Default e2180 Overclock Questions

Okay.. here's what i have going on:

My e2180 will get close to 3ghz on stock voltage. Past 3 I really have to crank up the vCore to get it stable. So I changed the modifier from 10x to 9x and increased the fsb. Right now I'm stable at:


(350 x 9) 3.150Ghz vcore = 1.4215v fsb = +.1v
NB = +.2v
DRAM = +.4v

Memory is 4-4-4-12 @700mhz 1:1 ratio.


So right now my memory is underclocked but in a 1:1 ratio. Would it be better to change the ratio from 1:1 and go for like 800+ mhz on my ram ? If so what ratios work best with my system ?

sry i'm a noob.

All depends, 1:1 ratio on memory is somewhat overrated. I would just get a stable cpu overclock, then start adjusting the memory modifier until you find what the highest OC ont he memory is, and go with that.

Like veedub said, try to get a stable cpu overclock first. Find your max, that way you know its not the memory that isn't letting you go further. Take the ram out of the equation.

ugz . that overclock wasn't stable. I backed it down to 280 x 10 at stock voltage for now. I guess I'll put the ram back to stock timings and try to push some more later. I think that either I didn't get a "good" chip or it just doesn't work well with my set up because some ppl get to 3.2 on stock and 3.4 @ 1.4125. Where as I have a lot of trouble getting above 3ghz.


Couple more noob questions:

I noticed the voltages in everest and cpu-z are reading like .04 less than what I set them to in bios. I'm not sure what to make of that.



Also. Should I worry about restarting my computer 1000 times in two days ?

Do you know what stepping you have for the e2180. M0 stepping product code end in sla8y. Look on the box

I'm pretty sure that all of the 21X0 chips are m0 stepping.

hrm. I guess i just got unlucky with this cpu. It's only a mediocre overclocker compared to the ones i read about.

3.0 @ 1.3625v
3.1 @ 1.41857v
3.2 @ 1.48(too hot for me)

There were L2 steppings out too for e2140 and the e2160, Don't know if E2180 had one or not

e2180's are guaranteed M0 steppings.. the other ones depending on the date they were made can be either L2 or M0

After July 22nd: e2140s and e2160's are M0's

b4 then: L2..

but nowadays you are really likely to get an m0 one..
