Hello guys i am new here and i want to share with my problem.

I just bought PC with E8500 installed in. My motherboard is EG45M-DS2H. So i was trying to OC my CPU so i went to BIOS changed from Defualt 7* multiplier and cpu frequency 333 (2,5mhz) to 9* multplier and cpu frequency of 400 (3,6 mhz). I saved it and restarted pc. When i looked into CPU-Z only thing that has changed is Multiplier but my frequency is still on 333 instead of 400. I have CPU Host Control enabled so i have no idea why it is not working :/ any ideas ?

Thanks and sorry for my english.

Welcome to OCF freedef,
So host control is enabled. Did you hit enter after changing the FSB to 400 ? Also if it's not stable the board will revert back to 333. If it were me I would try a little at a time. Jumping that much very seldom works without other changes. Try it again but only go to 350-360 this time. If that works then try a bit higher.

I've tried to read the manual on this board but it's just hardware installation guide in 20 ****ing languages. Pics of your BIOS would be helpful at this point.

Did you change your memory divider so your not overclocking the memory, otherwise it will fail to overclock.

On the Advanced screen you should disable C1E and EIST. Those two options control lowering the CPU multiplier and voltage for energy purposes. But they can cause instability when overclocking.

What are you using to monitor your overclock in Windows? CPUz?
