Overclocking question, vcore?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey well I've reached the max I can oc which is roughly from 2.8ghz to around 3.5ghz and anything more than that and it doesn't boot etc. After reading and following the Intel guide, it says that when this happens you should increase vcore by one, and try again. But I can't seem to find where to change "vcore", under PC Health tab I can see CPU temp etc and then 3 or so values of vcore, but they're all greyed out.

Does my Bios allow me to change vcore? Or am I being stupid again

This doesn't look like a pre-built system

So yes you should be able to change Vcore

Look under some more options
However it should be in the same place as the FSB option.

Don't go over 1.55Vcore and don't go over 55C temps if you do find it
