my memory runs at stock speed (800Mhz) at the moment.
i want to get my cpu up to ~3.2 ghz and would like memory to run at ~1066 Mhz.

  1. Google "Overclocking". Read, learn, do!
  2. ive tryed.theres no same setup as mine so it wouldnt do any good.
  3. If you can't read the guides and understand.

    Then your alturnative is to check back daily and wait on someone to post a response that has the same setup as you.

    It's not that hard to understand unless your gonna be an extreme overclocker.
  4. You're expecting to find a guide with the same processor/mobo/ram as you have. Expecting a guide that give precise guidelines as to where and how the overclocking should and shouldn't be done and I think that's naive.

    Overclocking, above all, is about learnign - not performance. Trial and error. Pushing parts to work harder then they were intended, and to do it well.

    Take the time to read, enjoy and absorb what people have posted, not only on what exactly it is you're looking for - No one can teach you how to overclock if you arent whilling to take the time and learn.
  5. ok ill try
  6. i think ive done it.

    thanks guys
  7. here is some more info
  8. Have you stress tested it? The speeds look good.
  9. not tested it yet.gona do it tonight
  10. Your chipset shoud be able to handle a 1600mhz fsb. Try to set you CPU at 401fsb and 8x multiplier. Should give you 3.2Ghz w/ a 1600mhz FSB. It would make better use of your ram.
  11. thank you.ill give it a go
  12. ok.ive set cpu fsb at 400 mhz x8 multipl. motherbords fsb runs at 1600mhz now.but ive droped ram down to 800mhz thou. if i up ram to ~1066 mhz,will it increase performance?
  13. ^ No. RAM speed has no impact in real life performance 99.9% of the time. Download and run Prime95 Small FFT for at least 8hrs. Also download RealTemp and check the CPU Core temps.
  14. ive run prime for about an hour and a half (had no more time to run more,will do it later)and here are the results

    tell us what u think plz.
  15. Woah man, your temps are pretty high (~70C). Should be OK, but imo, it's too much. Consider getting a XIGMATEK S1283 + bolt in kit.
  16. im planning to get thermaltake bigwater 760 kit.will it drop temps?
  17. thanks planning to get thermaltake bigwater 760 kit.will it drop temps?
  18. ^NO! Don't get that kit. Many consider it low quality. Post a new thread for WC help and read this:
  19. cheers shadow.ive posted in WC and been told that TT is rubish.
  20. ^ Link?
