E7200 @ 3.05ghz

I know these chips have been able to go much further then I've pushed mine so far. At the moment I'm now at 9.5 x 321 on stock volts. I have my memory running at 800Mhz, which I'm comfortable with.

 

Right now, I have no noticable change in temps (Real Temp is reporting that Idle is 29/30C and Load (using Orthos) is 42/43C).

 

Two questions:

 

1) Will overclocking my memory yeild any noticable improvements. Is 4-4-4-12 @ 800Mhz better then 5-5-5-15 @ 900?

 

2) Cpu Volts, Intel says the threshold for my VID Voltage Range is 0.85V

You wont see any gain between those two memory settings. If you're going to be trying to overclock more and more, leave the higher timings for now. You dont want to limit your OC because your ram settings are too tight.

 

If it fails to boot, notch your voltage up in more of a coarse manner. Maybe two or three or 5 (depending on how small the increments in the BIOS are) notches, you can always change it later, and right now you have quite a bit of headroom. If you're getting BSOD or windows instability, then notch it up by single increments to get it fine-tuned. I would say dont go above 1.35v, but dont quote me on that. More than likely though you'll reach temperature limits before you reach a voltage limit, so you should be OK.

 

Let us know how it goes :D

1.) No. 2.)set your vcore to as high as your comfortable with. Just because Intel lists a range does not mean cpus can't operate outside of it. Now common sense plays a role here too. As far as your board, its a feature of the chipsets. It still does not mean stability is assured if your board boots into windows.
