Just bragging and few questions

e5300 @ 4ghz stock voltage
AC freezer 7 rev 2
gigabyte p45-ud3r 5770 stock
first c2d overclock
please pass along the c2d overclocking guide
super pi 13min 59 sec
I did think I was cool until I saw the world record LOL
and links to stress testing software
also graphics overclocking software
other than overdrive 5770
free benchmarking software ?
adn will I get better results with a lower clock speed witha higher FSB ???

  1. 5770 is the newer revision of cooler memory not being cooled
  2. Best answer
    Yes, you will get better results with a higher FSB at the same clock speed, but if you lower the cpu clock to raise the FSB you will lose performance.

    For a benchmarking software, you can use 3d mark 06 and vantage (free version) or you can download superpi.

    It's for an EP35-DS3L but all the Gigabyte Core2 BIOS's are similar.

    Go through the guides. Then go into the BIOS and change the System Memory Multiplier (or whatever your BIOS calls it) from AUTO to 2.00, 2.00B, or 2.00D - whichever you need to set the Memory Frequency to twice the FSB.

    Download CPU-Z to check your FSB:RAM ratio.

    Warning - confusion factor between what the BIOS calls things and what CPUZ calls things. What the BIOS calls "memory frequency" is actually the memory clock. What CPUZ calls "memory frequency" is half the memory clock - DDR2 RAM, remember? It transfers two chunks of data each bus cycle. What you want in CPUZ is a 1:1 FSB:RAM ratio.
