Need help with overclocking!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, im new at overclocking but since my cpu starts pulling me down in some games i would like to try to overclock.

OS: Win7
CPU: i5 2500K
Mobo: Gigabyte PH67-DS3 B3

I KNOW, PH67 is locked etc etc BUT, in the manual it says:
"GIGABYTE PH67-DS3-B3 motherboards is designed and engineered to deliver exceptional performance and clarity for your computing needs. Powered by the Intel® P67 chipset with support for 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processors, GIGABYTE PH67-DS3-B3 enjoy uniquely developed technologies such as Smart 6 , DualBIOS technology and Ultra Durable 2 design just to name a few, that ensure a reliable and enjoyable computing experience."

So after looking around i noticed that i couldnt change the clock ratio to more than x37, however i can change the BCKL but as i understand it from reading lots of other posts that wouldnt not be a good idea.

I also had a friend telling me there's some switch on the mobo (dont know if he was talking about a button or an other place to rewire the cables to, sorry for lack of english knowledge when it comes to overclocking terms tongue.gif). was he bull****ting or is there a way to allow me going over x37 by using this switch?

Is updating bios an option?


Thanks for your time, i will appriciate all help that i can get.
With Best Regards, Jesper.

I have no idea what "switch" he was talking about. some motherboards have a dual bios option but it isnt any different. its just 2 copies for if one gets screwed sideways somehow. But you can do base clock overclocks, you do have to note that it will change some things with it, your memory will change and get higher clocked and such. the base clock on a cpu is what other clocks tend to sync with so if the base clock raises the clocks that sync with it will also raise. it takes a bit more time to do but it is still a valid overclocking method, you just have to test both the cpu and ram to make sure they are stable. Just note that your board might not be as stable to do heavy overclocking and also overclocking could put alot more strain on the board, ESPECIALLY if it doesnt have adequate vrm cooling so just do note that. you can add small copper or aluminium heatsinks to the vrm to help keep the temps in check though. hope this helps
