Need some quick help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
How do you increase the vcore voltage? I've checked out the BIOS, but won't give me the option to modify the settings. OC'ed successfully to 3.68 ghz. but when I go higher I'm experiencing the expected restarts.

ECS mobo..... ugh.

If you can't find it in the BIOS, that board likely does not have that option. given that it's ECS, I can't say I am surprised. ECS makes nice boards, but they're not targeting hard core overclockers like us, thus options for overclocking are limited. sorry

Yeah the Asus P4P series was a good one to OC with.Prices on them have fallen alot so you should be able to get one fairly cheap now.
