Overclocking a ga-x58a-ud3r r2.0 for intel i7 950

post #1 of 2

Hello everyone.

I have very limited experience overclocking and I could use some help.

My system specs:
ga-x58a-ud3r v2.0
i7 950 at 3.06ghz, turbo boosted to 3.2ghz
12gb corsair xm3 ram (6x2gb) at 9-9-9-27 using xms profile
Antec 902 v3 ATX case
Corsair 650 HTX PSU
Raid 0 consists of 2 m4 64MB SSDs (128 stripe) with a 1TB WDC for storage
EVGA GTX 470 overclocked to core 725, memory 1750

CPU sits on idle at 39C, under prime 95 stress test goes max to 63C.

I would like to get a stable 3.8GHZ, to 4.0GHZ. How would I go about setting up my bios to do this?

I can play with the frequencies, but I have no idea of how to setup voltages for stabilizing system. Thank you!

Also wanted to mention that with my system at idle, CPUid shows my core speed at 3.2ghz, with core voltage at 1.248V. During loading, it would fluctuate between 1.232V and 1.216V.
