First Time OC, Having Trouble.

Ok so technically i have oced before, using easy tune 6
but i decided to set back to defaults and oc manually through bios
this is what i was told
"I would put the CBLK at 200, Multi at 20, try vcore at 1.3v, Also make sure to have LCC at high/extreme so you dont get the vdrop when you max out the CPU."

in bios i have set me BCLK to 150 which set my cpu to 3.45GHz, which is where i want it
and i set the vcore to 1.3v, however i dont know how to change my multi or the lcc?

here is a review of my motherboard, with pics of pretty much every screen in the bios

a couple other questions i have
when i open control panel, system it says Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz 3.45 GHz

when i open cpu-z it says Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz

in bios it says 3.45GHz
Non-Turbo Frequenc 3450.3
Turbo Frequenc 3600.3

why does it show my cpu at 3.07ghz n cpuz?

GIGABYTE GA-X58-USB3 LGA 1366
GIGABYTE 1gb 460 GTX SLI
i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz oced @ 3.45GHz
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM

  1. anybody?
  2. howdy!

    if you look at the lower left of cpu-z you will see the clock speed listed as 3600.0Mhz which is correct iwth your turbo enabled. the specification means the factory specs.

    since i have never overclocked a bloomfield, i cannot advise you there. but a 20% overclock isn't looking bad at all.
  3. so my cpu is over clocked to 3.45ghz?

    Yes it is surely overclocked at 3.45ghz.
    That 3.07 is in the name of the processor(complete name of the cpu)
    Dont worry , its good.
