You don't disable C&Q feature while you overclock? Does it help or it is better to turn off this function?

My 24/7 setting is 4.7GHz with the ram at 1000MHz,i can do whole day stable at 5GHz ,my electric bill does not like that and my wife also..

Hahahahaha smile.gif I can imagine that smile.gif

I didn't have time to start overclocking my Thuban and I didn't get accustomed with all this potential this ASUS MOBO has yet.
Could you give me any tips how to start?
I am a little bit worried because now I see that my RAM sticks I have bought recently could not be as good as I expected to overclock :/
What do you think ?

I does not matter if c&q is off ore on ,I only do it to save some energy when the rig is idleling between benchmarks ore games.
The CPU has also the time to cool off before i do another bench ore game.
And its not overvolting all the time ,its nice to keep the cpu alive that way smile.gif
When I play some games i adjust c&q in the energy tab in windows to high performance,so i can play smoothly my games. smile.gif

Lets begin overcloking your CPU first before we do the ram.
set overclocking to manual
set cpu multiplier on 20
disable turbocore
Set Vcore at least to 1.45~1.5v

The ram divider can be set to 1333MHz to avoid problems with the above settings,leave your ram timmings as it is.
Save and exit and boot to windows to do some prime95 blend test.
After that we can discuss your ram ,maybe it hase some tricks in it before it works properly
good luck !

from what Ive read its 1.45 but Ive seen some push it to 1.5 but alot of it has to do with your core temps
post #2375 of 10135
1.5Vcore should be no problem with good cooling,like truckerguy said its the coretemp you have to beat to gain more table MHz.
