Reccommend me Overclock settings for Q9550 + Gigabyte EP45-UD3P.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So i've had this setup for a year or two inside an antec 900 two case. i've been slightly underclocked (i think around 2.8 or 2.9 ghz) but i've been wanting to try overclocking it for a while (and i've been aware for a while that i can easily do this, i've just been afraid of wrecking something haha)

so on that note, is there any specific set of setting someone can reccommend me? i dont have additional cooling besides fans, but if you guys have a good withing-a-budget-of-maybe-$100-or-so reccommendation for a cooling system, feel free to reccommend away.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Since from your post, I assume that you're new to OC-ing, so click here.

Now OC-ing isn't recommended on a stock cooler. There is many air coolers to be had in that budget, one of the best performing with low cost is the Hyper 212+.

Here is a massive thread about the board you have. Here.

Another thing, you could add your system specs using this link here.

Anyways, a lot of the questions you have asked could be answered using the search function that is available on this site.

Overclocking doesn't work that way. We can give you some round-about numbers but they would be worthless as you would have to go in and tweak them to get everything set to what you need it to be. Each system is different, and by each system I mean each individual piece of hardware, even CPU's of the same Revision/Batch/Model all clock differently at different voltages. You have to learn the process and overclock it yourself if you truly want an overclock. The post above me has some great links to get you started. Get to reading, that's the best place to start.
