Never OC'ed a cpu before,find the guide difficult, would anyone like to help?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I found a guide in the 9x5 clubs thread but I find it very hard to follow, can someone help me with this?

increase vcore to 1.45 and multi to 20

I need someone to guide me along the whole process.

Im doing this because Im being told that my processor is bottlenecking my gpu's, and no matter how high I overclock they still will be a bottleneck.. so I need to get this thing as high as I can.

not going to hold your hand. doubt anybody else on this site will either.
just trial and error. if it fails try and try again until it stops failing.
and i'm pretty sure CF 5770's aren't being bottle necked by a 955.

Once I get off my butt and get to it, I'm going to be writing a full guide to general overclocking. Not what can MY chip run at, but how to FIND what MY chip can run at. Every chip is different, even if sold as the exact same one.

General idea, clock up until unstable on stock volts (or temperature limit), then increase vcore if you want to go higher (slowly), or drop to the highest clock stable on whatever vcore you are comfortable with.

OP is this the guide that you speak of ?

http://overclockhowto.com/cpu/how-to...ck-an-amd-cpu/

If it is that is the most rubbish guide I have seen, it's too general. You need something more specific.

Here is better guide, also the guys are right. Not many will hold your hand through this, but what also is true is that it is all trial and error.

HERE is the better guide

But things to keep in mind (all the time):

AMD CPU's love cooler temps over higher voltages.

The max voltage you should use on air is 1.55v
The max Temp for the CPU 62c

Some times the CPU/NB (IMC Integrated Memory Controller) can cause instabilities if not high enough if you are aiming for a high CPU clock (this is new to me even though I have been overclocking AMD CPU's for a bit now)

Keep you HT (Hyper Transport) within +/- 10% of the original 2000MHz.

i'll say this
get your cpu-nb to 2600-2800 stable before you overclock anything else. its speed adds to system response more than cpu overclock.
use the cpu multiplier to find your highest cpu speed before tinkering with the reference clock(fsb) speed.
always keep your ram speed under its rating until you have all other overclocks nailed down stable.
keep your ht between 1900-2100. the closer to 2000 the better in most cases. higher USUALLY causes instability.
the only voltages you should have to add to is cpu vcore and ram volts. there are posts everywhere for different ram voltages ( mostly 1.65v I BELIEVE ) and max vcore is 1.55v on air.
cpu temp max is 62*. a lot push 55* as max for stability reasons.
check temps for 15 minutes with prime95 or IBT. if its stable and temps are good, try pushing for a higher clock unless youre happy with the speed.
DO NOT add voltage until you need, meaning unstable overclock.
if you can pass 12 hours prime95 in blend, you should be good and stable. run ibt at whatever the ibt guys say to double check.

very very very basic basic help. once you get comfortable and you read enough, you will laugh at what i wrote here. but its what i did when i started and ive learned a lot but no where near enough to say i know what im doing. its all trial and error for everyone. you gotta start somewhere with hands on experience.
