    Default Re: Bios Help

    I am not trying to max out the system but I would like to get more performance. I main concern is keeping the system stable, because I work on it 6-7 hours a day. I have not done much overclocking before and appreciate all the help you can give.

    I have been trying to do some research on overclocking including reading a lot of other posts and some of the guides found online but I have noticed that most of them are running ddr2 and single/ dual core processors and not the ddr3 and quad core processor like I am so I am sure the settings are different.

    I do have a question about my ram. From looking at the bios it looks like it’s clocked at 1066 and not the 1333 like it should be. (if I am reading it right. Please correct me if I am wrong) If I am reading it right how do I fix the problem?

    Sorry for the bump, with the high amount of posts in this forum I just did not buried under all the other posts. I have posted on other sites where the responces were not nearly as good as they are here.

    Thanks again
