Intel Allows Overclocking!!!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
After reading a couple of the articles Inspire posted here...
http://www.overclock.net/news-overcl...955-intel.html
It seems that Intel has seen the light and is supplying unlocked bios settings for overclocking on their new 975XBX motherboards. What will they think of next?
YEAH!!! Intel...way to go.

Do these new boards allow for FSB adjustement, or merely multiplier? I only see that the new chips were overclocked via multiplier, and while higher CPU frequency will increase performance, higher operating frequency+higher FSB will yield the best performance...

Unlike previous Intel desktop motherboards though, the D975XBX is loaded with "enthusiast" oriented features that give user's the ability to alter voltages and bus speeds, to easily overclock the CPU. Take a look - this isn't a motherboard you'd expect to come directly from Intel.

From this article in Hothardware......
I think this guy tested with multiplier only to avoid changing other settings.
I guess we'll have to wait a bit for sure.

I have this Motherboard, and have only played around with the clock multiplier, not with the FSB. It does have FSB settings though.

I like the fact that it automatically adjusts the core voltage based upon the multiplier setting which has worked well for me. I'm in the process of switching from the Zalman 9500 to water cooling so I can see how high it can go. I'm hoping for around 4.5GHz for daily, but I could probably squeeze more out of it if I wanted.

As soon as the Bigwater 745 is installed I will begin the process
