OC My Phoenix BIOS

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok. I am trying to OC my 2.6 Dual Core CPU (Intel). I have found the frequency/voltage control for this BIOS. Uh...now what?

I have speed fan and prime 95 installed already in case they are needed. Can someone walk me through how to OC this BIOS?

I read on google somewhere (I like to post here before trying because I trust you guys) that you increase it by editing the FSB and memory config and changing the FSB Memory Clock mode to either unlinked or linked(IDK which) which allows you to unlock the FSB (QDR) in Mhz field and the same for the MEM (DDR) in Mhz field.

So, if Google was correct, change the FSB up .10 or .05 Mhz at a time, increase the voltage up one "notch" at a time as well? It goes from 1.3 to 1.35 etc up to 1.6V (<--for the NB of course).

If I am wrong. please explain it in laments terms. I've never OCed or even really hardcore messed with a BIOS before. I need a little help

I wish I could help more.
But do check out this thread. Specifically this one. But do take a look at the others. You do have to do some reading, but you will find that you will learn a lot about OC'ing.

I have some intelligent guys to help me out on how to do it. The problem is I cannot find the right things to switch in the BIOS or if it's even capable and that's what I wanted to find out. I was told I need to find something in the BIOS that is the CPU multiplier. I know it's x16 on CPUz (CPUID) but I cannot find it in the BIOS. Also, I know the voltage and FSB to the NB has a lot to do with it. I just needed to know if I was right so they could help me with this MOBO or if (and where) the 200 Mhz thing is I need to find.

I could be wrong, but Phoenix BIOS, from what I heard, is horrible for overclocking. You might be very limited in your OC. But like I said, I have only heard this, so I have no proof.

Anyway, yes, like the links above, up the FSB then check for stability, then when it crashes up the voltage, but don't go too high (check the recommended temps and voltage for your cpu).

Pretty simple as long as you have an aftermarked CPU cooler. If you are running a stock cooler, I would not recommend OCing that much.

Thanks for your help. So basically: up the FSB, then after every few baby ups of the FSB (is the FSB also the external clock speed? I saw that ex clock speed = FSB/4; does that equation play in at all?) then up the voltage. But, I also read in the threads above that upping the voltage more than say 2 to 3 is most likely a bad idea. True?

But basically, up the FSB, restart, check stability, up voltage if needed?
