I saw a topic about somebody else overclocking his E6320 and you guys we''re all so helpful that I hoped you could give me a hand too. I recently bought a demo pc(used as demo in some show in paris). Because I haven't reinstalled XP Prof. I don't know the exact specs yet but I know a few things and maybe that is enough, I will post full specs in about 3 hours anyway.
Intel E6320 processor, 4mb cache, 1.86ghz
Nvidia 8800GT videocard(I think its a sparkle card I will check it in a few hours)
2x 1024mb 'Turbo' memory (I think 1066mhz but I will check it in a few hours)
I think either a Intel P635 or P935 chipset on a intel motherboard(will post full specs in a few hours)
Giga-byte case with both liquid and air cooling. I got 3 big vents on the backside, 1 on the front side and 1 on top of the processor. Furthermore I got 4 cables with cooled liquid going over and under the graphical card and on beween the 2 internal memory chips. So I think I have superior cooling for overclocking. Its the Gigabyte 36Aurora570 case.
500w power supply
I got little experience in overclocking anything, so I don't know w/e I should overclock mutltiple parts or just the CPU or RAM?!
As I said, will post more system specs in a few hours! Thanks in advance!
Didn't know they just sold a PC after a show. How much did you get it for?
By the way, it doesn't sound like you got water cooling for your CPU. What heatsink is on your cpu?
I got it in exchange for working two weeks(during my holiday) 40 hrs a week. The new price would be around 800-900 euro.
Click here for a screenshot from the temperatures during normal operations. Temp1/2/3 are sensors in the case. HD0 = the hd ofcourse. Core 0 and 1 are the processors. Core and Ambient are graphical cards
The exact specs:
Processor: Intel Core Duo E6320 currently at 1.86ghz
Mobo: Jetway 966PDAG(E)
Bios: Phoenix Awardbios 6.00
Internal memory: Kingston Valueram 2x 512mb (planning to upgrade to a total of 2gb with 1 extra 1gb memory card)
Graphical card: NVIDIA Geforce 8800GT 512mb
Harddisk: 250gb 7200rpm
Case/cooling: Gigabyte 3DAURORA 570
Power: 500 watt
Again thanks in advance!
EDIT: I managed to oc it to 2.1ghz with a Vcore of 1.46~ volt. When I try to go further I can see some blue screen for half a second and than it reboots. Please help!
Never head much of Jetway. Not sure how good they are for overclocking.
2.1GHz @ 1.46V is pretty high in voltage for a slight overclock. At 2.1GHz, what is your temperatures in idle and full load? Also, is 1.46V what you set in the BIOS or is that number you gave us already accounting for the voltage drop?
Also, is your FSB and memory speed linked? If they are, then your memory is holding your overclock back and probably causing the blue screens. Unlink them so that your memory stays at the manufacturer's specified speed while you can let loose on the FSB.
