DFI DK overclocking guide

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I am a new overclocker. I bumped up the CPU to 2.8 but want to overclock further. Are there any simple guides for my board? I have searched the web but thought someone here could be of help.

I know this board is not good for a beginner but a friend recommended it and I figured I should be able to figure the basics out.
Thx

That link is useful but is there such a thing as a guide that gives step by step for overclocking a DFI board?

i still am baffled mathamatically by the dram dividers and such lol

lets say im at 450 fsb , x9 id have 4ghz

and my memory would be 800mhz if in 1:1 ?
if my plan was to get 4ghz and have 1000mhz or higher on the ram, what would my divider be??

5:6 right? that woudl give me total of 1080 mhz ram, and 4.05ghz cpu right??

On my bios there is no CPU VID CONTROL which is the main CPU voltage control. I thought maybe I have an older bios version but I haven't been able to figure out Winflash to update it. Or maybe the DFI DK P35 doesn't have that bios setting control. If it did then it would make sense to start increasing the voltage there correct?
Man its tuff being a rookie at this.

I don't seem to getting an aswer on this. Maybe I am not asking my question correctly.

My old Asus A8N-SLI was so easy but the bios the voltage settings is more complex on this board.

SB 1.05V
SB core/cpu pll voltage
NB core voltage
CPU VTT voltage
Clockgen voltage control

Which one do I increase first or do I bump several of them at the same time? I am looking for a simple description of what I need to do with these settings to further overclock.

You shouldn't need any additional voltages(cept vcore) until > 430fsb, my experience.

Then I wonder why I can't get past 350? I have recently added two more sticks of the same memory and its not stable. I bumped up the DRAM voltage to 2.1 and that helped a bit but still crashes.
Maybe there is something wrong with my MB?
