help overclocking 975 Extreme

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Can anyone give me suggestions for a first overclock (see build below). I was hoping for instructions specific to the 975 Extreme (unlocked multiplier) and maybe specific to my board and and memory.

My objective is to get my 1K worth out of this processor.

I've installed CPU-Z64 and RealTemp
I've loaded bios defaults (bios is current)

I read the very good OC article but did not know it the values asked to enter were for this chip and got kinda lost on setting the memory.


Thanks in advance. I'll try your settings and post the results.

I am a complete newbie to OC (but am reading)
