Hi there ... there are a few examples around here with similar setups...

Using the OC tools for the Asus will only get you a little way, so best get your self under the hood and grab that MB, telling it who is boss

To do this check out the FAQ on the A8N MB, see link in me Sig, - while based upon the Deluxe the Asus principles are the same.

Also work through the FAQ in finding you Max of a system - link in sig.

And read through these threads ...

Asus 3700+

Asus FX57

Asus X2 4800

There is plenty of reading to do and then testing and more testing... ask Qs as they come up and you will get some help....


BTW... your posts will get answered it just takes time sometimes... so best wait for at least 24hrs before bumping it ...

The very last part that NCSA said is very important.

Its all about the testing and testing and trying new things till you can get the sweet spot for all your componants.

If you are concerned with the settings, or dont know what some of them mean, here is a guide that NCSA wrote
http://www.overclock.net/faqs/38169-...roduction.html

Before your start ripping into that machine, you need to read everything.

Look at what others have overclocked to, be sure to look into their cooling and all around set ups.

If you have problems just post, dont feel limited to what others have done, try some new things and new configs.

Its all up to you, so be sure to be unique.

good luck overclocking, and show us how you do.
