Overclock newb...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay so I have started into the world of overclocking and I just installed a corsair H60 liquid cooling system.

Here are my specs... I am wanting to OC my CPU to around 4Ghz and have is stable... its at 3.0ghz stock.

FYI the ram was bought in two sets not a whole complete 8GB set. So I purchased two 4GB kits (2 x 2GB)

Specs are posted below for the parts... a few questions at the end..

CPU:
Processor Number E8400
# of Cores 2
Clock Speed 3 GHz
L2 Cache 6 MB
Bus/Core Ratio 9
FSB Speed 1333 MHz
FSB Parity No
Instruction Set 64-bit
Embedded Options Available Yes
Lithography 45 nm
Max TDP 65 W
VID Voltage Range 0.8500V-1.3625V

RAM:
Tech Spec G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Capacity: 8GB (4 x 2GB)
Speed: DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Cas Latency 8
Timing 8-8-8-24
Voltage 1.5V
ECC No


Motherboard:
EVGA 790i ultra SLI



Currently I have been looking at how to overclock properly...
I have my PCIe locked in to the 100Mhz like the intel guide said too..
ALSO I have left my timings for my RAM at auto and have kept the LINKED state with the RAM and CPU FSB. not sure if that is the optimal resolution for overclocking but that's why I'm creating this thread...
I try to set my FSB from 1333 to 1335 and it even blue screens... It's like I can't overclock at all I don't get it... please help?


Thank you!!
