Overclocking first timer!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just updated my system specs, and would like to start the over clock with the CPU to put my liquid cooling to use! Im just looking for a highly stable over clock at the moment. I would love any solid advice!

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, sure..

VCore - 1.4v
FSB - 400*9 = 3.6GHz
NBv - Stock
FSBv - Stock
Ram - Unlinked w/ a 2* Multiplier

Try that and tell us if you get into windows.

Try to get back into the bios to reset everything. If you can't get into the bios you'll have to reset the cmos battery on the motherboard by removing it or using the jumper.

Well I thought I knew what I was doing but aparently not. Where do I got to change the cpu to
FSB - 400*9 = 3.6GHz
I found a multiplier but it had a max of 8 and no numbers to attribute to it so I assume I had the wrong thing.
