bump for a overclocking guide that uses new mobo uefi bios
post #13 of 16
Hi,

I just built my system and I also would like it to be at least 4.5GHz.

Right now, I have it at 4.0GHz by changing the multiplier to 20.0. Also, I slightly increased the CPU voltage to 1.40000, and the RAM to ~1.35000. Are these settings okay?

The system is:
FX-8120 @ 4.0GHz
ASUS Crosshair V Formula
4x 4GB G-Skill Ripjaw RAM
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
Cooler Master Hyper 212 aftermarket cooler

Idle temps are at 38C, with ambient temps at 70F (not sure what that is in celsius)
I have AI Suire installed which allowed me to OC it to 4.0GHZ.

What I would like to know, is what settings should I use for increased CPU speed, and possibly increased RAM speed?

Thanks in advance if you choose to help me.

im not sure im a newb too but my temps are alot better then that im at 4.1 ghz and under full load it was 27 degrees just by changeing the multiplyer to 20.5 and leaving everything else stock but i still need a good guide for overclocking on new bios alot of the older guides are for the classic bios that are worded a little bit different making it difficult for a newb
