Help needed OC'ing my i5 760

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Was wondering if someone could help me better understand what I need to set my voltages to. I just can't seem to get above 3.8 ghz. It's not stable. I'm using x.m.p. mode. Should I be using manual mode? Currently my bclk is only set to 177 and core v. at 1.262 dram is set to 1.60 volts. Is there something I'm overlooking or don't understand yet? I am new to oc'ing and appreciate the help.

keep the ram at 1600mhz unlinked and just overclock the CPU clock and you should have stability. If you don't it could be a bad power supply that's not supplying a clean power source.
