Hello from Jersey

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I been searching few tips for OC on 960T..this is my first build PC and really looking foward to it.
basically, for playing Diablo III:thumb:
Since, I'm married and I have limited budget to build..redface.gif (most money spending on buy diapers..)
I Just bought ASUS M5A97, 960T, Seagate Barracuda 1TB, EVGA 550Ti, Cooler master 212+ CPU cooler at Mirocenter.
and bought Rosewill Ranger, G.Skill ripjawr 8gig, OCZFatalty 750W, OCZ Agility SSD 60GB from Newegg
All come down to $632.99 include Diablo 3 pre-ordered, Thanks to all MIR and gift card from Newegg biggrin.gif:thumb.gif

I will use my DVDrom from my old P4 pc. I really want to have better GPU..but couldn't get it, due to budget
Microcenter dont have 550Ti Superclock model..hopefully I can play Diablo with decent graphic setting.

Found many good treads here, regarding the OC..now, I dont want to unlock hexcore, since not much different having a quad.
I just do OC on CPU.

can't wait to play diablo 3 with my first build PC. all red LED inside thumb.gif

Have a great day all

hey, welcome to ocn. i'm from jersey, too.

anyways, if you are using stock cpu cooler, you can just raise the multiplier up until you can't boot. 3.7GHz might only require stock volts or around 1.2 - 1.27v.

for a quick 4GHz IF using a better cooler, try this . . .


- go back to bios and set everything to default
- disable the following - C1E, Turbo, HT, Cool & Quiet, and Turbo V (if present)
- set your vcore to 1.38v or 1.4v (try 1.38 first)
- raise your Multiplier to 20
- the fsb should be at 200 (Default)
- save and exit.

hope it boots. monitor your temp using programs like hw monitor. WATCH the TEMPS.

for proper oc'ing use this guide . . .
