hey im new here

i have this mobo gigabyte 965g ds3

that include the graphic card build in

and i oc it to 2.4ghz from 1.8ghz [ i have e4300]

its stable but i want to overclock it to 3ghz

and start to get unstable

Code:
[email protected] OC stock air Fan
mobo 965G ds3

CPU Host Frequency (MHz)_________ [266]
PCI Express Frequency (Mhz)_______ [100]
System Memory Multiplier (SPD)_____ [2.66]
CPU Clock Ratio (Note)____________ [X9]
Memory________________________ [800]
Timing_________________________[5-5-5-15]
System Voltage Control___________ [manual]
all Normal
Vcore 1.200



CPU DualCore Intel Core 2 Duo E4300

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-965G-DS3

Tmos Twister 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM

btw if i get external graphic card i would get better oc like 965P?

Hello


you will find you need to get a better cpu cooler than the stock version of you want to squeeze your cpu to its full potential

also you will need memory thats capbale of tigher timings; such as the corsair XMS gamer memory 4-4-4-12

although if you are using onboard video its not going to do you much good to overclock to the end capabilities of your system as onboard video doesnt have the capability to keep pace with a stock cpu while gaming ?



you will need to bump your ram voltage to 2.1 volts and your cpu to 1.45 if you want the next level of performance / not sure if your memory is going to cooperate ??

you will also need to use orthos and memtest to very stable >>>> just booting into windows is not proof of stability by a long shot!!

each time you increase your overclock run orthos for at least and hour and monitor temps same with memtest

to prove a system stable it should be able to run orthos and memtest each for two hours without overheating or memory erros ??

your motherboard should also support adding a PCI express video card such as the 8600GT

YES the 965P is a better clocker than the "G" the 965P actually overclocks about as good as any system can right now.

just out of curiosity, have you verfied that your CPU is the culprit holding you back from better performance?



my "guess" here is you are "seeing" things while gaming such as lags and jerkyness which you would like to improve ????

you need to check your cpu usuage during an intense gaming session, if you are not using all your cpu power now, then increasing that is not going to help much

however if your cpu is at 100% usuage for more that one second here and there; then overclocking wil help that

but I dont see any onboard video solution as keeping pace with any cpu with more ability than the E2160 ?????

until you give your input with what you are "seeing" I am going to guess your bottleneck is at your video level ? the 8800 GT will cure that >>>> LOL

try that, run orthos for at least one hour / abort the orthos test if the cpu gets above 60C temps

your vdimm voltage should be set to 2.1 volts ???? (you may need to update your bios to get this setting ??????)

post back with results

leave PCI clock alone as GotOwned has stated :pray:

your cpu should then be 275 x 9 =2475

if that passes stress test then onward to 280

I would update your bios to F9 then we can proceed from their

the instructions are on the website with the bios
