  2. Ghislain is right. The G'byte G31/G41 boards are great for CPU's with a low FSB and high internal multipliers such as the E5200 family. They are not so good with CPU chips with higher FSB's.

    The next thing is that you are overclocking your RAM and that may be limiting your OC. Set your memory clock so that it is twice the FSB.

    Third thing is, you may just have reached the limits of your particular CPU chip.
