Im glad you made this thread because I was just about to ask for the specific settings for all of these as well. Currently there is a guide for overclocking my mobo, but no one has updated it and the main settings it refers to no longer exist.

So, I hope someone sees this. I am replying to bump it and hopefully get it in front of more OC members

Every overclock is like a unique little snow flake. You could have 2 people with the exact same hardware configurations that have to use two completely different set of settings to reach the same overclock.

To do this right, you have a lot of reading ahead of you:

To do this fast (not necessarily right) stary by upping the CPU multiplier a notch or to and running stress tests like Prime95. Between bumps I would give Prime95 atleast 15 mins. If you make it without BSODing or dropping cores, bump it a little more. If you are getting errors or bluescreens, try upping the voltage a 100th of a point next.

As a shortcut you can google for something like "8320 990fxa-ud3 overclock settings" and look for people with a similar setup as you and start about 30% below their settings and begin bumping the numbers.

Now, once you overclock you must get stable. Most people will tell you 24 hrs of un-failed Prime95 but I think it's ok after about 5-8hrs.

If you're going to dump on someone's ideas, at least have some good ones of your own.
