How do my overclocks look?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Im pretty new to this overclocking... especially with my new intel(just switched from AMD)... after looking about on the net and afew days messing with the bios i finally got round to overclocking(what i think is the right way lol) anyways im after some people that actually know how to overclock intels correctly to tell me if this looks ok and if theres anything i could change to better it!..... it runs stable and the temps in the pic(below)are idle temps!

I have it set as follows....

FSB - 333
DRAM Frequency - 833MHz
Memory Voltage - 2.00v
CPU VCore Voltage - 1.4000v
(Everything else in the bios is on auto)

Does every thing look ok?(safe)

Any input is grateful....

UPDATE:

Well i managed to get the Memory Voltage down to 1.95v and stable, if i lower the voltage any lower my system hangs at boot!

Do you think the memory is ok overclocked that far(832MHz)? it normally runs at 667MHz!

How do you test for stability

I would use core temp to check temperatures not pc probe.
And going by pc probe if your cores are really 40c. That is at 2 Ghz. Not 3 Ghz.
Running at 3 Ghz is going to be hotter.

Cpu-Z says 1996mhz.

I can only assume you have cpu throttling options enabled in the bios.
What they do is when your cpu isn't being used, it lowers the clock speed. Conserves power and heat when the cpu isn't in use.
When you do need the power, the clock speed increases.

Is there anyway i can disable this cpu throttling option in the bios so i can try afew tests?.... what option will it be under in the bios?

How long is needed to run intel thermal analysis tool for?...i ran it for 15mins with 100% workload level and neither core past 56c at 3000MHz!

I checked in the power options in the control panel and set the power schemes to minimal power management and this is what happened...

As you can see in the first picture(my first post)it says the cpu is running at 3.0GHz where as with minimal power management it runs at 1.98GHz.....

intel thermal analysis tool says the same thing 3000MHz with home/office desk and 2000MHz with minimal power management

Disable C1E Enhanced Halt State, will stop CPU Throttling. You can reach 3.0GHz without any voltage increase at all.

If it doesn't pass Orthos it ain't stable;)

I like to run it for a day (24h) to make sure but most are happy with 8+ hours.

Agreed, it has to pass orthos for at least 8 hours.

Thanks ill give that a try tonight(overnight)and see what happenes!

After disabling C1E Support(cpu throttling)in the bios i ran the intel thermal analysis tool for 20-30 mins and the temps didnt go past 60c with 100% workload(and the central heating on, its cold here in england lol)!.... the cpu sits idle at around 45c! are these temps normal for a 3.0GHz overclock?

Idles higher then mine but it don't reach as high of a core temp as mine. Mine idles at 40c, and on load gets around 44-56c depending on what I am doing to load it. Encoding a DVD Video its about 47c.

On that digital thing yeah at around 70c if I have it O/C. It climbs up to 65c. I need better cooling.

Run that Orthos test and get back to us. :)

Just some advice for the longrun, in case you find you have more headroom in your chip (which you likely will): make sure that you keep your fsb and memory running 1:1 ratio (look in CPU-z) (also do you have the latest version of CPUZ? The clocks are off, from your dropped multiplier)

you can also run a higher fsb with a lower multi (which it looks like you are doing), Conroes get quite a boost from having higher bus speeds.
but your maximum performance will always be the highest FSB you can acheive with a 1:1 ratio.
