Hello chargerfan,

Welcome to the forums. If you look to the top of the page you will see (CP) User Control Panel. If you enter this area and set down your hardware you will help us to understand your system and give better advice.

thanks,

basically, everything will load faster, and be smoother if you overclock correctly
and if you push your OC, you will see a huge preformance gain.

and welcome,
can you fill out your system info dude?

This site needs a mentoring program. Where you can volunteer to help out newbies with a setup similar to yours, or on the other hand, find guys with experience on your hardware who are willing to help.

The site is full of mentors. It's just some of them are in "Training" themselves

The motherboard for the A8V:

http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...7_a8v-e_se.pdf

You do not say what your DRAM ability is so I am going with stock value PC3200 for your Dram Configuration:

Phoenix BIOS

"Advanced Page"

JumperFree Configuration

Memory Voltage Adjustment: 2.65V
CPU Vcore Adjustment: (This is where you raise your CPU voltage)

Frequency Configuration

Spread Spectrum: Disabled
PCI-E Clock Sync. To CPU: Disabled
PCI-Ex Clock : 100MHz
PCI Clock Sync. To CPU: Disabled
PCI Clock: 33MHz
CPU Clock: 200MHz (This is where you raise your HTT (FSB)

Dram Configuration

Current Dram Frequency
Timing Mode: Manual

Memclock index value: 133 mhz (Set this to 133 to remove the Dram from the overclock equation, you will change this once you find your maximum stable overclock of the CPU)

LDT Bus Frequency from FSB: Set to 4
Cas latency (TCL) : 2.5
Min ras active time (TRAS) : 7
Ras to Cas delay (TRCD) : 3
Row precharge time (TRP) : 3
1T/2T memory timing : 1
H/W Dram over 4gb remapping : Disabled

Test for stability with Prime95 for 30minutes. If stable then increase your fsb by 5MHz.
Retest and repeat until errors occur. Lower your fsb by 5MHz when errors occur and retest
for 8 - 12hours.

This is a good baseline start. What cooler are you using?

You go to your BIOS. When you boot up your PC, hit either F1, F2, or Del. (these are the most common keys, your may use a different one)
