View Full Version : Overclocking Woes...!
Basically, ive got an MSI 865GM3-LS and a Celeron D320 (2.4) :o , and 512mb of ddr 333 crucial ram.
I went into bios and increased my fsb from 133 to 135, then rebooted, and it said "system boot failure..." etc, so i went into bios to see that my SATA hard drive wasnt being seen... went into further options and found out that the onboard sata had been disabled. i enabled it and tried again, to the same result. 133 to 135 is hardly anything really.. what could be causing this ?
any info muchly appreciated!!
If your system isn't running hot you could try increasing the voltage to the CPU and/or memory.
that ram shud be at 166 anyway so in effect it's underclocked... but then i whats the FSB of the CPU? (sorry amd guy here not intel) maybe its a figure, try 166. also are there "safe mode" jumpers on that mobo?
my cpu clock is set at 133
spread spectrum is at 0.25%
agp pci clock at 66/33
agp power voltage at 1.50v
i havent got any options to overclocking my memory :confused:
cpu fsb to 166.. if the ram is 333 then the fsb shud be 166
the max i can do is 165, if i even up the fsb by 1, it knocks out my sata hard drive. i heard that if you have SATA and are trying to overclock - you are going to have problems, unless u "lock" your sata ports or something??
Jamez that is entirely correct. Intel SATA ports are notoriously bad for overclocking problems. If you have a secondary SATA controller. I.E. Promise it should work better becuase it generally has its own lock. Although you have to understand that no over clock is guaranteed and at 165 fsb you would already have gotten about a 20 % overclock
wow.. neva new about sata problems o/c'ing.. learn something new everyday :D
ps. happy birthday jamie :)
its only with intel controlers on some chipsets i didnt have no problem on the 925x chipset but had with 915
As an aside and to illustrate overclocking problems in general.
I tried overclocking my Athlon64 3200+ from 200fsb to 205fsb. Everything was fine except it regularly crashed with USB problems, every USB device (mouse, printer and wireless adaptor) had problems at the increased fsb. There is no PCI/AGP lock option on my motherboard, and I'm assuming the USB devices I have can't handle the increase in 'pressure'.
