post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey everyone here are my specs

-AMD Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor 2.80ghz (6 cores are unlocked)
-ASUS M4A88T-M Motherboard
-evga gtx 580 oc edition video card
-12gb ddr3 memory
-windows 7 64 bit os
-cool master 922 haf case with 3 fans
-corsair 750w power supply with 80 plus
-22 inch benq led monitor

i have been always wanting to oc my cpu to a good level but i never have done it in bios so i went to the asus website and someone told me to try asus turbo v which i downloaded.

i just dont know how to use this program..here are the settings as is:

cpu frequency 200
cpu voltage 1.325
dram voltage 1.590
cpu/nb voltage 1.15

if i want to change these settings to increase the cpu what should i change it to mind you there are 3 default settings called race car, jet plane, and rocket...and also i have my stock fan inside.
mind you ive never overclocked from the bios so i want to give this a try ...any help would be great...thanks

If you want to OC from the bios:

boot your computer
repeatedly hit delete
When the ASUS screen flashes, it'll take you to the BIOS.
at first, just adjust the CPU Ratio.
You can tinker with everything else after that.
As you increase the frequencies, incrementally increase the voltages, bit by bit.
Don't exceed 1.7V on the CPU.
Don't exceed 1.4 on the NB.
Remember, as you increase frequencies and especially voltages, your system will heat up.

Good luck, hope this helps some.

You can forget about ever OC-ing the x6 on that board
(unheatsinked 4+1 power phase + 125W Phenom II x6 = death sentence)

Also, is the 12GB 3x4GB? That is not optimal for performance; I recommend you either remove 1 DIMM or add 1 DIMM to run proper dual channel which performs much better all-around. And yes, the difference is noticeable.

You want to run DIMMs in pairs of two or four for dual channel. It boosts performance significantly. AMD does not support triple channel.

$63 for 1333 CL8. Oh boy, what a ripoff. TigerDirect has one of the poorest RAM selections out there. For that price point somewhere else you could've gotten a 2x2GB 1600 7-8-7 kit (capable of either 1600 6-8-6 or 2000 9-9-9) for that same price.
Since you got the packs in 1x4GB you can return one of the DIMMs to run proper dual channel if you don't mind less RAM (or buy more if you wish). I do recommend you go for something else though. If buying at Newegg doesn't bother you (as well as 4x2GB/8GB RAM only) get the G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 CL7 for $65 a pop.
