I just can't Overclock, Lol its not funny!

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
This may sound like a very SERIOUSly funny question, but it is very SERIOUS lol

I got into my BIOS and into CPU Configuration and it shows my cpu speed and cache size. Underneath i have the options for DRAM config (were i can change my ram timings) and hyperthreading (1x - 5x) and to disable/enable cool n quiet. Nowere in the BIOS can i choose to change my HTT or my FSB or anything else i might need.

I have looked all over the BIOS this is meant to be an OC'ing board, so have i missed something lol

Thanks. Iced

could be in the Dram settings.

usually asus boards have a thign where you gotta change the options from "basic" or "simple" or something...to "advanced" or "custom"

Look for that.

Ahh yea its in the jumperfree config. Thanks man.

I need a basic OC to do.....could you give me some advice on a basic OC or should i just read a guide?

If you want to help here is the info

My idle temp is 25 - 26C load is 32 - 34C.
HTT - 1000 (but i cant change this for some reason)
FSB 200
11x Multi
1.4V
2.5/5/3/3 Ram Timings.

Also my pciE is at 100mhz, ive heard i have to lock this but there is not option to lock it, just options to change the MHz

Thanks, Iced

Reading the guide will help familiarize yourself with the terms, but it appears you are pretty much up to date on the lingo.

Make sure Cool n Quiet is disabled, and that thermal throttling is disabled (if available in bios).

You will not have to worry about your PCI-E frequency, it will remain at 100 regardless of FSB.

There should be an option somewhere to change the HTT multiplier from 5 (which is why it reads 1000 currently) down to 4. This should give you some headroom for HTT frequency.

I don't know how well your ram overclocks, but setting your ram to run on a divider 166/200 or something similar will also give you some headroom on the FSB. Once you have your ram turned down a bit and your HTT turned down, you can start to increase your FSB by ~5 MHz at a time til it won't boot into windows. At the point where it won't boot into windows, increase your cpu voltage one increment and try again. Overclocking is an iterative process, you will need to "rinse and repeat" a number of times.

leave that at 100mhz and youll be good,

read the faqs on ocing (or the guides i should say), that board is a pretty good ocer the only thing it lacks is the high vcore on some of the cpus but other then that it is pretty good

A get started OC;

BIOS-Advanced-CPU Confuration-
Leave DRAM Auto ( For now )
Hyper Transport fequency to x4
cool & Quiet disabled

Advanced-Jumperfree-manual-
CPU - 220
cpumulti x11
CPU - 1.4
PCI clock 33.3

That should get you started. Google OCCT or prime95 to get stress test program to test your new OC.

Bear in mind that your 3700 stepping may not be the best and you might not get a high OC.

I hope I didn't miss any thing.

Oh yeah, use what I posted along side the FAQs

Even a crummy stepping will hit 2.7GHz.
