Overclocking

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, Well after much messing and tinkering I have switched hardware a few times but here is my final setup that I am sticking with GA-N650SLI-DS4 Mobo http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Mother...=GA-N650SLI-DS4 Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13 (Clockable to 3.2) EVGA Nvidia 8800 GTX Superclocked 768 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130079 4 x Gig CORSAIR XMS2 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820145590 Seagate Barricuda 300 gig HD ProView 22" WS Soundblaster X-FI Extreme Fidelity Antec 550 HE PSU ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835186134 Now I updated everything, I am completely up to date with drivers , bios and so on. I have read alot of material on Overclocking but have not been able to achieve the results I am looking for. So far the most I can get is 320 FSB for a total of 2.52 on the processor. After 320 I get a post error on start up. I've looked on overclockers.net and have not found anything that specifically states what to do. Like if I increase to 320 do I increase my voltage on my Vcore? Do I have to OC my Ram or lower it. Basically I am a noob to this. Thanks for any help. Much Appreciated

The Vcore is at 1.35000 and I'm using CPU-Z and Core Temp. I just changed cases also to an Antec Gamer 900 and my CPU temp dropped from 41 to 31 OMG :-yellow1

You should be safe raising the vcore in small increments but watch your temps. When you up the voltage, you allow for better overclocking results but more heat will result. Don't get impatient with the process. Take your time and test for stability, and watch those temps.Here's a couple of good places for overclocking:http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/index.php?http://www.ocforums.com/index.php?Regards,Jim KarnNOTHING is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
