    Take a look at the 4GHz club thread lots of info in there, it would be the best way to start.

    Yes Qber,

    SMDUFF and Doctor hit it on the head. It is difficult to overclock unless you have a better grip on what each setting does. That is good reading material.

    I would start off by disabling C1E and all your power saving things in bios. Turn off Turbo. Leave everything on auto.

    You need to understand what the multi and Bclock do. A 20 multi and 200 Blcock give you 4000 Mhz or 4.0 Ghz. A 21 multi and 200 Bclock give you 4200MHz or 4.2Ghz.

    There are also multi's for your ram. When you raise Bclock, the ram and NB also increase so you have to be careful to hit stability in all areas.

    I would leave most everything on "auto" to start just to see how high you can get starting out. You will need to run a stress test to check stability. Linx, prime95 and Intelburn are used by most. Intel users prefer Linx at 20 passes and 25,000 problems. Here is a link to D/L LinX:
    http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=201670

    You need to watch temps under load. Most recommend 75 degrees celcius or under when stress testing. I let go to about 80. This will ensure longer life with your chip.....

    Also remember Intel recommends max voltage on memory at 1.65V to ensure longevity with the chip. Do not exceed 1.65V.

    Hope this starts you off.

    Start off with everything on auto with the power saving options off like I mentioned. Slowly take your bclock up and run 10 passes in LinX. If you pass, take the bclock up a little higher. You need to find max overclock on STOCK voltage which would probably be in the 3.8Ghz neighborhood. Once you find the max, then you can start to raise the CPU voltage and do the same. Once you hit a good overclock, run the 20 pass 25,000 problems with Linx. pass and your system is 98% stable. The longer you run a stress test you will be assured of stability. I passed 20 passes 1 time and ran a 100 pass test. Failed 98 passes. That is a little extreme but if you pass 20, you will be stable for everyday applications.


    Do not go nuts with the ram. I would start at 1600MHz range. Too high of memory frequencies can make your ram unstable and give you a headache. Once you reach a decent overclock you are happy with, you can raise the ram multi and see if you pass there. If your ram is rated at 1600MHz you will not need much voltage increase if you start at 1600MHz. When you hit 1700 MHz(by raising bclock) you can raise it to 1.6V or so.......

    I always start with loose timings on ram. Once I hit a good overclock, I tighten them up.

    I just noticed you have 1800MHz ram. Start out at 1600 MHz at stock voltage and timings and you should be good to go. Next look at my boobie avatar... Bouncing babies!!!!!
