First build and now OC, help please!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi I just finished my first build and would now like to try an OC. If you would let me know some good settings or give any advice, such as how high i can go on stock cooling (would not like to upgrade yet) that would be great

I'm using an E6600 with 2 gigs of OCZ pc2-8500 reaper

set cpu:ram ratio to 1:1, then increase cpu speed by 10mhz at a time.keep an eye on your temps,55c should be the limmit for safe temps.then see how far you can go without increasing vcore.

The only thing i was wondering is how to keep my memory running at 1066 mhz like it is now. Wouldn't lowing the ratio to 1:1 drastically decrease my memory speed? Is there say a ratio that would work well for both my memory and cpu?

Thanks

after you find a good and stable fsb that you want you can change ratio to whatever, but 1:1 ratio insures your ram is not going to get in the way.

then set it to 1066 and keep it there.unless its because you tweaked your ratio,coz it will change as you oc if its cpu:ram ratio.

Ok so now I'm starting, and I will do as u said, change the ratio to 1:1 and get the cpu Oc before worrying about memory. I'm just wondering where that ratio is. theres a CPU ratio, but it says 9, and so I'm guessing thats my multiplyer.
I'm using an Asus P5k Deluxe.

it may just give you the Mhz like say a 533mhz but if you look at your rams speed it will say 300Mhz if you have fsb on 300, that would be 1:1. my mb only has 1066,800,533 options for ram ratio. if i set it to 533 its acts like a 1:1 ratio. but i'm not familiar with that mb so don't know for sure. can you throw up a screeny of your bios??
