Wow, thanks for all the great info! Helps me a lot.
I knew I said I was bottlenecking the wrong thing, i just wasn't sure, thanks for the clarification.
I have found a guide but it isn't for my motherboard and I can't find all the features they have in mine. Also I have dug though my bios and haven't seen a way to turn off Cool n' Quiet or Turbocore, I have heard turning these things off is pretty much essential so if I can't turn them off then I don't know what to do. I'll take another look into it, maybe I just missed it, although I think I went through every option in my bios looking for it already.
I'm not expecting anything close to a miracle to come out to this mobo, I know it isn't the best, I am just hoping to get close to 4.5Ghz with it still being stable, since that is what seem to be common in the world of Overclocking.
I'll be sure to set everything to default before beginning and take control of voltages.
I think I am overclocking with the FSB, but if I just changed the Multiplier I wouldn't have to worry about the RAM? Right now my ram is running at 1600 Mhz so would changing the speed decrease the efficiency to an outstanding degree? Also, what is the difference between OC with the FSB and OC with the Multiplier, do some mobo's not have the multiplier? Because I do not remember seeing it in mine but I may have just missed it since I wasn't looking for it.
No worries on the temp, if my CPU hits anything close to 60c I am resetting it, right now it barely hitting 25c under load so to see such an increase in temperature would frighten me.
I already have Prime 95 and Core Temp, would RealTemp be better or can I just stick to CoreTemp?
Sorry for all the questions and thank you for all your help. As I said I just want to know what I am doing.
