i thought as such. oh well looks like im gonna have to learn all the ***. just so many terms and variables!
as far as i know (this is very rough) seems to me like a game of disabling the basic power saving settings, and slowly upping the multiplier and the voltage. how many variables are there really? voltage, multiplier and.....?
i know not to go above 1.5 volts, so better to probably start about 1.25?
Unless you are aiming for something really high, just start on the multiplier.
raise it a step, boot into windows and test in on prime 95 for a while. if its fine, reboot and raise it again. You don't need to raise the voltage until you can't boot windows or get a prime crash. by which point you can just raise the voltage by the smallest increment to try to stabilize. My chip can hit 4.5 without any extra voltage, hence why i say you shoudl find this a piece of cake. though my chip also needs LOADS of extra voltage as soon as i start going over 4.5. it just depends on your chip, but don't raise the voltage more than you need to.
yep, each chip is different so will need different settings.
i started by keeping the voltage stock, and upped the multiplier to 40 (4GHz) to save a bit of time, as most 2500Ks can do this on stock voltage.
i then just upped the multiplier by 1 and booted into windows, ran prime95 until it BSOD or threw up a error. once i did get an error, i up the voltage 1 step, for instance 1.35 to 1.36..... and repeat (raising multiplier and voltage until i find the temps get too hot (keep them below 75 Celsius)
Edit- started with the guide at 1.350 vcore at 4.7Ghz max temp was 56*C, i did not feel comfortable with the vcore that high as i have heard of people burning the cpu at 1.40vcore. Settled with the 4.5Ghz overclock with the vcore at 1.315 as i noticed when lowering the vcore it was stable at 1.30 but was being supplied .012v over what i had set. Then bumped the core to 1.315 just to be safe.
