help OC'ing it 930 + asus p6t + 6gb ram 1333

post #1 of 60
Thread Starter 
Hey

I never overclocked anything, but decided to give it a try before I get mad with my computer's performance.

I found some guides on the net, but not to a spec like mine, most of them are deluxe p6t mobos, mine is regular, so idk if there's any difference, and I'm afraid of burning everything out.

so I wanted help overclocking my cpu. right now I just have one extra fan, can't afford much more than a few regular air fans to help with the temperature, so it doesnt have to be the fastest clock

appreciate any kind of help!

thanks,
Rafael

Everything will be about the same, all the labels and whatnot in the BIOS will be the same. You're save to follow the P6T Deluxe guide.

thanks. and yeah, except I don't have liquid or fancy air coolers, I have no idea what settings would be safe to push, etc.

So could someone point me directions to overclocking it without anything else than a few cheap standard gabinet fans?

thanks in advance

so, I was trying a guide, and set everything, including my voltage to what the guide told me. and my computer didn't start, BSOD on startup.

why is it that difficult to get help with overclock?

How many ghz do you want? I can help you if you would like...what are your settings now?

Sean, I'd REALLY like some help, if possible.
I want as many ghz as possible without buying fancy coolers. Right now I'm short on money, so I can only buy some simple cabinet fans if needed.

I've reset my settings to default after I got a BSOD on startup

I just realized that I wrote "it" instead of i7 on title, so I'm on a intel i7 930, asus p6t (not deluxe) and 6gb triple channel g.skill ddr3 1333mhz.

if relevant, I've got a 750w corsair psu, 1tb western digital hdd and an EVGA gtx260.

thanks,
Rafael

Ok so first of all you need to get some good monitoring software.
Download these to begin with, if you have already good.
http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/ <-CPU temp only but very accurate
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html <-System temps including CPU and mobo and so on.
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html <- CPU voltage and frequency monitor...also other mobo ram stuff.

Also you need stabilty testing software.
Download this: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/...BurnTest.shtml
It is one of the quickest ways to see if your O.C. is stable.

And you may want to download cinebench to see what the before and after performance is.
http://www.maxon.net/downloads/cineb...bench-115.html

So you have a stock cooler? That may only allow you to get up to 3.2 or 3.3hgz if your lucky. I advise getting a hyper 212 atleast though...at a later time when you can of course.

Set your voltages and all in the bios to auto. Set your ram timmings, frequency, and voltage to spec also.

Ok once all that is downloaded and installed you need to note down your stock temps at idle and load. Also note what your voltages are.

Open up CPU-z, hw monitor, and realtemp.
Then take a screen shot of them when at idle.

Open up Intel burn test and run it on 8 threads and max ram for 5 runs and take a screen shot of everything again before the last run.
Post this info before anything.

If your temps are under 80-85C then we can start to O.C.

I am going to post up pics of my O.C. for 3.46GHz for reference once we get started. If your bios looks anything like mine then copy it. You should be at 3.46GHz easy since it is such a mild O.C...but you may need to take it back down a little since you have stock cooling. Also you may need to set your voltage to a set amount if your mobo gives too much vcore.

This is a lot of info i know, but if you have any questions regarding anything let me know and i hope this helps.

Sean, thank you.
I'll look for a cooler like the one you mentioned. I didn't know it was much better than the stock cooler, and I guess it's not that expensive.
I got a problem with my hd right now, will probably have to buy a new one, so perhaps I can expand the budget a little bit.

will report back after I test your settings

cheers,
Rafael
