Hello People of Pure OC,
This is my first posting here Id firstly like to thank you for letting me join and for the wealth of information that I have found and have been reading the past few days.
I have A i7-950 on a Asus P6X58D-E, love the system, a friend helpped me a year ago to try and get the ram running at 1600 mhz, but we were only able to get it going to 1202mhz and the cpu OC to 3.45 ( on stock cooling ) Had major problems with not getting the ram going basically everthing is on auto we did change the bblck and one or two other settings, system has been running stable no BSOD at all, but i want to get it up there to what it can handle stable for gaming. I have a low end graphics card atm, Have a hd 6970 on order. Power supply is most likely going to need to be changed soon to cope.
Yesterday I have just installed a CoolerMaster V8 CPU Cooler.
Several Questions I hope someone can help me out with, I have a rough idea of what I am doing, but some terminology / correct names of certain features go straight on past me.
1, I have seen here people have posted there bios settings, as in basically what it looks like in bois but typed out not a picture. Is there a program that will suck that information out of bios or is it a manual type in bios template document?
Asus Bios Version 0405
2, With the V8 now on my system roughly (I know theres alot of variants temps ambient, loacation hardware etc) Will I be able to get this closer to 3.8-maybe touch higher on air. Am in New Zealand, room temps around 21-24 degrees.
2a, I would Like to get my Ram G-SKILL 1600mhz tripple channel running at its 1600, instead of its 1202 that its currently set at
3, If this is the wrong thread to be asking help in, I appologise.
Thank you in advance
