Perfected MAX Overclock for GA-73VM-S2

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,
OK, I'm new to Overclocking so I have been learning by doing for the past few months now, and I have noticed that I'm not the only one asking how to overclock the "budge board" GA-73VM-S2 and to get max performance for 24/7 use. I am going to keep this short and sweet, I have discovered the only way to get MAX performance on this board is to Unlink the Ram from the CPU, but you normally would have to get the right speed for your PC otherwise it would freeze instantly.

So for anyone who wants to get MAX performance on this board, set your speeds to the following. Please note that this only works with a Intel: Core 2 Quad Q6600 and other Intel Processors will vary.

-Open your Bio's by pressing DEL
-Press CTRL+F1 to open advanced options (optional)
-Go to 'MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T)"
-Set the Multiply to "X9"
-Set the vCore to "Normal"
-Set Timings to "Optimal" (CTRL+F1 to Access)
-Open "FSB & Memory Config"
-Set "FSB-Memory Clock Mode" from Auto > Unlinked
-Set "Current CPU Freq" 266>325
-Set the "Memory Clock" 800>870

Go Back to the Menu
-Open "PC Health Status"
-Set "Smart Fan Control" Auto > Disabled
-Enable everything else (Set "System Fan" & "CPU Fan Warning" to 80c

Go Back to the Menu
-Open Advanced BIO's Features
-Disable the Following settings, "CPU Enhanced Halt, Thermal Monitor 2 & EIST Function"
-Set Frame Buffer Size 128 > 265

Save to the BIO's and thats IT!
This has been stable for over 24 hours for me and I'm sure it will stay stable for you.

Note: If using Windows 7 you might need to set your Power Settings to "High Performance" if your using this in a High Speed demanding game. To do this, go to Computer > Control Panel > Power Options > Set from Balanced > High Performance.

I hope this helped some people, If you have any questions don't be afraid to post them here.

Cheers,
DeceptioN. #_-*

Looks like a good OC. This is a budget board and they rarely OC well C2Qs, so well done.
