GA-880GM-UD2H turbo core setting?

Hello, my friend recently purchased an 1055t Thuban and the GA-880GM-UD2H motherboard (not one I personally would select, but he got a deal on it). I tried to help him overclock, but could not even post with a tiny 10% bump to 220FSB. I am not familiar with AMD as much, but my research says that turbo core should be disabled. I cannot find this setting in his BIOS.

Here is the manual... http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-880gm-ud2h_e.pdf

The other question I had was:

Is disabling AMD K8 Cool&Quiet recommended for overclocking?

Are there any things I am overlooking?

I am basically setting the FSB to a number, adjusting the HT, NB, and DRAM to go to their normal 2/2/1.33 settings. My first attempt was to go straight to 250, 8x 8x and 5.33x (or whatever made it 1.33 :O ). Do I need to mess with the voltages on this system to get it to post (left them on auto because I couldn't figure out what was a good safe value because it makes you do +/- instead of just setting a number)? If so, what would you guys recommend?

Thanks for the help :)

  1. Don't think that board has turbo core option.

    Disable c'n'q while your trying to oc, enable it after your settled in.

    Are you using a pci graghics card or the igp. The fsb is tied to the igp, lock igp speed or disable.

    PCI-E freq. is locked at 100 ?

    Don't mess with voltages until you can get some where first (202,203,204 etc). What is the current vcore ?

    Full system specs always helps..

  2. IGP disabled, PCI-E freq locked to 100. Didn't mess with voltages - it was on auto and said 1.350 I believe. I don't have the computer in front of me though.

    Wouldn't not disabling turbo core for the CPU be somewhat dangerous?

    I'll try to give full specs off the top of my head as accurately as possible

    AMD 1055T 2.8GHz
    Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H
    OCZ Gold 1333 Dual Channel DDR3 (9 9 9 20 or 24)
    MSI Cyclone 460 1GB
    500 GB Caviar (Green? Blue? Black? lol) HD
    650W Antec Earth Watts

    It wouldn't post, but I didn't try a lot of tiny speed bumps. I'll have to try that next time.
  3. Make sure memory timings and voltage are set to specs and they are in the blue slots.
  4. According to the motherboard manual, the memory sticks should be in different colors inr order to belong one channel. Why do you think they should be in one color slots (blue ones) ?
