post #5651 of 5659
Hi there
I'm new at overclocking but for the detail in this guide is great. WTG Robilar.
Now my question is what should be a good overclocking Configuration with my System?
plz consider that I'm super new in overclocking so is like you talking with a child
special the memory timing settings and CPU

Please helpppp, I only just found this forum, basically I was wondering if I could do a cheap upgrade on my system by buying an E8400 quad, faster memory? and possibly 1 or 2 GTX460 SLi cards?
otherwise it's a new rampage board or something an i5 a 6970 etc etc..but thats a load of dosh.
I have always had trouble with memory with this board I have in fact 4 sticks of ram but it was always unstable with lots of blue screens when I played Company of heroes etc that would use all the ram. I even got 2 sticks replaced by Crucial after runnign some test but still no difference. Although I read some where int his forum that might be down to too low a voltage, jez after all this time of trying I'd be amazed if it was that simple.

So any ideas on a shopping list for this board? how fast could I get it to go or is it not worth it?

I'd really appreciate any help, want to order before the VAT increase..
Cheers

I can only offer my experiences...and that was that although the board was a demon with a core 2 duo and 2 sticks of RAM, the moment extra RAM was introduced or when I plonked in a Q6600 I had endless issues

No matter what I tried, it seemed like my board just couldn't supply a reliable voltage to either the chip or RAM.
The board is currently in my wife's system with the original E6600 and 3 sticks of RAM in it (it keeps killing OCZ SLI 1066 sticks, I've RMA'd several ) and even though I down clock the RAM at a paltry 600MHz or so it blue screens every day. (It's stable with 2x1Gb RAM but that's not enough for games and I'm loathe to throw any more money at this board!)

Honestly - I'd recommend sticking it out a bit longer with this board and save up the pennies for a new board and chip next year. You'll get so much more FPS per £ if you change platform... (Note that I have a Q6600 at 3.5GHz and a GTX 570 on a Gigabyte 775 board and really need to change platform too - I think Core 2 isn't pushing this card hard enough!)

Also the VAT change isn't going to make much difference to prices - even if you spent £600 ex VAT the difference between 17.5% and 20% VAT on top will only be £15! Ignore all the VAT BS, it's just sellers trying to drum up business to improve their Q4 2010 figures

It did better with XP and two sticks. Lots of people had trouble pushing C2Qs past 3.4ghz. I'd upgrade ur mobo and CPU. At the time, it was just about the best C2D overclocking board. The NB gets pretty unstable past 400 FSB, so you may need to raise stock NB voltage +1 notch, but that also makes the NB pretty hot. I ended up throwing an aftermarket cooler on it.

Slytown & Darkjedi, thanks so much for the feedback guys, yes I also realised it's killed one of my extra sticks of ram today trying once again to get them going.
At least I know what to do now, it's how much I can justify on a new rig My mate keeps going on about how good his games look in Direct x 11..

hmm time to do some more research on what to buy instead thanks again guys..

No worries

As I'm sure you know the NDA Sandy Bridge lifts at the beginning of January so it's definitely worth waiting for the launch of those boards and chips, as the rumours indicate they should be pretty sweet (and at the very least the current 1156 i5 stuff should get a bit cheaper to make room! )

Hey, what are the NB and SB temps suppose to be like? NB is usually 60C and goes up to 71C during gaming while SB is normally 58C and barely ever goes over 60C. These can't be okay, can it? And I searched this whole thread for "temp" and was surprised to get no results.

They are quite correct, rather, they are even pretty low.

In my experience, after hours of mid-to-high load, the NB reaches even 80° (and the mobo is still operative after nearly 4y without problems).
If you stay somewhat below the 90° peak you will be in the "safe-zone".
