Need help overclocking my i5

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I want to overclock my i5 just a little bit.. Maybe to 3.2 or 3.4GHz on stock cooler... My idle temps vary from 18C to 25C, and load in my games is 50C-60C. This is with TurboBoost on and it automatically overclocks in my game to 3.0GHz-3.1GHz. The problem is I have no idea what settings to change in the BIOS.. Can someone help? Thanks.

165x21 would get you 3.4 and with SPD multi of 10 then you would get 1650MHz RAM speed

But isn't there settings in the BIOS I would have to turn on/off?

Turbo boost off, EIST off, C1E off, Speedstep off

Like Omar says: just change the Bclk to 165.
You shouldn't even have to tincker with Vcore, since this should be possible at stock voltage.
I would advice to lock it though at a value somewhere around 1,15.
Since the motherboard might use higher values then needed.

You could also leave SpeedStep on, and only turn it off if it causes instability.

Is this okay? I accidently used the OC Tuner setting in my BIOS and this is what it came up with. I'm idling at 40C now.

It's pretty much good but the timings on that RAM is way too high, you need to tighten them a.k.a decrease the numbers. change it to 9-9-9-24 for starters to return it back to stock. then work your way from there. if you need any help just ask.
