I know alot about oc'ing the quads in 775 socket era lol.
Tips can be appreciated and bios are a little hugely different than i expected. I don't wanna screw things up but yea i'd love to go 4ghz or 3.4
blck is the base clock , my bios is set up like so .. 22x177 + turbo = 24x177 = 4.248Ghz @ 1.408v .
22x175 = 3.8Ghz , 22x170 = 3.7Ghz , 22x165 = 3.6Ghz , 22x160=3.5Ghz , 22x155=3.4Ghz ( turbo on , will give you 24x multi )
20x200 = 4.0Ghz , 20x190 = 3.8Ghz , 20x180 = 3.6Ghz , 20x170 = 3.4Ghz
Depending on what ram you have i would set it on quite low while you get your overclock sorted , once thats done put the ram multi so its sitting close to stock freq or just a tad overclocked ..usually if left on auto it will sort out the best frq for your ram at the speeds u selected .
Then you will need to work out your voltages to run your overclock , anything 4Ghz and lower i would leave all the voltages on auto and just set the vcore to whatever your overclock is stable at .
If you need a hand with anything let me know , i5 760 is similar to my i7 870 just no hyperthreading so you will have lower temps to start with .. U shuld hit similar clocks to me since u got a h70 now
dont be afraid to get more out of ur cpu.Edited by Xristo - 12/14/10 at 3:17pm
