New rig overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just got my new rig and thought I'd overclock this a bit. I'm currently 4.0ghz @ 1.416v @ 41c and atm it's been 15 mins on prime 95.

Suppose it freezes (which it did a few times, had to add more voltage), what else can I do other than adding more voltage to my cpu? Should I up my NB voltage as well?

Should I try pushing over 4.0ghz if I can get it stable? I'm rather new so I don't wanna do anything that might cause permanent problems.

Tell us where your other settings are currently at, like CPU/NB Freq and voltage, ram freq and timing etc so we can better see where you're at.

NB/freq and voltage is stock
Ram is currently @ 1600 8-9-9-24-1t
Haven't really tried tightning my timings yet... what should I aim for?

At 4.0 you should have the CPU/NB Freq as high as possible, 2600-3000MHz. Required voltage probably around 1.3-1.35v (max safe 1.4-1.45v) Maintain HT Link to 2000MHz +/- 100MHz.
I'd leave ram at stock but manually entered till the rest is stabilized for now. xd1771 is the resident ram expert, I'll leave that one for him. Be sure to watch temps (I'm sure you know about that) 55c max for cpu socket temp.
