I have know clue how to overclock my CPU
This is embarrassing, I looked at a couple of the Guides and became totally lost on how to overclock my cpu.
I look in my Bios and am pretty much lost because it looks so different then the guides Bios.
Need less to say I have know idea where to start

Could you post a couple of shots of teh bios, where memory timings and cpu speed, voltages?

Basically, increase cpu/nb volts, and then increase cpu FSB speed, boot into your OS, and test away...

That's about it on a DS3L...

cadaveca February 12, 2009 06:50 PM

Yeah, maybe some mem tweaking...

True, keep a close eye on that mem speed since you have DDR2-6400 to run with that E8400. Drop that ram multi to 2.00, and have fun!

Don't be shy to raise the NB volts at +0.3V - make sure you have plenty of airflow, the board can handle that no problem.

VCore max. 1.40V.

Major Vdroop on that board though.

I tend to work one first then the other, overclock the cpu then work on the ram. Then see what is stable out of those numbers.

ok thanks people. I will try

Shadowmeph February 13, 2009 12:46 PM

ok well I still don't know what I am doing I go into the mit settings in my Bios and all I see is ( this is a pic of a Bios I found googling I am not sure how t oget a pic of my own bios otherwise I would post that pic) of course my cpu clco ratio is at 9x and I also have some setting under the clock ratio that when I open it it shows I can bump my cpu up to 3.16ghz .. other then that I am not sure what to do I want to go as high as I can ( stable)

CPU host Clock Control, set to enabled, Will allow you to adjsut the value jsut below...which is FSB. Voltages are just below, on the bottom half of teh page.

pic can be taken with a digi-cam/webcam, cellphone...

Shadowmeph February 13, 2009 04:27 PM

ok that makes sense so what is the average to go from the setting is at 333 so how far should I boost it up to 400? that which program do I test for stability / heat and for how long? oh and by the way thank you
