AI Suite II

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
good afternoon OCN. I took a screenshot of my desktop, I wanted to share it with you all to get some advice and tips . I truly dont know much about overclocking but I am here to learn. My question is this , Can I leave my system the way it currently is with out worrying about too much voltage and all the things that can happen to a system if its overclocked wrong. I am not saying that ASUS doesnt know what theyre doing but I read somewhere here that auto tuning can be more damaging than good and that i should do it manually.. what do you say..?? thank you all .338

You should overclock manually. There are guides on how to overclock Sandy Bridge CPUs, you should follow one of them.

I wouldn't recommend using the software programs because if your OC messes up it won't necessarily be the easiest to fix all the time(if it starts up w/ the computer it can crash before you can change the setting) and resetting the CMOS doesn't help like it would for a bios overclock.

 

Software overclocks tend to be very generous with voltages while being modest for the clocks they actually reap from that for the sake of playing it safe with stability because the software can't easily change the settings dynamically as necessary by testing for a lot of different flaws in the OC like we can.

 

SB chips are easily to OC(too easy IMO) so all you should really have to do is up the multiplier and the voltage a little bit as needed. Probably a little bit more to it than that but definitely nowhere near as much as other platforms.

 

Underclocking would be similar but in the opposite direction.

 

Something else you should note is that a lower voltage doesn't always give you better temps, sometimes, it can actually RAISE the temperature.

 

I have my CPU OCd to 4.2ghz right now with 1.225v and it is a much bigger die but my temperatures are right around where yours are load(It's been at 68c on prime95 for the past day though). Even on stock cooling you should be getting better temps then that for where your CPU is downclocked too.

Uninstalling the program entirely should set everything to default again. That or there should be an option in the program itself somewhere. Not sure where that'd be though as I don't use that program.

just drag turbo multiplier back to 38 and set the Vcore back to whatever it is at stock (I believe 1.112V or something like that)

edit: for reference, my Vcore (at stock) is currently at 1.176V

Ok I uninstalled the AI Suite II . . I tried to follow the guide to the best I know how. I ran IBT for 5 passes at max @ 4.5ghZ I havent run Prime 95 yet though. What do you guys think? I dont know how to find the voltage on my Bios though. So I didnt tweak it. Im open for more advice , tips. Again , thanks guys for helping me out. I truly appreciate it.
