E6400 overclock on P5W DH

Ive done a good 2 hours overclocking and id like to show you my results. Hopefully i could also be helped to squeeze a little more outta this e6400?

My motherboard is an Asus P5W DH and i have 2 Gigs of SuperTalent DDRII 667mhz RAM.

The highest overclock i have got so far is shown in the screenshot below, with proof;



Ive tried everything to get this chip higher but it wont budge past 430 FSB. Is this the board/RAM/CPU limiting it?

Ive tried;

430x8 - RAM 645mhz (Wont Post)

425x8 - RAM 850mhz@2.3v - CPU@1.5v (Wont Post)

430x7 - RAM 645mhz (Still No Post)

So far this is my highest stable overclock;

400x8 - 3200mhz - RAM 800mhz

The strange thing is that it doesnt just become unstable... it wont post at all.

Anyone got any ideas to help me budge it a little higher? Or have i come to the limit now? :P

Alternatively, has anyone got a higher OC out of a P5W DH and an e6400??

I have got my E6400 up to 3.6ghz, but i cant get into windows, or should i say I am to lazy to figure out the problem.....And i think the board may be able to go a bit higher, not sure...

Yeah ive read everywhere that people are getting stuck at about 420FSB. The hardcore overclockers have modded the board to allow more than 1.65v to the MCH which one person claimed it only got him a measly 430FSB. Not spectacular. I might get myself a P5B Deluxe soon enough :P Or just get a faster C2D

Well at the time it was the perfect upgrade from my p5nd2-sli deluxe :P

Ive read in other places though that at around the 400-450 mark alot of motherboards dont like it that much. Apparently if you skip off that area totally and go above it, itll start booting ok again? Is that anything to listen to or not? i havent had the time to try it.

I will try and find where i got that information from!

EDIT: Was the p965 chipsets that have the black hole between 350 and 400. So no worries there. The highest stable overclock with an e6400 and a p5w dh is 3.68ghz using a volt mod. Not my kinda thing really im afriad!

Get yourself a better clocking board and your be off!

I swear your voltage is slightly high for my like.. considering the speed. :eh:

Oh remember, every chip is an individual. So try not to follow over peoples clocks.. try and figure out your own.

Ive taken it all the way upto 1.525v at one point trying to get a higher overclock! So i havent lowered it to the lowest stable value yet. And i need to tighten my RAM timings too!
