Overclocking a E7200

Well i just finished playing around a bit with my E7200 on a ASUS P5Q pro mobo.

this is what i managed so far on air cooling.

Speed 3562mhz
Multi 9.5
Bus speed 375
Rated FSB 1500
Vcore 1.35v

Cooling is done by a Coolermaster Gemini II and 2 x 120mm AC fans.
Ram i have is Corsair DDR2 800 XMS sitting fine at 940mhz


I managed to get a little more from it when i upped the volts to 1.5 and i also put the nb and sb up a touch too but even then the best i got was 385 fsb stable but the temps started to climb into the mid 60's so i put it back to 375 and its stays at around 50c under full load.

I may try lowering the multiplier later and try getting a bit more out of the FSB. Will see if time permits.


Is this a fair OC for this chip or should i be able to squeeze a little more from it? If so what would you recommend?

Cheers.

Mate that is awesome. I'm getting my little bro the same chip and glad to know it does 3.6GHz. Enjoy the performance :D

Well i have been having a bit more of a play tonight with the clocks of my E7200.

I have now managed a fair 4180mhz out of a 2530mhz cpu on air cooling.

I think that there is still a bit more headroom yet as it seems stable so far.

is it prime/orthos stable? oh and use real temp as core temp is not that great with the 45nm chips

If you can get it 1 hour OCCT stable, you will win a medal.

Or at least a plaque or something ;)

Ok well i have so far managed to get it OCCT stable at 4038mhz.

That is with vcore at 1.35v.

Will try a little more voltage and try for a little more speed. Might nearly be time to go water cooling as temps are getting up there with my current air cooling.

Impressive result. The Coolermaster cooler you are using is impressive size wise- but most of the reviews I've read on it have it performing a little on the average side. What made you choose it? (not having a go, just interested)

looks awesome :P

try dropping the multi and see what fsb you can get to.

my nb heatsink was holding me back, and 3.1ghz seems as far as the cpu itself want to go but with a IFX nb cooler i managed to push 380 fsb :D

Not sure why i choose it, Was a while ago now. I have got my water cooling gear now and am running a q6700 but still have the 7200 chip here so i will have to put it back in and see what i can get with it now.
