Hi all, i have the asus P6T, 6GB Hyperx Kingston DDR3 RAM, GTX 295, and 1050w power supply and of course the i7 920 processor. I am just wondering what the perfect settings would be (in BIOS) to overclock my core to 3.0 and 3.2GHz. I am very new to overclocking and i would appreciate alot help =) thankyou.
you can manually set the ram timings and speed if you want, but for that small of a clock it probably won't make much of difference. You can increase the ram voltage to 1.64 if you are having stability issues or if you set the speed/timings manually, but otherwise I would leave it undervolted at 1.5.
At stick your memory will run at 133.33 x 8 or 1066 and your CPU will run at 2.66 (2.8 w/ Turbo)
Changing the BCLK friom 133 to 150 will:
150 x 8 = 1200 Memory Frequency
150 x 20 = 3.0 GHz CPU (3.15 w/ turbo)
166.66x 8 = 1333 Memory Frequency
16.66 x 20 = 3.33 GHz CPU (3.50 w/ turbo)
1. I would change BCLK to 150....or 167 and leave everything else on auto....check everything for stability.
2. Then drop down the CPU voltage an increment or 2 at a time till ya reach instability ....then up 1 or 2 notches and leave it there. 1.125 is where mine's out (3.7GHz - 365/7 profile) .... 1.3 volts w/ (4.2 Ghz -gaming profile.)
3. "Rinse and repeat" Step 2 w/ the DRAM voltage .... 1.5625 is where mine's at
