Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

Building computers for years (mostly just home use stuff) now I'm getting into some better stuff. This is my first OC need a little help with it since I haven't done this before. Here is what I have!

CPU: Intel QX9750
MOBO: ASUS: P5E3 PRO BIOS Version: 0505
MEM: OCZ DDR3 PN: OCZ3P1600LV2G 7-7-7-16-60
Graphics: Nvidia GTX 8800
Cooling: all air except CPU has a H50 (corsair liquid cooling).


This machine is not for gaming... It is just my everyday use machine where I surf, code (VS, netbeans), encoding & decoding, burning some DVDs..

yeah, I went in and changed the FSB to 400 from 333 and up'ed my multiplier to 8x now I'm getting 3.2Ghz instead of 2.0Ghz and I'm stable for 24 hours of testing using prime95 and my highest temp was 49 c and the delta between the 4 cores is 5 C. All I read up as to why the Asus IA didn't do this automatically, and found out that since my proc is a engineering sample it didn't recognize it and clocked it way down to 6x multiplier!! thanks again!
