  1. Absolutely, read this guide twice and then post questions back here if you are confused about anything.
  2. ok,what I have done is increase the FSB to 333 mhz so now the proc is running at 3.50 ghz.however on idle its taking 1.264 there anyway I could lower that?

    and for some reason,when i do a stress test(OCCT,Prime95),the voltage is 1.248.Is that the vdroop thing?
  3. What other changes did you make in the BIOS?

    That voltage is fine, it's the temps that you'll want to monitor. make sure that you're not going over 65 degrees celcius under load while testing Prime 95.
  4. I changed MCH core to 1.200,ICH core is still at 1.505,RAM is still at 800mhz as its rated at 1.8 volts,I dont think I should overclock or tighten its timing,right?
    with OCCT Linpack I get 59 celcius.
    Another thing,since its taking a maximum of 1.264 volts.should I lower the cpu vcore in the bios to something like 1.27v?(right now its at 1.3 because I read that cpu z might not give the correct vcore reading.
  5. on LGA775, i have never touched anything MCH or ICH core, also, you can underclock your RAM from 800 to 666 to get a 1:1 ratio going with your CPU. As for the VCore, keep it as is, you should be fine if set to 1.300, just make sure the temps do not get too high...
  6. Is 1:1 still better than that "asynchronous" thing,and you mean I should set the MCH core to its default voltage because in the OC guide,he said to set to 1.200v is you have two sticks of RAM(don't know if this is just his opinion or a must)
  7. 1:1 is what i shoot for if it is well within bouds, it's not needed, but under-clocking your RAM a little bit will not have any ill-effect on the system's performance.

    As far as MCH core, i do not know as i have never even considered changing the setting and i have overclocked many different CPU's & motherboards.
  8. Same MOBO as ME! woohoo!

    It copes well with a 333MHZ FSB and Don't bother Fiddling with the ram, it sorts itself out. your core voltage is fine, don't bother adjusting any other voltages.

    Watch your Northbridge temps under load

    It tends to get rather toasty
    Mine gets Up to About 74'C under heavy load so i strapped a 45mm Fan to it and now it sits @ 62' Under load

    Watch your temps with speedfan.

    Good LUCK :D
