Voltage and/or ratios?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Intel 840 EE came running at 3.0ghz on my Gigabyte 8I955X Royal motherboard. This is when I started testing the waters with overclocking. I raised the Ratio from 15 to 16 and got my 3.2ghz. Now I want more so I kept going up until 19 at 3.8ghz crashed into blue screen. If I raise my CPU voltage one step from 1.3750 to 1.3875 my temp goes up about 8-10C. Not a problem as it only reaches 50C under a load. I can raise my Ratio and FSB with no temp gains but is that really speeding it up? It seems quicker but it could be in my mind.

Is the EasyTune utility gigabyte ships with thier motherboards a decent utility for monoriting temps?

Thanks for any help,
My System

not sure how good the Gigabyte utility is first hand, but you can download Speefan for free and it's a really good program. Can even check temps on HD if the HD has the ability.




As for overclocking, definatly check out the guides here for that.

FSB increases do result in faster speeds........many CPUs don't even have the ability to change the multiplier.......
