How the h*ll do I properly overclock this thing? so many features?
the bios has more features than I am familiar with and half of them I can't seem to change. my MOBO has a EZ over clock switch that is supposed to increase (FSB I think) 5% to 20% but i saw no difference in bios, cpuz or amd overdrive after changing this.
using amd overdrive doesn't seem to change anything permanently either.
the only thing that seems to have any permanent effect is changing the cpu multiplier in the bios this shows up in amd overdrive and cpuz.
started at 14x (2800mhz 26C-29C) now at 16.5 (3300mhz 23C-24C), no change to volts-1.3250
I haven't updated bios yet(after looking at msi website not sure how, i don't have a usb flash drive).
using 'core temp .99.04' .
Fsb is stuck at 200Mhz, bios says 240mhz but is grayed out. quick search didn't give great results for forums or any google guides. does anyone have my MOBO? any threads closely related to my overclocking? what programs should i be using to monitor temps and what not?
and when i use the "overclocking center" software that came with my MOBO I get a very anoying alarm sound as soon as i open it and if i change the FSB(base clock) it doesn't seem to have a permanat affect.
My digital camara is on vacation with my old lady, windows 7 seems to have a good snipping tool, what is the best way to ad screen shots(jpegs) to posts(thread guide anywhere?)
I guess my MOBO is pretty new, micorcenter just put them out yesterday, still haven't figure out how the side port memory works.
and how do I change my ram settings everything in bios there is grayed out too. ram looks like its only at 533mhz 'dram frequency'
LOTS of questions... should I make a new thread(s)?
Thanks in advance...
