|As kuwese said, we need to the memory speed. The memory should be adjusted to run in sync with the CPU. In other words, if the CPU frequency is 276MHz, the RAM frequency should also be 276MHz. That is known as having a 1:1 ratio. |
Here's your board specs & manual:
Overclocking should be done in the BIOS, not thru software.
- set the DRAM frequency to 266MHz DDR2-533
- set the Ratio CMOS Setting to 9 (this is a temp setting)
- Intel SpeedStep = disabled
- Overclock Mode = manual
- CPU Frequency (MHz) = 333
- PCIe Frequency (MHz) = 100
There should be no reason to mess with voltages at this point. If the above settings are correct, the CPU will run at 3.0GHz @ 1333MHz FSB with the RAM running in sync as DDR2-667. I realize that the overall CPU clock speed only increased a small amount, but the FSB is now running 25% faster. To increase the CPU clock speed, all you need to do is increase the Ratio CMOS Setting. Try 9.5 (3.17GHz) or 10 (3.33GHz). If it becomes unstable with either of these settings, increase the CPU voltage slightly & try again.
Use CPUZ to double check & confirm your settings:
