Help me figure out why I'm having issues overclocking my CPU

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to overclock my cpu but the BIOS looks very weird and nothing like I see in the guides or other people having, please help me understand it and what I should be changing if my goal is to overclock it to 3.8ghz. I've attached some pics of it and if you look at pic #2 you can see that when you try to change to volt it goes up by like +0. something instead of changing the actual value. Also when It reaches +0.024 it becomes red which is not recommended.




Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 870 @ 2.93GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.9GHz

Memory: 8192MB RAM
Card Name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570

ok >>

just do the following :
disable EIST and turbo boost
make 24 multiplier
then rise bclk to reach 3.8 ghz of cpu
rise the volt of cpu to 1.22 (default 1.176)
keep the frequency of ram near stock clock
