New to Overclocking trying to learn..Can I do much overclocking with this?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a water cooled system I built back in 2008, and I have a number of newer systems I have since built but was wondering what I might gain from overclocking this one. I have tried some of the bios "instant over clocking" options but even at the lowest over clock of 5% the system will not boot. Using the Aegis Panel, I can set overclock from 3003.27 MHz, (default) to 3050MHz and it will blue screen. Memory clock default is 1335 MHz, PCIE Clock default is 100 MHz.

Voltage,
VCC3V 3.36v
CPU 1.16v
DRAM 1.66v
NB 1.26v
+5V 4.96v
+12V 12.14v
+3.3VSB 3.36v
VBAT 3.17v

I did a lot of reading and many people with the same motherboard, Foxconn Blackops, stated that the voltage was the big issue and that the default voltages were wrong. I don't want to cook the board due to not knowing what to do so I am asking for some help with those of you that are pros at this. The system specs can be seen below. Even with hours of hard blackops 2 gaming the cores run about 46 to 48c. The video card runs at 50 to 55c. I am using the Big water 760is water cooling system on this board. Power supply is Corsair TX750. Ram is Mushkin 996601 xP3 12800 7-7-6-18 1.85-1.95v


Thanks for any help!!

Well I'm not the best person to advice on 775 socket stuff but here's some advice to get the ball rolling.

First ditch the Aegis Panel. Software overclocking sucks big time. Do it the real way from the BIOS.

775 stuff with locked multipilers are OC'd by upping the FBS clock. I'm guessing its called Bus Clock on your motherboard. Even with boned stock voltages you should be able to bump up the CPU clock speed a step or two.

When you encounter instability you bump up the vcore a step.

To get in to serious OC speeds you are probably going to have to do some adjustments to the ram. I'm not to familiar with the voltage settings for the 775 memory controller so you will have to wait for someone else's advice on that. In the mean time you can get more stability out of ram by loosening the timings.

Also what BSOD where you getting when you tired to run 3050MHz?
