Manual only allows me to set a % fan speed for temps over 60*C, and a fan %speed for temps under 20*C. It wont let me change the temp markers, which is ridiculous given that it defaults to 20* and 60*C...

I set it to performance, and while it still doesn't change, it locks the CPU fan at 1300 RPM, which after a one hour CPU OCCT CPU test the temps never cracked 53*C.

I did come up with two new questions though:

1.) For an unknown reason, my RAM timings changed drastically in the BIOS after manually setting only the CPU multiplier, CPU viltage, CPU/NB voltage, and NB freq. The timings changed from 7-7-7-21-2T to 9-9-9-33-1T in the BIOS. (among other numbers in there that I don't understand). That seems pretty odd. I took a picture of the original timings in the bios screen before I changed anything tonight. Should I manually change them all back? or did it change them all for a reason? (I really dont understand RAM at all. I just know I bought DDR3 1333 CL7 RAM because I read that CL7 1333 is better for gaming performance than CL9 1600 for example.

2.) If I want to try and hit 4.0ghz by changing the FSB instead of setting the multiplier to 20x, I heard it jacks up your RAM timings to change the FSB, but I cant find a guide that deals with RAM changes when you change the FSB, Any help there gentlemen (and ladies)?

P.S. Thanks for being awesome forum members, like usual!

First things first, it sounds like your motherboard is from the stone age tongue.gif

I would recommend using the multiplier as a novice, it's at least a thousand times easier. Also I don't know why your ram timings loosened so much when you adjusted the CPU/NB. Try setting them manually, but know this, my system benches higher with CL11 1600(Yes I know, I haven't tried to get it to CL9 yet) than it does with CL7 1333. However while overclocking set your fan to run at "Performance" as that sounds like your best option right now. Another thing though, does your motherboard have heatsinked VRM's? If it does not, then I would advise either heat sinking them or not overclocking. I would recommend at least a 4+1 Phase motherboard as well.

EDIT: Also, about the LLC setting, just set the CPU voltage higher to compensate for vDroop then. I'm going to bed now, so I'll continue to help you out tomorrow biggrin.gif

It's actually a pretty stout older motherboard, 8+1 power phases thumb.gif
I dunno about LLC options on it though - I'll check the manual.
In order to simplify things i think i would just try upping the multiplier to start with and bump the v core a little smile.gif

And stay under 55C and 1.55v thumb.gif

Meh

I set the Multiplier to 19x (3.9ghz) and voltage to 1.55v and it ran a full 1 hour OCCT test maxing out at 55*C.

Setting it to 20x multi BSOD about 3 minutes in.

Looks like if I want hat 4.0ghz I need to learn to change the FSB and figure out that impact on RAM. Anyone willing to enlighten in this thread or PM?
