e7300 overclocking?

Hi all,

I'll soon be playing with a e7300 based setup, aiming for a tidy 4ghz on air.

Has anyone else around here had a crack at overclocking these 10x multi beasts? I'd be interested to hear what setups / volts / temps etc people are using.

No-one? Oh well, looks like I'll be the first around here.

Will post up results when I have them.

Cannot wait to see your results. You should get 4ghz easy with it. Compared to the E8xxx series you might have to increase volts early on to get a 4Ghz clock. But meh .....

this link shows a E7300 clocked to 4.4Ghz on air.

Well, the system is together, specs as follows:

e7300
GA-EP45-DS3P (F7 Bios)
2 x 2GB Corsair Dominator 8500C5D 5-5-5-15 @ 1066mhz
Thermalright 120 Ultra A / AC5 / AC Ryan Blackfire 120mm

Initial results haven't been as high as I'd hoped- I suspect I just need to play around more with the clock skews and stuff like that. As it stands:

3.2ghz- Tested and stable, 1.3v vcore
3.4ghz- POSTs and boots into Windows but not stable
3.55ghz- POSTs but won't boot into Windows

I've tested up to 1.35v for the vcore- seems to be undervolting a little so I need to take this into account.

The P45 chipset seems to be a very different beast for overclocking compared to my old setup (GA-965P-DS3P, e6420). It was fairly easy to have the e6420 running at 1ghz over stock speeds and remaining perfectly stable. Best case- I just have more to tweak to get the most out of the chip. Worst case- my particular e7300 isn't an awesome clocker (even so, 3.2ghz is a good result- I'm just hoping for more).

More to come.

Hmmmmmmm ... you have an old 965P chipset.

See if you can overclock your E7300 on that instead. Might be able to get better results.

You should be hitting 4Ghz easy with that chip.

Might be RAM. What is your ratio at?

1:1?

Well, 45nm CPUs aren't officially supported on the 965P chipset- Gigabyte do have a beta bios that allows it but I've heard it isn't the most stable thing.

I adjust the ratio so that my ram is always running at it's rated specs- 5-5-5-15 2T 1066mhz @ 2.1v, so I don't think that's the issue.

Not to worry, I'm sure there's something obvious I'm missing that is holding me back. I've checked all the normal stuff- volts and temps are fine. Just needs more trial and error.

That said, if anyone has any protips for overclocking this kind of setup feel free to let me know.

Giver it a little more voltage. I had my e7200 @ 1.4v and also try upping your NB and SB voltage a little. I had mine set to 1.2 each.

Just watch your temps.

The saga continues.

I was able to bench Orthos for around 2.5 hours at 3.4ghz before it had an error. Have been playing around with the ref. and termination voltages and clock skews- it it proving to be very tricky to get the right mix of settings. I'm making progress, it is just slow going.

I think I just had it too easy with my last setup. Basically just up the vcore and FSB and an instant 1ghz overclock could be had. Not so with this setup.

Thats ashame ...


I really did expect that it could do pretty well fairly easy considering your setup as well :(

All is not lost! :)

11 hours OCCT stable at 3.4ghz. And don't worry- I'll be pushing for more :)

I admit it hasn't been as easy as I would have liked, but I like a challenge so it's not all bad.

I'll see about getting some pics up sometime soon if people are interested- bios settings, my setup etc.

Well, it looks like 3.4ghz is about the most I can get out of this chip if I want stability. A little disappointing, but that is the overclocking game- luck of the draw I guess. Looks like I just got a chip that doesn't clock quite as well as some others.

I do happen to have a e7200 on the way though, so we'll see how that goes :) I'll keep whichever of the two clocks the best in my main rig, and the other one can replace the 1.8ghz celeron that currently lives in my lan pc.
