getting back to modding pc's after years of not

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey all! im new here and havent overclocked anything in years and years, i just put together a new pc and atm im trying to a. work the bugs out and b. get it overclocked (but nothing thats getting to dangerous levels for what i got)

i havent really touched any of the bios settings cause i think im gonna need to read up on overclocking agin since i seem to have forgotten everything i once knew about it

anyways i have a ASUS P6X58D-E mobo, a i7 930 cpu, a Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B Cooler with a 120mm fan clipped to it, 6gig of G.Skill DDR3-2000 and a 650w power supply stuffed in a antec 900 case with 3 120mm intake fans, 1 120mm and 1 200mm exhaust fan
atm the ram isnt running at 2000 its showing 1066.. thats my glitch to a normal pc atm

any help you could give me about how to configure bios to get a fast stable overclock going on would be VERY welcome since im a lil lost atm

Fill out your system specs here

Next, Is there a profile setting in your BIOS for memory? Some RAM won't run at full speed unless you change the profile. Or you might need to OC you CPU to get it to 2000. You'll have to look up the equations to figure that out though, they're out there!

k got the system specs in there for the most part now to bios options

lets see now only thing i can see having to do with memory are

DRAM frequency
DRAM DATA REF Voltage on CHA
DRAM CTRL REF Voltage on CHA
then those previous 2 for CHB and CHC
and DRAM timing control which i have no idea about but that should be 9-9-9-24? but isnt

heres a link to the mobo user guide if you wanna see what bios gives me to work with

search around there should probably be a forum somewhere with a guide to all that stuff specifically for your MoBo or you could try to start one here on the OCN forum if anything. sorry I can't be of further assistance
