    Temperature monitor

    Riva Tuner is the best Overclocking and Monitoring tool at the moment. I used to use it with my 9800 GT , but i Use Catalyst control center with my curent Ati Sapphire 5850.
  2. I used an Multiplier of 19 becuase my Ram can only go to 1600 MHZ. If I used 21 x or 20 x I would only use 1300 - 1440 MHZ of my ram speed. But with a BCLK of 190 x 8 = 1520 MHZ which I get out of my Ram. These are my new temps at Idle. My ambient is 18C. This is how my cable managment looks. What you think?
  3. HI , I used the settings I mentioned and I am getting 1540 Mhz out of my Ram. I used 1.25 V-Core. Here is the proof of 3.6 GHZ. These are my Idle Temps. And these are my temps after running Prime95 for 2 hours. Now I am busy trying to lower the V-core from 1.25 even further. I also order 2 (Scythe 1900 rpm Slipstream) fans for my Cpu cooler. I currently have a really bad fan on it. Should drop temps by 5C. What do you guys think of my first attempt?

    Thx for the link. I will be sure to post my results. I will be overclocking to 3.6 GHZ. I will be using 390 Bclk and a 19x multiplier. This way I will get to use 1520 mhz of my DDR3 Ram kit.

    Looking for build suggestions...

    What sort of system were you looking to build. Gaming Pc, Video Editing, general use ? What is your price range.?

    Assassins Creed 2

    I can't wait for AC 2 !!!! I live in Australia nad i buy all my games from Tailand. ( These are not copies full legit ) I have preordered AC 2 $30 including shipping. Here is a link to the store. Maybe they ship to America too. Zest Interactive
  9. Thankyou for all the help. The last link you gave me really helped. I will use E-Leet to overclock in small steps. When i Reach a stable 3.6 GHz. I will put the settings in my Bios and Run Prime 95 over night. If i used a 19x multiplier and 190 bclk , it would let me get 1512 mhz out of ram in stead of using 20 x 180 bclk 1440 mhz on my ram. Is this a good idea??
  10. Hi, I am new to the forums. I have an Antec 900 2 I will be getting these parts in 3 days. And i will then Build my computer. Evga SLI Le Motherboard. Sapphire HD 5850 OCZ 12800 1600 mhz 7-7-7-24 (3 x 2 GB) Core i7 920 Corsair HX 750w Prolimatech Megahalms Cpu cooler Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste I want to overclock my cpu to 3.6 GHZ. I have seen guides about overclocking. But non of them tell you how to overclock it to 3.6 GHZ. Do you have a Link that could help me , or could you post what Timings and multipliers i would need? This is the only guide I have found so far. Would this work? " Step one: Enter the BIOS and go to the "Frequency/Voltage control" menu. Step two: Change the "CPU Host Frequency" to 180. This should be good for 3.6 GHz. Step three: Make sure the PCI-E frequency is still at 100MHz. Step four: Set the CPU Vcore up to around 1.35V Step five: Go into the "Memory Feature" submenu Step six: Set the memory frequency as close to 1600MHz as you can. With a 180MHz bclk, this will probably be around 1450MHz or so. Step seven: Make sure the first 4 memory parameters are (in this order) 7-7-7-24. Also set the last memory parameter to 2T if it isn't set to that already. Step eight: Go back to the main "Frequency/Voltage control" menu, and make sure the DIMM voltage is set to 1.5V. Step nine: Leave all other voltages on auto, and then go into the "CPU feature" menu. Disable Turbo Mode. Step ten: Set the "QPI frequency selection" to the lowest option.

    I meant I will get the 3 x 2 GB OCZ kit. Are there any good overclocking guides which will help me overclock to 3.4 - 3.6 ghz? After running Prime 95 for 24 hours and i am happy. Maybe i will overclock higher. I have had experience overclcoking Graphic cards , but not CPUs. I overclocked my Gigabyte 9800 Gt Core clock from 650 mhz to 850 mhz , my memory from 800 - 1050.

    Hi, I am new to the forums. I have an Antec 900 2 case already. THIS IS WHAT i want to upgrade too. Evga SLI Le Motherboard. Sapphire HD 5850 OCZ 12800 1600 mhz 7-7-7-24 Core i7 920 Corsair HX 750w Prolimatech Megahalms Cpu cooler Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste I will be overclocking the CPU to 3.6 GHZ after running stress tests for a while. What are your thoughts on what i want to upgrade too. I live in Australia so Telling me about places to buy the stuff in the States won't help. Are there any guides for a building a computer you could reccomend?
