Hello to you all
I'm new on this board and new to OC'ing. I had a 3year old P4 2.0GHz machine and figured that it was time for a change. SO now i bought this BEAUTY that's specified down here.
BUT since im all new to this world i have LOTS of doubts. I've managed to achieve 3.2ghz with x9 multi, (and this BIOS is very confusing, i need to put 3.2/9 = 355mhz * 4 = 1425 in the FSB to get this. i dont understand really well Why but its working fine.
So, apart from that, i dont know how to set the timings, and which are better (5-5-5-15? or 4-4-4-12? why? mine are AUTO right now.)
Vcore here is 1.375v, getting 60C max on SpeedFan, ran the machine for 6 hours on OCCT and 2 hours on ORTHOS so i guess it's stable.
Im on stock cooling, but i dont like those temps.. Oh, and i read about this x8 multi, but i tried 1600 (fsb 400) x8 and it wouldnt boot. so i came back to these settings.
Adn what about RAM, again? i guess i left it unlinked and at 800 in the BIOS but CPU-Z reads 400 :~ ***?
Sorry for the lots of doubts, tried to be clear, im kinda in a hurry now so i'll take my time to explain them better.
Thanks already, from a BRAZILIAN overclocker (and it gets very hot round here in Rio)
oh btw, i'm already really happy with 3.2ghz, but i'd like to try 400 x 8 and see if the vcore and temps go down. But anyways, Oblivion runs like HELL here, i've never seen that speed, i'm really in wonderland
HOORAY for E4300
