General over clock questions, new mobo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I recently installed a gigabyte GA-EP35C-DS3R motherboard with E6600 core 2 duo cpu. This is coupled with a 8800GTS graphics card. As far as experience, if I learn just a little bit about over clocking, I'll know next to nothing. As far as I can see my BIOS doesn't display 1:1 for a choice in the system memory multiplier. But the setting of 2.0 should be the same. Is this correct? Also, I have things like "Robust Graphics Booster", "C.I.A.2", "Performance Enhance" and "System Voltage Control". Should I leave these in their default settings? Lastly, I have been to Gigabyte's website and it's not the greatest resource for information. Anyone know of a good link to understanding my BIOS information? Mine is (Gigabyte) Award F3e.
Well, off to research! This is the beginning!
Thanks and bear with me,

OK, I have the DS3L, almost the same board. I'll see if I can help answer some of you questions.

(1) Yes, setting your memory multi at 2.0 is the setting for 1:1.
(2) Set the Graghics Booster on the regular setting
(3) Disable C.I.A.2., this is an energy saver(I believe)
(4) Set the Performance Enhance to Standard, this will help with stability when you o/c.
(5) You can leave your System Voltage Control on auto for now. You will want to change these settings once you get more comfortable with your bios.

If you want a good link. Here is a really good thread, it is the DS3L, but pretty much the same bios.http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...light=P35-ds3l
Good luck
