GA-EP45-UD3LR OC ing past 3.3 on 667 memory?
« on: July 16, 2010, 10:22:05 pm »
Lo guys Ive had my new Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3LR installed for 2 days now and have managed to get it oced at 3.3 ghz but I think my 667 MHZ PC 5300 memory is holding me back when ever I bump up the memory in the bios the system wont start or it will but it will crash? I need some help.

Have you upped the memory voltage? Raised the northbridge voltage?

I havn't yet but im going to try that tonight man. Its been ages since I overclocked my chip and my last board was an old Asrock p35 board which didnt have a lot of OC ing features.

Things have moved on a lot since then as far as the O/Cing goes. It is much more complicated now. Just be glad that you dont have one of the X58 chipset board as far as that goes.

Yeah I noticed  :o, there are a huge selection of options in the BIOS which I never had with my old Asrock P35 board. I tried upping the voltage and it would boot but wouldn't run stable at 3.4 ghz. Also I couldn't find the northbridge voltage option in the advanced settings in the bios?

I think either my Corsair PC5300 memory just wont do the job or I will need a new PSU, I have a 400 watt cheapo which I should really replace.

One of the most underated but also most important components is the PSU. So many people spend time, money and effort getting together a good quality system and then just use the cheapest power supply they can lay their hands on.
