So far iv only messed around with it a little, iv ran AMD overdrive and that hit about 4.4 unstable. After resetting everything back to stock i tried ocing using the auto OC in bios and that got me to about. 3.9 .
Iv read that the asus auto oc in the bios is a good starting point but I have no idea where to go from there Im using all the parts in my sig rig and was hoping for a decent clock on a phen II 975 and water.
If anyone could help me out and take that next step it would be great thanks.
everything you need to overclock is on the advanced bios and all in the same section as the auto oc.
well for some reason, programs never work well, bios is always better, in order to overclock, you must raise the front side bus and CPU multiplier,
you will also have to raise the CPU voltage, at the same time when raising the fsb it will also raise your ram clocks and CPU NB, lower them for now, make sure your CPU NB is at 2000 or below and your ram is at 1333 or below, when you reach the clock you want hit F10 and restart, check for stability, if system is unstable you may need more voltage, but don't overdo it. try to stay below 1.55 on the CPU and 1.45 on the CPU NB
once that's stable, comes the fun part, overclocking your CPU NB, (this is pretty important as amd relies heavily on the CPU NB for speed and performance unless your just overclocking for the numbers 4.xx like the 4.8 I hit last week on a suicide run lol) now a decent CPU NB would be anything you can get stable above 2400mhz the higher the better, you can achieve this by raising the CPU NB and CPU NB voltage until you find a stable point.
last but not least we work on the ram, you may have 2000mhz ram, but by default it should be 1333 in the bios, you should be able to hit 1600 or higher with the ram your running, however amd doesn't use anything much more than 1666 due to CPU limitations so bump up your ram to around 16xx and check for stability again, if your 100% stable then we can work on tightening your timings. they should be set to somewhere around 9-9-9-24 2t, you may be able to get them down to around 8-8-8-20 or 7-7-7-19 but once again check for your stability along each step and your golden
good luck to you and if you need more help just let me know!Edited by THC Butterz - 8/29/11 at 10:08am
