Overclocking on this board with an E2180?

Hi there, after hearing that the intel E2180 has great overclocking abilities I bought it to go with my ECS G31T-M motherboard. Most people can get to 3.0 Ghz on stock air cooling but I cant even get to 2.6. 2.55 works fine for hours but after a few minutes of getting into Windows, 2.6 restarts. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what is causing the problem here? My Ram is running at DDR 2 800.

    When its clocked at 2.55 it idles at 39 degrees, so load at max would be 49. I am sure I have sufficient cooling. And as I said, people have been getting 3.0 on this chip no problem, on there stock cooling without any voltage changes. I tried all the bios options but to no avail. There is heat compound on the PC as I bought it pre-built.

    That really sucks but thanks for your help. Now im just gonna have to get some more money together for an E8400

When the CPU overheats it shuts down especially if you overclock it.
Did you put any heatsink compound between the CPU and the heatsink (this aids heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink/fan)?

Your BIOS may have a setting that can adjust the CPU fan speed/temperature.
You can install additional fan/s in the case to draw more air into the computer case.
To further cool the CPU, you might have to install a better and more efficient cooling heatsink/device/fan on the CPU.

    The only thing I can think of is that your CPU is heat sensitive and possibly a bit out of spec.

Im trying to decide what video card to get with this mother im a huge gamer and i play all games from CoD4 to wow. also does this board already come factory overclocked? how do i configure overclocking ?


motherboards do not come overclocked, unless you bought it from a person that has already done that. For overclocking, you go into the BIOS but make sure you have adequate cooling in your machine. When you overclock you want the CPU cooler fan to blow away from the CPU instead of onto it. Also you want more fans blowing out the rear of the case if you have one intake fan in the front, two in the rear/side panel. Overclocking causes more heat, and shortens CPU lifetime. I believe you press F2 at boot to get into BIOS on your motherboard. in the BIOS settings you can change the multiplier, but if it doesn't add up correctly, your computer will just hang instead of boot and try a different setting. Although this mobo supports Hyper-Threading and supports Untied Overclocking Technology, so it should be simpler to overclock rather than some mobos are tricky to get it going right.

As for the graphics card with this board: it's an Intel processor so you need a graphics card made by ATI. I would recommend a Radeon graphics card with this motherboard. The motherboard is compatible with Front Side Bus 1600/1333MHz CPUs, so make sure your Graphics card you select doesn't have a FSB faster than that, otherwise you will be wasting money.

How to overclock gf7050vt-m


Hi mitchmodi,

I would not recommend overclocking that board or other compenant on that board. That board was not designed for overclocking. Changing the voltage and speeds of the CPU could create error or blue screen of deaths on you, as well damage the board itself.

Thanks

I have a intel dg31pr motherboard with e7200 processor.i want to overclock it.plz help me............


Overclocking is something you should only do if you are fairly experienced with computers. Most motherboards that overclock are made for overclocking as are the processors used. Good overclocking requires a balance of increased FSB, multiplier, increased voltage to the ram and sometimes the processor as well, and excellent cooling. It is easy to burn out your system by overclocking. There are many things you should know first. For that reasion alone it is impossible for me to tell you how to overclock it.

But, go to www.extremeoverclocking.com. This is a site made for people who want to overclock. Read and browse through the forums. You will also find some excellent by the numbers guides there. Sigh up and jump in. When you perform your first overclock, come back and tell me. I've been overclocking since 2002.

How to overclock 945GCT-M2/1333 motherboard


Try getting an overclockers BIOS. ECS motherboards don't usually offer the best overclocking support.

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

Overclocking locked on 945gct-m2 mobo


There is no overclocking settings for this motherboard, the CPU speeds and core settings are automatically determined. You may be able to find a modified bios somewhere, but i would strongly suggest this not be done. A bad bios, or bad flash can essentially turn the motherboard into an expensive paperweight.

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB


Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.
