Needing some advice from the Bios and Hardware Masters here:
Firstly.. here are my specs on where we are now:
Power Supply: OCZ GamerXtreme 700WCode:CPU Used: Conroe E6700 Retail B2 Motherboard: Asus P5W DH (1301 Bios) My Current Settings: AI Overclocking: Manual :D CPU Frequency: 350 DRAM Frequency: DDR2-1050Mhz Preformance Mode: Auto PCI Express Frequency: Auto PCI Clock Synchonization Mode: Auto Memory Voltage: 2.20V CPU VCore Voltage: 1.5000V FSB Termination Voltage: 1.40V MCH Chipset Voltage: 1.55V ICH Chipset Voltage: Auto RAM Used: OCZ DDR2 PC2-8000 Platinum Extreme Edition Dual Channel 1000MHz DDR2 Recommended: CL 4-5-4-15 2.2 Volts (use a VDIMM of 2.25V Â± 5%) My Current Settings: Dram Cas# Latency: 4 Dram Ras# PreCharge: 5 Dram Ras# to Cas# Delay: 4 Dram Ras# Activate to Precharge: 15 Dram Write Recovery Time: 4 CPU temp @ 3.5Ghz (Idle 38c, Load: 41-42c) Cooler: Scythe Mine + Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Paste Motherboard temp @ 3.5Ghz (Idle 33c, Load ~35c)
Now my question -
With the above CPU and Memory.. Is there more room for both to improve? What should I be watching for above to push to 3.6Ghz (which is VERY high for a E6700)? How am I doing sofar with the above?
FYI: With the above settings, I'm seeing errors in the 16M and 32M tests for the SuperPI tests as well as the Go-Orthos-Beta. I gather this is normal for my settings as I need to tweak them. Any thoughts everyone? Any areas I should be specifically tweaking to allievate errors?
Thanks all.. comments and advice VERY WELCOME!
