Entering BIOS Values Manually

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone

I am new to this forum and would like to ask you guys for some help.

Just over two weeks ago I build my first system and have to say it was an enjoyable experience. How I am wanting to see what i can overclock my system too. I was reading on some other forums and the best way that they said was to ov erclock was by the BIOS and enter all the values for the CPU and Ram manually. I have been trying to find out what the values are by searching different forums and different people are saying different things, so it has got me a little confused. Would any one be able to tell me what the values are so I can enter them manually into the BIOS? Mys system is as follows:

Asus Crosshair IV Formula
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
ThermalTake Frio
Saphire HD 6870 ATI
Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 7
1TB Western Digital WD1002FAEX Caviar Black
Sony Optical DVD Writer, AD-7260S-0B
Corsair CMPSU-850HXUK HX 850W Modular Power Supply
Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced Dominator

Thank you for your help in advance.

Hi.

You could start out by using the "Auto" settings in the BIOS and make notes of what the values are, then start tweaking from there.

Pay close attention to voltages (CPU, NB, DIMM's) and the timing settings of the RAM as these factors will be of importance both in stability and longevity.
