Need Some OC'ing Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay I have some settings in my Bios that I need some help with.

The first thing I noticed is a setting called "Enhanced Power Slope" and by default is set to Disabled. It says "When enabled will provide higher current to the CPU" Does anyone know what this is for?

The second problem I'm having is with voltage. I have two different voltages and I'm not sure which one I should raise in case of lockups.

One is called "CPU Voltage Override" and it says "This sets the CPU Voltage (VID)" This is the one I thought I should raise but after reading NoAffinity's guide he says to up the vcore a notch if you experience instability. Which brings me to my second voltage.

Its called "Front Side Bus voltage Override" and it says "This sets the MCH V_core voltage"

So is this the one I should raise or is the CPU Voltage Override the one I should raise? By the description it looks to me like the "CPU Voltage Override" would be the correct choice but the "Front Side Bus Voltage Override" is the one that says Vcore voltage like in NoAffinity's guide.

suggestions?

You were right on the first one, the CPU Voltage Override is for the cpu and should be the main one to raise first. Upping the Front Side Bus should be your northbridge and can help with stability, especially when overclocking your ram.
