Ok so technically i have oced before, using easy tune 6 :pfff: 
but to day i decided to set back to defaults and oc manually though 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
http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/gax58usb3/5.htm

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
SILVERSTONE ST75F-P 750W
SILVERSTONE TJ09

It will show your Ghz differently because you have some kind of "power saving" feature enabled in the BIOS, you wont notice a difference but there's no reason you cant disable it.

First off, smart move going with manual overclock. Once you get the hang of it it's extremely simple compared to what it's made out to be. Especially with the RAM speeds mattering less and less to achieve stability.

When you run prime what does CPU-Z say?

The 950 has a locked multi so don't bother with that.

Turn off Turbo to help achieve max stability at higher clocks. May not matter at 3.4ghz though.

FYI, there is an overclocking section which may yield you more help.

thanks for the replies guys, ive been working a lot of hours so i havent even had time to check back.

that does make sense since i have DES Energy Savor 2.0, but when its not enabled i get worse fps?
so is my my ghz really at 3.45 even though its now shown?

@Raidur



and can i have this thread moved or do i just have to make a new one?

I don't know much about the DES program, however CPU-Z tells you your current clock.

A moderator will move your thread if you ask, however if you want it done faster just start your new thread and leave a post here stating that you've done so. The mod will then lock this thread instead of move.
