New overclocker...........

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I built my first computer ever about 2 weeks ago, here are the specs....
CPU: Q6600
MotherBoard: XFX nForce 780i
RAM: OCZ SLI 4GB PC6400 DDR2 800Mhz
Graphics Card: BFG Nvidia 9800 GTX

So after about 2 weeks of using my computer everything running smoothly, and I am now ready to overclock.... My CPU at full use never went above 32 degrees celsius and my system never went about 33 degrees celsius.

I have read all the info about overclocking and now wish to do so. Here is my first attempt to overclock. I know I messed up on something so please correct me if I did something wrong.


Bus Speeds:
CPU core: 3006MhZ
FSB: 1336Mhz
Memory: 1049Mhz

Voltages
CPU: 1.3750v
Memory: 2.1v
FSB: 1.3v


Thanks in advance

that's about right =)

However, if you run the FSB at 1368, you'll get the most efficient bootstrap, giving you the most bandwidth for the RAM... until you get over the ~1450 mark i think.

Nice work! be sure to fill in your system specs under quick links->edit profile..

+rep for the efforts

Ok i changed the FSB to what you said.

Sorry to pester with another question but I was reading about how people change their RAM in a way such as X-X-X-X.

That's referring to memory timings. If you are able to drop timings from say 5-5-5-18 to 4-4-4-12 without having to drop clock rate, you've effectively overclocked your memory.

What is the best I can get out of memory timing with my ram?

OCZ SLI 4GB PC6400 DDR2 800Mhz

Or do you have to play with it?

You will have to play with your RAM timings and speeds and test it too. Also if you want to reach speeds as high as 3.6Ghz on your quad you will have to buy a CPU cooler such as the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme or Tuniq Tower.

i currently have Zalman CNPS9700NTUniversal Cooler and 6 120mm 2k rpm fans running in the computer OC'd at 3.0Ghz the processor under full load only gets to about 39 degrees celsius. I hope im safe enough to get to 3.4Ghz
