Greetings fellow gaming rig lovers. I am still new to my computer's bios settings and features. I have a MSI P55-GD65 Lynnfield i5 750, 8gb Gskill Ripjaw 1600, and MSI GTX 650 Ti . I was lucky to get this rig, My brother gave it to me after he built himself a new rig. So I went straight to this computer from a old Nexar with a Intel Celeron 950 MHz, 384mb Ram, and the mighty integrated intel 810 Chipset. The bios on the Nexar was easy, Overclocking only required me to change 2 settings. I was only able to set the Nexar from 950 to 1.02ghz because if I set it any higher the onboard sound would stop working. But I think it would go to 1.2ghz. So I have been looking over my settings and a while back I figured out how to get my ram to 1600. After getting my ram to 1600 I noticed the clock speed still at 2.67ghz And I finally figured out what was holding it to 2.67ghz it was called Speed step or something My bios has weird abbreviations (So please correct me if I am wrong) Anyway I disabled that and now my cpu is at 3.21 ghz. I have the vcore on auto and it is at 1.28. I hope it is not to high but my temps are at 35c to 55 load. I have the stock cooler but I have 4 other case fans plus a new fan I added to pull air in. And it is set to blow right at the cpu and helped tremendously. I hope it is safe running 3.2 with ram at 1600 on a older lynnfield i5 750. Cause my games are getting great fps now and I hope to leave it at this setting.

Below is a txt of my CPUZ report.
