What "auto's" do I need to disable?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
In the bios when it comes to overclocking I know there are alot of settings such as cpu voltage that come set on "auto"

using a Asus P5B board what settings should I take off "auto" in the bios to overclock better. I know this is a noob question and I know you guys have alot of faqs so I'm not asking ya to re-type alot of information just asking a basic question. Is it possible to overclock as well while leaving things on auto?

To be honest, all I really want or my goal is to get my E6600 to 3.0 ghz with air coolong (Big Typhhon)

I agree. Auto means the board will change the settings as it sees fit, and this is not always the best settings.

For sure you want your Vcore, Vdimm, RAM speed and timings off AUTO, at minimum. The chipset voltages would do well to be off AUTO as well, what I recomend is to set them to the lowest setting they allow (chipset ones, not Vcore and Vdimm) and run at elast 12 hours of dual Prime tests to make sure those settings are stable.
