Overclocking Help please

Hi,

I built a personal gaming rig and have been building comps for quite sometime. I want to start learning how to Overclock these things now. Would someone mind giving me some settings in my mobo to start with that would be safe to play around with from there? I have no clue even where to start besides in the bios. the rig I just built is for being portable and still provide decent power for gaming. Please.. I don't want to hear my motherboard is crap. I picked the best one I could find for gaming, but still being a micro atx. If anyone knows of a better micro atx gaming board, by all means mention it, but for now this is what I bought. Motherboard - Gigabyte GA 78lmt usb3 power supply - Corsair HX 750, CPU - FX 6300 Vishera, Memory - Corsair Vengeance DDR-3 8 gigs 1600 mhz, Kingston SSD 120 gb hard drive, Graphics card Gigabyte GTX 650 TI 2 gb memory. Water cooling Corsair H55. I have read some forums on here that they got this board to Overlock pretty darn high and stable. my main goal would be to get my CPU to 4.3 to 4.5 ghz and my memory to 1600 mhz. Thanks so much in advance and I did try to look around for settings, but me having ADD the forum searching was a bit to overwhelming for me. I saw somethings had to be turned off in the bios etc.. I just don't know where to start and am better at the 1 on 1 thing than trying to browse this huge forum.

Thanks,
Chris

  1. That board is not bad..
    4+1 power phase..should capable at least 160 watt cpu overclocking..

    but remember, without vrm heatsink, that area will be very hot..and in many case, burn it..
    before overclocking, you must keep that area cool..

    you can buy vrm cooling for example from enzotech..

    Ok, I see the area your talking about on my mobo and I have a different looking heatsink than whats in this pic. also, I forgot to mention I have the micro atx nzxt vulcan case and a 200 mm 101 cfm fan on the side of my case blowing right at the area your talking about. would this be ok or are you wanting me to water cool this area. thank you for the reply.

    No need for vrm water cooling..
    Good vrm heatsink is enough..

    But, still if you can afford vrm watercooling, than that will be very good..
