Asus A8n SLI - Deluxe Preset OC %

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I overclocked (Not a real OC) for the 1st time last night. I was up late installing my new Zalman 9700 LED so I didn't have time to start the proper OC process.

Instead, I found an option in the Bios 1012 for Preset OCing. I pushed it up to 8% OC. Everything seemed to be working well. The temp was hovering around 34 Degrees C. The CPU jumped from 2200 to 2376. Has anyone else used these bios presets?

Hopefully this weekend I'll have time to do a proper OC and not this preset one. Then I can post all my info and hopefully I can get some help to maxamize my OC.

You will learn well here
What can be bit of a pain with AMDs is 4 RAM modules. It may hold you bacl a bit but there is plenty of room to OC your system

For intel, the ASUS boards tend to give higher voltages for the preset overclocks than is necessary, I believe. But I am not sure if the same goes for AMD.

Is there a target CPU Temp that people aim for?

Bermando, I usually like to keep my load temp below 46C. In regards to the asus bios settings, I have that similiar board just not the deluxe and I did all my oc settings manually. I have not tried the presets. My load temp atm is 42C with 30C ambient.

Good luck.
