Multiple CPU questions.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i have a few questions for your guys, i recently bought a 965 BE and im LOVING it, but i have a question.

whats better for gaming
965 BE or a 2500k, now listen to the conditions.

0 overclock, not knowing how to overclock and say i dont learn how straight OUT OF THE BOX what will win? and how big is the diff? is the 350$ upgrade worth the preformanec?

question 2:
HOW do i overclock a 965 on a biostar ta890fxe? is there a overclocking for dummies guide?

current main question:
ok to make sure i got this correct, i only have to bump up my vcore for my cpu and raise the multiplier nothing else really? im wanting to achive 4.0ghz 24/7

so i would have to go 200*20 for 4ghz?

what else would i have to change to achive that?

2500k would essentially always be faster, but whether you need one or not depends on what kind of games you play. A 965 be should work pretty good for most games in my opinion. http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...ing-guide.html There's a guide.

Those are definitely cpu intensive games, but I doubt your 965 be would ruin the experience, especially if you learn to overclock it.

Yes essentially thats all you do, slowly raise the multi and test via prime95 or linx. Linx seems to work better for really stress testing your system. IF you don't BSOD or error in 30mins bump to next multi, if it doesn't boot then you should bump your CPU voltage some. You may also want to raise your NB speed too. Just might help keep your HT link around 2200 once you get your OC off the ground. good luck!

You're probably going to need an aftermarket cpu cooler to get to 4 ghz. Don't let your cpu temps get over 62c and ideally keep them at 55c. Use a program called hardware monitor to watch the temps.

I mean if they put it in their sig rig they better have it, if I see a noctua D14 I am not going to suggest an aftermarket cooler because they obviously know about them.... why make stuff up. Haha.. back to topic. With the noctua you should be well of OP.
