overclocking with asus turboV evo

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone

I am new for overclocking. Of course I got some experiences on oveclocking but they were minor. And now, I want to push my CPU to 3.5 GHz or above. I listed my sistem appereances below:

ASUS P6T SE X58 Socket
Intel Core i7 920 @2.67GHz
OCZ 4GB (2*2) Kit Platinum Edition DDR3 1333MHz CL7
Sapphire HD5870 GDDR5 1GB 256Bit
Seagate 1TB 32MB 7200RPM SATA-II NCQ
Thermaltake Toughpower 750W
CoolerMaster HAF 922 MidT ATX
Win7 64-Bit Professional

I am using only stock fan which is standart and came with CPU. And I want to use ASUS TurboV EVO program to overclock. Because My new BIOS of motherboard comes to me very confusing, complex. Its being new is why it comes to me complex.

Please Just let/tell me (to) know how can I do it with ASUS TurboV Evo. "Auto tuning" sections of program is safe way to do it?



Thanks for coming helps.

No it is NOT. Programs that overclock your cpu is very UNSTABLE. Asus softwares are known to be crap crap crap! I RECOMMEND you do it manually via bios. Time to learn my friend! Plus i highly recommend you get a aftermarket cooler cuz a stock cooler won't be enough to cool down your processor! It's a i7 for god's sake and they get HOT!

TurboV is ok if you do just some small adjustments but OC'ing from the BIOS is much better =]

Two advices:
1) TurboV EVO is a hardware based software in the sense that there is an onboard chip that runs a little stability program to determine a mild overclock, according to Asus. If I recall correctly, only Asus' P55 motherboards have this function. I am afraid your P6T SE (X58) does not have it. So, it is better to use the basic TurboV overclocking utility.

2) Even though you intend to overclock mildly (~3.5GHz), it is still better to change to an aftermarket HSF. Megahalems, TRUE and Noctua NH-D14 are top of the line air-coolers now.

I tried it Turbo V because I am also new. Unless I barely adjusted anything it made everything unstable. I followed everyones advice on this site and went into the BIOS. Being new I was kind of freaked out. I ended following this guide and with the guide and some useful PM's from people here I was able to get a good stable OC for my usage. Hope this helps

It's best if you use the BIOS for overclock. Although software will work too, but you'll still need to get into your BIOS to overclock.

Increase the BCLK by a little bit (5-10MHz), run Prime95 or whatever your preferred stability software is. If it fails, then increase the voltage(s) and run it again, repeat the process until you get your desired overclock.

The BIOS has more control while overclocking since it has all the necessary options to do so.

In the end, overclock your computer by using both the BIOS and/or TurboV, that's what I used and it worked out fine

I also found the ASUS BIOS confusing until I got used to it. It's worth it to learn though and much more reliable than a software overclock. Just post your questions about the BIOS here and myself and others will help you learn.

Software OC'ing and "Auto" settings are actually the unsafe, unstable way to do it, if anything. Use the BIOS, and replace "Auto" with the default voltage for that setting, if nothing else.
