I can only clock this CPU with this mother board by adjusting the FSB on the mobo according to tech support at the factory.
Here are some questions:
I don't see anywhere in my BIOS to set the ram divider ratio. I have a setting for my memory frequency which is set to max at 800 for my DD2 800 corsair memory sticks.
Spread Spectrum- I have 3 choices and only one is disabled in the factory settings
HT spread spectrum - should I enalbe or disable and what does it do? No info when highlighted
PCIe Spread Spectrum - should I enalbe or disable and what does it do? It says it's a selection for nForce MCP when I highlight it.
SATA spread spectrum - should I enalbe or disable and what does it do? This one was disabled as a factory setting and only says SATA spread spectrum selection when highlighted like that is supposed to be helpful.
I can't find these anywhere in my bios can someone help me with what they might be called with my system?:
CPU TM fuction - I think my BIOS calls this CPU Thermal Control and if that is correct then i have choices - TM1 - TM2 or both.
TM1 being thermally throttled but cutting active processor clock cycles
TM2 being thermal throttling is achieved by reducing the cpu multiplier and cpu core voltage
TM3 is both TM1 and TM2 working together
What is the best choice for me on thermal throttling - 1 2 or both?
PECI - can't find anything like this
PCI clock syncronization - can't seem to find anything like this either
in my bios under voltages I see this
CPU Core - that one is self explanatory
CPU FSB - it's set at Auto right not what should I start at
Memory - i'm not going to mess with this one
NForce SPP - Auto right now but I'm not sure what this is (southbridge maybe)
nForce MCP - Auto right now what is this setting for
HT nForce SPP <-> MCP - interface between SPP and MCP: what should I set this at to start with for the overclock mentioned above?
