Yeah, SLI is def. enabled, though I thought there would be some gain even if my CPU is underclocked by 15mhz.

I will point out that Thlnk3r will suggest you change "Center Spread" to "Disabled" while overclocking. I personally always left it on, but I defer to his experience on other people's systems.

As to your earlier question of CPU temperatures, in CoreTemp, never permit the temperature to exceed 71º C. Ever. Not even for a second. (A second might not cause any damage, but I am paranoid about temperatures.) A good goal to shoot for is the low-to-middle 60s.

As for the "in excess," yes, I do mean greater than that. Most Manchesters I see run happiest around 2.5-2.6 GHz. Some do get up to 2.7 GHz or even 2.8 GHz on air cooling, but those are the exception and not the norm.
Okay I looked and looked I really believe my bios doesnt support it. It might be out of date? Can I update a bios?

When I boot it says GA-K8N-PRO SLI F3

Here is the update page

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...ProductID=1883

Do I update to f10?

I saw in a forum its easier to overclock if you have at least f6 bios.

Can I just download and install the bios? or Do I have to reformat in order to do so.

EDIT: I Apparently mistaken the bios for chipset sinces those are installed after a fresh reformat.

I have an outdated bios and I think thats why I dont see the HTT Multiplier.
Ill take a look again for the option, I dont know "how" and rather not flash my bios.

It it possible to just ramp up the mhz from 200 in 10 intervals and just run orthos to check for stability? possible increase voltage as well?

or is there usually only one "safe" overclock method?

Pez, In order to see your SLI really working use 3dmark03. 3dm03 is almost entirely GPU based, youll notice HUGE increases from 1 card to 2.
You can also use 3dmark05, and you will still see large increases from 1 card to 2.
And in 3dm06, I didnt notice increases until I started OCing. Obviously the higher the OC the better the score but thats more due to the clock speed and not the GPU's.

Well I just got my DFI CFX3200 in the mail, Im putting her together as we speak. Also, got my new case Cooler Master Centurion 590 . Its actually a really nice case for $50. Granted its not as nice as my Asus Vento case but then again the CM case didnt cost $150 either. This case appears to be true modders case, it has provisions for 4 140mm and 2 120mm fans. It also has provisions for water cooling. All in all not to bad.

TxtmstrJoe, I've been doing some reading on the CFX3200 board and was recalling your plight with the ULI SATA controller. Which SATA port(s) are you using? Ports 1-4 (the ones on the right side of the board) are controlled by the ULI chip and ports 5-8 (bottom of the board) are controlled by the Silicon Image Sil 3114 chip. I was wondering if you've tried using these or not. Maybe that'll take care of your problem. Hope this helps

Allright, allright, allright! CFX 3200 up and running! Havent done any overclocking yet, Im just happy that it works!

But only one problem with this board. The guy didnt send the retention bracket for the Karjan audio module . Does anyone know where I could get one? I suppose I could use my XFi but Id still rather have that thing attached to the board so theres not a hole in the center of my I/O shield.

Yep thats right thats exactly what theyll need.

As for your rig, how come your at 12x multiplier? I thought the FX60 had an unlocked multiplier and ran natively @ 16x?
I would imagine that you could easily get past 3.0 ghz.
