  i5-750 overclock: Need help tweaking 
 Date Written 
Taylor George Jan 14, 2010, 01:14am EST Report Abuse
Hey guys, i have an Asus P7P55D EVO mobo, with an i5-750 CPU, PC12800 GSKILL 2x2g RAM (F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ), running 32 bit windows vista, and a Radeon 4850 GPU. Aftermarket HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev.2 92mm

My mobo came with the TurboV feature that can "auto-tune" overclock. Upon doing this it set my overclock to 2% which doesnt seem much at all. I was running 3.1 just from a mobo switch on my old phenom x4 9950, and this only brings my i5 to 2.8ish. I have no experience overclocking really, but bought my setup with OCing in mind. I was wondering how i can get my CPU to safely run at 3.6-4.0, and get my ram to 1600+. I really want to squeeze the most out of my comp but dont have the experience in overclocking to do so on my own :(

what is the rating for your ram and make and model would help.

would you like to continue to use the turbo mode or just get a solid over clock?

for starters i would set the vcore to 1.3v and then gently increase blck in steps of 5
until it crashes and then back off

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

Here's a guide that's even specific for your mobo. Remember to only overclock incrementally to avoid burning out your hardware and make sure to run some stress tests to make sure everything's stable.

EDIT: Stupid me, forgot to post the link.

By the way, you might want to consider performing your overclocking adjustments with the hard drive disconnected and while running off a "LiveCD/DVD" or a bootable test CD/DVD such as UBCD. No chance of corrupting your OS or data that way, and memory and CPU tests are built-in. Although I've never tried using UBCD specifically in a quad-core evaluation.
