Auto voltages question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm still new to OCing and I'm wondering how effective auto controlled voltages are. I'm looking to go past my 4GHz mark and make a leap to 4.4GHz. Now I know to manually set core voltage and dram voltage but the rest I'm not to familure with. So would keeping the rest set to auto still work? I plan to use a multi of 23, a bclk of 190, 1.45 core volt and 1.65 dram volt to start out with. With everything else at auto. If someone could explain in better detail wat is needed that would be great...

Theres a couple of good threads about OC'ing the I7's at the top of the "intel CPU" page under essential threads. Have a real good read if you haven't already. Also theres an SB OC guide and review that goes into detail about the different voltages and thier purposes, I know yours isnt 1155 but the info is awesome ill edit this post with some links...

EDIT:
Temps and Volts
920 OC Guide
SB OC Guide (great info on the various setting in bios, albeit SB bios still has usefull info)

iv read a few OC guides and they have gotten me to 4GHz. But I'm picky and thinking about going higher... say 4.4GHz. Was hoping to start volts higher than normal then slowly take them down till unstable.. just a lot of info for a guy just starting out at OCing. Also there's the issue of heat. Which begs the question do I really need HT lol. People say yes and no. So who knows at this point, I paid for the i7 so mauls use it lol...

As far as voltages go you need the knowledge of which options effect which components etc.. otherwise you'll definitely run into trouble. Start with the vcore, push that as far as it can (while still being within safe operating limits) and then up your multi untill it crashes/doesn't post. then do the same but up your BLCK instead, remembering to underclock your ram. see how far that get you then you can check which BSOD's your getting with the more knowledgeable around here
