Hey all ..
Can definitly use some help here !!
Finally put together the rig in my sig, and after getting it up and running, Im now ready to overclock. I have never worked with an i7 before nor a Bloodrage, so Im a complete beginner.
When I try some settings from people who posted here, I get a "Overclock Detected, Entering Safe Mode (or something similar) long before even getting to the desktop. So, basically I cant try anything.
I also noticed in CPU-ID my speed is all over the place. 1 minute its 1.7ghz, the next its 2.5ghz. Also, Im pretty sure my ram settings are not optimal. Im seeing 6-6-6-16 instead of 9-9-9-24 and the fsb:dram ratio is 2:8 ...
If anyone out there would be kind enough to msg me some exact step-by-step plans in detail (like what menu in bios, what setting, etc .. exactly) .. that would be awesome. Id probably need a full setup including my ram settings.
Im running P09 Bios if that makes a difference. And everything is at stock so far (except my 5870 which I bumped to 900/1300 in CCC)
Hope to hear from someone !!! Id be happy with 3.7ghz or higher
