DS3 & E6400 - An Overclocking Guide for people who don't want to

I hope to get my E6300 and DS3 setup going on the weekend if I have enough time after installing a new watercooling setup into my gaming box.

I'll let you know if your instructions do well.

This works perfectly. I just have a couple of questions about my setup though....

After doing these tweaks my idle temp is over 60 according to Coretemp and 55ish according to Speedfan v4.3.
After reverting to Optimal settings Coretemp shows 45degrees and SpeedFan 30degrees

For some reason the bios says my fans are 0rpm (with or without OC tweaks), as does Speedfan (it says 3 fans are 0rpm, although not sure if mobo is supported yet).




My specs are...

C2D 6400
GA-965P-S3 (F5 bios)
2GB Corsair 667Mhz
Netzteil LC-Power 550W ATX SATA 12cm Fan
Xilence CPU-Cooler LGA 775 HEATPIPE Solution
INTEL Silent Cooler inkl. Umbau
the case has a HUGE fan built into it (must be about 25cm)

I dont know much about cooling but I would have thought this would do the job.

Does anyone know why the fans would be showing as 0rpm?
and also why are my temps 60 idle?

Cheers all

Sounds like your cooler isn't mounted correctly, with anything decent your temps would be more like 55 under full load at most. Take it out and mount it again, make sure you use the right amount of thermal paste (grain of rice size if it's arctic silver, a bit more if it's something else. Not too much as paste is less efficient than metal, it just fills the gaps).

If you think it is mounted properly, then crank a stability test and when it's been under full load for a few minutes, touch as close to the base of the heatsink with your finger as you can. If it's warm to hot, it's doing it's job. If it's cool or barely warm, it's not. Coretemp isn't always absolutely accurate but the current temps are worth investigating. I would not run it at that speed for extended periods of time because if it's 60 while idle, it's almost certainly 70-75 or higher under load - not too good for it's long term survival.

AMD Samporn 3000 1.8Ghz which is capable of overclocking at good speeds such as 3.4GHz, I have overclocked it with no problems at all it is cooled fine

thanks glenn you were spot on.

The knob who put the PC together didnt peel off the plastic cover on the heatsink and put the thermal paste directly onto the plastic. After taking the plastic off and reapplying paste temps are 53 in Speedfan and 62 in Coretemp under full load. I hope Speedfan is the accurate one!!

Nice post.

I have an issue with my DS3 and the CPU Host Clock Control 'Enable' setting not allowing a boot up (known problem with lots of people, reason unkown) but I have successfully got 3700MHz out of my E6400 now just by upping the BUS to 338MHz.

These E6400s are very noice!!!

This settings seemed to work under F6 Bios.. but once I upgraded to F7, it no longer works well (Prime95 fails, sometimes I can't go to windows, etc)

Anyone else encounter this problem with F7 Bios?

OzStriker == do you mean 2700MhZ? (338 MhZ x 8)

The settings tantryl laid out worked for me alright on the F7 BIOS with my E6300. I got it to 415*7 for 2905MHz (damn low multi!) before trying 429*7 to get the magical 3GHz figure which locked up the system :(

Is there a correct procedure for clearing the BIOS on this motherboard? After it locked up and I hit the reset button it wouldn't power up. So I tried putting a jumper on the clear bios pins above the battery, but to no effect.

In the end I pulled out the bios battery for a min or two, replaced it, powered up then went about changing all the bios options back. Is there a better way to restore default settings?

I am new to OCing and would like some help. I have a Genuine Intel® P965 Chipset Motherboard with DDR2, PCI Express motherboard, so which BIOs flash should I do? I guess after I figure this out I'll be able to follow this guide. Here's my rig:
CPU: 6400
RAM: 2GB PC5300 (667mhz)
Video: 7900GTO
MO: Genuine Intel® P965 Chipset Motherboard with DDR2, PCI Express

Any help you all can give would be much appreciated.

Yes I meant 2700MHz thanks Lyon.

I am now running stable at 2920MHz 365x8, using EasyTune to O/C as I still cannot enable the CPU host clock control in BIOS F7.

Most impressive is my 2GB of Corsair 5400 C4 RAM which is happily running at 730MHz 4-4-4-12 with +.1V.

I am very impressed with this combo, I have not yet tried dropping my RAM timings but I hope with 5-5-5-15 I can break 3GHz.

I cant find my written down 3dmark06 scores but I will post them when I find them, the increased CPU speed makes a considerable improvement to the CPU score.

what motherboard have u got? the instructions given was made for a gigabyte 965p series motherboard, eventhough your motherboard has the same chipset, the bios menus might be different

to give you an example for temperatures
my cpu idles at 44-41 degrees, i have a e6300 running @ 2.80 ghz now i found the F4 bios to be the best for the gigabyte 965 series motherboards, underload it goes to 58-58 degrees, im using a zalman 9500cu and as5.

drewin, add me to msn and i'll do my best to guide you

I'm getting my new Velocity computer in here shortly... When I actually get it I'll probably take you up on taking me step by step through OCing. All the Velocity website has for my MO is what I listed above: Genuine Intel® P965 Chipset Motherboard with DDR2, PCI Express. I'm guess this MO is probably very OCable since this MO is on several Velocity machines. Maybe the paper work that will come with the machine will have more information.

Excellent guide...

I bought an e6400 after seeing this guide, and after hearing about how easily it could be overclocked. Sure enough, when I followed the guide, I got the expected results. After also overclocking my graphics card, I got higher scores on 3dmark than a friend of mine who bought an e6600! Thanks again for the guide!

i would like to thank tantryl for getting this up on atomic as it helped me greatly with my overclocking .

boris jr now runs at 2.6Ghz stable on the brand new F9 bios that just came out.

Your guide to overlocking your 6400 was what i've been serching for for days. I am getting the rest of my parts in tomorrow and wanted to know if you'd help me. I happened to buy the same mobo, just 1 thing different
http://tw.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2321 (think it's the pcix16 vs picx1)

also i have the corsair xms2 ddr2 pc6400 800mhz ram and the geforce 7950 gt ko (factory overlocked 600mhz core and 1450mhz ram) and i bought an aftermarket 20 dollar cpu fan (air cooled)

is it possible i can get a bit more without breaking anything ^.^ was thinking about 3.2-3.5ish? would need some settings help though if you wouldn't mind, this will be my first attempt at oc
