Hi there.
You can change the front side bus in the bios if the bios supports it, if it does be very careful not to overclock the processor to much as you can cause damage to the motherboard and blow the processor up, also bear in mind that cooling is very important when it comes to overclocking.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Hi again.
    If you want to overclock your CPU is suggest you get a Foxconn mobo as these are pretty good when it comes to overclocking.

    Good luck and keep in mind cooling when you do it.

The highest vcore voltage on my intel 2500k


Suggest you try an overclocking forum

All I know, is you bump the Voltage up in SMALL increments.
Bump up a small increment, then do a 24 hour burn in.
(Yes. Means computer runs 24 hours straight for the test)

Everything's cool? Then bump the Voltage up another small increment.
Do another 24 hour burn in test.

GO TOO FAR, and things start getting 'bumpy', and eventually system turns off.
GO TOO MUCH at first, and you stand the chance of frying stuff.

Also; the Ram Memory, and expansion slot frequency rate, support changes, when you change the Voltage for the CPU.

You are changing the CPU's front side bus, also. (FSB)

[Frequency Rate = 'Speed'
People understand the term Speed, so they can relate to what is going on.
It is actually a rudimentary term.
Leaves you not exactly knowing what is going on.

A CPU (Processor) has an Oscillator in it. Operates in a frequency rate.
The Front Side Bus (FSB) is measured in a Frequency Rate.
How many Cycles per Second.

Example; CPU operates Up To a maximum frequency rate of 2.4GigaHertz. (2.4GHz)

Means it can operate Up To a frequency rate of 2.4 Billion Cycles per Second.

Mega = approximately 1 Million
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

(2400MHz = 2.4GHz)

Also:
YOUR processor. The one you have now.
Was made with a BUNCH of other processors.
Intel tests them, and has a pass test range.

YOUR CPU may have been at the Bottom of that range, who knows?
This means YOUR CPU may not be able to be overclocked, like Harry's down the street; or some guy/gal on the internet.

THEY may have received a CPU that was in the Middle of the pass test range, or towards the Top.

Tip

How to tweak your computer


Step 1
Back up important files. This includes impotant datas stored on your computer
Step 2
Update the firmware of your computers BIOS. Also update or patch your OS to the lates update and even your hardware devices must be updated as well.
Step 3
Also before proceeding ,remember to get a BENCHMARK test program that will help you see the changes and also monitor the temp. of your processor after overclocking
Make sure that your BIOS is also set to shutdown once illegal voltage or temp. will be detected
Step 4
Ensure that the CPU FAN is clean and is still calibrated to the right rpm
Step 5
Power on your unit ,hit the hotkey to access setup.On the BIOS go to ADV. CHIPSET option.Then look for"clocks, "frequency/voltage control" or "voltage options." This will look unique on each brand of computer.You can overclock by modifying "CPU bus frequency" or "CPU FSB frequency." Increase this value slightly. In some cases, you will be able to increase your "CPU multiplier" through the BIOS.If your BIOS has none of these options,your motherboard is not capable of overclocking the processor.
Step 6
You can also try overclocking your MEMORY AND VIDEO speed. Some motherboards have this options on the BIOS as well
Step 7
You can consult your motherboards manual to know the operating voltage of your cpu or type in the model of the board on yahoo or google.

1) http://www.cpuid.com/news/58-cpu_z_gigabyte_g1_edition.html

It's CPU-Z from CPUID.com, but made especially for Gigabyte motherboards.

This way when you change a parameter in Voltages, or system bus clock, (FSB), you can see the changes in real time.

2) EasyTune 5 from Gigabyte,

http://gigabyte.com/MicroSite/121/tech_20041125_px_et5.htm

That is just the features, and G.U.I. shown. (Graphics User Interface) The actual download website is below at the bottom link I listed,

http://www.filecluster.com/Drivers/Firmware-Bios/Download-Gigabyte-EasyTune.html

http://www.filecluster.com/downloads/Gigabyte-EasyTune.html

The above is the actual download page.
Where it states 7-Zip info, go to the right, and click on the blue - External Mirror 1 - (Has a green Down Arrow to the right of it.

After you click a small window will come up on the right -
Opening motherboard_utility_gbttools_gbt_et5pro.exe

Click on Save File. Observe the top of the small window that comes up on the left. In the wording at the top of the window tells you where the file will download to.

Go to where it states, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name,
(motherboard_utility_gbttools_gbt_et5pro.exe )

Now follow the directions, and install EasyTune 5.

This is Gigabyte Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual,

http://ee.gigabyte.com/products/page/mb/ga-m61sme-s2l_20/download/manual

REMEMBER;
1) Take -> BABY steps. Change a parameter in small increments.

Change the parameter in one small increment, then let the system (Computer) run for 24 hours. This is a 24 hour burn in test. Pretty accurate, but do not 'stamp it in stone'.

2) You can only overclock so far. Overclocking creates heat. After some time the air cooling you are using, is not going to be adequate.

3) You can only overclock so far because you will be changing the FSB for the Processor. This also changes it for the Ram Memory, and expansion slots.

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the Processor's FSB.
Change the Processor FSB too much, and ram memory will not work.
Neither will the expansion slots. Their frequency rate is determined off of the Processor FSB also.

4) Overclock too much at first, and you risk burning up the motherboard chipset, and Processor, and Ram Memory.

Issue modify vcore for e6300


Really?

Are we talking about the Asus P5LD2-VM motherboard, Zoltan?
(Zoltan is a C-o-o-o-o-l name!)

Because I'm looking at the motherboard manual right now, and state you are mistaken.

1) Use the Right Side Arrow key, and highlight the - Advanced - tab on top of the Main menu.

2) Use the Down Arrow key and highlight -
JumperFree Configuration
Press the Enter key.

Configure System Frequency/Voltage
AI Overclocking - [Auto]

Use the - key, (Minus), and move Auto to Manual
Use the appropriate arrow key, and highlight -
CPU VCore Voltage [ Auto ]
Press the Enter key.

There are 40 Voltages you can choose from.
1.7000Volts to 1.2875Volts.

Remember,
Use SMALL increments at a time. Do a 24 hour stability test.
(Small increment example, 1.7000V to 1.6875V )

If your system is stable for 24 hours, then you can come back, and change the Voltage one more small increment.
(1.6875V to 1.6750V)

Also remember; you are changing the Front Side Bus of the Processor. (FSB)
Change it TOO much, and your ram memory, and expansion slots will not work.

(Ram Memory typically operates at a frequency rate ('Speed'), of half of the FSB of the Processor.
Processor FSB is 800MHz for example? Ram Memory operates at 400MegaHertz.

Intel Core2 Duo E6300? 1066MegaHertz Front Side Bus.
{1066MHz FSB}
Ram memory? 533MHz)

Overclock problem


Hi there, the freezing is probably caused by the north-bridge or CPU not getting enough voltage or becuase you are pushing your memory past the supported frequency, changing the FSB also changes the frequency of memory, overclocking a machine could also boost the temps past the point of conventional air cooling e.g might have to use water-cooling instead. You should be careful when you overclock your computer though, electronics are sensitive and you are going to cause permanent damage to either the board or CPU. I would rather advise you to return all values to default and continue to use the system normally, if you really need it to go faster rather go and buy a faster machine. b.t.w changing the PCI-e value will have no effect on your FSB and memory values, it could instead have an adverse effect on your graphics card if you have one installed

I cant overclock my system but i go to bios now whati had to do


The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System or Binary Integrated Operating System). There are also some motherboards that let you do a basic increase in power by setting a jumper, but this is dangerous and you have no real stability control.


There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST

(Power On Self Test - when it shows the RAM size, processor speed, etc.).


Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier (also referred to as CPU Clock Ratio).

Clearing your CMOS. Sometimes, an overclock can become unstable. If this happens, or your computer will not boot, you will need to reset the BIOS back to default and start over again.


This is done by clearing the CMOS (a small piece of memory on the motherboard which stores your BIOS configuration, and is powered by a small battery). Some newer motherboards will bypass user settings in the CMOS if the computer fails POST (often caused by a faulty overclock). However, most motherboards require a manual clear.


This can be done in two ways, depending on your motherboard. The first way is by changing the position of the clear CMOS jumper on your motherboard, waiting a few minutes, then repositioning the jumper to its original place.


The CMOS Jumper

The second way, if your motherboard doesn't have this jumper, consists of unplugging your computer, removing the little CMOS battery, then pressing the power button (your capacitors will discharge), and waiting a couple of minutes.


Then you have to refit the battery and plug in your computer. Once your CMOS is cleared, all BIOS settings are reset back to default and you'll have to start the overclocking process all over again. Just so you know, this step is only necessary if your overclock becomes unstable.


Locked or Unlocked. The first thing to know when you start the process of overclocking, is whether your processor is multiplier locked or unlocked.

To check whether your CPU is locked, lower your multiplier via the BIOS one step, for example from 11 to 10.5. Save and exit your BIOS and your computer will restart.


If your computer posts again and shows the new CPU speed, it means your CPU is unlocked. However, if your computer failed to post (screen remains black) or no CPU speed change is present, this means your multiplier is locked


Multiplier Unlocked Processors. Usually, your max overclock is limited by your memory, or RAM. A good starting place is to find the top memory bus speed in which your memory can handle while keeping it in sync with the FSB. To check this, lower your CPU multiplier some steps (from 11 to 9, for example) and increase your FSB a few notches (e.g.: 200 MHz to 205 MHz).


After this, save and exit your BIOS. There are a few ways to test for stability.

If you make it into Windows, that is a good start. You can try running a few CPU / RAM intensive programs to stress these components. Some good examples are SiSoft Sandra, Prime95, Orthos, 3DMark 2006 and Folding@Home.


You may also choose to run a program outside of Windows, such as Memtest. Load a copy of Memtest onto a bootable floppy, then insert the disk after you have exited the BIOS.

Continue to increase your FSB until Memtest starts reporting errors. When this happens, you can try to increase the voltage supplied to your memory.


Do note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your memory. Also, another option is to loosen the timings on the memory (more on this a bit later). The previous FSB setting before the error will be your max FSB. Your max FSB will fully depend on what memory you have installed. Quality, name-brand memory will work best for overclocking.


Now that you know your max FSB, you'll figure out your max multiplier. Keeping your FSB @ stock, you raise your multiplier one step at a time. Each time you restart, check for system stability. As mentioned above, one good way to do this is by running Prime95.


If it doesn't post (reread the section about clearing the CMOS), or Prime 95 fails, you can try to raise the core voltage a bit. Increasing it may or may not increase stability. On the other hand, the temperature will also be increased. If you are going to increase the core voltage, you should keep an eye on temperatures, at least for a few minutes.


Also note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your CPU, not to mention void your warranty. When your computer is no longer stable at a given multiplier setting, lower your multiplier one step and take that as your max multiplier.


Now that you have your max FSB speed and your max multiplier, you can play around and determine the best settings for your system. Do note that having a higher FSB overclock as opposed to a higher multiplier will have a greater impact on overall system performance.

Overclocking aopenax4b-533 mobo


In some motherboards, you can increase the multiplier, which will increase your processor speed.(Briefly, Processor Speed = FSB x Multiplier) You can also increase the chipset, memory, and CPU voltage, which will sometimes allow you to have a higher FSB. There are other settings such as PCI Bus and AGP Bus, you generally don't want to touch those, either they might put risk to your PC, or that they won't make much difference in performance. Be careful when you overclock because you can really damage your computer that way.

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.

I am tryin to upgrade my processor on my 4000783 gateway motherboard need to change my fsb speed and dont know how


You cannot change your fsb. You need to upgrade to a cpu with a fsb speed that your board can support. Once you install the new cpu your bios will set the fsb to the higher setting of your new cpu if your board supports it. If you have your board specs it will tell you something like supports fsb 1066/800. That would mean you could upgrade to a supported 1066 fsb cpu. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
