New here my 1st post. Sorry I do not type well etc. Looks like a nice thread, thanks. I had been waiting on a new vid card maybe a nv 570 or ti560 before I try and over clock some, might never happen tho. The vid card that is.
I had seen both Linus I5 videos at YouTube, just vid 1 near same mobo but he was using 4 stix of memory at 1.65v and I think vid 2 was I7 and HT on a Giga mobo.
* Part 2 is on page #8 post 75http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Llqhe...mbedded#at=121
4GHz is what I wanted to shoot for from the start. I have seen near exact mobo and same cpu I5 750 same cooler @ better than 4.2GHz but was using corsair ram. 4 is my goal but would be happy with 3.8GHz. I think it should do the 4 pretty easy tho. This Crucial ram is said very MSI friendly and said follows along and over clocks well too. I know my way around in the bios pretty good and plan to copy and print any info I might need before I try and over clock my rig.
Most all I do is play pc games and make game play videos. Games like Borderlands GOTY FO3 GOTY Stalker games Bioshock games Mafia2 JustCause2 etc. So going by the guide in the first post or these 2 videos and my specs, do you folks think I should have any problems? What about any final tweaks to the settings posted? Can they be any more exact? I understand I may have to tweak them a lil. Are those voltages considered safe?
I know it is risks in over clocking. I can not afford new stuff. I think as long as voltages are in what is said safe range I should be ok. I am more afraid of oc genie than good manual instructions.
Also my memory is sold as T1. I know it is few that is, most is or said T2 or more so because AMD can not run at T1. Well it is confusing. I think many of the stix can run T1 and or because Intel can do T2 why sell both types or different stickers and confuse folks? My system runs perfect as is. I have seen same mem on msi mobos I think P55 oc to cl7 and still T1. So I hope no probs, Or I can change it to T2 I guess? For the record I am fine @ cl9 and for the price. I was looking at some cl8 Rip Jaws but they are said Rig Jaws and MSI mobos do not like each other very much. So I picked this memory. Maybe I am thinking to much- sorry.
* Here ya go.. A mod at msi forums. Ops my bad, I see his is a 4gig kit but same timings etc..>
" H55-GD65/BIOS 1.2, i3 530 @ 3.81 GHz, Cooler Master 212+
Crucial 2x2GB CT2KIT25664BA1339, 7, 8, 8, 20, 1T, 1.47V, 1404 MHz
I would love to be in the 4GHz and above club.
Thanks for any help or more info in advance.Edited by ezgamer - 4/24/11 at 6:55am
