How about those intels?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am pretty new at OC and taking things very slow and in baby steps. However, that being said I don't want to crack the sound barrier. In Fact if I get 3.2-3.5 mhz stable, I will be very happy. It took me 3 years to save to put this together and I have heard all the stuff about Crossfires vs 8800 and abit vs intel...but this is what I got to work with...so...and what I could afford and the parts I could get readily.

Intel Bad Axe BOXD975XBXLKR
Extreme 6700
2gb Corsair Dom
2 Crossfire 1900x
2 Raptor Raid stripe (150gbx2)
1 Seagate 7200 500gb sata
Antec 900 case.


I bumped my memory to the spec's in latency from Corsair and a very gentle one click up on the voltage. (1.9 to 2.0) It has been great. 4-4-4-12 at 800

Now I have researched every forum and and book I could find and thought I would start with the muliplier. Mine shows 14. Crystacpuid (O% overclock). So I thought I would move it up to 15 in the bios just to see what would happen. Whoops.....now my computer won't post. Working on pulling the bios back up.

What did I do wrong? Are you supposed to backword from 14-13-12-etc in the multiplier? But you don't adjust anything else until after these baby steps?

If anyone has a very similar setup, OC'd close to what I would like...How about I give you an email address and you can print some screens of the the bios now, what you did to get there and I promise not to be some dumb?

Disable things like Intel Speedstep, C1E, Cool and Quiet, Speed Spectrum before you begin your overclocking adventure.

Lock PCI-E to 100Mhz
Lock PCI to 33Mhz

Raise the FSB on the stock multi...and see how far you go, when your FSB becomes the unstable, raise the NB voltage and/or CPU Vcore one notch and continue.

Also, what cooling do you have for the CPU? That is a Quad Core and gets very hot very quickly.

Use Core Temp to monitor your CPU temps....and Orthos Small FFT's for stability.

Wow UK, I just posted this thing.

My CPU has a Themalake Typoon on it, and my case has 4 120mm fans (two at the front, one in the back, one in the side and a huge 200 mm fan on the top. It is pulling the back air from an air conditioner duct in the floor. (It is very hot where I live) and is in an office in the basement. I have looked into fluid cooled, but have not made the jump. The room is always 65 to 68 degrees and so I thought the hurricaine being blasted through it would not be a problem unless I wanted to really push everything.

Ok, now I can show my ignorance. as if no one guessed, didn't I move the stock muliplier from 14 to 15 and now I have lost the post ( and hopefully can reinstate the bios and didn't blow the whole thing up)

I need to tell you that sometimes my spelling or thought may be jumbled a bit and I don't see a speller. I have Multiple Sceloris and miss a key now an then.
Ok, enough of poor me...back to basics. Found the spell corrector....yea

I am going through the bios, but pulled up CrystalCPUID to see what it said before. Like this one(attached) (not mine)it showed a current mulitplier of 14 in current and 14 in original and beneath in overclock it showed 0. So I went into the bios found the multiplier and changed it to 15.

And my bios was easy and looked much the same as the other attached.(also not mine) (Although I have to admit someone should make a Uguru for other bio's besides Abit. I have a friend that it practically setup exactly what he wanted in minutes.)

All seriousness, I do want to do this right, don't and can't afford to buy new stuff because I did something stupid and irresponsible. I will learn if you don't mind dumb questions and I thank you, because this is more than a computer it is my lifeline and entertainment.
