Started overclocking 3870K couple question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
(system specs:
AMD a8-3870K @ 3.2, iGPU @ 700
Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) 1866 PC3-15000
Gigabyte GA-A75-D3H)

Did some searching around and found some of the stuff I needed. Have it running at 3.2 just fine by just increasing the multiplier by 2. Bumped up the iGPU to 700 and seems to be doing fine thus far. Now my questions:

FSB is at 100, should that be increased?
Instead of using BiOS, should I just use Easy Tune 6? The 2nd "button" in ET6 bumps it to 3.38 with a FSB to 125mhz.

When I first built this system, it was reading the ram at 1333 instead of the intended 1866. Went into BiOS and changed it to 1866, but would not let me boot. So I went into the BiOS and changed the timing to what it should have been manually (9-10-9-27) and 1T. Now in ET6, it shows the frequency for those timings is 934, but the max bandwidth is PC3-10700H (667mhz).
What can I use to show me exactly what its running at? Hard to tell if its correct.

Thanks a bunch (and I can get screen shots if needed of the BiOS for the memory timing)

1. No need to... unless you want to OC the memory more than 1866MHz

2. It's better to use the BIOS, that way you will have more control over your OC (ET6 can mess things up)

3. You can use HWiNFO64
