post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'v been trying to get my cpu into the 4.1-4.3ghz range and need help with the BIOS settings..I'v overclocked b4 into this range with a low temp but have had stability problems... Could somebody help me with what voltages and other things to set? I'v looked at guides but its hard to know what to set because my hardware is different then what the people on youtube videos/guides/and etc have

Hardware

cpu-980x

gpu-5970

ram-12gb (1333)

mobo- evga 4-way sli

If you need anymore info tell me, just ask..

the 12 gb of ram might be holding you back.. try using 6gb and see if it's more stable

I got 32x133 (4.24 Ghz) to work on my W3680 ( same as your 980x) with 1.3375V and +225 vtt.

Also take a look at this guide from the evga forums http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.aspx?m=235
