New Motherboard

Last response: in Overclocking

I built my first computer at the end of last year and got an ASUS Crosshair IV motherboard and Amd Phenom II 1090T. I have never done any overclocking but after talking to people on the forums i decided to just raise the multiplier and voltage to reach 4ghz. Now that the new Radeon 6990s came out, i sold the whole computer and am rebuilding another one with all the same specs except the new graphics cards and a new motherboard. When i get the new motherboard and want to get the processor back at 4ghz, will the overclocking be done the same way? Same multiplier and cpu voltage? And which board should i get between these two? Thanks.

I would give a slight edge to the Giggy based on oc ability,dual bios,and better ALC 889 audio performance.
They're both good boards though.
I'm a little pissed with MSI at the moment i bought one of their boards and less then 2 months later an rma is in the process.
Reason = can no longer access bios
Own two Giggy boards and love dual bios feature.

Would i do the overclock the same way if i just wanted to bump up the multiplier and voltage? Same settings?

In above guide your oc, but when you do oc must step by step for voltage ,multiplier,
-disabled c1e, cool n quite (power now)
- keep nb in 2000 mhz
- increase vdim max 1.65
- check setting oc in cpu-z
- always see temperature max 60C use hw monitor
-test stability use prime95 small fft 8hours
