Startoff settings for 1156 socket i5 760

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey!

I want to dive into overclocking for the first time with my Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 and a i5 760. The reason I want to overclock is ofcourse to get a little more performance until the release of Haswell and my graphic cards might be a little bottlenecked but I'm not sure of that. rolleyes.gif

The questions related to the pictures atached to this post:

1. Are these voltages high enough to start with? And can I lower/higher the voltages as soon as I find out the overclock is stable/unstable?

2. Is this baseclock setup the best or is it better to have a lower baseclock and a higher clock ratio? (181*21=3801 Mhz)

2. Is this ram frequency good for the RAM because it is neither a PC-10666 or PC-12800 frequency? I'm kinda confused about that.

3. Is the PCI-E frequency good or do I have to leave it on auto?

4. How about Load Line Calibration to reduce the vDroop, should I disable this or enable? Read somewhere that disabled is better.

Thanks in forward I would really appreciate the help!

1. You can always try and lower the voltage for a start. You should be fine till 1.45v or so either way, as long as temps permit.
2. I found that a higher baseclock and a multiplier of 20 worked better for me (less vCore for the same speed) on a i5 750 on a UD3H or something like that.
3. You're fine to run the RAM at inbetween if that's what you mean? You always nearly will with FSB overclocking. I'd suggest to try running the memory within spec (so lower the memory multiplier) - for now.
If you can't try to loosen the timings and run it at those speeds without boosting the FSB up. (I guess try it with using higher RAM multipliers) simply because that allows you to know what frequency can be done on the RAM itself. Alternatively you could do both at the same time, personally I never had problems with that (going a bit over the RAM's specified limits) but not a lot.
Again on the RAM, try adding some more voltage to the sticks/IMC if you're overclocking that also.
4. Set that to "Normal" or 100 (I think that's what it's meant to be)
5. Disabled gets vdroop, usually on 25% it's good. Extreme is really bad though yes.

Just test around with voltages from where you are, you've already made a good start

EDIT: Hope that helps! thumb.gif

Ok thx! +rep

I think ill try baseclock 200 and multiplier 19 to start with. smile.gif

Cheers, as I said though that was just the chip + board that I only had for a day or so. I didn't really test it much but that was the general idea that I got. You might like to try for the magical 4GHz?

I can try that but what would be my max vtt because my current vtt (1.210) is the max according to my mobo. Anything higher and the voltages would appear in pink/red.

Ah okay, I'm not too familiar with P55 boards and the such. Googling gives off that 1.21v is the max suggested VTT for 24/7 use. Usually when a board does that I'd suggest to even go a few settings lower. What is the stock VTT?

I would do 200 baseclock, I find thats a good clock for most of these bards. Then try and get your multi to 20 or 21 if you can. With a good CPU cooler you can probably push a good amount of voltage to it. you will probably need around 1.34-1.42 v-core in the bios for it to be stable.
