First Time Overclocking - i3 550 - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Yea, I see that having dedicated GPU is one thing mostly every big OCer has in common. So I think that any issues I'm getting would be due to not having one.
So I guess that's it.


To anyone running on the same specs as my system. These settings are stable (HT off). Anything higher resulted in crashes (Perhaps voltage can be lowered a little, but w/e):



****
1st image: Raise BLCK to 200. Lower GPU to 533. Lower CPU multi to 22. This.

Set the IGPU to 450-550. Should keep you around 733. I am currently using the iGPU as I'm trying to decide what to buy, and I have no problems at 4400.

I would also get your BCLK stable at 200 and use lower multipliers. If you can get 200 stable, then 21x will get you 4200, 22x 4400, and so on. It'll be easier to just up the clock speed since you should only have to touch the vcore once you've got QPI/VTT/DRAM and all that nailed down.
I also run with HT on.

If you plan on gaming at some point, you'll want your system stable with HT on, so if 4.2 with ht on is stable, but not 4.4 you will want 4.2. There is a pretty significant boost in performance with HT on in games/apps that use more then 2 threads, and windows is much snappier.

Don't understand. Is the 'IGPU' the graphics clock? How would setting it to 550 mean that it will be around 733.

* Ok I think I get it. The BCLK add IGPU clock add up. Lowered IGPU to 533 and it works.
And also, wouldn't raising any other voltage other than cpu cause the motherboard to overheat?

No it should be fine, the i3's don't stress the very much. I think I have 1.210 for VTT with my memory at 1600, QPI at 4Ghz and BCLK at 200. Try and keep it under 1.35. VTT adds a decent amount of heat, so be careful.

What about the Vtt voltage? I've been reading that raising it to 1.3-1.35 gives a more stable oc. Would then raising Vtt allow for a lower Vcore?


EDIT: Oh wow I didn't read the above post... *I are so dumb*.
