    P5B Deluxe O/C Help

    My sons friend asked me to build him a computer since I've built them before but, it's been a few years so I need some advice on overclocking.

    ASUS P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP
    Patriot eXtreme Performance 2GB (2 x 1GB)
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz
    SAPPHIRE 100186L Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit

    I would like to get this running around 3000 Mhz if the stock H/S will take it. There are alot of settings and it gets confusing can someone please simplify these for me.
    Thanks

    This should be all you really need to know for the most part to get started with OC a P5B Deluxe: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=115217

    Set the memory to 1:1 which is the slowest option available on the P5B Deluxe. If you're going to be keeping the stock hsf maybe running the chip at 2.8ghz might be better in the long run if its for somebody elses system and 400fsb should be easily possible for the chipset and cpu without having to adjust any voltages other than what the memory may require.

    I personally found that around 3ghz the temps really started to climb fast and high with the stock hsf but as with anything YMMV.

    Make sure to run memtest86 to test the ram to avoid chasing gremlins, I'm quite amazed at how much faulty ram out of the box I have gotten in the past couple years.

    Re: P5B Deluxe O/C Help

    Thanks for the reply. I messed with the settings and was able to get it to 2.8. The temps went to 68c running prime 95 so I ordered a Zalman http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118003. The 1:1 ratio does not say 1:1 in the newest Bios so I'm still confused when I read something about that. Thanks for the link it does help but voltages are still murky. I'm hoping to get this o/c'ed to around 3.2 and again I'm not sure how to set the FSB at 457x7 and adjust the Dram frequency to match since there are preset ( DDR2-800 or DDR2-1066 and a couple lower ones) and then there's the ram settings what ever happened to 2.2.3.2.2T

    It's been a while since I was in the bios tinkering but the slowest memory setting you can set will be 1:1 with the P5B's and the actual memory speed is what the bios reports based on what you have the fsb set to.

    You can always download a copy of CPUZ and check to see what memory ratio you are running as well.

    The memory timings should enter in how they are listed, 4-4-4-12 is what I run my memory and they have it arranged in that fashion in the bios as well, with intel chipsets I think they all default to 2T as well. I haven't really tinkered with all the other memory timings, I just didn't feel it was worth the effort tweaking considering Intels prefetch & caching does such a great job.

    As for you temps you might want to replace the TIM that came on the stock hsf with some AS5, that should help with temps some if you haven't done so already.

    Personally I'm currently using the thermalright ultra120 and I'm getting around 68C under dual prime load at 3.6ghz and 1.5vcore.
