    Question Overclocking my E8200 to 4ghz please help!!!

    Hey guys I'm clocked at 3.79 and am looking for advise on further overclockig my CPU to at least 4.0ghz. I have an asus p5q se2 motherboard and to my knowledge I cannot adjust my CPU and ram seportly. My ram is 800mhz but I have it clocked to 950-960mhz. I'm looking for a way to push my CPU further without upgrading ram.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I'm at my wits end and I need some advise everything is welcome and I need it.

    Thanks everyone I appreciate any advise.

    What settings have you used so far? Is everything at stock except the CPU/RAM? Have you tried loosening RAM timings/increasing its voltage / increasing voltage to the NB? Have you messed with the VTT/PLL voltages?

    VTT/PLL help you achieve higher FSB OCs. Too much, though, and you break something.

    Now, I'd set your FSB strap to 333, see if that does anything. It looks like you're running your RAM at a 1:1 ratio, so we can't drop the divider. If 333 doesn't allow the 1:1 ratio, then drop it again. Set the CPU margin enhancement to "compatibility mode", if it has it. Set PCI Express Freq to 100, no reason to go over that.

    I don't remember the stock voltage on P45, unfortunately. Did you increase it? Did you increase the voltage to the ICH?

    Now, my guess is that your RAM is holding you back, but we'll want to make sure of that. Increase your FSB to whatever you'd need to hit 4GHz (500MHz?), but drop the CPU multiplier so you aren't pushing the CPU. If it boots and gets into windows, then we know that the RAM is ok, and the CPU may be the issue.

    If it doesn't boot, which is likely, then we can try tweaking the RAM to get it to boot with the increased frequency. Try loosening up the timings and increasing the voltage (don't pass 2.1-2V if you are worried).

    Let us know how that works out!

    Is the vtt/pll the same as the CPU gtl reference? N what should I set my Ai clock twister to? It's set to light now.

    Oh yeah the CPU stock voltage is 1.25 I believe.

    Drop your FSB Term to 1.28V.

    Your NB's volts are a tad high, too.

    VTT/PLL are different voltages, and neither is the GTL reference, something with a definition that escapes me; LGA775 is old! Really, I'd not go and increase voltages when it doesn't need to be done. What all have you adjusted?

    Try the RAM tweak first.

    Did you go through and randomly increase stuff, out of curiosity?

    Oh, you can also try a vCore boost (can't believe I forgot this one!). Intel's highest rated voltage for the chip is 1.365V, so you have a bit of headroom. I'd say it's safe to exceed it a little, but I'd be wary to go too far ahead of that.

    I changed my CPU ratio setting to 7.0
    I also raised m fsb to 500 it booted and I started to run a performance test but it crashed after a few mins.
    I dropped the fsb strap to 333 if I go any lower it really wants to bump my dram frequency up.
    I lowered the fsb termination voltage and it went to 1.3 instead of 1.28
    Also lowered north bridge... How's my south bridge?
    And yes kinda. I was having a strange error when I booted into windows my direct x wouldn't work for some reason and when I upped the voltages it seemed fix the problem. But i don't know if it's just coincidence.

    The southbridge looks alarmingly high - but I don't remember what's stock for it. Just set it to auto. It has no part in overclocking here.

    All you need to worry about (by way of general parts) are: RAM, NB [RAM Controller], CPU

    Ok, so 1GHz works for your RAM - Nice! Did you also adjust the RAM's timings/voltage?

    When it crashed, did it freeze, BSOD, hang or what?

    It went straight to blue screen and dumped the memory. It started back up and I went right back int the bios.
    The ram is still running at 5-5-5-12 and still 2.0v

    Try 5-5-5-18 and 2.1V. Try bumping FSB term up to 1.36 (Keep it below 1.4v or you risk killing your CPU, set your SB to auto).

    Is there a PLL option in your BIOS? Don't forget your extra headroom with CPU voltage. How are temps, btw?

    I'm logging off for now - so do see what you can get done and be sure to post the results back here. Screenshots are encouraged!

    Don't forget the SB voltage!

    Pll not available.
    SB is on auto.
    CPU is 1.36250
    And temps are good 30-36c idleing with above settings.

    Thanks for everything and I'll fill you in on further progress.

    Hey thanks for the help. I made it to 3.86 and seems stable. But I can't make it any higher... If you have any more advise I'd welcome it because I'm kinda lost as to what to do again.

    Thanks again
