Overclock everything...Where to start

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been roaming the forums on and off for quite some time now. I have done some pretty generic OCing via presets in the BIOS. Now I am ready to some more mature OCing. I don't want to set records, but I would like to squeeze a little more out of my rig. Sig Rig is current setup. I also know that my MoBo is not made for any kind of extreme overclocking as well, like I said, I just want to squeeze a little more out.

Currently, all I have done is turn the multiplier to 38 and activate XMP. I have done nothing to the GPU. Prime95 temps for the 3.8ghz clock is 42 degrees max.

Do I need to update BIOS before moving any further?
Should I disable the XMP before moving forward with CPU OC?

Thanks in advance...

Okay, last night I set the multiplier to 45 and set the voltage to 1.4. Ran Prime95 overnight, temps maxed out at 66degrees Celsius(slight variation over the cores, 2 and 3 were maxed at 66 and 1 and 4 were maxed at 62). I left the memory at 1600mhz. Question now is, do I start turning the voltage back down to see if it is still stable? Will that help achieve lower temps? I think I will be happy with 4.5ghz.

RAM: is there anyway or point to overclocking my memory? If so, how should I go about doing it? I set the multiplier to 18.66 and the BIOS would not fire. So I reset the multiplier back to auto and turned XMP back on and upon reboot, all was well and the memory was running @ 800mhz x2

GPU: I used AB to crank the Core, Shader, and memory clocks. I was able to turn them all the way up and had no crashes while running Vantage or 3D Mark 11. I was unable to turn up voltages for some reason. Is there something I am missing here?

okay sorry for the late reply lol

so yes i mean if you are absolutely nuts about heat see how low you can get with stability; 66 is personally high for me considering most tj max's are 70-75C

2. ahhh a very debated question....., put simply these are the reasons to oc ram: 1. if you do hardcore editing (like myself) your projects, i.e. what i am paid to do, heavily depends on how fast my ram can store my render and then send to cpu blah blah, stuff and things. So yes if you use programs that are balls to the wall dependent on ram oc it you will generally see an improvement in your tasks. 2. if you oc ram it potentially "unlocks" a little bit of room to oc your cpu, tis happens because many people see thier cpu become stable at a certain point when they know the cpu can go much further, essentially the lower speeds of the ram bottle neck the cpu to a point where its unstable, so ocing ram can potientially add some room to your cpu clocks.

now to go about doing this, do the same steps as cpu ocing but there is an added step of changing the ram timings; best option is to you tube it rather than me write hundreds of words trying to explain it through test.

3. hmm, not sure whats going on, try using msi after burner and msi kombuster to oc and test stability; see if the problem persists
