MY RIG:

GIGABYTE 880GM-UD2H
Amd Phenom II x4 925 2.8Ghz Oc @ 3.3Ghz
4Gb G.skills DDR3
THERMALTAKE FRIO CPU COOLER
ATI HD 5770
OCZ ModX Stream Pro 700watts
WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE 64bit

THIS MY FIRST TIME TO OC A CPU... IM USING IT FOR PLAYING GAMES... GTA IV.CRYSIS.JUST CAUSE...etc
I RUN A PRIME95 FOR 15Min just to check my temps...
PLS HELP ME TO DO SOME FINAL TOUCH, Im happy with 3.3Ghz...

my Questions:
- Is this Good Overclocking Settings..?
- Can i reach 3.4Ghz with current Cpu Voltage...? i underVolt it from 1.392 to 1.296, im just aware of Temps and LifeSpan of my Cpu, Im Planning to keep it until 3 years before i made an Upgrade...
- and About Ram/Memory Settings, do i need to leave to Auto Settings..? I want to tune it up, but i dont know how^^

HERE IS MY CURRENT BIOS SETTINGS

  1. Hi.

    1- What's the RAM default speed?
    2- I¡ll assume that you have disable Cool'n'Quite and C1E support, if u don't have it disable, do it.
  2. My Ram is G.Skills DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 1.5v

    Cool'n'Quite and C1E is now disabled....

    Whats Next..?
  3. Ok.

    We need set the RAM to correct timings (9-9-9-24) and voltage (1.5V), so, follow this steps:

    Go to DRAM configuration>DDR3 Timing Items>change from "Auto" to "Manual">change the first five values to this: 9-9-9-24-2T. Go back and change DDR3 Voltage Control from "Normal" to 1.5V.

    Save changes and try to log in on windows. Let me know how works the thing until now.
  4. my Ram Timings is now set to 9-9-9-24 and DDR3 Voltage is set to Normal 1.5v...
    I Log to Windows and it runs Smooth and just fine...
    So, lets move on... whats next saint19..?



  5. Had 4G of memory in thee op and now there is 6G, are all three sticks the same ?
  6. Perfect, now we need set the NB and HT to 2600 and 2000 respectively. Set the "Reference clock" (CPU Frequency (Mhz) on your BIOS) to 200MHz and NB and HT to the above values.

    We also need find the stable voltage for those values, so, you need set the "CPU voltage control" to 1.4V and after that start to play with the "CPU-NB VID". On "CPU-NB CID" you can go until 1.4V, but NEVER over the CPU voltage.
  7. I cant get the NB Freq higher 2600, the maximum multiplier is x10 only...
    If I set the CPU Frequency (Mhz) on my BIOS back to 200Mhz that would mean going back to default Clock of 2.8Ghz...

    im a bit confused now, pls help


  8. Uhmm that's strange. Set it to x10.

    You are right, if you set the CPU Frequency to 200MHz, the CPU will run at stock speed.
  9. heres my latest current setting for now, i set the FSb to 250Mhz x 14 multipier, and using a stock Cpu Voltage...
    i run an 8Hrs Prime95 and 3DMark11 with no Bsod or Errors...
